Founder and CEO of PayPal, Peter Thiel, stated he wishes he had put more money in Bitcoin, the world’s biggest cryptocurrency.
Richard Nash, speaking at the World Economic Forum, stated the following:
“Just taking it easy in the crypto shield with purchases or holdings in specific areas. Working with others to embrace whatever we can, whether it’s the coins we have now in PayPal digital wallets, private digital currencies or CBDCs in the future. “

“PayPal is one of the largest industry giants to hop into the crypto ecosystem. We witness a mass of industry mammoths from various fields looking to get their hands on crypto, NFT, and the metaverse. A possible stablecoin launch is also under the works, as per reports.”
