Paxos to Issue Interest-bearing Stablecoin USDL

Jun 06,2024,01:58

Reported by Cointelegraph, Paxos International is issuing an interest-bearing stablecoin called the Lift Dollar (USDL). The USDL will be regulated in the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) and pay overnight yield on the interest Paxos International earns on the reserves backing it.

The USDL will be backed 1:1 by liquid U.S. government securities and cash equivalent reserve assets held in accordance with the requirements of the ADGM’s Financial Services Regulatory Authority. Rather than earning interest on those reserves, Paxos International will charge an issuer fee for the token.

Paxos announced separately that the USDL will be available in Argentina through distributors Ripio, Buenbit, Manteca and Plus Crypto.

An Ethereum smart contract will use a mechanism called rebasing to distribute yield on the USDL automatically based on market conditions. According to Bloomberg, the yield will amount to about 5%. Paxos International said in a statement that the USDL is the first interest-bearing, regulated stablecoin. In general, stablecoin holders can also earn interest through staking, restaking and yield farming.

USDL will not be available to residents of the United States, the United Arab Emirates outside the ADGM, the United Kingdom, the European Union, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan or Singapore. Paxos International explained:

“The digital assets referred to herein have not been and will not be registered under the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended and may not be offered or sold in the US, except pursuant to an applicable exemption from registration.”
