Beware, large spreads on Gold and Silver

The recent turmoil has strongly affected the Bullion markets.
After the large price movements, liquidity in XAU/USD and XAG/USD has evaporated and this is causing wide spreads. Our provider price quotations strongly vary or may temporarily cease completely to be available. This can cause rejections and lead to slippage. We encourage our clients to use price control mechanisms of our software including place BID and place OFFER orders. This situation may endure or further deteriorate and we advise to trade with reduced exposures.

Dukascopy Bank passed recent market shocks successfully

Considering the general concerns about the financial situation of the market participants after the recent oil and stocks price drops as well as high volatility on the currency markets, Dukascopy Bank is reporting the following:
1. The YTD profit 2020 of Dukascopy Bank has hit a historical record (above 8 million CHF),
2. Eighty (80) negative accounts have appeared on the 9th of March 2020, totalling 340k USD which is in line with the Bank's risk appetite.

Dukascopy Bank will clear those negative accounts, at its expense, without asking any compensation from clients.

The Bank would like to reassure its clients and other business partners that Dukascopy Bank, Dukascopy Europe and Dukascopy Japan continue to be reliable and stable trading counterparties.

The first anniversary of the Dukascoin project.

28th of February, 2020 Dukascopy Bank SA is proud to celebrate the first anniversary of the Dukascoin project. One year ago, we have officially launched the first payment crypto coin issued for public use by a licensed and regulated Swiss bank. Today it’s time to look back and observe the way the project evolved during the first year.

First of all, we would like to accentuate the fact that the Dukascoin project significantly differs from any other cryptocurrencies offered to the audience so far. The Dukascoin’s uniqueness is not about the blockchain design complexity – on the contrary, we intentionally meant for it to remain simple, this is why we had picked a popular ERC-20 standard on the Ethereum blockchain and the Airdrop distribution concept of the token called DUK+. Issuance of new tokens is free of charge and limited to new Multi-currency accounts opening at Dukascopy Bank, whereby each new client gets 5 DUK+ for free and an equal amount will be granted to a referrer if any exists. The bank itself receives 10 new coins every time a new account is created. However, the key feature of our project is the following: the Dukascoin simultaneously resides in two environments – in the blockchain and in the books of a regulated bank.

Currently near to 193 000 MCA account holders have received Dukascoins and almost 3 900 000 Dukascoins have been released. During the past year, Dukascoin holders used several available options to utilize the crypto received.

First of all, to sell and buy Dukascoins, the bank has created a secure internal marketplace that is designed as an easy-to-understand bulletin board which is linked to clients’ accounts at the bank. It allows posting conditional orders (providing liquidity) or picking the desired orders from other participants (using liquidity). All transactions executed on the internal marketplace are secured by the bank, so the client should not worry about receiving the expected value when the transaction is accepted by a third-party. More than 1 500 000 Dukascoins have changed hands in the internal marketplace during the last year and the exchange rate has quadrupled from its low at 0.5 EUR per 1 Dukascoin in June of 2019 to the high of more than 2 EUR for 1 DUK+ in January and February 2020.  

To support the Dukascoin’s liquidity, the bank has developed a special program to remunerate large providers of liquidity and created the Dukascoin holders Fat Catz club. Nearly 24 000 EUR have been distributed between Dukascoin Fat Catz as of April 2019.

Also, the bank offers a system of significant rewards motivating Dukascoins savings. Rewards are based on both crypto and fiat currencies. 91 clients so far have decided to sample alternative crypto savings! 

 

Every visitor of the Dukascoin website can track
the project’s performance on-line via the dedicated web-page
https://www.dukascoin.com/?lang=en&cat=inf&page=statistics

  

Last but not least. Dukascopy Bank has literally launched the Dukascoin into the space!

We have introduced the Silver Dukascoin: a silver coin, issued in limited quantity, created to evidence the right of a legitimate holder to receive a Gratification bonus paid by Dukascopy Bank in crypto Dukascoins.

2 series of the Silver Dukascoins are waiting for their new owners:

  • SPACE: the rare series with the highest numismatic and Gratification bonus value of 250 Dukascoins. Only 65 pieces have been minted, launched into the open space and successfully returned to Earth on November 22nd 2019 in Spaceport America – USA-based and first private spaceport in the world;
  • SKY: a limited series minted to memorialize the historical event of the launch of the first cryptocurrency issued by a regulated Swiss bank. Silver Dukascoins of this series bear a Gratification bonus value of 50 Dukascoins and are available for public usage as a physical proof of the right to receive the Gratification bonus.

 

We congratulate all our clients and crypto enthusiasts
of the world with the anniversary of the Dukascoin project!

One Year. So far so good!

Silver Dukascoin: The Crypto in Space

On November 22nd 2019 at 15:19 GMT a historical event took place. The first physical embodiment of a virtual cryptocurrency had been launched into Space. The crypto-currency which dared such a feat was the Dukascoin: the first cryptocurrency ever issued by a regulated bank – Dukascopy Bank SA. With a speed of 5.5 Mach, the batch of 65 exclusive silver coins minted from 999 Pure Silver had reached a height of 301304 feet. It was launched from Spaceport America, located in New Mexico, USA. Later that same day, the space capsule with 65 silver coins returned to Earth. The video report is available here.

Today, Dukascopy Bank is proud to announce that the silver Dukascoins which were launched into space and successfully returned to Earth are available for order. The buyer will benefit from a rare numismatic value and the opportunity to receive a significant Gratification bonus of 250 DUK+. Each Silver Dukascoin Set will consist of the silver Dukascoin with a unique number and a Certificate of Origin containing the same unique number, signed by the CEO of Dukascopy Bank. You can take a look at the photo gallery here . The intrinsic value of the Silver Dukascoin lies in the fact that it is the physical proof of the right to receive the Gratification bonus under the conditions of the Silver Dukascoin Bonus Program. Please read the conditions on the dedicated website www.dukascoin.com/silver/

2 series of the Silver Dukascoin were minted in a limited number of 1000 pieces for both series. The first 65 Silver Dukascoins belong to the special SPACE series minted from 999 Pure Silver and launched into Space. This is a series of rare coins which have been seasoned by uncovered Solar winds and which offer a substantial Gratification bonus of 250 DUK+.

In addition to the SPACE series, the Bank minted 935 silver Dukascoins of the SKY series. These Dukascoins are minted from 925 Fine Silver to memorialize a historical event which happened on February 28th 2019, when a regulated Swiss bank was the first Bank in the world to issue a cryptocurrency. The Gratification bonus for the SKY series Silver Dukascoin holders is 50 DUK+.

The Bank is offering the Silver Dukascoin while respecting the Reference price. The formula of the Reference price is the following:

  1. For the SPACE series: 100 EUR (cost of production) + 300 EUR (cost of launch to space) + current market price of 250 Dukascoins quoted on the Dukascopy marketplace (BID+ASK divided by two).
  2. For the SKY series: 100 EUR (cost of production) + current market price of 50 Dukascoins quoted on the Dukascopy marketplace (BID+ASK divided by two).

Clients willing to buy the Silver Dukascoin of the SPACE series should have more than 10000 Dukascoins on their multi-currency account (deposits included) with Dukascopy Bank at the moment of the purchase request. As well 10 000 and more Dukascoins may be allocated on the any blockchain account and/or on the account with partnering cryptoexchange. For the SKY series, there is no minimum required amount.

Dukascopy Bank created the following key features intended to protect the Silver Dukascoin holder’s rights and assist them in transfers of those rights to other persons:

  1. The Bank maintains a register of legitimate Silver Dukascoin holders for all series. Transfer of the Silver Dukascoin from person to person will be reflected in the Public Register.
  2. Dukascopy Bank can offer a safekeeping service to the Silver Dukascoin owner who is a multi-currency account holder. The coin can be safely stored in the vault located on the Bank’s premises. In case of transfer of ownership (sale) of such a coin to another multi-currency account holder, the Bank can secure the deal for both parties.

Clients can book the silver Dukascoin with a particular number from the “Available in the Bank” section by sending a written request.

Dukascopy Bank invites readers to get acquainted with details of the offer and complete the order form on www.dukascoin.com/silver/.

The Silver Dukascoin Set is available for order starting from now. The delivery of the set to clients will start in January, 2020.

High-resolution images of the Silver Dukascoin Set and the video of the space launch are available in the Dukascoin media-kit.

The fiat Reward Deposit program remains available for clients for the second year as well with the same reward rate: 50 euro cents for each allocated Dukascoin. The minimum deposit amount will continue raising by 1 000 DUK+ every month until it reaches the 20 000 DUK+ threshold in October 2020:

  • 11 000 DUK+ - January 2020;

  • 19 000 DUK+ - September 2020;
  • 20 000 DUK+ - October 2020 and until the end of the year.

Please consider adjusting your plans regarding your participation in the Dukascoin reward programs taking into account the announced changes for the coming year.
