Sep 20, 2023 22:39 The crypto community was ecstatic at the launch of the PayPal USD (PYUSD) stablecoin in August. However, Tether’s co-founder doesn’t expect much innovation from the payment giant. Conversely, Tradecurve Markets has been hailed for bringing innovation to the crypto exchange space. Read on to find out more about these recent developments. Tether’s Co-Founder Speaks on PayPal’s Stablecoin Ambitions PayPal made its first official crypto involvement in 2020. Since then, the payment giant has been steadily embracing the technology. Its biggest involvement happened in August 2023, when PayPal announced the launch of its stablecoin. Dollar deposits, cash, and short-term U.S. treasuries back PYUSD. However, Tether’s co-founder says he doesn’t expect much innovation from the payment giant. William Quigley was also an early investor in PayPal. Despite his relationship with PayPal, Quigley isn’t very bullish about the PYUSD launch. According to him, PYUSD is only a potential way for PayPal to save trillions of dollars in multi currency transactions. Quigley adds that he knew PayPal had been looking into stablecoins for seven or eight years. He expects very little innovative addition from PayPal to the stablecoin space. The Tether co-founder left the company in 2015 and no longer holds PayPal stocks. Tradecurve Markets Brings New Innovation To Exchange Space Cryptocurrency is often regarded as a fast-evolving industry. However, one sector that has seen its growth stalled is crypto exchanges. Despite being a core of the industry, there has been little growth in the crypto exchange space over the last few years.
