According to an investor, who goes by “Crypto Michaël” stated that it costs between $5 and $50 to send $100,000 in Bitcoin but costs at least $1,500 to send the same amount through Paypal. As per his original tweet:
"Transferring abroad $100,000 in $BTC through the Blockchain: fees of $5-50.
Transferring abroad $100,000 of value through Paypal: fees of $1,500-4,000 + PayPal is able to lock the amount for some period
I mean, no brainer.

Blockchain transactions are very fast. Payments can be received any moment by the recipient depending on the blockchain traffic. It might take a few seconds to a few hours. Whereas for Paypal, the central authority may hold the fund for a few days for security reasons. This may result in the delay of funds by a few days.
