PayPal Holdings, Inc. recently announced the acquiring of Curv, a provider of cloud-based infrastructure for digital asset security based in Tel Aviv, Israel. This step will help to accelerate and expand PayPal’s initiatives to support cryptocurrencies and digital assets.

In October 2020, PayPal pledged its commitment to help shape the role that digital currencies will play in the future of financial services and commerce. To drive sustained growth and innovation in this area, the company recently created a business unit focused on blockchain, crypto and digital currencies. The newly acquired Curv will join the recently formed group, with its strong team of technologists adding technical expertise to PayPal.

“The acquisition of Curv is part of our effort to invest in the talent and technology to realize our vision for a more inclusive financial system,” said Jose Fernandez da Ponte, vice president and general manager, blockchain, crypto and digital currencies, PayPal. “During our conversations with Curv’s team, we’ve been impressed by their technical talent, entrepreneurial spirit, and the thinking behind the technology they’ve built in the last few years. We’re excited to welcome the Curv team to PayPal.”

“As a pioneer in security infrastructure for digital assets, Curv is proud to be recognized as an innovator and trusted partner to leading financial institutions around the world,” said CEO Itay Malinger. “Now, as the adoption of digital assets accelerates, we feel there’s no better home than PayPal to continue our journey of innovation. We’re excited to join PayPal in expanding the role these assets play in the global economy.”

PayPal expects to complete the acquisition in the first half of 2021. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Curv was founded in 2018 by CEO Itay Malinger and CTO Dan Yadlin.
