    2013 SS Gairsoppa ... I have the 2014 as well. I was lucky, both coins are perfect. No spotting, as of yet.

    The Proof set was opened, as most are you buy. So the coins are not frosted.
    The Mint set P & D are not opened. I will leave that way for now. It would look like this inside => https://i.imgur.com/cLHidlQ.jpg

    My lofty goal would be to sell half my stack when the price doubles from where i bought (average) so that the other half is basically "free" and i do use quotes on that hahaha... would be cool to have a bunch of silver that cost me basically nothing

    JimmyStack reacted to sixgun in Kinesis Gold and Silver currency   
    @swAgger my intention has been to build up a holding of KVT's. At the point the pre-ICO coins are available i may buy some. The yield on these will be greater but as i intend to mint like a demon i am not that swayed by the higher yield. If a pre-ICO coin yields twice a post-ICO, then two cycles of post-ICO minting and you are even.
    If this works the KVT's will be money trees. This is where the risk is and this is why the blueprint promises the perpetual yield. If Kinesis doesn't do much your KAU/KAG's are blockchain title over metal and you are good but KVT's are poorly performing tokens and potentially a complete wipe out. You will have to work hard minting and indefinitely so to keep up with the yield on KVT's which require no work. i have been adding KVT's every month - i did so this month (which is why i have denied myself some of the silver bars for sale on the forum which i would have loved to have got).
    i am in the Kinesis Ambassadors group. i didn't realise i was until the last week. It is a  small group of people who have shown an interest and made some useful comments. It is a Kinesis think tank outside of the company. We don't get anything out of it but the discussions are interesting. My advice to you would be to hold off getting more KVT's right now. Kinesis needs to secure registration as a Designated Business. It is a registration with the Isle of Man authorities where the business plan and the people running it are vetted. It is to see if the people running it are fit and proper and that Kinesis is not counterfeiting/laundering money. They are hopeful but i note they have been negotiating with the IoM authorities for several months. Digital Gold Limited, which is running BullionCoin in which the ABX were negotiating a joint venture, has Designated Business status and got in the middle of 2017. The business model of BullionCoin is very similar so as long as the board of Kinesis have not been convicted of certain offences one would assume there will be no issues but i note negotiations have been going on for several months. They have alternatives to the IoM and will go to another jurisdiction if the application is rejected and do not anticipate any delays in launch even if this does happen.  This registration is fundamental to the business. Quite a few in the Ambassadors group are not going to buy more KVT's until this is sorted. i am the same. i intend to lump all KVT's into a single corporate entity which will not be subject to taxation. The number of KVT's is sufficient to generate sufficient yield to mint decent quantities of coins - quite quickly at the KWG and KWS level. So i am not that fussed about getting the pre-ico coins. Once i get going i would hope to be cycling through the minting process at least once a week and more if i can fit them in.

    JimmyStack reacted to Paul in Working for Nothing - Modern Day Slavery Act 2015 - Asda   
    Howdy, I have just had to leave the peaceful confines of home and venture into the real world
    As with everything in life, there is no shortage of things to pee you off in a very short space of time
    I find out last night, it is a very good neighbor of mine has his birthday today, so nip in the car and shoot to my little local Asda. x5 bottles of different craft ciders and a card - job done, what could possibly go wrong ?
    I go inside, there are now x8 of those self-serve checkouts, I loathe and just one manned counter in front of the cigs. 
    So I go to the only staff nearest to these machines, and ask "Can I pay for these please"
    "You have to use the checkouts", I reply "I am at the checkout now, could you please do it"
    NOPE - muggins here has got to.  So, not only am I putting coin in Asda pocket I now having to undertake unpaid work for the privilege. 
    Well, stuff that, that is Asda on the blacklist to avoid now. 
    Well, I'm now back home decided to pen them an email of complaint to get my cash I'm due  (see below)  I will let you know how I get on and see if I get my wages for today !
    Please feel free to copy and use it yourself if it works
     
    "Hi Asda
    Just to make you aware of the minimum wage at work, sadly as you may like to have in an ideal world "I do not work for nothing"
    I was told today by a surly member of your staff I HAVE to now scan my own shopping,
    I have to undertake unpaid work. I refer you to "The Modern Day Slavery Act 2015"
    http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2015/30/contents/enacted
    namely
    "Slavery, servitude and forced or labour
    (1)A person commits an offence if—
    (a)the person holds another person in slavery or servitude and the circumstances are such that the person knows or ought to know that the other person is held in slavery or servitude, or
    (b)the person requires another person to perform forced or compulsory labour and the circumstances are such that the person knows or ought to know that the other person is being required to perform forced or compulsory labour.
    (2)In subsection (1) the references to holding a person in slavery or servitude or requiring a person to perform forced or compulsory labour are to be construed in accordance with Article 4 of the Human Rights Convention.
    (3)In determining whether a person is being held in slavery or servitude or required to perform forced or compulsory labour, regard may be had to all the circumstances.
    (4)For example, regard may be had—
    (a)to any of the person’s personal circumstances (such as the person being a child, the person’s family relationships, and any mental or physical illness) which may make the person more vulnerable than other persons;
    (b)to any work or services provided by the person, including work or services provided in circumstances which constitute exploitation within section 3(3) to (6).
    (5)The consent of a person (whether an adult or a child) to any of the acts alleged to constitute holding the person in slavery or servitude, or requiring the person to perform forced or compulsory labour, does not preclude a determination that the person is being held in slavery or servitude, or required to perform forced or compulsory labour."
    So, It took me a total of 4 minutes to scan my few items, ironically it would have been sooner had the errors the machine made, a staff member still had to put right!
    So although I will take a wage cut in this instance, ( as I can see Asda dont like paying top dollar! )  to show fairness I am due to be compensated 4/60th of £7.83 for my forced labour today in your store, additionally, I would seek another 6/60th of £7.83 for the 6 minutes it has taken to find my sources and pen this complaint.
    So 10/60th of an hour in total worked or 1/6th of an hour worked
    1/6 of £7.83 = £1.305
    £1.30 will be totally fine
    I will forgo the .005p I am still due as I can see times are hard at WalMart HQ with your CEO C. Douglas McMillon only taking a salary of only $22,179,961 last year, those 0.005p sure do add up
    Please send payment to the address above, for my work today, please send payment only as a cheque, not as Asda gift card/voucher as this the last time I will be using your store again.
    Paul 
    PS thanks also for rubbing our noses in it some more, on your receipt " Save Money, Live Better " lol I can you are very right !

    I don't watch TV spend my time reading or catching up with BYB on YouTube, or documentaries and the like. For the odd thing I really want to watch  live (Wimbledon) I go around to a relatives to watch and catch up with them. I do agree with the above comments and apart from some dramas and documentaries for which we produce the best in the world IMHO, I don't miss it. The good things are usually available on YouTube shortly afterwards anyway.  Have just renewed my 'no licence fee needed'. Why I should even have to  advise them every few years is beyond my understanding  - oh, I know they want me to pay for a licence  but don't have a TV. They seem to think we are all morons glued to the box day and night.
    Had a Virgin Media salesman at my door last week as they put in new fibre optics last year. Had to repeatedly tell him I don't have a TV before he comprehended and in astonishment asked what I did for entertainment. Not sure he understood the meaning of reading books, but then he was looked like he was born this century.

    Seems a bad way to run a project.
    Tell all the members to come over to the silver forum and get their hands on the 1oz, 100g and 250g hand poured hallmarked silver bars I make. I have clear and transparent deadlines and have never missed a single one when it comes to production and delivery of these pieces. 
    Also, I bank roll these projects and collect payment when I am certain a deadline can be hit - in my opinion the only way to do it.
    Good luck getting the rest of these rounds!
