The digital currency backed by physical silver.
Kinesis silver (KAG) is a digital currency. Each KAG is backed by one ounce of fine silver stored in fully insured and audited vaults, in your name. KAG lets you spend, trade, send and earn physical silver, anywhere in the world.
An independent monetary system for people who choose physical gold and silver, not paper money.
Use KAG as money with the Kinesis Virtual Card, converting digital assets at the moment of purchase. Earn a return on your KAG spending, holding or trading - with yields paid monthly in physical silver.
Every KAG is underpinned by physical silver bullion which is fully allocated, and held in your name, at all times. If you hold KAG, you own the underlying physical silver held in independent, fully insured vaults, across the globe.
The investment-grade, physical silver bullion underpinning KAG can be redeemed at any time. Take delivery from as little as 200oz of your fine silver from localised redemption hubs across 6 continents.
All silver bullion is managed by parent company, Allocated Bullion Exchange (ABX) - a leading global institutional exchange with more than 10 years of experience in the precious metals industry.
All of the investment-grade silver behind KAG is subject to independent audits completed by a leading commodity audit specialist, twice a year, confirming full allocation, stated quantity and quality (999 fineness) of all silver bars.
Through ABX’s global vaulting network, Kinesis charges no cost on storage and offers the lowest prices - and tightest spreads - aggregated across all our major global trading hubs.
The Kinesis Virtual Card lets you spend your silver, gold and crypto in real-time, anywhere in the world - converting your assets at the exact moment of transaction.

There are two different kinds of orders to trade silver (KAG) on the Kinesis Exchange.
When trading silver, you have the option to choose between a market order or a limit order as per your preference.
A market order allows you to instantly buy or sell precious metals at the current market price.
A limit order allows you to set the price at which you wish to buy or sell KAU. The trade will only be executed when the market price corresponds with your chosen price. Limit orders effectively allow you to trade automatically, entering and exiting markets at the price you wish.
The Holder’s yield is a passive yield earned on every single gram of silver (KAG) held with Kinesis. The yield will be paid monthly in silver for as long as you hold your precious metals with us.
The Holder’s yield is calculated from a 15% share of Kinesis’ global transaction fee revenue, distributed among all the KAG holders in the Kinesis system.

All silver bullion held by Kinesis undergoes independent, third-party audits, twice a year. With over 10 years of 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 silver-based digital currency. The quantity of silver held in our vaults is checked against the record of all KAU in circulation, stored on our blockchain.
Regular independent audits verify that every KAU within the Kinesis monetary system is based on an exact 1:1 allocated quantity of 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.
We are able to offer Kinesis users chargeless storage on their precious metals holdings, by utilising the robust vaulting network of ABX. Additionally, a share of Kinesis global transaction fee revenue is allocated to covering vaulting costs.
