Really...

If we go into a survival situation in which there isn't electricity your silver will be just as useless as my Bitcoin. There will be only one currency: food (and possibly bullets). Will it eventually buy something? Sure. But in the short term chaos phase you are referring to metal really isn't the asset you need.

The fact that Bitcoin lives online is it's biggest strength and weakness. I believe in the information age it is a far greater strength.

If you conduct all your transactions with silver I applaud you. If you conduct (online) transactions with Federal Reserve currency that could have conducted with Bitcoin I would encourage you to rethink your position.
