This strategic step demonstrates the exchange’s absolute commitment to offering its users a smooth trading experience in full regulatory compliance. Let’s look at all the details below. 

PayPal USD (PYUSD) stablecoin makes its debut on Bitget

As anticipated, Bitget, the leading exchange specializing in crypto derivatives and copy trading, is happy to announce the upcoming inclusion of PayPal USD (PYUSD) in its trading platform. 

PYUSD is a stablecoin carefully designed to meet the strictest compliance standards. Based on the Ethereum blockchain, it is backed by 1:1 equivalent reserves consisting of U.S. dollar bank deposits and U.S. Treasury bonds, ensuring stability and reliability.

According to the latest market data, PYUSD boasts a total capitalization of $44,836,368, representing only 0.17% of USDC’s total supply. Its daily trading volume reaches the considerable figure of US$1.76 million, with significant contributions from major exchanges globally.

Particularly noteworthy is the fact that 88% of the total PYUSD is safely stored at Paxos Trust, while cryptocurrency trading platforms account for only 9% of the total supply. 

This distribution, with 6.15 percent on Kraken, 2.14% on, and 1.79% on Coinbase, testifies to the growing potential of PYUSD in the cryptocurrency market.

In addition, it should be noted that Paxos Trust Company, LLC, the entity acting as custodian and issuer of PYUSD, is proud to hold the BitLicense issued by the New York State Department of Financial Services. 

This dual license highlights the rigorous approach to compliance at every stage of PYUSD’s journey.
