Technical Analysis of BTC/USD for March 31, 2021

Crypto Industry News:

PayPal announced the ability to allow US customers to pay with cryptocurrencies (including bitcoin and ethereum) across its global retail network. The BTC / USD exchange rate rose to $ 59,000. Will he attack the price record today?

According to a report released this morning by Reuters, the move could help bolster the daily use and adoption of cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ethereum among millions of online retailers worldwide. Additionally, PayPal's move could positively increase exposure and broader evidence of the validity of cryptocurrency use in a relatively niche sector.

According to yesterday's reports, customers with cryptocurrencies such as BTC, ETH, LTC, BCH in their PayPal digital wallets will now be able to convert their resources into FIAT currencies in shopping carts to make purchases.

This means customers would pay in cryptocurrencies, however PayPal will immediately convert digital assets into fiat currency and pay the sellers. For the merchant, this would mimic the current payment method, while for a PayPal user it would be a newer experience of spending cryptocurrency to purchase goods or services.

The service goes live one year after PayPal announced that it is launching its cryptocurrency-based business, which will be available to all 29 million sellers in the coming months.
