Will Crypto-currencies Replace Gold as Money? 

Alasdair Macleod, Robert Carrington and Michael Oliver return as guests on the radio program.

Some people think that crypto-currencies will replace gold as money, but Alasdair Macleod who sits on the board of directors of Goldmoney provides a very well informed opinion on that issue. Goldmoney recently has begun accepting crypto-currency accounts and it accepts a large number of various crypto-currencies for the purchase of gold, silver, platinum and palladium. How might crypto currencies exacerbate the next credit collapse and threaten fiat money? Is there a reason to anticipate crypto-currencies would then hold an advantage over fiat money?

Assuming gold prevails as the ultimate money, we want to own successful exploration companies that are finding gold money in the ground like Robert’s Newrange Gold Corp. Robert explains that company’s ongoing success and as always Michael updates us on major markets of concern.
