Kinesis Monetary System

Kinesis Monetary System extends Africa Footprint with the South African Jewellers Network.

The tumultuous backdrop of the volatile financial markets has seen commodities such as precious metals steal the limelight recently – particularly gold. According the a recent report by the World Gold Council, central bank demand for gold was 651.5t in 2018, an increase of 74% from 374.8t in 2017, hitting a record-breaking half century high of gold purchased by central banks, the largest increase since the US’s decision to end the dollar’s peg to bullion in 1971.

This renewed interest in gold is due to the perfect storm of political tensions, trade wars, increasing global debt and economic downturns, fuelling the need for individuals, institutions and central banks to diversify their investment portfolios. Countries across the world are turning their backs on the US dollar as a reliable means of reserve, exemplified by the Russian central bank which sold almost all of its US dollars to purchase 274.3t of Gold in 2018.

Following its annual report, the Director of Investment Research at the World Gold Council has announced central banks’ appetite for gold is here to stay. These official purchases are expected to provide a stable base for the gold market long-term, but how can the full commercial potential of the booming gold industry be unlocked?

The answer is simple – Digital Assets and Blockchain Technology.

Kinesis: The Digital Evolution of the Monetary Standard

The Kinesis Monetary System is an award-winning physical asset-based monetary system utilizing blockchain technology, that also incorporates a fee-sharing yield on traditionally non-revenue bearing assets; precious metals. Kinesis has the advantage of experience in the precious metals market, as well as having significant technology development already completed. It also comes after 2018 saw gold outperform many global equity markets and currencies, attracting renewed interest in the precious metal.

The Kinesis Monetary System is based on 1:1 allocated physical gold and silver, powered by the Kinesis Blockchain Network and the world-leading Allocated Bullion Exchange infrastructure.

KAU (Gold) and KAG (Silver) are the Kinesis Monetary System digital asset currencies.

Digital Gold Currency (KAU)

Description: 1 fine gram physical gold digital token, consisting of gold cast bars of minimum fineness of 999, and bearing a serial number and identifying stamp of a refiner as per ABX Quality Assurance Framework, table of Approved Refiner List.

Digital Silver Currency (KAG)

Description: 1 oz physical silver digital token, consisting of silver cast bars of a minimum fineness of 999, and bearing an identifying stamp of a refiner as per ABX Quality Assurance Framework, table of Approved Refiner List.

Kinesis Monetary System participants hold full title ownership of allocated gold or silver to their KAU (gold) and KAG (silver) digital asset currencies.

Kinesis has developed a multifaceted fee-sharing yield system that is specifically designed to attract institutional and retail capital and incentivise use and velocity of the currency suite. Users are financially rewarded based on their participation and the overall velocity (rate that money changes hands) of the Kinesis digital asset currencies. This revolutionary unique yield is derived purely from economic output rather than debt, unlike fiat currency with fractional reserve banking. The unique yield system encourages adoption and stimulate use and economic value to participants.

When KAU and KAG are transferred between holders the network collects a 0.45% fee that is then accumulated and distributed monthly, in varying proportions, to participants in the Kinesis Monetary System as a ‘yield’.

» Minter Yield: Minters receive a proportional 5% share of the transaction fees on the Kinesis coins they create and then use. Minting is the process of converting fiat currency or physical bullion holdings into KAU and KAG coins; this is done in the Kinesis Mint.

» Depositors Yield: Kinesis depositors will receive a 5% share of transaction fees on their initial deposit and then use of Kinesis coins.

» Holder Yield: Kinesis holders receive a 15% share of the transaction fees generated over the Kinesis Monetary System while holding the currencies, calculated on a daily basis and credited to their e-Wallets monthly.

» Recruiter Yield: The recruiter yield rewards people or corporations who refer new users to Kinesis. A Kinesis recruiter will receive a proportional 7.5% yield on active Kinesis Wallets.
