Tokens backed by physical values, better than cryptocurrencies?
The issuance of the token will be ensured by GPF investmentsan international fund specializing in precious metals. According to its managing director, Vladimir Pronskyinvestment in metals is experiencing a high increase :
“The investment attractiveness of the platinum group of metals, and palladium in particular, is confirmed by the growing global demand. Being a precious metal, and in fact an industrial metal, palladium is present in all high-tech productions. The CFA for this metal, in our opinion, seems to be a very promising financial product for investment. »
For Vladimir Potanin, these tokens backed by physical products, such as metals, have enough advantages to be able to relegate cryptocurrencies :
“Unlike cryptocurrencies, ‘industrial’ and other tokens are backed by physical assets, and the use of blockchain technology makes their transactions reliable, convenient and transparent. The token will defeat the cryptocurrency, pushing it to the sidelines of the digital economy. »
The “palladium token” will be backed by the price of the palladium, and in effect becomes a stablecoin backed by the price of a physical product, in the same way as the gold tie (XAUT), for example, although the term stablecoin is not mentioned in the release.
