Let’s not forget that Russia host the worlds largest blockchain technology conference in June 2018. This is to say nothing of the fact that President Putin met with the developer of Ethereum almost 2 years ago to discuss how the technology works and how it could be used in the Russian economy.

From 2000 through 2012, the price of gold increased every year, rising from around $280 an ounce to nearly $1,700. It was an unprecedented run.
Then, in 2013, gold took a nose dive, losing over 27% of its value.
It was widely reported that the Swiss National Bank, the former bastion of monetary conservatism, lost $10 billion that year just on its gold holdings.
As you probably know, central banks hold a portion of their reserves in gold. The practice goes back to when central banks actually had to have gold on hand to trade in and out of paper money (or even trade for goods and services).

The stacking of gold is off the charts! What’s this nation up to, why has it stacked so much physical, and what’s this nation preparing for? Find out here…
The Bank of Mongolia has purchased 18.9 tons of gold in the first 11 months of 2018.
Nearly nineteen tons.
No big deal, right?
Actually, it is a huge deal, and as you read on, you will find out why.

The study of coins, numismatics, has constantly expanded our knowledge of antiquity in recent decades through new discoveries which have proven so many old theories wrong and turned academics on their head when it comes to their theories. Without the consideration of the coins, many questions of ancient history would never be answered. Nevertheless, many ancient historians still have a great reluctance to deal with this special discipline and to use their often valuable results. Conversely, many numismatists fail to comprehend the vast importance money has played in the history of humankind. It becomes increasingly rare to find the two fields merged to answer important questions from a larger historical context.

We caught up with our good friend David Morgan today. He’s bullish on gold and believes that the annual seasonal rally has begun. Longer term he’s especially bullish in light of the supply situation, or peak gold. He believes that recycling of precious metals, especially those contained in smart phones, will become more widespread. Lot’s more here.

According to the US Mint, demand for American Eagle Silver Coins surged last month. The mint sold 1.65 million ounces of silver in November. That represented a 15% increase over October sales and a whopping 327% increase over November 2017.
Perhaps investors are recognizing the tremendous upside potential for silver. After all, the silver-gold ratio hit a quarter-century high last month. That signals the price of silver is out of whack.
But there are even more fundamental reasons to own silver in our updated report “The Powerful Case for Silver.“
