None.

We’re already in the green from our last purchase, in less than 24 hours.

You know boomer, we have 44,106 oz of gold in our reserves.

Worth $79 million, down 0.37% from a year ago.

If we had actually offered it a year back and bought #Bitcoin, it would now be valued at $204 million. https://t.co/e5z9cVsfjg
