A new player enters the world of digital currency - Un nuevo jugador entra al mundo de las divisas digitales

in DClub4 years ago



For a few days, the important news has been known that a giant of payment transactions, I mean PayPal, will enter the world of cryptocurrencies from next January and this has caused a huge impact on this still small ecosystem of digital currencies.

Paypal has about 340 million users around the world who, according to the words of its managers, will be in a position to buy and sell cryptocurrencies from the first days of next year. The impact of this new alternative is still unknown, although there are already very optimistic estimates. Paypal's payment system and other financial services will be able to attract a large number of new cryptocurrency buyers, mainly in more developed countries where the participation of common people in the market is not massively adopted, according to specialists only 10% of the People in the United States own cryptocurrencies and something similar happens for example in Japan. It is expected that this new actor can give a great boost to the massive entry of people to the digital market.

However, several aspects of the operation and costs remain to be elucidated. To begin with, only a few currencies will be available in the Paypal portfolio: BTC of course, ETH and BCH. Regarding the operation and costs, not much is known either. Certainly, in the coming days, more details will appear.

The big question that arises is whether this will give a new boost to the value of our digital assets and of course to the various reward platforms, it is assumed and expected that although of course, no one has the crystal ball and we can only speculate.

What is certain is that with this new giant in action, a huge number of potential users will be able to enter, acquire, pay and / or sell digital currencies, something that until now is forbidden for the vast majority of people.

The expectations are great.


Desde hace algunos días se conoce la importante novedad que un gigante de las transacciones de pago, me refiero a PayPal, entrará a partir de enero próximo al mundo de las cryptomonedas y esto ha provocado un impacto enorme en este todavía pequeño ecosistema de las divisas digitales.

Paypal cuenta con unos 340 millones de usuarios en todo el mundo que según palabras de sus directivos, estarán en condiciones de comprar y vender crytodivisas a partir de los primeros días del año próximo. El impacto de esta nueva alternativa aún se desconoce si embargo ya hay cálculos muy optimistas. El sistema de pagos y otros servicios financieros de Paypal podrá traccionar gran cantidad de nuevos compradores de cryptomonedas principalmente en los países más desarrollados donde la participación de la gente común en el mercado no está adoptado en forma masiva, según especialistas solo el 10% de la gente en Estados Unidos posee cryptomonedas y algo similar ocurre por ejemplo en Japón. Se espera que este nuevo actor pueda dar un gran impulso al ingreso masivo de las personas al mercado digital.

Sin embargo aún quedan por dilucidar varios aspectos sobre la operatoria y los costos. Para empezar solo algunas pocas monedas estarán disponibles en el portafolio de Paypal: BTC por supuesto, ETH y BCH. Respecto a la operatoria y costos tampoco se sabe demasiado. Seguramente en los próximos días aparecerán mayores precisiones.

La gran pregunta que surge es si esto le dará un nuevo impulso al valor de nuestros activos digitales y por supuesto a las diversas plataformas de recompensas, se supone y se espera que si aunque por supuesto nadie tiene la bola de cristal y solo podemos especular.

Lo que si es cierto es que con este nuevo gigante en acción una enorme cantidad de usuarios potenciales podrán ingresar, adquirir, pagar y/o vender divisas digitales, algo que hasta el momento está vedado para la gran mayoría de las personas.

Las espectativas son grandes.

One thing you missed my friend. When you buy BTC on PayPal, you cannot save it or spend it outside of the PayPal system. So the coins you have in PayPal are not really BTC. They are more like a paper futures contract.

Please don't be scammed

~not your keys - not your crypto~

If that's a great little detail but I read that that would be changed for launch, I'm going to look up the article. Hopefully that is the case because otherwise, it is not of much use.
Thanks for the clarification!
