Revolut bad experience and Russian Ties

I just read this
and its comments on HN:

I didn’t know Revolut has russian ties. That might be an issue sooner or later. especially if the US-RU relationship get worse…

Anyway I don’t know any better Credit Card company (or Debit Card, since R is a debit card…)

I’ve been using TransferWise’s debit Mastercard for a bit now for EUR payments… slightly more expensive than Revolut (but much cheaper than standard credit cards), but TW is actually a profitable company and is likely to be around in a similar form in 5 years… you also get your own IBAN with them (mine is DE, not sure how it works when holding GBP, USD, etc.).

As long as you don’t see those services as anything more than a fancy prepaid credit card, that is nothing of concern. Are there really people that use those as banks for their savings?

So founder’s dad is Russian, now what, mr racist? Stick to facts and leave nationality factor out of this, this isn’t the 19th century you know

Nonetheless I agree there is enough other dirt that makes me feel a bit uncomfortable with them and I’m looking for alternatives currently. Anyone successfuily tried N26 and willing to share his/her experience?
