Gold that has become radioactive is not usable.

Bitcoin cannot become "radioactive" ....

 

Ok... ok.... worst case scenario; The entire world is consumed in a Nuclear war and there are no longer any power grids and the "internet" as we know it has been destroyed.... then we probably won't know the difference.

Neither gold, or bitcoin will have any value in the aftermath of a nuclear war. The ONLY precious metal will be Lead. ...and besides, most of the USA's gold is in basement vaults in the banks in New York City, in case international transactions need to be made between governments, in gold. Whether it is radioactive or not, the gold in Fort Knox is only a symbol, which with the USA now 22 TRILLION dollars in debt, printing money with no backing whatsoever, it far exceeds the entir

I've just been reading, here in England, that the UK plan on making BRIT Coin. I don't know if it's a joke or not. 

Rishi Sunak knows all about this, he raised the subject months ago. Reuters and ‘Moneyweek’ have reported on it. (perhaps in the future we will need a COVID passport and a Bitcoin wallet to buy or sell at the local supermarket?!)

In case of "limited nuclear war" however Bitcoin would be the preferred store of value.

The Internet itself was designed (or I should specify email specifically) to survive limited nuclear war scenarios by re-routing messages around the world with a TTL (time to live) of 72 hours.

 

We can also put Bitcoin in Cold storage in a bunker somewhere which would survive any nuclear blast.

I've also heard that some in cold storage will be heading to the moon one of these years.

There was even Bond movie based on this premise:

The Scheme: Rather than stealing gold from Fort Knox, and facing the logistical nightmare of transporting the bulky and heavy metal, Auric Goldfinger planned to detonate an atomic bomb inside the US gold repository. The "dirty bomb" would irradiate the US gold reserve, thereby increasing the value of gold and his own stockpile. 

BOND: "$15,000,000,000 in gold bullion weighs 10,500 tons. 60 men would take 12 days to load it onto 200 trucks. Now, at the most, you're going to have 2 hours before the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines move in and make you put it back."

GOLDFINGER: "Who mentioned anything about removing it?"

Atomic Bomb (Goldfinger)

Gadget: Atomic Bomb

Movie: Goldfinger

Owner: Chinese Government

Status: Seized This small-scale atomic bomb, its intended use was to be detonated inside the vault at Fort Knox. The bomb was build and supplied to Goldfinger by the Red Chinese Government national Mr Ling.

Use: The atomic bomb was placed in the main vault of Fort Knox, and was set on timer to detonate, thus rendering all the gold radioactive for 58 years, putting the world economy in disaster. As time was running out and Bond was trapped in the vault, without skills to defuse it, however, all was fine when an army official arrived at the last minute to defuse the bomb, stopping it at an ironic "007" seconds.

Specs: The atomic bomb was housed in a steel case about 6 foot long, by 3 foot high, the timing device was built into the case, which was on top of a wheeled trolley. The core of the weapon was a combination of cobalt and iodine, which enabled the device to initiate a small scale nuclear explosion.

Whether it is radioactive or not, the gold in Fort Knox is only a symbol, which with the USA now 22 TRILLION dollars in debt, printing money with no backing whatsoever, it far exceeds the entire gold reserves of the entire Planet Earth, several times over.

Accordingly, there are no provisions to check on it until after I die.

@PudgyDogecoin is considered a meme, however, misinformation can lead to people avoiding it. Doge and it's community has done some pretty nice things. It was pushed by Elon Musk and whales have been holding it a while. The Media has been pressuring people with FUD to sell out, and manage to cause people to sell, but to those who believe in the coin, hodl. Doge also has some similar coins such as Shiba Coin, Baby Doge, etc. However believers hold on to the original. Despite the media calling it a joke, there is a high expectation, even a probability that Doge will go up in a few years.

That being said, the prime focus in the market of crypto seems to be Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Cardano, to some extent, Ethereum Classic, the original over Ethereum.

The value of the dollar currency is depreciating over time. So Crypto and Gold/Silver are being bought out.

      Daniel 12:6 Jehovah sends an angel to ask another angel: “How long will it be to the end of these marvelous things?” The other angel "the man clothed in linen" is inspired by Jehovah, raises both hands to Heaven and answers twice! One at verse 7, then verses 11 & 12. Just as the angel raises both hands to Heaven, there are 2 fulfillments, there are 2 beasts, the first dies, but rises again with greater power today. This who Jesus spoke about at Matthew 24: 15 “Therefore, when you catch sight of the disgusting thing that causes desolation, as spoken about by Daniel the prophet, standing in a holy place (let the reader use discernment). 
      Today we can use discernment as we see the dashing to pieces of the “power” of the holy ones in the hindrance of the “public” ministry caused by Covid19. We will see a greater attack on that ministry of Spiritual Israel under the rule of the King of the South as the world turns on religion. 
      Jesus stated that no man knows the day or hour, that was true then, because only Jehovah knew how long He gave Satan to prove his point. Only Jehovah could look into the last days and see when the constant feature would stop, the days are counted from then until the first day people will enjoy true happiness. This is the most important day to live for.
      John 4:23 states "Nevertheless, the hour is coming, and it is now, when the true worshippers will worship the Father with spirit and truth, for indeed, the Father is looking for ones like these to worship him." Why is God having to search for "True Worshippers"? Because the world is almost all "False Worshippers", denied understanding as stated at Daniel 12:10.  It's amazing how He has hidden the truth from minds, religions formed before the last days were formed without all the facts, even though they could read it over and over, because of their heart’s inclination, He has hidden the facts from them. How the primary resurrection will occur on Earth, that the land would be apportioned out to those choosing to live as a subject of the sovereignty of the Almighty God Jehovah. 
      Jehovah longs to talk with His friends of old like Noah, Abraham, David as well as Daniel. Daniel has seen Michael/Jesus stand up and the start of the resurrection which will benefit him, how he will stand up for his lot. verse 13. God has promised them the "Promised Land", a greater land then the small area of Israel, the whole planet will become a blessed restoration of the Edenic starting place. Matthew 19:28 Jesus said to them: “Truly I say to you, in the re-creation, when the Son of man sits down on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will sit on 12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel. Consider too Acts 3:21 "Heaven must hold this one within itself until the times of restoration of all things of which God spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets of old." The true reward that so many have hoped for now has a starting date!    
      If you have given your life to Jehovah and enjoy a relationship with Him, Read and Meditate on Daniel 12, pray for insight and understanding, for knowledge, wisdom, for faith and integrity for the days ahead!  For whether we live or die, we belong to Jehovah and will enjoy our lot just like Daniel.
