PayPal announced the launch of its stablecoin on Aug. 7. The company believes that regulated stablecoins could transform payments in web3 and would be addressed by the release of PayPal USD.
PayPal customers can now transfer PYUSD between PayPal and compatible wallets, use the stablecoin to make purchases, or convert PayPal USD to any support cryptocurrencies.
PayPal’s announcement lifted the company’s shares by 2.66% on Aug. 7, despite the industry being plagued with regulatory uncertainty and several major exchange collapses over the last year.
A difficult time for Huobi
The news comes at a time when Huobi is optimizing its offerings. In June 2023, the exchange announced that it was discontinuing trading for ten specific pairs, primarily focusing on those tethered to the USDD stablecoin. Notably, this stablecoin is issued by the TRON DAO Reserve, a venture with significant backing from Justin Sun.
Starting June 29, Huobi’s decision entailed delisting other trading pairs, including Cardano (ADA), Solana (SOL), and MATIC, coupled with the USDD stablecoin. While this decision was made to create an efficient trading environment for its users, Huobi’s support of PayPal shows confidence in its usage and growth for users.
