    Like all great origin stories, The PayPal Mafia is an origin story that deserves to be told and retold.
    From Social Media to the auto and aerospace industries, the impact of the PayPal Mafia is amazing, serving as the launching point for six members to become billionaires.
    The story of PayPal actually begins with palm pilots.
    If you are too young to remember these, Palm Pilots was a specific brand of a device called a personal digital assistant, or PDAs.
    Before the smart phone era, PDAs were cutting edge handheld PCs with the ability to connect to the internet, they were truly awesome for the time and were getting popular by the late 1990’s.
    And it was in 1998, Peter Thiel and Max Levchin decided to develop technology to allow person to person payments via the use of PDAs, namely Palm Pilots.
    You see, back in those days, sending money to someone was inconvenient compared to today. You were limited to cash or writing a check, and if you were far apart you would have to send it through the mail.
    Over the years, credit and debit card infrastructure expanded but they were limited to merchants.
    So, with Thiel and Levchin’s idea, people could beam money from one another through an app on their palm pilots essentially creating a digital wallet.
    Thiel graduated from Stanford and worked as a lawyer and former derivatives trader in New York before he moved back to SF to start a hedge fund.
    Upon his return, Thiel delivered a guest lecture and that’s where he met Levchin.
    Levchin’s migrated from the Soviet Union to Chicago when he was 16 in 1991.
    He went on to the University of Illinois where he studied to become a computer scientist.
    After college, he founded an automated marketing software company called NetMeridian which he ended up selling to Microsoft.
    Musk was a child prodigy from South Africa, he taught himself how to code around 10 years old and at 12 he developed a video game called Blastar and sold the code for $500 which is around $1300 today.
    By February 1999, at the age of 27, he sold his first start up Zip2 to Compact for $307 which he received $22 million.
    And a month later Musk and his friend and business partner Greg Kouri founded X.com, the first, online bank.

I did not coin the term PayPal Mafia. It is merely a light-hearted nickname that shouldn’t be taken seriously or literally. The nickname, I believe is meant to express that the members went on to be influential.

When I hear PayPal, I remember that PayPal stood up with the GayMafia to fight for the rights of men that call themselves women to pee with little girls in public restrooms in North Carolina. PayPal said they would not locate their business in North Carolina if the Governor did not back this very controversial legislation into law. What a horrible legacy for this business. Not a fan of this company.

Pink Guy you had it right the first time.  PayPal is to banking what Bernie Madoff is to the stock market.  NEVER trust Paypal, especially if the money is coming to you from someone else.  This poor, misinformed commentator doesn't even know what Mafia is, for crying out loud!

YourTV Unplugged       Thank you.  I could not have said it better.  When you hear "Pay-Pal", you're supposed to think of a "pal" (friend) you can trust to "pay" a debt for you.  In reality, trusting Paypal with any sum of money over $500 is like trusting Jerry Sandusky to monitor a boys' little league locker room.

Well since Elon Musk comes from South Africa and he grew up in apartheid it wouldn't be such a far-fetched moniker to call him he very well may put the mafia in PayPal Mafia. I mean South Africa is like 99% black 1% white and the whites control 99% of the land and money if that's not Mafia I don't know what is. It would have sure been nice if I grew up in that kind of environment I'm sure with all them opportunities and resources how could you not make it big

The real secret sauce is how they made the third party payment network function with Swiftchips and Fedwire. That original infrastructure was built by SRI International involving messaging between different institutions and a batch fractional reserve entry to net it out. Paypal's challenge was different, and how they solved it is the real story.

They will be judged for their actions. Quran17  Verily, this Qur'ân guides to that which is most just and right and gives glad tidings to the believers (in the Oneness of God/ Allâh/Yahweh  and His Messenger, Muhammad ). who work deeds of righteousness, that they shall have a great reward (Paradise). (9) And that those who believe not in the Hereafter, for them We (God) have prepared a painful torment (Hell). (10) And man invokes (God/Allâh) for evil as he invokes (God/Allâh) for good and man is ever hasty [i.e., if he is angry with somebody, he invokes (saying): "O God/Allâh! Curse him" and that one should not do, but one should be patient] (11) And We have appointed the night and the day as two Ayât (signs etc.). Then, We have obliterated the sign of the night (with darkness) while We have made the sign of the day illuminating, that you may seek bounty from your Lord, and that you may know the number of the years and the reckoning. And We have explained everything (in detail) with full explanation. (12) And We have fastened every man's deeds[] to his neck, and on the Day of Resurrection, We shall bring out for him a book which he will find wide open. (13) (It will be said to him): "Read your book. You yourself are sufficient as a reckoner against you this Day." (14) Whoever goes right, then he goes right only for the benefit of his ownself. And whoever goes astray, then he goes astray to his own loss. No one laden with burdens can bear another's burden. And We never punish until We have sent a Messenger (to give warning). (15) And when We decide to destroy a town (population), We (first) send a definite order (to obey Allâh and be righteous) to those among them [or We (first) increase in number those of its population] who lead a life of luxury. Then, they transgress therein, and thus the word (of torment) is justified against it (them). Then We destroy it with complete destruction (16) And how many generations have We destroyed after Nûh (Noah)! And Sufficient is your Lord as an All-Knower and All-Beholder of the sins of His slaves. (17) Whoever desires the quick-passing (transitory enjoyment of this world), We readily grant him what We will for whom We like. Then, afterwards, We have appointed for him Hell, he will burn therein disgraced and rejected, - (far away from Allâhs Mercy). (18) And whoever desires the Hereafter and strives for it, with the necessary effort due for it (i.e. do righteous deeds of Allâh's Obedience) while he is a believer (in the Oneness of Allâh— Islâmic Monotheism), then such are the ones whose striving shall be appreciated, (thanked and rewarded by Allâh). (19) On - each these as well as those - We bestow from the Bounties of your Lord. And the Bounties of your Lord can never be forbidden. (20) See how We prefer one above another (in this world) and verily, the Hereafter will be greater in degrees and greater in preference (21) Set not up with Allâh/Yahweh any other ilâh (god), (O man)! (This verse is addressed to Prophet Muhammad SAW , but its implication is general to all mankind), or you will sit down reproved, forsaken (in the Hell-fire). (22) And your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him. And that you be dutiful to your parents. If one of them or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of disrespect, nor shout at them but address them in terms of honour. (23) And lower unto them the wing of submission and humility through mercy, and say: "My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy as they did bring me up when I was young." (24) Your Lord knows best what is in your inner-selves. If you are righteous, then, verily, He is Ever Most Forgiving to those who turn unto Him again and again in obedience, and in repentance. (25) And give to the kinsman his due and to the Miskîn[] (poor) and to the wayfarer. But spend not wastefully (your wealth) in the manner of a spendthrift[] . (Tafsir. At-Tabarî) (26) Verily, spendthrifts are brothers of the Shayatîn (devils), and the Shaitân (Devil Satan) is ever ungrateful to his Lord. (27) And if you (O Muhammad SAW) turn away from them (kindred, poor, wayfarer, whom We have ordered you to give their rights, but if you have no money at the time they ask you for it) and you are awaiting a mercy from your Lord for which you hope, then, speak unto them a soft, kind word (i.e. Allâh will give me and I shall give you). (28) And let not your hand be tied (like a miser) to your neck, nor stretch it forth to its utmost reach (like a spendthrift), so that you become blameworthy and in severe poverty. (29) Truly, your Lord enlarges the provision for whom He wills and straitens (for whom He wills). Verily, He is Ever All-Knower, All-Seer of His slaves. (30) And kill not your children for fear of poverty. We shall provide for them as well as for you. Surely, the killing of them is a great sin. (31) And come not near to the unlawful sexual intercourse. Verily, it is a Fâhishah [i.e. anything that transgresses its limits (a great sin)], and an evil way (that leads one to Hell unless Allâh forgives him). (32) And do not kill anyone whose killing Allâh has forbidden, except for a just cause. And whoever is killed wrongfully (Mazluman intentionally with hostility and oppression and not by mistake), We have given his heir the authority [(to demand Qisâs, Law of Equality in punishment— or to forgive, or to take Diya (blood - money)]. But let him not exceed limits in the matter of taking life (i.e he should not kill except the killer). Verily, he is helped (by the Islâmic law)[] (33) And come not near to the orphan's property except to improve it, until he attains the age of full strength. And fulfil (every) covenant. Verily! the covenant, will be questioned about. (34) And give full measure when you measure, and weigh with a balance that is straight. That is good (advantageous) and better in the end. (35) And follow not (O man i.e., say not, or do not or witness not) that of which you have no knowledge. Verily! The hearing, and the sight, and the heart, of each of those one will be questioned (by Allâh). (36) And walk not on the earth with conceit and arrogance. Verily, you can neither rend nor penetrate the earth, nor can you attain a stature like the mountains in height. (37) All the bad aspects of these (the above mentioned things) are hateful to your Lord. (38) This is (part) of Al-Hikmah (wisdom, good manners and high character) which your Lord has revealed to you (O Muhammad SAW ). And set not up with Allâh/God/yahweh any other ilâh (god) lest you should be thrown into Hell, blameworthy and rejected, (from God's Mercy). (39)

+Cordon Kalis  Am sorry to tell you that there is no single evidence that the new testament is Yahweh's revelation. The anonymous multiple writers of the new testament scriptures were neither dicipples nor eyewitnesses  nor did they receive revelation ! So, nothing obliges people to follow what isn't divine revelation. God revealed the Quran as the final everlasting uncorruptable message to correct all the previous fabrications . Reminder: Quran39 Say (O Muhammad) : (That  I , God, revealed this:) O My servants/worshippers who have been prodigal to their own hurt (sins)! Despair not of the mercy of God/Allah/Yahweh. Verily God/Allah forgives all sins. Lo! He is the Forgiving, the Merciful. (53) Turn unto your Lord repentant, and surrender unto Him, before there come unto you the doom/suffering/punishment/hell, when you cannot be helped. (54) And follow the better (guidance) of that which is revealed unto you from your Lord, before the suffering/punishment/doom/hell comes on you suddenly when you know not, (55) Lest any soul should say: Alas, my grief that I was unmindful of God/Allah, and I was indeed among the scoffers! (56) Or should say: If Allah/God had but guided me I should have been among the dutiful! (57) Or should say, when it sees the doom/suffering/punishement/hell : Oh, that I had but a second chance that I might be among the righteous! (58) (But now the answer will be): Nay, for My revelations came unto you, but you did deny them and were scornful and were among the disbelievers. (59) And on the Day of Resurrection you see those who lied concerning God with their faces blackened. Is not the home of the scorners in hell? (60) And God delivered those who ward off (evil) because of their deserts. Evil touches them not, nor do they grieve. (61) God is Creator of all things, and He is Guardian over all things. (62) His are the keys of the heavens and the earth, and they who disbelieve the revelations of God - such are they who are the losers. (63) Say (O Muhammad, to the disbelievers): Do ye bid me serve other than God? O ye fools! (64) And verily it had been revealed unto you as unto those before you (saying): If thou ascribe a partner to God your work will fail and you indeed will be among the losers. (65) Nay, but God must you serve/worship, and be among the thankful! (66) And they esteem not God as He has the right to be esteemed, when the whole earth is His handful on the Day of Resurrection, and the heavens are rolled in His right hand. Glorified is He and High Exalted from all that they ascribe as partner (unto Him). (67) And the trumpet is blown, and all who are in the heavens and all who are in the earth swoon away, save him whom God willed. Then it is blown a second time, and behold them standing waiting! (68) And the earth shined with the light of its Lord, and the Book is set up, and the prophets and the witnesses are brought, and it is judged between them with truth, and they are not wronged. (69) And each soul is paid in full for what it did. And He is best aware of what they do. (70) And those who disbelieve are driven unto hell in troops till, when they reach it and the gates thereof are opened, and the warders thereof say unto them: Came there not unto you messengers of your own, reciting unto you the revelations of your Lord and warning you of the meeting of this your Day? They say: Yea, verily. But the word of doom of disbelievers is fulfilled. (71) It is said (unto them): Enter you the gates of hell to dwell therein. Thus hapless is the journey's end of the scorners. (72) And those who keep their duty to their Lord are driven unto the Garden in troops till, when they reach it, and the gates thereof are opened, and the warders thereof say unto them: Peace be unto you! You are good, so enter you (the Garden of delight), to dwell therein; (73) They say: Praise be to God, Who hath fulfilled His promise unto us and has made us inherit the land, sojourning in the Garden where we will! So bounteous is the wage of workers. (74) And you see the angels thronging round the Throne, hymning the praises of their Lord. And they are judged aright. And it is said: Praise be to Allah/God, the Lord of the Worlds! (75)

i will probably never accept PayPal on my Online shop (s). The Reason: Many Scams happend because of PayPal. Scammer Buys on Ebay: Product send to Scammer, Scammer goes to PayPal: I didnt recieved the Product (Something like that) .. PayPal: Oh No, not good, here is your Money that you Paid... And the Seller: WTF This is My Money, i send the Product !!! Dont believe him, believe me ! (If you dont have any proof or something like that you have the problem, sometimes id could maybe be because of Scammer: oh, product not good, i want money back.. FORGET PAYPAL.

holy shit, yet another youtube video wanker that puts 80s porno music playing constantly in the background! What's with the fucked music in these supposedly informative video narratives? Just remove it, you stupid sheep BAA BAA BAAAAAAA, all sheep who follow each other mindlessly making their shit videos.

I think Elon has found his true calling. More than a programmer or a businessman, he's an engineer.

So essentially eBay funded SpaceX, Tesla, youtube, yelp, LinkedIn, etc... What if eBay didn't spend that much to buy PayPal, or didn't buy PayPal at all? What if other company bought PayPal at a later day at a smaller price? Would the PayPal Mafia still have the money, free time, motivation, opportunities to build those companies? Or would the same type of companies still exist but by different people at different times by different names? I am sure it's the later because when the time for an idea is right, there is no stopping it. Those companies would still exists in one way or another.

PayPal is a scam ... And should be illegal ... The gods on Earth are Visa and Master card.... If they like you you're legal even when you're the essence of fraud... If Visa and Master card don't like you ... You're doomed even if you use only cash.... When will the world get rid of plastic...

PayPal and eBay has been infiltrated and hacked , potentially internal affairs but facts are it’s effecting there subscribers leaving us in debt and having our information exploited, eBay won’t close my account due to fraudulent activity until there investigations are determined . 2 years later my personal info is still being exploited while my eBay account is still being fraudulently accesses and used to this day... I believe this is a banking and government backed attack on our economy to pursued our current monetary structure towards that of crypto currency. Artificial intelligence is here and mining crypto as we speak

The video discusses financial hardships resulting from exploitation of PayPal to gain cash from stolen credit cards, suggesting this issue was at its worst in the period leading up to the company's public offering in 2002, and largely resolved by the time that acquired it in 2002. How was the issue widespread, large-scale fraud resolved?
