Welcome To The World of Nubex
We believe precious metals should be as good as medium of exchange that stand the test of time throughout centuries.
Driving Innovation of 1000 Year Old Industry Through Technology
At Nubex, we believe technology should be the heart of innovation, supporting the business model and sustain it. We keep improving our system over time to materialize the ecosystem that will benefit and protect the interest for all parties involved.
We are among the first few companies that sell precious metals and bullions online since 2009 and evolved into a full-fledged marketplace in 2020. We join the rank as one of the sellers inside the marketplace itself.
As an online trading platform that carries both its own products and output from other minters at competitive prices, Nubex (The Platform) is part of the team’s effort to innovate and modernise the precious metals industry. The main objective is to ensure the price discovery will be based on the true marketplace supply and demand. On our platform, Sellers are able to set their own prices for each product sold. Thanks to our pricing engine which allows Sellers to set either at a fixed price or at a premium over spot price.
The lowest price of a product will be the first to be available to a buyer. Normally, without marketplace, the sellers typically need to walk to a jewellery physical store. They have to come to a price consensus with the buyer (the store). The seller usually has to accept the losses around 20 - 30 percent from the spot market price to close the deal.

Both buyers and sellers are the customers of the marketplace. At the same time, we are also one of the sellers on the platform, as well as a buyer from time to time. Being a customer of the platform, we will be able to identify the needs and improve the marketplace.
In order to create the best marketplace for all, feedbacks are really important to us. We listen to the feedbacks from our customers and evolve around these feedbacks.

The Right Team and People
In 2020, we are excited to have new pool of talents joining us as the core team for the company. At Nubex, this time, we believe the foundation should be solidified with the right people with talent and attitude, that understand and subscribe to our vision and see the bigger picture. Most of our core members are able to elaborate in details such as how fractional reserve banking works and have financial literacy.
Maybe the next keyword is decentralization, just like blockchain.
As a response to the 2008 financial crisis, our founders came together with the noble intention of promoting the preservation of wealth through precious metals, which resulted in the creation of the Nusantara Bullion Exchange (Nubex).
Being the first e-commerce marketplace to be available in Malaysia (even before the likes of Lazada and Shopee), Nubex specialised in the online retail trading of gold and silver products, a market that was previously dominated by brick and mortar jewellers, pawn shops and banks. Since 2009, Nubex has been establishing trust in the local precious metals market. From carrying established international and local brands; to producing our own precious metals products; along with our custom minting solutions and our Nubex Exchange marketplace platform, Nubex continues to offer viable solutions in the quest of promoting the preservation of wealth through precious metals.
