What in the world is Goldmoney + Friday night at home goods + Joe Rogan meets Goldmoney 18k Gold card!steemCreated with Sketch.

in #blog4 years ago

Hello Steemians!

It's been awhile since I've posted about Goldmoney, as life has gotten quite busy for me lately.

If there is one thing I learned from my Where in the world is Goldmoney challenge, https://steemit.com/steemit/@goldmatters/goldmoney-brings-world-together-on-steemit-over-where-in-the-world-is-goldmoney-challenge-part-i ) from the number of awesome questions I got from Steemians, there needs to be some clarity as to WHAT in the world Goldmoney is.

IMG_0903.JPG

If you already know what Goldmoney is, and have been waiting for an excuse to open a Goldmoney holding and start buying some gold, you can start here: https://www.goldmoney.com/w/goldmatters

For a simple explanation, taken right from the Goldmoney website: "Goldmoney is the easiest way to invest in physical gold and silver bullion online. We safeguard nearly $2 billion of assets for clients in 150 countries."

Also taken from the site: " A Goldmoney Holding is a custodial account with allocated, segregated, and physically redeemable bullion belonging to its owner. It’s more secure than traditional accounts at a bank or investment firm, and has lower risks and costs than owning precious metals ETFs. "

For those you prefer a brief introduction to Goldmoney via YouTube, check this out:

Dont want to commit to 4 minutes??

Here is the 30 second version!

For those of you screaming "GOLDMATTERS JUST TELL ME WHAT IN THE WORLD GOLDMONEY IS!!".....

The best way I can explain is that Goldmoney looks and feels like an online bank account, but instead of maintaining a balance in your local currency, you own allocated precious metals in a vault of your choosing around the world.

So instead of having a balance in USD, or CAD, etc, your balance is in gold grams. You can add to your precious metals holdings over time to use as savings, or transact, spend or send the gold.

Goldmoney is not a cryptocurrency...it is a way for you to own physically vaulted gold, silver, platnium or palladium.

Goldmoney is a Publicly listed corporation XAU, XAUMF.
..........

Now for what everyone is reading this blog for: Friday night at home goods!!!

Home Goods might not seem like the most exciting adventure for a Friday night, but when you find things like this creepy black velvet hand to put your 18k gold Goldmoney card in, it can be!

IMG_0166.JPG

Of course creepy black velvet hands aren't the only interesting thing at Home Goods on a friday night. To celebrate the upcoming fall season, we found this amazing gold pumpkin!

IMG_2958.JPG

Leave it up to me to find the only book in Home Goods about gold:

IMG_2959.JPG

Normally I wouldn't just stand in the middle of a store and read a random book, but a book on gold, why it is a store of value, why it is such a special element, it's historical ability to maintain purchasing power over time - all up my ally!

IMG_2961.JPG

Finally Steemians, I would like to share something very cool and very special with you. Remember the Goldmoney 18k Gold card featured above with the creepy black velvet hand and featured in several of my previous blogs?

It has made the big time! Recently Joe Rogan: https://mobile.twitter.com/joerogan had a podcast where he got to hold one of these cards for the first time... and he went crazy!

Check it out just a couple minutes into this shortened clip:

It's an absolute must watch video, and there is a detailed explanation of Goldmoney after Joe Rogans reaction to the gold card. He also asks to hold the Goldmoney gold card AGAIN at the end of the video.

I am hoping through the various methods in this blog Steemians have gained a greater understanding of what in the world Goldmoney is.

Based on the question I receive and feedback from this blog, I can delve deeper when I find the time to write the next one. Thanks for reading Steemians and stay cool!!

Awesome gol money master card is amazing its incredible and that your tshirt is good
and that pumkin you hold in nice ilike a gold.

Thank you so much for reading about Goldmoney :)

Its okay bro and you just didn't post any posts fron long term why ?

Yes I've gotten more busy so my time available to post has gotten more limited, but I still have time to engage and read on Steemit every day :)

Oh bro but dont leave your work bro keep it up

Sir really so nice steemit working, thanks for good sharing

Following for updates.....

Amazing gold money master card. It's absolutely amazing........
I want to use it. I'm from Bangladesh. Is thus card supported our country

wow fantastic post @goldmatters, you really explained well that what gold money actually is, well i definitely spread the gold money to big investors which i know should take interest in this metal bank. thanks you very much for sharing.

Thank you for reading about Goldmoney! I would love for help spreading the word:)

Oh, I need to get this card!

It's pretty awesome!! Thanks for reading about Goldmoney :)

I want to get this card goldmatters.

Apply for a card through your Goldmoney holding!

Black hand was too creepy I'm out! Lol I will open account one day I've already done some research. The cubes of gold are too powerful to resist. How does the card hold up over time? Are u putting that sucker in your wallet?

The card holds up very well! It's gold! It could stay at the bottom of the ocean for 5000 years and be fine :)... and the card is kept at a secure undisclosed location ;)

What a interesting article @goldmatters as a bullion collector the move to digital trading has risen to new heights over the past few years. I think the biggest benefit is for people that travel and are not in one physical location to ensure their coins and bars are safe and secure at all times. This opens up the door for people who thought that having to worry about safes etc in the premesis is no longer a blocker and makes the transition to jump on the bandwagon so to speak so much easier. I've just followed you and hope for more great content in my feed.

Thank you for your insightful thoughts! I agree. It's comforting to have your metal stored and vaulted with armed security.

No problem, it's an exciting time to be a stacker that's for sure!

Wow..brilliant i want that goldmoney card..this gonna be an enteresting! Great article sir @goldmatters

Thank you for reading about Goldmoney :).... and for knighting me!

U5dtE1TSZgC1z4HSJ8RTNXcr7ukm2QX.gif

@goldmatters, you really explained well that what gold money actually is,

I will go through the material carefully as.SUCH AN QUALITATIVE CONTENT.

Nice graphic!! I hope that fiat is being exchanged for GOLD :)

its nice to see some gold color in this post gold is shining:) btw where you found snow in this time of year? As i get with goldmoney you can invest in gold and silver? are they planning to expand for more variances?

Lol the picture is from a few months back:) it was cold in the snow without my shirt and hat let me tell you!........ With a Goldmoney holding you can also buy platnium and palladium in addition to silver and gold

That is a great work..well done...u think and concerned of least people's...thank u for share continue shine @goldmatters.

Thanks for reading about goldmoney:)

best explanation ever :) thanks for telling us about goldmoney :)

Thank you! I decided it was time once and for all to make things clear since I was getting so many questions about Goldmoney!

yeah its the best thing you know if u didnt explained it like this the people wont get it and they would just ignore it like other posts get ignored 😍

again thanks for the nice explanation sir 😊😉😍😘😗😙😚

I recommended a client that flies private and forgot to ask if you guys offer a referral fee... Btw, when are you guys doing the "goldmoney was here" thing again?

There is a referal program through your Holding..... https://www.goldmoney.com/holding-referral-program .... as for #goldmoneywashere I'm not sure I will have time to run another of those for a while BUT there are regular giveaways on social media that include a chance to win gold....https://steemit.com/money/@goldmatters/attention-steemit-goldmoney-gold-giveaway-on-twitter-and-instagram

Great goal man, I'm gonna research more about this gold money.
I just saw your post in the tag promoted, in second or third place and makes me wonder, how much do you invest in promote? I normally promote with something between 0.1 and 1.0 SBD, I know is not much, but I expected to get more views with that, and maybe Im doing it wrong or maybe sending more money could help me more. Im sorry to bother you with this topic in your post, but you seem to be n experienced user here.

Thanks for reading!... I would not consider myself an expert beyond anything Goldmoney related lol but to try an answer your question.... Ive noticed generally that it takes quite a bit of promotion investment to get the extra views. Anything lower than the top 5.... well I'm not sure its going to be worth it. This will probably improve as steemit continues to grow. You can actually see exactly how much people are spending by clicking the down arrow next to the current payout amount. It will show you the promotion cost of each post. Good luck! :)

Oh ok now I understand, I'm gonna start to pay more attention to those promote costs on big money posts and see how it might work. Thanks a lot for your answer man, really helped me. Good luck to you too!

Great and educational post about Goldmoney :) Keep up with the good work!

P.S. I can not believe how cool that Goldmoney card is. Now I will be on a personal mission of obtaining one.

Great to have you back and the Joe Rogan clip is awesome! A couple quick things, first, make sure you claim your pocket Steemit tokens before the program expires on Monday. You can use them as rewards for future Goldmoney contests. @biophil has all of the details on his blog. Secondly, did you know you can now buy gold with Steem? How cool is that!! @veldtgold has all the details on his blog.

Very cool! Thank you for the resteem! Yes I wrote about turning Steem into gold a while back, but the more ways to do this the better:) https://steemit.com/goldmoney/@goldmatters/turn-steem-into-gold

Just resteemed this to my 3,000 followers! tip!

I haven't considered gold yet but what you write here makes a lot of sense and I forgot about Peter Schiff since reading Crash Proof years ago... something definitely to look into further now. Thank you for this eye-opening post.

Your welcome! There is lots of info on the Goldmoney website as a resource :)

This seems like a good way to get some gold assets, or am I getting this wrong?

You are getting exactly right:) Goldmoney is a very inexpensive way to purchase gold :)

Well, then it's time to get started then. Thank you, this is really handy.

Delivered as promised! Check it out at the footer of my latest beer tasting! I hope it gets you more clicks!

Let's keep in touch. I'll look after your future posts!

Fantastic!! Thank you so much

This is very detailed explanation. Thank you @goldmatters.

Thanks Geekgirl! How's seattle???

Summer is over, weather is getting cooler. Rains will start soon and things be normal again.

For a second I thought that was a haiku!!

Now I know what haiku is :)

Geek girl is so cool
She has Steemit expertise
Curation she does

Gold is going to the moon faster than steem with the recent bullish movement.

Thanks for explaining about goldmoney clearly @goldmatters
Now i can share it with other people and investers and hope in future i too will able to invest in goldmoney.
All the best for goldmoney

Thank you for reading!

I had no idea what this was until I just watched these videos. This is really cool idea and I think it will be the way of the future. I was thinking that if I opened an account, I would never spend any of it (Which isn't a bad thing.) but it would be awful nice to have it if you needed emergency cash quick. Thanks for sharing this information!

Thanks for checking out Goldmoney :)

Thanks for sharing with us.
We should cut that pumpkin and take its seeds so we can grow more gold pumpkins :P

I remember you showing us the card in a post before as well, probably the best MasterCard I've seen and will look into it .

Ps- loving the shirt

Thank you! You are a great supporter:)

I just saw your goldmoneywashere challenge that ended last month what a cool Idea if you ever do another I live in Florida and can try to get a photo of something historic or iconic in the area.

I love it! I'll still take submissions at the least ill likely resteem it ;)

Thanks a lot for the support, I'll advertise you my next post!

Thanks!!

Is the twitter contest still going on? I did not receive my gold yet.. lol😎 #GOLDMONEYISEVERYWHERE

Why gold but not STEEM?;)

Why not both? :)

why not both hey

Why would I invest in gold, please?

Great question! Gold is not actually an investment per say. I think of gold as savings, or simply - money. Gold has maintained its purchasing power vs every fiat currency over time historically. So its not a vehicle to make you rich..... but a vehicle to keep you from going poor :)

You did it, maken it even more clear what is goldmoney about. Perfect vids and information. I wondering who is not on the GOLD ! Thanks for this good post.

Thanks for checking out my post about Goldmoney!

That dude looks rather golden himself!

You have already been wrong about this blog. I will try to see you soon.

This is really worth investing for especially that the price of Gold is appreciating over the last ten years. Thanks for posting such an informative article.

Thanks for reading about Goldmoney!

I was wondering where your posts were, glad you are back, needed this update ;)... Soo there is a Gold Money card??? dude that's cool!! (BTW love the snowman)

Thank you! Yes its very cool :)

Thanks for this post @goldmatters with the help of your post we will understand about the goldmoney

That's what I'm hoping for! Thanks for reading about goldmoney

thanks you very much for telling us what exactly the gold money is, i think this information needs to reach all over the world so the peoples get most benefit out of it, upvoted and resteemed.

Thanks! That's how I feel too! Goldmoney's core mission is to democratize access to gold.

Grt post dear

Thnx for posting about the goldmoney..

Thanks for reading about Goldmoney!

Peter Schiff doesn't know "Sh*t about money or the economy. Do not follow him if you want to earn money or keep your money. He is a bullion salesman... all day, every day. If you want to know something about how money works in the economy, read Steve Keen, especially his book debunking economics or go watch Mike Stathis (who will show you how much of a know-nothing Schiff is (ignore the anti-antisemitism if it rubs you the wrong way and just listen to the message).

Plus the economy can't be understood from a purely technical or fundamental perspective anyway since the vast majority of it it is not only systemically corrupt (the large set of processes), but structurally corrupt (the actual container of the system and its design). So, you have to learn about the corruption of it all - otherwise you won't know what is going on. Most information has no value or weight whatsoever because it doesn't recognize the corruption of it all.

How do you play a game like baseball or monopoly and win if the game was designed for you to lose? You might get lucky some of the time... but the answer is... you can't. Just understanding the rules as written will not help. You need to understand the design and how it is set up for you to lose. And then when you hear information and the news, you will know who to believe, who doesn't know sh*t from shinola, who is a thief, and who is a pumper and a dumper, and who is just a salesman selling gold, selling a newsletter, selling a fund or scaring you into selling your holdings.

I repeat. DO NOT FOLLOW PETER SCHIFF. His track record is all you need to see. Learn to look for solid track records. Also understand that people who promote newsletters also tend to be wrong most of the time and are just selling newsletters. If they knew anything, they would stick to making money and not be selling newsletters. Fund managers also tend to under-perform the market 90+ percent of the time.... and they change the name of their funds so that their track records are brand new and their losses are attached to a fund that no longer exists. Beware of funds that have very little track record.

Gold is a tricky subject. Most of the gold that people are buying is stolen gold. It has been stolen over the ages from your grandparents and it is being sold back to you now that the fiat dollar has been inflated away. Other gold has been stolen from other people around the world and restolen from various thieves over time. Read the book Gold Warriors Or listen to Bix Weir or GATA.

Plus, there is so much gold that is not accounted for, so the supply is much greater than all the numbers they are telling you in "official" statistics. Which means if you go by supply and demand economics, the supply would water down the value of your gold. But in reality because the market is so rigged, supply and demand economics does not apply. The paper derivatives market and the corrupt bankers control all of the prices of the gold, silver, commodities, and every other underlying asset. Since the market has been computerized, it is even more corrupt than it was in history. Buyer beware!

If you still like gold and you like the idea of goldmoney... check out digixDAO; which is a blockchain version of gold. You get the benefit of goldmoney plus the blockchain. It is still in development, but it will be the leading edge in transparency for the gold market.

Gold is an old monetary system. The fiat is the current system. The blockchain is the future. Hold all three. Just figure out much you want to hold of each. The problem with gold is that no one knows how much gold is out there. There is likely more out there any anyone knows. Lots of it is hidden And that which they say is there, really isn't, like Fort Knox gold. (Thanks Sec. Munchin for checking on it after all these years :-)). It also can be counterfeited as well as deluded, and it has throughout history. The other problem is that no one has gold, so there is really no one to transact with (at least in pure gold sense). So, we can't go back to a gold standard because no one has it in their possession.

Also, the current economy can't be sustained on the current amount of gold, unless we have a fractional system for gold. There isn't a one to one amount - so with the amount of current money in circulation; we would have to have more gold to equal all this fiat in circulation. So, if we have a fractional system, we are back to the same problems as fiat; with a fractional system. Another topic for another day is that in order to return to a gold standard there would need to be a massive revaluation of the current fiat system --- think of the value in the fiat floating into gold. Yeah it would spike the value of gold, but then we would have far less gold then we need to conduct the transactions we need and for everyone to have money.

There just isn't enough flexibility in the supply of gold to substantiate the size of our current modern economy or the future economy. We need money that has the same properties as gold - unit of account, fungible, scarce, resistant to counterfeiting, ability to easily transact, a store of value, etc.... just not gold.

Money in a philosophical sense is only representative of value. That is all we are doing. Measuring value, holding value, transacting value, dividing value. Over history, we have chosen items to be this thing that represents value. Things that have these properties tend to be the best because they meet the most properties that make for good money. Anything that meets this criteria, can be money. People have used shells, beads, wood sticks, and yes gold and silver. In fact, at times, no money was needed, and people bartered (not universally), and people just traded things that they thought were of equal value. However, that is a difficult system, because if I have a chick and you have a cow, we may not be able to make a fair trade since the cow is not easily divisible. It doesn't have the divisible property. Gold and silver have a good track record for being money. But they are not the only things that can be money. However, the difficulty with gold and silver and any other underlying asset, are that they tend to be fixed (or relatively fixed) in terms of supply. And having a fixed monetary system is very difficult, because then there is no way to create growth in the economy.

Take a step back and you will see that money is not paper, it is not gold, and it is not bitcoin. It is value. And value is subjective. The idea is that we as a society choose to agree on what has value so that we can have a medium of exchange that we all agree on. However, going forward, there will be lots of items (i.e., crypto-currencies that people will hold in the local, state, national and global community). Money going forward will be based on lots of things that serve as value.... value in networks, value in markets, value in community, etc.

Thoughts?

Good posting and agree with much. However, watch

. Rob makes the point that you also raise vis a vis blockchain. Not so much that a coin/token is backed by gold but rather the immutable record prevents double spend, fractional banking and general corruption. Also, since science divides "time" into infinitesimal amounts, nano second for lunch, nope need more time. So too any fiat can fall relative to gold such that say the GBP is worth 0.0000000001 Kg of gold. If ICO's can price their tokens in tiny valuations there is no reason in this digital age that gold cannot rise to what might seem an exorbitant price but this will simply be a reflection of the value of a fiat measured against a "gold standard" just as one meter is defined as " as the distance traveled by light in a vacuum in 1/299,792,458 of a second." So it would be easy to define a gold standard in a similar way and then measure against that. What about silver?

Load of what I have written is missing. Not showing in Preview. Have to work out how to post :) Thanks.
