Crypto enthusiasts will be happy to learn that they can now possess precious bullion stones with bitcoin cash (BCH) and bitcoin core (BTC). Online bullion marketplace Onegold announced that cryptocurrency proponents can now purchase digital gold and silver bullion merchandise. Onegold is a blockchain-based platform that stores precious metals and allows customers to redeem their digital bullion holdings at any time. This move has initiated bitcoin trading as many millionaires are looking forward to investing in priceless stones.
Apmex, the precious metal e-retailer and alternative asset manager Sprott created the concept. Their recent decision to support BCH and BTC is due to a partnership with Bitpay which already has a prior relationship with Apmex.
“Bitpay and Apmex have worked together for years, making it easy for Apmex to accept cryptocurrency — When they started Onegold, we were ready to help them accept bitcoin and bitcoin cash through Bitpay,” explained the chief commercial officer at Bitpay, Sonny Singh. He continued that, ”Cryptocurrency is an ideal payment method for e-commerce and precious metals where the risk of chargebacks, fraud and identity theft with traditional credit cards is high,” as reported on Bitcoin News. This move has boosted bitcoin trading in the crypto market as it has garnered a lot of attention.
Earlier as well a luxurious watch brand Hublot had unveiled its new watch Big Bang Blockchain. The new model was released to commemorate the 10th anniversary of Bitcoin. The 210-piece limited edition was only targetted for Bitcoin users as it can only be purchased with BTC.
To purchase a Big Bang Blockchain, a customer has to register on a dedicated website. OSL will then confirm the data and send the payment details via email. The new Hublot model will be delivered to its buyers at the beginning of 2019, as published on Cointelegraph. So this holiday season bitcoin trading will definitely be on the rise as the crypto bearers will indulge in purchasing digital merchandise.[The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views and/or the official policy of the website. ]
