Bill Murphy ofGATA.orgreturns to the show with fresh insights on the PMs sector.
Palladium is key precious metal in the auto manufacturing sector used primarily for emissions reduction in gas engines.
China and other BRICS nations are stockpiling the metal amid a global shortage.
The price of Palladium recently reached parity with gold.
Palladium's sister metal, Platinum is $400 less expensive and is an excellent substitute metal for palladium.
The price differential may present an appealing arbitrage opportunity.
Silver also has a highly inelastic demand curve with not just one key application but thousands of industrial uses.
If BRICS manufacturers turn their focus towards silver, an epic short-squeeze scenario could erupt.
Silver, arguably the "King of industrial metals" could ascend to parity with competing precious metals, 10-100 fold higher.
Once investor's passion for paper assets evaporates a tidal wave of capital could flow into the relatively tiny PMs sector.
Given that sources seem to indicate that most new money managers were inactive during the 2000 shares bust, the impact of a 3 sigma event could send reverberations around the global financial arena.
Factom BlockchainCEO, Paul Snow makes his show debut with an overview of his unique distributed-ledger blockchain.
Factom was built from the "ground-up," designed to restore transparency to distributed ledgers via a dual token system.
FCT security tokens are separate from the daily operations tokens that resemble forever stamps.
The Proof of Work (PoW) is similar to Ethereum Gas, versus Proof of Stake (PoS) such as BitShares.
Factom brings blockchain immutability to the ledger system facilitating previously impossible services.
Factom improves the real estate sector, restoring faith in transactions, such as loan origination, and closing.
Another key Factom use case includes the Internet of Things (IoT) in homes and office networks.
Analysts project growth in connectivity with mobile phones, laptops, desktops, TVs, kitchen and household appliances.
Most IoT connected devices currently deploy few if any security features, representing a weak point of easy access.
IoT networks are vulnerable to attack, creating a threat to the entire network.
Factom is already working with the Department of Homeland Security to shield key camera and surveillance devices.
Factom thwarts spoofing by highly sophisticated hackers.
As such threats become more prevalent Factom will be positioned with first-mover advantage in the IoT eco-space.
For added security and peace of mind, the Factom Protocol embeds data directly into the Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchains through theMerkle treealgorithm for merely $0.001 per ten minute hashing cycle, $1.00 per week, $52 annually.
