Cryptocurrency to mimic gold?
by Paul Joseph Watson
Veteran investor Ray Dalio warns that governments across the globe are planning to outlaw Bitcoin because the financial elite cannot tolerate something that they don’t have monopoly control over.
“Every country treasures its monopoly on controlling the supply and demand. They don’t want other monies to be operating or competing,” Dalio told Yahoo Finance.
“So, I think that it would be very likely that you will have it, under a certain set of circumstances, outlawed the way gold was outlawed,” he added.
Dalio cited the 1934 Gold Reserve Act, which ended all private holding and use of gold as money. This followed the previous year’s Executive Order 6102, which made it a criminal offense for U.S. citizens to own or trade gold and led to a widespread confiscation program.
