I’ll take the gold.
Is anyone in here actually delusional enough that they would take $1.6 billion in bitcoin over $1.6 billion in gold?
Yeah I’ll take the gold.
Sorry, but I’d stick with gold…
bwahahaha… i’d take the $1.6Bn in gold any day — 1 year from now your $1.6Bn of bitcoin could just end up being $160M
I’ll take the 1 billion in gold any day!
I like this post
Funny. But let’s be honest.
The Bitcoin network, which is worth Billions of dollars, consists of many huge mining farms, nodes, and hardware wallets.
what i like most about gold is that it is thought to have been formed from the collision of neutron stars and was present in the dust that eventually formed our planet.
People always like something bigger, especially my girlfriend.
This is stupid.
You could make it even better by making an even smaller paper wallet print out instead of this chunky bit of hardware. HiRes pictures please!
Not gonna lie, gold is kinda awesome
And that usb has 16 bitcoin.
Gold is forever though.
Bitcoin is fucked in 20 years when the payout stops, no one is mining, and the entire system grinds to a halt. Thats the biggest concern I have with bitcoin as well as it being a tremendous waste of electricity.
I have seen video 10 years ago how black market bosses exchanges some small amout of osmium. Mainly because gold or cash worth of billions would be impossible to transfer between 2 parties. Now we have better currency
I’ll take the gold
The problem here is I can’t quite zoom in far enough on the bitcoin to see the keys. Anyone have a better picture?
I don’t know why there hasn’t been a unit conversion in bananas yet.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m extremely bullish on BTC, and would love to see it succeed.
However, you’re comparing something tangible (gold) with something intangible (data) to prove a point. There’s a bias which makes it an unfair comparison in this context, and thus a shitpost, in my humble opinion.
Does it store the seed phrase encrypted or in plane text?
Does it use a custom words list as electrum or the standard’s one?
Does it stores bitcoins using bip84 for segwit?
Sorry, I’m building a wallet.
Who knew that digital takes up less space than physical?!
This is called portability. Even one million dollars in USD in smaller denominations can get very heavy.
$1.6 billion in Bitcoin?! Who knew $2 billion of Bitcoin could fit in that small of a space. I don’t know what I’d do without $500 million in Bitcoin.
Gold is relatively heavy, and takes up space. Gold sets off metal detectors. People hide tungsten inside gold bars/coins. Gold is expensive to securely store and/or transport. Gold can be, and has been confiscated by government.
Bitcoin has no weight, takes up no space. Memorized private keys cannot be detected, nor confiscated. Bitcoin cannot be counterfeited. Bitcoin is inexpensive to securely store and/or transmit.
New gold can be, and is being mined. There will never be more than 21 million BTC — there aren’t enough Bitcoin for every millionaire to have 1.
Gold is so silly… but its hard to deny that I would like a brick for myself. 😛
Any government can confiscate or snatch up that gold easy. They do it all the time. Little tougher for them to seize btc…
Yeah id rather have the gold.
I would honestly pick cold hard gold if I ever had the chance. Bitcoin is awesome but there is no need to rely on it entirely. (Computer engineer btw)
