Re: It feels like 2008 Again Only Worse

Wow that was fast. Thank you. O0 I …. think I hold my own keys. I hold something. The same passphrase I had set up with Breadwallet. I’ll have to do some reading.

Re: Absolutely brutal - 5/5

And that’s very creative. There are also scary stories about safe deposit boxes being emptied. However, there is a much greater chance that valuables would be taken from my home. You have to pick your battles.

I had to migrate from BreadWallet to Coinbase. Tim Draper says they’re not going to go bankrupt. Still…if they do, our wallets may be emptied. I wonder what I should do with my 0.08 BTC :-\

Re: Where and how do you purchase physical gold?

The only proof coin I bought was pre-pp.
if I recall correctly from Harry Browne’s books, Rowland and Lawson’s (Craigr and Medium Tex) book, etc. you’re supposed to buy bullion. Proof coins are more like collectibles, no?

Personally, if I can get fractional coins for the same premium as 1 oz I go for those.
I might, too, but i buy from Apmex and the premium is way higher for fractional there.

Re: Absolutely brutal - 5/5

Bitcoin is just too young and Harry was wise. Even though he would probably have been fascinated by it, I can’t imagine that he would have recommended crypto to investors depending on his sage advice, let alone telling people to put in in a portfolio of “money you can’t afford to lose.”

Looks like I’ll have a chance to do some more serious buying, perhaps at 1800. p.s. I’m sure there’s a perfectly good reason for it, perhaps just the speed at which things can change, but CNBC’s headlines about gold are always the direct opposite of what their numbers show and it’s effing annoying. ...

Re: US / International weight

I love it when folks assert that gold is great due to lack of government control. That's an idea that started in the 1970s and is a shill point made by purveyors of gold. Could you clarify? Didn’t Harry Browne call bullshit on charges of gold manipulation and regulation? Not just once but on a regu...
