About The Real Asset Co

The next-generation gold investment platform

The Real Asset Company enables individuals around the world to buy gold and silver bullion securely and efficiently. Our investor-friendly platform sits on top of first-class global vaulting infrastructure, providing an online account for buying gold and silver and holding precious metals.

Goldbloc, our gold-backed cryptocurrency adds an additional layer of transparency and control to your gold investment. Backed by one gram of gold, we believe our cryptocurrency is the first step to bringing gold back to the monetary system.

When you buy gold, you take direct ownership of allocated gold that becomes your legal property. You own physical gold – we are just the custodian. We think this provides a superior product to gold ETFs, securities and unallocated gold accounts, where the client does not have legal title physical gold bullion. Why invest in gold if you don’t own the real thing?
