Pay, shop, and do even more on the PayPal appGet the App
I just recently purchased Litecoin with the intention of sending it to my personal Litecoin wallet. I can't seem to find any option to do this. There doesn't seem to be any options to do options to do this with any other coins like Bitcoin, i.e. sending Bitcoin to external Bitcoin Wallet.
If this is indeed the case, buying crypto at PayPal is little more than a very limited cash exchange that doesn't really even give you the opportunity to own crypto. I hope that isn't the case. I must be missing something here?
Is there a way to send my crypto holdings to an external wallet?
Paypal was my very first foray into crypto just a few months ago. I was just getting my feet wet and a total noob. Still a total noob, but wiser now. At the time I bought it, I thought it would just be a pleasant way for me to watch a tiny investment grow over time, and maybe cash in some profits every now and then for coffee money. Now I realize crypto is far more than just that, with the potential for enormous profits, and for the most part should be held and not spent on coffee. lol! And if I want to invest a larger amount of funds, I need access to my funds so I can store them (NOT on PayPal) in a secure wallet with my own key(s). Now I'm waiting for the functionality to be added to PayPal, but it could be years, right? So thank God it was only a tiny amount of money. And any further transactions, if I decide to invest more, will be done on a proper, reputable exchange where I can transfer the coin OUT, and into a secure wallet.
I'm in the same exact boat as this guy. I bought maybe 100 dollars worth of crypto on paypal before realizing that paypal treats crypto like a stock that can only be liquidated to USD instead of an actual currency. They have made strides like making paying with crypto viable on the platform, but still will not relent on sending to external wallets.
**bleep** paypal if I can't take my crypto out I won't be using it for that. **bleep** cost me 300.00 to buy what I got and now I've got to sell the **bleep**. Probably cost another **bleep**ing 300.00
