Take control of your money with lightning fast deposit speeds

April 22, 2018 11:01 am Published by

The majority of major Bitcoin exchanges make you wait days or (all too often) weeks before you can start using your account.

First, you wait weeks to get your account verified. Then you wait even longer to deposit funds into your account and start buying Bitcoin.

With Wirex, you can instantly deposit funds into your account, then convert them straight to Bitcoin. No delays. No lengthy verification procedures. Pay the price YOU want to pay, not the one you get whenever your exchange decides to deposit your funds.

Here’s what you need to get started with Wirex

Want to buy Bitcoin for the first time, or switch to Wirex from another exchange? It’s quick, easy and free.

You can sign up for a Wirex account in minutes, with no fees for opening an account – and you’ll immediately get a free virtual payment card.

When you’re ready to buy, simply verify your account to get access to all of our features. Unlike other exchanges, Wirex verifies your account in minutes, not weeks. Even if you require a manual check (necessary in some countries), you’ll still be good to go in under 2 days.

All you need to do is provide us with some basic information about you, not heaps of personal details.

As soon as your account is verified, you can add funds using a variety of payment methods. Wirex accepts bank transfer, credit cards, PayPal, Alipay and more in major currencies such as euros, dollars, pounds, yen, and others.

You can even top up your account with Bitcoin from another wallet, or with altcoins like Ethereum, Litecoin, Monero, Namecoin, Zcash, Peercoin, and others. We’re always adding new payment methods to ensure no one is left out.

Once you’ve funded your account, you can instantly buy your desired amount of Bitcoin and have it deposited straight to your account.

It’s completely effortless and you don’t need any technical knowledge. You can use our Bitcoin exchange and manage everything from one handy app, no matter where you are in the world.

Protect yourself and your family during financial crises

Financial disasters do happen. Just because there hasn’t been one for a while or you haven’t experienced one during your life, that doesn’t mean it’s not a risk.

Fiat currencies can collapse with very little warning. Governments can seize YOUR money from YOUR account during severe budget deficits. Hyperinflation is still a big problem in many countries.

You could wake up one day and find your bank account empty. You could also wake up one day and find that hyperinflation has reduced the value of your life savings to almost nothing. You could even be left helpless if your country’s major currency collapses.

That’s why many people choose to keep Bitcoin in a secure Wirex wallet as a hedge against financial disaster. Bitcoin is decentralised and can’t be seized by the government because it truly belongs to you.

Keeping even a small part of your assets in crypto is a smart choice to protect you and your family in the event of a disaster. As Wirex offers the best security around, there’s no safer place to store your money. In the event of a disaster, you can use your payment card to spend crypto online and in-store with no extra hassle

For instance, this is popular in countries like Argentina and Zimbabwe, where the local currency is volatile and the banks are prone to problems.

Don’t miss out on investment opportunities

The best time to buy is naturally during a dip when you can get more Bitcoin for the same amount of money. But most exchanges are too slow for you to take advantage of investment opportunities.

With Wirex, you can spot an opportunity and jump on it – anytime, anywhere.
