Fair enough, though I do hold the probability for there to be shenanigans in, pretty much any, custodial precious metals arrangement to be very near metaphysical certitude.

Well, I don't disagree with you on that. But you never know for sure, and hope springs eternal.

As does human nature, ensuring that it always ends the same.  Whoever is in charge of the money will eventually steal it.  Opinion, based on history.

I guess I hope I haven't let a monumental, total one-off chance at financial independence slip through my fingers. That isn't to say I have a lot to complain about.

A more humble person would have presented that as an opinion, not a fact.

Writing for example, "in my opinion they will be unbacked goldtethers...just like the current paper gold market...no thanks"

Or "I believe that in reality they will be unbacked goldtethers...just like the current paper gold market...no thanks"


That's bullshit.

jojo gave you a good enough and logical answer that is pretty much a well known fact that includes that there is a lot of gold that is maniplated and difficult to get possession of millions of dollars of it, take the government of germany for example trying to get possession of gold held in the usa. 

You, Arriemoller, are engaged in trivial bullshit and distracting talk and attempting to give assignments to get caught in the weeds with bullshit about a supposed better status(that you assume) if an asset is backed rather than not backed. 

There is no fucking decent backing of any asset that is not manipulated, including gold.  Bitcoin happens to be a paradigm changing phenomenon because it is the first ever asset class that is backed by decentralized and trustless proof of work.  Sure, in the end, the bitcoin project might fail, but currently we have an asset that looks like it has real decent promise, and if any of the less than 1% of the world who currently HODL some bitcoin recognize the paradigm shifting contribution of bitcoin, they are likely to profit from such recognition by HODLing.  Sure there are going to be other folks who profit from HODLing bitcoin as well, even if they do not recognize the enormity of its paradigm shifting contribution as a new asset class.

So good luck with your attempt to find some asset class that is backed by something (such as gold) and is not manipulated to shit in a much more centralized way than bitcoin, which is currently king of decentralized proof of work backing value in practice.

I have a mind plot of 80000 at the end of this year, I'm still bullish.
The only thing that concerns me is the plethora of clonecoins that have plopt up lately, they might suck up some of the fiat that might otherwise haver gone to bitcoin. If so we might get a lower  price, but still much higher than the latest ATH in my opinion.

You seem to be a little unfocused yourself. Go back and read the hole argument and you will find that it was not about the gold backing per se but about the stating of an opinion as a fact.
What the fuck is a "we rock in your pocket"?

And in any case, you were not a part of that argument, so but out!

Damn it, I´m starting to like Russo after I dismissed him initially as a conspiracy theorist.

You only need to watch this 1 minute 15 second clip.  It's from 2005 or earlier before bitcoin was released.  What he describes as the banker's plan is to put everyone into the equivalent of a digital federated chain and anyone who goes against the banks, they can just turn off your transactions and your money is essentially confiscated/gone and you no longer exist:

https://youtu.be/xdwbO84BMWY?t=286

Such a system is exactly what bitcoin evolves into.  The transactions are not blinded (fungible) and transaction validators are designed to centralize, making it a permissioned ledger where the G20 govt can easily take over those transaction validators and legislate each transaction must be AML/KYC compliant (chain anchor).  From there it turns into the banker occupied govt randomly labeling all of their perceived enemies (anyone who refuses to be slaves) as "terrorists" and turning off your funds, so you either worship the Marxists who took over the state or die of starvation.

THIS is why numerous people describe PHYSICAL MONEY that can't be turned off by the state as a basic human right and safeguard to any form of democracy as I mentioned here:
