One of the most popular topics in recent weeks is about the blockchain fee.

Is the blockchain fee charged by Wirex?

No, it’s a fee charged by the global blockchain network and fluctuates based on real-time network capacity.

Many more app updates are coming over the next few months — including a feedback feature inside the app so you can submit ideas to help us improve.
