New method extracts gold from liquid waste
The next gold rush might take place in our sewers.
New research from the Journal of the American Chemical Society has uncovered one of the most effective methods to date to extract gold from liquids. That includes electronic waste, sewage, ocean water, waste water—almost any liquid where we might find gold. Just to highlight how potentially useful this is, sewage from Switzerland alone is estimated to carry away 1.8 million dollars' worth of gold every year.
My question is… if the store of value property of gold is diminished then what do we use as the de facto store of value? (maybe Bitcoin?)
