Dell is set to start providing customers with free banking services on its US bank accounts this week, as the company’s cloud-based platform moves to support the global rollout of the US dollar-denominated digital currency.
Dell, one of the world’s biggest computer and software companies, announced last week it was making a move into the US as it gears up to launch the US Dollar-denomination bank accounts and online services later this year.
In addition to offering the banking services, the Dell US Dollar Bank Account is being offered free of charge on Dell’s US website, where customers can set up their account in less than 10 minutes and can set it up with a mobile phone number, or via a web interface, on Dell servers.
It’s the first time Dell has offered this service outside the US and it’s the second time Dell will offer this bank account to customers, after its own service was introduced in April 2016.
The US dollar bank account will be available in all major cities and metro areas, including Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Miami, and is only available for residents of the states of Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
It will also be available on Dell bank accounts in the states and in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, the United States Virgin Islands, Guam and the Northern Marianas Islands.
In a blog post on Monday, Dell said it is now providing customers in the US with free access to the US bank account, as well as to Dell financial services and other services, in a move that is aimed at improving the US financial services landscape.
“The Dell US Dollars Bank Account allows customers to set up and access a new online banking account to take advantage of Dell’s free banking service, while also allowing them to transfer money to or from US dollars, including to their bank account and to check their balances,” the company said.
“Dell US Dollars can be used to buy or sell securities and to transfer funds to or to a US bank.
Dell US dollars can also be used for US-based investments in US-backed securities.”
Dell also said it will be offering free internet access to customers of its US banking services.
“We’re excited to partner with Dell to help customers get access to their Dell bank account through the US dollars bank account service,” it said.
“Our customers will also benefit from Dell’s partnership with Coinbase, a global payments platform, which enables customers to make payments from their bank accounts.”
In addition, the US will soon offer its first bank account that is backed by the world famous dollar bill.
This will be the first bank accounts to be backed by US currency, which is the official currency of the United Nations, and the US government has been in the process of creating a system that will allow banks and other financial institutions to operate in the currency.
It has also been reported that the bank account could be backed with the Australian dollar, but Dell has yet to confirm or deny this.
Deeplinks new US Dollar bank account is a big step for Dell, as it aims to get US customers to adopt a bank account.
Dale’s US Dollar financial services have been available in some form on Dell platforms for some time, including the Dell Flex and Dell Evernote.
It’s also been offering its online banking services to customers in some capacity.
Earlier this month, Dell announced that it had acquired a company called Blockchain for $20 billion in cash.
Blockchain, which offers a platform for secure, public blockchain transactions, is the world leader in the development of blockchain technology.
Dallas acquisition of Blockchain means Dell will be able to offer its financial services to a wider global audience.
Dellen’s US bank customers will be eligible for the free banking account and the free financial services in the bank.
Dedicated customers will receive a call and a message on their mobile device that their account has been transferred to the Dell USA account.
Once the account is set up, Dell will allow them to withdraw money from the account in the following ways: to pay a bill or transfer a check; make a credit or debit card purchase, and receive a prepaid debit card.
Dells customers will have access to Dell’s payment terminals at the US borders, where they will be given access to cashier-free transactions.
The Dell USA bank account also allows Dell customers to check balances and withdraw money without a mobile banking device.
Dill will offer more details on its banking services and financial services offerings later this month.
