Silver for Bitcoin Payment Invoices & Bitcoin Wallet Compatibility

The price of bitcoin is always moving and fluctuating (see bitcoin's current value here).

To prevent bitcoin price swings from hurting bitcoin accepting merchants or users, BitPay requires transactions currently to be sent within 15 minutes of invoice issuance. The majority of bitcoin exchanges cannot send payments that quickly. Late silver for bitcoin payments will be cancelled and need to be refunded. This will cost everyone time and potentially capital. Thus BitPay now requires all silver for bitcoin payments to be made with a payment protocol compatible software or hardware wallet.

The different wallets you can use to make your payment through BitPay can be verified right here, on their website.

As of writing this, these are the most popular crypto currency wallets to buy silver coins and silver bars via SD Bullion and BitPay respectively, according to their website:

You can currently use any of the popular bitcoin payment protocol-compatible wallets above to pay a BitPay invoice in order to buy silver bullion with BTC, or other digital coin at SD Bullion.

If you don't have one of these bitcoin wallets yet, simply create one from the list above (be sure to use the current release version). Then send some bitcoin or other crypto currency to it, likely at least the amount you intend to use in your silver for your purchase at SD Bullion.

Physical Silver Bullion will Outlast Bitcoin

Perhaps this is but one reason why so many BTC holders are selling bitcoin for silver bullion now. Gold and silver have been around for millennia and, so far, experts believe they tend to continue outperforming any form of fiat currency system created.

Of course there are also other reasons for this physical silver for BTC buying trend. Silver, along with gold and other precious metals, are considered to be a safe haven asset for investment, especially during times of economic downturns.

These two asset classes are independent of one another. Many investors choose to buy and hold portions of their wealth in silver bullion, bitcoin, other physical precious metals, and cryptocurrencies and likely for many of the very same reasons .
