黄金供应链也要开始采用区块链技术了

近日,美国金融科技公司Emergent Technology Holdings表示,该公司希望在今年上半年使用区块链技术对黄金供应链进行数字编码。

通过数字记录黄金供应链的每个阶段,Emergent希望能够保证每块黄金的出处及纯度。

具体落实过程中,Emergent Technology将与纽约证券交易所上市的Yamana Gold合作创建以黄金背书的“g-coins”,一枚g-coins据称相当于一克负责任采购的黄金,并与黄金的现货价格挂钩。作为基于区块链的资产,每个硬币都是可以用于投资、财富转移和支付的数字证书。

这并不是在追踪区块链领黄金中的唯一尝试,但该公司表示,其方法与其他人目前所采用的方法“根本不同”,部分原因是其领域范围内专注于“负责任地采购黄金”。

Emergent表示,像Yamana这样的机构能够使用移动应用程序扫描“智能芯片的防篡改封条,并记录托管金和其他在责任黄金区块链上传输的数据。以上描述中的每个步骤都被记录下来,并且是公开可见的。

该公司有关负责人表示,由此产生的数字代币的流动性和信赖性将得到进一步加强,并可以在全球范围进行交易。

 

 

Physical gold is coming to the digital gold rush known as blockchain technology — and one company is working to ensure that it's responsibly sourced.

That's according to a U.S.-based financial technology company, Emergent Technology Holdings, that is hoping to digitally encode the gold supply chain using blockchain tech in the first half of this year.

The company is creating a digital token that it says will be backed fully by gold in the hopes of offering a way to trade the metal with greater liquidity, says Emergent's chief commercial officer, Mitchell Davis.

By digitally recording each stage of the gold supply chain, the company is able to guarantee the provenance of each piece of the metal, certify that it's responsibly sourced and check that it's 99.99 percent pure. It'll all be recorded on a virtually unchangeable digital ledger: a blockchain.

Emergent Technology is partnering with NYSE-listed Yamana Gold to create "g-coins" backed by gold, where one coin is said to be equivalent to one gram of responsibly sourced gold, and is pegged to the spot price of gold. As a blockchain-based asset, each g-coin is a digital certificate of ownership that could be used for investing, wealth transfer and payments.

This isn't the only attempt at tracking gold on a blockchain, but the company said its approach is "fundamentally different" from what others have adopted so far in part because of its focus on "responsibly sourced gold."

"Emergent is looking to build an ecosystem," Davis told CNBC in an email. As such, the company tracks the gold from its source mine, helping to "connect all steps in the supply-chain."

By attaching a cryptographic seal to the gold, they are able to use technology to track it at every point along the way, says Davis.

According to Emergent, miners like Yamana will be able to use a mobile application that scans "smart chips in tamper-proof seals and records transfer of custody and other data on the Responsible Gold blockchain."

Each step of the process is recorded, and is publicly visible.

"You've got a trusted asset that is liquid, is traded globally and is fully backed by gold," Davis said of the resulting digital token.

Using blockchain technology, the company hopes to make the process of taking gold from mines to vaults easier and automated.
