Revolut Pays For WeWork Space In Bitcoin

Bitcoin finds its way into another big institution.

18th September 2021

Revolut, a renowned UK challenger bank that recently raised a whopping $800m over this past summer, has just inked a deal with WeWork.

Although this is the coolest news that we’ve heard in a month of Sundays, what really caught our attention is that the group paid for its latest US-based office in Dallas, Texas using Bitcoin. 

According to Revolut, they paid for the space using Bitcoin to make a statement; to underscore their growing belief in cryptocurrencies as a method of payment. Paying in crypto has also allowed them to bypass the need to use intermediaries relating to the transaction. As a result, the British firm has been spared from costly international remittance fees.

This isn’t the first time WeWork has been on the receiving end of crypto payments. The well-known PropTech company announced in April of this year that they will begin accepting crypto payments. To get things moving, Coinbase became their first customer to pay for a workspace in crypto.


Crypto continues to find its way into global institutions, helping drive its mainstream adoption.
