Russian fintech start-up in UK plans expansion

11 Sep '17
Revolut, a UK-based start-up of Russian origin operating in the fintech sector, earlier this year raised $66m from a consortium of venture funds to support a major expansion in Asia and North America, and also to develop new services enabling customers to use cryptocurrencies.

Revolut offers a MasterCard banking card with accounts in three different currencies which are managed through a mobile app. Using the Revolut solution also enables clients to send money to a variety of MasterCard and other accounts.

The start-up was established in 2015 by Nikolai Storonsky, an ex Russian resident, and Vlad Yatsenko, a former tech developer for Deutsche Bank AG. In February 2016, the young company raised £1.7m from the Seedcamp accelerator program and a pool of VC funds and angel investors.

Revolut is also hoping to enable its customers to widely use virtual currencies, such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, and Ethereum.
