The Problem

The global financial system is broken. Consumers are desperate for a fairer playing field – one where they are in control.

The Solution

Meld’s core unique selling point is a beautifully simple user experience.

With technology moving faster than design most cryptocurrencies haven’t had a chance to consider the end user, resulting in poorly designed and hard-to-use platforms.

Meld is going to spearhead a much-needed design movement, vastly improving the UX for cryptonatives while making it easier for the rest of us to get started.

The Solution

Wealth management has never been easier to control.

With Meld, you can:

  • Trade between currencies
  • Multiple payment options
  • Access market insights
  • Transfer funds
  • Global partner directory
  • Withdraw physical gold
  • Refer and earn gold
  • Full accounting capability
  • Customisable dashboard
  • Flexible cold storage

Token Design

Meld is built on two tokens.

A gold-backed currency:

  • 1 GOLD token = 1 gram a physical gold
  • Stored in the world’s most secure vaulting facilities
  • Fully redeemable for physical gold

A security token:

  • Earns gold via every transaction
  • Helps shape the future of digital currency

The Team

The team behind Meld are experts in gold, design and technology.
