- We believe that gold is and always has been the ultimate store of value on Earth.
We believe that the prices of all things fluctuate relative to the price of gold and not relative to some other currency, and that the true way to evaluate prices and measure financial returns is to price them in gold.
We believe that gold is intrinsically tied to individual economic freedom as wonderfully outlined in the classic 1966 essay Gold and Economic Freedom and in Dr. Ron Paul's 1982 book The Case for Gold.
We believe that many of the problems of the past century, including poverty, war, maldistribution of wealth, and environmental degradation, were at least partially caused by humanity's decision to move away from the Gold Standard and onto a system of paper money. We believe that gold is the great balancing force which can help to bring the other forces of the world back into equilibrium.
We believe that gold is a very special and rare element of the universe, created through the collision of neutron stars, and we believe that gold will have many practical uses in future human technologies including nanotechnologies. At the same time we believe that humanity should be extremely careful venturing into the world of nanotechnology, and we believe that there are just as many major risks as there are potential benefits.
We believe that there is an “accessibility problem” in existing gold markets whereby a great number of the individuals of the world do not have the means or knowledge to trade and hold small amounts of physical gold. At 2017 prices, a single gold coin is worth more than the yearly income of at least ½ of the world’s population. (source)
We believe in sustainable gold mining using new technologies and adhering to practices that minimize impact to the environment and to local populations in mining areas.
We believe in the rights of local indigenous populations in gold mining areas, such as the people of Bougainville Island and the Dayak people of West Borneo, to profit from their mineral wealth in a fair way and not only to act as a labor pool for large mining companies.
We believe that new cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies brilliantly solve many fundamental problems inherent to the smooth, fair, and efficient processing of financial transactions, and we believe that such technologies are poised to disrupt and remake the global financial system with an impact at least as great as the invention of the Internet itself.
We believe that in the very near future cryptocurrency transactions will be as common as credit card transactions are today, and that consumers will begin using cryptocurrencies to buy all manner of goods both online and offline.
We believe that the crucial missing link between the traditional economy and the new crypto economy, the route to restoring gold to its proper status as humanity's primary store of value, and the eventual key to restoring balance to the world, is a sovereign gold-backed cryptocurrency.
