Five precious metals dealers working with SEMPSA JP are selling tGOLD and tSILVER tokens to the broader retail market via their e-commerce stores. The refinery has tokenized an initial allotment of three kilos of gold and 25 kilos of silver bullions using the Aurus blockchain protocol.
Aurus is a decentralized global software platform that facilitates the tokenization of precious metals on the blockchain. tGOLD and tSILVER tokens are each backed by one gram of 99.99% gold and 99.9% silver, respectively.
Free of recurring storage fees, Aurus tokens offer investors a convenient and affordable alternative to physical bullions, with the additional benefits of instant settlements and real-time 24/7 trading from any mobile device.
tGOLD and tSILVER are now available at the following bullion dealers.
- Andorrano Joyería (Barcelona, Bilbao)
- CIODE (Madrid)
- InverMoneda (Málaga, Cádiz, Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla)
- Oro Express (Madrid)
- Oro Hispánica (Madrid)
All five bullion dealers offer physical redemption services, enabling customers to redeem tGOLD and tSILVER tokens for physical precious metal bars and coins at any time.
tGOLD and tSILVER tokens are now available here.
