In a few weeks for now, the Comdex Synthetics DEX will be in full flow and the first set of commodities that will be available in the Comdex market place will be gold, silver and oil. This article will place emphasis on one of the commodities to expect and that will be silver.
Evolution of Silver
We are going to be taking a deep dive into one of the most valuable precious metals in the history of humanity so we can see how it became one of the most sought after commodities.
Silver is a chemical element, that is soft, lustrous and white in looks, and it's normally found in the crust of the earth just like gold and other metals. Silver is one of the few metals that were discovered by pre-historic humans and was formerly used as one of the early forms of money replacing the barter system. The history of silver dates back to 3000BC in Turkey and Greece. Silver was always known to be an alloy of gold and some other metals and most silver is produced as byproducts of gold, copper, lead, zinc etc.
So since the early discoverers of silver found out that silver was an alloy with other metals they devised various methods to separate silver from these other metals and one of the methods was called cupellation a technique that allowed silver to be extracted directly from its ores, although the earlyEgyptians separated silver by heating the metals with salt.
Silver As An Investment
No discussion of precious metals that occurs anywhere in the earth without silver being mentioned. Gold and silver often go hand in hand and have remained the most coveted of metals for thousands of years and still counting, and just like gold, silver is also highly regarded as an investment option and has often been used for coins, bars and jewellery which just shows off its economic importance. Silver has a multitude of unique technical, industrial and medical uses and is also considered as a store of value which makes it a viable commodity to own and invest in.
Silver is a metal that has increased in value over the years just like gold, however, the price of silver is still very low, considering its many uses, this represents a huge opportunity for investors who want to start investments in commodities. Many investors use the ‘gold-silver ratio’ to compare how the prices of these two commodities are performing and this analysis has shown that the price of silver has never gotten past one tenth of the value of gold which is a perfect opportunity for long term investors considering that it is far more accessible and cheaper than gold.
