This launch will be the first step towards the internationalization of the cryptocurrency trading platform, the press release said.
In the US, the company’s customers since spring can use cryptocurrencies from PayPal mobile wallets to pay for goods from merchants who work with the payment system.
“We intend to continue to work closely with regulators in the UK and elsewhere to enhance the future role of digital currencies in the international trade and financial sector,” said José Fernández de Ponte, vice president of cryptocurrencies and blockchain.
PayPal rose 1.5% yesterday in New York. Since the beginning of this year, the company’s market capitalization has increased by 18.3% to $ 320.7 billion.
