I am also accumulating physical. Diversification and holistic analysis tells me that silver is still important. Gold - not so much. It has lost its appeal with brainwallets  Grin

Any way to short diamonds, anyone?   Wink
I offload a few just over a year ago, 12 years in a safe. Fetched less in USD than they cost.

Thank me in Bits 12MwnzxtprG2mHm3rKdgi7NmJKCypsMMQw

This is not some pseudoeconomic post-modern Libertarian cult, it's an un-led, crowd-sourced mega startup organized around mutual self-interest where problems, whether of the theoretical or purely practical variety, are treated as temporary and, ultimately, solvable.

It might be insightful to figure out a percentage of people who have had bitcoin scammed/stolen from them.  I imagine it is higher percentage than gold, even when you include people that have lost their wedding ring accidentally, but I don't know.  Just a guess.

We can do a straw poll here since it is a thread probably made of folks with an interest in both or owning both.
Then you might as well include all the scams and theft of US dollars and other currency.  Heck might as well include all credit card fraud.  That's still scammed/stolen isn't it?

That would be getting off the topic here of Gold and Bitcoin, yes?

I've lost BTC but not AU. (But I also do not wear a wedding band).
I suspect that a lot of folks have lost those, or earrings or watches or other gold jewelry.
I also suspect that about the same percentage of folks or more, that have both, have lost bitcoin.
Scams, accidents, theft, etc.
I'm guessing that there are probably more percentage of folks that have suffered bitcoin scams than gold scams though.  (The tungsten issue is what started this line of curiosity)

However I take responsibility for my actions and I'm not crying about it.

To be fair, that is an unfair comparison until Bitcoin gains the same market share as gold had.

To be even fairer, Bitcoin security measures are also immature and improving all the time.

4chan/anon

back in the day there was some debate as to if this should be used and i saw it and was like !!!!!!!   the others more or less rejected it back then.

i kinda got sucked in right then and there leaving everything else behind. i helped get moot into btc (4chan has taken it for over a year). pretty sure im the first he ever sent btc too just testing it out.



Yes! because I remember you prominently on the Securities board in my Bitcoin youngin' days. Nearly everyone was a scammer back then, I thought you were one too Cheesy "Who the **** is this Goat guy!!" I always thought

The letters with slashes refer to categories/sub-boards on chan-style image boards such as 4chan, 12chan, 420chan, et al.

In the same way that here we have "Speculation" and "Mining" etc.

A scam is a scam.  The medium of value transfer is irrelevant.  If you are claiming gold is safer then bitcoins then bitcoins are safer then debit/credit cards since annual fraud levels are likely to be a few times higher then the total bitcoin valuation.

I was a Goldbug (actually more of a Silverbug), but when I discovered the distributed nature of Bitcoin, I realized that I was now obsolete.

Reality hurts sometimes, but it is always best to face it. These people would rather deny it and then get angry at those who face it. It is a stupid way to live.

If you're a PM-bug and you don't become highly enthusiastic when you find out about Bitcoin you must either:

1. Lack the (technical) know how to understand why Bitcoin can make the claims it makes (primarily regarding security, fungibility and security) and not believe these
2. Not really understand WHY you're a gold bug in the first place
3. Be so indoctrinated and entrenched in your believes it takes more than reason to escape them

I hope most are of the first category (because that is at east a valid reason) but am afraid 2 and 3 are much more common Sad
