Crypto exchange Crypto.com has become a preferred PayPal USD (PYUSD) exchange in collaboration with fintech giant PayPal and the stablecoin issuer Paxos.
PayPal’s stablecoin, PYUSD, launched to great fanfare in August. However, the hype has not converted into adoption, which is the reason the company is exploring different ideas to boost business.
Through an official announcement, Crypto.com revealed that it aims to utilize PayPal’s global network of consumers and merchants to bring “crypto to every wallet.”
This partnership makes Crypto.com a preferred crypto exchange for the stablecoin PYUSD. Users can also top up their Crypto.com Visa card through PayPal. Both companies want to explore more collaborative use cases.
