Paypal and Bitcoin

Is it only me that is worried that PayPal has suddenly started trying to trade Bitcoin to its customers?

Fortunately eBay's new payment system (which puts the proceeds of sales into my bank account, not PayPal) means that my PayPal balance is dropping - I'm buying things with it and putting very little in, and won't worry about changing that until the balance drops a good deal more. Actually, "fortunately" may be the wrong word, the big drop in income PayPal must be seeing because of this change may be a big part of the reason they've decided to go for the "destined to be screwed by quantum computing" market...
