One of the largest online dealers announced that he will begin to accept bitcoin.
APMEX said on December 8 that it would begin to accept the cryptocurrency by integrating with the BitPay payment processor. It is also offering a small discount on purchases made with bitcoin to interest the new feature.
The company said in a statement:
“For more than 15 years, APMEX has been an industry leader and in the way it adapts to the growing needs of our customer base. As it becomes more common and widely accepted as a payment, we are delighted to welcome Pre-use the encryption for buying gold, silver and other precious metal by integrating BitPay into our website. ”
Deep metal dealers transferred to the cryptocurrency in recent years, including a decision in September by Sharps Pixley based on U.K. to start bitcoin.
Indeed, the “bitcoin as digital gold” argument attracted a few quarters of that industry, as well as those on the mining side. On the other hand, some of them are in the gold investment space, including the significant investor John Hathaway, spoken out against the cryptocurrency market.
“It’s a full bubble – there’s no question that it’s a bubble,” said Hathaway in September.
