You can now trade cryptocurrency (crypto) on the PayMaya app. With the new feature, Filipinos can easily buy and sell digital assets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum for as low as Php 1.

To enter the cryptocurrency market, you usually need to download and register for a crypto account and have a bank account or e-wallet app as a fund source.

With this new development, all you need to enter the crypto market is a PayMaya account. There is no need to register for another account, apply for an upgrade, or use another app. Unlike other e-wallets and apps, users can learn to use crypto, cash in to their wallets, buy and sell coins, and spend their crypto earnings without leaving the PayMaya app.
