Today, we announced a partnership with Zero Hash to support Wirex’s upcoming US launch in April, allowing us to launch across the country and give over 300 million Americans instant access to crypto.

Who are Zero Hash?

Zero Hash are a crypto trading infrastructure platform owned by Seed CX. At Wirex, we will utilise their services to be able to launch fully into 51 jurisdictions in the US. Both our companies are shared advocates of the mass adoption of the digital economy, and are on a mission to empower everyone to have straightforward access to crypto. What is Wirex? At Wirex, we already serve nearly 3.5 million people across more than 130 countries, offering an award-winning product that allows users to buy, hold, exchange and sell up to 20 different traditional and cryptocurrencies from a single, and intuitive app. This is linked to a contactless crypto-enabled debit card, giving users the ability to spend crypto in over 61 million locations globally. You might have heard of us after we made headlines recently, by becoming only the second crypto-enabled company to receive Visa principal membership. We’ve also got imminent plans to launch X-Tras, upgrading our rewards scheme, Cryptoback™. The feature will reward our users with up to 2% back in WXT on any purchases with their Wirex card.

What the Teams Have to Say

Harold Montgomery, the Managing Director of Wirex USA, has been leading the partnership, and told us how excited he was about the upcoming launch:

“Wirex has already proven hugely popular in other countries across the globe, so it’s exciting that we have reached one of our last big milestones in the run up to our US launch. It’s integral that we carefully select reliable and experienced partners such as Zero Hash for this to ensure that the Wirex product continues to give everyone cheap, seamless and safe access to crypto.”

Edward Woodford, CEO of Zero Hash, also said:

“We are pleased that Zero Hash is powering Wirex’s US crypto expansion. Zero Hash provides the infrastructure enabling Wirex to rapidly expand into the United States, introducing an exciting product that is loved by clients globally to market there. Through the partnership, Wirex enables clients to seamlessly purchase and sell crypto, allows peer-to-peer crypto transfers and crypto rewards.”

We have a target of reaching 10 million customers by the end of 2021, and the highly anticipated US-wide launch in April will play a key role in helping us achieve this.
