Gold Crypto Company Icon Capital Lists on GXG First Quote

LONDON, August 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --


ICON Capital Reserve SA ("ICON") the Panama based financial services company behind AUREALS™, a crypto-currency fungible with physical gold, is pleased to announce that its common shares have been admitted to trade on First Quote of GXG Markets in Europe (http://www.gxgmarkets.co.uk).

ICON CEO J. Bradley Hall commented, "Voltaire was famously quoted as saying 'Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value - zero' and the fiat currencies of the world seem to be in a race to see who will be next. Of the 775 fiat currencies launched throughout history, 559 have disappeared completely, so the continued debasement of the $USD, appears to be assured and we have launched ICON to participate in shaping what may come next. Listing our shares on GXG Markets is an important step in our corporate development."

ICON COO John Gainor observed, "I think we can agree that the 20th century was an industrial revolution where resources were centralized and automation was used to extract efficiencies. Our current, closed financial system reflects this approach where trust is achieved through access control, encryption, firewalls, strong authentication, and careful vetting (KYC) all aimed at excluding bad actors. This centralized financial system is being disrupted through innovation and internal decay."

Mr. Hall added, "The full faith and credit of fiat currency issuers is being eroded. 'The Emperor Has No Clothes' is a growing sentiment but another explanation may have to do with applied mathematics and the 21st century's technology revolution, which now includes a shift to a peer to peer computing architecture."

ICON's Hall also observed, "In the 21st century, decentralized financial model, auditors and enforcers are replaced by 'consensus trust', which involves increasingly difficult computational calculations that are solved by harnessing the computing power of millions of peers on the network. Applied mathematics alone may one day create the trust required for peer to peer transactions of any asset but today AUREALS™ denominated in gold, marry the promise of math based trust to a 6000 year old store of value that in 1912 JP Morgan famously observed 'Money is GOLD - Nothing else'."
