This builds on a partnership between the two payment leaders, expanding the Wirex prepaid crypto-enabled card program from the APAC and European regions to the United States.
i2c Inc and Wirex deal offers convenience and flexibility
US Wirex cardholders will leverage multiple currencies while traveling with a single card.
With cross-border flexibility and control over payments, card holders can also earn up to 8% in crypto rewards on all in-store and online purchases minus costly travel exchange fees.
Pavel Matveev, the Co-Founder and CEO of Wirex said, “We are thrilled to bring our prepaid crypto card program to the US after a successful launch in the APAC and Europe.”
“We have been working with i2c for 4 years and we quickly evolved with i2c’s single codebase. With i2c, we’re able to redefine payments and travel for cardholders globally.”
Amir Wain, the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of i2c Inc. also offered his insights.
“Demand for the Wirex card has been growing globally, and we’re pleased to be able to support their multi-currency debit card to elevate payments experiences in the USA.”
“Americans can enjoy the flexibility and ease while travelling and spending with multiple fiat and crypto currencies on a single card and app, on a borderless payment platform.”
i2c and Wirex offer dual currency at no extra charge
Wirex’s hybrid payments alternative integrates blockchain technology on i2c’s platform to enable American customers to buy, store, exchange and spend both American dollars and up to 30 crypto currencies at over 80 million merchant locations globally.
Accounts can be funded by debit card top-up payments and features like no annual fees, zero exchange fees, near instant crypto transactions and live transaction notifications.
