PayMaya Launches its Crypto Feature

Filipinos can now dip their toes in the world of virtual assets and cryptocurrencies or crypto with the help of the trusted e-wallet brand PayMaya. The digital financial services leader announced that it launched its crypto feature through its all-in-one finance app experience, enabling Filipinos to easily buy and earn digital assets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum for as low as P1. 

For many of us, crypto can be challenging. Usually, you need to download and register for a crypto account and subject yourself to a verification process. You also need to have a bank account or e-wallet app as a fund source. 

With this development, PayMaya makes it easier than ever for all of us to get into crypto by providing an all-in-one experience. There is no need to register for another account, apply for an upgrade, or use another app. Unlike other e-wallets and apps, you can learn to use crypto, cash in to your wallet, buy and sell coins, and spend your crypto earnings without leaving your PayMaya account.

All you need to have is an upgraded PayMaya account to start trading in a variety of the most popular coins directly from your PayMaya wallet in Philippine Pesos. You can also seamlessly buy and sell crypto anytime with no extra cash in and cash out fees.

PayMaya is currently rolling out the feature progressively to its base. Other popular coins and tokens available for trading are Cardano (ADA), Chainlink (LINK), Uniswap (UNI), Solana (SOL), Quant (QNT), Polkadot (DOT), Polygon (MATIC), and Tether (USDT), with more coming soon. 

PayMaya developed this feature under its Invest platform in connection with Coinbase Institutional. Coinbase is the largest publicly traded crypto company in the world and the trusted bridge to the crypto-economy. Coinbase Institutional offers a comprehensive suite of products and services including custody, prime brokerage, trading tools, and analytics, and an enterprise infrastructure built on top of a robust security platform. Coinbase Institutional provides the scale and stability needed to successfully participate
in the crypto economy.
