December at Wirex

January 11, 2019 9:05 am Published by

We ended 2018 with a stack of product improvements, extra security features, a smoother user journey and even more places around the world for you to spend your crypto and traditional currencies. It’s been a big year of expansion for us internally too – we’ve grown our staff from a modest team of 30 in Kyiv and London to a team of 270 with offices in Japan, Canada, the USA and Singapore.

Here are our December highlights:

On your marks, Wirex Business customers

Wirex Business is on its way! We’re in the early stages of product development, creating a dynamic service for our business customers. We’ll be one of the first platforms to offer secure crypto-enabled accounts for businesses that can be registered directly under your business name. We’re about to start beta testing this brand new platform – if you’re interested in applying, you can find out more here.

Christmas at Wirex

On the 20th, our London office closed the doors early to celebrate the end of another great year. With staff from the USA and Canada offices in tow, we had our official Wirex Christmas party in Marylebone, London with a night of dinner, drinks, some in-house awards and a lot of dancing. A speech from our co-founder Pavel Matveev rounded off the year, revealing exciting prospects for 2019. Watch this space!

A final milestone for 2018

Thanks to the hard work of our teams across the globe and our loyal customers spreading the word about the Wirex app, we ended the year with a record 2 million registered users! As well as a huge increase in personnel, our business grew four-fold in 2018 and we hope to continue on this trajectory.
