Kinesis Minting Demo

Convert currency into digital gold (KAU) and silver (KAG).

Get started

Creating digital currencies simply and easily

Our minting demo is now available for users to simulate the process of creating KAU and KAG in the Kinesis Currency Exchange (KCX), otherwise known as the Kinesis Mint. Once you mint your Kinesis currencies they are emitted into the Kinesis Vault, all done on the Stellar blockchain.

How it works

You start by depositing USD or physical gold and silver to your KCX account. You can then trade out of your fiat or physical precious metal position into KAU or KAG, via the ‘minting’ process. Your newly created KAU and (or) KAG are then automatically emitted into your Kinesis Vault.

The deposit, storage and audit of physical bullion is done in accordance with our partner, ABX inline with their Quality Assurance Framework.

Once your digital currency comes into existence, and upon the release of the Kinesis Monetary System, eligible clients will be able to transfer from their Vault into their everyday banking platform that we have built to connect to a Kinesis VISA debit card and mobile banking facility.

Kinesis enables you to use real money backed by a real assets, outside of the banking system. Ready to start earning a lifetime of income generating yields.

Key points:

  • Deposit and convert your existing bullion
  • Full legal title to underlying bullion
  • Low transaction costs
  • Fully audited vaults ensuring 1:1 allocation
  • Transfer physical bullion across the world in seconds on the blockchain

This facility will allow users to create their own eWallets and mint their own Kinesis currencies (KAU and KAG) through the KCX.
