Revolut today announced the official launch of their much-anticipated cryptocurrency feature, allowing all Revolut customers to buy, hold and exchange cryptocurrencies in-app in seconds, as the innovative fintech continues to disrupt traditional banking and bring cryptocurrencies to the mainstream.

All Revolut customers will now be able to join the waiting list and gain access to the exclusive cryptocurrency feature allowing users to buy Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ether in 25 currencies.

In a further move to offer frictionless exposure to cryptocurrency, customers will be able to buy cryptocurrency in all 25 base currencies, eliminating foreign exchange fees for those looking to buy their cryptocurrencies in currencies such as Swiss Franc or Polish Zloty.

The entire exchange will take just 30 seconds, making Revolut the fastest and easiest way to buy and sell cryptocurrency. Revolut customers can then securely hold their cryptocurrency within the Revolut app or transfer their Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum to other Revolut customers instantly, and for free.

The news follows the launch of the cryptocurrency feature in December, which opened up access to Premium customers and those who successfully referred three friends, allowing Revolut to cope with the incredible demand of the new, exclusive feature.

Nikolay Storonsky, CEO and Founder of Revolut said: “We have been amazed by the incredible demand of our cryptocurrency feature and are delighted to begin opening it up to all Revolut users. Now that we have upgraded and tested our systems, we are able to cope with demand and will avoid disrupting the service for everyone else by rolling this feature out gradually, starting with our Premium customers.”
