Owning precious metals and using them for barter is no different than gift certificates, paper checks or a pan of lasagna for the person who cleans your garage out for you.
There are many companies that sell gold and silver and people have invested heavily. This company should be no different. If people agreed to use it to exchange as a unit of value, there is no law against that either so long as you do not try to trick someone into thinking it's government money (why you would do that I don't know). So, clearly the rights of this company have been violated and their property has basically been stolen, in my opinion. I hope everyone will join the lawsuit against the FEDS. One news outlet wrongly suggested that a customer was suing LD, but he was not. He was joining their class action suit.
