The new support is currently only available to select US users, but will eventually be rolled out to all eligible customers across the country in coming weeks, the firm said. 

With the changes, PayPal customers can now transfer supported coins – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin – into PayPal. They can also move their crypto holdings from the PayPal app to external cryptocurrency addresses, including crypto exchanges and hardware wallets.

Customers will also be able to send or receive crypto to/from family and friends, all at no fees or network charges.

The announcement continues PayPal’ push into the crypto sector. The new functionality especially comes just weeks after the firm’s Vice President Richard Nash said at WEF 2022 that PayPal would be looking to integrate all possible crypto and blockchain services.

The payments firm seems to be headed in that direction, more so after receiving a full Bitlicense from the New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS), to become the “first company to convert a conditional Bitlicense into a full Bitlicense.” 

According to da Ponte, this signals their commitment towards supporting responsible innovation as well as overall adoption and use of digital currencies. He noted:

Adding the ability to transfer, send, and receive cryptocurrencies is another step in our journey to building a more inclusive and effective financial system.”

The new feature is a response to increased demand from customers, the company noted in its statement.
