ABOUT US & OUR VISION

My Name is Oliver Antunovic. I am the founder and CEO of the STANDARD IN GOLD e.U. . This means that I am personally fully liable for all activities of the company.

 

Before I write about the vision of STANDARD IN GOLD, I will briefly tell you about my professional career to show that my team and I are ideally suited for the work that STANDARD IN GOLD requires.

 

At the age of 21 I was one of the top consultants at Allianz Insurance Group and responsible for the sale of Allianz Investment Bank products.. When I was 23 years old, I was recruited by a head hunter to take the position of key account manager at the GE Money Bank. Before long, at 24, I became the youngest branch manager at that bank. 4 years later I switched to WÜSTENROT Home Saving Bank which is one of the largest home savings banks in Europe, where I worked as a sales director.

 

Frankly it was a good career, but it didn't make me happy because that was how I learned how our monetary system works. I was shocked. In particular, the unfair behavior towards customers in the area of bank interest made me really angry.

 

So I decided to become self-employed and opened my first precious metals trade. That's 10 years ago now.

Eventually I came to believe that J.P. Morgan was right.

He said: "Gold is money, everything else is credit." He spoke these words as early as 1912. The man knew what he was talking about.

 

It was thus possible for me to get to know numerous people and now to put together a team of professionals who, together with me, will make STANDARD IN GOLD a successful company in the interests of the token holders.

However, during the presale I will keep my team anonymous to ensure external influences and fair handling. 

 

My team and I share a very important opinion. We no longer trust central banks.

OUR VISION

 

I had the idea for a gold-backed online currency like STANDARD IN GOLD, or STAND for short, more than 20 years ago. However, at that time the technology was not mature enough to make this possible. That was changed by the development of the blockchain.

 

Ever since the gold standard ended on August 15, 1971 and we have no real value behind our money, we have experienced inflation that devalues our money more and more every year. However, we must not forget that money is the symbolic representation of our working hours. Ergo we have to work more and longer for the same quality of life.

This arises from the fact that the responsible central banks print money at will. However, you will agree that just like people before 1971, we only have 24 hours a day.

 

As long as our monetary system is not based on a limited asset, this madness will continue

 

Now there are numerous Crypto currencies on the market. Many of these are very good! Unfortunately they all have the same problem. Their value is tied to the fiat monetary system. The value is always compared in USD. Considering that the USD has lost -85% since the separation from the gold standard, it quickly becomes clear that as long as all these excellent crypto currencies are tied to the fiat money system, they will have a similar performance in value.

 

The goal of STANDARD IN GOLD is that we achieve that crypto currencies are valued in STANDARD IN GOLD. It is therefore the goal of every decent and reputable cryptocurrency to provide STANDARD IN GOLD coverage. Thus, these crypto currencies would then also be covered by gold!

 

Consider what this means. The prosperity that will spread globally as a result is almost unimaginable. Thinking back to the old gold standard, one income was enough for a family of seven. Today this is unimaginable.

 

Through STANDARD IN GOLD, we now have the chance to introduce a new and better gold standard globally and, as a community, to shape a future of prosperity that is equally accessible to everyone.

 

I am sure you understand and share my vision and together with this opportunity we create a new, better world in which STANDARD IN GOLD and blockchain technology offer us equal opportunities and global prosperity is the motivation and goal of all of us!
