Circle, a US-based blockchain based payments app, has bolstered its presence in Europe by launching its social payment apps in Spain and Ireland.
The expansion will enable users to connect their Spanish or Irish bank account to the app to send and receive p2p payments, with native Euro support, within their countries and abroad – with zero fees.
The UK and US customers who hold GBP and USD currencies can now also send and receive Euros with customers in Spain or Ireland in the same way they are used to sharing messages, photos, or any other content, the company said in its press statement.
“Circle’s vision is that money should work the way that the internet works: instant, global, free and fun. We can send and receive emails, text messages and share personal content through messaging in this way, but only now has it become possible to share and exchange value and money in the same manner,” the statement added.
Circle expanded to Europe when it launched service in UK in April this year. The company said it will add more countries over the next several weeks and months.
