Amagi Metals Becomes The World’s #1 Bitcoin Retailer

Amagi Metals is back - under new ownership and Bitcoin payments have returned

(I tried posting under old Amagi account, but it appears to have been shadow banned - I understand why. Please read below to learn about Amagi's new ownership and re-opening)
Hello silverbugs -
I want to introduce the new Amagi Metals brand that is being released under the ownership of Anthem Vault - a precious metals storage company and financial tech leader with a great reputation.
We understand that customer service, awesome deals, and reputation is highly regarded in this community. We don't expect you to flock quickly to the new Amagi Metals, as we understand that previous ownership has left some users with bad experiences fresh in the mind. We will be here though, with an expanded customer service staff, a Bitcoin payment option, and quality bullion at great prices.
We'd like to offer free shipping and a free copper round in every Silverbugs' order from now until Saturday, with more deals to come. Code: REDDIT10 (you'll see the free ship option at the end of checkout)
We are standing by to answer questions on the new ownership. We understand there has been a lot of confusion and we would like to help in any way we can. If you have an order that has not been fulfilled from Amagi Metals - we would like to help you with that as well.
Thanks for your time, Anthem Vault Team

My name is Stephen Macaskill & I am the CEO of the bitcoin-friendly precious metals dealer, Amagi Metals. AMA!

Hello free market enthusiasts, voluntaryists, philosophers, and everyone else that loves liberty!
I started Amagi Metals in 2010, and began accepting bitcoins as payment for precious and base metals in 2012. I am an Alumni Board Member of the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) and a strong advocate of individual liberty; free markets, and free minds.
I think that we are on the cusp of the largest nonviolent human revolution the world has ever seen because of innovative decentralizing technologies.
Amagi Metals has been one of the leaders in the crypto to gold and silver market and currently accepts 5 cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dark Coin, NXT Coin, Ripple). At one point, we were receiving more bitcoin than any other legitimate retail business in the world. We continue to do a large amount of volume in BTC and are one of BitPay's biggest volume retailers. Recently we released news that we will no longer be accepting US Dollars after 2016.
Our goal at Amagi Metals is to promote sound money and financial responsibility...which is a personal goal of mine as well. Ask me anything!

Bitcoin Black Friday is Upon Us. Lets Have a Little Look.

Before it even started there was some drama because some fraudster captain of the industry registered http://bitcoinblackfriday.info and was immediately flagged as a fraud by weak hands. The "real" Bitcoin Black Friday was quick to respond with information about this years even here: https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/3s5cs0/update_on_the_real_bitcoin_black_friday_com/
The most important part of that post is this little nugget:
Goals for this year:
100+ Merchants. (That's smaller this year! We're going to be only accepting quality merchants. After reviewing which sites actually got traffic and sales last year, the 'filler' merchants don't need to be there.)
So lets have a little look at http://bitcoinblackfriday.com/ and see what those quality merchants are.
It starts strong with Humble Bundle listed near the top. Their ties to them is so strong they listed them twice, first the weekly bundle and then the books bundle. Note that it's not a special deal or anything. They just link to the regular weekly bundle. Why not link to the main bundle you ask? Because that one doesn't accept bitcoin...
Need to buy honey and honey related products for bitcoin? http://www.beesbros.com/ has you covered.
Tired of the digital nature of the internet of money. Buy a physical bitcoin from Denarium. Chose between a bulls head or a pigeon. https://denarium.com/?apply_coupon=bitcoinblackfriday#products The nice people over at Hardbtc will also sell you physical versions of the low friction email of money. http://hardbtc.org/ocart/index.php?route=product/product&path=59_62&product_id=68
There are also paper wallets if you want to increase the risk of losing your coins: https://bitcoinpaperwallet.com/?special=BLACK
If you want some more valuable metals, Amagi Metals will set you up. They have apparently started accepting bitcoin again after not doing s for awhile. https://www.amagimetals.com/bitcoin-black-friday#
Here's a personal favourite. http://zimbabwedollars.net/ Yes, you can now buy the most worthless currency on the planet with the second most worthless currency on the planet. All prices are in dollars.
Want to buy some random used junk for local pickup in San Diego only? The Butter Zone is the place for you. No I'm not making this shit up. Behind the worlds dodgiest URL hides this little golden buttery gem: http://fs.tbz1.com/ Need a grey 3-piece suit, a spare tire for a Toyota Corolla 1993 or some RPG Books? Look no further. This is some top quality merchandise.
We all know that bitcoin's killer app is converting stolen credit cards into real money. Here's a new way to help the poor Russian mafia get some money: http://www.cheaperthansteam.com/shop/just-cause-3/
Here's a deal on a 21 Inc PiTato actual Raspberry Pi and accessories: https://pisavvy.com/product-categories/raspberry-pi
The Bitcoin News are selling 10 000 banner clicks for 50 % off! http://thebitcoinnews.com/shop/bannerads/10-000-banner-clicks/
I don't even know what this is and the website doesn't work. http://i.imgur.com/GUNRqe1.png Is it a joke? Is it memes? I have no idea.
Someone saw a hole in the market left by our favourite ex-bitcoin mod and are offering 20 % off of bitcoin soaps. http://www.bitsoaps.com/ They have a litcoin soap as well.
Want to buy contraband cigarettes? Bitcoin have you covered: https://www.dutyfree.io/ How can they sell their cigarettes so cheaply?
It’s because we purchase and send them from poorly developed, Eastern European countries where cigarettes cost a fraction of the price you’re used to pay in the West. There are still huge discrepancies in the standard of living across this world’s countries and as long as this discrepancy persists (as long as you guys keep on borrowing), an arbitrage opportunity will exist and will be exploited. We think Bitcoin helps tremendously in this regard.
They claim it's perfectly legal and that you will not have to pay any duty or tax. They are of course lying through their teeth. Proper captains of the industry.
Want to smoke in style? Get disposable Vapes from Julien Marley. Super classy mon. http://blackoutx.com/collections/juju-royal-by-julian-marley
There are many herb related sellers. This one sells some kind of hemp based pills that has loads of potential health benefits. http://hempsci.com/ It has Sci in the name and mentions loads of chemistry stuff on the site so it must be totally legit. One of the main selling points is that it's legal so it has to be good.
Want to grow stuff indoors, http://growershouse.com/ has all your hydroponic needs. I did not know bitcoiners grew their own spices and vegetables...
Here's a place that sell herbal teas including one that cures diabetes. Or at least has anti-diabetic properties. According to one study. Also, it was done on mice. http://readyherbs.us/index.php/product/diabetes-tea/
Next up is http://www.thaidye.com/ which offers tie dye clothing. Felt like a good segue from the herbs.
More clothes. The Mises store is on the list because of course it is. http://store.mises.org/Mises-Knows-Premium-Fitted-T-shirt-P10977.aspx
And lastly, not alpaca socks but socks non the less. https://www.soxinabox.club/ Subscribe to socks.
There are many more dubious business on the list but I'm way to lazy to talk about them all. Please, go through the rest of them because there's much comedy gold left to mine.

Connections with TV Hosts? Major or minor...much like the Twitter campaign going around, we want to begin reaching out and offering a knowledgeable Bitcoin spokesperson everyday to talk shows.

Stephen Macaskill, the CEO of Amagi Metals, has been speaking around the country on Bitcoin (Foundation for Economics in Education, World's Fair of Money, Liberty Forum, Silver Summit). He's turning his focus away from the currency and toward the technology in hopes to translate its importance as a tool rather than what most people see as an investment, and he has built a great delivery to explain it to noobs.
We want to start spending time every day to reach out to 5-10 talk show hosts about this revolution that is happening with Bitcoin - it's saving lives, ending welfare, warfare, changing international business, etc.
If you have any connections with networks like NBC, ABC, your local news affiliates, maybe even a well-watched YouTube Channel - send us over any connections and we will reach out and offer a spokesperson for cryptocurrencies.
Also, if you are interested in being a spokesperson, having some other individuals to offer to the show hosts would be awesome. Obviously there's Roger Ver, Erik Voorhees and many others, but here's a chance to build this roster of speakers and grow the voice of Bitcoin/cryptocurrencies.
PM us here if you have any suggestions!

[140910] "Apple Pay Day" Bitcoin popularity trend analysis

As I've written previously, I believe that Bitcoin is the dog wagging the tail. Therefor I will focus this post on Bitcoin and see what's happening there.
Seven days ago, there was a spike in number of hits on the Bitcoin wikipedia page (http://stats.grok.se/en/latest90/Bitcoin). Accordingly to Google trends, this happens the same day the Shrem news hits the wires (http://www.miamiherald.com/2014/09/04/4326680/plea-scheduled-for-ny-bitcoin.html). Accordingly to Google trends, Bitcoin is a hot topic in US and Canada. Accordingly to ahrefs Russia is also showing a lot of interest and is linking a lot to bitcoin.org (https://ahrefs.com/site-exploreoverview/subdomains/?target=bitcoin.org), the overall upwards trend is stagnating and almost beginning to turn down though. Reddit confirms this view and there the trend is also turning down (https://pay.reddit.com/Bitcoin/about/traffic). The Bitcoin Sentiment Index is also turning down (http://www.coindesk.com/sentiment-index/) and even hard core enthusiasts such as the guy behind the mike at Bitcoin and Gravy (http://letstalkbitcoin.com/blog/post/bitcoins-and-gravy-ep-32-the-big-apple-amagi-metals) admits to feeling a little bit depressed. The trading price on exchanges confirms this bleak picture and overall trading volume across exchanges are declining (http://data.bitcoinity.org/markets/volume/30d?c=e&t=a&volume_unit=btc).
My personal belief is that what we have had the past few months, is a much anticipated consolidation after the wild ride to above 1000, down to super lows and oscillations around 500. It's pretty obvious that people have been betting on BTCUSD going down and actually the sum of active BTC swaps on bitfinex hit the considerable high point of 10K (http://www.bfxdata.com/combined/btc.php) which tells us that a lot of people are shorting - so that's how we know that people are betting on price going down.
So what is the take away from all of this? I believe that the saying "the market is pricing in a future events" is very true for Bitcoin. Bitcoin, I believe, derives its value from the prospect of the currency becoming viable and wide spread. While this is in many ways becoming true with Paypal/Braintree, Dell to name only 2 out of an "endless amount of spectacular announcements" the past year, I believe much of it was already priced into the market so to speak. A string of almost to good to be true news, have hit a market that has been consolidating and being under great selling pressure. What does this mean? In my view it means that people who bought coin, anticipating that Bitcoin would someday "go mainstream" have been depressed about the collapse in price and all of the good being already priced into the price, has obviously not been enough to prop it up, hence many people think it's either time to take profit or cut the losses short. So then, is this the end?
I definitely think it's not. While Paypal/Braintree and Dell are good reasons to sell bitcoins (in exchange for goods and services) I still think the "killer app" for buying has not yet materialized. While I think more and more wallet apps, will be thrown to the wall until something sticks - I think the killer app is not an app really, but actually a "killer feature" of the protocol itself; namely that it is a system that works outside of the traditional banking system. What I'm waiting for, is some kind of crisis in the banking system where things freezes up and where people, who uses VISA etc, will have trouble moving money while the Bitcoin network just continuous to work. Something like that, banking holiday or similar, that could spike the price of bitcoins. If nothing like it happen, I still believe the price to go up anyway, since there are so many people still out there who hasn't heard about it and don't own any.
Everything isn't down, only the price and peoples sentiment. There is nothing that draws attentions, such as a runaway ascent where price goes parabolic to the moon, and when that happens I believe the number of search hits on wikipedia etc will increase as well. People are trading more and more bitcoins and on localbitcons we hit an all time high in volume (https://bitcoincharts.com/charts/localbtcUSD#igWeeklyzm1g10zm2g25zi1gVolzvzcv) and this happened last week. Besides the BitLicense, everything I've heard is positive. Everything besides the price which is down. And price I believe, is down because of the bad sentiment, because people look at the price and not the spectacular things happening. More ATM's are being added all the time and he number of transactions on the network is actually picking up (https://blockchain.info/charts/n-transactions-excluding-popular?timespan=2year&showDataPoints=false&daysAverageString=30&show_header=true&scale=0&address=) so we know it is being used, for one reason or another. Nothing here that says bitcoins will be worthless soon.
Buy when sentiment is at a low point, sell when people are euphoric. Is this where we're at? People sure aren't euphoric but I wouldn't say that we're at the "puke point" either. The simple answer is that I don't know where the low will be but I'm confident that someday the price will cross 1000 again, so I believe it's all about dollar cost averaging down, keeping some chunk of money on the table if the price goes really super low.

BTC eCommerce, no chargebacks, and Amagi metals; a bad combination

This is a follow up to my previous post on Amagi Metals
TLDR of the previous post: I bought 6.3~ BTC worth of gold/silver from Amagi Metals which didn't ship for 36 business days with inconsistent communication and customer support; a few hours after making a BBB complaint I received an email saying that my order had shipped.
I finally received my package from Amagi Metals, 7 weeks after I ordered it. Here is my invoice from Amagi Metals.
There are a few problems with the shipment:
Amagi Metals switched my order, without contacting me or asking for my permission, to my disadvantage
