Wirex and Novatti Launch Australia's Next-gen Multicurrency Card

Wirex, a major crypto payments platform, announced on March 14, 2023, that it has teamed up with Novatti, a card issuer, to issue cards directly to Australians. This partnership could enable more than 20 million individuals to use their groundbreaking multicurrency card daily.

Wirex's pioneering crypto-enabled debit card allows around 5 million users to seamlessly buy, hold, exchange, and sell over 12 traditional and 130 cryptocurrencies at 80 million locations. Recently, Wirex added the TAUD (True AUD) stablecoin to its app as part of its most significant token release.

Wirex's partnership with Novatti will allow direct card issuance to Australian users. The collaboration brings advantages such as higher spending limits, up to 8% instant rewards, no FX or maintenance fees, international ATM withdrawals, fiat-to-fiat exchanges, affordable top-ups, and exclusive merchant offers. Strict KYC checks and AML requirements will be in place for all transactions and processes.

After experiencing significant success in the UK and EEA, Wirex expanded to APAC in 2019 and has since become their most rapidly growing region. With one of the world's highest levels of crypto adoption, Australia has become an important market for Wirex. The partnership with Novatti will be a bridge between the traditional economy and the digital economy. This will allow Wirex to take advantage of this growing market.

Svyatoslav Garal, Managing Director of APAC at Wirex, remarked, "As we grow our operations in Australia, we've strategically chosen to partner with a trusted Australian-headquartered company, Novatti, to issue cards. Being able to expand our product offerings will enable more users to continue taking advantage of the benefits of forward-thinking payments."
