You don’t have to really have any worry as MMTC guarantees the gold and it is a government sponsored institution. This problem is overcome by MMTC-PAMP sponsored Digital Gold. Every gram of digital gold that is issued will be backed by actual physical gold to the extent of 100% of the quantity of gold issued. That means there is no proportionate risk for you at any point of time in future. The logical next question could be what about segregating of the gold and the Chinese Walls around them. Digital Gold issued by MMTC-PAMP has an answer to that too. The gold backing your Digital Gold has been secluded in a dedicated vault and the gold has been insured with the entire cost of insurance being borne by MMTC. Hence your risk of loss is virtually zero! So, if you are looking to buy gold then digital gold can really be a good option for you.
