Discover Pax Gold: PAXG Token

What can be an alternative cryptoasset to Bitcoin? How to exchange USDT for $PAXG on Tokpie?

Since 1500 BC, humanity has been using gold as a medium of exchange and wealth’s measure. And, we suppose that it likely remains that way in the future, mainly because of the growth in money supply and inflation. So, like Bitcoin, golden assets deliver value and protect investors in times of volatility while preserving wealth for the long term. However, it’s too costly for ordinary people to have physical bars of metals. That’s why Paxos’s platform issued the PAXG token representing a digital asset connected with the serial number of natural bars of precious metal. Continue reading to learn more about Pax Gold.

Is Pax Gold a reliable asset?

According to the company statement, one ounce of gold backs each PAX Gold coin. Moreover, Brink’s vaults store these bars. So, if a person obtains PAXG (minimum amount $2000) on the Paxos platform (charged with 0.15-1% fee), he owns the underlying physical gold. Important to note that the New York State Department of Financial Services regulates the Paxos. Besides, anyone can check the bar’s serial number by entering Ethereum public address used to purchase. But the most exciting thing is that small investor doesn’t have to buy $PAXG directly from the Paxos. Instead, he can avoid Paxos’s fees and minimum purchase limitations by obtaining small fractions of Pax Gold cryptocurrency on exchanges like Binance, Kraken, Tokpie, etc.

Gold vs. Bitcoin

Historically, miners have extracted around 201,300 tonnes of gold, leaving another 53,000 tonnes in identified underground reserves. To understand the metal’s rarity imagine a cube of 22 meters on each side. Bitcoin, in contrast, is limited to 21,000,000 coins. Currently, only 2,134,000 Bitcoins aren’t in circulation yet. Moreover, look at the log scaled price chart GOLD/BITCOIN below. Due to the technical analysis, the XAU (Gold) looks oversold at the end of 2021. Therefore, $PAXG can be an excellent alternative to the BTC in the long run. However, everything is better than fiat money suffering from constant inflation, whatever you choose.
