    Some just breaking news. Those following this will be aware there were Designated Business registration issues with the Isle of Man authorities. Kinesis has been working with the authorities in the Cayman Islands and i have just heard all the hurdles are cleared and Kinesis is 'ready to rumble.'
     

    Further to our previous email regarding the incorporation of Kinesis Cayman,
    we, Kinesis Ltd, hereby give notice that the Simple Agreement for Future Tokens between yourself and Kinesis Ltd is as of 20th June 2018, assigned to Kinesis Cayman an affiliate of Kinesis Ltd. 

    Please be assured that in implementing our new corporate structure and assignment of the Simple Agreement, no action is required by pre-sale KVT applicants. The agreement remains the same, aside from the new Cayman Islands domicile of Kinesis.
     
    Pre-Sale applicants will continue to have their purchase governed by the terms of the Simple Agreement for Future Tokens where we have made minor updates that relate to the new company domicile.
     
    Further to this and to provide increased protection to KVT applicants, Kinesis is pleased to announce the establishment of the Kinesis Foundation, an exempted foundation company incorporated with limited liability in the Cayman Islands, that will receive the funds from the KVT token sale and hold those proceeds for the benefit of the Kinesis community.

    Setting up the Foundation ensures the funds generated from our token sale are channeled directly into development of the Kinesis ecosystem.
     
    Kinesis Cayman will be replacing the Kinesis Isle of Man entity for the purpose of the ITO, with the proceeds of the token sale being moved from Kinesis Cayman to the Kinesis Foundation upon completion of the ITO.

    Most people who try to lose weight end on putting it back on and more besides. Weight gain or loss is more than just diet, it is your whole life style. That is why it is so hard to get the weight off and keep it off. There was a programme on ITV this week, i listened to a bit, it was going on in the background. Diabetics on an 800 calorie diet for a month. A stunt for the cameras to make a programme.
    Aim to confine your eating to a window of time - say 6 hours - nothing before or after. If you are fasting for 18 hours a day it will force your body to switch into ketosis and burn fat. You are not eatin less you are shifting your eating time.
    Cut out as many carbohydrates as you can. Especially cut out processed food. Processed food is generally full of fructose-glucose syrups. They are cheap, they add taste and they are poison. Fructose is half of table sugar. We become addicted to carbohydrates releasing sugars into the body. We get a sugar rush, our metabolism then has to quickly get it out of the blood or we would be diabetic and it is turned into fat. Then we crave another sugar rush and so it goes on. Fructose causes fatty liver.
    Eat in a window - intermittent fasting - get rid of processed food - cut carbs down - no bread, no potatoes, nothing made with wheat flour, no pasta ----> no sugar rush.
    Eat more saturated fat - lard, dripping, butter. Ger rid of all the vegetable oils - they are poison. The polyunsaturates oxidise very easily, it is the last thing you should be cooking with. A lot of the processed (vegetable) fatty foods still have trans fats in and they cause cancer.
    People were told to stop eating saturated fat. They had to eat more carbohydrate to make up the calories. They switched to margarine and vegetable oils. This was for health. The result is obesity has gone up, diabetes has gone up, heart disease went up, cancer went up. People are sicker. The advice is wrong. It is killing people.
    If you follow this advice and you steer clear of faddy diets you will be able to lose some weight, get rid of the metabolic syndrome which you almost certainly will have, get rid of the fatty liver which you almost certainly have and you will be able to stack silver. Win win win.

    i got a notification today from GoldGuard who are involved in the OneGram gold backed digital currency. i joined their website last year when they kicked off, initially i thought about investing.
    They were announcing 'The first Shari'ah compliant digital asset backed by physical gold [OneGram] has gone live with its first transaction carried out successfully, today.-
    The blockchain will be open to OGC holders soon. Starting June 20th to July 30th, you will be able to claim your OGC from the GoldGuard Platform. Full instructions on how to claim your OGC will be sent to your emails before these dates. Meanwhile the process of listing OGC on different public exchanges is going to be announced in the coming days.

    Yes the registration is a legislative hurdle. There is an alternative to Isle of Man. i am not sure if this is in the open right now. The preferred location is IoM but the other option is very crypto friendly and in the EU, so an ace card up the sleeve if needed.
    Kinesis is working with miners. There are wholesalers and traders, the likes of Andrew Maguire with years of buying/seller tonnage in metals. They are running the Allocated Bullion Exchange sourcing metal - it is their basic business to get hold of metal. There is likely to be an issue if you put in offers to buy very large tonnage - it will get declined. There is a 'scheme' i heard via Andrew Maguire to buy metal which goes under the radar of any boycott/block the LBMA might wish to apply. i don't think that is public but it is ingenious.
    Yes if unallocated account holders decided to switch to Kinesis this could set up a shock wave to take down the system. This is something i have mentioned on the forum several times. In most cases the gold doesn't exist - it probably never existed. So an unallocated holder who requests gold won't get it, they will be paid out in cash. They will then come into the Kinesis system and there will be gold and silver bought, vaulted and taken out of the system. GLD holders might cash in and go to Kinesis - and so on and so on. There is so much gold on the books that does not exist. When this becomes apparent, when unallocated and allegedly allocated are refused delivery the game is up and the house of cards collapses.

    Here we are:
     
    Just cobblers - i can accept copper prices falling, i can accept oil prices falling but not gold. If there were a trade war i would expect gold to rise.

    PRECIOUS-Gold shines as trade war fears rattle markets.
    https://www.reuters.com/article/global-precious/precious-gold-shines-as-trade-war-fears-rattle-markets-idUSL3N1R51T9
    So in March a trade war is bullish for gold (correct) and in June it caused a sell off - (err i don't think so)
    'A more hawkish Federal Reserve' - this is all La La Land - the economy is shot - there is a panic when the 10 year Treasury goes over 3%, the Fed says all is well, there is full employment but labour participate tells another story and it is mucking about with 1/4% increases for fear of collapsing this super strong economy.
    Silver, which the thread is about, has been consolidating since the July 2017 when it put in a low at around $15.13. i think the low in July 2017 was the middle of the night flash crash in silver. Price has been consolidating for since the beginning of 2017. We have had higher lowers and lower highs for sure since July 2017. We were up at the top of the consolidation wedge - if we had got through and stayed above, its off to the races. This is the beginning and end of the price smack down today. They have to paint the charts and keep price inside the wedge. Price has banged up at the top of the wedge several times over the last year and then the usual suspects dump paper on the market and the controlled media invents a reason rather than saying the obvious - the market is rigged. They are attempting to maintain the illusion the USD and all the other fiat currencies aren't progressing to zero where they belong. It is going to get harder and harder to keep price from escaping through the top of the wedge.

    sixgun got a reaction from Oldun in Renting out a home?   
    From my experience of renting it is a long haul. Profits have primarily been on the property appreciation with the rent covering insurances, letting fees if any, capital costs, vacant periods etc etc. There are quite a few etceteras by the time you are done.
    i see the GBP took a hit verses the USD. Lowest point this year. There will be pressure on the BoE to lift rates. The housing market is toppy. Prices are set at the margins. That is there is 5 houses selling this month out of 1000 but the value of the 995 not on sale is set by the 5 that are. A property tumble is quite possible and we could see double digit percentage falls. i have lived through a few. When something has looked like a one-way bet it is often likely the tide will start flowing in the other direction.
    If i were to be asked if i would be wading into the property market right now i would say i am waiting.

    i am not massively keen on either but i do have both.

    You will see from the link that the 2005 sovereign has a bullion mintage of 45.5K and 2012 it says 750k. The 2012 has a bit of a messy design which i find hard to make out without a longer look. The 2005 is a cleaner design which i prefer. So on the basis of design and mintage i would opt for 2005. If you have a year with nothing going for it then 2005 would be my choice for sure and probably 2012 if it is in good condition. i have not even looked at the prices on these coins, it is just how i feel on the basis of looks and numbers.
    Just had a look on ebay - the 2005 coin is certainly selling for more money, which fits in with my thoughts. i think you would be fortunate to get the 2005 for a basic price so if you can then grab it. i think you would struggle to get either. Both sovereigns are coins a sovereign collector will want in their collection and passing collectors will take just b/c they are different but the 2012 with a mintage of 750k is never going to be a real premium coin.
