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 just, sustainable and inclusive global economy

How and why is Glint special?

Glint is re-introducing gold as money as a global currency so that it can be used in electronic payments in real-time. Glint clients can buy any amount of gold. They can then save, exchange or spend their gold with the Glint Mastercard.

Innovative Payment Technology

  • Glint has developed and utilized a highly scalable and secure micro-services technology architecture to deliver a landmark liquidity for gold payments. Glint provides unprecedented liquidity by enabling physical gold to be settled at the point of electronic transaction.

Reliable & Independent

  • Physically allocated gold is the most reliable store of value – and now Glint allows you to spend it. Through our innovative app, Mastercard and banking integration, you can use gold as money in every sense of the word. We’re taking gold out of the vaults and empowering you to spend it whenever you want.
  • Our near-term vision, which is fully underway, is the creation of a gold banking service and payment business, both integrated with and independent of existing payment networks.

Fair & Transparent fees

  • Transferring currencies can be complicated, as well as expensive and many companies aren’t entirely transparent about the fees they charge. Glint lets you transfer funds instantly, opening possibilities wherever you go. It’s hassle-free, and ensures you don’t get stung by hidden fees.

Choice and Control

  • As you can both store and spend gold alongside international currencies, you attain a unique choice as well as an additional level of control and protection over your money.
  • Glint gives you control by letting you independently store and manage your wealth outside the banking system. You can transfer money to pay bills or send funds to friends without it ever going near a bank, and there’s no reliance on government currency.

Security & Trust

  • Glint is regulated and fully authorised by the FCA. Using the latest technology, we have bank level security, which is independently tested and audited. Your money is safeguarded in segregated client accounts and your physical gold in one of the largest, most secure, independent and insured vaults in Switzerland. You’ll also get instant in-app records of your transactions to help you keep track of your spending, to help you stay safe from fraud. And if you suspect any fraud you can block (and unblock) your card directly in the app.
