Driving towards an inclusive digital future.
Our mission is to leverage blockchain, crypto, and digital currencies to democratize financial services to ensure that everyone, regardless of background or economic standing, has access to affordable, convenient and secure products and services to take control of their financial lives.
PayPal has remained at the forefront of the digital payment revolution for more than 20 years. We have over 400 million active accounts in over 200 countries around the world. We partner closely with financial institutions, technology companies, governments, and non-profits to enable new products to solve customer pain points. We will leverage blockchain, crypto, and digital currencies to deliver global solutions that unlock opportunities for businesses, consumers, and partners.
Trust is a fundamental value needed for digital assets to thrive, and it is an area of great focus and investment for PayPal. We have spent twenty years building trust with our customers. With risk detection and fraud prevention platforms, PayPal is primed to lead the transition to a secure digital currency future. We also strive to be a trusted player by our regulators as a company that embraces our regulatory responsibilities and does what’s right for our customers. These responsibilities include taking serious measures to combat money laundering and related financial crimes.
