After choosing a mould, the users take on the role of a goldsmith, staking the appropriate amount of gold to create the gold-backed NFT which is immediately minted and deposited into the user’s Ethereum wallet.

If at any time, the owner of this NFT wishes to extract the original DGX (1 gram of gold per DGX), they may do so by choosing the “melt” option. This destroys the NFT and unlocks the staked DGX to be returned to the owner’s wallet. Every gold bar backing DGX is always openly verifiable by the public, 24/7, with blockchain technology at The DGX vaults, located in Singapore and Canada, are accredited members of the Bullion Association and are fully insured.
