Paxos Standard pitched as ‘fastest growing stablecoin’

Dorothy Jean Chang, VP Marketing & Comms at Paxos, tweets that demand is “accelerating faster than I can tweet up with”

Paxos says that it has issued over $50 million worth of its recently launched Ethereum-based, US dollar-backed stablecoin.

That wasn’t the only Twitter update from the company…

The Paxos Standard (PAX) token snagged regulatory approval from the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) last month.

It gives financial markets the power to transact in a fully USD-collateralised asset with the benefits of blockchain technology and oversight from financial regulators, notes Charles Cascarilla, CEO and Co-founder of Paxos.

“We believe that it represents a significant advancement in digital assets, leveraging the oversight and stability of the traditional financial system and enabling a frictionless global economy.”

Trust and volatility

“In the current marketplace, the biggest hindrances to digital asset adoption are trust and volatility. As a regulated trust with a 1:1 dollar-collateralised stablecoin, we believe we are offering an asset that improves on the utility of money,” comments Cascarilla.
