Pax Gold (PAXG) is a digital asset fully-backed 1:1 by physical gold reserves held in custody by Paxos Trust Company, an entity fully regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS). Built as an ERC-20 token on the Ethereum blockchain, PAXG is divisible, fungible, portable, and can be easily obtained. It does not have the drawbacks of limited transportability or high storage costs of physical gold, which is a solution to a fundamental problem for an established market.
PAXG offers investors a cost-effective way to own investment-grade physical gold in the digital form of the underlying asset. With PAXG, investors can gain exposure to fractional tokenized gold to diversify their portfolio risks against the potential volatility in crypto.
Each PAXG token is backed by one fine troy ounce (t oz) of a 400 oz London Good Delivery gold bar. The gold bars are stored in Brink’s vault, approved by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA). The matching supply of PAXG tokens and underlying gold assets is attested every month. This report is posted on Paxos’ website each month at https://paxos.com/attestations/.
The market cap of PAXG now stands at about $558 million with a total supply of over 320,000 PAXG tokens issued (as of early September 2022). PAXG’s all-time high (ATH) price peaked at $2,241 in May 2021 and is now trading at about $1,700 (as of early September 2022).
Pax Gold (PAXG) is available on the Matrixport app, alongside other blue-chip cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Solana (SOL), Stablecoins (USDT & USDC), and many more. Users can swap, auto-invest, deposit, withdraw and transfer PAXG on the app.
