Payment system PayPal and its mobile payment service Venmo will provide users with an option to buy/sell cryptocurrencies within three months, Coin Desk reports.
One of the publication’s interlocutors pointed out that the built-in functionality will allow buying, selling, and storing cryptocurrencies. He expects PayPal to provide liquidity through cooperation with Bitcoin exchanges.
Coinbase and Bitstamp may be potential partners. Users in the US and EU can withdraw funds to their PayPal account. Coinbase and PayPal were also members of the Libra Association before the payment system was released. At that time, the company’s management emphasized that it would be better to direct resources to its developments to make finances more accessible.
Another interlocutor is waiting for the launch in the next three months, although it is not clear how many cryptocurrencies the services will support.
The user base of PayPal and Venmo exceeds 325 million people.
Let us recall that in January 2018, the head of PayPal Dan Schulman said that bitcoin was not an effective way to transfer value. At the same time, he flatteringly spoke about blockchain technology.
