E-Coin Is Rebranding as Wirex

We are in the final stages of the E-Coin to Wirex rebranding. The official and final announcement will be circulated soon. This article answers some common questions about the change from the E-Coin platform to Wirex.

 

Q: I am an E-Coin user. I have an E-Coin card. Do I have to create a Wirex account to continue using my card?

A: No, you don’t have to create a new account. All E-Coin accounts and cards will be 100% compatible with your Wirex account.
