Guy ‘Destroys’ $40k Gold Bar in Hydraulic Press for Views

Posted on Posted in Articles, Latest Posts, Videos

The internet is freaking out about this YouTuber wasting $40,000 after crushing this bar of gold into oblivion.


This dude goes for the shock value by smashing a $40,000 gold bar with a hydraulic press. I don’t think I have seen anything more expensive ever get crushed before.

I have no words for how stupid some people out there are, there are too many people commenting on the video complaining about this YouTuber throwing away $40,000. It’s like they believe that the gold only has worth if it’s in a certain shape. Just for anyone still unsure about why it’s still worth the same amount, the worth of a gold bar is determined by its weight. No matter if it’s a bar or a ball 1000 grams of gold is still worth $40,000. After this guy pulverized it he most likely sent it back and got his money back minus the re-smelting costs.
