For those of you who have been following this blog for some time, the headline above will be of no surprise. Yet it will be very exciting nevertheless.
Yes – it has happened. The gold spot price has broken the previous intraday high of $US1,923.70 per ounce set in August 2011.
At this time of drafting this blog post, the gold spot price is $US1,46.92.
With unprecedented levels of money printing; geo-politics tensions; political and civil unrest; coronavirus; and social media warfare – the environment seems to be just right for a growing gold price. And this could be the case for many, many months to come.
So hold onto those gold coins.
And for the silver stackers – don’t feel left out. For the silver spot has just rocketed past $US24 an ounce – following a few days of resistance at $US23.
For the reasons outlined above – safe haven demand for these monetary precious metals is HOT, HOT, HOT, right now. Congratulations to the prepared.
For more information about the investment potential for gold see the following Goldsmith Money blog articles.
To say the team at Goldsmith Money was ‘excited’ about the upcoming Taurion Treasure Hunt – would be a mammoth understatement.
Aside from the game looking awesome and thousands of dollars worth of prizes to be won. This is the final Taurion test before it goes live to the world. The Alpha Test.
This is likely our final chance to get a simple the feel for this new global, trustless and decentralised gaming economy – which promises to open up a whole new world of player driven opportunity and entertainment.
Yes – we have our new gaming PC ready to go – 32GB RAM; ASUS RT2060 8GB Graphics Card; a couple of ASUS 27″ Gaming Monitors and a new webcam. Far more than is actually needed to play.
Yes – there will be plenty of Taurion Alpha Test videos. There will also be plenty of Alpha Test live streaming – both YouTube and Twitch. But all this is hardly important to Goldsmith Money. The only thing that really matters is of course…
With more sponsors than the Italian Grand Prix, the Taurion Treasure Hunt promises to be bigger than Ben Hur.

And the list of prizes is just huge… super HUGE! Too many to report on here – just click on the prize link and see for yourself.
So many great prizes to be won and Goldsmith Money plans on winning many of them. And we are not afraid to get our hands dirty to do it. Raid, plunder, loot, steal, destroy. All is fair in the resource rich, yet desolate alien planet of Taurion.
So what does Taurion look like?
Well just recently the following video began circulating within the Twitter sphere…
TAURION: The 3 Starter Cities are now “safe areas”. Opposing factions may not enter. Speed of vehicles are 3x faster than normal.
Make sure to register to claim a FREE starter pack (5 free units and an account) so you can help test and WIN.
Yes there will be ‘safe spaces’ for the faint of heart. Goldsmith Money doesn’t plan on spending too much time here though. Instead we plan on being out hunting for the prizes. I dare say the only time we will be returning to said ‘safe spaces,’ is to claim our many, many prizes.

Hope to see you there!
Oh – and one more thing. Just in case you have not yet Pledged Your Allegiance. Think BLUE!
Aligning yourself with us, might just save you a whole lot of heartbreak.
Long before silver was being used in your smartphones, television sets and ipads – silver was money, just like gold.
Countries over the world have implemented various types of silver monetary standards, at various stages throughout their history. In fact, the US was still using 90% silver coins up until 1964 and 40% silver in their coins until 1970.
Today silver seems to be used for everything but money. Electronics. Solar Cells. Jewellery. Antibacterial clothing and medical equipment. Water purifiers.
However, there is a devoted group of conservatives, called Silver Stackers. Us Stackers believe that one day the world will return to ‘Good Money’ and that silver will have a large roll to play in this. Because unlike paper currency –
You can’t print silver!
And it is relatively scarce – just as money is meant to be.
Today us stackers have cause for celebration. The spot price of silver has finally broken $US20 – the first time since 2016.
Of course, if you are wanting to buy physical silver, expect to pay a lot more than $US20. However, it is certainly nice to see the futures price catching up to reality.
As a part of your Financial Awakening – I suggest you learn all you can about silver.
Here at Goldsmith Money we pride ourselves on identifying trends early. One of the more recent trends identified is the rise of what some social media pundits are calling the ‘Conservative Counter-Culture’.
This conservative movement is no longer satisfied with ‘populist’ victories at the ballot boxes. These advocates of small and fiscally responsible government, individual rights and freedoms – now demand that their voices be heard!
However, mainstream social media platforms weren’t having a bar of this. These multi-billion dollar platforms were more than happy to censor any political thought stemming from anywhere outside of Karl Marx’sDas Kapital.
Even Nobel Prize winner Milton Friedman’s work on free market economics is considered far-right and radical in the current political climate. And he would have likely been stripped of his social media accounts for so called… ‘Hate Speech’.
The final straw for many a conservative thinker however was Twitter flagging a second post of President Donald Trump, on 24 June 2020. They labelled a Tweet with a strong message for protestors, as a ‘violation of their policies.’
Well fed up with the unjust conservative censorship and the tyrannical restrictions on free speech, nearly 1 million conservatives created accounts on the conservative social media platform Parler, in the week that followed – with many in Trump’s team leading the way.
So what is Parler?
Parler claims to be an unbiased social media platform whose content is moderated only based on FCC and US Supreme Court case outcomes. This gives Conservatives reassurance that they will not have their speech arbitrarily censored, based on the daily whims and personal prejudices of the platform’s executive management.
It is not an open slather though – according to FCC and Supreme Court case law, there can be –
No Unsolicited Advertisements.
No Fighting Words or Threats to Harm.
No Indecency (no sexual organs – picture, cartoon or otherwise).
No Obscenity (sexual in nature).
I imagine that there would be very few conservatives who would actually be turned off by these restrictions though. In fact, if they are anything like me – they would find these policies reassuring.
More important to all this however – how does Parler feel?
It actually feels… FANTASTIC!
The platform is fast and the aesthetics are great, particularly on mobile devices and in ‘night mode’.
The interface is easy to navigate, though give it an hour or two to really learn your way around. Searching for hashtags and people is also easy.
It is early days for me – meaning I do not have many followers yet. This being said, I do have 25 extremely wonderful followers who I do value greatly.
It doesn’t take long before you start to get the addictive taste for all the upvotes, follows and echos (similar to retweets) in the your notification page though… so be careful.
The posting (Parlay) of external website pages is a real plus for Parler. They really do look terrific embedded in the feed.
Another Parley advantage over say Twitter, is that you have a full 1,000 characters per post, verse Twitter’s 280. So you can post a quick thought; or a long one – the choice is yours.
I can see many, many conservatives flocking to Parler over the months and years to come – so Goldsmith Money is happy to build a social media home here. We naturally hope to see you here too. Here is a quicklink to our account page, please be sure to follow.
And finally, as this blog post is going straight to Parler – please be sure to hit that upvote button and echo. If you believe that this post adds value to you and the platform, that is.
In my opinion, the conservative movement to Parler, is a huge strike against established social media platforms; and, the financial implications will be sizable! Do you agree? Please be sure to comment below – or in Parler.
