Lehman Brothers 2008: employees running

Financial crisis of 2008 and bank failures

The 2008 crisis revealed the weakness of the banking system and its practices which pose a threat to the global economy: the big international banks were largely responsible for the crisis. The collapse of Lehman Brothers pointed the finger at a major problem: there are so-called "systemically important" banks whose failure could lead to new and far-reaching crises, or even monetary losses for their clients. Yes, European clients have already had their accounts tapped into in order to bail out their banks!

Bank run in Greece

Bank runs prevented in Cyprus and Greece

Europe has been having a hard time of it… In 2013, to avoid a collapse, the Cypriot State froze accounts worth more than €100,000 at the two largest banks in the country (Bank of Cyprus and Laiki). All banks in the country were subsequently shut down for 12 days to prevent massive withdrawals by the whole population as a result of panic. It was Greece's turn in 2015 to be on the brink of implosion: cash machine withdrawals were limited to €60 per day for a full week.

Hidden fees and opaque exchange rates

At the end of the month, when going through our bank accounts, we sometimes discover unexpected debit lines: service fees, monthly fees, subscription fees and more. Although the amount per month may only be a few cents, we sit by, powerless, as we watch our money disappear. And when you travel abroad, the banks systematically take a hidden commission called a "spread", included in their exchange rates.

Large-scale money laundering and tax fraud

Do big international banks feel a sense of impunity? It seems that the colossal fines imposed since 2008 still do not act as a deterrent.

A non-bank account for protection against future crises

VeraCash is not a bank, but rather a FinTech (financial technology) company whose business it is to convert physical assets into digital currency outside the traditional financial system. VeraCash does not "put your gold to work" to make a profit. Instead, the precious metals are stored in vaults and are your exclusive property, meaning that, in the event of a bank crash, your capital will in no way be affected, as it is completely separate from that system.

Banks and cash machines closed? No need to panic!

The VeraCash payment card is a Mastercard like any other. If banks and/or cash machines are closed in a particular geographic area, VeraCash cards won't work either. However, thanks to an innovative solution, you can "transfer" VeraCash currency instantaneously, anywhere in the world.

Icon transparency

Demand account transparency

At VeraCash, integrity, stability and transparency are in our DNA. For example, we guarantee our inventory of precious metals down to the gram, by means of independent annual audits. And because those values are important to us, our company works actively to prevent fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing.

Icon pricing

Clear pricing

With VeraCash, there are no hidden fees: no surprises, no complicated price schedule and no conditions buried in a footnote. It's all there for you to see. In fact, you simply pay for the purchase of precious metals and fees if your account has been inactive for more than six months, but you pay no commissions on debit transactions. And if you travel abroad, just compare your transactions using your VeraCash card and your classic bank card to see the difference!
