Introducing OZFT and its unique features
OZFT, launched by Ougon Zakura FT, a Japanese financial services company, provides users with a reliable and convenient means of asset management and inflation hedging. Each OZFT token is pegged to the value of 1 gram of gold, offering investment characteristics similar to physical gold. What sets OZFT apart is its inclusion of a small payment function, distinguishing it from similar products in the market.
To ensure the stability and value of OZFT, the token’s issuer will purchase physical Swiss Gold equivalent to the number of tokens sold through XT.COM from Degussa Sonne/Mond Goldhandel Ltd. The physical gold will then be deposited and safely stored by Degussa Sonne/Mond Goldhandel Ltd. Token holders will have the right to demand redemption at a price reflecting the market value of the physical Swiss Gold. However, requesting the return of the deposited physical gold will not be possible. The total issuance of the token is capped at a quantity equivalent to 950 billion yen (100 million OZFT), with the possibility of increasing it in the future while prioritizing user interests and transaction stability.
