Coinbase will now let you buy crypto using PayPal

Coinbase users in the US have a new way to spend their money on cryptocurrencies. The popular crypto exchange has announced a new integration with PayPal which will allow its users to purchase Bitcoin, ether and other coins through the payments platform, rather than through credit card, or wire purchases.

The crypto exchange claims the process is quick and seamless, and that users can “instantly fund crypto purchases” in just a few taps. Explaining the reasoning behind the addition, Coinbase claims ACH (direct deposits) and wire transfers can take time and effort, while PayPal offers “a familiar and trusted experience”.
