WazirX Lists PAX Gold (PAXG) in INR and USDT Market

India’s most trusted and secured cryptocurrency exchange WazirX lists PAX Gold (PAXG) on Monday, 17th May. PAXG is listed in both INR and USDT market and the trading is now open.

Basically, PAX Gold (PAXG) is a digital asset issued by Paxos. We will discuss it in detail in the later section. The listing of PAXG on WazirX is a part of the rapid listing initiative, so users are not allowed to deposit and withdraw PAXG from other wallets.
