About Us

Our Mission

We are on a mission to champion the adoption and use of sound money, advocating for robust free-market monetary policies and fair trading practices for sound money-related assets. Through our legislative outreach division, we’re taking our advocacy to the next level, directly influencing policy at all levels of government.

Our Vision

Our vision is clear. We aim to create a world where sound money principles are standard, not an exception. By advocating for sound money, we strive to create a more stable and sustainable monetary system for future generations.

Why We Matter

Why does our mission matter? In an increasingly digital and global economy, the principles of sound money are more important than ever. Sound money provides a stable store of value, protects against inflation, and promotes economic prosperity for all.

Our Journey

Our journey began with a recognition of the critical role that sound money plays in our economy and our society. Our founders, experienced in the fields of finance, politics, and technology, saw an opportunity and seized it. They wanted to educate the public about the importance of sound money and, therefore, began to advocate for policies that support its use.
