This comprehensive monetary system encompasses (1) the Kinesis currencies, which can be sent and received via the Kinesis eWallet, (2) the Kinesis Blockchain Exchange, providing liquidity for the Kinesis currencies and other cryptocurrencies and (3) the Kinesis debit card, allowing for instant conversion of KAU and KAG into fiat currency anywhere in the world where Visa/Mastercard is accepted.
Holders of the Kinesis currencies have allocated legal title to the underlying physical bullion holdings so that they can exchange their currencies for physical gold and silver if they wish, subject to a minimum withdrawal amount.
Dramatic currency volatility is a cause of concern around the world – stabilising the Turkish lira is like ‘catching a falling knife’. The move away from the gold standard around the world has left people at the mercy of central banking policies.
Your ownership of the gold is then digitised using blockchain technology, meaning you can hold or transfer your currency from the Kinesis digital wallet, spend the currencies easily using a debit card anywhere Visa/Mastercard is accepted, or trade them on them on the Kinesis Blockchain Exchange. Your holding can even be transferred back to physical gold or silver.
The Kinesis currencies offer a unique yield system to encourage adoption and stimulate use. When KAU and KAG are transferred between holders the network collects a 0.45% fee that is then accumulated and distributed monthly, in varying proportions, to participants in the Kinesis Monetary System as a ‘yield’.
Kinesis was founded by the Allocated Bullion Exchange (ABX); meaning it already has extensive infrastructure and fully operational exchange technology for the trade and storage of physical bullion in 7 locations around the world. It is in this context that a leading online institutional exchange for trading physical gold has created a new monetary system with a digital currency based 1:1 on allocated physical gold and silver.
This is the first time that allocated gold ownership has delivered this kind of non-debt-based yield, so Kinesis have a lot of interest from the $15trillion gold trading industry.
This initiative was founded by ABX, a leading online exchange platform for physical bullion, with deep expertise in the gold industry. ABX is integrated with Deutsche Borse’s clearing house and already has extensive infrastructure and fully operational exchange technology for trade and storage of physical bullion in 7 locations around the world.
Last but not least one of the most exciting pieces of the Kinesis currency suite, the Kinesis Blockchain Exchange (KBE). This is our own exchange platform allowing users to buy and sell cryptocurrencies against Kinesis currencies, creating easy exchange for cryptocurrencies. From Bitcoin (BTC) to Kinesis Gold (KAU) or Kinesis Velocity Tokens (KVT) to Ethereum, the KBE eliminates the need for third party exchanges. This is not the first time we have built an exchange; through ABX we have developed MetalDesk, an allocated precious metals exchange used across the world by many of the largest physical precious metal trading houses., Kinesis leverages this experience and infrastructure to provide a world class service.
No need for complex byzantine systems of the past for managing our finances. Using the Kinesis Monetary System users will be able to make purchases, both large and small, pay bills with ease and even manage international payments with lower transfer rates offered by banks and other international payment services.
Bringing back a truly decentralized, digitalized asset, based on blockchain technology.
How is an Initial Token Offering (ITO) different from an Initial Coin Offering (ICO)?
The Kinesis Velocity Token (KVT) is a utility token and isn’t an asset-based currency. This is what is currently in public sale in the ITO that is running until November 11th, 2018.
Kinesis announces successfully sold over 55,000 KVTs, raising over $50 million just in the pre-sale period, already significantly over the $18.6 million average raised per ITO in the last year.
KVTs reward participants proportionately to the growth of Kinesis Monetary System, meaning early adopters can stake a claim to an entire monetary system. KVTs are limited to 300,000 only, without a chance of future dilution.
Holders of the KVT tokens will receive a passive 20% proportional return on the transaction fees accumulated from the Kinesis Monetary System. This creates an additional, passive form of potential return for token holders on top of the value of the token itself.
The ICO references the Kinesis currency suite being launched in November 2018. This includes the KAU (gold-based) and KAG (silver-based) currencies. KAU and KAG are minted into existence as a 1:1 representation of allocated physical precious metals which underpin the cryptocurrencies.
For example, 1g gold equals 1 KAU and 10g silver per 1 KAG. You simply deposit USD or physical gold or silver into the Kinesis primary market and you are able to mint that Kinesis currency, USD, gold or silver into KAU or KAG. It is then displayed in your e-wallet available to be spent or transferred. We have even created a Kinesis debit card that can be used anywhere Visa and Mastercard is accepted.
Our target markets:
Differentiating Kinesis from many of the other gold-backed cryptocurrencies:
Kinesis is a full-circle monetary system made-up of all the elements and functions required for a successful and effective monetary system. The Kinesis Monetary System involves the following revolutionary concepts:
Kinesis has also introduced the Kinesis debit card, allowing for the instant sale of Kinesis currencies loaded within the eWallet at the point of purchase.
We have developed a proprietary fork of the Stellar blockchain for these currencies, resulting in extremely fast transaction speeds and scalable global use for the Kinesis
