Please follow the steps below if you are interested in withdrawing Digital Assets held in your Paxos account to an external wallet. Prior to initiating a withdrawal, please read through the important information below.
- It is your responsibility to ensure the wallet you are withdrawing to supports the network and tokens being withdrawn. Please note that USDP, PAXG, AAVE, LINK, MATIC and UNI withdrawals are sent via the ERC-20 network. Additionally, SOL will be sent via the SPL network.
- As of February 21, 2023, Paxos no longer supports withdrawals of BUSD from our platform. Learn more.
- Once your transaction has been broadcasted, Paxos can no longer cancel your request or help you retrieve your tokens.
- You will receive an email from Paxos asking you to confirm first time withdrawals made to a new address. Failure to confirm the address does not lead to the cancellation of your request!
- If your link has expired, you may still confirm your withdrawal address in your Paxos profile settings. For more information, please see Managing Saved Wallet Addresses and Bank Accounts.
- Paxos passes through the network transaction or gas fee to the customer when transferring digital assets to external wallets. The fee will deduct from your total transfer amount.
