Uphold, the leading digital money platform, serving more than 1.7 million customers globally, both from the retail sector as well as the business arena, has announced its integration with Dash, one of the top cryptocurrencies for eCommerce and payments. As a giant leap towards this move, Uphold has introduced the revolutionary “Uphold Card’’. This is a flexible debit card, to foster easy payments through cryptos, metals, and national currencies, at zero foreign transaction fees, at around 50 million ATM’s located at various parts of the world. Uphold and Dash made this announcement public in their respective Twitter handles, about Dash coming live on Uphold.
Uphold offers one of the most cost-effective solutions for retail investors to purchase and sell at least around 30 cryptocurrencies, 4 precious metals, and 29 national currencies apart from facilitating fund transfers worldwide, that too free of cost. Introducing the Uphold debit card will make fund transfers and financial transactions even easier and convenient for the users.
With this integration, the Uphold members can buy, store, or convert a value to Dash with just some few clicks, directly from their Uphold account. Moreover, with Dash’s addition to the Uphold ecosystem, it becomes easier for consumers to acquire the most popular cryptocurrencies. This is a mission towards implementing bank connectivity to UK users. Regarding this, J.P. Thieriot, the CEO of Uphold, said in a press meet, “At the core of Uphold is a mission to democratize access to financial services. Providing seamless onboarding and offboarding is vital for our customers in the U.K and worldwide. We’re delighted to offer bank connectivity to our customers in the United Kingdom, which has long been one of our most important markets. The U.K couldn’t be joining us at a more important time as we’re opening around 7,000 new accounts per day thanks to our expanded line up of services”.
He also added that from now onwards, deposits or withdrawals can be made from the Uphold account at zero transaction fees through 8 integrated cryptocurrency networks that previously included Bitcoin, XRP, and Ethereum, but now it will also include Dash. The increased adoption of Dash, along with its organizational structure, is the two key reasons that contributed to its integration with Uphold.
