Nominee: Gold Ventures

Twitter: @TheLastDegree

GV is another mysterious “keyboard warrior” who prefers their anonymity online. According to, GV is not a professional trader and their Twitter account identifies them as “retired”. They are intense about their Due Diligence and make data-driven decisions on when to hold and when to sell precious metals. GV’s work made them a high percentage of returns when following the last silver surge in 2011. They stayed out of trading in the silver market until April of 2019 to “trade the biggest Silver bull market of all time”. Gold Ventures shares their knowledge and data frequently on their Twitter account and website. And we all hope GV is right again!
