Blockchain technology is about combining fundamental cryptographic primitives to build useful, trusted features like transfers and asset issuance. Defining a secure signing scheme for multi-signature offline wallets is no different, and happens to be one of the most important problems
Our approach to scaling itBit was similar to everything we do at Paxos – we were rigorous, asked questions and made sure we did all the work in advance. While we won’t tell you all the juicy details, we do want to share some insights about our process that could apply to any tech company. Take these lessons as a general framework for scaling any platform.
In a way, developing smart contracts is a throwback to a time where software was disseminated on cds with code that, once installed, must be
In September 2019, we partnered with Binance to launch a new stablecoin called Binance USD (BUSD). BUSD is regulated by the New York Department of
Meet ‘Kevin’ — the immutable data store that brings functional programming paradigms to our persistence layer
Paxos offers automation to the confirmation and settlement processes in the commodities and FX spaces through its Post-Trade Service. Automation is another word for technology
By Srinivas Gumdelli & Nathan Typanski Migrations to Kubernetes are inherently messy. While progress has been made in recent years with StatefulSet and persistent volumes,
This blog post discusses the design of the PAX ethereum smart contracts with an emphasis on our minimalist contract design philosophy.
Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to build out a world-class engineering team at Paxos, a fintech startup on an ambitious mission to enable the movement of any asset at any time in a trustworthy way.
At Paxos, we’ve been running our services on Kubernetes for a while, but had trouble managing multiple environments until we adopted Helm and ChartMuseum.
Every software system requires an exhaustive amount of configuration and maintenance: from provisioning servers, deploying code, installing and upgrading services, to storing data, managing DNS records and applying security protocols, there is a tremendous amount to consider.
The main problem with (traditional) synchronous code, is that processes hang while waiting for external data.
In this series of articles, I’m aiming to give you a solid foundation for blockchain development.
For the last 15 years, I have predominantly worked on Distributed Systems of various size and complexity. Over the last couple of years, I have become
Getting into blockchain development can be pretty intimidating. There’s a whole host of weird terms that are thrown around like “coinbase” and “merkle root” that not only look odd, but are not obvious.
At Paxos, we give all software engineering candidates a short take-home test before deciding if we want to move forward with an in-person interview.
Many people across the technology and financial industries are dubbing blockchains as the greatest innovation since the Internet.
Although asset managers initially explored Bitcoin as a new investment opportunity, it is digital securities settlement infrastructure inspired by Bitcoin’s underlying technology, blockchain, that may have a greater impact on buy-side firms.
