How the internet changed everything

soldout - How the internet changed everythingI reported recently about the incredible 56-minute sell-out of the American Platinum Proof Eagle $100 Coin.

Quite simply, that could not have happened 10 years ago, but the internet has hugely accelerated sell-outs. The Platinum Eagle sell-out was one of a number of examples we have seen this year alone where the coins have been sold in a flash.

Where once we were dealing in days, weeks and months for a coin to sell out, it’s now common for it to be measured in hours or even minutes because of the internet’s massive reach.

The fast sell-outs are not the only consequence of the internet’s power though. Essentially, you have a three-fold spiralling effect:

  1. Instant mass promotion leads to very fast sell-outs
  2. Internet enables the instant dissemination of that sell out, which increases the hype around the coin
  3. Internet enables instant re-sell meaning that prices benefit from the hype and in turn add fuel to the fire

The result is a much faster and more difficult market than it used to be. Never do you need the expertise of Coin Portfolio Management more.
