Following the addition to the Wirex platform, Nano is now positioned at the cutting edge of the push towards cryptocurrency adoption. Its integration with the UK-based digital money platform allows the coin to be seamlessly spent across 40m+ outlets around the world through the Wirex Visa card, creating the fastest decentralized bridge between cryptocurrency and real-world spending.
“The strategic integration with Wirex represents a milestone moment in bringing Nano into everyday use. Providing people with a simple method of buying, selling, exchanging and spending Nano is a strong step forward in our mission to establish Nano as the leading peer-to-peer digital currency,” said Nano Foundation’s Chief Operating Officer, George Coxon.
People believe in Nano because it improves the efficiency of digital currency through its unique design and focus on simple value transfer. By enabling simultaneous transactions, with no limit to how many can be processed at once, Nano can achieve huge scalability with very little energy expenditure.
Nano eliminates costly mining by using a unique Delegated Proof of Stake consensus mechanism. This empowering model gives the user the freedom to delegate their voting stake in the network to any representative whenever they like, who in turn use the stake to vote on consensus. The full ownership and control of stake is what makes Nano a genuinely decentralized cryptocurrency
Pavel Matveev, CEO at Wirex said, “We are delighted to add Nano to our platform and empower its community to spend their money their way. It aligns with our mission to give our customers access to and control of their money, whenever and wherever they want, without any restriction or compromise.”
Nano joins Bitcoin, Litecoin, XRP, Ether, Wollo, Waves and Dai on Wirex’s list of supported digital currencies.
