“It’s official! Russian Central Bank announces that the Ruble is tied to gold! 5000 Rubles per gram.
The Central Bank of Russia has officially announced that the Russian Ruble will be tied to gold as of March 28, 2022. The rate is 5,000 Rubles per gram of gold.
There are 28 grams in each ounce. 28 grams for 5,000 rubles per gram is 140,000 Rubles per ounce.
Are you following me this far?
The conversion rate of Rubles into US Dollars is 100 Rubles for each US Dollar.
If Rubles are tied to gold at 5000 Rubles per gram, and there are 28 grams per ounce, this means that an ounce of gold would cost 140,000 Rubles, then the conversion into US Dollars means that gold costs 1,400 Dollars per ounce instead of 1,928 Dollars per ounce using Dollars.
Russia just wiped out about 30 percent (30%) of the US Dollar worldwide when it comes to gold ingots.
People all over the world are literally throwing their money on the Ruble and throwing away Dollars and Euros to do it.
What Russia just did is the financial equivalent of detonating a nuclear bomb.
FYI, the last guy on this planet to try to support a currency with gold was Muammar Quadaffi of Libya.
NATO entered Libya, bombed it to death, and killed Quadaffi.
As of now, 10:39 PM EDT, I suspect bankers around the world are on the phone between themselves and the heads of state, instructing them that what Russia has done will totally destroy both the US Dollar and the Euro, and those bankers of will order the heads of state that World War 3 must start immediately.
Let me explain why.
Last week, Russia said it would sell only OIL and GAS in… Ruble!
This means that Russian oil and gas are anchored in gold with Rubles like a gold proxy.
EFFECT: Europe (which needs Russian gas and oil) will now have to buy Rubles from Putin using gold, or pay for oil and gas with gold itself.
Currently, the FOREX rate for Ruble to Dollar is around 100:1.
BUT… with 5,000 Rubles now equivalent to a gram of gold, and oil being priced directly into gold, we will see a MASSIVE price disturbance in the FOREX markets, in terms of how much gold a Dollar can still buy.
Foreign countries holding the Dollar debt notes as a reserve will see an immediate and much less use for them and want to start unloading them in favor of something more stable; something that holds its value.
Basically, any currency anchored in gold will fit into the account. which means countries like that – like Japan – will start unloading their Dollar debt as soon as possible – are not going to go down with the ship! They’ll move to more stable values like… The Ruble.
This will have a DE-flationistic effect on the Ruble, making it more precious with time.
The immediate result is that all those foreign countries dumping their Dollar reserves will make all those excess Dollars start going home, triggering a worse hyper-inflation than we already have.”
