What is PAX Gold?

As the name implies, PAX Gold, or PAXG, is a commodity-based stablecoin that is backed by physical gold. It is issued by New York-based fintech firm Paxos. Just like some USD stablecoins, such as Tether USD, each PAXG token is backed by 1 fine troy ounce (t oz) of gold. The gold is maintained in a secure vault that is insured and maintained by Paxos. The asset was created to give investors seamless access to the gold market without the use of derivatives, such as ETFs or futures. The token was built using the Ethereum blockchain and conforms with the ERC20 standard. It can be used with any Ethereum-based application and stored within a personal cryptocurrency wallet just like other cryptocurrencies. At any time, each coin can be swapped for physical gold, as long as the redemption amount is above 1t oz. Although 1t oz is required when withdrawing funds, every PAXG token can be fractionalised and split into a whopping 18 decimal points.
