Gold just collects dust? Two more financial companies disagree

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

"Bullion is not liquid," says Ian Lee, a business school professor at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. "It sits down in the basement and collects dust":

Tell that to, among others, AuSecure --

-- still another company that is mobilizing vaulted gold for trading, payment, and saving purposes all over the world. Today AuSecure became partners with Uphold, which describes itself as "the world's fastest-growing cloud-based financial service platform."

According to the announcement, Uphold customers now can redeem money in their accounts for gold -- "coins or bars in any weight or denomination" -- through AuSecure:

"'Gold investment is something that everyone should make -- no matter your country, currency, or portfolio,' said Hadi Saeid, founder and CEO of Ausecure. 'Our integration with Uphold provides the opportunity for our customers to have an even more accessible, secure, and transparent experience in buying, holding, moving, and redeeming gold.'"

Of course you have to do your own due diligence with such financial companies. They are not banks with government insurance for their deposits. On the other hand, since they're not banks, they may be less susceptible to "bail-ins" and freezing of accounts by governments. Your metal should be kept outside the government-controlled banking system.

In any case let's get past the propaganda of college professors and financial establishment pundits who know only the past, not the present and future: Gold remains not just money but superior money, and with negative interest rates descending like vultures on the world, gold's advantages as money increase every day.
