This is what I have been thinking for a while yes. Maybe gold will be downgraded to silver and silver to (what the hell's behind silver?). Although Litecoin might also be in the picture.

If this happens you'll be able to buy shiny things for your girlfriend/wife much much cheaper Smiley


also can someone post a GOLD VS BTC price chart

See the gold collapsing, Bitcoin UP thread.

%5 of gold is about 9 trillion dollars, apply that to 21 million bitcoins and we get a price of over 37,000$ pre bitcoin.

Nah.....some people will always demand tangible assets that can be held in ones hand. Granted you can make casscis coins, but still there will always be a demand the known safe reliable bet......and I sure as hell ain't a gold bug but feel obliged to say it.

[̲̅$̲̅(̲̅ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°̲̅)̲̅$̲̅] From time to time i exchange e-currencies/trade like Skrill>Paypal>Remittances>Pokerstars>Amazon GC>PaySafecard to Bitcoin. [̲̅$̲̅(̲̅ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°̲̅)̲̅$̲̅]

Ah Sad and he started so well. (although he shouldn't say replicate but rather improve for each of the characteristics)

He doesn't understand intrinsic value.

Gold is tangible.  Bitcoin can aspire to tap into the gold market sure, but gold is still a safer store of value because it requires nothing to exist.  Bitcoin will always require electricity.

Tangibility is actually an undesirable property. Time will show everyone because superior currencies will win in the end.

True, we will see but gold is not trying to be a currency.  It's store of value.

People will see that that's actually the same thing. This is why fiat "currencies" are so incredibly bad currencies.

Not only store of value, gold is used in electronic and some other areas as well. It is usefull metal

Yes and we're merely talking about speculative value here. Industrially gold will continue to be used and don't forget jewelry. But that makes up such a tiny portion of the market cap ...

Well if Bitcoin doesn't become stable, it will never find usefulness as a currency. It will merely be a digital store of value. Gold has survived every type of fiat ever created.  I think comparing Bitcoin to Gold is honestly, wishful thinking.  As I said, gold requires nothing to exist.  Bitcoin, at it's most fundamental level, still has "counter-party risk".  Thus, I don't think the two can accurately be compared.  They are completely different.  That's not to say, many gold speculators wont jump on Bitcoin.  It's highly possible they will.

I completely disagree. Bitcoin improves on gold for every property. Bitcoin is an evolution over gold. Cryptocurrencies are an evolution over PMs.

How does Bitcoin has "counter-party-risk" anyway? You can store your own private keys, it's actually easier than storing your own gold in sufficient quantities.

And stability? I think that's overrated, but at some point the value will stop its explosive growth.

Think we'll just have to agree to disagree.   Wink  Bitcoin has "counter-party-risk" because it's digital.  Requires electricity, among other things.  If all the lights go out, Bitcoin is useless but gold will still be extremely valuable, as it's been for thousands of years.  You can't digitally evolve gold.  You can digitally evolve fiat currencies, but not gold.  As awesome as Bitcoin is, it still has no intrinsic value.

Stability overrated for a currency?  Yeah, probably not going to get many that agree with that.  Stability is essential for usefulness.

well gold can be filled with tungsten so it has "counter-party-risk" as well

i don't think Gold is dropping value because of Bitcoin. i think Gold is losing value because people are regaining confidence in Fiat/Stocks etc. silly humans.

This is an amazing video!

Shitf single handedly refutes all his arguments over the last month against Bitcoin. Now all he is arguing is intrinsic value!

Wow, this is actually a major shift.

And the intrinsic value argument is ridiculous! You've got to be kidding me. There are dozens of metals with more intrinsic value than gold.

If you haven't heard about what is happening with GAME, check it out.  It's revolutionizing gaming. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1266597.0

That's not counter party risk, that's gold being susceptible to counterfeit.  Something Bitcoin prevents.

Likely this.  ^^  Just as when stocks and economy tumble people run to gold.
