Throughout history, gold has been a popular choice of investment. For several generations, it was even the preferred medium of exchange. Gold was money, and for great reasons: durability, scarcity, and malleability. Its intrinsic value has also seen it survive many global economic recessions (1975, 1982, 1991, and 2009). For comparison, fiat currencies have depreciated […]

When money is spoken of as being as old as human civilisation, we’re really talking about gold. Ever since man discovered gold, it has been used as money in one form or another.

London Startup Aurus Launches Gold-Backed Crypto Token, Possibly Opening The Gold Market To New Investors
The idea that crypto coins can be used for everyday goods and services is not a reality, yet. Stablecoins offer the potential for crypto to be used as day-to-day payments because their value is pegged to an underlying asset, where price stability is more consistent. Still, the middleman sitting in-between buyer and seller exists to exchange digital […]
For a long time, gold was money. Right up until the gold standard was abandoned for a fiat monetary system just 50 years ago.

A reliable […]

The term, asset-backed token (ABT) speaks for itself, it’s where the storage, value, and management of an asset is transferred and represented by digital tokens on the blockchain. The tokenization of an asset doesn’t affect the physical asset itself, it changes the way ownership and transfer of value of that asset is managed. ABT’s are […]
There’s a lot that happened in the blockchain industry looking back on last year, one of the most notable events being the cryptocurrency battle with the brutal bear market.
With the emergence of blockchain technology, buying, selling and trading gold is about to become more efficient than ever. Gold is leaving behind its long and self-destructive paper-based trading past and embarking on a new digital relationship powered by blockchain.
Throughout the ages, gold has been associated with wealth, prestige and power and has long been considered a prized asset for investors around the world. The numbers don’t lie — approximately $5.9 trillion of gold are traded every year, an amount that dwarves the value of the DOW Jones Industrial Complex and S&P 500 combined.
