Gold-Blockchain is a Solution while Bitcoin is Not

Gold-Blockchain is a Solution while Bitcoin is Not

Our fiat money could never work for long. The gold monetary system of past did not fail by fundamental design. Central bankers first perverted it with paper notes and leveraged markets. Finally, in 1971, government abandoned it due to their own overspending. The resulting fiat we have today will fail by design, it never had a chance. Money cannot be baseless and printed into infinity. Having a central authority issue money at will results in corruption, class...

Ancient and Early Modern History of Gold

Ancient and Early Modern History of Gold

Admiration of gold predates history. The earliest known history of gold is a golden treasure dating back to 4600 BC. One of the earliest known Egyptian maps, the Turin Papyrus Map, shows detailed plans for a gold mine. The Aztecs regarded gold as the product of the gods, calling it literally “gods excrement”. Civilizations from every corner of the world clearly made great connections with their Gods and Gold. Today the world is full of gold...

Top 10 Gold Misconceptions & Propaganda on the Internet

There are many gold misconceptions distributed about. The propaganda is meant to keep us from buying gold. The Federal Reserve is a private institution representing the interests of 12 US banks. The Fed's foremost agenda is to defend their banking system. Secondarily it represents broad economic interests as mandated by US Congress. Those objectives do not always work in harmony. Gold is the central bankers Achilles heel. Interest in gold means people are losing faith in...

Gold Backed Money Based On Blockchain is Coming

Countries are going to begin using digital gold-blockchain monies. Blockchain is fast, efficient and transparent.

You'll spend money on a debit card like you do now, it will be very similar, you won't tell the difference in the way it spends. Russia and China have been buying large amounts of gold and silver recently. Countries such as Germany, Netherlands, Hungry, Turkey and others...

Gold-Backed Blockchain

Gold-Backed Blockchain

You won't be buying things with actual coins. You wont be using paper 'dollars' representing gold (as in the past). Those things won't even exist. The future is a digital money. Something incorruptible, verifiable and fast: a distributed blockchain ledger. Yes, it is similar to cryptocoins today. But not exactly. The difference is that the source code will be managed by your issuing government. Another difference is that it will be backed by gold. The coins...

Fiat Money & Rigged Markets

Fiat Money & Rigged Markets

Our fiat money system was designed to fail. The government borrows money from the Federal Reserve with interest attached. As time goes on, the debt compounds and raises exponentially. There comes a a time when that money is impossible to repay unless ever more is created, bringing about hyperinflation. The value of money drops dramatically during hyperinflation due to the massive amount issued by the bank, diluting the existing supply. The only cure is printing more...

Gold Blockchain Basics

It is difficult to entertain the idea of combining gold with blockchain without a thorough understanding of each. Government needs to assume responsibility for protecting and insuring our money considering how critical it is to the health of the country. A gold-backed blockchain system will give great faith in the health and security of our economic engine. Blockchain is a distributed public ledger containing a transaction history. This ledger is stored on multiple systems across a...

The leadership of the Hungarian National Bank (MNB) has decided to bring back home Hungary’s gold reserves. Up to now, 100,000 ounces (3 tons) of the precious metal were stored in London, which is in total worth some 33 billion forint ($130 million) at current gold prices.

The decision seems to be in line with international trends as storage of gold reserves out of the country is now considered risky by more and more central banks. AustrianGerman, and Dutch central banks are among those who have recently decided to repatriate their gold reserves. According to MNB, this may also further strengthen market confidence towards Hungary.

MNB has been holding gold reserves since its foundation in 1924. Towards the end of World War II, it had been transported to Austria on the famous Gold Train, captured by the Americans, then repatriated in full in 1946. The highest amount Hungary has ever had was around 65-70 tons at the beginning of the 70s. At the end of the 1980s, however, a decision was made to decrease gold reserve to the lowest possible level and rather to invest in sovereign debts, which as a consequence of the collapse of the Bretton Woods system are considered safer, more liquid and potentially of higher yields. At the beginning of 2010 this tendency changed again and central banks started to accumulate gold as a potential response to the financial crisis.

The Largest gold reserves in the world belong to the US and Germany, while in comparison to other Central-European countries Hungary has one of the tiniest amounts of the precious metal; for instance, Romania and Poland both have 103 tons, and Serbia has 13 tons. Since 1992, Hungary’s activity has remained steady, as the MNB hasn’t bought or sold any of its gold reserves.
