Throughout history, gold has represented timeless value and has been used by governing bodies as a currency. In fact, gold is the only commodity that has continuously, despite economic cycles, maintained utility as a global reserve and trade currency (Bordo, 2017). In the formative years of the modern, global economy, the value of most government issued fiat currencies were expressed as a function of gold. And whilst the Gold Standard has now been largely abandoned, it remains as a refuge asset class in times of economic or geo-political volatility (Elwell, 2011). In this way, the historical and inherent value of gold remains clear and influences traders and other market makers even today. The timelessness, steadfastness, and universality of the value of gold are qualities that strongly influence the ethos of the Auric Network.
