Wirex, an exchange platform and cryptocurrency wallet provider, announced via Twitter the launch of prepaid cards for the US.
“We will soon be launching Wirex prepaid cards in the USA! For the first time, US-based Wirex users will be able to instantly buy and convert #XRP#BTC#LTC#ETH into USD – letting you spend your digital tokens seamlessly in everyday life.”
Wirex has partnered with i2c Inc, a payment processing firm responsible for servicing card issuers and facilities for easier payments.
U.S. customers will be able to trade and maintain all their assets on a single platform. Customers can buy XRP, BTC, LTC, and ETH with USD using the Wirex app or a web browser. Customers will also be able to spend their cryptocurrencies using the prepaid card. The card is also going to provide a 'Cryptoback' service through which users will get back 0.5% in Bitcoin using the card. This is available with all in-store purchases according to Wirex.
