GoldMoney and Bitcoin Magazine have worked together to produce a documentary that attempts to capture the thoughts and feelings of Cyprus residents after their bank accounts were frozen in March 2013.
I very much sympathize with the old school goldbug scepticism about Bitcoin. It’s very reassuring to feel the weight of your money in your hand, and I don’t believe that Bitcoin meets with Mises regression theorem. But even if you don’t see Bitcoin as a sound form of money, you have got to admit that it’s damned useful! Bitcoin is perhaps the best alternative available at the moment for those suffering under the fiat banking system. As such it’s great to see an increasing number of traditional goldbug institutions, such as GoldMoney, embrace Bitcoin.
In a new podcast GoldMoney’s Andy Duncan discusses Bitcoin with the Bitcoin Foundation’s Jon Matonis. They discuss Bitcoin’s volatility, it’s dependence on the internet, 1 yr and 10 yr predictions for the currency and the ongoing Bitcoin vs Gold debate.

In the below video GoldMoney’s James Turk and Félix Moreno de la Cova discuss gold, Bitcoin and competing currencies.
As always, Mr Turk has some interesting comments. But I think what he is really saying here is: Hey guys, Bitcoin is cool, I get it. …but I still prefer gold. Fair enough.
So much to blog about, so little time.
