Welcome to the Blockmason Weekly Update!

Hello, Blockmason community! Another week is upon us, which means it's time for another Weekly Update.

In this edition of the Weekly Update, we'll share how to enable PayPal settlement in Lndr, an article on how Lndr v1.2 could lead to growth in cryptocurrency adoption and more.

Are you ready? Let's get started!


Fiat Settlement with PayPal in Lndr v1.2

Lndr v1.2 is live! Try some of the new features, including much-anticipated fiat currency settlement options, thanks to Lndr's integration with PayPal.

The release of Lndr v1.2 marks a significant milestone in Lndr’s development, as we have added the ability for our users to record and settle casual debts in more than 20 fiat currencies. Before today, Lndr users could record IOUs and debts in various major currencies, but could only settle up in Ether (ETH.) Now, thanks to our new PayPal integration, Lndr users can choose to settle up in Ether or in any of the currencies that PayPal supports.

You can read the entire press release here. Or you can get started with the new PayPal integration by following the instructions below.

Step 1: Once you open your Lndr app tap the settings icon at the top of your screen, then tap on Receive PayPal Payments. Now simply tap Connect PayPal.

Step 2: After tapping on Connect PayPal you will be brought to the PayPal login screen. Fill in your PayPal credentials and tap next.

Step 3: That's it, your Lndr app should be connected to your PayPal. You can now toggle the ability to receive PayPal payments on and off. Happy lending!

We were recently featured in an article on Crypto Briefing based on an interview with Blockmason's Chief Marketing Officer, Erik MacKinnon in anticipation of Lndr v1.2 release on August 15th.

As some of you may know, last week we announced that Lndr v1.2 has added an option to settle debts or IOUs with PayPal. This was a highly requested feature and has since sparked questions about how Lndr might help to increase Cryptocurrency adoption globally.
