Wirex is one of the service that you can easily exchange cryptocurrencies into FIAT. In early 2018 most of them was terminated, but Wirex is up running again. I’m also excited about new Bitwala and it’s crypto banking.
Wirex account cost £1.00/€1.20/$1.50 per month and ordering card should be still free of charge. It takes less than a week to receive it. So you only pay the month cost which is pretty reasonable.
