We have known early on that the prices of gold and silver are manipulated by the bullion banks acting as agents for the Federal Reserve. This is the only thing which keeps the fiat dollar in circulation. But with the availability of cryptocurrencies, the rigging may not last for long.

Maybe out of the collapse of Bitcoin will come a clarion call for the government to come up with a digital currency that will never steal the billions of invested digidollars again.
