Every once in awhile I like to look at old bitcoin purchases.....

In March 2014 I bought a Wii U for 1btc.

I'm looking at it now. See how stupid I was?

HODL

I look at past purchases every day. Bitcoin related art on my living room wall. Id be dishonest if i didnt consider the relative cost, but i still smile. Then i walk into the toilet and look at my NXTdot painting. At this point, I tend to turn 90 degrees into the mirror, and have a word with myself.

Bars or ingots may contain tungsten, the density of tungsten similar to gold.

Harder to fake silver because molybdenum is used and it's not as close to silver as tungsten is to gold.  Even still, in ultrasonic testing sound waves pass through tungsten almost twice as fast as through gold, so it totally gives it away. There's just a million different ways to test metals now where it's pretty difficult to be fooled if your operating budget is high enough to keep the lights turned on because you'd be able to afford testing equipment.  

Having said that, 1 oz coins (or lower) are by far the easiest to test, so in any metals remonetization, virtually nobody is going to be paying anyone with kilo bars or anything like that besides central bankers storing various bricks.  I think just about all the metals would wind up being melted for small denomination coinage as they should be.  In the old days I think the US govt actually did it for free if you brought your bullion to them.

As Reuters reported on Aug. 28, the gold industry is currently facing a forgery crisis — with fake kilogram bars found in the vaults of major banks such as JPMorgan Chase.

The gold is real, and very high purity, with only the markings faked. Fake-branded bars are a relatively new way to flout global measures to block conflict minerals and prevent money-laundering.

Hope they are good at acting surprised Wink

Note: The "fake" bars are real gold, however they have fake stamps for provenance.

So the gold people have the equal of monero. :-)

Woops, you beat me to it. Smiley

Bars or ingots may contain tungsten, the density of tungsten similar to gold.

Ingot tests containing tunsgten obtain a purity of 99.9xx% ...

The problem now is the cost of re-verifying the supply chain.

Here they talk a little about this: > https://twitter.com/nic__carter/status/1166716515082756096

LBMA http://www.lbma.org.uk/assets/market/gdl/GD_Rules_16_July_FINAL_20190722.pdf

A if any forgery then most likely "in house".
B we are not in dark ages anymore to relay on scales to check purity of gold. Anyone dealing with a kilo gold bar will check for imperfection in a scan.
On smaller lots get a magnet, tungsten is more magnetic, other than that a serious wack with a centre punch will sort it in no time. (want change the weight) A long long time i sold 95% of gold holding, selling the first piece almost ripped the heart out.

Recently sold a DSLR for £500, which was bought for ~£320,000.

Seemed like a good idea at the time.

Of course Bitcoin can be faked.  PoW does nothing to solve rough consensus attack.  You can have forks where there's no real 'winner' fork and the so-called minority fork doesn't die which seems to have already happened a few times.  It was thought they would need to have different algos for that to occur so the fact it can happen with the same algo is hilarious and just shows you how wrong most assumptions about Bitcoin are. 

'Forking' is not supposed to be some type of pre-planned, conspiracy process decided upon years in advance by people sitting in offices in New York either.  It's supposed to be a much more on the fly, continuous voting process that can spontaneously happen at any second, so having chains that don't die with the same algo is kind of a problem.  Then you have the fact Bitcoin is required to do things like fork everything to be quantum secure, and all those options are completely arbitrary, so there is no 'real' and 'fake' bitcoin at all because who decides in a scheme not governed by longest chain?  They're basically all fake and arbitrary in that context.  Then there's the good old 51% attack, and...why bother.

Thank you - you taught me something today.

Your welcome my very gracious friend.  Smiley I learned more than I wanted about the insanely complex tax code as an entrepreneur.

But there are some fake coins with bitcoin name on it.

- Bitcoin gold
 
- Bitcoin cash

- Bitcoin Diamond

- Bitcoin SV

- Lightning Bitcoin

Still there are some people who can't differentiate bitcoin from these shitcoins.

Quantify the difference in the word "Bitcoin" and "Shitcoin".  There is none.  Everything about Bitcoin is arbitrary.  Everything about 'shitcoin' is arbitrary.  It was a bogus propaganda word invented by people like Luke Jr to try and hide the fact digital craptocurrencies have no valid Schelling point.  You can't create a new noble metal like gold or silver in your basement, but anyone can create a new, imaginary, digital scamtoken.  None of them act as a valid focal point since they're all just arbitrary, Rube Goldberg machines.  He'll probably flip over some strange Catholic bible passage someday making him realize he was worshipping false idols instead of using 'God's money' - physical metals.
