Among the new tokens are ApeCoin and Sandbox. The former is the cryptocurrency launched in March by the creators of the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT series, and the latter is among the largest Ethereum blockchain-based metaverses, according to the report. The Request payment protocol and the Ethereum Classic blockchain development platform have also been added.

“We’ve given our offering a big boost while giving people more control over their finances and giving them secure access to new tools and services built in crypto,” said Emil Urmanshin, Chief Crypto Officer at Revolution.

The report notes that cryptocurrency has played a crucial role in Revolut’s efforts to become a financial super app.

Last month, Revolut marked its seventh year in business with three milestones: 20 million customers, 250 million monthly transactions and a workforce of over 5,000 people worldwide.

“We are still a young company, but our growth over the past few years shows the growing demand for our products all over the world,” said co-founder and CEO Nikolay Storonsky.

He added that the company’s journey has only just begun and that it plans to continue “pushing the boundaries of financial innovation” as it strives to develop a global super app.
