| What is Pecunix?
Pecunix is a gold based currency and payment solution that allows people on opposite sides of the world to make and receive payments instantly via the Internet. Because gold has an internationally agreed value, Pecunix is a system that is perfectly suited to the specific demands of e-commerce.
Pecunix is an extraordinarily safe system to use because it is 100% underwritten by gold at all times. In other words, every currency unit in the Pecunix system is supported at all times by an equivalent amount of gold, which itself is stored in an independently monitored, internationally approved storage vault.
How does Pecunix work?
The idea of using gold to underwrite an Internet payment system is not new:
Gold Based Internet Currencies - or GBICs - have been around on the Internet since 1995. GBICs have now processed billions of dollars in Internet transactions, and that figure will only get larger as more consumers and merchants tune into the benefits of using gold as a payment medium.
Pecunix is, however, unique among GBICs. Pecunix has been designed to take the GBIC concept to a whole new level by offering:
- a global network of value-added opportunities such as retailers and currency exchanges
- absolute privacy
- exceptional reliability
- ease of use
- complete transparency
- unparalleled security at both the technical and financial levels
- very low operating costs.
Pecunix provides an alternative to fiat currencies, as do the other competing digital gold currencies. One benefit claimed by many proponents of digital gold currencies is that by keeping assets out of fiat currencies, one avoids some inflationary risks. Another claimed benefit is low fees. Transactions made in the Pecunix system are charged a fee of 0.50% of the payment amount up to 100 grams of gold and 0.15% of any amount over 100 grams up to a maximum fee of 3 grams. The minimum fee payment is 0.0001 gram.
