Troygold Is A Fintech That Digitises Gold Bullion. In ancient times, one ounce of gold held the purchasing power to feed a family of four for a month. Gold continues to hold this exact value today. In a world where wealth is continuously devalued by debt-based paper financial systems, Troygold liberates purchasing power, putting real gold in their client’s pocket.
Growing up, brothers Bastiat and Dane were instilled with the principles of free-market economics and the virtues of sound money, reading the likes of Mises, Hayek and Rothbard. Their experiences in New York, and having seen both the wealth erosion and societal ills that money printing brought to their native surroundings, set them on a mission to create a platform that would change the way in which it secures its wealth.
After brief stints in investment banking, they set out on a journey into gold. They created a successful gold mining business in the goldfields of South Africa; learning about the metal from rockface to market. In 2018, they launched Troygold with a single premise in mind: gold is money. Their greatest undertaking is still to find a way for individuals to store their wealth outside of a system that continuously erodes their wealth.
The company seeks to create the future. It believes in pushing the boundaries by always finding new ways of overcoming seemingly impossible obstacles. Change is constant, the ability to stay flexible and open to change is a non-negotiable as it stays resilient and it is never complacent. The company believes what is broken can be fixed, and that it has a mandate to play an active role in restoring failed systems, processes and paradigms.
