  • Best Currency In 2014 [View instapost]
    The mining concentration problem is hardly worse than a year ago.
    So far, experience has shown that miners migrate to other pools whenever the dominant pool nears 50% of the hash power. This has been the case since the early GPU mining days (2011). In any case, it is in the interest of every owner of expensive mining hardware that bitcoin/Bitcoin survives and thrives, so there is a strong incentive not to join a mining pool if it is large enough to give "bad press". As such, it is a self regulating system.

    Great article.

    In particular, "The problem, as always, is that we have a monetary system that is either expanding or collapsing. It has no steady state."
    is critical. If only more people understood this fact about debt-based money, we'd be much, much better off. We'll never reach a steady state economy without equity-based money...

    "...I have with the Bitcoin is that it is founded any an absolutely deceitful, dangerous and misguided political philosophy. Its entier foundation is based upon a complete misunderstanding of our monetary system..."

    What on earth are you talking about?
    "deceitful" - bitcoin: open source protocol
    vs. fiat: LIBOR-fixing, "open market committee", HSBC/Wachoiva money laundering, "primary dealer's" privilege, bail-outs, bail-ins, etc. etc. etc. ??

    "dangerous" ?? - I thought you thought it was stupid and doomed to fail - how can it also be dangerous?

    "misguided political philosophy" - becaues *you* somehow know the 'right political philosophy'?

    "complete misunderstanding of our monetary system" ?? - The irony is strong with this one...

  • Will Rhodium Ever Repeat Its 4-Year 2,000% Rally? [View article]
    Of course handling and storage must be "done right".
    There are trading companies which deal in these exotic things.
    One example is http://bit.ly/1uD20fd

    Ultrashort story.

    Both indium and tellurium ultimately have inelastic supply (by products of copper and zinc).
    Both are KEY ingredients in thin-film solar cells (CdTe - First Solar) and CIS/CIGS (Solar Frontier).

    They (particularly indium) are both useful for many other hi-tech applications where money is no object. This bodes for good upside potential (multiples) with limited downside (since production will become uneconomic and scale back if prices drop very far).


    I bought the physical suff.

    I don't know if XRHO is still in operation - it was run by Deutsche Bank.

    I bought physical rhodium at the bottom in 2009. Yes, there are expenses associated we (re)assaying upon sale, but if the quantity is sufficiently large that is OK.

    (It's the same thing for my holdings of physical tellurium and indium, BTW.)

    I see you haven't lost your sense of humor.

    Ecuador-coin is "The Bticoin Killer"??
    Surely you ARE joking.

    Nice to see more discussion of the PGM and minor metals on SA.
    And double points for calling bitcoin a start-up currency!

    I'm guessing that you and I have a similar investment focus and I suspect you'd enjoy some of my older posts (e.g. my pitch for palladium with an aside about rhodium from a few years ago - I'm having a victory lap these days!)

  • The Palladium Bull Run Is Under Way [View article]
    I saw this coming a few years back and got most of my physical palladium in the $200-300 price range. My target remains 80% of platinum's price (for which my target currently is $2000-ish. I.e. I expect Pd to reach ca. $1600.
    I also recommended Pd here on SA in 2011 when a pullback offered a good entry point for astute investors: http://seekingalpha.co...

    Pd is a no-brainer investment at this point IMHO. Fundamentals are STELLAR.
