BUSD is the largest regulated stablecoin in the world, powered by a partnership between Paxos and Binance, the world’s leading digital asset exchange. BUSD is issued on the Ethereum blockchain, approved and regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services (“NYDFS”), and issued by Paxos Trust Company, a leading regulated blockchain infrastructure provider.
As a regulated stablecoin, BUSD is held to high standards of operation and customer protections that make it safer than other stablecoins available today. BUSD is backed by only cash and cash equivalents, which are all held by Paxos in reserve accounts. BUSD publishes monthly disclosures of its reserve composition and monthly attestations from a leading accounting firm on its total outstanding supply and reserves.
Because the BUSD reserve assets are held by Paxos Trust, they are what is known as “bankruptcy remote.” This means the dollars backing BUSD are held entirely separate from company assets – the reserve assets are only accessible to the BUSD customer, regardless of what happens to Paxos. BUSD is also “greenlisted” by NYDFS meaning it is pre-approved for use by companies that want to list and use it.
