After going through the journey since Moonfarm was born. After the cooperation with famous partners. Today we are pleased to announce that we will partner with Aurus — A special and novel company that is empowering the traditional precious metals industry with innovative blockchain-based solutions that facilitate ownership and enhance the usability of gold, silver, and platinum.

Inside Aurus system:

Aurus has created an ecosystem made up of refineries, vaults, and brokers that work together to autonomously mint their own precious metal-backed tokens: AurusGOLD (AWG), AurusSILVER (AWS), AurusPLATINUM (AWP). Aurus industry partners are incentivized to participate by receiving a portion of the revenues generated by AWG, AWS, AWP. The other revenues are distributed to the holders of a revenue-sharing token, AurusDeFi (AWX). It is a highly scalable, self-sustaining ecosystem that the entire precious metals industry can benefit from…

AurusDeFi (AWX) is a revenue-sharing token limited to a total supply of 30 million units. AWX derives 50% of the revenues generated by AurusGOLD and 30% by AurusSILVER, AurusPLATINUM. Therefore posing as a great way to invest in the future success of Aurus.

Initially, Moonfarm Finance will work with Aurus to marketing promotional products for each other, we will hold an AMA to promote the cooperation of 2 projects in both communities on Telegram channels. Additionally, Moonfarm Finance and Aurus can announce introductions and connect investors for each other. Furthermore, Moonfarm will open 3 special farming pools for the Aurus community as well as AWS tokens backed by silver, one of the most popular precious metals:

  1. AWS/ETH.
  2. AWS single vault.
  3. MFO earns AWX.
  4. AWX/ETH

Moonfarm will provide a special opportunity for MFO stakers the opportunity to own silver digital (each token is fully backed by, and redeemable for 1 gram of LBMA-accredited silver).

CeDeFi and yield aggregation are the future and we are proud to partner with Moonfarm Finance. Positioning precious metals as yield-bearing assets is a revolutionary innovation in itself.

Aurus is a representative of traditional precious metal storage companies, but using Blockchain technology is a whole new step.
