British online banking platform Wirex has announced the listing for the XLM token, as well as the release of 26 stablecoins on the Stellar blockchain, pegged to fiat currencies, including USD, EUR, GBP, HKD and SGD.

Prior to this, Wirex card supported eight digital assets and ten fiat currencies.

In addition, Wirex added the ability to instantly convert steablecoins to each other at over-the-counter rates.

As the company expects, new assets will be used for money transfers, issue and redemption of tokens, as well as for payments for services.

The choice of Wirex fell on the Stellar blockchain, as the company considers it safe, easily scalable and relatively inexpensive to use.

Last year Wirex became the third company in a row that received a license to provide services in the UK and Europe.
