Alex Stansczyk is managing director of Physical Gold Fund. With his background, you might expect a certain antipathy towards crypto currencies, however, you'd be wrong. While Alex doesn't see them as a substitute for gold, largely due to the issue of physicality, he believes that they could be a very important contributor to the global economic system. That is if the government will really leave them alone. And that's the questions. While other prohibitions have been less than stellar successes, none of the banned items ever posed and existential threat to the powers that be. The right to issue a currency is the key to their power. Will they ever willing give it up?
