Victoria, Seychelles - September 26, 2023 - Bitget, top crypto derivatives and copy trading exchange, is thrilled to announce the upcoming listing of PayPal USD (PYUSD), a stablecoin issued and hosted by Paxos Trust Company, LLC, on its trading platform starting today. This strategic move reflects Bitget's commitment to providing traders with a seamless and compliant trading experience.

PYUSD is a stablecoin meticulously crafted to adhere to the highest standards of compliance. Published on the Ethereum blockchain, it is backed by a 1:1 equivalent of US dollar bank deposits and US Treasury bonds, ensuring its stability and trustworthiness.

As of the latest market data, PYUSD boasts a total market capitalization of 44,836,368, with a total supply representing a mere 0.17% of USDC. The daily trading volume stands at an impressive 1.76 million US dollars, with significant contributions from top exchanges worldwide.

Notably, 88% of PYUSD remains securely held in Paxos Trust's wallet, while cryptocurrency trading platforms account for just 9% of the total supply. This distribution, with 6.15% on Kraken, 2.14% on, and 1.79% on Coinbase, signifies the burgeoning potential of PYUSD in the crypto market.

The introduction of PYUSD to Bitget is underpinned by an ironclad commitment to regulatory compliance. PayPal, Inc. holds a virtual currency business license issued by the New York State Department of Financial Services, ensuring that all activities related to PYUSD fall within the bounds of established regulatory frameworks.

Furthermore, Paxos Trust Company, LLC, the custodian and issuer of PYUSD, is a proud holder of a BitLicense from the New York State Department of Financial Services. This dual-layered licensing underscores the commitment to compliance at every step of the PYUSD journey.

For Bitget's trading users, the addition of PYUSD opens up a world of compliance-driven possibilities. As a stablecoin with impeccable regulatory standing, PYUSD offers traders the ability to execute compliant withdrawals via PayPal. This feature presents an attractive proposition for traders seeking seamless compliance solutions without compromising on cost-efficiency.
