Wirex Launching Bitcoin Debit Cards in Europe

Crypto Cards Back in Europe

Cryptocurrency bank Wirex is launching new debit crypto cards for its customers in the European Union. The new generation supports multiple currency accounts and comes with contactless payment functionality, according to a company press release, quoted by crypto media. The first new plastic Visa cards were already issued Thursday, the announcement states.

The redesigned Wirex accounts and the new cards are available in the UK since March 8, the reports say. Users in France, Germany and Italy will be able to order the cards on March 20. The launch date for other EU countries is said to be March 27.

Services to Be Offered in Japan, Southeast Asia

The new Wirex cards allow for free and instant bitcoin transfers between account holders, with multisignature bitcoin addresses for improved security. The company says encryption is better now, and merchants will enjoy more freedom of action with reduced risk of fraud. UK residents will be able to use individual e-money accounts with unique numbers for third party payments.

Both plastic and virtual cards can be ordered. They will support 3D secure “Verified by Visa” transactions. “As soon as virtual cards are available, we’ll be able to switch on the buy bitcoin exchange feature”, according to a previous update on the company’s website.

Wirex also says similar proposals are on the way for users in Japan and markets in Southeast Asia. The UK-based crypto bank will introduce its new cards in several stages to ensure stable and secure support. Wirex is among the most popular providers of crypto wallets linked to physical and virtual debit cards.
