Wirex announced Litecoin integration, thereby permitting users to spend the cryptocurrency using the Wirex payment card.
Litecoin is faster than Bitcoin, has lower blockchain fees, and could become a global payment option available on dozens of big brand websites over the coming months.
The new Wirex LTC wallet enables consumers to buy Litecoin via bank transfer, debit card, or credit card. Users will also be able to deposit dozens of popular altcoins and exchange them to Litecoin instantly. This facility makes it easier to cash out ICO or crypto trading profits.
Everyone excited about getting the Wirex LTC wallet can open a free account and register for the payment card on the official website: wirexapp.com
This new crypto-friendly personal finance platform enables you to:
- Spend Litecoin using the Wirex card by converting into a supported currency instantly;
- Exchange Bitcoin for Litecoin or vice versa at any time;
- Withdraw Litecoin to any other LTC wallet; and,
- Use Litecoin as a payment option when major brands make it available.
Over 40 million merchants in more than 200 countries accept the Wirex prepaid debit card. Integrated 3D secure support protects online payments, while instant conversion allows you to spend cryptocurrency in supported countries. The free contactless payment cards will be available for EEA customers at the beginning of May, marking a tremendous step toward greater merchant acceptance of cryptocurrencies in the UK and across Europe.
“Wirex keeps growing as a platform, and it’s natural for us to add new services and currencies. Litecoin has huge potential and a big community, so there is a lot of demand for this service on the market”, – says Pavel Matveev, Wirex CEO.
Currently, Wirex is the only provider in Europe that allows spending cash converted from Bitcoin and Litecoin via its cards. Allowing exchange functionality between Bitcoin, GBP, EUR, and USD, customers in Europe can use the Wirex card to spend cryptocurrency in a convenient, fast, and cost-effective way.
The Wirex account represents a significant improvement on all previously available cryptocurrency account offerings. Bitcoin and Litecoin can be exchanged at any time to GBP, EUR, or USD and linked to a Visa card. Moreover, the currency account enables users to purchase Bitcoin and Litecoin in amounts up to £7,500 at a time.
Wirex is expanding its global reach and is forging ahead with other altcoins, as well as offering Litecoin-integrated accounts and cards in Japan, South East Asia, and beyond.
