Digitized Precious Metals on the Ethereum Blockchain: Orocrypt
Gold backed tokens have a pretty bright history in cryptocurrency world. This might be because Gold is similar to cryptocurrencies, an investment oppurtunity for the future. It’s always exciting to see the funding instruments of today’s global finance world merging into blockchain technology. It’s a sign that blockchain technology has finally got the attention of experts in the finance world. Orocrypt, a Panama-based blockchain company, is planning to crowdfund OROC tokens that will represent shares on Orocrypt profits. Orocrypt crowfunding will start on 14th of June and will last for 1 month. Investors will be offered Orocrypt tokens, OROCs. OROC token will be a ECR20 token on Ethereum blockchain.
After the crowdsale Orocrypt will launch ORO.G tokens that are backed by real gold. Each ORO.G token will represent 30 grams of LMBA (http://www.lbma.org.uk) compliant bullion gold. Orocrypt platform will charge %1 fee for the ORO.G tokens and the profits will be shares among OROC holders. So basically, OROC token holders will be able to get profits from the ORO.G token sales that represents physical gold. On top of the %1 fee, there are transfer fees. ORO.G transfer between the wallets will have %0.4 transfer fee. If the sum is lower than 1 ORO.G token, in other words lesser than 30 grams of gold, fee’s will differ. In case the ORO.G amount is between 0.9 to 0.5, 29 grams to 15 grams, the transfer fee will be %5. If the ORO.G transfer is lower than 0.5, 15 grams, the fee will be %10. The Orocrypt tokens will be available to trade through Orocrypt platform as well as other exchanges.
The best part of Orocrypt is that they announced they would be completely transparent. Each and every single assets of the company including client funds and golds will be auditable. This gives more confidence to investors. We have seen blockchain projects backed by precious metals in the past they failed to have a independent audit. The gold that will be represented by ORO.G tokens will be kept in safe storage around to world to ensure minimum risks and low taxes. The selected vaults are Swiss Gold Safe AG’s Zurich and Hong Kong Vault as well as Byzantium’s vault located in the Cayman Islands and OZL AG’s vault in Liechtenstein. Orocrypt want their investors to feel safe and the gold is safely kept by world’s leading vaults. The Swiss and Liechtenstein vaults will be auidited by Societe de Surveillance SA. The bullion gold will be sourced by Rheingold-Edelmetall Liechtenstein and Byzantium Cayman Islands.
