The latest expansion of Skrill’s cryptocurrency service follows research published by Skrill and Paysafe earlier this year which indicated that, among 8,000 consumers, 28% believe that cryptocurrencies are a good investment for the future and 38% have already either invested in or bought a cryptocurrency.

Rupinder Singh, Paysafe’s SVP, Consumer, Digital Wallets, said: “After a surge in overall activity in the industry we’re seeing more interest in cryptocurrency than ever from our digital wallet customers, both current and new. The potential for this service is growing all the time, and we want to continue to expand responsibly what we offer at the same rate by adding new functionality, enabling new currencies and launching in new territories.  Our aim is to make it ever easier for consumers to get started in crypto using Skrill or NETELLER.”
