Australian global digital gold innovation platform SendGold has signed a distribution deal with Australian global payments innovation provider Verrency.

This partnership agreement with Verrency enables SendGold’s customers to spend directly from a SendGold account at merchants through existing card networks – without the need for a significant change in SendGold’s or merchants’ existing payments and technology architecture. Both parties have made significant commercial inroads on a global scale. This week SendGold was named a finalist for FinTech Australia’s 2019 Excellence in Establishing a Global Market Presence, while Verrency won this category in 2018. In addition, SendGold’s CEO Jodi Stanton won the 2019 Fintech Business Awards for Femtech Leader of the Year.
SendGold is a digital management platform of physical gold. “SendGold is stripping out the many layers of cost, making gold useful as money with a growing number of instant liquidity options including sale, peer-to-peer transfer, gifts and payments”, states Stanton. She adds, “the Verrency relationship now adds spending gold as an option and will help us to outpace both traditional gold players and blockchain token issuers with utility well beyond simple speculation.” “SendGold is a great fit for us because gold is understood and valued by people the world over”, said Verrency CEO David Link. “We’re excited to have SendGold on board in our curated fintech marketplace and look forward to offering their insured physical gold option to our banks and their customers around the world”.
The Verrency partnership also enables SendGold to work with banks to offer their customers an innovative new payment and investment option with none of the regulatory risk or security concerns that exist with other new forms of digital currency.
“The ways people hold and transfer value around the world are changing rapidly”, said Stanton, “and based on gold’s clearly-defined legal and regulatory status, deep trading markets greater than the S&P 500, universal acceptance, and 2500-year backtest for holding its value, we’re confident it will maintain its long-term place at the table”.
