Central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) could be distributed through PayPal’s digital wallets, Dan Schulman, the company’s CEO said, according to CoinDesk.

During its investor day, the company’s CEO laid out a vision by which central banks distributed CBDCs to consumers across income levels using PayPal. Schulman also revealed that PayPal is looking into smart contracts and tokenization of other non-crypto assets.

The payments company also released new numbers around the transaction activity of its customers who use its crypto products. PayPal customers that use its crypto services have a 12% increase in weekly transactions on the platform, CoinDesk added. This is in part because more than 40% of the US PayPal customers who use crypto return to complete more than two additional transactions, the company said.
