Translation: The only reason gold is not a gazillion dollars per ounce is because of the shadowy figures (probably Jews) "manipulating" the price. But Gold really is the sh*t so we're going to keep hawking it like a carnival barker till the end of time.

The short answer: This is a real stupid question!

Precious metals, cost to mine and refine - pretty high, depending on the metal
Crypto, cost to produce - ZERO

Precious metals, inherent value - They all have industrial uses
Crypto, inherent value - ZERO

The cryptos are all Ponzi schemes created on the IPO model where the creators and co-conspirators are given large amounts of free shares/coins that they can sell unrestrictedly. A smaller amount is made available publicly, looking for fools.

Told you that is EXACTLY what would happen a long time ago, and again most recently

when the banks were allowed to start a crypto futures market.


The banks are as crooked as a dogs hind leg and taint any and everything they touch.


Why the big surprise?

They fully controlled and manipulated the price on the way up so it only seems fitting that the same group could beat the price down at will once they have fleeced enough retards into it.

More arrests recently, farcical fines.

No Investors compensated for banker indiscretions!!

Join the Global Class action fightback against gold/silver manipulation!

Investors from 18 countries around the world have signed up so far...will you?

Together we can end this.

Bitcoin is exactly the opposite of a gold standard so I can't see why any central banker would be against it.  What asset backs bitcoin?  Electricity?
