Bitcoin debit card provider Wirex Limited has launched a new mobile application. Simply called Wirex app, the company calls it the “next step in mobile banking”. Compatible with the E-Coin platform (soon to be launched as Wirex platform), the app will enable users in more than 130 countries to conduct bitcoin and fiat financial transactions from any iOS and Android-supported smartphones.
The app serves as an accessory to the online platform, however the company says it is also packed with features that make it a powerful stand-alone mobile banking platform for daily use. Through the app, users can register for a new account, hold bitcoin and fiat accounts in 3 currencies, view past transaction details, generate bitcoin address with QR code, transfer money to anyone with a bitcoin or email address, keep track and load debit cards for instant spending in shops which accept Visa/MasterCard, withdraw from ATMs, edit profiles, perform account verification, and more.
“The Wirex app makes it easy for our users to use E-Coin cards while they are on the move,” said Dmitry Lazarichev, co-founder of Wirex and E-Coin. “Our aim is to create products that feature blockchain technology in its core but yet extremely user-friendly. We already use our phones for so many things so why not integrate finances as well? For example, I can instantly send funds to anyone in my email list, no matter where they are in the world. The app also informs me of all transactions in real time, so if my debit card is ever compromised, I can quickly block the card straight from my phone. It’s a very convenient app for our users.”
