Huobi Announces PayPal USD (PYUSD) Stablecoin Listing
Crypto exchange Huobi in an official announcement on August 8 said it will list the PayPal USD (PYUSD) stablecoin, becoming the first exchange to announce support. The exchange will start with PYUSD/USDT trading pair, with permanent zero handling fees.
“Huobi has always been committed to maintaining friendly communication with high-quality projects and institutions in the industry to jointly promote the development of the industry.”
The exchange will start trading PYUSD stablecoin as it enters the market and reaches enough liquidity. There are currently a total of 26.9 million PYUSD issued.
In addition, BitMart announces the primary listing of PYUSD stablecoin. The exchange is also listing the stablecoin in PYUSD/USDT trading pair, with deposits already opened. Users can start trading from August 8 at 06:00 AM UTC and withdrawal to start on August 8 at 10:00 AM UTC.
Other top crypto exchanges have yet to announce their support for the PayPal USD stablecoin. The crypto community’s reaction is also mixed.
Crypto Community Remains Cautious Of PYUSD Stablecoin
PayPal USD (PYUSD) stablecoin issued by Paxos has centralization and security issues. Paxos can also freeze or seize the assets of anyone when required by government agencies or departments. In addition, PYUSD is written in Solidity v0.4.24, which has zero scale, terrible security, and known back doors.
Crypto experts recommend the community to buy Bitcoin and self-custody, avoiding giving their money to PayPal despite Paxos support.
