    Why is gold valuable?

    I can't understand. Of what value is it really? It's rare, and shiny sooo.....mankind decides to base it's currency off of it? I genuinely don't understand how it came to represent what it does today. I mean, what purpose does it serve besides jewelry. When did someone say, "I have this good or service to offer, and in return I would like a piece of that shiny rare metal from the ground,"?

    I'm genuinely perplexed by precious metals and how they became the base of currency. I could see oil, as it has a practical application, but what are you going to do with gold?

    Because women love it and you get blowjobs, anal, and 3somes when you have a lot of it. For mellinia, simple men have been elevated to kings with harems because of it. Why do you think that the crip with the biggest chain around his neck is pimping all the hoes and controlling all the blow on his block? No need to try and understand it knig. It just is the way it is.

    I know it is found on green boards and does have some practical applications, but I just genuinely don't understand why or how it came to be what it is.

    Primitive motherfuckers had to decide on something for currency. Guess the majority of them liked gold?

    Why is gold valuable?

    It's highly ductile and malleable, doesn't rust, looks great as a cawk ring

    Sumerian lore...When the Gods arrived in sumeria long ago, their objective was to mine gold. The theory is they needed it for conductive or atmospheric purposes. If the theory seems far fetched, look at NASA and how they need and implement Gold into almost all of their missions. Based on how valuable it seemed to our "gods", we adopted it as valuable to us, as well.

    Plus it looks good and attracts the hoes.

    gold is undervalued deliberately to keep some currencies in the world stronger,some analysts say it should
    be 3-5k an ounce and could reach this in a few years.

    Monetary systems were based on precise metals because there wasn't much of it and it was very hard to fake. As stated above, gold doesn't oxidize with the air which means an ounce of gold will stay an ounce of gold. It was easy to break about making it ideal for trading and weighing.

    Gold is a good system for trade.
