Wirex is a cryptocurrency platform, based in Lithuania, that offers a prepaid card allowing users to spend their cryptocurrencies and fiat money anywhere.

The card is available in different versions and offers a range of benefits, including:

  2. Convert cryptocurrencies into fiat money: With the Wirex card, you can instantly convert your cryptocurrencies into fiat money at the time of use. This means you don't have to worry about price fluctuations or finding a store that accepts cryptocurrencies.

  3. Earn interest on your cryptocurrencies: Wirex allows you to earn interest on your cryptocurrencies held in your account. Interest rates vary depending on the cryptocurrency held, but can go up to 8% annually.

  4. Receive cashback on purchases: With Wirex's cashback program, you can earn cashback on all your card purchases. Cashback is paid out in cryptocurrency and can go up to 1.5%.

  5. Security and protection: Wirex is an authorized and regulated platform, and the Wirex card is protected by a range of security features, including an EMV chip and two-factor authentication.

  6. Use IBAN: Wirex provides a Lithuanian IBAN that you can use to receive and send bank transfers.

How does the Wirex card work?

To get a Wirex card, you need to create an account on the Wirex website. Once your account is verified, you can request the card. The card will then be sent to your home address.

To use the Wirex card, you need to top it up with cryptocurrencies or fiat money. You can top up your card via bank transfer, credit card, or cryptocurrency.

Once your card is topped up, you can use it to make payments wherever Visa or Mastercard are accepted. When you use your card to make a payment, your cryptocurrencies will be automatically converted into fiat money at the current exchange rate.
