Transak makes PayPal USD available across Web3

Transak, one of the leaders in Web3 payments infrastructure, has listed PayPal’s stablecoin, PayPal USD (PYUSD). This enables Transak users the ability to buy PYUSD using their preferred local payment methods.

“One of the core challenges for wider crypto adoption has been the difficulty of converting traditional currencies into crypto assets,” said Sami Start, CEO of Transak. “By listing PYUSD, we’re providing a trusted on-ramp for traders, leveraging the familiarity and reputation of PayPal to ease the transition into the world of decentralized finance.”

The increased accessibility of PYUSD through Transak’s platform seeks to accelerate mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies and create exciting new use cases. As a fiat-backed stablecoin, PYUSD provides stability and a reliable gateway into.

“The integration of PYUSD on Transak is a step towards meeting evolving consumer needs by providing them with expanded choices when it comes to their finances. Stablecoins and blockchain technology are the future of finance – and this is a great opportunity to safely  introduce this technology to users ,” said Nick Robnett, Head of Asset Growth at Paxos.

PayPal USD is issued by Paxos Trust Company, a fully chartered limited purpose trust company. Paxos and its products – including expansion to new blockchains – are subject to regulatory oversight by the New York State Department of Financial Services. Reserves for PayPal USD are fully backed by U.S. dollar deposits, U.S. Treasuries and similar cash equivalents, and PayPal USD can be bought or sold through PayPal and Venmo at a rate of $1.00 per PayPal USD.

The announcement marks a step towards a more non-siloed internet of ownership where users have greater control of their digital assets.
