Bunq launches ‘Local Currencies’

Dutch neobank Bunq is today launching ‘local currencies’, a new account feature that lets users receive, convert, hold and spend multiple currencies.

So starting today users can store US dollars, British pounds, Swiss francs, Bulgarian Lev and Polish złotys regardless of where in Europe they live—with more currencies coming later this year.
