We make every effort to demonstrate a balanced conversation between gold, crypto and fiat currencies when it comes to purchasing power and, whilst we strongly believe that gold is the fairest and most reliable currency on the planet, we obviously need to point out that it isn’t 100% risk free. Whilst we have seen a steady increase over time, the value of gold can fall, which means that its purchasing power can also decline.
