The Vaultoro Referral Program is as Good as Gold

Vaultoro is the world’s leading and most established Gold to cryptocurrency exchange. Since starting in 2015 the exchange has been responsible for many firsts over the years in the bitcoin space. Today the relaunch of their referral program brings another first; users being rewarded actual physical gold for referring people to the platform.

Giving Away the Gold

The gold giveaway is meant to celebrate the Vaultoro community and reward users for being part of the company’s success story. For every new user that is referred and trades on the platform, the referrer and the new users will each get ½ gram of actual gold bullion. 

The gold plus the 20% commission on all trading fees for 2 years aim to make Vaultoro’s referral program one of the most lucrative rewards programs in the crypto space

“We believe that our users are the reason we have been so successful” said Phillip Scigala, Vaultoro Co–Founder, “so when it comes time to paying for marketing we want to see as much of that as possible go to the community instead of a 3rd party advertising platform”

Security is Paramount

Vaultoro has always believed that there is a great opportunity to protect against Fiat using rare metals and rare cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. In recent years, the platform has expanded to include Dash as well. First and foremost, Vaultoro has always been about security and transparency, which is why there is such a high level of transparency in the platform and public audits are an integral part of the platform. 

Community First

But the Vaultoro team has also always been about community. And much of Vaultoro’s growth has come from word of mouth referrals from loyal users. 

“Bitcoin as a phenomenon was built by word of mouth and referrals” said Joshua Scigala, Co-Founder of Vaultoro, “and we believe that community and organic growth is still one of the most powerful and underutilized forces in crypto.”

Referral Rewards

This is exactly the thinking behind this referral program relaunch. By adding even more incentives to an already popular referral system, Vaultoro aims to show the crypto space what a truly successful crypto affiliate program can achieve.

The details are all available on the Vaultoro website but in a nutshell referrers get:

  • 20% of trading fees of people they refer
  • 5% of trading fees of 2nd tier referrals
  • ½ gram of gold for each active trader

Plus the new active traders also each get ½ gram of gold, so that makes referring that much easier. Terms and conditions do apply and are available on

‘Digital Gold’ Crypto Asset BitGesell Announces Listing on Hotbit Exchange

Bitcoin press release: With its latest listing on the HotBit Exchange, BitGesell coin (BGL) continues to prove that a decentralized architecture designed to overcome Bitcoin’s shortcomings will have the support of stakeholders in a crypto ecosystem, betting on intrinsic features like transactional coin burning that can establish BGL as true digital gold.

11th June 2020, Amsterdam, NetherlandsCrypto asset BitGesell is quickly shaping up to be one of this year’s most promising projects, focusing on practical application with incentive propositions that appeal directly to miners, investors and network participants.

Its latest listing on popular crypto exchange HotBit Exchange is only the latest milestone for BGL, now allowing better access via trading on the open market, to allow more people to experience what it really means to own digital gold.

Is Bitcoin really the digital version of gold?

While Bitcoin’s role is firmly established in the cryptocurrency industry, foremost as the  world’s most liquid digital asset, there remain questions as to what its true purpose could be in the near future.

Throughout its evolution over a short 11 years of existence, the symbolic father of crypto has carried several different tags. And as Bitcoin changed its form, community and found new and different uses, so have the meanings of these tags changed.

If Bitcoin was originally the peer-to-peer digital money that people would use to send to each other as payment for goods and services, today, that usage has arguably moved away to cheaper and faster alternatives as scalability issues that have plagued Bitcoin from the beginning have not been fully addressed.

Even up to 2017, it was still possible to send Bitcoin transactions with little to no fees, but each time the network experiences a surge in activity, just as it has been since May 2020, congestion has led to fee wars, as Bitcoin users bid to have miners include their transactions for confirmations before others.

According to some sources, average Bitcoin fees in 2020 grew more than 2,200%. Second-layer solutions like Lightning Network have seen some success in speedy and cheap transactions, but at the cost of taking the transaction off-chain. Lightning Network solutions, along with Segregated Witness introduced in 2017, have also a long way to come in mass adoption, with most major service providers and client wallets yet to be compatible with these.

Bitcoin’s situation also becomes less obvious even when taking into account Lightning Network and scalability uptakes. For miners, halved block rewards, compounded with negligible fees over Lightning, and increased block size from SegWit, mean that miner costs can no longer be covered by block subsidies or fees. Miners will be forced to switch off, leading to network difficulty decreases in the long term.

Why BGL scarcity is the real deal in deflationary digital gold

BitGesell Head Developer Emma Wu outlines how BGL has addressed each of Bitcoin’s shortcomings, ensuring that it is designed especially to fit the digital gold premise of maintaining and growing in value over the long term.

In particular, the programmed burn feature of BGL, whereby 90% of every transaction fee sent to miners will be irrecoverably destroyed. This isn’t just a promise of buyback and token burns, like most projects do, relying on centralized decisions to burn tokens. This is a hard-coded programming that forces burning to happen with every transaction.

Token burning is a proven token economics model that uses basic supply and demand principles. In this economics model, when supply is decreased, and demand remains, price equilibrium will become higher. Essentially, every BGL transaction increases the scarcity of the coin, thereby increasing its price equilibrium and giving it more value in dollar terms.

Compare this to gold, which rate of extraction is a very low 1.8% annually, or to national currencies which are entering unprecedented money printing to infinity. With all the world’s major assets and currencies, inflation is happening at a steady pace. Bitcoin was designed as a deflationary currency because of its rigid supply constraint, which is the basic fundamental of Bitcoin’s utility and demand: there will only ever be 21 million Bitcoin. 

And because BGL is built off the Bitcoin source code, there is also only ever going to be a maximum possible amount of 21 million BGL. But because Bitcoin has technical shortcomings like halvings once only every four years, and low-transaction fees, it’s scarcity factor will play out over decades.

However, with BGL, the deflationary pressure is quicker with token burning and shorter halving times and smaller blocks, seeing a max supply of 21 million BGL ever mined in just a few years, after which, max supply can only drop with transaction burning.

In details:

  1. Smaller block sizes (10% Bitcoin block size), combined with higher transaction fees, ensure that miners are well compensated, and that only large transactions take place, promoting holding and keeping supply tight.
  2. Increased scarcity measures by token burning. 90% of all transaction fees in BGL will be permanently destroyed, ensuring that even more of the fixed supply is removed with every transaction. 
  3. Community wallet specified in genesis block itself. A community wallet has been specified in the very first BitGesell block mined, and will receive funds to be distributed for further project growth, placed as a message: “Your support helps ecosystem keep growing. bgl1qkecxxg8ekyruwkkhea7ye5c0ganmhdl7d5nna3”.

The balance and transactions of this wallet can be viewed publicly on the blockchain, with the usage of funds there reported periodically to the community. This is BGL’s statement of commitment for building and expanding BGL infrastructure.

  1. Annual halving to achieve a max supply of 21 million coins and zero emissions like BTC, but in a fraction of the time.

While Bitcoin holders today will never live to see the day Bitcoin achieves zero emissions and lives up to its digital gold tag, BitGesell holders need only wait a few years to see Bitcoin the way its economic model described it to be.
