The Stable Value

A stable value

In yesterday’s article on bitcoins, the stability of the digital currency was called into question. Though the fledgling currency is slowly gaining in acceptance among retailers, its future value is by no means certain. Anyone wishing to invest in a bitcoin today cannot accurately predict its value tomorrow. While the future value of the bitcoin is precarious at best, there is one investment that will continue holding its value over time.

Without a stable platform on which to base its value, bitcoins might not be as viable a long-term future investment as a USPS Forever stamp. The value of a Forever stamp will always be equal to the cost of a First-Class postage stamp. Stamps do not lose their value, and whenever the price of a postage stamp increases, the value of a Forever stamp equals that new price. The value of a bitcoin purchased today, on the other hand, may not equal its value tomorrow. It is for that very reason, the extreme uncertainty in the value of a digital currency, that makes a USPS Forever stamp a more attractive alternative for long-term investors.

The next time someone asks about a stable investment opportunity, suggest Forever stamps from the U.S. Postal Service. It’s one of the smartest values available from one of the most trusted organizations in United States.
