Gold has been the most stable "currency" since Biblical times, and has seen many fiat currencies come and go.
It continues to be a tangible store of value, and continues to keep growing, providing a hedge against inflation, and financial security in times of national and international catastrophe.
In 1971, Richard Nixon cancelled the direct convertibility of the US Dollar to Gold. Fiat currencies around the world followed suit, and now loose more an more of their value every year.
So, is it possible for the "man-in-the-street" to acquire 999.9 Gold bullion? Yes, it is, and Gold Matters can help you with this process.
In 2008, a new "currency" called Bitcoin (BTC) was invented by an unknown person, who named himself Satoshi Nakamoto. The first payment using this currency was made in 2010, where 2 Pizzas were bought for 10 000 BTC's. Since then, BTC, and other crypto currencies, have started to change the financial world. The transactions are done on the "Blockchain", which is a decentralised, and transparent, public ledger, to which everyone has access, not just a select few.
