In addition, Reuters has also reported PayPal customers will be able to use cryptos to pay for goods at 26 million merchants in early 2021. Transactions with cryptocurrencies will be automatically converted to fiat, such as the dollar, so that sellers do not have to take any additional steps.

PayPal hopes this new feature will contribute to the adoption of cryptocurrencies around the world.

The first news suggesting PayPal was exploring the possibility of adding support for crypto buying and selling appeared a few months ago.
