The potential of Vaultoro to bring an innovative solution

Techstars saw the potential of Vaultoro to bring an innovative solution to the market by mixing the oldest form of money and gold with Bitcoin, which is often proclaimed Gold 2.0. Especially given that Gold and Bitcoin markets behave similarly.

Vaultoro’s solution combines a globally recognized store of value with the speed, transparency, and divisibility of the Bitcoin Blockchain.

Scigala says:

“Programmable digital currencies not controlled by companies or governments are one of the most interesting developments in computer science since the invention of the Internet itself. Bitcoin is getting stronger every day and our implementation makes gold relevant again as a global currency.”

Vaultoro has over 4,000 clients from 92 countries that hold over 1.8 mln Euros worth of Bitcoin and Gold through the platform. Having joined Techstars, Vaultoro is planning to extend their platform through the integration of the Euro offering a physical gold backed VISA debit card and creating banking app.
