What is the real value of gold and silver?

Indications of manipulation abound within the markets for precious metals. Although commentators have identified these issues for decades, a growing trend on social media is spreading this message to the masses. As people begin to awake to the reality of precious metals price manipulation and the corruption of fiat currency, we are left asking: what are the real values of gold and silver?

In a time of skyrocketing debt, precious metals offer us a safe haven to store value.

Global debt is spiralling out of control and the situation is exacerbated by the growing divide between wealthy and poor. The process behind this deterioration is intimately linked to our fiat monetary structure, and the insidious manner it leaches value. However, the situation is seemingly contrasted by the apparent rise in stock market values. In truth, one is a reflection of the other, and in times of economic uncertainty, we must look to precious metals to maintain the value of our savings.

I sincerely believe that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies, and that the principle of spending…


A growing awareness of bullion market manipulation is driving activism: #silversqueeze

The recent #silversqueeze movement has stimulated a vital discussion, concerning the free market for precious metals and the nature of fiat currencies. Banks are at the centre of major market manipulations and corruption appears entrenched within the highest echelons of banking and politics. As society moves towards a critical threshold of this awareness, the banking industry must scramble to protect itself by obfuscating the nature of these manipulations.

At the heart of this corruption is a lack of transparency and accountability. …


What is the connection?

A confluence of factors is gathering which could herald a major change in global financial structures. Fiat currencies are morphing into CBDCs and integral to this process is the ownership and control of global gold stocks. Connected to all these developments is the Bank For International Settlements (BIS) which is the self-proclaimed central bank of central banks.

It is no coincidence that the century of total war coincided with the century of central banking.” ― Ron Paul, End the Fed

The understanding of what central banks do and how they function is opaque. Given their impact on global markets, this…


Regulation provides confidence and security to investors.

Regulators around the globe are working to ensure that appropriate regulations are in place to facilitate broader adoption of security tokens. These regulations are necessary to protect both investors and the integrity of markets. Appropriate regulation for security tokens should provide the same protections that are currently given to investors in traditional markets. As security tokens are a relatively new investment instrument, it will be important to ensure that regulators keep pace with this rapidly evolving financial landscape.

Before we delve into the regulation of security tokens, it is necessary to address the nature of regulation. It is vital that…


The nature of hyperinflation and the current state of the US dollar.

Rampant inflationary monetary policy will fuel global demand for gold.

This year the United States Federal Reserve has implemented unprecedented quantitative easing policies that will have dire consequences for the value of the US dollar. The ramifications of these actions will be global and have a direct impact on the value of gold and other precious metals.

We have discussed this topic in a previous article but it is an important subject that deserves to be understood within the context of evolving circumstances.

Let us not…


As the dollar is devalued can gold and blockchain replace it?

How can we maintain our savings in times of global financial crisis?

The global economy is undergoing an economic transformation unlike any in history. It is imperative for us to save for the future, but when the nature of money itself is changing, how do we shepherd our savings through the transformation? Perhaps we should take a leaf out of the central banker’s playbook and hoard gold.

The unprecedented chain of events that created the current global economic lockdown is generating conditions that have precipitated a worldwide economic crisis. As the famous economist Milton Friedman once said:

“Only a crisis — actual or perceived — produces real change.”

The ownership of central…


Security tokens backed by precious metals are the ideal solution in times of economic uncertainty.

The world is experiencing unprecedented economic instability due to the global lockdown and the situation is expected to deteriorate before it improves. During times of crisis, investors look to move their equity into safe-haven assets such as gold, but now we also have cryptocurrencies. A new class of investor is emerging that is looking to harness the benefits of digital currencies but maintain access to precious metals. Security tokens which are backed by and redeemable for gold are bridging the gap between the two.

The current economic crisis was precipitated by the global lockdown but its roots lie in the…
