“Gold should not be viewed as the means to make you rich, but rather, as a means to avoid the debts that can make you poor” -BitGold Inc. May 13, 2015.

"No matter where you live in the world gold has effortlessly held its commodity value over time relative to costs like food and energy that we require as humans, making it one the most important savings tools for most of the human population”.

Our mission is to make gold accessible and useful in digital payments and secure savings.

We're advancing the digital payments revolution by helping people securely acquire, store, and now spend gold with unprecedented simplicity. BitGold accounts are free and can be opened in minutes. We provide users with a secure vault account to purchase and hold gold, the ability to make and receive instant gold payments, and a prepaid card for spending gold at traditional points of sale or converting your gold balance to local currency at any ATM machine. All gold bullion is fully redeemable as 1kg gold bullion bars or 10g GoldCubes®

BitGold takes transparency and accountability seriously. Learn more at Transparency Buying Physical Gold.

A New Global Operating System for Gold BitGold is an internet software service that makes vaulted gold accessible for savings and mobile payments; the first full-reserve ‘online bank’ like platform with e-payments and debit card for sending & spending gold.

BitGold Investor Proposition:
Significant market potential exists across all geographies and all income segments for transaction-accessible savings accounts based on gold as a store of value. GoldMoney believes that it can provide new leadership and innovation in a trillion dollar market by providing a fresh narrative, connecting securely vaulted gold to electronic payment networks that previously did not exist, and by harnessing the connectivity of a growing mobile-internet.

The GoldMoney Proposition is to deliver strong growth in the user and asset base under both brands, building a global network for both savings and transactions. By empowering our clients, and by delivering more value to each individual than we expect to receive in return, we can build a network of lasting relationships in the world's largest commodity-money market. We believe that investing in this relationship can deliver significant value to our shareholders over the long-term, creating a reflexive global-revenue model with a scalable internet financial service, while also benefiting an entire network of stakeholders.
