PAX Gold – Gold Backed Stablecoin
Cloudbet, the online platform for casino games and sports betting has announced support for PAX Gold. Prior to the announcement, Cloudbet operated a platform that let players bet in Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, and other cryptocurrencies.
With the addition of PAX Gold, Cloudbet is allowing users to bet with gold for the first time. PAX Gold is a stablecoin where each PAX GOLD is backed by 1 fine troy ounce of gold managed by Paxos. By tokenizing gold, Paxos gives investors the ability to hold digital gold tokens without needing to physically hold onto gold bars.
A spokesperson from Cloudbet stated that:
“Tokenisation allows individuals to express their spending habits through the assets they choose to hold, rather than having to use currencies to which they hold no philosophical or economic attachments. In this case, we’re empowering players that want to own gold with the means to place bets with a gold casino or a gold sportsbook.”

According to the announcement by Cloudbet, the platform will be running PAXG promotions. Users who deposit PAXG will be eligible for a 5x welcome bonus, which is valued around $10,000 at current market prices.
