Paxos Trust Company, a regulated financial institution that digitizes and mobilizes assets, today introduced Paxos Crypto Brokerage, a new product offering that enables companies to integrate cryptocurrency buying, selling, holding and sending capabilities into their own applications.
Paxos Crypto Brokerage is an API-based solution that provides access to the $200 billion cryptocurrency market while managing the underlying regulatory and technological complexity.
Charles Cascarilla, CEO and co-Founder of Paxos said that the digital asset revolution has started and more and more companies like Revolut see it coming.

It offers off-the-shelf historical pricing and market data for Revolut to customize the in-app experience.
