IPMB The Future of Gold: Bridging a Traditional Asset with Cryptocurrency
In the annals of human history, gold has always been revered for its intrinsic value and economic resilience. From ancient civilizations to modern economies, gold has been a symbol of wealth, power, and stability. However, the traditional ownership of gold has always been fraught with challenges, from security concerns to liquidity issues. But as the world of digital assets grows ever more popular, blockchain technology is set to redefine the way we as a globe perceive and interact with this precious metal.
The Digital Evolution of Gold
International Precious Metals Ltd (IPM Ltd) is at the forefront of this transformation. By leveraging the power of blockchain, IPM Ltd aims to integrate transparency, security, and traceability into the gold value chain. Creating a seamless bridge between cryptocurrencies, fiat money, and tangible gold.
The company’s commitment to ethical sourcing is evident in its direct acquisition of unrefined gold from mines that adhere to the stringent labour and ecological standards set by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Furthermore, with our excellent relationships with our refiners, we ensure all of our bars are investment-grade gold. All 1kg bars boast a purity of 99.99%, while the larger 12.5kg bars meet exchange standards like those of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or the LBMA, with a purity of 99.5%. Additionally, we further manufacture with the same compliant gold, 10-gram, 20-gram, 24-gram and 32-gram, 24-carat gold coins meeting investment standards, that may be acquired with IPMB tokens. Each bar and coin is registered with a unique serial number stamped by our refiner. This offers detailed insights into the casting date, location, responsible party, and the gold source linked to each bar or coin.
The Two-Token Model
IPM Ltd introduces an innovative two-token system that promises to revolutionise gold ownership. Introducing IPMB Tokens and GeM NFTs.
GeM NFTs (Globally exchanged Metals): These are non-fungible tokens, each representing 1 gram of securely vaulted gold. They can be traded, staked, or even converted into physical gold after a certain period. GeMs can be purchased for a discounted rate exclusively through staking IPMB tokens.
IPMB tokens (International Precious Metals Bullion): These utility tokens can be used to purchase GeM tokens at discounted rates. Each IPMB token indirectly represents 1 gram of gold, allowing IPMB’s price to diverge from the price of gold according to macroeconomic factors as well as the additional utility of the IPMB token.
This allows the IPMB ecosystem to be attractive to both institutional and retail investors.
The Advantages of Owning Tokenised Gold with IPMB and GeMs
The benefits of this digital approach to gold ownership are plentiful:
Utility: IPMB offers investors a groundbreaking discount on physical gold when purchasing GeMs through the process of staking IPMB, along with the aim to also offer discounts on household and luxury products from multiple industries across the globe in the future.
Transparency and Traceability: Every gram of gold in the system can be traced back to its source, ensuring ethical sourcing and processing.
Cost Covered: All of the costs of owning tangible gold are covered by IPM Ltd such as insurance and storage.
Flexibility: Investors have the option to trade their tokens or convert them into physical gold, offering both liquidity and tangible ownership.
Security: The integration of blockchain technology ensures that transactions are secure, transparent, and tamper-proof.
The fusion of traditional gold with modern blockchain technology offers a promising avenue for all types of investors. It combines the stability and intrinsic value of gold with the flexibility and security of digital assets. As the world continues to embrace digital transformation, initiatives like those of IPM Ltd are set to redefine the landscape of asset ownership and investment all around the world.
