The Vaultoro Story
The History of Vaultoro begins like many startup stories do: with someone frustrated with the status quo, and enough drive to do something and solve the problem.

The MtGox collapse, as it came to be known, took away the investment of thousands of crypto users. Despite the losses, this event gave the Founders the drive to create a new crypto exchange with transparency at its core, where users could audit the assets of the exchange, anonymously and in real-time.

The Market’s First Gold

Vaultoro entered into partnerships with two of the largest gold dealers in Europe, pro aurum Switzerland AG and philoro Switzerland AG. Vaultoro chose Brink’s in Switzerland, the world’s oldest and industry leasing storage company for precious metals, as its main warehouse

Today, more than 21,000 customers from 94 countries are buying and selling gold against Bitcoin and Dash via Vaultoro. The Vaultoro Group manages 505 kilograms of gold for its customers, worth more than 20 Mio. EUR (as of November 2019) – always more than 100% above reserve, audited monthly, and in addition audited annually by the TOP-5 auditing company BDO Switzerland. All precious metals and all crypto assets are permanently verifiable for every customer by the highly innovative Glass Books Protocol – a great move forward to transparency and reliability for all the customers of Vaultoro!
