As of today, Aurica is distributing AurusGOLD margins above spot price, accompanied by a portable hardware wallet granting holders the highest form of security and control.

Francisco Leyton, Latam Lead of Aurus Technologies said: “With Aurica we are making gold more accessible and convenient for investors in Chile and in Latam. Now, people will be able to easily buy, store and transfer gold avoiding the hurdles of the physical world.”
