Wirex alternatives

1 3,145

Wirex has had a generally great year in 2018, being the first crypto debit card provider to recover from the WaveCrest VISA ban, the best UK card provider and the only service offering cashback on crypto purchases (read more in the Wirex review). Still, if you are looking for Wirex alternatives for some reason, this guide will investigate them.

Wirex alternative for buying Bitcoin

Wirex is a platform that allows buying Bitcoin (as well as LTC, XRP, ETH) with a credit card or a bank account. If you are looking for services that do the same, consider these:

Cex.io if you’re not a US or EU resident (instant credit/debit card purchases of BTC, ETH, BCH, BTG, DASH, XRP, XLM, ZEC)

Coinbase if you are a US resident

Bitpanda if you are an EU resident.

Wirex alternatives for cryptocurrency exchange

Wirex is somewhat limited in cryptocurrency exchange functionality – but you can still exchange BTC, LTC, XRP and ETH between one another. If you are looking for an alternative site to exchange crypto consider Coinswitch.

Alternative to the Wirex crypto debit card

Things are looking not as good here because Wirex is one of the best crypto debit card products out there. The only similar crypto debit card is the Naga Card that went live recently. See the complete Naga Card vs Wirex comparison.

Bitnovo and Revolut could also work for you if you need to spend your crypto and you’re from the EU. Check this document for details, or read the Revolut vs Wirex review.

Spectrocoin used to be somewhat an alternative (read Spectrocoin review) but their cards got discontinued again in September 2018.
