> Sign up to Wirex<
Wirex has just announced the coming of the following in March 2018:
- New updated currency accounts with the ability to buy Bitcoin;
- Virtual cards – immediately according to the timeline,
- Plastic contactless Bitcoin cards – within the next 4-5 weeks (by the end of April basically)
- Wallets for Dash & litecoin, then – Ether, Ripple and more.
- Worldwide debit cards
The timeline of user registration is the following:
Accounts open for France, Italy, Germany. This will let everyone from these countries spend Bitcoin with a debit card.
Accounts open for the rest of the EU: Romania, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Sweden, Portugal, Greece, Croatia, Poland, Bulgaria, Republic of Cyprus, Norway and more.
Releasing a financial product is a responsible and complicated task where many things can go wrong.
Looks like Wirex is being cautious with its’ users, hence the conservative release timeline.
But the best part is – looks like they got everything already works and only in 2 days UK users will be able to spend their Bitcoin using virtual cards, and 1 month later – physical ATM cards.
Who else will release their cards soon?
Wirex is currently the leader of the debit card race – whoever follows them will have to get competitive.
In any case – the more cards the better for Bitcoin adoption, we wish a smooth launch process to all bitcoin debit card providers!
