Currency Preference

You can choose from ten currencies as the base currency of your account: AUD, GBP, CAD, EUR, NZD, PLN, SGD, SEK, NOK and USD. Once it’s set, any deposit you make from anywhere in the world will be converted to the account’s default currency.

For example, you live in UAE, your account’s default currency is USD. When you deposit any dirhams from your desired payment method, you get a converted amount of USD. Keep in mind that the current conversion rate on currencies is applied while depositing. 

So checking the conversion rate from your local currency to the account’s currency before making a deposit may be a good idea.
