Our strong growth put us on track to expand into new markets, diversify the range of products and solutions we offer our clients, and work in close concert with regulators and trade organisations to ensure we continue to provide a secure environment for our clients to buy, sell and trade cryptocurrencies.
A crypto wallet and faster onboarding
Currency.com US will feature fiat-to-crypto payment gateways, a hosted crypto wallet, and a simplified onboarding process. Clients in the US will be among the first to benefit from faster and simpler onboarding and execution.
Currency.com’s fiat-to-crypto capability provides the flexibility to store, buy and invest in popular cryptocurrencies safely. The crypto wallet will let clients use credit cards to seamlessly buy or sell cryptocurrencies or link their Currency.com accounts with their bank ones.
Currency.com US will launch with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash, adding more cryptocurrencies over time.
No compromise on compliance
