    U.K. Payments App Revolut May Launch Its Own Token

    Abstract:Sources suggest the company will launch its own exchange token.

      Revolut, a payments app company based in the U.K., is reportedly planning to introduce its own cryptocurrency token.

      Revolut Could Launch Exchange Token

      Two sources told Coindesk today that Revolut plans to create a token for use on its payments and trading app.

      The original report drew comparisons to wirex‘s WXT token, nexo’s NEXO token, and BINANCEs Binance Coin, all of which are usually classified as exchange tokens.

      This implies that users would earn crypto rewards by holding and using the Revolut token when they make payments. The report did not indicate how much users could earn back per transaction.

      Sources suggested that the Revolut token will not launch unless it gains approval from the U.K.s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and that the token would initially be made available in Europe.

      Revolut Valued at $33 Billion

      Revolut is a payments app that also allows users to invest in stocks, commodities, and other assets.

      It initially launched crypto trading in 2017 and introduced support for various tokens. Most recently, it added DOGEcoin to its list of supported tokens in June of this year.

      Initially, the app only allowed users to hold crypto and convert it to and from fiat currency. The company began to allow Bitcoin withdrawals for some users beginning in May.

      The company is valued at $33 billion, with recent successful fundraisers that brought in $800 million and $500 million.

    Bitcoin Global Legalization: A survey of countries that accept and reject Bitcoin.

    Since the inception of Bitcoin in 2009 by the unknown founder popularly known as Satoshi Nakamoto, the march for its legalization as well as other cryptocurrencies had continued till this point. While some countries had officially legalized Bitcoin and accepts it as a legal tender, others rather reject and ban it. The rest tend to maintain a neutral approach of tolerating it without either banning nor legalizing it. The major reason for this has been that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies lacks regulation and centralization and hence, beyond the control of the government. However, there is a general vision that given the popularity of Bitcoin itself and other cryptocurrencies, more countries will in no distant time give an official approval and legalization of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.
