> the reality that it is the only version of "sound" money in the current currency ecosystem What do you mean by "sound money"? Is Gold sound money? GLD is a digital asset that is fully backed by Gold, liquid, and easy to trade/transfer. Is Silver sound money? SLV is fully backed by Silver and is also liquid and easy to trade. Are commodities sound money? There are a wide variety of liquid commodities you can easily save, trade, and transfer on brokerages. Is land sound money? You can already save and trade shares of income-generating land. Are closed end funds sound money (these are funds with a fixed number of shares)? These are also readily available and liquid. > At present it is a currency amongst many currencies that are all in competition with each other How so? Currencies like USD are designed to be a liquid unit of account suitable for communicating stable prices and denominating predictable debts and other contracts (salaries, rents, insurance policies, lines of credit, taxes, etc.). Can you think of a single contract governing any real economic activity that uses a currency which is competing with Fiat? I know some Gold companies occasionally issue Gold denominated bonds to raise capital, but it's tiny compared to Fiat -denominated contracts. What other currencies are used to communicate prices? Maybe you are talking about competition as an investment or store of value? Fiat is not an investment, and the performance of USD assets designed to store value (like savings accounts) is determined by real interest rates, not inflation. Real interest rates are ultimately set by the market between people who want to long USD (savers/lenders) and people who want to short USD (borrowers). > when fiat money is poorly managed What makes you say this? The market's 5 year CPI inflation expectations are currently ~2.2%, just barely above target. USD is still liquid, nonvolatile, relatively predictable, widely used to communicate prices, and widely used to denominate contracts. It is functioning exactly as designed. > But that doesn't mean fiat doesn't have ways to perform better than sound money so there is this back and forth. Yeah, USD assets perform better when the Fed raises interest rates. The whole point of raising interest rates is to increase demand for USD assets and reduce supply (i.e. borrowing), and the whole point of lowering rates is the reverse. That is, USD assets perform as well as they need to to attract enough demand to keep inflation on target, and no better. > It is after all centralized and controlled in a way that BTC is not. Exactly, this makes it more predictable and is the reason why so many rely on it in contracts. If I were a business, why would I take out a debt or agree to pay a salary in a unit of account that might moon and drive me to bankruptcy? > To your point, at some point in the future BTC will be easier to use for transactions because it's value will be normalized to the global market Yet Gold is highly liquid and globally traded, yet it's value is far more volatile than USD and it is not widely used in contracts. The global market itself is pretty liquid (e.g. global index funds), yet these are also far more volatile than USD. USD is a stablecoin. It is predictable precisely because its issuer manipulates it to remain that way. > When the world is denominated in satoshis, there won't be massive fluctuations in perceived value of a BTC When the world was denominated in Gold, there were often substantial fluctuations in the perceived value of Gold, and Gold mooning caused a series of financial panics and mass bankrupcies.

> what the peasantry calls block chain, is just a bunch of data concatenated in blocks, signed by a CRYPTOGRAPHIC signature. This is not true. Individual transactions are signed with a cryptographic signature: this signature of the person who is sending the coins. The CRYPTOGRAPHIC key used to produce this signature is derived from the individual's seed phrase / hard wallet. Blocks consist a bunch of transactions signed by different individuals using different cryptographic keys (wallets). The blocks themselves are not signed by anyone. Instead, blocks are only *hashed*, and anyone can hash block (in fact, miners hash many trillions of blocks every day). > which brings to the final point: bitcoin is the only real crypto currency, because all the others use, one way or another, authority of a centralized entity as the final say so: only bitcoin relies solely on cryptographic signatures. This isn't true though. There are many blockchains that have clients which rely solely on cryptographic signatures to verify transactions and proof of work hashing to verify blocks. For example, there are several infamous clones of Bitcoin which use almost exactly the same software as the Bitcoin client. Hence, they verify their blockchains in almost the exact same manner as the Bitcoin client does. > bitcoin is not about efficiency, but removing intermediaries from the transfer of wealth between people Bitcoin itself *is* an intermediary though. That is, the Bitcoin network is one tool that can be used to transfer wealth between people, and it has its pros and cons depending on the specifics of the use case. There are other intermediaries that you can use with different pros and cons. > people that control the latter tend to get mad corrupt by this privilege Who controls this now? You can send value through many intermediaries today, including banks (through Zelle, which is usually feeless), Venmo, Cashapp (which is Bitcoin-friendly), etc. as well as via brokerages, where you can send stocks, bonds, GLD, SLV, commodities, REITs, etc. You can also use and trade a variety of physical assets including Gold coins.

The main difference between SLV and Sprott is one allows redemption of the physical asset. I don't know how Grayscale has been reporting their Bitcoin ownership recently; its been about 12 months since I actively followed their filings. I would imagine they either already do or are prepared to report holdings and NAV per unit should the SEC approve their ETF.

Wouldn't this be the difference between SLV and Sprott Silver? SLV didn't actually go into the market and acquire the appropriate amount of physical silver bullion represented by ETF shares, Sprott Silver does. And part of the original question was in regards to this issue. I *thought* part of grayscales whole schtick was they were going to have a transparent fund that showed coin ownership commensurate with share sales. Obviously one model is better for bitcoin than the other, and is kind of what I wanted to learn about from the original question.

Don't worry about my hopes bud. They're not real high. I'm aware of the concerns regarding price suppression via futures contracts since the futures market morphed out of the gold pool. Ostensibly the ETF purchases would be on chain and would reduce the chance of fuckery. Akin to Sprott Silver vs. SLV. Thanks for the awesome bitcoin 101 advice completely irrelevant to the current question.

> All of what you said is based on the fractional reserve paradigm tho I'm not a fan of fractional reserve and I don't think it's a good model for the current USD system. IMO, a better model is that all dollars in checking and savings accounts are "real" interest-bearing dollars (as "real" as cash) created by the Fed and backed by loans to banks. Banks are essentially deputies of the Fed: instead of the Fed issuing new dollar through loans directly to homeowners/businesses/etc., the Fed issues loans to banks and the banks issue loans to the individuals/businesses. > Why do we need to earn interest? Because the dollar is designed to have a predictable value. Time preferences are determined by the market and can vary, so if the dollar's value is going to be fixed/predictable, then interest rates have to be variable. Otherwise, USD would moon when demand for savings increases and crash when demand for savings decreases (and this in fact happened with Gold and happens with fixed-supply cryptocurrencies today). > Thinking more primitively, you don’t think people sought to have a store of wealth in their money? What do you mean by "a store of wealth in their money"? There are a wide variety of assets ranging from savings accounts and CDs to bonds, stocks, Gold that people can and do use to store wealth. The job of the USD is to be a unit of account that enables stable prices and predictable debts. It is not the primary job of the USD to be a store of wealth: that is what just about every other financial asset is for. > You don’t think that’s possible with a currentcy backed by a hard asset It is: as I said, GLD is already a "currency" backed by a hard asset (Gold) and SLV is already a "currency" backed by a hard asset (Silver), both of which are pretty easy to use today. No one is stopping you from using these to store wealth.

> if dollars were redeemable for gold (or any hard / scarce actual backing) they could be a store of wealth This would be redundant: there are already widely used, liquid financial assets which are redeemable for Gold (GLD, IAU, etc.), for silver (SLV, etc.), and for other commodities. It is already straightforward and nearly free to trade dollars (USD) for gold-backed "dollars" (GLD) or silver-backed "dollars" (SLV) as desired. > They can’t be a store of wealth bc they are inflatable Dollars which don't bear interest aren't a *long term* store of wealth, yeah. Dollars in a savings account or dollar-denominated bonds *can* be a long term store of wealth when inflation is sufficiently predictable and real interest rates are good (or better than risk-adjusted alternatives). Dollars themselves aren't supposed to be a long term store of wealth: they are just supposed to be a predictable unit of account, designed to target 2% medium term CPI inflation while minimizing volatility in prices and interest rates. It is in terms of this predictable unit of account that stores of wealth like bonds or savings accounts are defined. The interest rates on these stores of wealth are ultimately determined by the market so that supply (savers/lenders) matches demand (borrowers). Lower interest rates discourage saving/lending dollars and encourage borrowing dollars, higher interest rates do the opposite. For example, if you believe interest rates are too low, you are free to buy GLD, SLV, or just about any other financial asset on margin at slightly above the "too low" rates. > aren’t backed tho They are fully backed by debt: mostly Treasuries (backed by tax revenue and Government assets), mortgages (backed by homeowners' income and houses/land), and corporate debt (backed by corporate income and corporate assets). That is, every dollar is backed by a promise to take that dollar out of circulation in the future, and these promises create a guaranteed *demand* (a "burn rate") for dollars. The Fed then ensures that the USD's value stays (roughly) on target by calibrating the *supply* of new dollars by tightening or loosening credit (e.g. by setting short term interest rates). So long as there is sufficient assets/income behind the backing debt, raising interest rates and tightening credit is very effective at reducing inflation to keep USD on target (and even triggering substantial deflation if taken to excess).

Crypto, stocks, precious metals are all falling day after day but that presents an opportunity if you look back at history of similar market conditions. I personally believe that precious metals are what I'm going to buy because historically after a crash they bounce hard. Im not saying to sell your Crypto or not just giving some historical context about the PM markets predictable response to this type of crash. First the PM market falls along with the stock market because people sell to cover sinking positions but soon after silver, gold, platinum, and palladium pop hard as capital flows to safe haven assets. After the 2008 financial crisis silver saw a nearly 50% dip in prices then a 5x rise shortly after by 2011, in 2020 we saw a 25% drop in prices followed SWIFTLY by a 2x rise in prices in a matter of months. You can check the charts. Right now silver is cheap andstill dropping while supply of physical silver is very tight as indicated by premiums on physical metal and comex inventory stats. #But for the love of god DONT PLAY THE COMEX PAPER SILVER GAME! SLV is a scam, youll never get metal from them with paying exorbitant fees to "load out" a bar. Get physical silver not derivatives, dca as it drops, and hold it until the bounce. It's predictable AF that this will happen again, i don't know how long it will take because that depends on the depth of the stock market crash and this is not financial advice but diversification into real assets is something you should strongly consider.

Yeah, like SLV. They are funds that are supposedly backed by “some” physical metal but mainly deal in derivatives (future contracts, etc.) of the silver or gold markets to provide a synthetic exposure to the metals markets. The thing with them though is even if they are backed by metals, you don’t own a share of the metals themselves, you one a slice of the income from them because you have no rights to the underlying physical being held.

I thought that you could redeem (load out) SLV at any time (once you reached 1,000 ounces in shares) which is technically true however they make it extremely difficult to actually do it. So many steps and intermediaries you have to go through its ridiculous. There was a guy who did it and made a YouTube video documenting the process and they cancelled his delivery like 5 times saying that he needed more shares every time. It ended up costing so much more than the cost of physical silver. But paxg isnt a comex future contract so hopefully they're different.

I agree with your perspective overall. We should be very careful who we praise in any context. The fact that a national leader “coolest dictator” is buying BTC w national treasure leads to the question about how they are handling keys/access. It may make decentralized digital assets a pariah if he absconds with them.

Bitcoin has a lot of new money driven in part because people see it as a store of value during this inflationary period.

I've been invested in silver for some decades and I believe there is a corollary there that might be of use here. While I do have silver coins and bars, that has proved to be a bit cumbersome for me. It's heavy as hell, takes up a lot of space and I'm in charge of keeping it from getting stolen. For that reason, I sometimes buy shares of SLV which to my knowledge is similar to the types of ETF's that might emerge in the Bitcoin space in the future. SLV trades fairly closely with the price of silver but it is not exact. I believe the value of the silver represented by SLV is larger than the actual silver they may have stored. Instead they rely on buying or writing futures contracts and other derivatives throughout the silver market and the result is a product that generally follows the price of silver either up or down. Now here's the interesting part- there's much more "paper" silver than actual silver in the big silver vaults around the world. So essentially there is a chance that swings in SLV may actually push the spot price of silver around from time to time instead of the other way around. To bring this back to Bitcoin, I believe that the creation of these ETFs will greatly increase the amount of money that flows in and out of btc every day, (albeit indirectly). This will add wattage to the spotlight that shines on BTC and it will push it to new highs

Yep, it is. But it's going to happen anyway. So use it to your advantage. The main reason Gensler wants to approve futures based (and not physically backed) Bitcoin ETFs is to dampen the tidal wave of money that would otherwise flow into the actual asset and cause Bitcoin to rocket to the moon. Paper backed ETFs like GLD and SLV have been used to manipulate and siphon away demand for precious metals for years. They're trying the same thing with BTC since they know they can't outlaw it outright.

Their example of cash settled (SLV) isn’t actually cash settled. You can redeem it for silver in large chunks that piss precious metal bugs off because the chunks are too large to be meaningful to retail, but that’s not the point, since the arbitrage still happens from institutions and keeps prices aligned. There are certainly other possible issues with ETFs, but what you’re describing is either a misunderstanding of fractional reserves or actual fraud, which we have a legal system against. It may not be as satisfying to have to rely on fuzzy legal processes but fraud does actually get prosecuted especially when rich people have money to lose, which would be the case if reserves weren’t fully backed. There’s a separate possibility which is that some ETFs don’t actually claim to hold the underlying security, but instead hold futures on that security. This typically happens when storing it is difficult or expensive, so instead of needing a giant oil storage facility I can run an oil ETF out of a small office and roll my futures without ever taking delivery. There are a bunch of issues with that structure too (though that’s sort of what Gensler is judging Bitcoin ETFs towards) but what I said is still true, and you should still be able to redeem the futures if you own big chunks of the ETF. Then if you really want to you can take delivery of those futures (assuming they’re “physically” settled) and get the underlying coin. Anyway, I’m not saying any of this is good per se, just that the amount of FUD about paper X or manipulated Y is ridiculous around here. There’s no doubt a lot of shady stuff that happens in finance but ETFs aren’t what made it possible, and being a financial Luddite and preaching that consenting adults should not voluntarily enter contracts with one another (that’s all an option or a future or any other derivative is, in the end) is just stupid and anti-libertarian IMO.

If the BTC ETF is run anything like the GLD and SLV then they no accountability whatsoever. In the precious metals space only PSLV has to hold physical silver. Banks only have to hold a small percentage of cash to back deposits.

Bro clearly no amount of real world testimony will sway your opinion. Fuck the people of El Salvador I guess since the BTC subreddit on some social media site that not many citizens of SLV visit said they’ll be fine, their protests, comments, and concerns are unfounded. 😂 the worlds fucked. Bitcoin is not a cure all, and the government there needs more than some hopefully stable enough moon shot as mandatory tender to achieve long term growth.

The CME silver market cannot be squeezed, research what they did to "the Hunt Brothers". You can be forced (your assets "borrowed") to sell to make an orderly market. Several large players have significant positions in SLV, and some VP probably pitched this idea to pump the price and then have Retail bag hold. It's a trap.

That's a different debate about which vaults actually have the bars 1:1...hence why I stay away from SLV and go with PSLV. I'm not interested in derivative games or fractional banking. When making this post, I was more interested in the connection between silver and crypto since silver is critical to renewable power for the miners...figured someone had already married the two together somewhere. Maybe I was wrong although there's been a few comments I'll research further.

Yeah...ETFs would be a big negative....just look at what jp morgan does with the Silver SLV etf. While bitcoin is more transparent that the LBMA storage vaults, it just gives them another opportunity to screw with the price without holding the underlying. CME (cash settled) futures were also sold as being bullish for btc, but were in reality a method to tamp down the price using leverage that simply doesn't exist in the underlying asset (before the futures market, the only way to short bitcoin, was to find someone willing to lend it to you...ha, fat chance)

I have physical hands on shiney silver. I have government mints, coins and also bars of it.

You can order online, or go to a local coin shop. If you're interested check out r /WallStreetSilver .

I've chosen to move most of my crypto gains into physical silver, and silver miners for beta. Experienced observers of the precious metals space can see the technical charts for silver and gold are setup for a run, as much as 50% for gold and 100% for silver... the silver miners are like crypto on steroids, at times like this, and the small caps can move 10x in a week before hitting more the next. I use the Sprott ETF - PSLV as a means to buy and hold title to silver I don't want to take possesion of (not SLV which is a scam of paper silver). I use Kinesis Monetary a my means to buy crypto gold (KAU) and silver (KAG), and Kinesis has the added bonus of paying me a yield (yields start next month), I can use a VISA debit card for purchases, and things really go sideways I can call for delivery of my metals anywhere in the world. Kinesis has a proprietary exchange that handles BTC, ETH, USDT, USD, EUR, and GBP, but plans are to have their KAU and KAG trading on external exchanges soon (no word yet which ones). There's an added bonus of a Kinesis Velocity Token (300,000 ever) and these give you partial ownership of company profits. And then there's always the physical silver in hand that I get from reputable bullion dealers. Those silver miners are best learned about from a guy on Twitter, 'at'TheLastDegree ... he goes by Gold Ventures, and makes a lot of info available about what he's buying, and why. So, that's what I am doing while seeing the writing on the wall of a shift in investment flows and sentiment of people looking for momentum. I think the next 10 months puts momentum in silver mostly, and gold some.

I invested in gold during the financial crisis, and was a huge fan of Peter Schiff. I feared hyper-inflation and even hoarded canned food, in a semi-prepper way. The rhetoric was the same back then, as now. Hyper-inflation coming, buy gold. Now it's just "digital gold" – i.e. Bitcoin. It didn't materialize. And I lost out on huge stock market gains, because I was so "invested" in the idea of "yeah right... It's just a suckers rally... it will all go to shit... So I'll keep my GLD and SLV..." Gold was a very very boring asset to hold. It moves sooooo slowly. And it didn't even hold its value very well. It had looooong bear-periods, too! And was overall an *utterly meaningless investment*.

Mentions:#SLV
r/BitcoinSee Comment

Yes, the mechanics are the same. Even if demand comes in through futures, arbitrage should increase the spot price too. The difference could be in the players and their objectives. Central Banks control the supply of gold, and they could have a vested interest in suppressing its price (and maybe other precious metals) to be able to say more convincingly there is no inflation (and they allegedly use derivatives to do that). Oil is controlled by nation states and transnational companies with different geopolitical goals, so incentives are not aligned between players, so it has a more "legitimate" market. But that's a little bit of speculation on my part. With all that being said, I had a look at the market cap of silver, and it looks to be roughly 1.4 trillion USD. Now, you don't need another 1.4 trillion to, say, double the price of silver, probably much less than that. But as you said, SLV AUM is 15 billion, or a little over 1% of market cap...I am guessing not enough to "squeeze", especially when 21 billion is being mined every year. I don't know where the 800x is coming from either.

Mentions:#SLV
r/BitcoinSee Comment

Doesn't oil also have a large market in futures and other derivatives? How does it differ from gold and silver? Also, I just ran some quick numbers. Recently about 25,000 tonnes or $21 billion of silver is mined per year. CME open interest in silver futures represents about $20 billion. AUM for SLV is $15 billion and this is possibly double counting the CME futures. I'm sure I'm missing something here - being generous it looks like paper silver might represent 2 years of mining which doesn't seem like 800x physical silver?
