ISDA General Questions

How should I go about inviting others?


Share the website(s): www.ISDASilver.org, www.iCovest.org, and www.G47Marketplace.com. Share your experience, and ask yourself, “How can I love my neighbor today?”




I see the currency is American Silver Eagles … Why isn’t anyone else doing this? It just seems too good to be true.


Silver, historically, is THE original form of money and it still holds the same value today, albeit coins are not as convenient as other forms of currency (but ISDA solves that issue).




What are a few reasons to have precious metals in my portfolio?


It stores value. It’s useful for exchange purposes and for wealth preservation, among other common benefits. A better question is, should the dollar fail, will you know what to do and do you have a sustainable plan? We do.




Why acquire precious metals now?


Beyond the common features and benefits of precious metals, there is a “war on cash”. Learn more about that here.




Does ISDA offer storage of precious metals?


Yes. However, only silver at this time, by invitation only.




What are the benefits of taking possession of silver vs. leaving it in the vault for safe keeping?


Traditional precious metal benefits apply. However, by taking possession, such coins are not eligible for Liberty Stewardship Awards. See why an assured international depository is safer.




Can my silver be confiscated from me?


Most likely, Yes, if you maintain possession in the same jurisdiction of your domain. Not as likely, if held outside your jurisdictional domain. Read more about Executive Order 6102 and IEEPA.




What are the hours of operation for live assistance?


Since the jurisdiction for the ISDA is European, if you can’t reach a live assistant, someone will respond to you within the 24 hours if you contact either through Chat Widget and/or email Support@ISDASilver.org




How is the ISDA/Grain House Initiative different from some other gold-related MLMs (e.g. Karatbars International)?


ISDA/G47 Marketplace is not an MLM, or a pyramid scheme, but is a storehouse so as to provide a secured base in preparation for the future – with American Silver Eagles (not gold), using a flat architecture and no down lines.




I'm new to bullion. Do you have anywhere that explains bullion terminology?


At this time, No, but most precious metals broker dealers (which we are not) do so. We do, however, provide privileged open-source intelligence reports (OSINT) for our ISDA/G47 Marketplace members. To get a taste of what we offer to our members, you can sign up for the ISDA AdvantEDGE and Foresight articles to receive additional information.




Why silver?


Silver is the earliest form of money. It’s portable, and it has been used as money throughout all of history. More specifically, American Silver Eagles are the most widely accept sovereign minted coin on earth. Silver’s qualities also make it useful in a large number of industrial applications, thus making it one of the few monetary metals that also enjoys a commodity-driven demand profile. Click here to read more about why silver and why now.




For one who already has some silver and gold bullion in various forms … does ISDA/G47 Marketplace accept other forms of bullion for storage and safe keeping?


Yes. However, at this time, the smallest value considered starts at $250,000. Contact the ISDA for private arrangements.




How do I sell or donate my bullion to ISDA/G47 Marketplace?


Not possible at this time, unless through one of our qualified ISDA/G47 Marketplace professional service providers. You can contact ISDA to get connected to a provider for more information.




How is the ISDA different than a stock exchange?


No investments are offered through ISDA/G47 Marketplace. It’s a matter of the heart vs. the wallet. The primary purpose of the ISDA is community development consistent with the IRS guidelines of the PRI and MRI whereby the primary purpose of one’s CoVestment is to further the social mission and purpose of the community (typically, a tax-exempt purpose) whereby the typical investor seeking a market rate return would otherwise pass on the opportunity.




Why haven't I heard of this before?


We’re looking for a certain kind of people. Our marketing is designed intentionally to demonstrate organic growth -- direct word of mouth by invitation, not multi-level marketing like an MLM. Someone thought enough of you to share … give thanks!




Who holds the "purse strings" to the ISDA/G47 Communal Treasury? Temptation abounds, especially with large sums of money. What form of accountability, checks, and balances, are in place to keep greed and human nature from ultimately taking over?


The ecclesiastical organization, Goodness & Mercy Unlimited Board of Directors (GMU) provides independent oversight and multiple built in accountability operations structures, including a two-signature approval process with at least 2/3rds majority on all stakeholder matters of fact.




Where is the silver stored?


The physical silver is non-commercially domiciled and recorded on ecclesiastical state distributed wealth ledger. Physically it is allocated and assigned to qualified Managing Intergrated Auxilliary Trusts around the world held secure storage location. The physical silver is subject to periodic inspection via internal and external audit performed by the G47 Global Initiative Board of Directors and ISDA Board of Directors, each comprised and seated from the participating community assemblies as their Locally Appointed Leadership.

This gives every participating community assurance as to the integrity of the ledger both digitally and physically as the ISDA Community Stabilization Fund continues to grow in size and strength.




Why isn’t the silver held at a bank-owned custodian?


Unlike most traditional silver funds, the ISDA holds its silver assets in custody within a sovereign ecclesiastical state. There is no levered financial institution between the beneficiaries and the trust’s physical silver, and thus, no risk of financial loss in the event of a bankruptcy or nationalization of the financial institution.




Why does the value of ASEs list at a premium to their Net Asset Value (NAV)?


Because of the unique features of the ISDA IVA, favorable tax treatment, and in many cases, tax avoidance with the toll-free road alternative, the ISDA ASEs have the potential to trade at a premium to its net asset value. This offers beneficiaries a unique opportunity to enjoy higher silver valuations as well as any market price increases relative to the NAV.




What are the typical risks associated with silver?


Regardless of the source, or where in the world it is held, silver is generally exposed to the following risks: fluctuation in silver price, fund expense risk, cash redemption risk, market price impact due to purchases, risk of losing good delivery status, secondary offering at below trading price, unpredictable trading price, future silver price may be lower, risk of asset sale to pay expenses, uninsured losses, invalid insurance claim, inadequate insurance held by service providers, currency risk for non-US unitholders, limited insurance recovery, losses relating to physical redemption, speculative investment, liquidity risk, limited recourse against bullion custodian, investment risk, redemption risk, bullion custodian risk, trust termination, premium/discount of trading price, suspension of redemption, competition from other silver buyers, sale of related assets, regulatory status, reliance on the manager, obligation to reimburse certain liabilities, no management by beneficiaries, limited beneficiary rights, investment by affiliates of the manager, changes in investment objective and restrictions, substantial redemption risk, currency risk, taxation risk, beneficiary may be liable for obligations, unenforceable actions or judgments.

Anyone interested in silver should be aware of such risks and have ample sufficiency to ask questions to their complete satisfaction before making an informed decision.




What is CoVesting?


CoVesting raises the bar of “crowd funding” with a communitive verb describing how two or more jointly, in creative partnership, endow (a person, group, committee, etc.) economic stewardship, functions, or rights, and to vest with power to increase production and/or intrinsic value of principal assets as entrusted unto its fiduciary care and responsibility for accountability and management. Learn more about CoVesting here.




What is an ICO?


The ICO is the digital currency of the ISDA/G47 Marketplace represented with the symbol below, equivalent to one American Silver Eagle (ASE) coin, comprised of one (1) ounce of .999 fine silver. 1 ICO = 1 ASE. The ICO aims to become THE Standard of digital currencies, replacing fiat-cryptocurrencies bringing back the concept of honest money.




What are the ISDA’s Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) reporting requirements?


The ISDA is classified as an Active Non-Financial Foreign Entity. As such, the ISDA is not subject to any U.S. FATCA registration or reporting.





G47 Marketplace

I do admin for our family enterprise … can more than one user have access to the account?


Yes. However, sharing login credentials carries a risk (that you assume responsibility for).




Since the point of exchange deals with silver, does this change the 'holding yourself out for commerce' equation?


No, but it could, depending on how you do it. Is your focus people-first … or yourself? And in which jurisdiction does it fall? For further education on this subject, contact your referring friend for guidance (or contact an ISDA Strategic Philanthropist).




Are there any limits to a minimum / maximum order?


The smallest unit is one ASE coin, though pricing is to the hundredths (ICOs) basically to the cent. There is no maximum order in terms of value at this time.




Why should I acquire silver through the ISDA and the G47 Marketplace vs. another dealer?


The ISDA and the G47 Marketplace are the only venues through which supporting the Grain House Initiative rewards the community for doing so. See the Liberty Stewardship Awards and related Honorable Rewards Policies for additional information.




May I convert the exchange component value of the IVA/G47 Marketplace Account Balance to another form of value (e.g. a G47 Silver Certificate or G47 Silver Card)?


Yes. See G47/ISDA Silver Certificate/Card Policies for additional information.




If 10% of every exchange goes to support the Grain House Initiative, how does the ISDA/G47 Marketplace cover the cost of administration?


The amounts involved to set up, get established and ongoing safekeeping and security (AUS) cover the administration costs (the amounts vary based on the type of membership you have, and are disclosed up-front). Once you’re in with silver, there are no further transaction fees or hidden fees, unless of course, you must redeem your silver back to local currency.




How much does the sponsoring/referring assembly benefit?


Many benefits! See the Liberty Stewardship Awards and related Honorable Rewards Policies for this information.




How do I subscribe to a monthly contribution to the Grain House Initiative?


On the G47 Marketplace membership plans – the individual PCM (Participating Community Member), and/or the SBM (Small Business Member) allow monthly subscriptions to the Grain House Initiative.




Does a portion of the monthly/annual ISDA AUS contribution go towards the Grain House Initiative, or is it allocated some other way?


Yes. 10% of these reoccurring contributions support the Grain House Initiative.




In regards to sponsorship: What is the most appropriate strategy and/or use of materials to sponsor other SBMs? What is the referral process to bring in new SBMs? What benefits are there, if any, to becoming a sponsoring assembly? What requirements and/or responsibilities are there to becoming a sponsoring assembly? Who can become a sponsoring assembly? Who is not eligible to become a sponsoring assembly?


In short, it comes down to relationship. If we can share some good news, express that there is hope, then there’s an integrated reward for those who are successful. See the Liberty Stewardship Awards and related Honorable Rewards Policies for additional information.




As a sponsoring assembly, is my church required to be organized as a 501(c)(3) (or tax-exempt equal) -or-, if not, must we divest ourselves of the federal franchise format?


No, you don’t have to be, and we do not encourage churches and ministries to be a federal franchise.




Is it possible to acquire a G47 Silver Certificate for the benefit of leaving the silver in the IVA/Grain House Initiative to be leveraged and redeemed at a later date?


Yes. See G47 Silver Certificate/Card Policies and related Honorable Rewards Policies.




Is there a penalty for redeeming a silver coin before reaching the Grain House Initiative goal of 1,000,000 coins?


No, there is not a penalty. However, redeemed coins are not eligible for Liberty Stewardship Awards. See related Honorable Rewards Policies.




Will my orders be reported to the IRS?


Generally, for those subject to the jurisdiction of the IRS, No (for amounts under 1,000 ASE coins for every occurrence). Possibly, for amounts over 1,000 ASE coins. And definitely, Yes, for those using qualified funds, pre-tax plans.




Why is a credit card required on every order I place with ISDA/G47 Marketplace even though I am technically using silver as the ISDA/G47 Marketplace Currency?


We’re working on a solution to that: a donor-advised, debit-only remittance/exchange type system (Point Of Exchange) to bridge the use of physical currency with the digital economy.




Is there a referral incentive program, and if so, how do I become an affiliate and learn more about it?


Yes. See related Honorable Rewards and Liberty Stewardship Awards Policies.




If I acquire silver coins from the ISDA/G47 Marketplace, does a tenth also go toward the Grain House Initiative, as if I were acquiring a bar of soap or other merchandise in the G47 Marketplace?


Yes, all point of exchanges on the ISDA/G47 Marketplace remit a 10% contribution to the “grainhouse”. Amounts equal or above $200 also qualify to be entered into the Liberty Stewardship Awards drawing as well.




By giving to support the Grain House Initiative, do I also have any rights (e.g. as in a donor-advised fund) to assign distributions to causes I am most passionate about?


Yes, there are several ongoing options for the donor to stay involved. You can contact us for instructions.




For what may G47 Silver Cards and/or G47 Silver Certificates be redeemed? And may they be used outside of the G47 Marketplace?


The G47 Silver Card/Certificate redemption can be for anything INSIDE the G47 Marketplace. No, for anywhere else. See G47 Silver Certificate/Card Policies for additional information.




If I have a G47 Silver Card or a G47 Silver Certificate and I lose it, does G47 guarantee its replacement at no additional cost to me?


No. You are solely responsible. See G47 Silver Certificate/Card Policies for additional information.




Do any fees apply to the use of G47 Silver Cards and/or G47 Silver Certificates?


No. See G47 Silver Certificate/Card Policies for additional information.




Where does the G47 Marketplace ship from?


G47 is not doing the shipping; it’s up to each of the SBMs to work out their own shipping, and they could be international.




Am I able to pick-up my order in person to save on shipping?


No, that is not an option at this time.




Does ISDA/G47 Marketplace ship coins internationally?


No, not at this time.




How will my silver coins be shipped?


USPS Certified mail.




What are the shipping, handling, and insurance charges?


Shipping and handling charges will be whatever the shipper determines the charges to be based on size and weight.




Can you ship an order to a post office box?


It depends on the type of P.O. box.




Can you ship to a third-party?


Yes.




Is the shipment traceable wherever it happens to be in transit?


Yes.




How long will it take to receive an order?


Depends on the shipper and the source that they use.




What should I expect when I receive my package?


Depends on the shipper and the source that they use.




Can I change my order after my order has been placed?


Generally speaking, No, but it can be exchanged for something else. See the ISDA and G47 Marketplace Member Agreements for additional information.




Can I combine a previously placed order to lower my shipping cost?


It’s a case-by-case scenario. Contact the SBM (Small Business Member) and ask.




Am I able to cancel my order after the order is confirmed?


No, but you can exchange it for something else, somewhere else. See the ISDA and G47 Marketplace Member Agreements for additional information.




Do you accept trade-ins or buyback products represented?


ISDA/G47 Marketplace does not offer returns, refunds, trade-ins or buyback products. However, it is possible that someone else in the ISDA/G47 Marketplace could buy it back. There’s no guarantee. See the ISDA and G47 Marketplace Member Agreements for additional information.




Isn’t the ISDA/G47 Marketplace primarily the connector, and the transactions and fulfilling, shipping and so forth, the responsibility of the SBMs and the customer, so therefore shipping and all other issues are between the SBM and the customer? To what extent does ISDA/G47 Marketplace actually get involved in this, and to what extent is it just simply between the customer and the SBM?


Yes, ISDA/G47 Marketplace is here simply to provide a safe environment as a medium for exchange – a platform – but not settlement of disputes. With everyone taking personal responsibility vs. relying on third-party intermediaries, it’s not likely identity theft could even happen here.




Are there any additional incentives found in the ISDA/G47 Marketplace (e.g. matching grants) to be aware of?


See the current Liberty Stewardship Awards and related Honorable Rewards Policies for this information. And we’re working on some other proprietary ideas along these lines. You can also explore other options by visiting how to submit your SBM to possibly qualify for provisions.





Cash Flows & CPOs

What is a CPO?


A CPO is a Cooperative Procurement Opportunity. Click here for more information.




If the initial vesting period for silver is at least one year and a day, does that mean I can't leverage that amount for at least a full year … it's just stuck in the Grain House?


No. IVA values may be leveraged up to 90% with qualified CPOs.




If silver appreciates in value, what amount is available to leverage?


IVA values may be leveraged up to 90% with qualified CPOs.




I have heard this being referenced as a fund-raiser, which typically means a benefit to the organization, in this case, the ISDA/G47 Communal Treasury. Donating to a good cause is great, but I'm also needing to manage and grow my business. How do the proceeds from sales on ISDA/G47 Marketplace flow back to my business?


No more “every man for himself”. Our interdependent community approach does exchanges with valuable goods and services amongst one another without any taxing third-party middle-men. Through relationships of trust, we all benefit. Click here for additional information about how to submit your SBM or Project for consideration.




Is ICFMS the same thing as Infinite Banking, Cash Flow Banking, Income-For-Life, 770 Account, etc.?


No. These are all different names for a very similar concept with one significant difference … they all use life insurance, or real estate in some cases, as a way to become your own bank and build lasting wealth. So, while it is a proven concept that's been used by the ultra-wealthy for decades, not everyone is insurable, nor are all life insurance companies and policies the same.

The ICFMS solution leaves out the selling of commissioned product sales in order to minimize fees, maximize cash value, and make the proprietary solution available to the common man not otherwise available through conventional financial channels.

What really sets the ICFMS apart is the amount of education you receive. Our mission is financial literacy and consumer protection. And therefore, unlike typical salesmen who try to keep everything shrouded in mystery, your ICFMS expert will answer all your questions and take as much time as you need so you fully understand the process before you begin. Check out our Events and Services tabs today to learn more.




Am I too old to benefit from ICFMS?


Absolutely not. Nevertheless, time is not on our side if we let it pass us by, and therefore minimizes our options to fully capitalize on all ICFMS opportunities. The best way to find out how it can work in your unique situation is to schedule a consultation with one of our experts today.




How much do I need to get started with ICFMS?


That depends on you and how you want to use your IVA account (revisit the Three Foundational Plan Options). The most basic separate custodial account starts at 21, 1-ounce American Silver Eagle coins with a one-time set-up assessment of $250 and roughly an annual 2.5% account maintenance charge (storage, insurance, accounting, reporting, etc.).

ICFMS however, is not the custodian. Furthermore, in this regard, your custodial account is not a traditional investment in any sense of the word either. It’s more like a safe-keeping reserve vault with a contractually guaranteed component tied directly to real physical U.S. Treasury minted silver. Unlike investments of securities that can go up or down in value, your account is 100% collateralized with the amount of your silver and therefore, will never be depleted, unless of course you choose to “cash out” or decide not to return the value of what you borrowed from yourself.

On this topic, please keep in mind, ICFMS is not designed for the ISDA to do it for you in a traditional ‘assets under management’ role or through commissioned sales of products or software. Instead, we choose to do it with you. What we have, we freely share with you. All we ask is that you cover your costs associated you’re your plan.




Why haven't I heard of the ICFMS strategy before?


Of the several reasons, the most significant starts with the government restricting the advertising of these special cash flow programs and anything that does not support the value of Federal Reserve Notes.

A second reason is that the financial services industry either doesn’t know, or has no interest in selling you one, since it is not in their financial interest.

And thirdly, no financial institution would willingly provide a solution for you, because doing so would only reduce your dependency on them.

Fortunately, like most of the advanced wealth-building tools and accounts used by the wealthy, word of mouth remains the primary way people discover the concept. You have now found out about a community that is designed to support you!




This sounds almost too good to be true. How can you earn cash flow even when you take money out of ICFMS?


Few people understand what money is and how it actually works. The key is to stop working for it and learn how to have it work for you. Once you learn this skill, you will no longer outsource your responsibility to a third-party bank … you become your bank. This gives you the same leverage that a bank has using other people’s money to their advantage…and we show you how.




Okay, so if I have to take a "loan" out, won’t I be paying interest for that privilege?


Yes. To clarify, it is not a "loan", but leveraging your own IVA. However, the “interest” (if you want to call it that) is not paid to a third-party bank, but rather, when you borrow from yourself, you are effectively paying yourself back. If you pay it back (which is optional), you will not only enjoy appreciation (based on the underlying value of the asset remaining) as if you had simply left that money in your account without a loan, you will also gain that “repayment” equity back. So why not use that leverage to your advantage and have money work for you? Additionally, if you pay yourself back with extra interest, you will come out even farther ahead (a more advanced technique). Our experts can show you how it all works visually on a spreadsheet. Just set up your consultation today.




How does ICFMS provide me with a tax-free solution?


The solution answers the question as to how to effectively monetize a highly-appreciated asset (low-cost basis) without creating a taxable event. Strategies such as a loan against the value of personal property, cash value life insurance, or certain retirement plans, for example, are not taxable because those cash-flows are not considered income. In the same way, neither is a cash advance from a credit card considered income. With these types of strategies, we believe it is better to have our plan and community before venturing into this world of personal wealth finance.




Are there any risks with ICFMS?


Like any financial endeavor, there are always potential risks. However, unlike typical Wall Street investments, YOU are the greatest risk factor of them all. Why, you ask? Because while you may have the tools, you lack the knowledge, wisdom and discernment necessary to identify sound opportunities and take responsibility to steward your self-directed strategy well. There is safety in a multitude of counselors. If you are willing to educate yourself, our experts can show you how to put it to work. Teamwork makes the dream work. Just set up your consultation today.




I do not see a payback of the Bank Line of Credit (BLOC) built into your system. Does a payback of the BLOC, or at least the interest on the BLOC, exist in the Infinite Cash Flow Management System (ICFMS)?


This is not a debt-based system of principal and interest. Instead, it is a collateralized asset with royalty compensation, good for all … not just the lender.





ICO Vesting Account (IVA)

What does the exchange/redemption process look like?


Create an account. Fund your account through a redemptive process converting dollars to an equivalent amount of silver. Direct your account. This is built as a self-directed and seamless process. If you need further help, contact your referring friend to guide you from their personal experience.




Does the ISDA IVA platform have the ability to set up a "subscription" or monthly amount?


Yes, but only after the IVA is created and funded with 21 ICOs (which is the equivalent of 21 American Silver Eagle coins). Select the appropriate Top-Off Account option.




Can the IVA be funded on a “lay-a-way” process if I cannot afford 21 ICOs at one time?


No, the opening 21 ASE value must be funded initially to satisfy the common law described by the 7th amendment. However, you may top off your IVA in single ICO units.




What are the advantages of physical metals over ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) or similar funds?


Precious metals that have been commonly securitized in such funds have multiple claims to the same bullion. You don’t actually own it.

By physically possessing metal either yourself, or in safekeeping elsewhere, you own it. The ISDA has the solution for this. Learn more about that here and get involved.




What is the GPA (Gideon Protocol Access) relationship?


The answer is two-fold. The GPA process is the equivalent to "Know Your Customer" process, but it also determines what level of relationship you desire within the ISDA community. Go here to see the five levels you may choose from.




After the vesting period of at least one year and a day, do I have to take an automatic distribution?


If you revert back to a local currency, yes. But we encourage setting aside some for portfolio diversity, and don’t have all your eggs in one basket.




Do I have flexibility to adjust distribution percentages and/or frequency?


Not now, but later. With our focus on internet security, we’re taking it slow to make sure people stay safe during this transition.




How do I subscribe to a recurring monthly silver acquisition for my IVA?


Select the appropriate Top-Off Account option.




What are the advantages of leaving a silver coin in the IVA or Grain House Initiative vs. taking physical possession of the coin directly shipped to me?


The Grain House Initiative ASE coin contributions are eligible for Liberty Stewardship Awards. Only the IVA ASE coin contributions are eligible for leveraging (see related Honorable Rewards Policies). As far as taking physical possession of silver vs. using the ISDA depository via your IVA, read more about why an assured international depository is safer.




Is it possible to co-vest a silver coin in the IVA/Grain House Initiative to be leveraged and redeemed at a later date?


Yes. Like the irrevocable contribution of a brick, you get the benefits of the wall. See G47 Silver Certificate/Card Policies and related Honorable Rewards Policies for more information.




Do you have a way to track what my “investment” is currently worth?


No investments are offered through ISDA/G47 Marketplace. Everyone who participates does what is called CoVesting, which is not investing. However, the spot price of silver to hundredths of an ounce (ICOs) is quoted in real time within the ISDA website.




What about precious metals as a part of my IRA, self-directed IRA, or LLC IRA?


Precious metals comprise a great compliment in a self-directed platform with many options for investing. Get started here with our preferred provider, Entrust for additional information.




What happens to my account balance value if I choose not to redeem silver back to my local currency at the point of exchange?


The ounces of silver in your account, multiplied by the spot price of silver at any point in time, equals the “account balance” along with any G47 Silver Certificates/Cards. See G47 Silver Certificate/Card Policies for additional information.




Is it possible to receive a silver-backed debit card (e.g. a PMAC - Precious Metals Access Card) in lieu of a cash withdrawal in my local currency?


Not yet, but it is something we are looking into right now.




In case of emergency, how do we gain access to these funds? And what constitutes an emergency that would allow this access?


The IVA/Grain House Initiatives are not an investment fund or depository account for such an emergency. It is a storehouse in a safe jurisdiction, inspired by the emergency preparations plan of the character Joseph in Genesis. And so goes the story, when the money failed …




If the U.S. declares martial law and the internet is shutdown, how would the ISDA/G47 Marketplace function and members gain access during a crisis?


The IVA/Grain House Initiatives are not an investment fund or depository account for such an emergency. It is a storehouse in a safe jurisdiction. Nevertheless, we are working on a nifty related off-line, near-field distributed ledger technology to accommodate those folks in the mission field with no conventional lines of communication infrastructure, where half the population still lives on less than $5/day (e.g. the 10/40 Window).




What is an IVA?


The IVA is an ICO Vesting Account. Click here for more information.




Do I get a statement?


No. Not at this time.




How do I terminate participation?


Beneficiaries may terminate their participation according to the ISDA and G47 Marketplace Member Agreements.




Do I receive certificates of beneficial interest for my IVA?


No, that does not apply.




What are the tax consequences of participating with an IVA?


Generally speaking, there are no tax consequences within the ISDA jurisdiction. However, when redeeming to local currency, the beneficiary should consult their own tax advisor regarding the consequence and consideration in their country of residence.




Are there any costs associated with an IVA?


The ISDA provides a convenient and cost-effective way for beneficiaries to establish, store, and add value to their IVA without having to incur additional costs.

  1. $250: a one-time set-up assessment to establish an account
  2. A shared annual maintenance value: the greater of $250 or 2.5% of the account value, whichever is greater.




Can I enroll in an IVA if my source of funds are in an IRA or other tax-exempt account?


Yes, the IVA is a great compliment in a self-directed platform with many options available. Get started here with our preferred provider, Entrust for additional information.




Does the value of the IVA change based on the spot price of silver, or does it remain the same price it was when it was acquired/covested?


Yes, the value changes. While the number of ounces is fixed, the IVA value is a function of those ounces of silver in your account, multiplied by the spot price of silver at any point in time, which equals the “account balance” along with any G47 Silver Certificates/Cards. See G47 Silver Certificate/Card Policies for additional information.




What is the stuff they mean by "premium material"?


Premium material is privileged information made available to eligible IVA account holders and subscribers of the premium content. If you attempt to read something that has been designated as premium and you are not logged in nor subscribed, you will receive an error message and be prompted to login.




Is it true that only certain IVA accounts can be leveraged?


No. All IVA accounts may be leveraged, subject to voluntary GPA thresholds. See the ISDA and G47 Marketplace Member Agreements for additional information.




Must additional contributions of silver also "vest"?


Yes. See the ISDA and G47 Marketplace Member Agreements for additional information.





Glossary of Terms (G47 & ISDA)

G47 Global Initiative (An International Movement)


An encompassing ideology of Fin-Tech disruptors designed to positively impact participating communities with interoperable economic strategies and vehicles that may generate upside potential via private equity as a function of residual cash flow. All registered member participants (Natural Man/Woman and/or Fictional Enterprise) operate in voluntary contribution (CoVested) of their Time, Talent and/or Treasure. All registered member participants agree in Relationship and Royalty Sharing Covenant to a myriad of scheduled Rebates, Royalties and Rewards prescribed under an Honorable Rewards Protocol as privately published by the G47 Global Initiative and ISDA Board of Directors. Programs initiatied are generally defined prior to any CoVested participation, and with fully informed self-directed decision of the registered member participant (iCovestor).




iCovest (Verb: To lawfully vest and redeem ICO in trust for CPO BIU)


To Cooperatively Vest (or "Co-Vest") Intentional Community Opportunity(-ies) (or "ICO") as an administrative reference in private association/trust ledger accountancy for conveyance in self-directed value application of certain Cooperative Procurement Opportunity(-ies) (or "CPO") assembled in private exchange and/or CPO Silver Syndication. Generally speaking, members of the international private associations formed in alignment with the ideologies of the G47 Global Initiative have privately accepted ICO as a measurment of American Silver Eagle ("ASE") Coins exchangeable in digital conveyance between GMs, PCMs and SBMs. The ASE never leave the Ecclesiastical Ministry of Finance (ISDA Vaults) domiciled within our global community, but the cash flow accountancy ledger may lawfully be inter-exchanged and transfered between registered members of our FBO Private Association.




CoVest (Verb: To lawfully vest & redeem domestic currency in trust for ICO)


To jointly, in creative association, endow (a person, group, committee, etc.) pecuniary stewardship, functions, or rights: to vest the board with power to increase production and/or intrinsic value of principal asset as entrusted unto its fiduciary care and responsibility for accountability and management. CoVestors redeem “legal tender” for a fixed amount of lawful money ( 12 U.S. Code § 411) according to the then-current spot price of silver, a.k.a. “redeemed for lawful money on account.” When considering the use of retirement funds in this capacity, learn how to turn your IRA into an IVA. ( CLICK HERE) Generally speaking, "CoVesting" is the act of redeeming domestic currency (i.e. USD, EUR, GBP, KOR, PH, etc.) for private international acceptance of G47 Global Initiative ICO via actions performed under RRSC agreeemnt, and only by self-directed consent.
