Indeed, Paxos Standard offers liquidity. It is also available around the clock. As a result, it is possible to enjoy 24/7 transaction settlements. That is not all. It is fully redeemable. Paxos protects customers’ investments and customers’ assets. Paxos is capable of playing those roles because it’s a trust company.
