San Jose-based financial technology giant PayPal has announced that all of its eligible customers can now buy, sell and hold cryptocurrencies in the U.K.
The list of supported digital assets includes Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Litecoin.
PayPal ventured into the cryptocurrency sector in October, gradually bringing the new functionality to all U.S. users.
As reported by U.Today, the company initially announced that it would expand its crypto service across the pond back in February.
In late August, PayPal started rolling out support for the aforementioned cryptocurrencies in the U.K.
Jose Fernandez da Ponte, the company's blockchain lead, said that PayPal strived to contribute to shaping the role of cryptocurrencies in global finance:
We are committed to continue working closely with regulators in the UK, and around the world, to offer our support and meaningfully contribute to shaping the role digital currencies will play in the future of global finance and commerce.
In July, the payments behemoth also opened several cryptocurrency-related job positions in Ireland.
Bitcoin Global Legalization: A survey of countries that accept and reject Bitcoin.
Since the inception of Bitcoin in 2009 by the unknown founder popularly known as Satoshi Nakamoto, the march for its legalization as well as other cryptocurrencies had continued till this point. While some countries had officially legalized Bitcoin and accepts it as a legal tender, others rather reject and ban it. The rest tend to maintain a neutral approach of tolerating it without either banning nor legalizing it. The major reason for this has been that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies lacks regulation and centralization and hence, beyond the control of the government. However, there is a general vision that given the popularity of Bitcoin itself and other cryptocurrencies, more countries will in no distant time give an official approval and legalization of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.
