Tether Gold (XAU₮) is a token that provides you ownership of real physical gold, designed for the 21st century. By putting gold on a Blockchain, we unlock a variety of characteristics that typically only crypto assets possess. XAU₮ is backed 1:1 by physical gold held in the most secure vaults in Switzerland.
Tether Gold is like gold, but easier.
Easy to Transport
Transporting physical gold is challenging, however, transporting your XAU₮ tokens is as easy as taking your other crypto-assets with you, whenever you need to.
It’s difficult to split up your physical gold bars. However, XAU₮ tokens are divisible into increments as small as 0.000001 fine troy ounce of gold.
Easy To Trade 24/7
Trading physical gold limits you to your location and trading hours. XAU₮ tokens, however, can be traded 24/7, 365 days a year from anywhere in the world on exchanges that list XAU₮ tokens.
Easy To Redeem
Should you ever want to redeem your XAU₮ tokens for physical gold*, you can. We deliver physical gold bars to any address in Switzerland.
*Important: Tether Gold (XAU₮) can only be redeemed in minimum increments of one full gold bar. We normally advise that you deposit 430 XAU₮ tokens to ensure you have enough to redeem a full bar of gold. Our bars of gold (like all LBMA bars of gold) vary in size and can be as big as 430 fine troy ounces.
Easy To Store
Storing your physical gold can be expensive and can expose you to geopolitical risks. Storing your XAU₮ tokens is as easy as storing your other crypto assets.
All physical gold that backs XAU₮ tokens can be tracked on our website. At any point in time, you can verify your gold allocation in our vaults.
