Intrinsic value is based on the important needs of society.
Do you even listen to yourself?  Intrinsic value is based on the needs of society....  
How do you call the needs of a society "intrinsic" to a piece of gold?  
And then you call me confused...

Nice pieces, but aren't their historical value higher then the value of their gold content?

Yes but same principle applies to old gold sovereigns for example that are over a hundred years old but only worth bullion values.

And then you call me confused...

I thought he made that clear - industrial uses.  There are also cultural uses such as wedding rings and other jewellery, dentistry etc.

May the new gold be as successful as the old one! Cool

Indian Jones -Raiders of the lost ark II just wouldn't be the same with a paper wallet instead of a gold idol now would it Smiley


Or a ledger in his pocket :p

Just googled the price of those babies, I was referring to the 'having value within 500 years'.
But I could settle with 1BTC equals 1 of those coins too you know https://www.ebay.com/itm/SPAIN-1718-ONLY-1-KNOWN-8-ESCUDOS-NGC-61-MINT-STATE-GOLD-DOUBLOON-COIN-COB-/302318932336

Jezus people.  I realize that gold has utility.  I know that you can use it for jewellery, electronics etc. .
I was talking talking about the bullshit concept of "intrinsic value", which is right out there with phlogiston.
At this point I feel like I am highjacking the thread though, so I'll quit talking about it (for now Grin).

Strawman much?
First off, I originally specifically said "Gold's monetary utility is also easily replaceable.", already taking into account that gold has other utility than just the monetary one.
Secondly, I was talking about the concept of intrinsic value in general.
Intrinsic value is based on the important needs of society.

Says who? Intrinsic means an inherent property of the object it's self. So for example a gold bars refraction index is an intrinsic property, it's elemental makeup is an intrinsic property. The atomic weight of it's atoms would remain the same even if there were no one around to observe it because that is an intrinsic property. But value? In order for it's value to be an intrinsic property it would need to have a consistent value even in the absence of people around to place a value upon it.

You say it's important for making electronics. You know there are people out there who do not value electronics right?

I get that you are trying to point out a distinction between more abstract reasons for valuing things vs more concrete lower order production type reasons for valuing things, but intrinsic is just not the right word for that. It just confuses people and everyone starts talking past each other.

I'm mostly a fan of simpler metals, like aluminum, steel and titanium. I need to see it formed into something, this calms my mind Smiley
It's a pleasure to talk to you, because you seem to understand the game. Even if our views on some things are different, it doesn't matter, because we are able to express ourselves in a respectful and constructive form.
I'm not proud of it, but I mostly come here to troll. Religious people have always brought out the troll in me, and I haven't found a better way to converse with them yet. From time to time, it's a pleasant surprise to see that you can actually express yourself as an human being and it will be understood.

Those metals are not great for stacking though as they are not value dense if you hold the physical metal.

Silver is bad enough but you can cram a lot of money in gold form into peli case Wink

We don't need to read the charts to know when to buy the dip because Bittard shows up with diarrhea of the fingers every time!

And markj113 shows up to brag about the gold and lambos that he claims to own but can't prove it.  Roll Eyes

Bitcoin feels a bit stuck at the moment, stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Stuck between two opposing forces, kinda like this :

Most of bitcoin value is based on peoples hopes of it being more valuable in the future. Greed is a very fragile pillar in my book - it goes as quickly as it comes. Far more fragile then the need of electronics in today's world to stay competitive, or even when comparing it to the tradition of jewelry, then bitcoin greed is still a fragile pillar. And it's kind of ironic to hear from a bitcoin fanatic, that electronics isn't important to everyone Tongue And I already said that there are people who don't value electronics. In PNG there are plenty of people like that, go see how they're doing. The monetary system has one goal, and that is to allow modern economy happen. The economy creates value, the monetary system helps the economy to do so. And the best help comes from the monetary system that is most stable.

What no tool vanity plate to go with it? Lol

If you have lambo, good for you. You're now part of the tool club along with Ver and CSW.

I have a paid off house and still millions worth of bitcoin. So tell me why I would be bitter again?

Yeah, but that is my personal thing that I told before. I get very anxious when I see money sitting still, so I like metals that are meant to be quickly formed into something more valuable Tongue In a way, I invest more into people then metals Smiley

I have also paid off my current house thanks to crypto + gold.

bought the Lambo for cash and have about $600,000 in precious metals ready to buy another house.  

p.s. your the one that called me a liar Wink

These are my big boy gold bars (also have gold coins + silver):


But the point I'm trying to make is, we don't give a shit what you own dude. Only you do. Which is probably why you don't have a friends. Or a girl. But I'm wondering if your ego actually can fit inside your house.

Roger Ver, is this one of your sock puppet accounts? Sure seems like it.
