Buying Gold and Silver with Ethereum and Stablecoins
At Bitgild.com, we’re proud to offer innovative and secure ways to invest in precious metals. Besides the popular option of buying gold and silver with Bitcoin through BTCPay, we also provide the ability to purchase these valuable assets using Ethereum and various stablecoins.
Stablecoins offer a unique advantage in the cryptocurrency space by being pegged to traditional fiat currencies. At Bitgild.com, we accept various stablecoins, allowing you to buy gold and silver with the stability and trust associated with these digital assets.
After you have selected your stablecoin of choice for purchasing gold or silver on Bitgild.com, you will be presented with a digital invoice containing a QR code. This QR code represents the unique address to which you’ll send your payment.
You have 2 payments options:
- Scan the QR Code: If you have a mobile wallet that supports QR code scanning, simply scan the code with your device. This will automatically populate the payment address, making the transaction process quick and effortless.
- Copy the Address: Alternatively, you may choose to manually copy the address provided in the digital invoice. This address can be used as the withdrawal destination if you’re sending funds from an exchange or another wallet. Simply paste the copied address into the appropriate field in your chosen platform to initiate the transaction.
Buying gold with monero and other privacy coins
Due to the anonymous nature of privacy coins such as Monero, Zcash and Verge we currently cannot accept payments for bullion from those privacy coins. Ongoing pressure from lawmakers made us decide to not accept privacy coins for gold orders anymore.
However, there are still licensed exchanges where you can swap your Monero for other cryptocurrencies. A good exchange we recommend is Kraken.
⚠️ Be careful to swap your privacy coins through non-licensed services such as Morphtoken. Blockchain monitoring services are able to spot that type of behavior and can raise questions on your transaction. We advise using regulated services such as Kraken instead.
Buy gold through decentralized payment methods
Put simply, decentralized payment methods are payment methods where there is no 3rd party involved. Although bitcoin is decentralized by nature, most bitcoin payment methods are not. Industry leaders such as BitPay and CoinGate are bitcoin payment methods that are not decentralized. They accept payments on behalf of the merchant, and covert the bitcoins to their preferred currency. Those companies take away a lot of risk for the merchants, such as volatility and security risk.
As a customer, it’s perfectly fine to use payment providers such as BitPay, as they have proved to be reliable companies throughout the years.
Though, there are also some downsides. Since there is a 3rd party in between, there are also extra costs involved. Most merchants that sell physical gold will charge customers an extra fee on top of their orders for processing bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
On the contrary, there are decentralized bitcoin payment methods like BTCPay and Omotix (our own selfhosted crypto gateway). Decentralized payment methods give merchants the possibility to directly receive cryptocurrencies from their customers without a 3rd party. The big advantage for customers is that there are no 3rd party costs, which will mean you will pay less payment fees.

What are the fees if you buy gold with crypto at bitgild.com?

Bitcoin: 0.6% (through BTCPay)

Why do I have to pay fees for bitcoin if you are using BTCPay?
Although there are no 3rd parties involved, we still have to convert our bitcoins on an exchange to pay our suppliers. Since bitcoin can be quite volatile and sometimes slow in confirmation times, we have to put a little spread on the price to make sure we can cover losses due to volatility and exchange rate costs.
Why do I have to pay fees for stable coins?
Stable coins still need to be converted to real-world currencies on exchanges in order to pay for our suppliers. There are also additional costs to transact the coins on the ethereum network, which are variable depending on the load of the network.
Why are the fees for some cryptocurrencies through coinpayments so high?
Some cryptocurrencies have a very thin market depth, which means that the prices for 1 dogecoin vs 20.000 dogecoins can vary a lot. To cover our risk, we have to increase the fees for those coins.
💡Covert your rarer cryptocurrency to one of the major ones like bitcoin or ethereum or a stablecoin of choice on an exchange. That way you are in control of the fees, and you will save significantly on the conversion.
