The Pioneering Real Estate Investment
Platform Powered by Blockchain

Setting a New Standard

The Praetorian Group will create the world's first stable coin linked by real estate. The PAX token is also the first Initial Coin Offering ("ICO") to file with the U.S. Security and Exchange commission and seeks to help create a standard for future ICOs.

Our Mission

The Praetorian Group's goal is to create a sound money cryptocurrency that is backed by a real world asset to ensure a protection of value and allow for long-term appreciation.

A stable coin with tangible value

Traditionally, owning a property requires a mortgage or a substantial amount of cash. With the PAX token, you can own a percentage of real estate property without breaking your finances. This foundation will give the PAX token a secure, tangible value that many other cryptocurrencies lack.

Transparent and Accountable

The Praetorian Group has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to register our initial coin offering (ICO) as a security. This will hold PAX to the same standards as traditional investments including bonds, equities and futures.

Meet the Team

Our senior leaders and advisors share a vision of making real estate investments available to the masses through use of blockchain and cryptocurrency. PAX believes that this approach can bring an abundance of wealth to the world while also enabling the upward mobility of neighborhoods and people left behind during the last several decades.
