Company Purpose & Problem-Solving Ideas:

Tiberius Coin is a commodity based cryptocurrency that manages and trades metal resources.

Tiberius Group is a commodity trading & asset management company with the sole purpose of providing a direct connection & rights of these resources to the participants with the transparency of the blockchain. The resources are stored within a warehouse that is amply secured, insured, and audited regularly by PwC. Tiberius has mentioned that all metal will be bought from London Metals Exchange (LME) to ensure the quality, purity, origin, and the necessary quantities needed for their consumers.

What makes Tiberius Coin different than other asset-backed cryptocurrencies is that they have a diversified portfolio of assets instead of harbouring a single asset. Future usage of this asset class is expected to increased as a result of projected demand in industries such as Transportation, IOT, Telecommunications, Robotics and Space Exploration.

Tiberius Coin has an intrinsic value based on its correlated relationship with the underlying physical assets. Read more about the relationship here.


  • Tiberius Asset Management AG the parent company is an existing & fully operational company since 2005. Existing branches includes Tiberius Digital Mining (2012), Tiberius ComTech (2016) and Tiberius Coin (2017)
  • Released white paper and Proof of Concept for Metal baskets in Q1 2018
  • Updated Website & Released key details for Tiberius Coin conversion to Metals
  • Pre-Sale concluded in mid-June with 2M USD raised.

Token Usage:

Each Tiberius Coin is associated to a distinctive tech metal basket that will be available shortly after the main sale. These metals are:

  • Technology metals – Copper & Tin
  • Electric Vehicle metals – Cobalt, Nickel & Aluminium
  • Stability metals – Gold & Platinum

Tiberius Coin could be suitable for both private and commercial participants since metal, as a resource, can be invested short term or long term. This gives family offices and /or high-net worth individuals an asset that holds value over time. Stability metals have been chosen to lower the cost of carry and decrease volatility. The use of gold also provides enhanced liquidity and protection against currency and inflation risk.

Participants have a few different options when they receive their tokens. They can cancel the token out (token is burned) and redeem the resources or choose to store it within the warehouse. If you are unable to receive the physical commodity then you have the option to sell the token at a higher value to another interested party. Additionally, participants may also hold these tokens for future growth and value.
