Any one out there buy bullion with Bitcoin from the major dealers?

Looking for some help with this transaction method. Went to make my first silver purchase using bitcoin from Apmex and at the checkout screen it said "payment must be made from a 'payment protocol' compatible wallet" with a link to compatible wallets which were(Bitpay, Copay, Mycelium, Electrum, and Bitcoin Core).
I keep my bitcoin stored on my KeepKey hardware wallet, which was not on the list of approved wallets. Does this mean that I need to transfer my Bitcoin to one of there software wallets in order to complete this transaction?
I got the same message when I switched over to JMBullion to try and place an order.
Also, tried to make an order through SilverGoldBull since they take Litecoin, but that process timed out when I clicked to complete the order and doesn't seem to have gone through.
Thanks for any help you all can provide, and if you have a recommendation of which wallet to use that would be great!

Places to buy bullion with bitcoin?

Hey everyone. I am looking to start purchasing some bullion with bitcoin. So far the options seem to be amagi metals, agora commodities, coinabul, and bitgilt (if I don't mind waiting for overseas shipping and feel lucky about customs).
Has anyone dealt with any of these companies? I see lots of negatives posted about coinabul. I also see complaints about Amagi shipping VERY slowly. I can't find out much of anything about Agora, or overseas shipping with bitgilt.
So, does anyone have any others that they use and know to be reliable?

"Buying silver jewelry with bitcoin is not quite as robust of a market as buying silver bullion with Bitcoin. High mark-ups have likely made Bitcoin-holders, who often have a good understanding of basic economics, wary of using bitcoin to buy silver jewelry."

Global crypto payment provider BitPay has announced the OneGold precious metals and digital gold marketplace is now accepting Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash, according to a press release.
OneGold — founded by APMEX, a leading precious metals retailer, and Sprott, an alternative asset manager — is focused on giving investors the ability to combine the “key benefits of physical gold and silver with those of blockchain-based digital assets.”
OneGold CEO Ken Lewis indicated that adding Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash to the payment roster boosts “transparency and efficiency.”
He projected that the added options would lead to a positive response from “a large number of cryptocurrency buyers from international markets, where accepting credit cards is not always practical.”

Fostering Transparency And Payment Security

In the press release, BitPay Chief Commercial Officer Sonny Singh said that cryptocurrency is “an ideal payment method for e-commerce and precious metals” due to risks of fraud and identity theft related to the use of credit cards. Chargebacks, he noted, cost merchants nearly $19 billion last year.
Cryptocurrency is touted by some as a solution to these types of issues since each transaction is recorded and stored on the blockchain with a lack of sensitive information.
In March 2016, JM Bullion said customers could use Bitcoin to purchase gold and silver through BitPay. The bullion company indicated at the time they would give a four percent discount to those who used the cryptocurrency for payment.
OneGold maintains the ability to take fiat or cryptocurrency, or...

[WTT] / [WTS] Looking for carded gold bars, selling/trading gold coins, platinum bar

Prices are firm. My goal is to limit the amount of time I spend on each deal. I am trying to price the items attractively and don't want to negotiate. However, I am willing to combine or eliminate shipping costs if you are buying more than one lot. FOR BITCOIN SALES I WILL KNOCK 1% OFF PRICE

Verification: https://imgur.com/a/3elksCk
- Looking to trade 1 oz Krugerrands/Philharmonics (2)/1988 Panda (1) straight up for 1 oz gold bars in assay cards. Also willing to trade Buffaloes for 1 oz gold bars (carded) + $30 (or 1 oz silver)
I would consider uncarded bars but would value them at $20 less.
SOLD SOLD SOLD I've had some questions about the 1988 Panda. Strictly speaking, I would not call it BU. I'm just looking to trade it for a gold bar. It's bullion. Here are pics with the top of the capsule removed:
https://imgur.com/a/pXxUFnT
Also getting a lot of questions about years available for Krugs and Bufs, so here you go:
Krug: 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1983, 1984
Buf: 2006, 2008, 2011, 2013, 2015, 2016

If it gets lost in the mail, that's on me and you will get a full refund or the same product resent. If tracking says it was "delivered" or "out for delivery" (sometimes they miss that final scan), that's on you.
Payment options in order of preference: BTC (-1%), Zelle, Venmo, PPGS+3% (requires solid feedback history).
Preference will be given to larger orders. I'll probably be asleep soon so it's possible you won't hear back from me until tomorrow. Thanks for looking and please let me know if I am doing anything wrong or inadvisable.

Buy Bitcoin not Gold- Mike Novogratz

Michael Novogratz is a veteran Wall Street fund manager and cryptocurrency maven who readily acknowledges when he earns a “black eye,” while Dave Portnoy is the brash founder of a media empire who only recently began touting stocks and has disparaged Warren Buffett.
Their backgrounds and personalities may be vastly different, but both are now offering the same investment recommendation: Bitcoin is a better long-term bet than gold.
In an appearance on Bloomberg Television, Novogratz — founder of Galaxy Digital Holdings Ltd. — said that although he sees gold climbing above its record highs, Bitcoin is still the more worthy investment because it’s “harder to buy” than the traditional haven. He said about 25% of his net worth is tied up in the cryptocurrency.
“It’s only got a $20 billion market cap, while gold is over $10 trillion,” Novogratz said of Bitcoin. “So it’s got a long way to go to catch gold in terms of just adoption.” Still, he doesn’t recommend beginners put in more than 1-2% of their money into the digital currency.
Novogratz said Bitcoin had “crossed the Rubicon” on the question of whether it’s a good store of value. Now, more institutions and banks are considering how to get into the cryptocurrency, compared with a few years earlier when they viewed it more skeptically, he said.
Barstool Sports founder Portnoy, meanwhile, was sold on the cryptocurrency after being pitched by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss. In a video posted on Portnoy’s Twitter feed, the twin brothers — who founded crypto exchange Gemini Trust — say Bitcoin has the potential to replace gold as a store of value. Their reasoning? They claim that Elon Musk has plans to mine gold from asteroids.

In a tweet after his interview with the Winklevoss twins, Portnoy suggested he has bought $1 million worth of Bitcoin.
Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency, has been on a roller coaster in 2020. After sliding below $4,000, it’s zoomed up and is around $11,800. It’s seen further acceptance in the mainstream investment community, experienced a “halving” where the rate of Bitcoin created dropped by 50% as of May, and seen correlations with gold rise to records.
In the case of bullion, prices have been on a tear this year as central banks worldwide took steps to shore up ailing economies in the wake of the coronavirus crisis and investors sought a haven from the turmoil. The precious metal is up 28% this year to about $1,945, with Credit Suisse Group raising its bullion forecast for next year to $2,500 due to a “perfect storm” of factors.

You. Are. Fucked. (and here is why)

Alright boys and girls. You are ALL fucked. You may not realize it yet, but you are guaranteed FUCKED.
So, the reason that you are fucked is that you are subsisting either on a wage, or you are subsisting on a fixed income. Both of these are not dynamic in relation to the number of dollars in existence or even GDP. If you want to read more on THAT particular issue, here is an excellent link: https://www.epi.org/productivity-pay-gap/
Anyways, the fed is buying out the junk bond market. That probably sounds like arcane gibberish, and many of you probably don't even know what a bond is. A bond is like a loan, except you agree to repay the full value of the bond (the principal) plus a fixed amount (the interest) at some later date. For example, you borrow $100, but you agree to repay me $110 in one year. So, what makes a bond a junk bond? Well, companies that might default that issue bonds are considered to be issuing junk bonds. For example Hertz defaulted on its bonds. It went into bankruptcy. The US government gave money away to hertz bond holders to buy their bonds to prop up the company value to try to not let it default... and it defaulted anyway.
But this isn't just about a stupid car rental company. This is happening across the entire market. Notice the stock market going up? All that nice slushy corporate money is being used to buy back stocks. Why? Well, when a company goes bankrupt, they have all kinds of legal moves that they can do, including defaulting on bonds. It is free money. Now, it might not make an impact on your life when the stock market rallies by 10% in 3 months... But it will make an impact when the price of food goes up 10% in 3 months. That is 40% inflation.
But wait it get's worse. The stock markets valuation is grossly overinflated, even going into the pandemic. They had absolutely horrendous p/e ratios and if it had a fair valuation, the prices of stocks would be 1000x lower. What happens when all that nice green cash gets dumped on main street? You. Are. Fucked.
You really only have 1 option. You need to buy stuff, or acquire stuff that is inflation resistant. That means whatever you put your value in needs to be scarce. It should not be something that can have its supply manipulated.
Now certain people here are very much against cryptocurrency. That's fine. Year on year it's gone up and it's gone down, but for the most part since inception it has trended up. However, you need to ask yourself if you trust your dollar. Do you trust it to hold its value? Even when you know the fed has injected literally trillions of dollars into the economy, and that they owe their creditors even more trillions? When you see the police acting like the police of a third world country? When canada declares the US as unsafe for asylum seekers? When the people who make our country competitive (young prodigies looking to go to college) are being turned away at the door? When every single nation is tarrifing us, and is also pointing at us out for having a less skilled response to covid than third world countries like cuba? No.
The US dollar is NOT a safe store of value, and neither is real estate in the US. You need to get your hands on the following items:Gold. Silver. Cryptocurrency. Foreign currency that won't collapse with the dollar. Foreign Real estate. Foreign stocks of companies that do not service us customers.
If you can't buy these items right now because you don't have money, think about low interest loans like mortgages. If you can service the interest cost of a loan, the depreciation of the dollar value is going to cause your goods to appreciate in value. You could buy enough gold today to afford a car with. However, in 3-4 years, that gold will be worth 10x the cost that you paid for it... and you will still be only able to buy a car with it. (ok the car market might crash, but you get the idea)
Basically, if you take out loans now, and put the money from those loans into a diversified portfolio of goods and commodities that will not lose value when the US dollar loses value, you will do very well.
On the topic of cryptos. Bitcoin, ethereum, ampleforth, knc are all good choices. Do your own research though. Stay safe, there are many scammers, and there are many pump and dump groups. Cryptos are legit, but they are the wild west.
On the topic of precious metals. Buy gold and silver coins, not bullion. It is illegal to adulterate coins, or to clip them. This way, you know what you are getting. 1 silver dollar is always 1 silver dollar. The silver is what matters.
Right now, it is better to buy silver than gold, mostly cause silver is so low in price. It will pick up though.

The White Dragon : A Canadian Dragon Portfolio

Alright guys, Ive been working on this for a while and a post on here by a guy describing his portfolio here was the final kick in the ass for me to put this together. I started writing this to summarize what Im doing for my friends who are beginners, and also for me to make some sense of it for myself
Hopefully parts of it are useful to you, and also ideally you guys can point out errors or have a suggestion or two. I'm posting this here as opposed to investing or canadianinvestor (blech) because they're just gonna tell me to buy an index fund.
This first section is a preamble describing the Canadian tax situation and why Im doing things the way that I am. Feel free to skip it if you dont care about that. Also, there might be mistake regarding what the laws are here so dont take my word for it and verify it for yourself please.
So here in Canada we have two types of registered accounts (theres actually more but whatver). There is the TFSA "Tax Free Savings Account", and RRSP "Registered Retirement Savings Account"
For the sake of simplicity, from the time you turn 18 you are allowed to deposit 5k (it changes year to year based on inflation etc)in each of them. That "room" accumulates retroactively, so if you haventdone anything and are starting today and you are 30 you have around 60k you can put in each of them. The prevailing wisdom is that you should max out the TFSA first and you'll see why in a minute.

TFSA is post tax deposits, with no capital gains or other taxes applied to selling your securities, dividends or anything else. You can withdraw your gains at any time, and the amount that you withdraw is added to the "room" you have for the next year. So lets say I maxed out my TFSA contributions and I take out 20k today, on January of next year I can put back in 20k plus the 5 or whatever they allow for that year. You can see how powerful this is. Theres a few limitations on what is eligable to be held in the TFSA such as bitcoin/bitcoin ETFs, overseas stocks that arent listed on NYSE, TSX, london and a few others. You can Buy to Open and Sell to Close call and put options as well as write Covered Calls.

The RRSP is pre-tax deposits and is a tax deferred scheme. You deposit to lower your income tax burden (and hopefully drop below a bracket) but once you retire you will be taxed on anything you pull out. Withdrawing early has huge penalties and isnt recommended. You are however allowed to borrow against it for a down payment as a first time home buyer. The strategy with these is that a youngperson entering the workforce is likely to be in a fairly low tax bracket and (hopefully) earns more money as they get older and more skilled so the RRSP has more value the greater your pre-taxincome is. You can also do this Self Directed. Its not relevant to this strategy but I included it for the sake of context.
Non registered accounts ( or any other situation, such as selling commercial real estate etc) is subject to a capital gains tax. In so far as I understand it, you add all your gains and losses up at the end of the year. If its a positive number, you cut that number IN HALF and add it to your regular pre-tax income. So if I made 60k from the dayjob and 20k on my margin account that adds up to 70k that I get taxed on. if its a loss, you carry that forward into the next year. Theres no distinction between long term and short term. Also physical PMs are treated differently and I'll fill that part in later once I have the details down.
The reason why all that babble is important is that my broker Questrade, which isnt as good as IB (the only real other option up here as far as Im aware) has one amazing feature that no other broker has: "Margin Power"
If you have a TFSA and a Margin account with them, you can link them together and have your securities in the TFSA collateralise your Margin account. Essentially, when it comes to the Maintenance Excess of the Margin Account QT doesnt care if its in the TFSA *or* the Margin!
You can see how powerful this is.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So as you can tell by the title, a lot of this is heavily inspired by Chris Cole's paper "The Allegory of the Hawk and the Serpent". You can read it here: https://www.artemiscm.com/welcome#research
Between it, his interviews and my mediocre options skills at the time my mind was blown. Unfortunately I didnt know how to do the Long Volatility part until after the crash in March but I've since then had nothing but time to scour the internet and learn as much as I could.
The way I interpret this isnt necessarily "what you should have right now", but what abstracted model they were able to backtest that gave them the best performance over the 90 years. Also, a lot of my portfolio I already had before I started trying to build this.
As such my allocations dont match the proportions he gave. Not saying my allocations are better, just showing where they are at this time.
I'm going to describe how I do Long Volatility at the end rather than the beginning since the way *I* do it wont make sense until you see the rest of the portflio.

Physical PMs 22%
I'm not sure wether he intended this to be straight up physical gold or include miners and royalty streaming companies so I will just keep this as physical.
I consider Silver to be a non-expiring call option on gold, so that can live here too. I am actually *very* overweight silver and my strategy is to convert a large portion of it to gold (mostly my bars) to gold as the ratio tightens up.
If youre into crypto, you can arguably say that has a place in this section.
If an ETF makes sense for part of your portfolio, I suggest the Sprott ones such as PHYS. Sprott is an honest business and they actually have the metal they say they have. If you have enough, you can redeem your shares from the Royal Canadian Mint. The only downside is that they dont have an options chain, so you cant sell covered calls etc. Simple enough I suppose.
One thing to bear in mind, there is a double edged sword with this class of assets. They're out of the system, theyre nobody's business but your own and theres no counter party. That unfortunately means that you cant lever against it for margin or sell covered calls etc. You can still buy puts though (more on that later)

Commodity Trend (CTA) 10%
https://youtu.be/tac8sWPZW0w
Patrick Ceresna gave a good presentation on what this strategy is. Until I watched this video I just thought it meant "buy commodities". A real CTA does this with futures also so aside from the way he showed, there are two other ETFs that are worth looking at.
COM - This is an explicit trend following ETF that follows a LONG/FLAT strategy instead of LONG/SHORT on a pile of commodity futures. So if they get a "sell" signal for oil or soybeans they sell what they have and go to cash.
COMT- Holds an assortment of different month futures in different commodities, as well as a *lot* of various related shares in producers. Its almost a one stop shop commodities portfolio. Pays a respectable dividend in December
If you want to break the "rules" of CTA, and include equities theres a few others that are also worth looking at
KOL- This is a coal ETF. The problems with it are that a lot of the holdings dont have much to do with coal. One of them is a tractor company. A lot of the companies are Chinese so theres a bit of a red flag.
Obviously Thermal Coal, the kind used for heating and powerplants isnt in vogue and wont be moving forward...but coking coal is used for steel manufacturing and that ain't going anywhere. The dividend is huge, pays out in December. A very very small position might be worth the risk.
Uranium- I'm in URA because thats the only way for me to get exposure to Kazatoprom (#1 producer), which is 20% of the holdings. The other 20% is Cameco (#2 producer)and then its random stuff.
Other than that I have shares in Denison which seems like its a good business with some interesting projects underway. I'm still studying the uranium space so I dont really have much to say about it of any value.
RSX- Russia large caps. If you dont want to pick between the myriad of undervalued, high dividend paying commodity companies that Russia has then just grab this. It only pays in December but it has a liquid options chain so you can do Covered Calls in the meantime if you want.
NTR- Nutrien, canadian company that was formed when two others merged. They are now the worlds largest potash producer. Pretty good dividend. They have some financial difficulties and the stocks been in a downtrend forever. I feel its a good candidate to watch or sell some puts on.
I'm trying to come up with a way to play agriculture since this new phase we're going to be entering is likely to cause huge food shortages.

EURN and NAT- I got in fairly early on the Tanker hype before it was even hype as a way to short oil but I got greedy and lost a lot of my gains. I pared down my position and I'm staying for the dividend.
If you get an oil sell signal, this might be a way to play that still.

Fixed Income/Bonds 10%

Now, I am not a bond expert but unless youre doing some wacky spreads with futures or whatever... I dont see much reason to buy government debt any more. If you are, youre basically betting that they take rates negative. Raoul Pal of Real Vision is pretty firm in his conviction that this will happen. I know better than to argue with him but I dont see risk/reward as being of much value.
HOWEVER, I found two interesting ETFs that seem to bring something to this portfolio
IVOL- This is run by Nancy Davis, and is comprised of TIPS bonds which are nominally inflation protected (doubt its real inflation but whatever) overlayed with some OTC options that are designed to pay off big if the Fed loses control of the long end of the yield curve, which is what might happen during a real inflation situation. Pays out a decent yield monthly
TAIL- This is a simpler portfolio of 10yr treasuries with ladder of puts on the SPX. Pays quarterly.

Equities 58% (shared with options/volatility below)
This is where it gets interesting, obviously most of this is in mining shares but before I get to those I found some interesting stuff that I'm intending to build up as I pare down my miners when the time comes to start doing that.
VIRT- I cant remember where I saw this, but people were talking about this as a volatility play. Its not perfect, but look at the chart compared to SPY. Its a HFT/market making operation, the wackier things get the more pennies they can scalp. A 4% dividend isnt shabby either.
FUND- This is an interesting closed end fund run by Whitney George, one of the principals at Sprott. He took it with him when he joined the company. Ive read his reports and interviews and I really like his approach to value and investing. He's kind of like if Warren Buffett was a gold bug. Theres 120 holdings in there, mostly small caps and very diverse...chicken factories, ball bearings all kinds of boring ass shit that nobody knows exists. Whats crucial is that most of it "needs to exist". Between him, his family and other people at Sprott they control 40% or so of the shares, so they definitely have skin in the game. Generous dividend.
ZIG- This is a "deep value" strategy fund, run by Tobias Carlisle. He has a fairly simple valuation formula called the Acquirer's Multiple that when he backtested it, is supposed to perform very well. He did an interview with Chris Cole on real Vision where he discusses how Value and Deep Value havent done well recently, but over the last 100 years have proven to be very viable strategies. If we feel that theres a new cycle brewing, then this strategy may work again moving forward.

I want to pause and point out something here, Chris Cole, Nassim Taleb and the guys at Mutiny Fund spend a lot of effort explaining that building a portfolio is a lot like putting together a good basketall team. They need to work together, and pick up each others slack
A lot of the ETFs I'm listing here are in many ways portfolios in and of themselves and are *actively managed*. I specifically chose them because they follow a methodology that I respect but I can't do myself because I dont have the skill, temperament or access to.
The next one is a hidden gem and ties into this. I'm not sure how much more upside there is in this one but man was I surprised.
SII- Sprott Inc. I *never* see people listing this stock in their PMs portfolios. A newsletter I'm subscribed to described this stock as the safest way to play junior miners. Their industry presence, intellectual capital and connections means that they get *the best* private placement deals in the best opportunities. I cant compete with a staff like theirs and I'm not going to try. I bought this at 2.50, and I liked the dividend. Since then they did a reverse split to get on the NYSE and like the day after the stock soared.
When it comes to mining ETFS I like GOAU and SILJ the best. None of their major holdings are dead weight companies that are only there because of market cap. I dont want Barrick in my portfolio etc.
SGDJ is a neat version of GDXJ.
Aside from that my individual miners/royalty companies are (no particular order)
MMX
SAND
PAAS
PGM
AUM
AG
MUX
RIO- Rio2 on the tsx, not rio tinto
KTN
KL
Options/Volatility: varies
So this is where we get to the part about options, Volatility and how I do it. I started out in the options space with The Wheel strategy and the Tastytrade approach of selling premium. The spreads and puts I sell, are on shares listed above, in fact some of those I dont hold anymore.
Theres tons of stuff on this in thetagang and options so I wont go into a whole bunch (and you shouldnt be learning the mechanics from me anyway) but theres one thing I want to go over before it gets wild.
If I sell a Cash Secured Put, from a risk management perspective its identical to just buying 100 shares of the underlying security. You are equally "Short Vol" as well, it just that with options
its a little more explicit with the Greeks and everything. But if I use my margin that I was talking about earlier, then I can still collect the premium and the interest doesnt kick in unless Im actually assigned the shares.
But if I sell too many puts on KL or AG, and something happens where the miners get cut down (and lets be real, they all move together) my margin goes down and then I get assigned and kaboom...my account gets blown up
So what I need to do, is balance out the huge Short Vol situation in my portfolio, be net Long Vol and directly hedge my positions. Since the overwhelming majority of my equities are all tied to bullion this is actually a very easy thing to do.

So I set this up so the vast majority of my margin is tied up in these 1-2 or even 1-3 ratio put spreads that *I actually put on for a small credit*, and roll them every once in a while. I run them on SLV, and GDX.
I keep enough room on my margin so I can withstand a 10% drawdown before it sets off the long end of the spreads and then I can ride it out until it turns around and we keep the PM bull market going.
Theres another cool spread I've been using, which is a modified Jade Lizard; if already hold shares, I'll sell a put, sell a covered call, and use some of the premium to buy a longer dated call. Ive been running this on AG mostly.
I have a few more spreads I can show you but Im tired now so it'll have to wait for later.
As I said multiple times, I do intend to trim these miners later but now isnt the time for that IMO. I'm also monitoring this almost full time since I have an injury and have nothing better to do until I heal :p
