I have always been fascinated and intrigued by the role of gold in the development of human societies because of its compliance with sound money. My fascination with the bright yellow metal has significantly contributed to my involvement, as an engineer, in the gold mining industry and in my post graduate studies in economics. Since 2008, my interest in the field of sound money precipitated my genuine desire to understand the fundamental principles behind the newly digital assets such as Bitcoin. My participation in the Bitcoin network originates from my deep affinity towards the teaching of the Austrian School of Economics and its underlying principles supporting sound money, and because I was pleased to recognize that Bitcoin and gold are very similar as instruments to store and protect wealth. Gold has been centerpiece in the development of human societies over 6,000 years. In the new era of digitization, can Bitcoin become the new gold for the development of the future societies?
The intent of this section is to provide the reader with the reflections I have undertaken over many years to answer the above question. My personal belief is that sound money, like gold and Bitcoin, is cornerstone in the development of equitable societies. The posts are meant to be read as a sequence and are published in descending order.
