In just a few short sweet weeks from today, Wirex will introduce the most advanced crypto-friendly banking platform in operation worldwide.
Features will be released a step at a time over several weeks and months — with a stunning road-map for the future.
Regular Wirex app-users who provide feedback on the new services will be granted priority access to each new feature release, including crypto investment tools, new crypto wallets, and plastic card availability.
The first Wirex bank account available will be based in the UK — available to dozens of countries around the world — with a British account number and sort-code, 100% secure and fully registered with the UK Financial Conduct Authority.
This is an incredibly exciting moment for cryptocurrency enthusiasts who need crypto-friendly banking services including real debit cards (not prepaid cards).
Designated Account Number & Sort Code
Receive deposits to your Wirex bank account from third parties (clients, employers, friends, etc) or you can make deposits from other bank accounts of your own.
Deposits are available from UK local bank transfer or international transfer. Additional currency accounts with different funding options will be added soon.
Linked with a real debit card
Your new Wirex bank account comes with a free virtual payment card so you can make online payments with ease.
It’s not a prepaid card. It’s a real debit card. Which means lower fees and higher limits. If money is in your bank account, it’s immediately available on your Wirex card too. No top-up or loading necessary.
The plastic Wirex Contactless Cards will soon (hopefully) enter the manufacturing process so we’ll have updates on those soon for bank account holders.
Securely manage your money
With our hybrid crypto-friendly banking solution in place, you can sleep with ease knowing your money is secure. We’ll be gradually rolling out multi-currency features to enable you more flexibility to control your money.
And with a Wirex bank account you’ll have higher limits for buying bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as we add more crypto wallets to our platform.
Available in dozens of countries worldwide
Opening an account is easy. Log in to your Wirex account (mobile or desktop) and request a FREE virtual card. Your card will be created along with your new bank account.
This feature will be made available to individual Wirex account holders in batches based on the support team’s capacity to confirm the accounts.
As soon as the banking services are available in your country, you’ll receive notice by email and in the new app message centre announcing ‘Bank Access Granted’.
A list of currently available countries will be confirmed as soon as the bank account services are released.
If your existing Wirex account is already verified, we’ll set up the bank account and notify you once it’s ready.
If your Wirex account is not yet customer verified, simply submit your documents (proof of ID and address) and our new verification process will take between a couple of hours and a couple of days to get you approved.
Verification is a vital first step in being given access to the banking features, so we encourage you to go through the verification process now so that you’re positioned at the front of the queue when we begin our public advertising campaign for new accounts soon.
That’s all we’re saying for now
We know you must have a tonne of questions. Join our waiting list and you’ll be the first in line for the latest updates as our 2018 road-map of features is rolled-out.
Until now, it’s been tough (and rather complex) to buy, store, and spend any form of cryptocurrency. The crypto community has been hoping for a solution to the financial and legal barriers.
Our entire team of designers, developers, compliance, content, and legal department are hard at work putting the final touches onto a platform that unites our new world of cryptocurrency with the traditional systems of everyday banking.
