Features

Kinesis introduces yield-bearing digital currencies based 1:1 on allocated physical gold (KAU currency) and silver (KAG currency). The Kinesis currencies offer a unique yield system to encourage adoption and stimulate use. When KAU and KAG are transferred between holders the network collects a 0.45% fee that is then accumulated and distributed monthly, in varying proportions, to participants in the Kinesis Monetary System as a yield.

ABSTRACT

With the evolution of blockchain, cryptocurrencies and mobile devices, participants in the global economy have been presented with a profound opportunity: a chance to apply ingenious creativity to money and to be part of an empowering peoplecentric revolution. Yet, despite this opportunity, current blockchain payment systems and their cryptocurrencies have suffered from severe price volatility, limiting their holder’s desire to be used as tender. This makes many of these mediums unsuitable for commercial exchange.

The Kinesis Monetary System is specifically designed to overcome these drawbacks through the development of a universally adopted, decentralized, asset-backed monetary system. A monetary system that is efficient, secure, fair, and incentivizes commercial exchange. This system combines new world decentralized technology with the oldest, fairest, and most sustainable form of money, to empower and serve the interests of us all equally and capitalistically.

This paper outlines our vision and philosophy behind the Kinesis Monetary System, detailing the core components and products supporting its innovative ecosystem. More importantly, analysis is provided that specifically highlights Kinesis’ unique currency specifications and quantitatively proves the concept behind our incentivized multifaceted yield system. These features differentiate Kinesis as a stable, useful, secure, and rewarding platform to facilitate commerce.

Vision

The vision for Kinesis is to deliver an evolutionary step beyond any monetary system available in the world today. A system that through participation, enhances money as both a store of value and as a medium of exchange, for the benefit of all. Much the same as our sun unconditionally delivers an indiscriminate share of energy to planet Earth that stimulates life, we see Kinesis as a comparative energy system to stimulate the movement of money, assets, commerce, and economic activity in a fair, honest, and rewarding process.

Mission

The mission of the Kinesis monetary system is to deliver an internationally fungible monetary system, designed to give back to those who participate, and thus, create a solution for the global need for sound, reliable money. It is understood that for sound money to be a successful global transaction currency against legal tender currencies, Sir Thomas Gresham’s economic principle that “bad money drives out good” must be defeated. This is an observation of human behaviour and money where people who value one currency over another will hold onto and hoard the more valued tender, while spending the currency they value less. Similarly, given cryptocurrency market volatility, it is often a crypto-holder’s view that their crypto-assets will rise in value or that they must hold on to them to wait for prices to recover. As a result, there is no incentive for that token to be used as a medium of exchange, thus promoting hoarding behaviour

Kinesis Monetary System

Kinesis, in its world changing mission, embraces and rewards the use of its own currency, stimulating the movement of capital, acting as a system that encourages commerce and economic activity. Core to the mechanics of the system is the perpetual incentive and stimulus for money velocity. Outside capital is attracted into Kinesis via a very attractive risk/return ratio and then put into highly stimulated movement. This is achieved through giving money 1:1 direct allocated asset backing and then attaching a unique multifaceted yield system that promotes exchange and fairly shares the wealth generated by the Kinesis Monetary System according to participation and capital velocity.

The primary elements of Kinesis are:

  • Gold & Silver – Kinesis’ primary currencies are backed 1:1 with allocated physical gold & silver, the greatest stable and definable stores of value for use in commercial and private transactions and investment. Allocated means that full direct title to the bullion used for the 1:1 backing of KAU and KAG coins is allocated to the owner of the respective coin.
  • Yield - A perpetually recurring yield generated from economic activity, not from debt-based interest like fiat currency. Provides definable value via Net Present Value (NPV) calculations for use in commercial, institutional and retail investment.
  • Blockchain & Cryptocurrency Technology - Enhanced by asset-backed currency and multifaceted yield system
  • The Kinesis system can be overlaid on top of anything that can be standardized, traded, and stored as value. Accordingly, we are developing a kinetically charged cryptocurrency suite with allocated title of bullion, fiat banknotes, cryptocurrencies, and other assets that are secured physically and digitally stored in our allocated Kinesis banking and asset management system. By attaching a yield to currency or asset tokens, risk/return ratios can be forecasted and virtually all currency and investment asset markets can be targeted and infiltrated. As such, over time we plan for more currencies and assets to be added, ultimately infiltrating more markets spread across the world. This form of currency has necessary real-world application in both commerce and private transactions, along with attracting capital from institutional and retail investors as well as savers.

    Kinesis will attract capital from markets that are currently experiencing little or comparatively low yields. These include:

  • Cryptocurrency Markets
  • Gold & Silver Markets
  • Fiat Currency Markets
  • Investment Asset Markets
  • Given the Kinesis Monetary System’s stability and security, participating in the Kinesis system is inherently less risky than these alternative markets and offers potentially greater return. Furthermore, where banks conversely hold legal title of their customer’s deposits and can put these deposits at risk through highly leveraged lending strategies, the Kinesis Monetary System allocates title directly to the ultimate beneficial owner. Thus, at its core, Kinesis is a monetary system focused on minimizing risk, maximizing return, stimulating velocity, and maximizing the rate of adoption.
