I had not yet come across Bitcoin in 2011, but imagine it's starting to feel a lot like it did in late 2011.

If you believe it and hold gold but want to stay in the precious metal game, you sell the gold for silver.
The silver gold ratio is higher than most any time in history, and this would be a good time to take advantage.  If PM prices go up, silver will be expected to go up more by %.

Or you could just buy bitcoin.
Silver is not gold. How much silver do central banks hold?

FNG, you are making NL's point for him.

Silver is at a ridiculous 70:1 ratio vs gold precisely because it has been completely (while gold has only been partially) demonetized.

When silver is re-monetized, and central banks revert to the norm of buying/holding it in their reserves, the ratio will fall towards the historic average of 16:1.

Cypher is a forgiving person and having all your eggs in one virtual basket is always risky. Smiley

I read a quote from Eric Sprott the other day that silver from a mine delivered costs $22-25 per oz, with some caveats like recycled silver and silver produced as a by-product of other mines. I'm guessing gold is in a similar situation. Physical PM sales in September were double that of previous months and the sales came from existing stock because the production of coins at places like the US mint is below current demand. But in the PM arena physical demand/supply has no bearing on the paper price. Apple purportedly makes 20-30% profit on each iphone. If they were taking a 20% loss per unit then either Apple would go broke or they would have to raise the price. It would be logical to think that PM miners will need higher prices or face going broke but logic also doesn't play a huge part in financial markets these days. Either way, you could make a reasonable case for silver right now imo.

Winner: BITCOIN.

And how many percent did Bitcoin fall JUST TODAY? Cheesy
Saved for future reference.

You need a hand with the math?

I plan on living about 100 years, so looking at the daily ups/downs of any of my assets is just noise. My USD holdings drop several percentage points virtually every single year. For my bitcoin holdings, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 have been amazing years. 2014 is an outlier. Talk to me again in 2024 and we'll compare USD to BTC.

Gold collapsing as well as Bitcoin collapsing. Gold will go down more, though and Bitcoin should break the trend soon. So buying Bitcoin now.

Can anyone speculate as to what has been up with all the dumping?  Where are all these coins coming from?

My first guess would be that is the BTC that Karpeles stole.

He probably does not, but that certainly doesn't mean they would not be making it to market.  In fact, it's more likely they would be put into the market if he does NOT control them.

I think the missing Gox BTC took us to $2 in 2011-12, this is the start of capitulation and whale re-balancing.

You may well be right.  I hope so.  I've not followed any analysis which lends strength to you suggestion and certainly have not performed any myself.  I'm not aware of any public proof of control after then famous mid-2011 transfer so they certainly could have launched into a bunch of blatant fraud in that timeframe.

i sincerely hope that most whales are rebalancing as it would be the most bullish thing yet --> distribution into stronger, more numerous hands.
