Gold FAQs

Have you thought about investing in gold, but you're not sure where to start? One of the first things you need to consider is how gold markets work. Once you understand the best ways to buy gold at the best prices, you can move on to learning about gold investments.

Gold Investment

When you're ready to make a gold investment, it helps to understand why gold is a popular option. There's only so much gold available in the world. A small amount might get used in dentistry or in electronics, but the vast majority of gold is held as a wealth store — either as bullion or jewelry or now as physical - backed digital assets like OneGold.

Demand For Gold

As new markets across the world begin to grow, the demand for gold also increases.For example, China consumed 1, 089 metric tons of gold in 2017, which has made it the world's largest gold market for five straight years. To put that into perspective, India is the world's second - largest gold market, consuming 650 metric tons of gold in 2017.For the most part, gold buyers in Asia look at their purchase as a form of investment to protect their savings from inflation.

Bitcoin Price Chart

Bitcoin is not based on any physical commodity. Bitcoins come into being through “mining,” or using one’s computing power to solve equations. When your computer does enough work, you are paid in Bitcoin. There is a hard cap on how many Bitcoins will ever be produced—21 million—and that is set to protect Bitcoin from artificial inflation. No one can ever “just print more” to cover debts. It is the public nature of the ledger and the fact that anyone can check the math that keeps Bitcoin aboveboard, not a conventional commodity backing.

OneGold combines the features of privacy and security of a distributed ledger with the benefits of true physical precious metals backing and the convenience of storing your metal online.

Not Enough Mining Output to Meet Gold Investment Demand

At one time, South Africa was the leader in gold mining output.However, the country continues to see declines in production.Although Russia and China have started opening new gold mines, they're not producing enough to make up the difference. While these mining companies aren't producing as much gold as they once did, demand from gold investment and gold jewelry buyers keeps growing.This imbalance in supply and demand is causing gold prices to climb steadily higher.

When the Dollar is Weak, Gold is Strong

When the U.S.dollar hits a slump, gold investment exceeds the gains in all major world currencies. In fact, most gold investors know that when the dollar is weak, gold is usually strong.

When Inflation Hits, Gold Shines

While a falling dollar and inflation aren't the same things, they often go hand in hand. However, unlike the falling dollar, when new money hits the market faster than the ability to make new goods, gold investment still shines.
