Ubuntu Tribe, in partnership with RED Media and DLM Capital Group, proudly announces the resounding success of the Utribe Wallet and GIFT Token launch at the Radisson Blu Anchorage on November 18, 2023. This landmark event signifies a significant leap forward in the evolution of regenerative finance.
Utribe Wallet, an avant-garde platform provides customers the possibility to buy gold from as low as 50 Naira from the ease of their mobile phone. Ubuntu Tribe offers the opportunity to build real savings and preserve their purchasing power, in a context of depreciating local currencies that is fast eroding the hard work of working class and companies treasuries. No need to carry cash under the mattress, within Utribe Wallet from any mobile phone, customers can convert Naira into gold in the form of GIFT as a store of value. GIFT (Gold International Fungible Token) is a digital certificate of gold ownership and backed 1:1 with physical gold. The gold is, audited, insured, and securely stored in reputable and regulated world class vaults across Europe, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and Switzerland.
Customers can send and receive GIFT to one another within Utribe Wallet at affordable fees. The physical gold itself doesn’t move, it remains securely stored, only the digital certificate of gold ownership is transferred. Any user can claim the underlying physical gold at any given time at a preferred location by redeeming their GIFT in the platform.
Ubuntu Tribe announces a new era of shared prosperity and collective wealth preservation by democratising access to gold. GIFT was acclaimed by reputable institutions such as the Nigerian Stock Exchange Group, and Lagos Commodities and Futures Exchange, the path set towards a successful adoption and acceleration in the region.
The launch by Ubuntu Tribe in partnership with RED Media and DLM Capital Group represents a bold step towards fortifying capital markets through the introduction of tokenized natural mineral assets. These assets, mined sustainably and universally accessible, usher in a new era of wealth security and opportunities, with the aim of enhancing financial literacy, inclusion and access in the global economy. The launch of GIFT was all the more celebrated as a credible solution to unlock Africa’s massive untapped wealth of natural resources. The continent hosts 46% of the global gold deposit. GIFT accessibility on Utribe Wallet significantly contributes to restoring African dignity powered by technology bringing gold at the palm of people’s hands.
