The banks clearly do not want your money, so where can it go?
And it should be safe from haircuts and other shenigans the governments and bankers think up nowadays.

I intend to use it like some people do use money at the casino. Limit your potential losses, make a big win, draw the money over and above the initial amount and put it somewhere safe.

Yes. I had a splash at the end of August which dipped a bit at the end of last week (against sterling) but has well recovered. Point is, dad bought some years ago and the gain on that is staggering! When I bought my Trezor he sent me 1 bitcoin.
