Digital payments platform, Wirex, today announced their partnership with Zero Hash to support their upcoming US launch. This will allow Wirex to launch their revolutionary product across the United States in April, giving over 300 million Americans instant access to crypto.
Utilizing the services of Zero Hash, a crypto trading infrastructure platform owned by Seed CX, Wirex, the London-based fintech will now be able to launch fully into 51 jurisdictions in the US.
The companies are shared advocates of the mass adoption of the digital economy. They also share the mission of empowering everyone to have straightforward access to crypto.
Wirex serves nearly 3.5 million people across more than 130 countries, in which they offer an award-winning product that allows users to buy, hold, exchange and sell up to 20 different traditional and cryptocurrencies from a single, and intuitive app. This is linked to a contactless crypto-enabled debit card, giving users the ability to spend crypto in over 61 million locations globally.
Wirex made headlines recently, by becoming only the second crypto-enabled company to receive Visa principal membership, and have imminent plans to launch X-Tras, upgrading their rewards scheme, Cryptoback. The feature will reward users up to 2% back in WXT on any purchases with their Wirex card.
Harold Montgomery, Managing Director of Wirex USA, has been leading the partnership and expressed his excitement about the upcoming launch: “Wirex has already proven hugely popular in other countries across the globe, so it’s exciting that we have reached one of our last big milestones in the run up to our US launch. It’s integral that we carefully select reliable and experienced partners such as Zero Hash for this to ensure that the Wirex product continues to give everyone cheap, seamless and safe access to crypto.”
This was complemented by Edward Woodford, CEO of Zero Hash, who said: “We are pleased that Zero Hash is powering Wirex’s US crypto expansion. Zero Hash provides the infrastructure enabling Wirex to rapidly expand into the United States, introducing an exciting product that is loved by clients globally to market there. Through the partnership, Wirex enables clients to seamlessly purchase and sell crypto, allows peer-to-peer crypto transfers and crypto rewards.”
With an ambition to reach 10 million customers by the end of 2021, the highly anticipated US-wide launch in April this year will play a key role in helping Wirex achieve this.
