Paypal has announced that Venmo users can now utilize PYUSD, the company’s own stablecoin. Starting with a small group of users, the rollout will eventually be available to all Venmo users, who will then be able to “purchase PYUSD and send it to friends and family on Paypal, Venmo, and compatible external wallets.”

With the exception of blockchain network fees, the company claims that transfers between Venmo and Paypal users are “fast and free.” Because PYUSD is an ERC20 token, it is subject to fees from the Ethereum block space and fee market.
