Wirex has launched the next step in mobile banking with the release of its new mobile application, Wirex app. Compatible with E-Coin platform (soon to be launched as Wirex platform), the app will enable users in more than 130 countries to conduct bitcoin and fiat financial transactions from any iOS and Android-supported smartphones.
The Wirex app serves as a handy accessory to the Wirex/E-Coin online platform, however it is also packed with features that make it a powerful stand-alone mobile banking platform for daily use. Through the app, E-Coin users can register for a new account, hold bitcoin and fiat accounts in 3 currencies, view past transaction details, generate bitcoin address with QR code, transfer money to anyone with bitcoin or email address, keep track and load debit cards for instant spending in shops which accept Visa/MasterCard or perform withdrawal from ATMs, edit profile, perform account verification, and more. Dmitry Lazarichev, co-founder of Wirex and E-Coin said:
The Wirex app makes it easy for our users to use E-Coin cards while they are on the move. Our aim is to create products that feature blockchain technology in its core but yet extremely user-friendly. We already use our phones for so many things so why not integrate finances as well? For example, I can instantly send funds to anyone in my email list, no matter where they are in the world. The app also informs me of all transactions in real time, so if my debit card is ever compromised, I can quickly block the card straight from my phone. It’s a very convenient app for our users.
The full review of the Wirex app and what it can do is available in a Wirex blog post.
Wirex is in the midst of a major rebranding activity. In February, Wirex Limited announced the launch of Wirex, the world’s first hybrid personal banking solution that combines the benefits of blockchain technology into everyday finances. The rebranding also saw the integration of E-Coin – the successful bitcoin debit card provider under the same company, into the new Wirex. All E-Coin users, cards, and accounts will move over to the new wirexapp.com platform without delay once the new Wirex platform launches estimated April 2016.
