Paxful Gift Card Marketplace Shuts Down: What Are The Alternatives?

Paxful is known as a gift card marketplace where you can buy and trade gift cards. Gift cards are also one of the popular payment options on Paxful.

However, the CEO, Ray Youssef, announced some hours ago that the business will be suspending all operations. In a blog, he referenced the suspension to the departure of key staff and the regulatory challenges in the industry. There has been a report of increased scrutiny of the cryptocurrency industry in the US.  A Twitter space was held on Tuesday where he stated that the suspension was also influenced by the lawsuit filed by his Co-founder.
