About Aurus

AurusGOLD (AWG) is a 100% gold-backed token on the Ethereum blockchain, minted by a semi-decentralized network of esteemed gold traders as a stable, highly-liquid, global digital asset. Each AWG token is fully collateralized by, and redeemable for 1 gram of 99.99% LBMA certified gold, stored in partnered, fully-audited vaults. 

Features

Aurus circulates a second digital asset, AurusCOIN (AWX), a revenue-sharing token limited to a total supply of 30,000,000 units. AWX derives the revenue generated from the products within the Aurus Ecosystem, as 70% of the generated revenue from the usage of AWG is allocated and proportionally distributed across AWX token holders (paid in AWG). 

The remaining 30% is distributed amongst the participants of the Aurus Ecosystem (15% to gold providers and 15% to vault partners), working as a incentive for them to participate in the ecosystem and collaborate towards the usage of AWG.

Aurus Interviews

JELLE RIJNINK
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
I'm Marketing Director at Aurus - Making gold as easy as money. I'm in charge for all marketing activities of the project.
What do you think about idea?
The Aurus project is simply revolutionary. We are using blockchain technology to bring gold to the digital age of payments. It's the evolutionary next step in monetary systems.
FRANCISCO LEYTON
As a team member, сan you tell us about your role in the ICO project?
My main mission in Aurus is to lead the expansion of the company within Latin America and other Spanish-speaking countries. My efforts are set towards onboarding new gold providers and distributors to the Aurus Ecosystem, while driving AWG adoption.
What do you think about idea?
The business model of Aurus is unique, it enables entities from the traditional gold market to jump into the digital space through a friendly technological solution. A decentralized and collaborative network of gold providers, vaults and distributors is being created, and together they bring a gold-backed (AurusGOLD) token to life.
Players from the ecosystem have an incentive to tokenize and trade AurusGOLD, as they receive 30% of the revenues generated from transaction fees of AurusGOLD.
People and investors can join this ecosystem by purchasing AurusCOIN, a revenue-sharing token which distributes 70% of the revenues generated from AWG usage. So almost everyone can participate in the ecosystem but also benefit from it.
