2gether, the first collaborative banking platform, is progressively expanding its crypto asset offerings and will now be including the Dash cryptocurrency among its list of nine supported assets.
2gether is an online portfolio management platform with a companion Visa-enabled debit card that syncs with the portfolio manager to help its users manage their cryptocurrencies and spend them at any Visa-accepting merchant. The Dash addition follows the addition of QTUM, a native token of the QTUM platform that was also added earlier this month.
Before the two latest assets were added only seven cryptocurrencies were supported since the launch of the platform in March this year. Users were able to spend their cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin [BTC], Ethereum [ETH], Ripple’s XRP, Litecoin [LTC], Bitcoin Cash [BCH], EOS and Stellar Lumens [XLM]. The Visa debit card was launched on April 10th exclusively to 19 Eurozone countries.
According to a press release published back in April, the prepaid Visa card would allow
“users to convert cryptocurrency to euros, and to spend those euros anywhere Visa is accepted, instantly and without fees,” adding that “[W]hether it be shopping at your favorite boutique or taking a friend out for dinner, users simply swipe their 2gether card and it seamlessly integrates cryptocurrency into their everyday lives. Pay for parking at the theater, tickets to the premiere, and even butter for the popcorn – all with crypto converted to euros, as easily as swiping a Visa card.”
With the newest addition of Dash, the platform will increase the exposure of Dash to the European population where Dash is not as prevalent as it has become in some countries in South America. Users of the Bitcoin-inspired crypto will be able to make use of the convenience of paying using the prepaid Visa card at any payment card accepting merchant in the 19 Eurozone countries.
In a statement, Dash Core Group CEO Ryan Taylor said that
“The addition of Dash to 2gether’s platform helps strengthen the bridge between crypto and fiat-based financial markets, and provides more ways for Eurozone citizens to reap the benefits of decentralized payments.”
Dash has seen tremendous adoption metrics over the past couple of years and this inclusion by 2gether only adds to its increasing availability and usability across the globe.
Ramon Ferraz, 2gethere CEO acknowledged the prevalence of Dash cryptocurrency saying that it’s one of the most widely used cryptocurrencies in the world.
“Adding dash to our list of nine cryptocurrencies opens us to new markets in order to expand our reach and visibility outside the Eurozone,” he stated in a press statement.
