GoldMint.io, the company pioneering in stable cryptocurrency hedged against real gold has opened its GOLD coin sale. The sale that began on April 12, 2018, allows cryptocurrency traders and standard investors to buy and sell these tokens on the Bancor Network in exchange for any of the 50 cryptocurrencies supported by the platform.
GoldMint’s GOLD coin is also available on both SIMEX (Singapore International Monetary Exchange) and IDEX (Decentralized Ethereum Asset Exchange). This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for cryptocurrency users to take advantage of this offer and purchase a stable coin to mitigate the risks generally associated with the cryptocurrency market.
The key building block that distinguishes GOLD from any other crypto-assets is the fact that real-world physical gold backs all GOLD coins. Gold is purchased on the Chicago CME exchange under delivery futures and then placed in a bank of the United States Federal System. In situations of high volatility, the GOLD tokens will allow crypto-investors to mitigate risk by converting their existing crypto-portfolio, instead of exchanging and parking the value in fiat currency.
The smart contract governing GOLD is designed to ensure that the number of tokens sold doesn’t exceed the amount of gold held by GoldMint. Additionally, the platform’s smart contracts guarantee complete transparency of information about all the operations including the amount of gold reserves held by the company. This information signifies the ability of GoldMint to buy back GOLD at the current trading price.
How to Buy GOLD?
The GOLD coins can be bought using any of the cryptocurrencies exchanged at the Bancor exchange which will later be transferred to Ethereum wallet. The GoldMint platform is based on Ethereum blockchain, making it compatible with Ether wallets as well. By the end of 2018, the team behind the GoldMint platform plan to launch their very own personal account which will be designed with a multi-currency purse allowing users to buy tokens using fiat money, or if they prefer, choose to perform bank transfer, or make a purchase using their credit cards.
