A bigger Wirex means better exchange rates for you — introducing the W-Pay liquidity pool

September 18, 2017 3:18 pm Published by

If you’re familiar with bitcoin exchanges you’ll know the price of bitcoin is different on every exchange with constant price fluctuations based on market volatility, supply and demand.

When one bit of bad news lands (usually from China), bitcoin drops like a rock… for a day or two, and then continues its rise to the moon.

And regardless of where you buy your bitcoin, you want a fair price – just as you deserve.

Wirex calculates our exchange rate based on a pool of liquidity providers who compete with each other, we take the best price bid the moment you buy bitcoin from our app.

Today, we are opening up that liquidity pool to new providers to meet our growing customer demand and ensure you get the best possible exchange rate despite the short-term market conditions.

Some investor hopefuls currently attempt to time the market by using trading exchanges, only to find that fees and instant price fluctuations eat away their profits if they trade too often.

Instead, we give you direct access to a global network of deep financial pools for bitcoins, dollars, pounds and euro — with more currencies coming soon, including various cryptocurrencies such as Dash, Litecoin and so on.

This means you get the best possible rate, with minimum fuss, and maximum security via your Wirex crypto wallet, app and card combo.

Although ‘W-Pay’ is technically a business product for merchants, trading exchanges and financial institutions, it is implemented with our Wirex users in mind. A bigger network means lower prices for you.
