PayPal to offer crypto payments in Singapore


TL;DR Breakdown

• Paypal partners with Paxos to bring crypto payments to Asia.
• Financial institutions will promote crypto investments and brokerage in Asia.

Today, the crypto market could expand to a country that recently regulated its trade. This new development is a reversal of Singapore’s policy after prohibiting Binance and other crypto exchanges operations in the past.

Paxos arrives in Singapore, supported by Paypal


With the crypto market gaining popularity by the day, large American companies such as Paxos and Paypal are exploring opportunities to participate in the ecosystem. While the virtual market is recovering from an unfortunate decline, the financial institution recently reached out to Singaporeans to offer its services. Paxos will serve as a bridge for investors in Singapore to operate with BUSD.

These advances in the crypto market also apply to Paxos, who offers its intermediation systems in the stock market to invest in cryptos such as Bitcoin, Ether, or others in the wallet. Paxos will apply for a license to perform each operation above.

The financial agency will offer a share-based dissolution system with the Blockchain network from an institutional viewpoint. Large agencies such as Credit Suisse, Bank of America, and Instinet are included in this contract. However, it is a service still under review.

Paypal partners go all out for the Singapore project

In collaboration with Paypal, Paxos has raised over $500M, including a deposit of over $300M for April 2020. The project’s promoters are Paypal, Mithril Capital, Declaration Partners, and Oak HC-FT. Paxos has nominated itself as a compliant agency in Singapore, which is why they have earned a license to operate there. Even Paxos has got authorization from the financial agency in New York to operate with discretion.

The company spokesperson clarifies that the Blockchain network brings many benefits that his team wants to promote. However, to fulfill this purpose, the company has to work within the legal framework of Singapore. The agent closed the interview by saying that Singapore is the main gateway to crypto operations in Asia, highlighting the importance of this deal.

If Paxos and PayPal come to Singapore, crypto traders are looking forward to using their services. It is expected that the Paxos‘ crypto operations will be activated in due time, allowing Singaporean citizens to enjoy the platform.
