DOT’s addition into the Revolut’s crypto app makes it the 31st token to be added to the digital banking platform. Now 15 million Revolut customers globally will have access to DOT as well as other existing tokens on the app.
Notably, from all clear indications, the digital asset was added as a result of high demand from customers. The Polkadot ecosystem has recently witnessed remarkable growth due to its ability to address scalability and the issue of high gas fees on Ethereum blockchain.
Revolut Adds Dogecoin
The fintech firm recently added support for popular meme-based cryptocurrency Dogecoin. Revolut noted that the addition of DOGE was to broaden user access to digital assets. However, it also urged customers to perform extra research on cryptocurrencies before investing in them.
Edward Cooper, Head of Crypto at Revolut, in a statement reiterated the firm’s ambition to provide users with access to crypto.
He said, “One of the most popular user requests over the past couple of months has been to add Dogecoin and we have answered the call! We have just launched Dogecoin in-app. So now keen crypto customers and those new to the game can buy and sell this popular token.”
