PayPal showcased plans to launch downloadable software for sending, receiving, accepting, buying, selling, storing, transmitting, trading, and exchanging digital assets. For several months, the financial company has been offering crypto transfer services to wallets and crypto exchanges.
PayPal joins a rapidly growing list of fintech firms already making their foray into the nascent NFT sector. Last year, the payments giant Mastercard filed 15 non-fungible token and metaverse trademark applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
The trademark application highlighted Mastercard’s plans for a virtual community for interacting with digital assets and processing payment cards in the Metaverse, an online marketplace for buyers and sellers of downloadable digital goods and virtual reality events.
