Aurum Asset Management

Aurum Asset Management is a UK based company that is on the frontier of bringing real world assets into the digital realm using the blockchain. The founding members of Aurum Asset Management were key management personnel from reputable cryptocurrency projects such as Latoken, Polymath and Cardano. Aurum Asset Management is behind the revolutionary Open Aurum platform, which is responsible for the creation, marketing and listing of the Open Aurum token (GOLD), which will be backed by and pegged to the output from Artisanal Small Gold Mines, as well as the Stable Gold token (GLDS) which is a stable coin linked to the physical gold at 1 token per gram of 99.99 gold.


Gold is a chemical element with symbol Au and atomic number 79, making it one of the higher atomic number elements that occur naturally. It is one of the least reactive chemical elements and is solid under standard conditions. Gold often occurs in free elemental (native) form, as nuggets or grains, in rocks, in veins, and in alluvial deposits.

A relatively rare element, gold is a precious metal that has been used for coinage, jewelry, and other arts throughout recorded history. In the past, a gold standard was often implemented as a monetary policy, and a limited total of 186,700 tons of gold was recorded to exists above ground.

Gold investments are at forefront of many investors' minds during crises, as demonstrated during the 2008–2009 recession, where gold prices hit 1000 dollars per ounce, largely due to people purchasing physical gold or betting on the metal via various investment options, such as ETFs or gold mining companies' stocks.

As does any major economic or political event, gold continues to trend the same way, as seen more recently, in 2016, after the UK vote to leave the EU led gold prices to soar, reflecting the widespread uncertain view of Britain's economic future.

Open Aurum [ GOLD ]

Open Aurum [ GOLD ] is a gold mined backed token which aims to provide financing to Artisanal Small Gold Mines (ASGM) around the world, in exchange a portion of their production. With thousands of tons of gold available for extraction within these mines, financing these neglected production areas leads to immediate wealth creation. Artisanal and Small Gold Mines account for 20% of the annual gold production, even though the quantity of miners far exceeds those of industrial gold miners. With Aurum Asset Management and the introduction of the Open Aurum Token, these mines will have reasonably fair and easy access to credit, allowing them to increase their production and dramatically increase their efficiency. In a mutually beneficial agreement, we give these ASGM miners access to the Aurum Asset management mining division – equipment, skilled labour, knowledge and mechanization.

World’s First Gold Mine Backed Token

Open Aurum Token holders will benefit directly and share in the profitability from the production of Gold at source.

Long Term Growth

As Aurum Asset Management continues to add new mining projects into the platform, projected gold production will continue to increase, leading to increased valuation of the Open Aurum Token


Open Aurum will create liquidity events following production milestones whereby each token holder will receive a dividend payable in physical gold, StableGold (GLDS) or even in Fiat currency.
