Nicole Junkermann, NJF Capital founder discusses the current state of crypto and gold backed digital tokens.
As the Covid-19 crisis has rocked the global economy, the value of hard assets like gold and Bitcoin has risen.
The price of gold is up 35% year-on-year to April 2019.
Investor interest in gold-backed digital tokens, which can be transacted and stored via crypto currency exchanges and wallets, is also soaring.
The total value of gold-backed tokens from companies like Tether Gold, Pax Gold and DGLD has risen from $10 million to $160 million in the last twelve months.
Digital gold tokens are linked to a specific quantity of gold held by a third party in vaults in major gold markets like London or Switzerland.
Benefits of digital gold tokens include greater trading flexibility and reduced costs of ownership.
Blockchain is a crypto exchange that provides a secure wallet to buy, sell and trade cryptocurrencies, including digital gold tokens.
Blockchain is the world’s most trusted all-in-one crypto company, connecting the world to the future of finance through their suite of products including the leading crypto wallet, bitcoin explorer, and market information.
