15 New Coins and X-Accounts Success
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Wirex. Today we’re marking the milestone of adding 15 new coins to our platform as well as celebrating the success of X-Accounts, which now have over $10 million worth of funds secured in them!
With an explosion of interest in the decentralised finance (DeFi) space in recent years, we’ve sought to develop our product to give nearly 4 million customers worldwide the ability to take advantage of this. Since 7th June, we’ve added 15 tokens from some of the most popular DeFi players*. These include:
- Universal Market Access (UMA)
- OMG Network (OMG)
- Basic Attention Token (BAT)
- 0x (ZRX)
- Synthetix (SNX)
- FTX Token (FTT)
- Loopring (LRC)
- Kyber Network (KNC)
- Curve (CRV)
- Compound (COMP)
- SushiSwap (SUSHI)
- Augur (REP)
- Bancor (BNT)
- Balancer (BAL)
These 15 join the other DeFi coins that were added in May:
Since then, we’ve made headlines globally after releasing our game-changing X-Accounts. We’re on a mission to offer one of the world’s most accessible interest-paying accounts ever, and have already seen nearly $10 million worth of funds stored in across more than 9,000 accounts, which continues to grow at an astronomical rate.
Unprecedented when compared to competitors and high-street banks, X-Accounts offer users the ability to earn up to 16% interest** back and demonstrates the staggering demand for next-generation DeFi services.
Pavel Matveev, CEO and Co-Founder of Wirex, said that:
“Democratising access to crypto, and now DeFi, has always been at the heart of Wirex, and no better has this been demonstrated by the huge excitement of our customers over the last few months. The rollout of tokens from leading DeFi projects, as well as the incredible popularity of X-Accounts has cemented our position as a market-leader, and we hope to continue to innovate to ensure our commitment to the digital economy.”
Over the coming months, Wirex will continue to develop the list of tokens on offer and release new features for X-Accounts.
