Gold community digital currency GGT (Global Gold Token) issued by Goldlinks, the global gold industry blockchain alliance, was officially listed for trading on BitForex, the world’s leading digital currency exchange, on 17 October.

Asia, 17 October: Global gold industry blockchain alliance Goldlinks offered its community members a utility token, Global Gold Token (GGT), trading on Bitforex exchange in Seoul, South Korea on 17 October. The token sale aimed to fund the management of its eco-community, whose members have invested earlier in Goldlinks’ gold-backed digital currency, known as Global Gold Cash (GGC).

Goldlinks held a listing ceremony and a news conference in Seoul in the morning. Attendees at the media event for its gold-backed digital currency came from different parts of the world, including the political and business leaders in South Korea and the financial and blockchain experts from the other parts of Asia. During the meeting, Goldlinks, with a number of prominent Korean enterprises, Asian business groups, and financial institutions, jointly announced a plan to launch the Asian Digital Currency Institution in a bid to promote the research and application of digital currency technology in various commercial and public sectors.

Goldlinks is a digital-asset distribution and trading platform built on the blockchain technology for the global gold industry. Its new token GGT served as a certificate of identification for the Goldlinks community members as well as for performing such functions as to record, manage and distribute the value of its eco-community members, which was reflected by the value of GGC they own. GGT’s initial offering amount was 20 billion tokens, and each year afterwards the Goldlinks Foundation would take out 20 percent of its profits to buy back the tokens until it finally decreased to two billion GGTs.

Such a deflationary mechanism ensures that the number of GGTs in circulation will go down, while its token value will rise, because Goldlinks’ membership value will increase as its gold-backed coin GGC gains wider application in commerce as a means of transaction, making itself an extremely attractive option for investment currency.

Speaking of its recently offered gold-backed Global Gold Cash, a breakthrough in the history of monetary system, Ouyang Yun, CEO of the Goldlinks Foundation Ltd told the press conference in Seoul that just like physical gold, GGC was a transparent, secure and reliable safe-haven asset, because it was issued with 100 percent physical gold reserves as its underlying asset. At present, a hundred GGC coins equal to a gram of physical gold.

“It has a complete and decentralized underlying asset management system. Its underlying assets are overseen by a third-party independent gold custody company, periodically audited by third-party eligible audit institutions, and it strictly complies with KYC (KnowYourCustomer) to ensure the security and transparency of the assets represented by GGC,” said Ouyang.

The natural monetary properties of gold have been the largest value consensus of mankind for 6,000 years. Now, with the rise of digital currency technology, GGC is expected to bring gold’s value back to practical international trade payment, given that it has inherited the scarcity of gold and the value of hedging against general ledger and exchange rate fluctuations.

A South Korean company accepted GGC as the currency of settlement for its international trade business in September, and successfully withdrew from Hong Kong-based Brink’s vault a standard gold bar, Reuters reported earlier. The incident marked for the first time an application of gold-backed digital currency in the complete procedure of international trade settlement from issuance to circulation and payment, a more efficient trade model created thanks to GGC.

Bitcoin Cash Price Gets Skewed due to Exchange Trickery

A lot of confusing action is taking place where the Bitcoin Cash price is concerned. Although its actual decline in value is quite obvious for everyone to see, the real price of BCH is not necessarily what people can see on Coinmarketcap. This is primarily because numerous exchanges treat BCHABC as Bitcoin Cash already despite nothing being decided in terms of which chain will be the longest. Bitcoin Cash Value Fluctuates Heavily Depending on where traders look at, the price of Bitcoin Cash will be either close to the $400 level or down to $250-ish. That is quite a large gap between prices, yet one that is also very easy to explain. Bitcoin Cash, as people knew it before the fork, no longer exists. Most professional exchanges have also retired this price ticker, for the time being. As the hash war rages on, there are still a lot of unknown factors waiting to be addressed. Despite this ongoing kerfuffle, there is a net 5.76% decrease in the Bitcoin Cash price, and a 5.4% decline over Bitcoin. More specifically, that is what CoinMarketCap reports at this time, although this is not necessarily the case whatsoever. In fact, some exchanges are clearly jumping the gun by labeling BCHABC as BCH and thus dragging the Bitcoin Cash price down a bit more. Exchanges currently engaging in this activity include Bittrex and Coinex, neither of which plays a big role of importance when it comes to trading. However, based on the current value of BCH on Bitfinex and Gate.io, it seems a similar incident is taking place. One also has to keep in mind Bitcoin Cash was getting battered ahead of the network split as well. Most exchanges have halted trading of BCH indefinitely, primarily because the currency no longer exists. It is evident either BCHABC or BCHSV will take over that name in the future, but nothing has been decided at this point. As such, any trading referring to just “Bitcoin Cash” or “BCH” should be avoided, as most users can never be sure which currency is effectively being traded under this name. All of this skews the picture pertaining to Bitcoin Cash altogether. Coinmarketcap reports there is still $392m in trading volume for BCH, even though that is virtually impossible right now. With so many exchanges freezing deposits and withdrawals, it is evident actual BCH trading is no longer possible whatsoever. Virtually all platforms have deposits of BCHSV and BCHABC frozen as well, which only makes this market trend more confusing. It is safe to say the entire network split has been a bit of a mess first and foremost. In the case of Bitcoin Cash itself, that name will – under the current circumstances- not be used across exchanges for much longer. Instead, the two separate camps need to be treated as such first and foremost. Until things settle down – with might not necessarily happen anytime soon – the Bitcoin Cash price itself is pretty much irrelevant for most traders and speculators.
