    For worldwide domination, there is the risk of foreign government regulation. PayPal in Japan is pretty limited thanks to various banking laws. I would like to use PayPal more in Japan (where I live), but after a while I eventually stopped using it all together. I still use my American PayPal account, but I have since closed my Japanese account.
