Gold, probably is the first metal discovered by prehistoric humans. According to archaeological finds, gold discovery and usage dating back to 4000 years ago. However, due to the limited resources of gold, mining is too difficult and money/time consuming, to the extent that even low-grade resources (with one part per two million parts) of gold can be economically extracted too. As a result the amount of gold mined so far can be easily accommodated in three Olympic swimming pools.
But, a decade ago, a serious competitor for gold was appeared: Digital Currencies.This new creature, which had many basic differences with gold, was welcomed by investors and traders in a short time and became a true warrior against gold.
Despite the structural differences between gold and digital currencies, they are very similar : Cryptocurrencies are valuable because they have limited resources, 2nd similarity is that they are so popular, also mining of digital currencies become harder and harder; exactly like Gold. Furthermore you will probably be surprised if find that price charts of Gold and BTC are almost identical !!
Above mentioned similarities shows that combination of two treasures, will definitely be a successful approach and this is clever idea behind “ DIGITAL GOLD ” project.
The Digital Gold aims to create a smart ecosystem which unites gold metal and digital currencies.This creative association will expunge problems of Gold trading such as finding of trustable supplier, storing in a secure Bank or treasury which brings time wasting procedures and boring paperworks, constant annual fees, probable thefts and robberies, etc. Moreover, Digital Gold will solve common problems of trading of cryptocurrencies such as volatile price, trading limits, KYC issues and country limitations, etc.

This means that each coin being pegged to one gram of 99.99% FINE gold that is stored in the company’s vault. As a result, community members could use gold for pecuniary transactions or as a wealth storage method. Stability of GOLD tokens will protect token holders from volatility nature of cryptocurrencies. Additionally, they will gain profits through upraising of gold prices.But this is just beginning and trading of gold via GOLD tokens will provide some special advantages which will guarantee success of investment:
