ConsenSys, a market-leading Web3 company announced that U.S. MetaMask users will be able to purchase crypto (ETH) from within the app using PayPal. MetaMask will be the first Web3 wallet to leverage PayPal to drive more successful on-ramp transactions.

Initially available to select PayPal users in the U.S., this integration enables the seamless purchase and transfer of ETH from PayPal to MetaMask.

MetaMask is the world’s leading self-custodial wallet, the U.S. being among the top markets in terms of users.
