After rolling out its buy, hold and service for Bitcoin (BTC) across the United States in 2020, PayPal continues to expand its digital currency-related offering Nash noted
“Just walking slowly in the crypto shield with buys or holds in certain jurisdictions. [...] Looking to work with others to embrace everything we can, whether it’d be the coins that we have today in PayPal digital wallets, private digital currencies, or CBDCs in the future.”
Nash also hinted that he is a cryptocurrency owner, which perfectly aligns with his position at PayPal. When asked whether he holds any crypto himself. the VP answered "I have a lot of things that I'm working on at PayPal and I like to experience services myself so I think that's natural"
