The future of PayPal passes from cryptocurrencies and from Honey

Let's start with the latter, with Honey, the subject of an acquisition brought to term in November 2019 against an economic investment quantified in 4 billion dollars (the most important ever for the company). The operation, defined as "dangerous for security" by Amazon, allowed PayPal to extend its hands on the homonymous extension for the Chrome browser dedicated to online shopping, already used by over 17 million users globally, which reports the best offers practiced by e-commerce stores. Some of the information collected and processed will be made available in aggregate and anonymous form to merchants so that they can develop more effective sales strategies.
