The Key to a Global Currency.
WHY WE’RE DIFFERENT
At a time of extraordinary monetary policy and when trust in currencies, banks and existing payment systems has been eroded, Glint helps us move to a more stable global economy. Glint is bringing reliability, independence, choice and control to clients, by reintroducing the most universally trusted form of money, Gold.
The Glint card is accepted by tens of millions of merchants and over 2 million ATMs, in more than 210 countries and territories.
We Want To Make Money Fairer
We feel it is unfair that money is prone to depreciate in ways we have no control over. At Glint, we believe the ready-made solution has existed for Millennia, but, until now, it just hadn’t caught up with modern life – that solution is gold.
Glint is privileged to be backed by a world-class group of investors who believe in our mission to redefine money and to make it fairer for everyone. Our individual professional investors are complemented by a number of well-established institutions, notably:
Fortune 500 company
Investing in disruptive technology
The prominent Asian commodity exchange
