Vaultoro is based in the United Kingdom with subsidiaries in Europe to facilitate the easiest, fastest and most reliable way to invest and save in precious metals and digital assets like Bitcoin.
Vaultoro was founded in 2015 by Joshua Scigala and Philip Scigala. The two brothers, who have a background in software engineering and finance, respectively, were interested in creating a secure and transparent platform for investing in gold that was also accessible to anyone with an internet connection.
Joshua Scigala had previously founded a Bitcoin startup, as he was impressed by the transparency and security that blockchain technology could provide. This led him to develop the concept for Vaultoro, which uses blockchain like technology to provide a transparent and secure platform for trading and investing in gold.
The idea behind Vaultoro was to create a platform that would allow investors to trade gold in real-time, similar to the way stocks are traded on a stock exchange. This would provide investors with more control over their investments and greater transparency into the underlying assets.
After launching in 2015, Vaultoro quickly gained traction among investors who were interested in the security and transparency that the platform provided. Today, Vaultoro is a leading platform for trading and investing in gold and silver, and it continues to innovate and expand its platform to meet the needs of investors around the world.
