OneGramCoin (OGC): All disucssions of the digital token backed by gold take place here!
OneGram uses blockchain technology to create a more resillient and stable cryptocurrency where each coin is backed by one gram of gold at launch. Each OneGram transaction generates a small fee. Unlike other cryptocurrencies, in OneGram, this fee is reinvested (net of admin costs) to buy more gold and increase the amount of gold that backs each token. 3,000,000 OGC already invested!

Question: Is Bitcoin backed by Gold, Silver, Platinum... etc?
If not, it's no better than the toilet paper we call money. And therefore is probably being used to build a "bubble". Saying it's backed up by currency is also invalid if ANY of the currency it represents is Fiat Currency. So I want to know.

Bitcoin is digital gold and the LightningNetwork uses cryptographically secured and trustless “IOU’s” as a medium of exchange backed by bitcoin, for efficiency. Like when paper money was backed by gold in 1844. But this time no one can suddenly take the gold away.
Edit: Yikes, this blew up a little and I’m being hit from all angles about why I’m wrong. I probably shouldn’t have used the term “IOU” cause it insinuates debt, as well as there being counter party risk. My point is that it’s like having the most trusted and secure IOU in the world, because it’s not backed by promise of the other person, it’s backed by cryptography, so you can claim your money at any time, or you can continue to pass it on to the next person without any risk. So in that sense, it is similar to an IOU, but it’s trustless. I really liked this analogy and I was hoping this would just be an easy way for people to understand but I was wrong. Edit 2: I think a better word would have been “promise”. LN is like exchanging trustless and secure promises of funds, which carry no risk, unlike when paper money was a promise to the equivalent value in gold and the promise was broken. I hope that clears up my thinking a little.

Bitcoin is backed by more than gold and fiat combined.
Gold is "backed" by nothing other than scarcity (supply) and utility (demand). Fiat is backed entirely by the level of confidence in that countries treasury, central bank and government to be fiscally responsible. Because a lack of fiscal responsibility kills scarcity and therefore also utility. Bitcoin is backed by stricter scarcity than gold, greater utility than both gold and fiat, and the fact we dont have to trust in anyone.
