“If you already have a Paypal account, you can start making purchases on Coinbase right away,” Coinbase explained, adding that “no need to connect bank accounts or card numbers directly to Coinbase.”

“We'll expand the opportunity to purchase bitcoin, ethereum, litecoin and other cryptocurrencies with Paypal funds to more countries in the coming months,” Coinbase said. Cash withdrawals to Paypal are now available in the United States, Canada, the European Union, and the United Kingdom.”
Paypal also allows you to purchase, sell, and keep a variety of cryptocurrencies. Furthermore, the company introduced a “checkout with crypto” programme that allows users to spend their coins at millions of merchants. Paypal's terms of service, unlike Coinbase's, note that "you will not be able to move crypto assets from your cryptocurrencies centre to another cryptocurrency wallet." The business has recently launched a crypto service on the Venmo app.
