Are my gold holdings audited?

Yes, Vaultoro publishes a real-time anonymised ledger of all members holdings and the sum of all vaultoro  holdings. This ledger can be audited by everyone to check if their holdings on the audit page match their holdings. The Audit page can be checked when logged out so we never know who is checking and when making it impossible for us to fiddle the numbers.

Vaultoro also requires a full 3rd party audit. The gold in the Vault is audited every 6 months by one of the largest and most reputable auditing firms in the world (BDO international), who follow and perform ISA standards in auditing to ensure that our vault operator is in full reserve. This BDO audit certificate can be checked by every client because it is also published on the Vaultoro website.

Vaultoro's vault operator, Pro Aurum, sends a confirmation of Vaultoro's gold holdings whenever about once a week. This document is published on the audit page.
