Gold Standard DAO — NFT Launch

What is an NFT?

NFT stands for “Non-Fungible Token.”, an NFT is a digital asset that links ownership to unique physical or digital items, such as works of art, real estate, music, or videos.

NFTs can be considered modern-day collectibles. They’re bought and sold online and represent a digital proof of ownership of any given item. NFTs are securely recorded on a Blockchain which ensures the asset is one-of-a-kind. The technology can also make it difficult to alter or counterfeit NFTs.

NFTs backed by Gold

As part of the Gold Standard ecosystem, the protocol protocol is launching soon its own collection of NFTs backed by gold.

The design of the first series of NFTs will be gold masks. Masks give an identity to a world of users that have none, without revealing their face.

Down the track, will get quotes from real world sculptures on creating the masks in real world, the quotes will be sold as NFT power ups.

If you purchase the quote NFT you can redeem it and actually mint your mask in real life with serial numbers engraved.


  • The 1st series of NFTs will be golden masks, each individually designed and 1 of 1.
  • To purchase a golden exclusive mask, users will need to pay with GSD.
  • Once masks have been bought, they will be assigned the rights from the GSD used to purchase the mask with.
  • Users will then stake their golden masks with the Gold Standard platform to earn fees from their masks.
