How does this differ from @RevolutApp? They've been doing the 'multiple currency accounts' thing for over a year or so, and are way ahead in terms of features and infrastructure - banking license in the pipe.

@revolutapp @dan_e_gray Revolut is too good!
@revolutapp @dan_e_gray I have used both, and Revolut is definitely cheaper with the Premium subscription (at least if you transfer a couple of thousand dollars per year). Also, I had have to see an UX that beats that of Revolut
@revolutapp @dan_e_gray the one key difference is Revolut has a €30k limit per year. Transferwise has no limits of any sort.

@revolutapp @dan_e_gray but yeah, since I went "bank-less" last year I only use Revolut and TransferWise.
@revolutapp @dan_e_gray Revolut kept having issues with crediting my transactions and made me call back 2 or 3 transactions i sent to myself. Transferwise bank transfers are also a lot faster, in the UK atleast, and found their customer service to be a lot better.
TransferWise is an awesome company. We used to use their service for paying international teammates, saving thousands of $$$. Seems like something @levelsio might like.

@rrhoover Keyword (used to) 🤔
@rrhoover Can't wait to give you a personal invite when we launch Revolut in the U.S. - @levelsio is already using our service
@valscholz I would like one too! (I help digital nomads)
@valscholz Would love to use the revolut in upcoming trips! Are you guys ready to launch in the U.S.? Will appreciate early access.
@shash2_0 Hey, we'll be launching in the U.S. in the next months. Go to www.revolut.com and join our waiting list. You'll be on of the first to try out our service in the U.S.
The card has not been fully launched yet (you need to have a borderless account, and need to be invited to the beta), but finally also TransferWise is getting ready with a card product. This complements their Borderless account, making TransferWise not only the best way to send money abroad, but also to spend them!

I don't have to worry about having money for whatever country I'm visiting, I know I'll get to pay for my expenses no matter where I am at the best rate I can get.

Pros:

I can use it everywhere, cheaply.

Cons:

Too easy to use, I spend too much money.

It's smooth as butter - I don't even remember I'm not transacting at my home currency anymore when I'm abroad. So transparent it hurts.

Pros:

If you don't have enough balance in specified currency it will use whatever balance you have available which will be cheaper to convert from

Cons:

No BRL balance available yet :(
