Gold-buying apps, which allow customers to buy and use the precious metal for everyday spending, are seeing record volumes as investors flock to the safe-haven commodity amid violent market swings on fears of a coronavirus-fueled global recession.
British-based startup Glint Pay Services, which operates in the U.S., the U.K. and continental Europe, said it had seen a 718% increase in clients purchasing gold over the last five weeks as volatility stemming from the coronavirus pandemic swept through markets.
“Sales are going through the roof,” Jason Cozens, founder and CEO of Glint told MarketWatch in a telephone interview. “We are breaking records everyday.”
Goldplat plc (LON:GDP) is an AIM-listed, profitable gold recovery services company with two market leading operations in South Africa and Ghana.
