Since its launch in October 2018, GOLD AVENUE has seen its team grow tenfold and is already reaching nine-figure revenues, “Over the last two years, we have established ourselves as pioneers of online precious metals commerce, by continuously driving innovation in response to our customer’s evolving needs. Today, our customers will be able to use their DGLD tokens to purchase physical gold such as small bars and coins in just a few clicks - that’s rewarding”, states Alessandro Soldati, CEO of GOLD AVENUE.

Launched in October 2019, DGLD offers a solid, regulatory compliant, transparent solution supported by highly reputable precious metals and digital assets professional, to promote digital gold as a modern means of holding physical gold without forfeiting conversion.

Combining gold with the world’s largest public blockchain allows for significant improvements to the status quo, and doubles-down on the characteristics that have made it so attractive to investors for thousands of years.
