The records also indicated that PayPal held $63 million of other unnamed digital assets. According to PayPal, it held onto crypto assets as a means of benefiting its customers.

“Due to the unique risks associated with cryptocurrencies, including technological, legal, and regulatory risks, we recognize a crypto asset safeguarding liability to reflect our obligation to safeguard the crypto assets held for the benefit of our customers, which is recorded in accrued expenses and other current liabilities on our consolidated balance sheet.”
