PayPal is removing its waiting list for crypto services, allowing all United States users to buy and sell Bitcoin.
PayPal Lifts Wait List for Crypto
The payment service made headlines last month when it announced its plans to support digital currencies.
While it was initially proposed that there would be a waiting list for customers interested in obtaining crypto, the company has since opened up the service to all eligible U.S. customers.

The Block also reports that purchase limits have been increased, allowing U.S. buyers to purchase up to $20,000 in cryptoassets per week (it was initially set to $10,000, before being increased to $15,000 shortly after).
While it’s currently unknown whether the service will be expanded globally, all signs point to the payment giant doubling down on cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ether.
