Revolut Uses Bitcoin to Secure US-Based Office
The U.K.-based financial superapp Revolut uses bitcoin to pay for its Dallas office with flexible office provider WeWork. According to a press release, Revolut’s largest U.S. location, at 6900 Dallas Parkway will be the hub of Revolut’s American expansion efforts.
As Revolut continues to strive for a flexible working environment, the space will house more than 300 employees. Revolut is WeWork’s first enterprise client to accept bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency for payment.
Rhebecka d’Silva is Revolut’s global head for real estate. This makes WeWork an excellent fit as Revolut expands in the U.S.A and around the globe.
D’Silva stated that WeWork offers Revolut the ‘flexibility of paying using cryptocurrency’ and is something ‘we strongly believe in.’
Revolut’s over 2,000 employees have the choice of splitting their work time between the office and home. Revolut’s RevLabs real-estate concept was created to encourage that idea. It aims to repurpose all of its offices and make them more collaborative. Revolut currently has WeWork spaces in Berlin, New York, Dublin, Melbourne and Moscow.
Ron Oliveira is Revolut’s U.S. Chief Executive Officer. He stated that Revolut is committed to expanding in the U.S., and is planning to make its Dallas office a hub for technology.
He said that Revolut has been “consistently refining its product to offer customers across America greater visibility and control over financial matters” since March’s launch of its super-app.
RevLabs devotes approximately 70% of its offices to collaboration. This includes “spaces for creative thought, brainstorming and training, as well as knowledge exchange.” You will also find quiet areas and meeting spaces. WeWork, at 222 Exhibition St. in Melbourne, Australia, was the first RevLabs space.
Nick Giraudeau is the global head of financial sales at WeWork. He said that Revolut is a’realty partner’ who is focused on supporting their new standard of work’ and believes strongly in its employee-directed approach.
He stated that flexibility is crucial for companies growing, and that cryptocurrency transactions would allow them to offer convenience and choice while also supporting Revolut’s innovative business.
