Wirex has more than 3.5 million customers globally. The company is renowned for being innovative and driving fintech innovation. It has managed to seamlessly merge the next generation of payment solutions with digital payments. Users of Wirex can spend their crypto at over 61 million locations globally using the Wirex debit card. They were the first company to launch a crypto-enable debit card. Back in October of 2020, Visionary Financial reported on the companies record crowdfund raise. Wirex blew through a targeted €1M raise in 90 minutes, which was fueled by 7,000+ investors.
The fintech company has continued to improve its services during the market’s maturation. Wirex works to ensure that it adheres to all regulations, including securing the necessary licensing in all locations where its services are available. Wirex launched their native token, WXT, which they used to create the first crypto reward program globally called Cryptoback.
Via the reward program, users earn up to 2% back in WXT token for each transaction they make using the Wirex card. Thus far, Wirex has processed over $5 billion worth of transactions.
By partnering with Snowdrop, Wirex will have access to the firm’s Merchant Reconciliation System (MRS) technology. With MRS, Wirex can offer users of their services unique spending insights. Customers can better visualize their financial patterns and habits. With its innovative solutions, Wirex is uniquely positioned to promote the mass adoption of a cashless world.
