Turkey to Bring Home All Physical Gold

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

Gold Backed Money Based On Blockchain is Coming

Countries are going to begin using digital gold-blockchain monies. Blockchain is fast, efficient and transparent. Governments can collect taxes directly on-chain with a centralized core, but distributed ledger. 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...

We’ve seen Venezuela, Austria, Germany, Hungry, and the Netherlands all repatriate their physical gold lately. According to the latest Fed data, gold stored at the NY Fed has dropped to a record low of 7,819 tons. 15.5 tons withdrawn between Jan-Feb 2018 alone. And the gold keeps leaving.

As of this morning we can add Turkey to the list. Turkey’s Yeni Safak reports that their government has decided to bring home the gold, and deliver it to the Istanbul Stock Exchange. This isn’t the first time Turkey has asked. In recent years they have brought home over 220 tons of gold previously stored abroad.

Turkey’s gold reserves are estimated at 591 tons, worth just over $23 billion. This makes Ankara the 11th largest gold holder in the world.

This gold repatriation comes during a critical time for the lira, Turkey’s currency. The lira has fallen against the dollar and euro lately, and Turkey has experienced double digit inflation because of it. The Turkish central bank has so far refused to raise rates. Higher rates typically bring the value of currency higher as investors seek return. Seems Turkey has abandoned modern methods of supporting a falling currency.

Meanwhile, president Erdogan has taken stance against US Dollars. “Why do we make all loans in dollars? Let’s use another currency. I suggest that the loans should be made based on gold! Erdoğan said during a speech at the Global Entrepreneurship Congress in Istanbul on April 16, according to Hurriyet. Erdogan added that “with the dollar the world is always under exchange rate pressure. We should save states and nations from this exchange rate pressure. Gold has never been a tool of oppression throughout history.

Erdogan may have plans to launch gold-backed currency once all the gold is back home. A gold standard makes prudent sense. Having a stable currency is critical to commerce. Gold is well distributed and traded throughout the world. The value is historically stable. Turkey may be able to focus on more important things once it has a stable currency.
