The PayPal platform announced support for operations with cryptocurrencies in the United States – they became available to all American users after a limited test period. PayPal intends to enter international markets with a new function “sometime in 2021”.
Also next year, PayPal plans to provide the ability to make purchases using cryptocurrencies.
Against the background of this information, the rate of cryptocurrencies and, in particular, bitcoin, went up sharply – the maximum, by data Coindesk, amounted to $ 16.4 thousand per unit, now the rate has dropped slightly to the level of $ 16.2 thousand. This is a record figure for a very long period, if the trend continues, the 2017 record may be broken.
