Tether vs. Paxos
Back in January, FTX also listed the gold-pegged stablecoin of Tether's bitter rival Paxos that was launched back in September 2019.
As reported by U.Today, Tether Gold recently reached a market cap of $21 mln, thus surpassing Paxos' lustrous token in a relatively short span of time.
