Roy Sebag and Josh Crumb never dreamed of all the ways customers would use their gold payment and savings platform.

There’s the guy who bought a car using gold. There’s the guy saving for his wedding in gold. There’s the Argentinian kid using gold as his savings account because his family has been devastated by currency crashes. There’s the Canadian who transfers funds to his college-age children offshore using gold, thereby avoiding foreign exchange conversion fees and actually making a profit because gold prices rose after his initial deposit.

Sebag describes the platform called BitGold as a “canvas” where everyone paints their own picture.

Gold is a currency,” said Sebag, chief executive of Toronto-based GoldMoney Inc. “And once you start letting it behave like a currency, different people will have different utility for it at different times. That’s what we’re seeing.”

    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come
    across a blog that’s both educative and engaging, and let
    me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough men and
    women are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy
    that I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
