Pax Gold (PAXG) is the safest way to own investment-grade physical gold.
PAXG offers investors an easy and cost-effective way to own investment-grade physical gold with all the benefits of the blockchain. Each Pax Gold (PAXG) token is backed by one fine troy ounce of gold, stored in LBMA vaults in London. If you own PAXG, you own the underlying physical gold, held in custody by Paxos Trust Company.
The allocated gold that backs PAXG is custodied in LBMA vaults and audited monthly. Paxos is a trust company and custodian regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services.
Pax Gold comes with a lower cost structure than that of other gold tokens, gold ETFs and gold bars, with a low minimum purchase amount and zero storage fees.
Since PAX Gold is issued by a state-chartered trust company, customer assets are kept separately from the company’s assets.

Pax Gold (PAXG) is an asset-backed token where one token represents one fine troy ounce of a London Good Delivery gold bar, stored in professional vault facilities.

PAXG gives customers the benefits of actual physical ownership of specific gold bars with the speed and mobility of a digital asset. Customers are able to have fractional ownership of physical bars.

At Revix we carry out both regulated and unregulated activities. We are regulated through its wholly-owned subsidiary RVX SA Capital (Pty) Ltd ("Revix Capital"). Revix Capital is a South African private company which is regulated and authorised to offer various financial services within the traditional financial sector.
However, crypto asset-related activities still need to be fully regulated by the South African Financial Sector Conduct Authority (FSCA). The FSCA has taken the first step toward regulating the crypto asset industry in South Africa by declaring crypto assets as financial products within the scope of the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Services Act (FAIS).
What this means is that from 1 June 2023, Revix and other South African cryptocurrency platforms will have to obtain a license from the FSCA to provide their services to the public. It’s business as normal while we apply for the license – your ability to buy, sell, store and explore cryptocurrency will not be impacted during this time.This is a positive step for both the cryptocurrency industry and South Africans. We fully support this decision as it helps to protect consumers and ensures greater trust in the industry.
Revix offers its crypto-related services through Revix SA OpCo (Pty) Ltd ("Revix SA") and Revix International Limited. Revix SA is a South African company and qualifies as a Crypto Asset Service Provider under FAIS.
It’s important to note that Revix crypto accounts do not fall under local banking laws and that investments in cryptocurrencies, at this time, are not covered by the Financial Ombudsman Service or subject to protection under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
