Stopped reading half way through to write this post. @xan and others what do folks think about about another section dedicated to bitcoin in the VP section? Many may not agree but I believe this is very important information and we have some knowledgeable people on this forum and bitcoin (or some other crypto) can be argued has the same qualities as gold.

Ok back to reading this thread. Very helpful info and opinions

start it...if we go by HB rules it's clearly VP stuff.

@xan

I think this is a good idea, I was going to suggest something similar too.

Just like the permanent portfolio funds do not adhere to a strict HBPP, I think it could make sense to have a category under permanent portfolio for bitcoin even though it is technically VP material but it doesn't matter as long as bitcoin gets its own section.

a category under permanent portfolio for bitcoin …

I see two votes for a subsection in the VP section for crypto and (record scratch) - what do you mean in the permanent portfolio section, Vincent? Nothing wrong with holding bitcoin or crypto, but …. Isn’t crypto a bit new to change the whole point of the forum?

Real estate can be a fine investment, but Harry never made it part of the pp.

Only suggested it because the VP section doesn’t have any other subsections right now and might look odd unless we also add or foresee to add other topics that could be of interest in the VP section.

There can be unlimited crypto threads in the VP section, but if enough people feel strongly enough about a subsection (in VP) for all things crypto, in the name of organization, why not. Seems to be a popular topic.
