News Date: November 3, 2023

HSBC is the First Bank in the World to Offer Tokenized Gold.
HSBC Holdings Plc, a major bullion bank, has introduced a platform that utilizes blockchain technology to tokenize ownership of gold stored in its London vault.
This platform generates digital tokens representing gold bars, making gold trading more accessible.
While initially targeting institutional investors, it plans to open up to retail investors where regulations allow.
HSBC's entry into the tokenized gold market is notable due to its significant role as a custodian of precious metals and a clearer on the London gold market.
The technology promises to streamline the process, allowing clients to easily track their gold ownership down to the serial number of each bar.
HSBC has been actively exploring blockchain technology and recently launched HSBC Orion, a tokenization platform for digital bonds, with successful applications in the market.

Judy Shelton is Right About the Gold Standard

Economist Peter Schiff expected that gold will resume its role in the global monetary system, that is, the countries of the world will return to the gold standard, and this is not strange in light of the economic crisis the world is witnessing.
It is simply false to claim that the gold standard was a source of perpetual economic chaos, and that we are better off today without it. All things considered, the gold standard is "superior in some respects and no worse in others." Rather than a "barbarous relic," as John Maynard Keynes famously called it, the gold standard is an instrument for economic harmony and civilized commercial relations.
