Raptor22 What year Bolivar should I buy?
Zig Raptor22 : Hi…I suggest you wait for sheila to answer you as I know that she has that currency..:)
Raptor22 Thanks Zig
Zig Having written that, please remember that we give No investment advice here….this chat room was established to “discuss” our various speculative investments not to recommend that you buy//invest in anything….Please make your own decisions and not based on anything you read in here as we only give our opinions….My only advice: Never invest more that you can afford to lose in any currency speculation….
Sheila Raptor22 Some of my smaller notes are 2009. The 1M Notes purchased appear to be 2020. Thinking if you stay close to that span, then you should be good to go holding Bolivar.
Sheila Raptor22 not giving you financial advice. all speculation at every step of the way. good thing is you can resell at discount, yet getting most of your funds back. generally speaking, most speculations don’t have capability built into risks being taken.
Raptor22 sheila I read the 2021 digital boliver 10 million is good to get
Raptor22 i uunderstand no financial advise Thanks for your advise/opinion
Sheila Raptor22 I don’t know about digital bolivar. Everything we purchased is hard currency. What a roller coaster ride this has been!!!
butterfly I guess I’m one that needs to have currency/metals/etc in my hands that I can feel. I have a friend who lost a lot of money by using the “digital” method. Never again she said.

Dr Malcolm Roberts Zig: Welcome to Zig’s Place, a chat room for dinar speculators and others….discuss any topic that you wish >>>>>
Dr Malcolm Roberts Hey brother: I am taking up your offer “on any topic is welcome on your site.” I believe I would have been an early bird who got on this IQD bandwagon for I had even been an gent to sell these notes early in the piece – almost tow decades. However, I jumped off the selling craze when I soon realized it not not to an overnight “She’ll be be COMING DOWN the THE MOUNTAIN when she come” thingy bit. Sure those two decased a\ahve come and gone and she’s still up that Mountain from the day I joined this crazy ride.
Honestly – I am not a fry pan to dampen hearts and dreams: I sincerely believe those Iraqi scoundrels are very good at having pulled the wools well over our eyes and even up to our heads to say the least – with having got us part with our heard earned funds to buy toilet paper worth dinars just as we had then rushed to get toilet papers when CoVID hit us over two years ago at super market shelves. Remember?
sheila @Dr Malcolm Roberts welcome here today – only 12.5 years history in these currency speculations
Dr Malcolm Roberts she’s still up that Mountain from the day I joined this crazy ride. Honestly – I am not a fry pan to dampen hearts and dreams: I sincerely believe those Iraqi scoundrels are very good at having pulled the wools well over our eyes and even up to our heads to say the least – with having got us part with our heard earned funds to buy toilet paper worth dinars just as we had then rushed to get toilet papers when CoVID hit us over two years ago at super market shelves. Remember?
Dave Xanax helps………
Dr Malcolm Roberts Hey – since I have come this far – I’ll hang on to my toilet paper worth of IQDs tissue papers with great printed pictures of ancient rulers of Iraq for God knows how long: Just in case before my last straws run out and I fling them all in the nearest rubbish dump and not temp some idiots ride this merry-go-round ride as I have so thus far.
Dave willing to trade TP fer your Dinar……. triple ply!!!
Dr Malcolm Roberts But since those crazy days, I am now into more exciting things in life. I am asking people on ” WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF LIFE”? Many people are still not able to give me goOd adequate answers to keep me satisfied. So, I throw this question back to my fellow DINARIANS reading her now. i WILL LOVE TO HEAR BACK FROM AS MANY AS WILL REPLY ME. I DOUBT IT, THOUGH. Lets find out while we play this alternative MUCH MORE HEALTHIER GAME while we manage to ride on this CRACY RIDE singing MORE OF THAT she’ll BE COMING DOWNTHAT blooming Mountain a BIT louder: Hear???
Dr Malcolm Roberts Thanks Dave: I’ll hang on to them a little longer – but I’ll fling them into some rubbish dump and not add further cause any one riding this crazy roller-coaster ride to no get to POSSIBLY nowhere !!!!!!!
sheila @Dr Malcolm Roberts To learn. To be curious. To do better.
Dave nothing ventured nothing gained
UNEEK @Dr Malcolm Roberts Hello and welcome to Zig’s place – I would like to address your question and offer “my” thoughts – I feel that we all have a purpose here in this human form – I have questioned my purpose for many years and even today I still wonder what I am “supposed” to do till I am unable to do — I will offer you what I have been relying on as an answer until I find a better one – I feel that we are here to accomplish 2 things — to grow in wisdom and to expand our capacity to love – now in my humble opinion that is a pretty tall order –
Dr Malcolm Roberts Of course, I would be delighter if I am proven wrong, though I have waited thus far too long for some to rub the FACES of many of my loved friends and relatives who made me part of the skeptic I have become. LOL !!!!!!!!
Sheila @Dr Malcolm Roberts Skeptic yet still believer.
