“We want our consumers to have the possibility of taking the cryptos they bought with us and transfer them to the destination of their choice,” said José Fernández da Ponte, vice president of Paypal, in a conference organized by the CoinDesk portal.

We want it to be as open as possible and give our consumers the option to bring their crypto to us so that they can use it in trade and be able to take the crypto they acquired with us and take it to the destination of their choice,” said da Ponte.
