They focus on allocated gold with their customers tied to XAU for the value of their holdings.
He explains the advantages of using Hashgraph technology to build a platform that allows for auditing and then optionally coupling it with a token or representation of wealth. He discusses some of the risks with crypto and severe concerns regarding Tether.
