In line with its mission to build a reliable, gold-based alternative to banking, payments and money itself, the London-based fintech, Glint, has launched its super secure, lightning-fast, in-app peer-to-peer product: Glint It!.

Available for both Android and iOS, Glint It! allows you, at the tap of a screen, to:

Instantly send or receive money, including real, spendable gold and other currencies to and from Glint account holders*.

Split a dinner bill; send the gift of gold for a birthday; transfer money to other Glint accounts for products and services, or even support your offspring at university, or add money to their Glint card while they backpack around Europe…

You can also add private messages whenever you Glint it!.

So, what’s so different about Glint it!?

For a start it’s built on a platform that has been created completely in-house by the Glint engineers, so everything works seamlessly and is designed to integrate with existing and future digital products.

It’s super-fast. The Glint engineering team is built from the best designers and developers from around the world, it’s a truly international business that believes in small, brilliant teams, delivering the very highest specification to bring you instant delivery of gold and other currencies across the Glint network.

Funds are automatically and instantly debited from the sender’s Glint account and credited to the recipient’s; in real time, one tap and it’s there.

Building on Glint’s success as the first business in the world to use gold as real, everyday money, linked with the Glint Mastercard®, Glint it! allows users to pay for a wide range of goods and services around the world in the local currency, which means there is no costly commission to pay and there are minimal transaction fees — much lower than having to convert money into other currencies.

Jason Cozens, Founder and CEO of Glint, says: “The global stimulus by central banks and governments has now reached an estimated staggering $20 trillion. People everywhere are worried about how this will debase their national currencies, how it will affect their hard-earned money.

“Money should be something you can save without putting it at risk. Glint’s technology enables gold, trusted globally, to be used as money in electronic payments; it frees us all from the whims of government-issued currencies. We all deserve a more reliable form of money, and that’s what Glint provides.

“Government issued and regulated (fiat) currencies are inefficient stores of value. In my lifetime the US Dollar and British Pound have both lost around 80% of their purchasing power. In contrast the purchasing power of gold has increased by more than 500% in the same period.

“The only thing backing fiat money is the promises by governments. As we have seen during Covid-19 there is no limit to how much money a government put into circulation and run up in debts. With Glint you can protect yourself and your family from future losses in paper money’s value.”
