With 25 fiat currencies available for exchange, the app alerts the user whenever a crypto hits a certain value.
The co-founder and CTO of Revolut, Vlad Yatsenko, stated:
“We’ve been asking the Revolut community which Cryptocurrencies they would like to see next, and the demand for both XRP and Bitcoin Cash has been absolutely overwhelming. After months of negotiations and development work, we’re incredibly excited to offer exposure to these two digital currencies to the UK market.”
Currently, it carries out about 100,000 crypto transactions daily with 1.5% exchange fee. Cryptocurrencies are increasingly on its way to becoming mainstream with the rise in customer demand.
