What is Tether Gold?

Tether Gold (XAUT) is a digital asset created by Tether Gold Commodities Limited. Tether Gold aims to provide users with access to an asset with a scarcity basis and price stability similar to gold, but with the transactional utility of a digital token. Indeed, the XAUT token is an ERC20 token, a token standard that defines a set of rules followed by tokens in the Ethereum ecosystem. Each XAUT token represents one troy fine ounce of London Good Delivery gold held in a vault in Switzerland. The token can be fractionalized up to six decimal places.

When an on-chain transaction transfers the token to another on-chain address, the physical gold linked to the XAUT held at each address is reallocated by Tether Gold on behalf of the token holders to minimize the number of physical gold bars associated with each address holding XAUT. This reallocation happens instantly so that each token always represents ownership of physical gold on a specific gold bar.

Tether launched the Tether Gold platform in January 2020, with JL Van de Velde as the CEO to give the ability to own digitally allocated gold in small, easily transferable amounts with relatively low fees.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you first buy cryptocurrency, you’re issued with two keys: public and private.

  • A public key serves as an address that can be shared with other parties to perform transactions.
  • A private key represents a randomly generated number that signs transactions and protects your assets from malicious attacks. If it gets compromised or lost, you won’t be able to access your cold wallet to spend, withdraw, or transfer your tokens.

To safeguard and keep track of your keys, you can use online or offline wallets. Online wallets, also known as hot wallets, store private keys on systems or devices that are connected to the internet. Hot wallets are easy and convenient to use, however, they come with several drawbacks. Besides being susceptible to attacks and a honeypot for hackers, with hot wallets, the custody of private keys is often entrusted to a third party such as a crypto exchange, which means you never have full control over your funds. The safer choice are specialized hardware wallets that store private keys offline. Stealing private keys from a hardware wallet would require physical access to the wallet and corresponding PIN or the recovery phrase. What’s more, with hardware wallet, you don’t need to rely on third party custodians.

Ledger Nano is the industry-leading hardware wallet. With more than five million customers, Ledger Nano wallets have several layers of security that protect private keys, and hence your assets:

  • Your private keys are stored on secure element chips.
  • A PIN code and a 24-word recovery phrase are required to access the wallet.
  • Ledger Nano wallets have been built using highly durable materials for protection against physical damage.

With full isolation between private keys and your computer/mobile, Ledger Nano wallets keep your keys secure and give you complete control over your tokens.
