  1. Hi James and readers. I would like to know if you had $ 100 000.00 In witch cryptocurrency would you invest and why?

    1. Hi John,

      at this point I’m on the sidelines until it becomes clear which is the best gold-backed cryptocurrency. So far I would only back 100% gold crypto’s as I am not interested in the gold miners. If I had $100,000 to invest in gold I would park it in for now, and then move half of it to a gold-backed crypto when an established gold-backed crypto becomes apparent.

  2. Sorry that is a gold backed cryptocurrency.
