According to the report, the firm wants to accelerate its presence on the cryptocurrency market over the next six months. Revolut's crypto manager, Emil Urmanshin, said that the London-based firm is seeing crypto as a "long-term play and remain bullish on the crypto industry." He added:
"Although there has been turmoil, interest in crypto assets has increased and we still have more customers trading crypto than during July 2021."
So far, cryptocurrencies generate 5-10% of Revolut's revenue globally. The news comes shortly after Revolut listed over 20 new tokens to its platform, including bitcoin (EXANTE: Bitcoin), ether (ETH) and apecoin (APE).
In May, reports said that Revolut might roll out its own token as part of the development of a customer loyalty program. However, no updates have been made on this direction at the time of writing.
