Few in these pages can claim the vantage point, and perhaps vision, of Ben Davies. A 20-year career in the City saw him wind up as head of rates trading at Greenwich Capital. His expertise had put him in in an ‘unparalleled and privileged position’ to judge bond and currency balances, and thereby the macroeconomic tapestry of the world: thus was Glint Pay born. Users can transfer money into gold and currency with complete control of liquidity, meaning they can technically use their gold to buy a cup of coffee. ‘We’re actually introducing a new currency into the world — or re-introducing,’ he previously told Spear’s. Davies points out that they’re able to take standing orders too: ‘You could have your wages paid into gold.’
