High preservation capacity. Gold, silver and platinum are one of the most long-life materials on Earth.
Liquidity. Gold, silver and platinum have held a universally recognized value in all corners of the world for thousands of years.
Divisibility, integrality and qualitative homogeneity. Gold, silver and platinum can be cast as bars of a certain weight and fineness which can be standardized and homogeneous.
Rarity. There is little gold, silver and platinum on Earth and total volume is limited.
According to the World Gold Council, the annual volume of gold bought by investors has increased by no less than 235% over the past three decades.
Even after 1971 when the U.S. abandoned its “Gold Standard,” gold remains a valuable asset that serves as a precious metal and real money until today.
As today, trust in fiat money is based on what is referred to as the “full faith and credit” of the government that issues the fiat money in question. There is no asset backing the currency; the dollar value is based on what citizens think it is worth rather than an intrinsic value. If the government increases the supply of fiat money at will, the value will drop with no destination as it is subject to abuse and miscalculation. That is why money supply today is a major topic for many governments who have employed quantitative easing policies in the past few years. Any misbehavior by the government or politicians could result in significant stress of the value of that currency.
According to the Institute of International Finance (IIF), in 2017 the global debt reached a huge amount of 217 trillion dollars, this is 327 percent of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP).
Before the era of financial crisis, the global debt was 149 trillion dollars and it has increased by 70 trillion in just ten years.
This debt poses a huge risk by creating a global financial “bubble” the collapse of which will result in a crisis of truly biblical results.
The key effect is to take away the ease at which politicians can create money and to manipulate money supply due to its scarcity of resources. The commodity-backed currency indeed rectifies the shortfall of the fiat money by benchmarking its value against a commodity.
One of the main Coineru currency advantages is protection from inflation and possible political and other country risks as CGLD being backed by an ounce of gold, CSLV is backed by an ounce of silver and CPLT is backed by an ounce of platinum. Anyone can exchange CGLD, CSLV and CPLT for physical gold, silver or platinum.
