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 recognised cryptocurrency exchange.

Other features of the Skrill wallet include the ability for consumers to
upload funds with multiple payment options and currencies, and the speed
and efficiency of setting up a new user account means consumers can
start buying and selling cryptocurrencies faster than ever*.

Lorenzo Pellegrino, CEO Skrill, NETELLER and Income Access, commented:

"The world of cryptocurrency trading is exciting and dynamic, and our
digital wallet service very much lends itself to this environment. 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. We know many people want to experiment with cryptocurrency
trading but don't know where to start and we've made the entire process
very straightforward."

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.
