A passive yield on physical gold and silver bullion, securely stored in our world-class vaults, without charge. It’s that simple.
Through sharing transaction fee revenue with users, Kinesis has transformed gold and silver into yield-bearing assets.
Unlike debt-based yields, Kinesis’ fee-sharing yields have zero risk attached and will always remain positive.
Kinesis users can earn a yield on their holdings while avoiding the primary expense of storing gold and silver.
All precious metals are securely held within the insured vaults of Kinesis’ parent company, ABX.
How do I earn the Holder’s yield?
All Kinesis gold (KAU) and Kinesis silver (KAG) held in your Kinesis Money account automatically qualify for the Holder’s yield from the moment of purchase.
Take a look at our easy-to-follow yield walkthrough tutorial, where Kinesis provides a step-by-step guide to help you understand the dashboard feature.
The Holder’s yield is designed to reward Kinesis users for holding gold and silver with Kinesis. In order to be eligible for the Holder’s Yield, all you need to do is purchase and hold/ store Kinesis Gold (KAU) or Silver (KAG) in the Kinesis Money Account or any wallet linked to it. You can acquire your KAU and KAG in the process of minting, buying at the Kinesis Exchange, receiving a transfer or even as your previous yield payout.
Yes, all Kinesis Yields, including the Holder’s Yield, are retroactive. You will have been credited with all qualifying yields accrued from the beginning of your activity, between the 4th April 2019 and the 30th September 2021.
15% of the Kinesis Master Fee pool is allocated to the Holder’s Yield fee pool. This 15% is then distributed to all system participants who are eligible for the Holder’s yield, in the proportion they have stored their KAU or KAG with Kinesis, as compared to other participants.
Holder’s Yield calculations are based on the ratio of gold or silver you have held on your Kinesis Money account (or linked wallet) versus the total amount all other Kinesis users have held in a period.
No, your Holder’s yield is calculated daily, so you will receive your yields for the exact amount of days you’ve been holding your KAU and KAG in your Kinesis Money account or a standalone wallet linked to your account.
You will receive a yield in gold on all qualifying Kinesis gold (KAU) you hold. Similarly, you will receive a Holder’s yield in silver on all qualifying Kinesis silver (KAG) you hold.
Holding your assets in your Kinesis Money account is not a necessity to receive Holder’s yield. KAU and KAG held in standalone wallets are still applicable for the yield as well. All external wallets must however be linked prior to the release of the Holder’s yield.
Although the vast majority of Kinesis users will be required to take no action, we still urge all participants to check that all their addresses are listed in the address linking widget on the platform.
No. you will receive Holder’s yield on your KAU and KAG only.
