Tight spreads provide greater liquidity for gold bullion and silver bullion investors and traders. Currently, the Kinesis Exchange offers some of the tightest spreads available across the entire precious metals industry, but — how?

The cause behind this phenomenon is minting, a process only found in the Kinesis monetary system. Widespread minting is tightening spreads and enhancing liquidity within the Kinesis Exchange.

So, how exactly does that work?


Minting is the lucrative process of creating your own Kinesis gold bullion and silver bullion based digital currencies.

All minted Kinesis gold and silver bullion based digital currencies, which are then transacted through the Kinesis system, earn the minter a recurring yield of physical gold and physical silver paid into their Kinesis account — forever. We call this the Minters Yield.

The Minters Yield is worked out from a proportionate 5% share of global transaction fees, across the entire Kinesis system.

How does minting cause tight spreads?

Let’s have a look:

  1. Minting results in a lot of Kinesis users seeking to trade their recently minted KAU and KAG on the Kinesis Exchange, hoping to activate the Minters Yield on that currency, as soon as possible.
  2. With the aim of securing a swift trade, Kinesis minters offer a personal limit order book, with tight spreads.
  3. As a result, other Kinesis users and minters on the Kinesis Exchange tighten spreads to stay competitive, which tightens spreads across the board, enhancing liquidity.

Minting is a process unique to Kinesis monetary system and, therefore, its beneficial effect on spreads and the cost of liquidity is only accessible on the all-new Kinesis Exchange.

With the Minters Yield encouraging minting activity, the future for the spreads and liquidity on the Kinesis Exchange looks very bright indeed.
