Wise also revealed that the Wise Account was gaining popularity among its customers as 55% of businesses and 36% of personal users now use Wise for more than just sending payments internationally. 

The company also launched the Wise “Interest” Assets feature in the UK, SGP and several European countries. The firm now pays cashback to balance holders in Europe and the US.
