a VaultChain™ Gold account combines the security of blockchain custody with the ease and efficiency of digital trading and settlement.
Lets Talk About What VaultChain Gold Is
What Is The Tradewind Platform?
The Tradewind Platform is an electronic market (ECN) and private blockchain technology solution that aims to connect market participants and enable them to trade, settle and manage ownership of precious metals, beginning with VaultChain™ Gold accounts.
What Are The Benefits Of Blockchain Technology?
The VaultChain™ blockchain creates an immutable record of transactions and account balances using cryptography, meaning the records are tamper-proof through time. Transactions must be cryptographically signed by platform participants to prove their authenticity, including registration of investment grade physical gold that underlies the platform, which must be cryptographically signed by the Royal Canadian Mint.
What Are The Benefits Of The ECN?
The Tradewind electronic market (ECN) is powered by world-class exchange technology. The ECN accepts orders and matches trades for gold vs. fiat currencies, and disseminates market data for executable bids and offers. The VaultChain™ Gold leg of trades must be settled on the blockchain backed by physical gold at RCM. Buyers and sellers trade and settle with each other directly on a bi-lateral credit basis managed by the ECN’s integrated credit engine; Tradewind is strictly a technology provider and does not act as agent or principal in market transactions.
How Is A VaultChain™ Gold Account Different From A Gold ETF?
Each unit of an ETF is a security that represents equity ownership in a fund or trust that in turn holds physical gold with a bank or other depository. The fund or trust charges owners an annual fee to cover management, storage, marketing and administrative costs. Final beneficial owners do not directly own the underlying physical assets held by the fund/trust and in most circumstances cannot take physical delivery of those assets. With a VaultChain™ Gold account physical gold is owned directly by the final beneficiary, whose holdings are stored on a bailor-bailee basis with RCM and recorded in Tradewind’s VaultChain™ blockchain database; there is no trust or fund wrapper, which eliminates the associated management and administrative fees. The underlying assets are deliverable at the request of the final beneficiary(ies) through participating dealers.***

Is VaultChain™ Gold A Cryptocurrency?
No. VaultChain™ Gold accounts are enabled by similar elements of cryptography and blockchain technology that underpins Bitcoin and other decentralized cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ether are purely digital assets that exist solely in their respective blockchain protocols and may become worthless if their underpinning protocol loses favor or fails to live up to expectations, analogous to owning a collection of Betamax format videos when that standard lost to VHS. Gold in Vaultchain™ Gold accounts is backed by real-world hard assets that are stored in a world-class vault, and exists completely independent of the protocol. The ultimate recourse for holders of Vaultchain™ Gold accounts is metal in a vault that can be delivered, sold, or stored.
What if I already invest in Bitcoin?
VaultChain™ Gold enables investors to acquire a complimentary asset to Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency that utilizes blockchain technology.
