The OPAL cryptocurrency keeps making headlines as of late, because of their file sharing/storing platform called OpalDrive, and the fact they have been added to SuperNET. Furthermore, the team tries to keep taking things to the next level when it comes to offering people a way to purchase the coins. Paypal is one of the options being looked at right now.
While there are quite a few exchanges listing the OPAL, there is a growing interest from investors who are not usually involved in digital currency. Therefore, a new solution has to be found in order to gain more mainstream attention to Opal.
The development team has received quite a few inquiries from the public on how they can obtain OPAL without having to buy Bitcoin first and then exchange it through the likes of Bittrex or Cryptsy. One of the ways to go is looking at Paypal as a payment option.
As we are all well aware however, Paypal brings quite a few risks to the table as well, as there will be people trying to abuse the system and claim their money back after they received Opal coins. Plus, transactions can always be flagged for random reasons , which usually leads to funds being frozen until the matter is resolved (which can take up to 180 days).
One way to circumvent these circumvent these potential threats is by running the Paypal/OPAL exchange method through a third party service. Wesellcryptos is one such platform offering a similar service to both Pandacoin and Dogecoin.
In other Opal news, the OPAL multipool will be shut down temporarily as there seems to be an issue with the pool payouts. All payments will be processed manually , which could take up some time, so please be patient.
Once the entire backlog of payouts has been manually processed, the OPAL multipool will be moved to a new platform, and a server is being set up as we speak. More details will be announced soon, so we will keep an eye out for additional information.
