Tradewind has built a technology platform for digitizing the trading, settlement, and ownership of precious metals. The Tradewind solution combines world-class exchange technology with Vaultchain™, Tradewind’s blockchain technology tailored for precious metals. Tradewind was formed in 2016 and is managed by a team of professionals with extensive experience in electronic trading, market structure, gold investment management, market operations, cryptography and blockchain technology.
The Tradewind Platform is an electronic market (ECN) and private blockchain technology solution that aims to connect market participants and enable them to trade, settle and manage ownership of precious metals, beginning with VaultChain™ Gold accounts.
The Tradewind electronic market (ECN) is powered by world-class exchange technology. The ECN accepts orders and matches trades for gold vs. fiat currencies, and disseminates market data for executable bids and offers. The VaultChain™ Gold leg of trades must be settled on the blockchain backed by physical gold at RCM. Buyers and sellers trade and settle with each other directly on a bi-lateral credit basis managed by the ECN’s integrated credit engine; Tradewind is strictly a technology provider and does not act as agent or principal in market transactions.
