UK-based challenger bank Revolut has added 11 more cryptocurrencies bringing the total number to 21.
The added assets combine a mixture of tokens with a bullish outlook and those with established blockchain projects.
The newly added tokens include Cardano, Uniswap, Synthetix, Yearn Finance, Uma, Bancor, Filecoin, Numeraire, Loopring, Orchid, and The Graph.
Revolut already supports buying and selling of bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ethereum, litecoin, XRP, Stellar, EOS, OMG Network, tezos, and 0x.
The fintech platform began offering the crypto trading option in July 2017, starting with bitcoin before adding ethereum and litecoin. Additionally, Revolut assured users that it highly regards the security of crypto assets.
“The majority of our crypto funds are held in cold storage with some of the best custodians in the crypto game. External hard drives used for cold storage are disconnected from any networks when crypto transactions aren’t happening, so they’re very resistant to hacking,” Revolut said.
Last year, Revolut, which has a European banking license, announced a partnership with Paxos, a New York-based company. The partnership allows users in 49 states to buy, hold and sell bitcoin and ether.
Revolut marches towards super app status
Incorporating additional tokens into the Revolut product offering is part of elevating the platform to a super app. Furthermore, it adds to the recent trend of fintech platforms incorporating cryptocurrencies to take advantage of the bullish run.
This comes after the recent cryptocurrency boom led by bitcoin. In 2021, the digital asset space has cumulatively hit $2 trillion in market capitalization.
