Wirex teams up with Terra Virtua for NFT giveaway

Non-fungible tokens (NFT) have been around since 2014 but are now becoming an increasingly popular way to buy and sell digital artwork

Wirex, a digital payment platform is partnering with Terra Virtua, the world's first fully immersive digital collectibles platform, to bring the benefits of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) to a mainstream audience. 

Wirex will give away 500 exclusive Terra Virtua vFlect NFTs to celebrate the Wirex Token’s (WXT) 2nd birthday, as well as up to $500,000 worth of cryptocurrency in promotions throughout June.

Georgy Sokolov, Co-Founder and VP of Partnerships at Wirex, said that: "Our partnership with Terra Virtua comes at an important time for crypto fans globally, as NFT popularity soars. As a company that strives to exceed regulatory requirements, Terra Virtua were an ideal partner given their focus on licensing and intellectual property rights. It's great that we're able to give everyday users the chance to win an exclusive digital art collectible produced for WXT's milestone and promote the value of NFTs beyond the art world."

Wirex was created in 2014 and provides a service for crypto and traditional currency transactions by incorporating the next generation of payments infrastructure integrated with cryptocurrency blockchains. With over 3.5 million customers across 130 countries, the company offers secure accounts that allow customers to easily store, buy and exchange multiple currencies instantly at the best live rates on one centralised mobile app. 

Move to Ethereum network 

Last month, Wirex migrated 20% of its total supply of WXT tokens onto the Ethereum network, in a move to give holders easier access to the DeFi sector.

Terra Virtua's CEO and Co-Founder, Gary Bracey, expressed that, "I'm really pleased to announce that we are partnering with Wirex to celebrate the second anniversary of their WTX token. Terra Virtua is a pioneer within the NFT space – just as Wirex are in theirs, and so this is a natural fit for both brands as we continue to push boundaries and take our products to the mass market. Our vFlect items continue to soar in popularity, and I have no doubt that the Wirex customers will be just as excited about them as we are."

WXT's birthday celebrations will continue throughout June with the launch of other exciting promotional offers for Wirex customers worth a total of $500,000 in cryptocurrency, including:

  • Sign-up and verification bonuses for new and existing customers
  • Up to 2% Cryptoback on all crypto purchases made with credit or debit cards
  • Wirex's biggest refer-a-friend payout ever
  • Special rewards for deposits, transactions, card activations and WXT purchases
