That price becomes the floor price of the coin for the next month. The Bankcoin Reserve Coin is a market price ‘taker’ not a market price ‘maker’ meaning the gold price determines the price of the coin. The Bankcoin Reserve current price is published on the Homepage of the Bankcoin Reserve website.
