We wanted to open up cryptocurrency exposure to everyone and not just the enthusiasts. We’ve simplified the complex signup process, removed the high fees and brought cryptocurrency exposure to everyone at the touch of a button.
But before you get started, we wanted to explain the process again, highlight the risks involved and spell out how we’re going to initially roll out the feature.
How to get instant access to crypto
The demand for cryptocurrency exposure has been overwhelming. To ensure that our onboarding process runs smoothly in response to high levels of demand, we’ve set up a temporary queue.
How to buy crypto through Revolut
Buying cryptocurrencies has never been easier. Simply download the latest version of the app for iOS or Android and then enable cryptocurrencies from the ‘More’ tab. Please ensure that you read the terms and conditions and understand the risks associated with cryptocurrencies before proceeding.
Once this has been done, you’ll then be able to exchange any of our 25 base currencies into Bitcoin, Litecoin or Ether, all in a matter of seconds at the best possible rates.
