According to a story published by Coindesk a couple of hours ago, Revolut is looking to launch its own crypto token - according to sources close to the matter.
According to the same source, the company is awaiting the green line from regulators. The token will be more like a Binance kind of thing, closer to Wirex than to a stablecoin. Probably rewarding users for using the Revolut app.
I find it somehow funny to see how bridges are starting to be built from the other side too. I mean, until now, it was kind of a big thing to have a Visa or Mastercard card linked to some crypto wallets, but now it seems fiat processors are doing the same thing.
As far as I remember, Revolut is the closest one to crypto among money transfer companies like Wise or N26, offering some sort of crypto ability to buy with its app - but not to freely move it to another crypto, which means you buy just a promise of something.
It's worth adding that Revolut declined to comment.
