Wirex, which is known for its suite of personal banking solutions such as a debit card for Bitcoin users, will soon integrate Dash – allowing customers to use the cryptocurrency to pay over 40 million VISA-accepting merchants worldwide.
The business partnership also enables Dash users to withdraw cash at any ATM, using the Wirex card, in 210 countries across the world.
CEO of Dash Core, Ryan Taylor, commented: “Wirex is a premier brand for digital currency services, and supports the world’s largest base of digital currency funded pre-paid cards. We’re excited to bring the benefits of Dash’s low cost instant transactions to these users.
Consumers simply don’t like waiting for transactions to top up debit card balances, and I know that once Wirex consumers try Dash they will recognize the time-saving user experience our network provides at a fraction of the fees to which they are accustomed. It really is a win for consumers, Wirex, and Dash.”
Wirex will activate a fully-featured Dash wallet so customers can store, exchange and send their Dash funds online.
Pavel Matveev, CEO of Wirex, said: “Wirex is thrilled to be the largest provider of Dash payments cards in the world. Our integration with Dash signals an important milestone in the history of cryptocurrency mass adoption.
Wirex customers will be the first to spend Dash up and down the high street, or online, as simply as spending any national currency. Dash’s low transaction costs and fast transfer times means customers now have significantly greater flexibility and opportunity to spend cryptocurrencies around the world.”
“Buying everyday groceries, a glass of beer or even a brand new car is now possible with the Wirex-Dash partnership,” Matveev added.
Earlier this year Wirex raised $3 million in a Series A funding round led by the Japanese conglomerate SBI (TYO:8473).
