PayPal USD

Established in 2008 in the USA, PayPal is now one of the largest online payments providers in the world. Only in 2013, PayPal moved 180 billion US dollars in 26 currencies across 193 nations. By now, more than 157 million PayPal accounts have been registered all around the globe.

In 2002, PayPal was acquired by the eBay multinational corporation. 10 million financial transactions in more than 100 currencies are being processed by PayPal on the daily basis. PayPal makes over 40% of eBay total profits. In average, PayPal revenues grow 20% each year.

It’s rather curious that PayPal is into the program being designed to enable financial transactions for people in space. It is to be used by astronauts, space tourists and in space hotels when the time comes.
