Bringing back Gold as an Everyday Currency

Kinesis Money – We are not a bank.

Kinesis is a monetary system based on the traditionally stable commodities, gold and silver.


Kinesis users can instantly spend their precious metals holdings at point of sale anywhere in the world with the Kinesis debit card or transfer directly over the blockchain, opening up cross border payments with low transaction fees. Unlike other gold and silver backed cryptocurrencies, Kinesis currencies are divisible digital units of physical gold and silver, using the blockchain as a medium of exchange and a registry of ownership.

Holders of the Kinesis currencies have allocated legal title to the underlying physical bullion holdings, eliminating counter-party risk and allowing for physical redemption directly from one of seven Kinesis vaulting providers.

Learn the benefits of both to determine which is more lucrative for investors.
