If I have silver in my hand, no one is going to make a bomb out of it. If I cash my silver in for FRNs or bitcoin, someone can make bombs out of the silver I had.
Also, if the economy collapses I can make life saving medicine from my silver. I cannot even make a paperweight out of bitcoins.
I'll keep stacking silver, you are welcome to invest in bitcoins or FRNs if you like but I will not be joining you.
Well, I would be stacking silver if there was any to be had locally... Every dealer in the area is OUT.
