Multi Currency Credit Card ["Revolut"]

I just came across a website/service called "Revolut".

www.revolut.com

In essence they offer an account with an attached credit card.

The account has 3 currencies (as of now), EUR, GBP and USD. Apparently you can transfer any of the 3 currencies to your Revolut account, then FX these 3 currencies at interbank rate and hold your funds in above 3 currencies.

You can then spend those 3 currencies with the credit card, 1:1 without any fees, or transfer them to an account in the other currency.

Furthermore it's possible to use the credit card in quite a bunch of other currencies, but they're always converted when you spend. It's not possible to hold funds in those currencies (yet).

Not sure about anything as I just found out about them, but seems like a cool offer.

CHF missing as a holding currency is a bit of a blow. The only one I found so far.
