Revolut has raised a $66 million (£51 million) Series B round with Index Ventures leading the round, and existing investors Balderton Capital and Ribbit Capital also participating. The startup will also run another $5 million (£3 million) crowdfunding campaign in a few weeks. The company has raised $83 million (£64 million) in total.
Revolut started as a mobile app that lets you send and receive money in multiple currencies. Over time, the company has added a ton of financial services, turning it into a credible alternative to a regular bank account.
When you sign up, you can create virtual cards and receive a good old plastic MasterCard. You can top up your account using another card or a bank transfer. You can exchange your money in 16 different currencies in order to send it or spend it without any fee up to £5,000/€5,000 per month.
