ABOUT

Goldma is combining the best attributes of gold and cryptocurrency. Thus, it resolves the issue of cryptocurrency not having 'intrinsic value' by tying it to gold. But, we've taken it a bit further in our model. We are not storing any gold. We are immediately selling the gold to the Reserve Bank and buying Ether with the cash that we are paid. So, we don't have to worry about the security aspect of storing the gold. Our value is immediately digitized onto the blockchain which enables the commodification of gold and overcome the volatility of cryptocurrency which will allow smaller investors to partake in the gold mining sector. So, you are not saving to just save your value (in some vault), you are actually saving to earn a return! Whether the market goes up or down it allows us to give our GMA token holders a 5% royalty (in the form of Ether) every quarter. You do the math - how much is that annually? Goldma (Gold Mining Assets, GMA) operates several gold mining claims already producing and purchasing thousands of grams of gold per year.
Our project aims to
1) Decentralize the opportunity to invest in multi-million dollar gold mining projects;
2) Enable anyone to inexpensively and securely transfer value anytime, anywhere
3) Store value in an asset backed cryptocurrency;
4) Allow companies and investors a means of receiving and remitting investment/royalties/dividends anywhere, anytime without the barriers of cash
5) provide a means of GMA token holders to earn royalties on their investment into our gold mining company

Keith Teare

Executive Chair at Accelerated Digital Ventures; entrepreneur; investor; writer

I am Executive Chairman and Chair of the Investment Committee at Accelerated Digital Ventures (http://accelerated.ventures).

Previously I was founder and a partner at Archimedes Labs (http://archimedeslabs.com) in Palo Alto, California and founding shareholder at TechCrunch.

I served as chairman of the Board at Minds and Machines Inc (London AIM - MMX), and was an Advisory Board member at MedCo (now escrips). I was also an Advisory Board member at Verisign.

I love working with founders, teams, designers and engineers to create products, tell stories, and turn them into reality. Archimedes has had over 20 companies that I mentored and guided.

I have founded or co-founded many companies myself since the early 1980s. Some were successfully sold, others IPO'd.

Two of my companies were Unicorns - valued by others at more than $1 billion (EasyNet and RealNames). They span enterprise software with hundreds of customers (cScape/Clerkswell) ISPs and consumer web with millions (EasyNet/RealNames), Mobile (chat.center).

I have always focused on the point at which change is happening. In the 1980's networking and databases (cScape). In the 1994-1998 period, Internet Access (EasyNet and Cyberia). From 1998-2010 - Web Services and Content (RealNames) and since 2010 Mobile Consumer Applications (chat.center. M.dot, Quixey and Archimedes Labs).

I am proud of my work - successes and learning failures alike. I learned a great deal from each. I have had to deal with Investors, boards, partners, customers; advertisers and their agencies, bankers; Governments; Organizations and Institutions. I have served on many boards. I have managed small teams of 2 or 3 and larger teams of over 300.

Above all else, I have been privileged to work with great people whilst doing what I love - making change a positive experience.
