According to the Bengaluru-based company,  it weeds out barriers in traditional gold investment, such as storage, purity assurance, and liquidity issues. A part of the proceeds will also be used for hiring engineers, customer service executives and others.

Plus Gold is operating in a crowded market as a bunch of well-funded companies have been operating in the space. At present, the online gold investment segment is dominated by PayU and Alpha Wave-backed Indfiagold, Rupeek, Oro Money and Tiger Global investee Jar among others. Large fintechs including PhonePe also added gold buying offering to their app.
