The report said that for now, PayCoin’s largest user base is in South Korea, although the company has its sights on global outreach.
Park Sang Man, the CEO of Danal, highlighted the upcoming card’s benefits for foreign exchange and payments overseas.
Thus, the UnionPay-Danal card will support top-ups and payments in both fiat currency and crypto.
