PayPal Holdings Inc. this week blocked a parody of its “New Money” Super Bowl ad that swapped in “bitcoin” as the future of money.

PayPal, which lets users and businesses pay digitally in a variety of ways, was one of a few financial upstarts to spend big money on a spot during last Sunday’s Super Bowl 50 football game.

The commercial that was published online earlier this month and ran during the game touts PayPal as “New Money” against “Old Money” like paper cash and banks that close at 5 p.m.
