DigitalTangible launches first physical silver marketplace on the bitcoin blockchain

Gold bitcoin specialist DigitalTangible has entered the silver marketplace by offering fine silver bullion and coins on its catalogue at the lowest premiums available anywhere online.

Customers purchase directly through DigitalTangible’s platform that connects its global network of precious metal dealers that accept payment in cash or bitcoin.
 
All purchased silver may be delivered directly or stored in DigitalTangible’s vault-depository network and linked to the bitcoin blockchain as a tradeable digital token.
 
DigitalTangible allows its customers fast, transparent, and secure control of their valuable hard assets, anywhere in the world while lowering investment and portfolio management costs via its patent-pending Proof of Custody. Investors can now convert all their precious metal investments into digital money for global transmission and redemption anywhere bitcoin is accepted.
 
Founder and CEO Taariq Lewis says: “Our clients are keen to participate in silver investing in 2014. This stems from three reasons. First, the integrity of the paper silver market is currently unclear: the real amount of physical silver backing the paper is under dispute. Second, DigitalTangible customers currently trade in and out of gold and bitcoin, and silver’s higher inter-day volatility provides more opportunities to make easy trading wins. Lastly, our investors seeing the recent bitcoin really want to enter bitcoin trading through precious metals. Offering silver provides an additional avenue at a lower price point, making bitcoin investing even more accessible.”
 
Together with professional and knowledgeable precious metals dealers Amagi Metals and Agora Commodities, DigitalTangible customers can choose from a wide selection of fine silver bullion and coins. DigitalTangible’s peer-to-peer trading platform allows customers to maintain or exit their silver position with transparency and speed unmatched in traditional precious metals markets or exchange traded funds.
 
Joseph Castillo, CEO of Agora Commodities, says: "Agora Commodities feels that for the bullion stacker, it's about more than just having one precious metal in your portfolio. The avid stacker likes to look at all the precious metals, adjusting their holdings to reflect current market outlooks as well having that safety net when markets are in turmoil. Digital Tangible offering silver on their platform is huge in that it opens a new avenue for bitcoin holders around the world to seamlessly move in and out of the precious metals/crypto-currencies based on their individual risk tolerances in real time."
