Global Payout, Inc. (OTCMKTS:GOHE), a leading provider of international electronic payment solutions, announced today that it has completed the formation of a joint venture that will launch the world’s first, self-directed, and gold-backed currency hedge mechanism in connection with a debit card specifically for use by consumers and investors. Called the AUX Prepaid Gold Card, the new gold card will give gold investors the instantaneous and seamless ability to convert their gold bullion investments into the OFAC compliant FX currency of their choice when making ATM cash withdrawals or merchant purchases.
This gold-backed and gold based liquidity mechanism is the first of its kind. Preliminary indications of interest for the AUX Prepaid Gold Card are running extremely high according to the news release issued today. Speculators seemed to the like plans as the stock whose quoted is mentioned above traded up over 60% on the news. Additionally, the company is expecting to earn a substantial share of revenue from the joint venture company. Initial revenue will commence by April of 2015 and should increase significantly over the following three quarters of 2015. As always forward statements issued in these news releases should not be taken as investment advice.
Many investors know that, generally speaking and over the longer term, paper currency and gold have a generally inverse relationship. And many investors know that the overwhelming majority of currencies of the world are fiat currencies. Fiat currencies are currencies that are only backed by the issuing government’s laws, reserves and pledges to pay, but are not 100% collateralized by assets. Many investors also consider gold investments as a “flight to quality” during times of economic uncertainty, market unrest or political crisis.
The AUX Prepaid Gold Card offers capable investors and consumers the ability to back their own paper currency values through the use of their own gold creating a self-directed, 100% gold backed currency mechanism. The AUX Prepaid Gold Card provides instantaneous liquidity of deposited gold as an alternative to fiat currencies and the ability to convert that gold into the currency of their choice on demand through the swipe of their AUX Gold Card. The AUX Gold Card may also provide somewhat of a hedge against fluctuating currency values, but may not always work to the consumer’s or investor’s advantage. The card will initially be launched in non-US countries meeting OFAC compliance requirements.
The AUX Prepaid Gold Card is made possible through an executed joint venture agreement between Credit and AUX Technology Pte Ltd (AUX) based in Singapore and Global Payout, who received a 33% equity ownership in the Asian financial technology company.
The gold and currency platform developed by AUX allows consumers and investors to invest in gold coupled with International Prepaid cards provided by Global Payout the mechanism giving instant liquidity to gold investments. AUX has initiated a paradigm shift in gold investment and utilization by allowing investors the ability to invest in physical gold bullion and access its value when needed 24/7 in any designated location worldwide. This highly secure system allows the users to deposit funds, execute trades in gold and FOREX currencies, and withdraw funds with access to Global’s international prepaid cards. The AUX principals have over 100 years of combined financial markets experience.
Jim Hancock, CEO of Global Payout concluded: “We feel our partners at AUX have come up with a gold asset-backing and liquidity mechanism whose time has come. We feel this is an excellent opportunity for our payment platforms and prepaid debit cards. And we are expecting significant interest in this product from a variety of sources around the world,” he added.
