Ripple (XRP) Can Now Be Spent With the Wirex Debit Card

24 Jul

After earlier this year Wirex has added support for Litecoin and has resumed their crypto-powered debit bank cards things are really moving for the company with the latest announcement being the addition of support for Ripple (XRP). This means that you can store Ripple’s XRP coins in the Wirex wallet and spend them via your debit card just like you can with Bitcoin and Litecoin already. It seems however that currently there are some limitations and full functionality is available only to users within the European Economic Area (EEA)…

Here is what you can do with the new XRP wallet:

– Easily convert XRP to fiat and spend with your Wirex card*
– Buy, sell, exchange and deposit XRP in-app
– Link the wallet to your debit or credit card
– Exchange 50 supported altcoins with XRP
– Exchange between USD, GBP, EUR, BTC and LTC*
– Enjoy free crypto transactions between Wirex users
* Only available to EEA users

Wirex reminds that full access to the innovative features on their app is only available to verified EEA users – so, if you want to enjoy the benefits, you need to get verified now. It only takes two minutes according to the company, but be prepared for more; all you need is proof of ID and a selfie.

Whilst their app does indeed now offer a Ripple wallet; just like BTC and LTC, you cannot actually spend any cryptos via the card. You have to first sell the cryptos for fiat which isn’t very user friendly at the moment and don’t get me started on their rediculous buy/sell spread! Once you have the fiat in your account you can then use the card to make a purchase.

The Tenx card was miles better (when it was working!) where you load it with BTC and when you use the card it exchanged the correct amount of BTC at the going rate at that exact time to send fiat onto the merchant, no hassle, no fuss and no extra steps.
