Crypto wallet BRD partners with Wyre to enable in app purchase

BRD’s crypto apps are available for both iOS and Android.

Mobile cryptocurrency wallet, BRD, announced today it now allows US customers to purchase bitcoin, ethereum, and Dai using bank transfers.

This added capability for US customers is supported by over 1,700 US banks, enabled through a new partnership with Wyre, a payments provider for the blockchain industry.

“With over $6B USD worth in crypto assets under protection with the BRD brand, we’ve proven to be the most trusted service in the industry. We remain singularly focused on integrating the best payment partners with the lowest fees, such as Wyre.”
– Adam Traidman, CEO and Co-founder of BRD

By using BRD for buying BTC, ETH, or Dai, US consumers will now have the ability to directly link their bank account in less than five minutes. Besides allowing customers to securely exchange their fiat for cryptocurrency, bank transfers offer the lowest fees when purchasing crypto.

“BRD is one of the top teams in the space. They prioritize user security and privacy while still adding meaningful value. Both BRD and Wyre have a huge amount of experience, and I couldn’t be more excited for what we’ll deliver to the community over time.”
– Michael Dunworth, CEO, and Co-founder of Wyre

BRD’s development and growth follows a successful $15 series B fundraising in late 2018.
