Once the ICO fundraising is complete tokens will be available to buy on several exchanges though the names of these have not been disclosed. 

Panning for security: gold-backed tokens may reassure some given digital asset volatility

Jinbi claims its gold-backed token merges traditional investment with blockchain technology – giving a degree of added stability. Gold-backed cryptocurrencies aim to provide a sense of security to owners for their digital cash in the form of traditional fiat assets. The theory is that this allows the token holder to experience the best of both worlds.

The long haul home for gold

“The Jinbi token provides both the precious metals investor market and crypto currency enthusiast with an advanced value preservation solution, as well as an innovative and accountable structure using a smart contract on the Ethereum blockchain,” says the company. 

Token holders are eligible to receive quarterly precious metals and crypto currency investment reports, though to receive the reports there is a minimum investment of 0.1 ether during the main ICO.
