What is Kinesis Money?

Kinesis Money is a global trading and digital asset utility platform, which facilitates the trade, management and everyday spending of native physical gold and silver-based digital assets and cryptocurrency. 

How does Kinesis Money work?

Through combining physical gold and silver with blockchain technology, the Kinesis Money platform enables fully allocated physical gold and silver to be instantly purchased, traded, sent and spent, globally.

Through redistributing a share of global transaction fee revenue back to users, Kinesis Money offers a yield on all physical precious metals held with the platform. The Kinesis Money platform facilitates instant, low-cost peer-to-peer transactions in digitalised physical gold and silver, while a globally accessible debit card facility - Kinesis VISA card - makes all listed digital assets immediately accessible for global payments.

Kinesis’ parent company Allocated Bullion Exchange (ABX), a global institutional allocated precious metals exchange, facilitates the vaulting of all underlying physical gold and silver. All bullion within the Kinesis system is available for physical redemption, with independent audits conducted biannually.

Trust and security

How do I know my gold and silver is in the vaults?

All gold and silver bullion held by Kinesis undergoes independent, third-party audits, twice a year. With over 10 years’ experience in the precious metals industry, we understand the necessary assurance only complete transparency provides.

We employ the world-class independent audit and inspection specialist, Inspectorate International, a Bureau Veritas company, to conduct regular, independent, physical audits of all bullion underpinning Kinesis gold and silver-based digital currencies. The quantity of gold and silver held in our vaults is checked against the record of all KAU and KAG in circulation, stored on our blockchain.

Regular independent audits verify that every KAU and KAG within the Kinesis monetary system is based on an exact 1:1 allocated quantity of gold and silver bullion. Additionally, independent auditors perform a series of assessments to ensure the weight and fineness of the bullion is as stated, and the quality of the storage is satisfactory.

The results of all of our audits are publicly available - here.
