Skrill wallet users can now instantly buy and sell cryptocurrencies

Skrill, a digital wallet provider and part of the Paysafe Group, is now offering customers the opportunity to instantly buy and sell cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin, bitcoin cash, Ether and Litecoin, using any one of the 40-plus fiat currencies available in the Skrill wallet, according to a press release.

All customers need to do is log into their account, select 'exchange' and in just a couple of clicks they can begin buying, holding and selling cryptocurrency. Skrill purchases and holds the cryptocurrency via a recognized cryptocurrency exchange, according to the release.

Skrill's new cryptocurrency capability is now live in over 30 countries. The company plans to roll it out to additional markets and extend the service to its mobile app and Paysafe's NETELLER digital wallet in the next few months.

"The world of cryptocurrency trading is exciting and dynamic, and our digital wallet service very much lends itself to this environment," Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO Skrill, NETELLER and Income Access, said in the release. "I'm confident that the ability to trade in cryptocurrencies quickly and easily through Skrill will appeal to consumers both now and in the future."
