Why is Singapore Building Up its Gold Reserve For First Time in Over 20 Years?

Why is Singapore Building Up its Gold Reserve For First Time in Over 20 Years?

Recently, the World Gold Council conducted a survey where it found that financial institutions, both private and public, are losing faith in the U.S. dollar. As a result, central banks are dropping dollars for gold. For example, Singapore increased its gold reserves by 20% earlier this year. By the second quarter of 2021, Singapore had added an additional 26.3 tons of gold. This is the first time Singapore has expanded its gold reserves since 2000, and its reserves now hold about 154 tons of the precious metal. The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) believes that investing more in gold will allow the central bank to further diversify its portfolio and remain resilient through financial turmoil.

Alpha Bullion is an innovative service for redeeming PAX Gold tokens for real, physical gold. Each token acts as proof of ownership for 1 oz of gold stored at no additional cost in bar form in some of the most secure vaults in London. This provides all the stability benefits offered by precious metals without the burden of storage or shipping. It also allows for a market first feature, as the potential for cryptocurrency loans using PAX Gold would allow customers to essentially earn dividends on precious metals. This unique bridge between the ancient and the innovative has already drawn attention from press such as Coindesk and Jim Cramer of Mad Money.
