Sprott Digital Precious Metals U.S. VaultChain™ Gold Accounts

Sprott Digital Precious Metals U.S. Inc. offers a change of pace in ownership of gold by using the blockchain technology underpinning cryptocurrencies and integrating it with the value of investing in precious metals. 

We believe that providing gold with a blockchain platform will revolutionize the trading, settlement, and ownership of vaulted precious metals.

VaultChain™ Gold

VaultChain Gold is a convenient and cost-efficient way to buy, hold and easily trade gold via an electronic platform, while the gold is being held at the world-class storage facilities of the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM). VaultChain Gold represents investment grade physical gold and is not a security, derivative, future or other financial contract. 

VaultChain Gold leverages the custody and settlement attributes of blockchain technology to validate your physical gold holdings. By storing the gold at the Royal Canadian Mint and using the VaultChain Distributed Ledger as the final and authoritative proof of title to the ounces of gold, owners are able to eliminate the layers of expenses in owning physical gold. 

Ownership Validated via Blockchain Distributed Ledger

You own 100% backed fine gold, with the RCM acting solely as sub-custodian. Your gold allocation is validated using a blockchain distributed ledger that ensures data accuracy, real-time tracking and transparent auditability. VaultChain Gold uses a permissioned distributed ledger limiting access to the database to authorized participants. 

In its simplest form, a "distributed ledger" is a database updated by independent participants in a large network. Its dynamic form goes beyond simple ledger functionalities, as it does not rely on a central authority to manage the system. Transactions are validated through a set of contracts by independent nodes, thereby preventing unauthorized or counterfeit entries, double-spends and chargebacks, creating a secure and immutable record of ownership.

Investing in gold has its advantages but also bears a risk of loss with its volatile price changes. It is NOT insured by the FDIC or any other governmental agency. The funds you deposit with a Trading or Custodial Participant, a firm authorized to settle transactions executed on the Tradewind Platform, for trading in the TWM Program are not protected by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation even if the Trading or Custodial Participant or its affiliates are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as a broker or dealer. Investors should seek financial advice regarding the suitability of any investment strategy based on the objectives of the investor, financial situation, investment horizon, and their particular needs. Carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your circumstances and financial resources. Generally, natural resources investments are more volatile on a daily basis and have higher headline risk than other sectors as they tend to be more sensitive to economic data, political and regulatory events as well as underlying commodity prices. Past performance is no guarantee of future returns
