Despite the fact that the world of cryptocurrencies recently saw the birth of the token Paxos Standard at the end of last year. What is certain is that the date of birth of this stablecoin, it is not the date of foundation of the company behind its creation. Which had been quite a long time in the crypto world. And is that Paxos was founded in the year 2012, making his entrance to the business of the criptoactivos through itBit, an exchange based in Singapore. Later in the year 2015, the state of New York gave permission to the company to be the first company to offer asset-based products and cryptocurrencies. This authorization was crucial in the development of Paxos. Therefore, its performance since then has been found regulated at all times by the laws of the state of New York.
