What is PayString?
PayString is a payment identifier protocol developed by Ripple and provides a single ID for anyone needing to send or receive money.
You can register for your unique PayString, username$paystring.crypto.com, which will allow you and other senders to deposit funds into the Crypto.com App with ease.
Supported cryptocurrencies for PayString deposits:

You can also whitelist external PayString to withdraw funds from the Crypto.com App. Depending on the external PayString, most of the Crypto.com App listed coins can be withdrawn to the whitelisted PayString.

BTC, XRP, ETH and supported ERC-20 tokens i.e. CRO
