Now here’s a real opportunity for this specific mine to start its own Crypto-currency…..since it will REALLY be backed by gold.

(….how many crypto tokens current exist of late, with in increasing number claiming to be “backed by gold”(to instill trust) by an imaginary mine or mining consortium? Like it’s the latest fad in crypto coins.)

How do they know they will get 6m ton a year?
