Paxos’ Metal-Backed Cryptocurrency to Launch This Year

Paxos Metal-Backed Cryptocurrency

Paxos, a Blockchain trust company will be launching it’s digital token backed by precious metals this year, according to Paxos CEO, Chad Cascarilla in an interview with Fortune’s Balancing the Ledger on March 11th.

In the course of the interview, Cascarilla was asked whether Paxos is working on a gold-backed coin, and he replied thus “it is something we will see definitely this year.” “We are excited about the concept of being able to take a commodity, and I think precious metals are really obvious ones, and gold is probably the most obvious and being able to tokenize it,”

In order to implement the concept, Paxos has to ensure it holds the amount of inventory “in the real world” equal to the one registered on blockchain. Cascarilla said:

“In order to put something in a blockchain, you have to make sure you have the right amount of inventory in the real world versus what is in the blockchain. How you do with a gold token is how much gold do you have in a vault equals how many gold tokens outstanding.”

According to Cascarilla, the firm’s status as a financial institution allows the firm to utilize the banking system to ensure that they hold backing assets “in the real world” that correspond to the number of assets on a blockchain. While the company is planning to launch its precious metal-backed coin this year, Cascarilla said that Paxos has not set the exact date yet.

  1. I was wondering if anyone knows what happened to Dimepiece Los Angeles celebrity streetwear brand? I am unable to check out on Dimepiecela site. I’ve read in GQ that they were bought out by a UK hedge fund in excess of $50 m. I’ve just bought the LA OG Crewneck Sweatshirt from Ebay and totally love it xox

  2. I manage a vape shop web directory and we have had a listing from a vape shop in the USA that additionally offers for sale CBD items. A Month afterwards, PayPal has written to use to say that our account has been limited and have asked us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop directory site. We do not sell CBD product lines like CBD oil. We simply offer promotion and marketing services to CBD firms. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Major Health and wellness Retailer and if you take a good peek, you will witness that they supply a somewhat substantial variety of CBD goods, primarily CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement solution. It emerges that PayPal is employing double standards to different companies. As a result of this constraint, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related website. This has restrained my payment choices and now, I am intensely reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have checked with a barrister from a Magic Circle law firm in London and they said that what PayPal is doing is entirely illegal and discriminatory as it ought to be applying a systematic benchmark to all firms. I am yet to check with a different lawyer from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
