I often get the feeling that

I often get the feeling that people think that one has to "choose sides" between either precious metals OR Bitcoin.. which I don't really understand at all.

I think few here would argue with the benefits of storing wealth in something physical.

But in the internet age with global transactions taking place 24/7.. Bitcoin sure has a great potential because it's way easier and cheaper to use Bitcoin for a transaction than it is to physically move some precious metal to your favorite online shop! :)

Next to this, it's from and by the people and not controlled by a single nation or central banks.

I think a healthy combination of BOTH is the way of go!

Edit: Apparently there are people who have enough faith in this system to put over 100 mln Euro on it:
