The RealUnit is a proven way of preserving purchasing power over the long term. It is predominantly backed by real assets, such as precious metals or investments in companies with strong balance sheets and sustainable earnings. At least half of the invested assets are held physically and securely outside the banking system in Switzerland. This provides increased security, crisis resistance and protects investors against inflation-related losses and against economic and financial crises. Already today, the RealUnit can be held not only as a traditional share, but also as a share token on the Ethereum Blockchain.

Whenever new money is injected into the economy, the value of preexisting money is diluted and the purchasing power of anyone who saves in these currencies is erroded. In such an environment, a savings account that generates no meanignful interest is not a viable option. As the prices of everyday goods and scarce commodities are constantly climbing higher and higher, your savings are steadily losing purchasing power.
