Overview: What is Paxos (USDP)?

Paxos (USDP) is the native stablecoin of the Paxos Trust Company. Paxos is creating blockchain-based payments and regulated stablecoin solutions, per its website. Paxos-issued digital assets are regulated by the New York Department of Financial Services, and the Paxos Dollar or USDP stablecoin is backed 1:1 by US dollar reserves.

 

What Makes Paxos Coin Unique?

Paxos Trust builds blockchain infrastructure for enterprise-level companies. Its regulated stablecoin platform, with USDP, is now five years old. Paxos created Paxos , then called Paxos (PAX), in 2018 as the first regulated USD-backed stablecoin. In August 2023, Paxos also launched the PayPal USD (PYUSD) token, making it available to 100 million PayPal users and the crypto ecosystem in its partnership with PayPal.

 

What is Paxos (USDP) Used For?

Paxos  or Paxos Standard is designed as a stable alternative to fiat currencies. USDP is designed for borderless peer-to-peer transfers, use in commerce, trading, and as a store of wealth. It is traded on major cryptocurrency exchanges.

As a stablecoin backed on a 1:1 ratio of US dollar assets, its price and value are pegged to the US dollar. Paxos  serves as an on-ramp for Paxos users to buy other cryptocurrencies. Paxos has crypto brokerage services and provides institutional and retail investors access to several cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin (BTC) and Pax Gold (PAXG).

Paxos Trust also offers itBit, its trading service partner, and an over the counter (OTC) desk for large trades. Paxos Trust also provides custody management services and has a stablecoin-as-a-service offering. This latter product allows companies to create their own branded US dollar-backed stablecoins.

 

How Does USDP Work?

Paxos or Pax Dollar  is an Ethereum ERC-20 stablecoin from one of the most regulated cryptocurrency projects. USDP is backed by US dollar reserves on a 1:1 basis, which means that for every USDP, Paxos Trust holds USD 1.

Paxos Trust is audited monthly by US auditing firm Withum to ensure its reserves match the amount of USDP in circulation. The pegging of USDP to the US dollar, in this manner, keeps Paxos  value stable and equivalent to USD 1. However, Paxos charts and price history show slight deviations away from $1, like other stablecoins.

To exchange USD for USDP, investors deposit USD into a Paxos account. Paxos smart contracts generate the matching amount in Paxos, and the minted Paxos is transferred to the investor’s account.

 

What Factors Determine the Price of Paxos?

The price of Paxos (USDP) is determined by the cryptocurrency’s backing to the US dollar on a 1:1 ratio. This means that 1 USDP is always worth 1 US dollar. Paxos charts may reveal slight deviations from USD 1 caused by liquidity. The only time a stablecoin will significantly deviate in value from its pegged asset is if it becomes unpegged, which is usually a sign of a major issue with the stablecoin or its reserve backing.

 

What is the Paxos(USDP) Coin Price Prediction for 2030?

As the Paxos is a stablecoin pegged to the US dollar, a Paxos coin price prediction for 2030 should forecast that the Paxos (USDP) value will be $1.

 

How Is the Paxos Network Secured?

Paxos (USDP), as an Ethereum ERC-20 token, takes security from Ethereum’s blockchain. Paxos uses the OpenZepellins Pausable Contract module. This technology uses libraries of Ethereum smart contracts and means Paxos Trust can pause Paxos (USDP) transactions if there is a security threat.
