Corruption & Collusion In International Gold Markets

Blockchain technology will bring us greater transparency and accountability.

The opaque nature of international gold markets raises questions over their integrity. With so much corruption in precious metal markets, our governments should be leading by example and implementing increased transparency. The gold holdings of nation-states belong to the people, so why are accurate audits so hard to attain? What we fear is that opacity could be facilitating corruption and collusion.

Through public blockchains, the technology now exists to easily open commodity transactions to public scrutiny. MetalStream’s MSGLD security tokens are registered on the Ethereum blockchain and available for anyone to investigate using tools such as Etherscan. We should be demanding that our elected officials implement similar systems for national assets.

Australia claims to currently own around 80 tonnes of gold which represents the public wealth of 25.5 million citizens. The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) informs us that this gold is held in an allocated account at the London vaults of the Bank of England (BoE). This means that the BoE is the custodian of gold bars with serial numbers belonging to the RBA. The justifications given for storing Australia’s gold in London are safety and accessibility to the London Bullion Market.

Red flags appear when attempts are made to audit Australia’s public asset. There has never been a full independent audit of Australia’s gold holdings so the public is unable to verify the RBA’s claims. What is required is an audited list of gold bar serial numbers and their corresponding weights. In 2013 and 2019 the BoE allowed the RBA to conduct a partial audit of Australia’s holdings but imposed severe restrictions on how audits could be conducted. The results were not made available to the public and FOIA requests have been blocked by both the BoE and the RBA.

Over the last few years, this topic has garnered increasing public interest within Australia and professional economist John Adams has documented the situation in his excellent article on the subject. The RBA claims that it leases Australia’s gold holdings to generate a return but they have admitted that the gold never leaves the BoE vaults. Although the RBA claims that counterparties are confidential an email revealed that Australia’s gold holdings are being leased to Gold Corporation. This is an Australian company owned by the Government of Western Australia and mandated to operate the Perth Mint and market Australian gold.

Here is a summary of this confusing situation. Australia’s national gold reserves are stored in the BoE’s London vaults. These reserves cannot be fully audited to verify their quantity or quality yet they are leased to generate income. The counterparty is the Government of Western Australia who is apparently happy to pay fees on an unaudited volume of gold. The gold itself never leaves the vaults. What is really going on here?

John Adams identifies that the most probable explanation for this situation is that Gold Corporation is leasing gold from the RBA to back synthetic gold products on its balance sheet. These could be products such as allocated gold pools, Exchange Traded Funds or futures contracts on the COMEX. A situation such as this increases risk within gold markets as investors could be purchasing synthetic products not backed by physical gold. This is reminiscent of fractional reserve banking where banks are allowed to lend more money than they have in deposits.

Australia is just one example of opaque global practices concerning public gold reserves. Central banks are allowed to behave in secretive ways which would be considered unacceptable if replicated by the public. This secrecy is egregious as these are public assets which central banks hold on behalf of the people. In the case of Australia’s gold, it seems the RBA, the BoE and the Government of Western Australia may all be involved in facilitating the sale of synthetic gold products not backed by physical gold. If central banks collude in corrupt practices how can we ever expect commercial entities to behave with integrity?

The management of public resources does not need to be shrouded in such secrecy. Opacity is desirable only for those wishing to hide crimes. Where public assets are concerned we need to implement greater transparency. This could be achieved through public blockchains and we have the right to demand that governments set the standard for transparency. Greater public oversight would ensure integrity within the markets and gold-backed security tokens such as MSGLD are starting to demonstrate how this can be achieved.

The Great Reset & The Need To Own Gold

Gold offers us a safe haven for the turbulent times ahead.

There is concerning discussion about a Great Reset emanating from the world’s most powerful financial protagonists. These statements are more than idle comments, they represent the will of the financial elite to “reset” the world’s economic structure. It seems clear that big changes are being planned.

What do these financial fat cats mean by a Great Reset and how will it impact the 99.9% of the population who do not belong to the financial elite? Change is afoot but the methodology of its implementation is yet to be revealed. In times of economic upheaval, safe-haven assets such as gold have proven time and again to offer us a safe store of value.

The financial lessons of the past may be more relevant today than ever.

Those who seek truth are aware that history is written by the victors. The narratives of world events have been twisted and manipulated to bamboozle the public into false perspectives. When we look back across the last 100 years of contemporary history we realize that our educational systems and media have spoon-fed us lies that benefit the financial elite. Our history books strive to disguise the false flags, profiteering, collusion and treason which have been at the twisted roots of global events. So with a cautious sense of scepticism lets analyse the Great Reset that is being planned for us.

Talk of the Great Reset is primarily emanating from the World Economic Forum which has been criticized as a club for those profiting from resource exploitation. You can watch their propaganda video for the Great Reset here which features statements from such pillars of society as Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab and Prince Charles.

Participants of the World Economic Forum’s yearly meeting in Davos include corporations like Bayer/Monsanto, BP, Soros Fund Management, and Mastercard. This is a well-rounded group of profiteers with outstanding track records for honesty, integrity, environmental protection and supporting the poor. Sarcasm aside, it is imperative that when these guys talk we listen carefully.

As part of the Great Reset, the World Economic Forum is promoting the concept of a Fourth Industrial Revolution. In this new era, they will utilize artificial intelligence and facial recognition to track all human movement while people meld with machines. You can watch their full promotional film for the Fourth Industrial Revolution here, but the first major statement is:

The very idea of human beings as some sort of natural concept is really going to change. Our bodies will be so high-tech we won’t be able to really distinguish between what’s natural and artificial.

An excellent dissection of the World Economic Forum’s propaganda was created by Neil McCoy-Ward and should be watched here. It is clearly useful for the economic elite to use technology to track and monitor everybody but what in this discussion represents a “reset”?

Cui Bono — a principle that probable responsibility for an act or event lies with one having something to gain.

Perhaps the “reset” in Great Reset refers to resetting our financial system and there are indications this could happen. Our currencies are called fiat because they have no real basis for value. Fiat currencies are seemingly created out of thin air by accounting tricks and loaned to the people with interest that can never be repaid. It seems shocking that nobody ever seems to ask who the American people owe 27 trillion dollars to!

Since this latest incarnation of the Federal Reserve in 1913, the real purchasing power of the US dollar has been eroded by 96% through inflation. Inflation should be viewed as a hidden tax on people’s savings as it eats away at the real value of the currency, profiting the financial elite at the expense of everyone else. If you are unaware of the history of the Federal Reserve it is important to watch G. Edward Griffin discussing his seminal book The Creature From Jekyll Island here. With only 4% value left to steal in the US dollar perhaps, it’s time to “reset” the currency?

There is talk that major central banks such as the Federal Reserve and European Central Bank will soon be migrating global currencies to Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC). Such a move could allow the world’s largest financial crimes to be swept under the carpet. CBDCs could “reset” our financial systems which are already teetering on the edge of collapse.

There are rumours that CBDCs could launch in early 2021. If this happens, who knows what value we will be allowed to transfer over from our fiat savings into these new CBDCs. Any such transition should be conducted with complete transparency but this seems unlikely. The founder of the World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab recently said:

Everything will be digitalized, which can be digitalized.

With the world’s financial elite promoting a digital Great Reset it seems imperative that we look for stores of value which we can carry through the transition. Gold has been a safe store of value since ancient times and has outlasted every historical financial system. It will also outlast fiat currencies and the monumental changes that seem poised to engulf us.

To protect our financial future it seems wise to buy gold now before these changes are forced upon us. There is safety in gold.

Blockchain Is Systematically Dismantling Barriers To Precious Metal Ownership

Owning gold and silver is now easier than ever before.

Central banks are currently creating fiat currency in unprecedented volumes, making gold and silver ownership increasingly important. People are beginning to remember that to secure our economic futures we need to own precious metals. It has often been observed that all fiat currencies eventually return to their intrinsic value: zero. When that happens we need to rely on other stores of value to survive.

For most people gold and silver ownership for investment purposes has been restricted by barriers to market entry. Through the implementation of blockchain technology, we are finally beginning to witness the dismantling of these barriers. We could soon see ownership of precious metals become democratized on a global scale.

The world’s central banks have enormous leverage over our governments. The ability to create money brings opportunities for unlimited corruption and it has been suggested that bank owners are the real power behind our governments. Some of the largest banks have been accused of manipulating precious metal markets bringing them profits while the market loses. The admission by JP Morgan that they were involved in spoofing precious metals markets is only the most recent example of a bank engaging in theft. An excellent commentary on the incident can be found here at Sprott Money.

Access to precious metals for most people takes the form of jewellery which can be both valuable and aesthetically pleasing. Many cultures have ancient traditions of storing and transmitting wealth through precious metal jewellery. Gold brokers can be found at traditional markets in even the most economically challenged countries.

Compared to fiat currencies precious metals hold value indefinitely. Given the limited volumes of precious metals available, it is in the interest of the world’s bankers to restrict access to them. This restriction has been created through barriers to entry which keep the majority of the population out of the market.

One barrier to entry for investors is the premiums charged by brokers. These premiums known as rent-seeking are created through restricted access to supply. As brokers are often the only vendors available to purchase bullion from, they are able to charge prices significantly higher than the market’s spot price.

Many brokers also set investment thresholds for bullion which are a further barrier to entry for small investors. For example, some brokers for gold bullion may set the purchase threshold at 1 ounce. These thresholds combined with the premiums charged for precious metal bullion effectively lock small investors out of the market.

Not only do small investors lack the minimum investment amount to buy bullion, but they are also aware that the premiums charged can erode or destroy their profits should they need to liquidate their investments. These practices are profitable for brokers but have a broader impact of restricting investment in precious metals to the wealthier segments of society.

Rent-seeking in precious metal markets is being eliminated by blockchain technology. Two inherent qualities of blockchain tokens are the speed at which they can be transferred and the negligible costs of transfer when compared to traditional financial systems. Investors in tokens backed by precious metals can easily compare vendors to determine how much above the spot price they are being charged and choose accordingly.

Improving the liquidity of precious metal ownership while reducing the price will bring increased numbers of investors into the market. This process will be amplified by the fractional nature of blockchain tokens. In the future, investors will not only be able to purchase precious metals in individual grams, they will be able to purchase fractions of a gram. We could soon see true democratization of the precious metal markets bringing ownership opportunities to all sectors of society.

It is important to note that not all precious metal-backed tokens are created equal. Unlike MetalStream’s MSGLD some tokens do not allow owners physical access to their precious metals. This is an important point of distinction because access to physical ownership helps to ensure accurate auditing and reduces the opportunity for fraud. Owning precious metals traditionally carries the costs of storing and insuring those precious metals. MSGLD absorbs these fees for investors removing yet another barrier to entry.

An increasingly democratic market for precious metals will offer greater numbers of people the chance to actively secure their financial future against the ravages of fiat currencies. With strong auditing structures, the blockchain should also help to reduce fraud in the precious metal markets. The combination of precious metals and blockchain could be about to herald a brighter economic future.
