LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / August 14, 2019 / Vivakor, Inc. (OTC PINK:VIVK), a technology and asset acquisition company with a focus in the area of natural resources, announces it will be launching a gold-backed cryptocurrency token later this year.

VivaCoins are blockchain tokens representing physical gold held in an insured storage account with the Delaware Depository Services Company, DDSC. The stored gold will be denominated in one-half Troy ounce investment grade coins minted exclusively for Vivakor, Inc. Each VivaCoin digital token will be backed by one VivaCoin physical gold coin. All digital value will be backed 1:1 with vaulted gold coins. Customers can use the Delaware facilities to store their metals within a Precious Metals IRA. All metals held in trust are professionally audited and insured.

“In anticipation of market volatility and future global revenues, Vivakor will be issuing blockchain cryptocurrency tokens for use with customer transactions and royalty payments. In response to unsolicited requests from international investors to participate in Vivakor RPC Technology programs, have led us to develop a blockchain token with beneficial features for Vivakor’s global client base. Secure immutable blockchain transactions afford seamless customer transactions and instant distribution of investor payments. VivaCoins will be launched in the third quarter and distribution will begin by the end of 2019,” stated Vivakor Chief Executive Officer Matt Nicosia.
