Huobi Will Launch PayPal’s PYUSD Stablecoin On Sep 7

In an announcement, Huobi revealed that PYUSD deposits became available at 03:30 (UTC) today. The actual trading of PYUSD will commence once the deposit volume aligns with market demand for trading.

An official announcement will precede the launch of spot trading pairs, which will include PYUSD/USDT, BTC/PYUSD, and ETH/PYUSD. Withdrawals for PYUSD will be enabled starting at 11:00 (UTC) on September 12th.

PYUSD, issued by Paxos Trust Company, offers a secure and stable means for transferring and conducting transactions in U.S. dollars. It boasts full backing from U.S. dollar deposits, short-term U.S. Treasury bonds, and similar cash equivalents.

Currently, a total of 26.9 million PYUSD tokens are in circulation, further solidifying its reputation for stability and reliability.

The introduction of PYUSD marks a significant development in the Web3 ecosystem, as it represents the first instance of a major fintech giant, PayPal, launching a dollar-backed stablecoin. Huobi’s proactive move to list PYUSD could prove to be a mutually beneficial venture in the long run.

This news coincides with Huobi’s ongoing efforts to optimize its offerings. In June 2023, the exchange announced the discontinuation of trading for ten specific pairs, primarily those tied to the USDD stablecoin, issued by the TRON DAO Reserve, which enjoys substantial backing from Justin Sun.
