ZENGOLD TOKENS EXPLAINED
ZNG is a digital currency developed with blockchain technology and is backed by gold reserves in Shanghai Gold Exchange vault. Users may transfer ZNG using Metaverse blockchain wallets without any special network conditions. Just like other digital currencies, ZNG is crypto-tech secured token, which generates lower transaction costs and has an ability to be used as a payment at any time. Each ZNG token represents one gram of Gold and is divisible into 0.0001 gram. 0.1% of the total value of each transaction is the fee paid by the users of the network and has a cap of 1 ZNG. For instance, User A sends a transaction worth 10 ZNG to user B, A would need to pay extra 0.01 ZNG as the transaction fee.
