The online banking platform Wirex signes a partnership with Dash Core, which aims to integrate the Dash cryptocurrency into the WIrex payment cards. Thus, users will be able to pay with Dash in more than 40 million stores working with the Visa system and cash it in 210 countries around the world.

Our clients will be able to convert BTC to Dash and back with a minimum commission, directly buy Dash for a currency (EUR, USD, GBP) and withdraw it through classic ATMs. They will be able to pay in the usual way, with a plastic card or a mobile application, in stores and cafes.

Adding Dash to Wirex will support Dash in becoming an increasingly popular everyday payment instrument around the world.
