Gold? What gold? I never saw any Wink. Hehehe.

The whole power of the U.S. relies on the status of the USD as a world trade currency. That status is about to collapse. It's possible that the USD will be the last national currency that will have the status of a trade currency. The age of cryptocurrencies is looming...

It wouldn't surprise me if / when usd has a huge crash or is hyperinflated that we'll comparing everything to a bitcoin (or another cryptocurrency).

If you are a US citizen, and you have never looked at this http://www.usdebtclock.org/ and had no sleepless nights.... then you should join

the other millions of people ignoring the obvious signs of a total economic collapse. The Americans think that they are the superior nation, but

they are drowning in debt. You can still live in a fancy house with hunger pains.  Roll Eyes

The problem with printing money all the time is it keeps making the middle classes and poor people even poorer as their purchasing power keeps going down and this isn't a good thing long term at all. Also increasing the debt ceiling is a big problem and this has to be sorted out. Russia and China are buying up a lot of gold reserves, what is the U.S doing to strengthen it's fiat currency?
When governments of the world turn on the printing press to get out of debt the middle class is the most affected by far, the rich will still be rich since they have houses, jewelry and stuff like that, the truly poor are still very poor, the middle class is the one that has most of their wealth confiscated through inflation.

The inflation will affect the middle and lower class more than the upper class. So the poorer people should support the bitcoin.

...

The US has grave problems with its debt, no doubt.  But, the other powers (China and Russia) have even more serious problems IMO if you look hard.

Besides, each of us can only do what we can do as individuals.  Ponder the below:

1) I would *guess* that people here on this forum are smarter and have more money than the "average American".

2) It is not really hard nor that expensive to get certain assets that will protect us in case things DO go to shit...

3) Here is a starter list:

- gold (for the wealthy) and/or silver (for the less so).  Silver might work better in trade after a SHTF.  Gold for your children...
- Bitcoin, the potential for HUGE speculative gains (and privacy) make this a great asset.
- A gun (or two) and at least 1000 rounds of ammo (each weapon), NOT counting how much you need to shoot before becoming proficient.
- Necessary (or tradable) medicine like Epipens, pain pills, antibiotics.  Add a first aid kit too.

An ounce or two or three of gold.  A Bitcoin or two or three.  A weapon, ammo and the knowledge of how to use it.  You are then ahead of 95% of Americans (at least those not on farms).

It is possible that bitcoin will add to US currency financial crisis when people are leaving the banks and replace fiat currency with bitcoins. Soon more Americans, Russians, Chinese will leave the banks to rot and will shift to cryptocurrency.

China will be the top of society since they have major holdings on bitcoin.

But the U.S. is too dependent on credit. The average citizen has multiple credit cards, and they keep on charging and charging. Then there's the Property Mortgages, where a single property could be mortgaged not just once, but even twice. I haven't seen a nation as dependent on their credit cards.

True, I visited the US once and I was shocked that my credit card can do so much! Want a drink? Credit card vending machines. Pay for parking? Credit card automatic payment machine. Need to buy something from a local convenience store? They accept card even for only a dollar bought from the store. This isn't the case in my country. We usually can only use credit cards for big purchases (around $10 or more). My country doesn't rely too much on credit like the US does. I think this was their downfall like how the real estate under credit bubble they had before.

To bitcoin or not to bitcoin, that is now the question.

I believe so, that US has trillions? of debts and as what I read before,they are indebted to China also. Also even though strong in military and technology, but its not sound financially. And it seems its a ticking bomb,waiting to explode.

USA isn`t in the best finansial shape,but we can`t compare USA to Russia.

They are too different.

Trump can change everything after January 2017  Grin...

The united states live from their good reputation.
Although they have already been nearly insolvent a few times during the last years, the USA get negative real interest rates on government debt.
That means the market believes that there are no alternatives with sufficiently low risk.
Hopefully the market is not wrong.

Yes, and most of the financial spending happens through debt (credit cards) and people often face a hard time repaying them. Also, even though the US Federal Reserve prints a lot of notes, they still do have to bear the costs of printing and circulation of funds. I'm not sure how far can I relate it to being weaker than Russia financially, but I'm sure the overall GDP of the United States isn't that bad.

No. When the buying power of dollars is getting crashed out, interestingly bitcoin will get more power in term of buying capability. Usually dollar and gold are inverted connected so we can assume bitcoin too. When dollar will lose its value, bitcoin will gain.

Buying bitcoins using fiats has nothing to do with this by any means. (If dollar crashed out, we just need more dollars to buy one bitcoin.)

It is possible that the US dollar price will be much higher in the near future.
