How to Trade in Digital Gold

Although gold is no longer utilised as a form of currency, it can still be used as a form of payment. In India, gold is regarded as "God's Money," given to sacred institutions on almost every significant event. As a result, India is now the world's largest gold importer.

Even though we are amid a global pandemic, Indians have discovered a new way to invest in gold: Digital Gold.

Did you know you can buy gold from as low was Rs 10 on the Wizely app?


The most general approach to investing in gold in the past has been to purchase actual, physical gold in the form of:

  1. Coins
  2. Bullion and
  3. Jewellery

Aside from that, there are sovereign gold bonds, gold mutual funds, and gold exchange-traded funds to consider.

What is the Process of Creating Digital Gold?

Several mobile apps, such as Wizely, Paytm, Google Pay, and PhonePe, allow you to invest in digital gold. Digital gold investing is also available through HDFC Securities and Motilal Oswal.

In India, there are currently three companies that sell digital gold:

1. Augmont Gold Ltd.

2. MMTC-PAMP India Pvt. Ltd. is a joint venture between state-run MMTC Ltd. and Swiss firm MKS PAMP.

3. Digital Gold India Pvt/ Ltd with its SafeGold brand.

Metal trading businesses SafeGold and MMTC PAMP use apps and websites like Wizely, Paytm, G-Pay, and others to create a platform. These trading organisations buy an equivalent amount of physical gold in your name and store it in secure vaults after investing in digital gold.
