Sprott has embarked on several new ventures that seek to deliver the next generation of precious metals investing. These projects combine the benefits of digital blockchain technology and the proven advantages of investing in physical precious metals bullion.
Making Money Fairer.
Reintroducing gold as money, for the first time ever as a global currency that can be spent real-time at the electronic point of sale.
Glintpay.com is a FinTech business operating a multi-currency account and debit card that uniquely enables gold to be used as money. Founded in the UK in 2016, Glint established the first app based account in February 2018 that gave clients in Europe a low-cost way to buy, sell and save physically allocated gold and for the first time instantly spend it via the Glint Mastercard anywhere in the world Mastercard is accepted.
Sprott became one of the Glint’s most prominent shareholders, joining a number of investors in the firm's recent private placement in June 2019.
Peter Grosskopf, CEO of Sprott, explains the rationale for Sprott's investment in Glint: “Sprott is committed to being at the forefront of innovation in the gold market by supporting initiatives that make gold quicker, easier and more cost effective to use as a means of paying for goods and services. The Glint Mastercard and its physically-backed storage account are groundbreaking technologies and Sprott is pleased to participate in the launch of Glint.”
A Partnership for the Future of Precious Metals
Sprott Inc. joined APMEX, the world’s largest online bullion coin dealer, in launching OneGold in 2018. OneGold is the first dedicated online platform for investing in digital bullion, offering clients the opportunity to own and manage digital gold and silver in a secure, rapid and efficient environment. VaultChain™ Gold and VaultChain™ Silver are OneGold’s flagship digital precious metals products. Both were developed by Tradewind Markets, a leader in digital asset innovation. VaultChain™ metals products offer highly advanced features and are vaulted at the Royal Canadian Mint.
With a deep understanding of precious metals that is unmatched in any competing partnership, APMEX and Sprott are committed to building OneGold into the best experience for anyone who wants to own precious metals.
Global Payments Meet Digitial Gold
Sprott first invested in Emergent in May 2018. Emergent Technology Holdings is a financial technology company that uses blockchain technology to track the provenance of responsibly sourced gold. Emergent's Responsible Gold™ platform uses blockchain technology to trace the provenance of conflict-free gold from mines, to refineries, and through to vaults. This gold is the foundation of G-Coin™, a digital token backed by responsibly sourced, physical gold. G-Coin tokens are more liquid than traditional assets and less volatile than unbacked cryptocurrencies.
A Digital Solution for the Physical Precious Metals Market
Tradewind has combined world-class exchange technology with a tailored blockchain application to revolutionize the trading, settlement, and ownership of vaulted precious metals. The team at Tradewind Markets believes there is a better way to manage the ownership of gold by using cloud-based technology solutions and blockchain's distributed ledger technology (DLT) to simplify processes, increase transparency, and open up new opportunities.
