Paxos Standard (PAX) - is a stable token of the standard ERC-20, built on the basis of Ethereum blockchain, linked to the rate of US dollar.
The main goal of emission of the stablecoin is creation of a new, secure and regulated “gateway” between the traditional financial world and the ecosystem of cryptoassets.
The company “Paxos Trust”, that has become an issuer and developer of this stablecoin, that turned out to be a real lawful digital equivalent (1:1) to fiat US dollar, became such a “gateway”.
Originally, the company “Paxos Trust” was an operator of the cryptoassets exchange ItBit. In 2012, “Paxos Trust” was providing services on trade of cryptoassets in a pair with US dollar and was oriented solely towards the large-scale American traders.
Hereafter, in 2016, the company received a trust charter from New York Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) and announced the launch of a regulated stablecoin. In other words, at the official level, the company obtained an official right to perform operations with cryptoassets, including “digitalization” of traditional securities and gold by tokens.
In September, 2018, the launch of Paxos.com platform was held along with the issuance of Paxos Standard (PAX) stablecoin.
Collaboration of the issuer company PAX with SEC (U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) and other regulating bodies provided American residents with an opportunity to procure PAX, that is completely complying with the legal and regulatory framework and standards.
Despite the ongoing battles between the US regulators and representatives of the crypto-industry, Paxos Standard token has swiftly resonated with the market and started being actively utilized for various purposes.
The combination of the best traditions of “flexibility” of Ethereum smart contracts and securing the token with real US dollars allows users to obtain a number of advantages:
Moreover, it is noteworthy that fiat funds (equivalent of issued PAX tokens) are stored in American banks, and the stablecoins themselves are stored in secure custodial “warehouses”. When reversely converted into US dollars, PAX tokens are being “burned”.
Stability, lawfulness and transparency of the token Paxos Standard, as the equivalent of real US dollar, are ensured by:
1.Official American regulators SEC and NYDFS;
2.Fiat reserves of the USA banks (with insurance of FDIC);
3.Financial support of large venture funds;
5.Audit of security of the smart contracts by the companies “Nomic Labs” and “Chain Security”.
Storage of the stablecoin Paxos Standard (PAX) is possible practically in any Ethereum wallet, supporting the standard ERC-20 (as MyEtherWallet or Exodus).
