We intend to fully back-up AurumCoin (AU) with pure gold, in the future, when the coin value will reach the destination:
1AU = 1 OZ (pure gold 24K) using market makers.
AurumCoin (AU) is a distributed cryptocurrency, has its own blockchain since 2014 and only 300,000 coins can be mined, so gold-backed cryptocurrency is possible. We are not related to any new ico based on ethereum.
The first few who invested in Bitcoin made an excellent investment. Now you have the chance to be one of the first investors in AurumCoin. Investing now can make a change, and a profit for you in the process.
AurumCoin – One World One Coin
Gold (“Aurum” in Latin) is the base of the economy as we know it today, and furthermore, gold was the measure by which currencies were valued throughout history. AurumCoin was created to unite the world around one coin that combines innovative technology like that of Bitcoin, the global tradability of the dollar, and the consistent, timeless value of gold. AurumCoin poses a legitimate and unaffiliated alternative to existing currencies and intends to provide a stabilizing force in today’s monetary system. This solution’s principles are to be reliable, tradable, and legal. As an international currency, you can pay and receive money easily and safely, anywhere, anytime via any device.
Your Money is Backed Up in Gold
AurumCoin is a modern, cutting-edge digital coin that works according to the gold standard monetary system. This means that each AurumCoin is backed up in solid gold.
Since AurumCoin is backed by gold, it stands out from other currencies. Gold is a natural element with a finite amount and cannot be created out of thin air like the dollar today. Nor is it mere speculation like Bitcoin, which is prone to instability due to lack of inner value. AurumCoin is immune to inflation, and since it is globally unaffiliated, it does not work in the interests of any one single country.
AurumCoin emphasizes limited and minor conversion fees, unlike the exorbitant amounts imposed on the public by banks today. Your participation, and widespread AurumCoin usage, will reduce the need for conversion fees. AurumCoin is the perfect digital currency for online purchases and international transactions, and plans on working with all standard payment systems, such as PayPal, Google Wallet, credit cards, etc.
AurumCoin – A Digital Way to Pay with Gold
When you buy an AurumCoin you actually buy a digital proof for pure gold that will be stored and insured in professional high-security gold vaults in Zurich, London, New York, Toronto, Singapore, Dubai and Hong Kong.
Because AurumCoin is based on the gold standard, it contains built-in mechanisms for market and economic stability. In order to preserve its value, we will use market makers to back up each AurumCoin in pure gold, AurumCoin’s par value will always be worth agreed amount of pure gold.
Each AurumCoin will be backed by gold, and a series of actual 24ct gold coins will be produced so that you can withdraw your money like any other currency. Each coin will represent one digital AurumCoin, just like each dollar you withdraw from the ATM represents one digital dollar in your bank account. In the future, you will be able to deposit AurumCoins into your AurumCoin account.

What is AurumCoin and how does it work?
AurumCoin (Aurum = gold in Latin) is the first distributed open source cryptocurrency to be backed by gold according to the monetary gold standard system, the method by which the dollar operated in the past. Users will be able to purchase with AurumCoin or convert it to any other currency, via third parties, similar to the way that Bitcoin works. Purchasing and using AurumCoin will always be easy, safe, and legal.
What exactly is the gold standard again and why is it important?
The gold standard is the original monetary system whereby currencies were backed up in gold by a certain ratio by the state. Because the amount of gold is finite, it cannot be created out of thin air like the dollar today. President Nixon cancelled the link between the dollar and gold in 1971, an event known as the “Nixon Shock“.
What is digital currency? Is that something like PayPal?
No, PayPal is an online payments system. The majority of the currency in use in today’s economy is digital currency. Printed money is only the face of the money. However, when you say digital currency, most people think of the new, computer-only cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin is one example, although it has no intrinsic value.
Why do we need a new currency?
Why should I use Aurum Coin? I already invest in dollars (or alternatively, my national currency).
AurumCoin will enable you to enjoy the benefits of gold and hold gold in “liquid” form, as an everyday currency. As mentioned before, since 1971, dollars are not connected to gold. That is why regular currency loses value, is prone to fluctuation and causes inflation. If you want to ensure the value of your money, you should also hold AurumCoins as part of your investments.
What do you mean by “liquefying” gold?
With AurumCoin, you will be able to pay any amount no matter how precise, such as 0.88$ or 5.99€. This is called “paying with a fraction of gold”.
Why is AurumCoin backed by a ratio of 0.75: 1 and not 1: 1?
AurumCoin will be 1:1 backed-up
Since Indiegogo paused our campaign (although previously approved), we intend to fully back-up AurumCoin (AU) with pure gold, in the future, when the coin value will reach the destination: 1AU = 1OZ (pure gold 24K) using market makers.
Who is the team behind this project?
AurumCoin was created by a veteran team of economists and technology experts with the intent on leading to positive global change.
We are obligated to operate legally and therefore we cannot reveal ourselves at this point. The operation will be located in a country that allows this project to operate completely legally.
What happens if the project fails?
Since the currency has internal value due to the gold standard it can’t “collapse”. The physical gold that backs up AurumCoin will be owned solely by the customers. It is illegal by any additional parties to use it. In the worst case, the backing gold will be sold, and the money returned to the customers, each according to his purchases.
In which countries will people use Aurum Coin?
AurumCoin is about preserving the value of your money and reduce exchange fees.
With your help, we can bring gold back as a worldwide currency.
How do I purchase an AurumCoin?
You can buy aurumcoins from either exchanges, or directly from other people via marketplaces.
Where can I download the latest AurumCoin (AU) Wallet?
The market needs a trustworthy and legitimate currency that can lead to positive change. As a gold-backed currency with inner value, AurumCoin poses an international and unaffiliated alternative to existing currency and to the monetary regime. The result of careful planning and preparation, AurumCoin is designed to be reliable and tradable. AurumCoin is committed to ensuring that all operations – such as customer service and the currency management mechanism – will operate under the principles of simplicity, transparency, and fairness. We need your cooperation in spreading the word and supporting AurumCoin. A small investment will go a long way in leading to positive global change!
