How To Display Multiple Currencies

For your convenience, iGolder displays the value of a weight of gold in multiple fiat currencies.  Just move the mouse over an amount and you will see a tooltip displaying the value of gold in other currencies.

Also, when you send a gold payment, iGolder displays a calculator to display the market exchange rate.  You may type a value in a fiat currency and iGolder will calculate the weight of gold.

iGolder Web Services

iGolder will return the value of all fiat currencies you have chosen.  For instance, the web service <SubAccountGetBalance> will return the following:


<SubAccountBalance> <AvailableGold>666.550</AvailableGold> <FrozenGold>47.880</FrozenGold> <TotalGold>714.430</TotalGold> <TotalUSD>23157.82</TotalUSD> <TotalEUR>15814.94</TotalEUR> <TotalGBP>14380.53</TotalGBP> <Date>2009-09-30 09:51:38</Date> <Name>Bob</Name> </SubAccountBalance>


iGolder displays the value of gold in other currencies for your convenience.  Please bear in mind the exchange rate of currencies is constantly changing, so the gold value in a given fiat currency may change at any moment.



Since August 1st, 2013 iGolder is no longer accepting new accounts and balances can only be redeemed. During the past years, we have been recommending Bitcoin more than our own payment system. We believe in physical gold ownership, and developed iGolder as a mechanism for people to acquire physical gold by trading with one another.

Since iGolder has a central point of failure (our server may be raided by thugs wearing some kind of uniform), we feet it is safer for us to cease operations. The iGolder experiment has been personally rewarding as we met many gold enthusiasts and also learned about Bitcoin in the process. For those who have no idea what Bitcoin is, we recommend doing your own research. Bitcoin is far superior to iGolder in every way, both in privacy and security as our server is always vulnerable to confiscation. Bitcoin is a communication protocol with a built-in "escrow service" capable of protecting both the buyer and the seller, rendering our Safetransit completely redundant. To learn more about the Bitcoin protocol and its feature, please watch " (Bitcoin 2012 London: Mike Hearn).

For those having gold in their iGolder account, we will ship the physical metal to anyone having more than 1 ounce of gold, assuming the owner is willing to assume the shipping costs. For smaller quantities, we offer to settle in Bitcoin, however we will also settle with any other reasonable payment system. We will give everyone at least two full years (until 2016) to contact us to claim their gold. After that period, any unclaimed gold will go to fund an economic development project in Honduras helping local people to become entrepreneurs.

We sincerely wish you the best in life and hope to keep in contact with you.

Yours in liberty,
The iGolder Team.

Update 2014: Since we announced we no longer accept gold transfers, we have received countless emails asking to keep the free gold charts and the PGP encryption tools. We plan to keep running the domain for both the gold charts and the encryption tools. Better, we are developing state of the art open-source software for a secure decentralized social network with a built-in wallet. We will announce when we have a product ready for use. Stay tuned!
