BitPay, world leader in business solutions for Bitcoin digital currency, announces a partnership with Euro Pacific Precious Metals.

Based in New York City, Euro Pacific Precious Metals is one of the major international gold and silver dealers - and the world's largest by volume to accept bitcoin to date.

Euro Pacific Precious Metals is a company led by famed investor Peter Schiff, that specializes in making high-quality bullion coins and bars part of its customers' financial portfolio. The company has built a reputation for calling out unsavory practices in the gold dealer industry, and for its honest and competitive pricing across all product categories. Executives at Euro Pac Metals regularly seek out new ways to make transactions easier and cheaper for its customers, which is why BitPay was chosen.

"Bitcoin offers tremendous benefits as a medium of exchange for both our domestic and international customers. A wire transfer of fiat funds can be slow and expensive for the customer, and credit card fees are too high to absorb at the low premiums we offer. Not only does BitPay's service make business sense, but we are excited about giving owners of bitcoin the opportunity to inexpensively and reliably convert any excess holdings into precious metals rather than back to fiat currency," said Michael Finger, Director of Marketing at Euro Pacific Precious Metals.

This partnership marks another major milestone in the acceptance of bitcoin worldwide, as larger and more global companies embrace the digital currency.

"We are very excited to form a partnership with Euro Pacific Precious Metals, especially right on the heels of our collaboration with Toshiba. BitPay is honored to have a role in helping such global and established companies integrate bitcoin into their payment systems," said Tony Gallippi, Executive Chairman of BitPay.

BitPay is attracting merchants who are selling low-priced goods where credit card fees are expensive and high-ticket items such as gold and silver where there's chargebacks are common and costly. The ability for merchants to accept bitcoins makes these transactions irreversible and for the buyer the risk of fraud and identity theft is eliminated.
