Revolut Business - A new way to make crypto payments
The UK's Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) recently approved the crypto-friendly financial app Revolut to conduct its digital asset business in the country. The licensing means that startups of any size within the European Economic Area (EEA) can now buy, hold and sell cryptocurrencies from their Revolut business accounts.
Crypto for cross-border payments
A [2021 study](https://markets.businessinsider.com/news/currencies/multinationals-cryptocurrencies-bitcoin-ether-study-cross-borders-transactions-pymnts-2021-11 30, November 2021) showed an increasing demand for diverse payment methods offering speed and convenience as B2B cross-border payments were expected to exceed $35 trillion. Per the study, at least 37% of the multinationals involved in the study used at least one type of cryptocurrency.
