    Pros: 

    One of the best signup experiences ever, very cool app

    Cons: 

    It seems that I cant send my crypto currency to my other wallets outside Revolut - Gutted!

    Please please allow us to buy crypto and send to other wallets. This is not a nice to have feature, it's a must have.

    I wanted to sign up my whole company to a Business account but now this has made me stop.

    When will we be able to send cryptos out of revolut?

    Pros: 

    Super easy, and held by a trusted financial company

    Cons: 

    More of an 'investment' product than a 'currency'

    This implementation really seems to be aimed at people who see cryptocurrencies as an investment asset, rather than a true currency - and I think that's a fairly accurate assessment of the market at the moment. Who is really spending their bitcoin right now?

I'm a long time user of Revolut. It's a great service, killer UI and makes my life in the UK easier BUT there are tons of problems that they still need to fix, like the fact that often you can't use your card because their 3rd part card processor service is always down. I was hyped to check out the new Cryptocurrency feature, they've done some good PR on their twitter and FB but apparently, you can only use this feature if you're a Premium user (paying a monthly fee for few extra features - not really useful). This or you can invite 3 friends to unlock the feature. I'm not a premium user but I've invited 6 friends in the last 2 years although they don't seem to care about this. Real bummer...

Hey @error23_ , Can you send us a DM on our twitter account? We'll check your case and unlock crypto for you if that's the case. Additionally, our team is working hard on bringing processing in-house to prevent future downtimes. We expect this to happen in early 2018.
Ettore Tortora@error23_ · UI/UX Designer
@valscholz Thank you, I will. I hope to see the in-house processor soon. EDIT: Great customer service on Twitter, they activated the feature in few minutes! Thanks again!

@valscholz I’ve also invited plenty of users over the 2 users I’ve had been using the service! I’ll also send a tweet. Nice work, looking forward to using it. Ps please ask the team to look at the customer support process. Closing tickets overnight for non premium users who only have support until 10pm is not cool.

@error23_ I was kinda annoyed to see that the crypto feature was a premium only feature. The price for the few extra features is extremely high for what they offer if you ask me. There are plenty of other ways they can already earn money on this business model - why not set these features free and instead get a lot more users (mastercard normally pay per user-signup so that alone would give a better revenue)

We wanted to open up cryptocurrency exposure to everyone and not just the enthusiasts. We’ve simplified the complex signup process, removed the high fees and brought cryptocurrency exposure to everyone at the touch of a button. 📲

@valscholz Doesn’t Revolut work in India? I tried signing up with my mobile number, I did not get the verification code even after multiple tries. I used my US number, received a verification code instantly. I prefer opening an account with my Indian number.
Val ScholzMaker@valscholz · Head of Growth @revolutapp
Hey @adithya, We're monitoring closely the Indian market but don't have a release date yet. We'll be launching our service in the U.S. in early 2018.
Alexandra Larson@kingofpotatoes · Mathematics and weed
@valscholz No you didn't. Not being able to transfer cryptos to personal wallets / addresses shadows all the nice features you have just described.

Hey Val - congrats on launching! I’m just wondering, how are you dealing with people in north America ? My experience so far with the app and the customer service as à French living in Canada has been far from enjoyable and it feels like Canadian and US residents are not a priority. Is this going to be the same with the crypto service?
Val ScholzMaker@valscholz · Head of Growth @revolutapp
Hey @jpvalery, As we're launching in the U.S. and Canada in early 2018, we'll also be expanding our support team to be able to offer 24/7 support to all of our customers.
Jp Valery@jpvalery · Community @ RobotShop / Ex-Gameloft
@valscholz it wasn’t about availability but consistency and helpfulness 😄 I’m really looking forward to be able to use the app here, and buy/sell my cryptos (since Coinbase still doesn’t allow us Canadians to sell our BTC/ETH/LTC,...).

Nice and Simple UI Well done Revolut 👍

@r_ravishankar Thanks! We're glad you like it :)

Big fan of Revolut, premium user here since the first day I signed up. Use them more than any of my current accounts. Being from the UK, currently living in Canada, and making frequent trips to the UK/US the multi currency support has been flawless. Great work guys.
