When PayPal launched its crypto trading feature last year, the payments giant also announced that the same feature will be arriving on its Venmo app. That day has finally arrived as Venmo users can now start trading in Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH).

Venmo announced on Tuesday, April 20, that its more than 70 million customers can now buy, hold and sell cryptocurrency directly through the app. The feature, which began rolling out on the same day as the announcement, allows users to start trading for as little as $1.

The crypto trading feature only supports four major cryptocurrencies at the moment. These are Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). There the company did not yet announce if it plans to support other types of cryptos in the future.

“Crypto on Venmo is a new way for the Venmo community to start exploring the world of crypto, within the Venmo environment they trust and rely on as a key component of their everyday financial lives,” Venmo SVP and GM Darrell Esch said. “Our goal is to provide our customers with an easy-to-use platform that simplifies the process of buying and selling cryptocurrencies and demystifies some of the common questions and misconceptions that consumers may have.”

Venmo is making it easier for first-time crypto traders by giving them access to in-app guides. There are also available videos that answer commonly asked questions about crypto and its trading.

The crypto trading feature was made possible through parent firm Paypal’s partnership with Paxos Trust. The New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) also granted PayPal a first-of-its-kind conditional Bitlicense that allowed both PayPal and Venmo to offer the crypto feature to their users.

Prior to launching the feature, Venmo did a study last year to gauge the crypto demand from its users. The 2020 Venmo Customer Behavior Study found out that more than 30 percent of the app’s users have already invested in crypto, with 20 percent starting their crypto activity during the pandemic.

How I recouped stolen crypto currency coins and tokens from scam hackers on telegram: People all over the world are hearing about the fast profits early investors are making on Bitcoin and other coins and want to join the party and make a fast profit. But be sure, where big money is, there are also companies that are abusing and taking advantage of this situation. Such was my situation, I had a fake telegram group admin contact me and gave me a phishing link in which my 12 recovery phrase was compromised. These evil persons gained access to my cryptowallet and stole all my coins and tokens worth over $ 230,000. I was in great despair due to this situation, I was confused till a group member on the telegram referred me to REMOTESPYTECH @ GMAIL . COM . This recovery agent is really God sent. After relating all of my predicaments, details of incidence and necessary requirements for my recovery program, it took them less than a week to track and recover all of my tokens and coins back, they helped me hack the perpetrators wallet and all of my coins were returned to me. I am so amazed, joyous and appreciative. I don't know what I would do without this specialist. They specialize in chargeback disputes and their team knows how to identify these types of scams.
