What is Pax Dollar (USDP)?

"The infrastructure Paxos is building is potentially transformative for fields beyond cryptocurreny"

A flat-collateralized stablecoin, Pax Dollar was established in September of 2018. Stablecoins are digital currencies that are intended to have as little price volatility as possible in relation to a certain stable asset or a basket of assets.

Pax Dollar has the benefit of minimizing price risk while transacting with blockchain assets. The Pax Dollar tokens (USDP) are issued on the Ethereum blockchain as ERC-20 tokens and are 1:1 collateralized by the USD stored in US bank accounts owned by Paxos. 

It is also the one of three stablecoins approved by Wall Street regulators, alongside GUSD and BUSD.

By developing a seamless worldwide network, Pax Dollar aims to benefit the greater financial ecosystem. All digital assets can be easily mobilized in this environment, with a high degree of adaptability and accessibility. The vision of Paxos is a world in which commodities, securities, and digital assets may all be moved instantly and anyplace.
