Georgia Grange, Revolut’s Head of New Zealand, said: “Revolut is excited to edge closer to our goal of simplifying the money experience for Kiwis by expanding into new verticals like education and trading. By adding crypto and educational tools like Learn and Earn to our New Zealand platform, Revolut strives to make accessing and investing in cryptocurrencies – previously deemed time-consuming, difficult and expensive- easy. Through our offering, Revolut aims to drive seamless access to alternate asset classes, and provide educational content to help Kiwis navigate it responsibly”.

Through providing easy and accessible digital access to crypto trading, and through educating customers via ‘Learn & Earn’, Revolut aims to make the world of digital assets more accessible, seamless and secure for everyone.

As part of our goal to be the safest place to trade, use and learn about crypto, Revolut makes it clear to customers that crypto tokens are volatile assets and prices can go down. Revolut believes in widening access to crypto and also recognises that it may not be appropriate for everyone, so the company encourages its customers to consider their own circumstances and do their own research before buying or selling. Crypto is largely unregulated in New Zealand and significant risks apply.
