What is Pax Gold (PAXG)?

The asset-backed token Pax Gold (PAXG) is backed by one fine troy ounce of a London Good Delivery gold bar that is kept in a secure vault. Anyone who owns PAXG has custody of the gold under their ownership rights, which are held by Paxos Trust Company. Because PAXG represents actual gold, its value is directly correlated with the current market price of that actual gold.

Since actual gold is not readily divvied up or transported in a flexible manner, Pax Gold's major objective is to make gold more transferable.

Customers can benefit from owning specific gold bars physically through PAXG while still having the speed and mobility of a digital asset. Customers are allowed to own a portion of actual bars. Customers can swiftly and easily exchange their tokens for allocated gold, unallocated gold, or fiat currency on the Paxos network, lowering their exposure to settlement risk.

One fine troy ounce of gold equals one PAXG token, with a 1:1 ratio between the amount of gold and the total supply of PAXG. The entire supply of gold that makes up PAXG fluctuates regularly as PAXG's market value rises and falls. Owning minuscule fractions of a token that are divisible to 18 decimal places is an option.

The entire PAXG protocol was built on the Ethereum (ETH) blockchain and is protected by a proof-of-stake (PoS) system. However, PAXG is not only compatible with Ethereum and can also be implemented on other blockchains.
