Money Observer: No, Bitcoin Isn't Gold

LONDON, 6 August 2018 – Comment from BullionVault features today in an article comparing gold with crypto-currency Bitcoin published by UK investment magazine Money Observer.

"Bitcoin couldn't be less like gold," says BullionVault director of research Adrian Ash.

"Gold's essence is its physicality and indestructability...[It] has been seen as the ultimate commodity in all cultures and ages as a store of value."

Bitcoin's only use to date, in contrast, has been "to buy illegal stuff outside of the legal monetary system."
