I don’t know enough to work out if I can trust PAXG, Tether Gold or any of the other gold stablecoins for the long term.

My attitude to gold is to

  1. have some where I can hold it
  2. some allocated in a vault outside the banking system in a different country than the one I live in
  3. some on exchanges for liquidity and quick trades.

Something like PAXG falls into the last category. So do GLD, and other gold-backed ETFs. They are liquid and you can trade in fractions of an ounce. The trading costs are fractions of the mark-up when buying physical PMs (esp. silver).

Periodically rebalance between the three categories above.
