Zumo makes giant leap forward for consumers everywhere with introduction of virtual card

19/04/2021

CUSTOMERS OF ZUMO CAN NOW BUY ONLINE USING THEIR CRYPTO CURRENCY WALLET – LIBERATING THE WORLD OF CRYPTO AND BRINGING IT ONE STEP CLOSER TO BEING AN EVERYDAY FORM OF CURRENCY

With the launch of their virtual card, Zumo has made it possible for their users to buy online using their crypto wallet. Until now, to realise the spending power of their Bitcoin, users would have needed to go through a variety of steps to sell bitcoin and transfer it back to a ‘normal’ bank account. Now, Zumo customers can exchange bitcoin within the app, and instantaneously use that money to purchase things online.

Speaking about this landmark moment for the brand, CEO Nick Jones said:

“Today marks a huge step forward for us, our customers and indeed the entire crypto currency space. The launch of our virtual card makes it easier than ever to be a crypto currency insider. Our mission has always been to make crypto currency safe and easy to use for everyone – this is another milestone for us in this journey”

Being able to actually SPEND your bitcoin has long since been the last bastion of why crypto has been unable to break into the mainstream. With the launch of Zumo’s non-custodial virtual card, users can finally realise their finances like never before with the ability to spend in crypto or traditional currencies. Head of Marketing, Amelie Arras said:

“Liberating the world of crypto to the everyday consumer is in our DNA – this moment is very much the realisation of that dream. With online spending skyrocketing during lockdown, we knew we had to make our product one which made the life of our users easier than ever. You can now do everything with the Zumo app that you do with your traditional bank account when browsing the web ”

“Safe, simple and secure is the core of the brand’s purpose – and that’s exactly what this new launch is all about making happen for our users!” – Nick Jones, CEO
