Wirex to Introduce Cryptocurrency Prepaid Cards to the US

Wirex, together with i2c, a payments processing company, announced the launch of the first cryptocurrency prepaid cards in the US. The cards were initially available in Europe

Wirex, a provider of digital currency wallets connected to VISA debit cards that serve over 130 countries, will bring in prepaid cards to American consumers. BTC, ETH, LTC, and XRP can be exchanged with USD to fill in the cards for spending.

The service was initially offered in Europe where consumers were able to use the cards for seamless everyday spending. CEO of Wirex North America, Vroon Modgill, tells that McDonalds and major grocery stores are among the top European establishments where the cards were used.

How does it Work?

US-based customers can buy, store, and convert BTC, ETH, XRP, and LTC through the Wirex app or on a browser to top-up their cards. According to the company, this allows users to manage their digital and fiat currencies on a single, open platform.

Partnership with i2c

i2c of Redwood City, California is a payments processing platform that reaches 216 countries. Multi-currency and multi-purse technology are among the features of i2c’s payments solution. The platform’s mission is to impart tools relevant to the card issuer’s own payments system goal. Wirex says the mission matches their own making i2c an ideal partner.

Bitcoin Bears Ramp Up Selling Pressure as Weekly Close Looms; Factors & Trends

Bitcoin and the aggregated crypto markets have been facing increased volatility as of late, and following a sharp move towards $11,000 yesterday, BTC has been unable to garner any significant buying pressure and has been drifting lower. Analysts are now noting that Bitcoin’s bears are ramping up the selling pressure, which could result in a bearish weekly candle close that could spell trouble for the cryptocurrency. Bitcoin Drifts Lower After Sharp Rejection at $11,000  At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down over 2% at its current price of $10,430, which marks a significant decline from its 24-hour highs of over $11,000 that were set yesterday evening. Currently, it does appear that BTC is finding some support around $10,400, but it is highly unlikely that the cryptocurrency incurs any significant buying pressure until it drops towards $10,000, which remains a key psychological price level for the crypto. How Bitcoin ends the day is of critical importance for how it trades in the week ahead, as BTC is about to close its weekly candle. Big Cheds, a popular cryptocurrency analyst on Twitter, spoke about this close in a recent tweet, noting that this selloff is seller’s attempt to form a weak weekly candle for BTC. “$BTC #Bitcoin 4 hour – Bears stepping up pressure as we head into the week’s close,” he said while referencing the below chart. $BTC #BItcoin 4 hour – Bears stepping up pressure as we head into the week's close pic.twitter.com/z16TdxCRyr — Big Cheds (@BigCheds) July 21, 2019 BTC Daily EMAs Form Bear Cross; Are Further Losses Imminent?  Notably, this recent sell off has done some technical damage to Bitcoin, as its daily EMAs are now forming an intra-day bear cross which could mean that further losses are imminent. Chonis Trading, another popular crypto analyst on Twitter, spoke about this formation in a recent tweet, noting that bulls have historically ramped up the buying pressure in an effort to stop this pattern from forming. “$BTC – daily EMA’s 12,26 once again in an intra-day Bear cross…the #bitcoin Bulls we able to step in a few days ago and save it…if it closes this way it would be the first time since February, and would be very notable,” he explained. $BTC – daily EMA’s 12,26 once again in an intra-day Bear cross…the #bitcoin Bulls we able to step in a few days ago and save it…if it closes this way it would be the first time since February, and would be very notable… pic.twitter.com/u3Em6jcTXa — Chonis Trading- (@BigChonis) July 21, 2019 Although it remains unclear as to whether or not bears will soon take full control of Bitcoin and send its price reeling lower, it is important to note that it is still trading well off of its weekly lows of $9,100.
