PayPal's complaint comes after the payment giant announced plans to roll out its own cryptocurrency wallet in the US. According to Dan Schulman, the company's CEO, PayPal intends to turn its app into a financial super app like Alipay and WeChat Pay. As a result, it could include investment services, high-yield savings accounts, and check cashing services and other instruments.
