New Funding Options for our Russian Customers
This week, we’ve made it even easier for our customers in Russia to fund their accounts by allowing top-ups using domestic bank cards. Our users can now link their bank-issued credit or debit card to their Wirex account in order to buy digital currencies on the platform, part of a bigger plan to eventually bring a full feature roll-out to the world’s largest country.
Enabling card top-ups means that verified Wirex customers in Russia can quickly and easily purchase cryptocurrencies including BTC, ETH, LTC, XRP, DAI and WXT.
Our CEO and co-founder, Pavel Matveev, said that “we are constantly striving to make it easier for our customers to use their crypto currencies seamlessly. That’s why we are excited to give users in Russia the ability to load their Wirex accounts using their domestic bank card. It means more options and more convenience.”
The move to diversify funding options is just the latest example of Wirex’s continued product and market innovation. You probably saw the news that our platform recently reached a milestone of 3 million users and will launch services in the US shortly, with expansion into further territories just around the corner. Matveev is enthusiastic about expanding Wirex activities in the country, adding that “Wirex already has a large database of users in Russia who are very excited about bridging the gap between their crypto and traditional currency”.
Whether you’re a Russian customer or not, join the expanding Wirex community and open a Wirex account, and find out for yourself how easy it is to buy, hold, exchange and spend multiple currencies on our platform.
