With MetalSwap is possible to protect your GOLD digital asset against its price volatility.

This advantage is made possible by exploiting the wrapped version of a synthetic asset, called PAX GOLD, which replicates its performance. The Syntetizer is the tool used to lock PAXG as to mint

WPAXG informative

MetalSwap’s Hedging Swap tool and relative Smart Contracts were not designed to be used with fee-transfer tokens.

In order to solve this issue, a WRAPPED ERC20 token was created by MetalSwap from PAXG, called WPAXG. This allows PAXG holders to lock them into the Smart Contract to mint and use WPAXG.

WPAXG holders will always be able to unwrap them through the appropriate function of the smart contract and get back the original PAXG (minus the fees applied by Paxos).

While using WPAXG tokens, holders are not subject to any transaction percentage charges as they are for PAXG, and for this reason they are compatible with the Hedging Swaps Smart Contract system of MetalSwap.

WPAXG is used to create the liquidity pool needed for the Hedging Swap tool.

WPAXG/USDT has been introduced as a new Hedging Swap pair.

In order to get WPAXG, needed to hedge swaps on gold downwards volatility, you need to use MetalSwap webApp to wrap 10 of their PAXG tokens.

Once the wrapping is done, the user will receive in their own wallet 9.998 $WPAXG.

If they were to de-wrap them via the MetalSwap webapp, the WPAXGs will be burned and the user will receive back 9.9960004 $PAXG.

>The reduction of the quantity during the exchange are made by the expense imposed and taken by Paxos Gold, equal to 0.02% of your token per single transaction, as you can see on the blockchain.
