Gold standard vs Fiat vs Bitcoin – Truthloader

Over the past 100 years the global money supply has increased dramatically, leading to rising prices, ordinary people forced into heavy borrowing and government debt spiraling out of control – US national debt, for example, currently stands at more than US$17.5 trillion (as of 30/04/14). In response to this, some people have been calling for a return to the gold standard, a monetary system where the value of national currencies is directly linked to gold. This is different to the fiat money system currently in use the world over, where the value of national currencies is determined by governments. Other people, however, are suggesting that the cyrptocurrency Bitcoin could be the answer, with many asking if it’s the “new gold standard”.

Gold and silver are REAL wealth, real money. Bitcoin, like fiat currency, is a fraud and backed by nothing except the fool's belief that it is "as good as gold". Gold and silver continue to hold value, in spite of the minipulation, but everyone knows the paper dollar has lost most of it's value over the years. Bitcoin is just an electronic Ponzi scheme and there must be a lot of losers so that the winners can get their profits and get out. That's the key to Bitcoin… invest, get the other guy's money for awhile, then cash in and leave the new fools screwed and broke.

Sam Sam says:

USA etc doesn't want Gold back or base their money on anything else than their worthless paper money..

This video give MISLEADING INFO. Not governments issue money! But central bank and central bank (europe, usa no matter) controlled by 5-6 bankers it's PRIVATE company that prints money and lends it to countries. SO governments became in debt to bankers. And people pay that debt + inflation (tax).

Tomas Av. says:

Gold is almost unused metal and we have SOOO MUCH of it.

Arturas P says:

too bad by now most bitcoin is owned by small minority, so the bc wealth is even more concentrated than the 1%
