    Gold easy choice for me. Bitcoin has obviously gained more value lately but it could be banned, obsolete etc by 2027.

    Unless $10K is less than 1% of their portfolios, I have a hard time believing so many people would pick bitcoin.

    Gold is just one corrupt law away from being confiscated. Good luck confiscating Bitcoins.

    Gold and treasuries are probably pretty close from a very long term historical perspective. I would guess gold would do better over the next 10 years but that is purely a guess.

    It is more interesting to read how aggressively stupid so many of the people commenting on the Tweet are. I noticed a lot of people have very confident opinions on things they have no business being confident on.

    Because bitcoin will probably go up 100-1000x in value whereas gold will probably go somewhere from holding steady to 10-100x in value.

    False. A lottery ticket is a gambling game based on chance. Bitcoin is a revolution in money.

    Yes but there is also absolutely no reason why Bitcoin couldn't completely crash. It's a trust thing, as soon as the trust is gone, the value is gone. It can happen and statistics say it will happen.

    Higher risk, higher payout. Therefore...

    I don't see bitcoin completely crashing.. it is being used in too many places for too many different things. Even if ONE country cracked down, it wouldn't do much, and it might even make people more interested, particularly on a global scale.. if it was going to get hacked, it probably would have been hacked by now.

    I mean, ya, there are scenarios where bitcoin could crash or go down, I just don't see them as very likely at this point. Bitcoin is ready to burst onto the scene.

    If you think there is a bitcoin mania now because all of a sudden you know one or two people who suddenly gained interest, wait a few years until rappers are talking about how much bitcoin they own and your grandma wants to buy some.

    Slaves gonna be slaves, trading their labor for absolutely nothing.

    People are literally sending their dollars to buy $#@!ing "cryptokitties". It's like a pet rock but there's no rock. Zombies abound.

    Analytically:
    $10k buys 7+ ozs of physical gold at the suppressed/fraudulent paper gold price. Indexed to the national debt, that 7ozs is already valued at $42k. Sounds like gold is a no-brainer. Silver even better since the same indexed value means $10k of silver is already valued at $364k.

    Or you could buy some electrons instead.

    I think many people voted for Bitcoin to simply promote Bitcoin. No chance of Bitcoin in it's current form in 10 years being competitive with Gold or other cryptocurrencies. A superior fork of Bitcoin maybe, but certainly not this Bitcoin. The current Bitcoin tech is too immature and limited for real world widespread adoption as opposed to it's competitors.

    More likely in 10 years one or more of the technically superior cryptos will take it's place or maybe a new one, possibly one's back by the establishment like a US Treasury crypto currency.

    The price of gold has no tracking relationship with us debt. US debt has always gone up for more than half a century yet gold has gone up and down.

    Of course it doesn't, because you should have bolded the "suppressed/fraudulent paper gold price" part instead. Once the amount of printed money got so large that foreigners started redeeming it for more physical gold than the Treasury could supply, the gold link was cut in 1971. The FRN situation got too out-of-hand in 1971 for gold. What does that say about the state of the FRN:gold relationship today, with a national debt of 21 TRILLION??

    What's to prevent insiders at exchanges to tell their friends to lose some of the altcoins, or let it be hacked? Like Mt Gox, Plausible deniability?

    Actually it was the trade deficit which led to Nixon closing the gold window. When you have a trade deficit and your trading partners can trade their dollars for gold, you can lose all of your gold reserves to them. The US was losing gold- we were projected to be out of it in ten to twenty years if it continued.

    ^^^^^ 6 or a half dozen. You spun the same thing I said in a slightly different way. Too many dollars outstanding that were being redeemed for gold because the dollars weren't trusted and holders would rather have the gold. In 1971.
