The minimum transaction size is 0.000001, and a transaction fee will be charged to the sender with a minimum transaction fee of 0.000001 GoldZIP token. And the gas fee is fixed at 0.3 VSYS per transaction.
It can be redeemed to gold bars in one kilogram denominations at a rate of 1000 tokens to one bar, and the redemption process takes place in Singapore. Token holders applying for the redemption need to pass AML and KYC checks. GoldZIP wallet is available both on iOS and Android and runs on the V Systems blockchain.
Looking forward, V Systems will continue work on building ecosystems around GoldZIP, including cross-chain interoperability, decentralized exchange, trading, investment, and payment solutions.

As we see institutional usage growthing on the blockchain technology, and customized smart contracts, being the layer one blockchain infrastructure, we will be able to build more customized smart contract solutions. We have solutions for the whole ecosystem, marketplace, payments, even options and escrows.”
