Dubai, UAE –August 08, 2023 – ICON has Been Providing GOLD STANDARD WEALTH PROTECTION FOR UHNW & INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS SINCE 2013 an now offers details on What AUREALS™ are.

ICON Founder, Chairman and CEO J. Bradley Hall explained: “AUREALS™ are a 1-gram Digital Currency fully backed by Insured, REAL AU Bars in Non-Bank Vaults in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai & Switzerland. KYC & AML On-boarding is completed <7 Seconds in 200+ Countries & Global Transfers are Cleared & Settled on HEDERA Distributed Ledger in <1 second.

J Bradley continued: “AUREALS™ are Faster, Cheaper, Environmentally Sound Money that can be Reserved in a bank-like ICON Non-Custodial Digital Wallet offering FX Accounts, Liquidity & an ICON LIMITLESS™ Credit card, fully insured for $1 billion. Private clients holding AUREALS™ continue to enjoy AU appreciation averaging 8% per year (for 50+ years) tapping liquidity on demand. AUREALS™ are minted at the LBMA 2nd fix or spot set daily in London. The bid price of AUREALS™ is spot & key global traders have indicated that 100% AU backed AUREALS™, may trade at a premium to spot +15%, once escape velocity is achieved. This implies 5% to 30% seigniorage on each minted AUREAL™, which may increase further as AUREALS™ become a trusted source for price discovery, replacing 300:1 re-hypothecated LBMA synthetic AU.”

Hall added: “Creators & Custodians of Inter-generational wealth understand Physical AU stored outside a financial institution like the ICON allocated .9999 Bars in non-bank vaults in Shanghai; Hong Kong; Singapore, Dubai & Switzerland are exempt from declaration. While families utilizing non-bank Vaults may pay 1% in annual fees, ICON enjoys wholesale vaulting rates.The Swiss mountain fortress is a former military facility with an attached private airstrip, luxe hospitality chalet, internal data center & is fully hardened against nuclear, biological, chemical & EMP attacks. Explosion proof security, bullet proof locks, facial recognition, video & 24-hour surveillance all enhance Privacy into the ultimate expression of Security, Discretion & Trust.”

In closing the ICON Founder Stated: ” I think Benjamin Franklin stated that ‘Time is Money’ and JP Morgan famously noted that ‘GOLD is Money, Everything else is Credit’. Now that global AUREALS™ transfers clear, settle and can be irrevocably registered in less than a second, all without going through a bank, you can reasonably conclude that they are both right!”.

About ICON:
ICON CAPITAL RESERVE SA has Been Providing GOLD STANDARD WEALTH PROTECTION FOR UHNW & INSTITUTIONAL INVESTORS SINCE 2013 and will soon be making AUREALS™ available to Individuals across the globe. ICON is solving Physical AU & Digital Currency Structural Problems: (1) Central Bank Leased Physical AU Has been Re-hypothecated 300:1 by LBMA Bullion Banks. AUREALS™ circulate as AU digital money, reserved 1:1 with Physical AU Bars in fully insured, non-bank vaults. 100% AU backing is legally verified with regular audits, unlike LBMA bullion banks who re-hypothecate (sell) leased Central Bank AU 300:1; (2) The Value Stored in Physical AU Bars Lacks Velocity. CINTAMANI™ embed the Vault issued SKR meta data into an NFT, which is immutably reserved on the Hedera distributed ledger. Each CINTAMANI™ is directly linked 1:1 with a Physical AU Bar. Minting releases 1,000 ~ 1-gram digital AUREALS™, adding Velocity to the Physical AU Bars; (3) Digital Currencies are subject to Regulatory Uncertainty. AUREALS™ are 100% AU backed & purchases of GOLD or AU currencies are not deemed to be securities under the Howey Test, which defines securities as investments of money in a common enterprise and a reasonable expectation of profits to be derived from the efforts of others; (4) Digital Currencies on Un-regulated Exchanges are Un-suitable for Institutional Investors. AUREALS™ are also offered via a Wiener Börse listed ETF type tracker. QI’s & Institutional Investors can trade an AUREALS™ GOLD backed money market fund, with a 0% Load, 0% Management Fees, ISIN issued by SIXSWISS, clearing on EUROCLEAR & quoted on Bloomberg; (5) Digital Currencies lack REAL Liquidity. AUREALS™ sent in any quantum will clear, settle & be irrevocable registered on Hedera in<1 second, without going through a bank. Holders of >25k AUREALS™ enjoy additional Liquidity on Demand with ICON Treasury offering SWAPS for: (i) any currency; (ii) Physical AU; or use as collateral for spend on an ICON LIMITLESS™ card; (6) Digital Currencies are Slow, Expensive & Environmentally Harmful. AUREALS™ clear & settle 10k TPS @ USD$0.0001 per. This is 6x faster than VISA/MC & a quantum leap ahead of BTC (4 TPM @ USD$22.57 per) & ETH (15 TPS @ USD$19.55 per). Consumption of 0.00017 KWH per AUREAL™ transaction obliterates each BTC ~ 885+ & ETH 102+ KWH transactions.
