I understand that the base currency (For top-up purposes, spending, …) is related to where the account holder lives. That’s fine.
Just wanted to know whether it’s possible to hold a zero balance in the base currency (GBP) and have all my funds in an alternate currency (USD.), and then have all spending via that.
Essentially, purchasing goods and services that are priced in GBP, but with the USD funds in Revolut auto-converting per transaction.
•GBP purchase: Default to GBP, but due to no GBP funds, using USD funds and converting it to GBP in Revolut.
•EUR purchase: Default is GBP→EUR, but due to no GBP funds, using USD funds and converting it to EUR in Revolut.
The pound sterling isn’t the most… stable of currencies. I’d like to minimise exposure to the currency if possible.
