Silicon Valley-based payments giant PayPal

is again looking to expand the use of its PYUSD stablecoin.

The company announced that starting Thursday, U.S. clients will be able to send international money transfers using the company’s PYUSD stablecoin. Through its cross-border payments service, Xoom, U.S. customers can now convert PYUSD to USD and then send money to “recipients in approximately 160 countries” without being charged transaction fees, PayPal said in a statement.

PayPal appears confident the market will embrace more cost-effective ways to send international money transfers. In its statement, it cited a World Bank report that said the “global average cost of sending $200 is just over 6%.”

The fintech company is also simultaneously trying to increase the use of its stablecoin, launched last year, while establishing itself as a trusted organization in digital assets. When it launched its stablecoin PayPal said the world is shifting towards greater use of cryptocurrencies.

“Enabling U.S. users of Xoom the option to fund cross-border money transfers using PYUSD builds on our goal of driving mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies,” PayPal’s Jose Fernandez da Ponte said in a statement. Da Ponte is PayPal’s SVP of the blockchain, cryptocurrency, and digital currency group.
