Philippines’ cryptocurrency exchange has partnered with Paxos Trust Company, a New York-based blockchain infrastructure platform, for more efficient cross-border remittances with PayPal USD (PYUSD).

With PYUSD now available on, this collaboration aims to facilitate easier fund transfers for Filipinos, especially those receiving money from overseas.

PYUSD, a stablecoin pegged to the US dollar on a 1:1 ratio, leverages blockchain technology to offer reliability and speed in transactions.

To utilise PYUSD, senders transfer the stablecoin to the recipient’s wallet. Recipients can then convert PYUSD to Philippine pesos (PHP) and withdraw the funds through various channels, including bank transfers and over-the-counter remittance centers.

In an effort to promote this new feature, is waiving trading fees for PYUSD transactions initially. This move is part of the company’s strategy to encourage the adoption of digital financial solutions in the Philippines.
