Which e-sports manga are we talking about though? The option only won due to "stuck in a game" crap as Swords Arts and all the rape-tastic web-toon with "Rpg-elements".

My bank is about 300 km way from where i live and my foreign account (the one that gives interest) is stationed god knows where. Digital money is thus technically my preferred choice, as i wouldn´t be able to transfer anything else on my accounts.

The classic strategy is to invest 1/3 in gold, 1/3 into (paper) money and 1/3 into goods, as land. That´s how you survive any recession, short of a war.

I also read Bande dessinée / US comics and am a librarian.

Well, I chose coinage because the idea of a chest full of gold coins sitting somewhere in my vault seems aesthetically appealing.

But in reality, this is another unfortunate poll that doesn't present the options clearly or correctly. The form of money that is most commonly used in this day and age is electronic, but is not cryptocurrency like bitcoins. The last option would have been the most appropriate, but it seems that the poll's author meant something else by it, and thus we are left with choices without a choice.

While Digital Currency is still my personal favourite, it still not at a position where you can call it highly convenient. So, Paper money wins it.

[off-subject] And Coinage (gold, silver, other metals) has the most 'riches' vibe, it's the oldest kind of material currency, where other forms of it other than metal exists (e.g. Stone, wood). And give and take system is even older.

While I really do enjoy digital money, throwing my bank card at stripper just doesn't have the same feeling you know?

Money is supposed to have value. Paper "Money" is not really money at all. It is a promissory note from the federal reserve that states that the paper has worth.

When money has value you run into a problem of whatever commodity you tie it to gets tied up as money. Using a renewable resource (and as little as possible) for this seems like the best solution to me. That way you can actually use gold, silver and copper in the applications they are useful for instead of storing them somewhere.

It also allows increasing the size of the economy as much as you want. If you tie it to gold you have to increase the value of gold as people are born or have massive mining for "printing" more money. The classical issues before moving away from the gold standard was running out of money to expand the economy since there was no more gold...

Currently there is an estimated 171,300 tonnes of gold. There is around 7 billion people, which would translate to 24 gram per person... ZUNVds/_3.jpg
So then you run into coins with little gold in them (or whatever you pick out), which goes back to no value money.

We note a promise onto a piece of paper. The promise itself that has a high value because it was under a great authority/ies witness and permission. The question is, a promise to/of whatconfused

171,300 tons of estimated gold that left. Then what about silver?
