    American Pundi X Merchants Can Now Sell Crypto Via PayPal
    As the crypto community’s anticipation for PayPal’s exploration into crypto grows, Pundi X has integrated the payments processor for its point-of-sale devices. Singapore-based blockchain firm Pundi X has integrated PayPal support for its point-of-sale device ‘Xpos.’  PayPal is the first mobile payment gateway to be integrated onto Xpos, and users from more than 30 countries can now accept funds via the payments processor. The integration will take place over two stages, with US-based merchants who use Xpos able to apply for PayPay-based keyed transactions from July 1. A PayPal app is expected to be integrated onto all Xpos devices within two weeks — completing the roll-out. 70% of Xpos users request Paypal support Pundi X decided to launch the integration after conducting a Twitter poll asking followers which mobile payment app they would like Xpos to support first. PayPal received almost 70% of votes, beating out WeChat Pay, Alipay, and GoPay, among others. The integration brings credit card payments to Pundi X’s point-of-sale system, and allows cryptocurrencies to be purchased via PayPal from supporting Xpos merchants. Pundi X chief executive and co-founder Zac Cheah emphasized that integrations with leading global firms such as PayPal will help drive adoption blockchain-based services and products outside of the crypto community: “To be able to support a leading online payment provider in our XPOS devices can give people more confidence in using them, and can move usage of blockchain technology closer to the mainstream." PayPal loves crypto all of a sudden After shunning cryptocurrencies for a decade, recent job listings for blockchain engineers responsible for “new initiatives” at PayPal global appear to support rumours it will soon offer cryptocurrency sales to users.  PayPal payments are only supported by a handful of crypto exchanges, such as peer-to-peer marketplaces Localbitcoins and Paxful. Last week, KuCoin’s P2P

  • Derivatives Traders May Have Manipulated COMP Rally
    Derivatives Traders May Have Manipulated COMP Rally
    Some analysts believe that Compound’s Governance Token’s dramatic rally and crash may have been engineered by derivatives traders. A number of analysts have suggested the meteoric price performance of the Compound Governance Token (COMP) may have been orchestrated using derivatives. After initially changing hands for approximately $80 each upon its June 18 listing on Poloniex, COMP quickly rallied 500% to post highs above $380 June 21 as news of a Coinbase listing appeared to entice buyers. COMP/USDT on Poloniex, 1hr chart: TradingView Since the high, COMP has shed 34% of its value and is currently trading for $253.  Was COMP’s rally driven by organic demand? In a June 25 article, independent crypto blogger and Decentraland product lead Tony Sheng noted that many traders over the past week or so believed that triple-figure priced COMP was extremely overvalued, resulting in bears paying from 5% to 10% in daily fees to short the asset using derivatives. Despite this bearish sentiment and the fact that COMP tokens can be earned through yield farming, COMP prices continued to rally aggressively, with Sheng suggesting that disproportionate volume on FTX’s derivatives largely fuelled the rally. While spot listings on FTX and Poloniex generated $1.5 million in 24-hour volume leading up to COMP’s Coinbase listing, more than $6 million worth of perpetual swap contracts were traded on FTX over the same period. With COMP comprising a highly illiquid market upon launch, the article suggests that traders may have been able to drive up spot prices with relatively small buy orders to ensure profits on much larger long positions taken using FTX’s contracts: “The long and short of it (haha) is that because of the relatively large size of the COMP Perpetual Swap market, it would be profitable to buy the Perp and then buy spot in significant enough size to move the price, amplifying gains in the Perp and squeezing the shorts.” On June 24, the fou
