Introducing ONEGOLD

Another weapon in the fight against The Banks and a great alternative to GLD and SLV.


Here's another weapon in the fight against The Banks and a great alternative to GLD and SLV. Please take a few minutes to listen to this podcast with Ken Lewis, CEO of APMEX.

We are very pleased to announce an advertising sponsorship for this new product from APMEX called ONEGOLD. With the advent of blockchain and secure digital transactions, you finally have an opportunity to buy and sell physical gold and silver with this same simplicity and security.

And I think ONEGOLD is also a great alternative to trading GLD or SLV. Why? Lower fees, no middleman/broker AND easy access to immediately deliverable gold and silver. As you know, only the Authorized Participants (Bullion Banks) have the privilege of taking delivery from those ETFs.

So many thanks to APMEX for making this product available and thanks to Ken for taking some time to explain it to us. We encourage you to check it out and thoroughly conduct your own due diligence. Of course you can find all the additional information you need through the website:

Thanks for listening,

BTW, how does Gershem's (sp?) Law affect this type of financial mechanism when the game's music is still playing? Just asking....

And SILVER, TOO! This IS a first for me.

Also, big fan of the fact that converting to physical gets you a volume discount regardless of quantity. That’s what convinced me to set up the recurring purchases.

A great success story from my home state of Oklahoma. Love their on-line buy back quotes and their accounting function that makes taxes much easier. The idea of the Royal Canadian Mint working with an Oklahoma corporation speaks volumes about the success of this company. Fitting the company is housed in the former Federal Reserve Bank branch in OKC.

Angry citizen  Around 5 years

Angry citizen Around 5 years back I came up with a phrase

'Gresham's Law meets its Minsky Moment'

Gresham's law is well known as bad money pushing out good money. It's complementary to the Minsky Moment, when a financial asset class suddenly and catastrophically collapses after a period of largely unwarranted financial stability and prosperity riding on Gresham waves of debt-based QE digital bad money. This causes almost everyone to think market risk is much lower than it is.

The moment arrives unexpectedly expected and everything goes tits up

DOW down 900 in 3 days. Mortgage rates now 5.21% Not a good sign.

All I know is they can only double the national debt so many times before this debt based monetary system collapses. 10 trillion wasn't enough after Bush II, 20 trillion didn't do it after Obama, maybe 40 trillion will finally break it after Trump gets done with it.

Nov 15, 2018 - 9:04am



Yes, in G's Law, good money, (gold& silver) go underground, active as a way to save without the effects of fiat inflation, etc. I also agree it will be a Minsky Moment that awakens the masses too far down in the trenches of slavery to see what's coming.

I was wondering above about how successful a venture like the above will be without the MM. What do you think? Something should be in place, to make our transition smoother, but it will also be a target of unwanted attention, too, IMHO.

Angry Citizen  It seems that

Angry Citizen

It seems that at our present level of evolution, we subject ourselves to Gresham law cycles because that cycle starts with good money such and gold and silver, transitions to fake money after good money is debased by greed and inept management of perfectly workable monetary system Lowland gorillas and Bonobos are more evolved than us when is comes to sound monetary systems. You don't see them selling out their family and tribe mates for a percentage.

As the last to be admitted into the system, proles are then allowed to have little bit of the good money, like us stackers, but tons of the garbage. Most usually fail to see the difference given a few years or decades, just as inflation creeps up in stockinged feet and quality food disappears, replaced by deep fried dreck and sugary snacks.

The first people to get the good money mess it up for the rest of us. They expect us to accept the tokens (or forced to accept the FIAT under penalty of death) These tokens are represented as full faith and credit chits to a government or country that is on the way down. Chit is all we get.

Those chits are spent wildly, first by the rich, buying uncountable amounts of faux assets in the hopes that they can dump the paper garbage currency before it goes full retard Minsky.This bids up the price for everyone down stream from the rich. The poor get the last dregs of these overpriced assets, grabbing them in the hopes of getting rich.

At that point in time gold and silver cease their lurker status and are once again seen as real money but only after the Minsky Moment works it way through the economy.

Russia, China, India and even some of the G20 countries are hoovering up gold like it's going out of style. India just dumped $15 billion in USTs for gold and Russia is down 80% plus in their UST holdings, buying scores of tons of gold with the proceeds I think Russia dumped $80 billion in USTs but the exact number escapes me

The USD and UST markets are being Minskied by the OBOR, Yuan based petro sales, Iran oil for gold sales and unfriended by many of the OPECs, tired of being under the boot of the US military

But this is just a guess. There are many other factors in the MM that I have missed thus far

I think its a great fit to team up with them. Thanks for giving us the heads up. I have been a frequent customer of APMEX and wasn't aware of this being rolled out.

Blackwatersailor  That

Blackwatersailor That article does add an element to forecasting how the world economies will fare in 2019. Recalling in 2007 Jim Cramer screaming like a homeless meth head derelict that Diane Shipping was going to the moon and the Baltic Dry Index was following up a wicked wall of worry, I traded nicely on these two before I traded badly. The Cramer Curse hit DBI and Diane like a Cat 5 typhoon, sinking both to levels never seen since the BDI was created as an index used to determine shipping activity The BDI hit something around 700, down 95%.

Like all fools who traveled in the low class bunks below the water line on the Titanic, I ran that margined trade to negative within a few months of Cramer's touting it as the investment of the century. Maybe the 19th century. Cameron could make on hell of a movie about my trades.

Ahh, the despised Jim Cramer.

Ahh, the despised Jim Cramer. I'm suprised someone hasn't run him over with a cement truck then backed over him a couple of times just to make sure. I view him as an excellent inverse trade. The more vocal he is the better the stock is going to tank. Those shipping warnings are the bell weather. Baltic dry is a good indicator. The equivalent of the changing of the seasons. You see the geese headed south in the iconic V and you know the end of fall is now and Winter is Coming.

Thanks for your interest! Our fee structure is designed to be transparent, and economical to all investors. Through 2018 we will not be charging storage fees, transaction fees, or premiums over spot. There are also no minimum order amounts. Concerning payment methods, we offer credit cards and PayPal at a 2.99% fee, and Bitcoin for just 1.99%. You can also pay via ACH, bank wire, or even personal check ; none of which carry a fee.

Thomas, the current spread

Thomas, the current spread for 1 oz. of gold is approximately $5.65. That is because we are selling our metals at the asking price with no premium, and buying them back at the bid price - 30 basis points (0.30%). Storage will be free through 2018, and there are currently no transaction fees. In 2019 OneGold will charge 12bps (0.12%) per year for VaultChain Gold storage and 30bps (0.30%) per year for VaultChain Silver storage. There is a minimum account level storage fee of $5 per quarter regardless of the metal. When there is a transaction fee, it will likely be a $8.99 flat fee. I think you will find that even when these fees are being assessed, this can be a much more economical option than storing your metals elsewhere, and paying a management/brokerage fee.

Signed up for an account but in doing the math, I don't think I will be a buyer at this time. It doesn't appear that I can link a Canadian bank account at this time. Having to pay 3% credit card fees + currency exchange fees + $8.99 transaction fees starting in 2019, makes purchasing digital gold more expensive than I can purchase physical locally.

Nov 21, 2018 - 5:29pm

I find this better than Gold

I find this better than Gold Money on several levels and have made arrangements for a new account at OneGold. The storage and transaction fees are better as well as more transparent APMEX affiliation puts it over the top as a better option on line current sell/buy price for me. Have to look at it more to determine if I move another overseas account. Thanks Craig for bringing OneGold to our attention!
