Revolut Adds Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin Support for US Customers

Following the launch of Revolut’s new crypto exchange in the U.S. the company has added bitcoin cash and litecoin support. Alongside bitcoin and ethereum support, the trading platform’s added coins provide Revolut users with the ability to buy, store, and sell four different digital assets.

Six weeks ago, Revolut launched a new exchange in the United States and initially, the platform supported bitcoin (BTC) and ethereum (ETH).

Today Revolut has added bitcoin cash (BCH) and litecoin (LTC) support to the exchange’s roster of listed crypto assets. Revolut says the trading platform frictionlessly allows users to swap digital assets at the tap of a button.

Revolut has 13 million customers worldwide and roughly a million users are trading on a regular basis. “Monthly crypto volumes are in the hundreds of millions of dollars,” the firm detailed during the BCH and LTC support announcement.

Moreover, the company says that around 5,000 daily signups are attributed to its crypto service.

“At Revolut we pride ourselves in being a customer-obsessed brand,” Edward Cooper, Head of Crypto at Revolut said. “Since we launched our crypto offering in the States, we had swarms of customers requesting that we add Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin to the product. So, we took notice, got straight to work, and were able to deliver in just four weeks.”

The company highlighted that it aims to construct a financial super application that “provides customers with a checking account, budgeting tools, instant P2P payments.”

Revolut also allows users to spend and transfer the funds using a real-time exchange rate based on 28 different fiat currencies.

“I have said this before, but crypto has traditionally been inaccessible to the average consumer,” Cooper concluded.

“Traditional exchanges can be clunky and confusing, which immediately puts a lot of people off. We have built a platform that gives you exposure to the world of digital currencies at the tap of a button, and that’s the way it should be,” the Revolut Head of Crypto executive added.
