In this video, I discuss the ideal properties of a monetary good, and why Bitcoin is superior to precious metals like gold and silver as money.

1) Gold and silver are more prone to centralization and capture, because it is much more difficult to move them around, store them, assay/verify them, etc.

2) Because gold and silver also have industrial uses, commodity demand for them can distort their signal as pure money.

Of course, gold has a 10,000 year history, while Bitcoin does not. So did the horse, before it was supplanted by a better technology (the car).
