What I like about BitGold: Roy Sebag
When you watch interviews with him and/or read articles he has written you quickly begin to realize just how passionate he is about gold and BitGold. That kind of passion is rare and places him in the company of Steve Jobs and Elon Musk. Yet unlike Jobs and Musk he does not have or need a "reality distortion field." He isn't trying to sell us the "the next big thing", or something for "the rest of us", or require millions of dollars in government funding to pursue his dream. Instead, Roy is working diligently to give everyone around the world easy access to a 5000 year old store of wealth with a proven history of stability and acceptance.
The concept of BitGold seems obvious and one wonders why it had to wait for Roy and @Josh Crumb to bring it to fruition. Whether it is the perfect combination of the global internet buildout + disillusionment with fiat currency + renewed interest in gold or the genius and passion of Roy and Josh in developing the Aurum technology and their vision for the future, I am grateful that BitGold exists today.
Thank you @Roy Sebag
