“At Wirex, we want to give crypto users access to the best innovations within the sector, and implementing the Polygon blockchain gives customers more flexibility to choose lower-cost options within DeFi and crypto,” said Pavel Matveev, co-founder and CEO of Wirex.

Since their 2014 launch, Wirex have made strides in providing mainstream access to DeFi and crypto, launching their own native utility token (WXT), and becoming the first company to introduce a crypto reward scheme (Cryptoback™), which earns cardholders up to 2% back in WXT for every transaction they make. In 2021, they continued to innovate by launching their popular X-Accounts feature, releasing the non-custodial Wirex Wallet and partnering with decentralized liquidity market Nereus.
