Once again, thank you to all of you who responded to our recent lifestyle survey – this helps us to better understand our clients, what you want from Glint and how we can further improve our products and transform the future of money.

Here are some of the most interesting findings around how you spend and save in gold.

A huge 91% of you told us that you saved real gold through Glint – the majority of you saving up to $500 per month.

Over half of you combine your gold holding with cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin and Ethereum being the most popular assets). In addition, 71% have invested in stocks and shares alongside gold.

Interestingly, 22% of respondents used glint to spend in their local currency – is this more proof that many of us are increasingly turning our backs on the banking system?

What do you spend your gold on? 54% of you paid in gold whilst eating or drinking out whilst 23% of those who responded to our survey had used gold to pay for fuel and groceries.

Finally, it’s interesting to see that just 18% of respondents spend cash whilst abroad. A quarter of you instead opt to spend on your credit card – this is where one of the key benefits of Glint comes into its own. Our FX fees are up to six times cheaper than banks so you can save a huge amount on currency conversion fees whilst abroad by spending in gold or other currencies on your Glint card this summer.
