Zurich, 2nd March 2018: Degussa Goldhandel AG, based in Zurich, is the first precious metal trader in Switzerland to accept cryptocurrencies as means of payment. Due to the increasing demand, particularly from institutional investors, for the ability to reallocate digital currency stocks to physical gold bars and other precious metals, these clients now have the option to pay at Degussa with Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Portfolio managers, family offices and other larger investors, in particular, have shown a growing interest in the new service for some time.

„Due to numerous inquiries from large-scale investors, who own or manage crypto-money and would like to diversify the portfolio with the „safe haven“ gold, we decided to accept digital currencies and thus to offer investors additional investment options“, states Andreas Hablützel, CEO of Degussa. „We believe cryptocurrencies and the associated blockchain technology is characterised by freedom, security and independence – values which we generally associate with Switzerland as a financial centre, as well as with gold“, continues Hablützel.

In the second phase, probably starting mid-year, private customers will also have the option to use cryptocurrencies to pay for precious metals in the online shop of Degussa Switzerland. Degussa AG already offers cryptocurrency owners the option to store their crypto codes (paper wallets), which are necessary for a crypto transaction, securely in a safe deposit box outside the banking sector.

Digital currencies and the related economic sector are gaining in significance in Switzerland, as can be observed, for example, in the so-called „Crypto Valley Zug“, and are also receiving political support.

Precious metals as well as cryptocurrencies differ in comparison with legal tender, as they cannot be produced in any required number and also are independent from economic policy interventions.

Degussa Goldhandel AG Switzerland is part of the Degussa Group. Degussa Goldhandel GmbH in Germany, Degussa Metales Preciosos in Spain and the London precious metal trader Sharps Pixley also belong to this group.

The name Degussa is synonymous with quality and durability like no other in the world of precious metals. Since 2012, the newly founded Degussa Goldhandel AG has been active on the Swiss precious metals market with branches in Zurich and Geneva as well as an online shop. As an internationally operating company handling gold, silver and platinum metals, Degussa has become the market leader among bank-independent precious metal traders in Europe.

Furthermore, Degussa maintains eleven branches in Germany as well as sites in Madrid and London. In addition to bars, coins and numismatics and gold gifts, customers have online shops and services available to them, such as, for example, buying old gold and the secure storage of valuables in a personal safe deposit box.

The Degussa Group achieved a customer turnover of around two billion Swiss francs in 2017. The number of employees increased from 150 in 2016 to over 160 in 2017.

Zurich/ Geneva, 25 June 2015 – Degussa Goldhandel AG Switzerland has opened a branch office in Geneva and, with its head office in Zurich, is therefore now represented in the two largest cities in Switzerland. Close to the waterside promenade at Lake Geneva, Degussa will from now on offer its customers the entire range of its goods and services, from investment products such as gold bars and coins to limited-edition plaques and gift products. Safe-deposit boxes in seven different sizes are available in a highly-modern depot for the safe storage of precious metals and other valuables – irrespective of whether they were purchased at Degussa.

Andreas Hablützel, CEO of Degussa Goldhandel AG says: „For us as the largest bullion dealer in Switzerland, the city of Geneva is an ideal location for our second branch office because of its significance as a financial metropolis, its high internationality and its central geographic position. We see a high potential demand, not only in the area of bullion investment, but also for our gift products such as for example pieces of jewellery, silver pens and our exclusive collection of gold watches.“

Hablützel adds that the opening of the new branch office in Geneva is also entirely consistent with the international expansion strategy of the parent company, the Degussa Goldhandel group. The group is now the market leader in Europe and has offices in Germany, Switzerland, London and Madrid. „We are also focusing more on developing global markets, for example in Asia and South America; accordingly a Degussa branch in Singapore will be opening this summer“, says Hablützel.

Degussa“s Geneva office also offers its full range of physical bullion. Investment bars and coins in gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium are available in a variety of weight categories. A specially designed salesroom in the shop is dedicated to the wide range of gift products and presents the different products clearly. Customers also have the opportunity to purchase special motif bars and limited-edition medals as well as special collections and numismatic coins. Customers can also have their old gold, for example pieces of jewellery that they no longer wear, valued by Degussa experts and if they wish they can sell them directly on-site.

The branch office is located at Quai du Mont-Blanc 5. It is open from Monday to Friday from 09:00 hrs to 17:00 hrs and can be contacted by telephone on +41 (0)22 908 14 00.
