PayPal recently announced their move into the stablecoin sector with the launch of its $PYUSD token. The token is issued by Paxos Trust Co., a blockchain financial institution, and it is backed by a diversified reserve that includes U.S. dollar deposits, short-term Treasuries, and other cash equivalents. In an effort to enhance accessibility, PYUSD will gradually be made available to customers in the US, according to PayPal.
PYUSD offers a seamless way to convert between dollars and various cryptocurrencies within PayPal’s network. It can also be utilized to settle purchase fees. Furthermore, it has the capability to be transferred to compatible third-party wallets beyond the confines of the PayPal network.
In mid-August, the financial giant made a notable introduction: the Cryptocurrencies Hub. This platform serves as a gateway for users interested in diving into the cryptocurrency landscape. It allows select PayPal users to directly interact with cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum within their PayPal accounts. With the Hub, users can conveniently buy and sell cryptocurrencies, making it an ideal platform for trading.
An intriguing feature of the Cryptocurrencies Hub is its ability to facilitate conversions between PYUSD and various other crypto assets. This feature is particularly appealing to users who are keen on diversifying their holdings and exploring different cryptocurrencies.
