PAX Gold (PAXG) stands as an ERC-20 stablecoin, backed by physical gold reserves securely stored in London vaults. Offering an accessible pathway to gold investment, PAXG enables users to own fractional amounts of physical gold without the burden of storage and transportation costs. This digital asset can be traded on both centralized crypto exchanges and decentralized exchanges (DEXs).
Gold has retained its value as a precious commodity for millennia, serving various purposes like jewelry, a store of value, and a hedge against inflation. Nonetheless, purchasing physical gold can prove costly and cumbersome, particularly for retail investors. Storing gold necessitates secure locations, often in bank vaults, and transporting it becomes challenging due to its weight.
Paxos Trust Company seeks to address these hurdles by introducing PAX Gold (PAXG), a tokenized representation of gold integrated into the blockchain. Each PAX Gold token is equivalent to one troy ounce of a 400-ounce London Good Delivery gold bar, safeguarded in reputable gold vaults like Brink’s. As PAXG represents physical gold, its value directly aligns with the real-time market value of the underlying gold.
Regulated and approved by the New York State Department of Financial Services, PAXG maintains transparency and accountability. Regular third-party audits verify that Paxos’ gold reserves align with the supply of PAXG tokens, with attestation reports publicly accessible on Paxos’ official website. Additionally, PAXG’s developers conduct regular smart contract audits to identify and rectify potential bugs and vulnerabilities.
By combining the benefits of blockchain technology with the stability of physical gold, PAX Gold offers an innovative and efficient way for investors to participate in the gold market while bypassing traditional barriers and complexities associated with owning physical gold.
