Is Bitcoin a Better Investment Than Gold?

I was interested in investing on Gold but saw couple of articles backing the idea of investing in bitcoins rather than gold.

Any thoughts guys ?

freak,

That is the best Forex article ever published on TL. Thanks a lot.

actually neither gold nor btc are investment vehicles...

as trades
bitcoin is easier... btc is essentially a digital bearer bond.
over the next few years - btc has more upside potential in terms of USD - and also way more downside potential
ie btc offers a better variance trading opportunity... gold offers a better safety opportunity.

Functions of money:

1. Medium of exchange;
2. Unit of account: Money is the common standard for measuring relative worth of goods and service;
3. Store of value.

Through history, several forms of currency were used (salt, rocks, shells, etc.), but only silver and gold were able to simultaneously and for long periods of time perform the function number 3.

I don't think so. i think Gold is a better way to reserve money because it always appreciate even in a stock market crash.

I guess bitcoin and gold are two different trading commodities and every investment avenue is associated with high risks, so invest wisely.

I have noticed that the gold also get some dip after the GBP and buying it might be a profitable option.
