Want to dip your toes in the world of virtual assets and cryptocurrencies? If you’re a PayMaya user, you can now buy and earn from digital assets such as Bitcoin and Ethereum—for as low as P1—using the platform.

There is no need to register for another account, apply for an upgrade, or use another app. All you need to have is an upgraded PayMaya account to start trading in a variety of the most popular coins directly from your PayMaya wallet. You can also seamlessly buy and sell crypto anytime with no extra cash in and cash out fees. 

PayMaya is currently rolling out the feature progressively to its base. Other popular coins and tokens available for trading are Cardano (ADA), Chainlink (LINK), Uniswap (UNI), Solana (SOL), Quant (QNT), Polkadot (DOT), Polygon (MATIC), and Tether (USDT), with more coming soon. 

PayMaya developed this feature under its Invest platform in connection with Coinbase Institutional, the largest publicly traded crypto company in the world.

To help you understand the basics of crypto, PayMaya gives you access to tutorials and additional guided content in the app. Once you’re ready, you can enjoy a seamless and easy-to-navigate interface for your transactions as you buy, sell, hold, and even cash out your earnings.

How to start buying crypto on your PayMaya app

  2. Tap Buy on the bottom of the screen, then select the desired cryptocurrency. 
  3. Input the desired Philippine Peso (PHP) amount you want to spend. You will see the equivalent cryptocurrency value based on an estimated market price. Then, tap Next on the upper right hand of the screen.
