Revolut Puts Focus On Crypto Despite Slow Returns

Despite the concentration on crypto and blockchain technology, the futuristic bank of Revolut had to face the music of the crypto turmoil that has been going on for the better part of 2022. 

According to a recent Bloomberg interview, Revolut CEO Nikolai Satoransky is upset with the revenue generated by crypto in 2022, which is below 5%. “Less than 5% is quite sad from my point of view. I think crypto has a lot of potential for financial systems”, explains Satoransky.

To compare, the year 2021 engrossed five to seven times more than that and brought in around 30-35% of Revolut’s total revenue. However, this doesn’t stop the British bank from investing more in the cryptocurrency sector, as it is believed to be the future of money.

Revolut still wants to invest in its crypto offering, despite this revenue stream almost vanishing during the recent price crash
