Among the new tokens are ApeCoin and Sandbox. The former is the cryptocurrency launched in March by the creators of the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT series, and the latter is among the largest metaverses based on the Ethereum blockchain, the report said. The Request payment protocol and the Ethereum Classic blockchain development platform were also added.
“We’ve given a big boost to our offering while empowering people to take more control of their finances and giving them safe access to new tools and services built in crypto,” said Emil Urmanshin, Crypto General Manager at Revolut.
The report noted that cryptocurrency has been crucial to Revolut’s efforts to become a financial super app.
Last month, Revolut marked its seventh year in business with three milestones: 20 million customers, 250 million monthly transactions and a workforce of more than 5,000 worldwide.
“We are still a young company, but our growth in recent years shows the growing demand for our products worldwide,” said co-founder and CEO Nikolay Storonsky.
He added that the company’s journey is still just beginning and that it plans to continue “pushing the boundaries of financial innovation” as it strives to develop a worldwide super app.
