MAJOR GOLD DEALER ADAPTS TO BITCOIN'S POPULARITY

BITCOIN PAYMENT POSSIBLE THROUGH BITPAY INTEGRATION

APMEX, one of the largest gold dealers is about to start accepting Bitcoin, according to the firm’s announcement that was published a few days ago. The company makes Bitcoin payment possible by integrating payment processor BitPay with their website. To make this milestone in the industry even more thrilling for customers of precious metals, APMEX offers a small discount on purchases made with Bitcoin.

The company said about this revolutionary step:

"For more than 15 years, APMEX has been an industry leader and along the way has adapted to the growing needs of our customer base. As bitcoin becomes more popular and widely accepted as payment, we are thrilled to welcome the use of this cryptocurrency for buying gold, silver and other precious metals by integrating BitPay into our website."

Precious metal dealers have showed more and more interest and started to adopt the cryptocurrency in the past few years. Some businessmen in the gold investment business, like John Hathaway, speak out against the cryptocurrency market, but there is an increase in attention, interest and support towards Bitcoin that has been frequently mentioned as ”the digital gold”.
