Harald Seiz


Harald Seiz was born in 1963 in Calw near Stuttgart, Germany and has been successfully working as a financial consultant since 1982. In 2011 he founded the Karatbars International GmbH in Stuttgart, of which he is the managing director. Since then he has consistently and successfully internationalised the business.

In 2016, he was awarded the Senatorial Degree by the Federal. Association for Economic Development and Foreign Trade (BWA).

Harald Seiz founded in 2011 the company Karatbars International GmbH based in Stuttgart. With the KaratGold Coin Seiz created one of the first crypto currencies whose value is tied to the price of gold. In parallel with his business dealings with cryptocurrencies, Seiz is an advocate of the sustainability of gold as a means of payment. 


In 2016, he was commissioned by a study conducted by the Berlin Institute of Finance, Innovation and Digitalization (BIFID), where the authors concluded that in the event of a crisis of confidence in legal tender or IT blackout , gold would become an adequate and universally accepted means of payment.

In 2015, Seiz was awarded the honorary senatorial status of the Federal Association for Economic Development and Foreign Trade (BWA). 

The ceremony was soon followed by a delegation headed by Lothar de Maizière and Joschka Fischer to the southern Chinese province of Guangdong , where Seiz's company was presented as a business model to the relevant bodies .

Invest in the future

We are proud to present a dedicated blockchain-based payment system allows easy and highly secure transactions with which gold can be moved from A to B. It also provides the opportunity to trade gold in conjunction with crypto currencies without the need for shipping or personal receipt at the counter. Through Gold Standard Banking Cooperate AG the gold and gold products as well as many different tailor-made packages can be traded or purchased and traded on more than 500,000 acceptance points worldwide or on one of the top 10 listed crypto exchanges trading the KaratGold Coin (KBC).

Starting from 4th July, 2019, KBC investors can exchange 100 KBC tokens directly to 1g of pure gold, making it the first digital currency that is actually convertible to a truly valuable asset. This exchange possibility will be made possible as part of a global Karatbars International’s promotion campaign, the Gold Independence Days, so that users can easily receive real gold in the form of CashGold at Karatbars’ own ATMs.

"I have been an affiliate of Karatbars for the past 4 years, only working part-time at first. Hearing and seeing great things about the company gave me the push I needed to be free to spend time with my FAMILY and to do the things that I knew I could do, given the time freedom. Building a business with Karatbars has helped me to create and foster very close relationships that I cherish dearly to day. Our CEO Mr. Harald Seiz is a man of his word when he says he will deliver MAN he over deliver! I know that I can say that the entire Bahamas is forever grateful to him/his company and my team for the most enriching experience of my life!"
