In the ever-evolving landscape of cryptocurrency, Finoa stands as a steadfast custodian of digital assets, continuously striving to provide comprehensive solutions to meet the evolving needs of institutional clients. We are excited to announce our integration with PayPal USD ($PYUSD). This pivotal inclusion reflects our commitment to simplifying and enhancing your cryptocurrency transactions, ushering in a new era of financial flexibility and convenience.

Understanding PayPal USD ($PYUSD)

What sets PYUSD apart is its unwavering backing by U.S. dollar deposits, short-term U.S. Treasuries, and similar cash equivalents, ensuring a 1:1 parity with the U.S. dollar. Issued by Paxos Trust Company, $PYUSD emerges as a digital currency poised to redefine the way institutions transact and hold digital assets.

Key features and functions of $PYUSD:

  • Seamless Integration with PayPal: $PYUSD is making its way to eligible U.S. PayPal balance accounts, facilitating its use for a spectrum of transactions, making everyday financial operations more accessible and convenient.
  • Zero Transaction Fees for Domestic Payments: $PYUSD enables cost-effective transfers within the United States, eliminating transaction fees for person-to-person payments on the PayPal platform.
  • Cross-Platform Compatibility: Institutional users can expand their cryptocurrency horizons by sending $PYUSD to Ethereum wallet addresses that support it, thereby integrating seamlessly into the world of decentralized finance (DeFi) and other blockchain applications.
  • Conversion to Other Cryptocurrencies: For added convenience, $PYUSD can be employed for the conversion to and from other cryptocurrencies supported by PayPal, offering a simple and efficient means of diversifying cryptocurrency portfolios.

The vision behind $PYUSD

PayPal USD is designed to bridge the gap between traditional fiat currencies and the innovative world of Web3, offering a seamless connection between the two realms for consumers, merchants, and developers. As the sole stablecoin supported within the PayPal ecosystem, $PYUSD leverages PayPal's extensive experience in handling payments at scale. 

As an ERC-20 token issued on the Ethereum blockchain, $PYUSD offers compatibility with a growing community of external developers, wallets, and Web3 applications. This versatility extends its adoption to exchanges and powers unique experiences within the PayPal ecosystem.

$PYUSD's role is not limited to mere transactions. It aims to streamline in-experience payments in virtual environments, expedite value transfers, facilitate remittances and international payments, and support developers and creators. Its compatibility with Web3-specific environments positions it as a pivotal player in the growing digital assets landscape.

Transparency and regulatory compliance

Transparency and regulatory compliance are of paramount importance. $PYUSD is issued by Paxos Trust Company, a fully licensed limited purpose trust company subject to regulatory oversight by the New York State Department of Financial Services.

Reserves for $PYUSD are fully backed by U.S. dollar deposits, U.S. Treasuries, and similar cash equivalents. Moreover, Paxos is committed to transparency by publishing a public monthly Reserve Report and a third-party attestation of the value of $PYUSD reserve assets, assuring institutional users of the stability and reliability of this digital asset.
