At a 2019 World Economic Forum panel in Davos, founder Luke Nosek stated that PayPal’s initial mission was to “create a global currency that was independent of interference by these, you know, corrupt cartels of banks and governments that were debasing their currencies”. Nosek said this mission ultimately failed because of investor pressure to release a product as soon as possible.
