About Pax Gold

Pax Gold is a stablecoin created by Paxos Standard that is backed by physical gold. Each PAXG token is backed by one fine troy ounce of a 400 oz London Good Delivery gold bar, which are stored in Brink’s vaults. Holders of PAXG also own the underlying gold and can easily redeem tokens for their equivalent in physical gold. Owning digital gold has the advantages of cryptocurrency (e.g. fungibility, tradability) without the drawbacks associated with ownership of a physical asset (e.g. storage costs, limited transportability). For example, unlike with traditional gold exchanges, PAXG allows users to buy and sell partial or infinitesimally small amounts of gold.
