Big news Wirexers! 

Early access to the brand-new, next-gen Wirex card empowering borderless spending in crypto* and traditional currency is here! The card can be seen today at the Singapore FinTech Festival and promises to change the payments landscape in Asia for good.

For the first time, Wirex customers in Singapore can be the first to try out their very own contactless Wirex travelcard – and it’s more versatile, more flexible and more powerful than ever before. Designed to be the perfect travel companion, the multicurrency Wirex card lets you pay the way you want whether you’re heading abroad for business, leisure or anything in between.

Can your current travelcard…

  • Seamlessly spend more than 150 currencies? 
  • Convert and use your crypto or traditional currencies to spend at more than 54 million locations worldwide? *
  • Free international ATM withdrawals? 
  • Earn up to 1.5% back in Bitcoin on all in-store purchases, wherever you are?

We didn’t think so. The multicurrency Wirex travelcard does all of the above and more. There are no card or account management fees, and you also benefit from free traditional currency exchange and free worldwide ATM withdrawals for a limited time to help you get your Wirex journey up-and-running. Plus, the first 2000 people to order and activate their cards will get an exclusive 20 Nano bonus!

The early access Wirex card is part of a wider rollout in the Asia Pacific region. This includes 19 secure, cold-storage traditional and cryptocurrency accounts (in USD, SGD, AUD, JPY, HKD, EUR, GBP, CZK, MXN, CAD, CHF, BTC, ETH, LTC, XRP, WXT, DAI, NANO and XLM), as well as access to live Over-The-Counter (OTC) and interbank rates for crypto and traditional currency exchanges – more-or-less the best rates available anywhere.

It also represents a huge step forward in our mission to provide people around the world with customer-centric alternatives to conventional banks and payment platforms – not to mention our overall quest to facilitate the mass adoption of the token economy. In the words of our founder and CEO Pavel Matveev: 

“We have witnessed an explosion in demand for hybrid fiat and crypto-enabled banking alternatives across Asia. People need payments that are redesigned for the future, allowing them to unlock the full value of their different currencies. The evolution of Wirex’s offering in the region represents more than just the next stage in our growth strategy; it is a tangible example of our mission to provide a genuine alternative to conventional financial services by connecting traditional and digital ecosystems on one borderless payment platform.”
