Want to buy a Bitcoin? Want to buy MANY Bitcoins? Want to tell all your friends down the road that you had the foresight and wisdom to get involved with the entity that changed how the world handles transactions? Well, buying the ethereal currency is really quite easy.
First, find, steal, and/or earn something that is (or resembles) a recognized tenderable paper or coin. For example, head to your local dry cleaners and say, “I’d like all of your money”. These words ought to be uttered all while firmly holding your arm bent and hidden behind your open coat. This prior exercise of obtaining monies could be substituted by entering your local bank (whereby you have a savings and/or checking account), and withdrawing funds.
Now, with said monies in hand, proceed to a nearby jewelry-like, collectible store. A pseudo pawn shop if you will. One that dons very thick glass, has bars on the windows, and more times than not will require someone to ‘buzz’ you in. Once allowed to enter you will need to ask the attendant for available inventory that they have within the realm of 1 oz. gold coins. Make sure to sound and look like you know what the hell you’re talking about. This will aid in procuring the precious metal at a price not too outrageously over spot.
It may be a touch daunting at first, but really there’s nothing too it. Just keep it simple and pick the coins with great purity, and that concurrently don’t garner a sky-high premium. And like any good portfolio you’ll want to diversify. Accumulate some Maple Leafs, some Eagles, and throw in some Pamp Suisse (this way you have some non-government issues).
That’s it, you did it. You now have the asset that truly cannot be created, printed, issued, nor destroyed. The Cosmos’ currency.
See, the Bitcoin will most certainly have it’s day in the sun. Boy, will it have it’s day. But when it’s all said and done, and I mean really all said and done, one must remember that the evolved Hominin is above all else; a sensual being. And because of that, anything and everything that is virtual will always take a backseat to that which can be held.
