PayPal Launches U.S. Dollar Stablecoin Based on Ethereum
PayPal is launching their own stablecoin called PYUSD, which is pegged to the U.S. dollar. Users can transfer PYUSD between PayPal and supported external digital wallets, use the tokens to pay for goods and services, or convert any of PayPal’s supported cryptocurrencies to and from PYUSD.
PYUSD will be issued by New York-based crypto financial services firm Paxos Trust and will be fully backed by U.S. dollar deposits, short-term Treasuries, and similar cash equivalents. For more details, visit here.
Starknet Testnet Upgraded to v0.12.1: The 2nd Stage of the Quantum Leap
Starknet has announced via a tweet that they have upgraded to version 0.12.1 on the Goerli testnet on August 7. Starknet v0.12.1 will address the issue of sequencer resources being allocated to processing transactions that do not contribute to the final block.
Through the inclusion of failed transactions in a block and charging a fee for them, Starknet will optimize its processing potential for valid transactions. V0.12.1 will also be available on mainnet soon.
