Vaultoro selected top 3 finalist out of 980 contenders in the BBVA Open Talent 2015 Europe

Vaultoro is the first true bitcoin / gold market place where thousands of people around the world all trade allocated gold and bitcoin. Vaultoro makes buying gold with bitcoin super easy with people being able to buy physical allocated gold bullion in 3 minutes after signing up!

Vaultoro Q and A

1. How long did it take you to launch your business? What are some specific challenges you’ve encountered in mounting it?
We started thinking about how to build the worlds most transparent exchange about a month after the MtGox fiasco blew up. We started doing market research to see if people wanted a real-time bitcoin gold exchange and started coding soon after that. All in all, it took us ten months to, raise an investment round, develop and get all legalities sorted before launching.


“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
—Buckminster Fuller

I used to go out and demonstrate a lot and beg governments to change things. As I got older, I realised that demos and petitions rarely change anything and only waste time. Bitcoin was a solution that didn’t require begging anyone for permission it could also never be stopped because it decentralised. For me to fall in love with Bitcoin took all of 30 seconds as the words in Satoshi’s white paper flooded my mind with possibilities and disruption. The love affair has only gotten stronger, even after five years.


3. What can you say is the best thing about your business in comparison with other crypto-related ventures? Can you share some definite advantages of operating it?
Vaultoro.com was the first real-time bitcoin gold trading platform in the world. Enabling people around the globe to protect themselves from the bitcoin volatility without insta-selling to back to fiat. This is a major step for cryptocurrency, if we truly want to escape the grip of debt based centrally controlled currencies then we need to stop insta-selling back to debt based fiat.
The other crucial thing that Vaultoro has shown the world is that the KYC laws are way more relaxed with gold because it is ‘a good’ and not officially recognised as money anymore. This is important for privacy as well as inclusion. Try getting KYC compliant documents from an unbanked street merchant in Sub-Saharan Africa, it’s not going to happen, and they are the types of people that could use bitcoin the most. Bitcoin has always been about inclusion and it feels good running a service like Vaultoro.com that empowers people like that to use bitcoin without the volatility.


4. What do you think Bitcoin needs to become a more prominent and reliable form of payment? What’s preventing it from going mainstream?
Bitcoin needs safety, ease of use and a killer app. These things are all being built, and it is only a matter of time before they it happens.
SAFTY: There are many cool advancements, for instance, we at Vaultoro are developing a new type of multi-sig hot wallet that will make it impossible to hack and drain the whole wallet even for insiders like employees or executives. I don’t want to give too much away just yet, but as soon as we release it, we hope it will become standard across all exchanges.
EASE OF USE: We are finally heading away from Geekville, just look at co-pay wallet or trezor. It makes it so easy to use complex technologies like multisig or cold wallet signing. Every day more services come out that make bitcoin easier to use, lowering the barrier to entry and lifting the floodgate to mass adoption.
Killer apps: One day we will wake up and someone will have released a killer app that everyone wants and will help spread bitcoin. Just like Space Invaders was the killer app for home gaming or VisiCalc (spreadsheets) where the killer app for the sale of the first personal computers. Silk Road was the first killer app for bitcoin but I think remittance, games with in-game currencies and decentralised markets will be the next.


5. What have been the greatest accomplishments or the best times you have had while operating your business since its inception? What characteristics of your business do you consider the most revolutionary?
What blew my mind was when we went live with Vaultoro.com and started getting a lot of people from Greece exiting the euro banking system by securing their wealth in gold using bitcoin. We also had people in places like Botswana Africa purchased gold. For the first time in history, a normal person in a relatively poor country could hold their wealth no matter how small in top-tier investment grade audited and insured Swiss bullion vaults! This was always something that only high net worth elite of the world had access to! Not only that, for the first time in history the normal person can spend their gold instantly anywhere around the world where bitcoin is accepted!
