Introducing the OneGold Mobile App with CEO Ken Lewis


As you likely know, one of our primary advertisers is OneGold...a partnership of APMEX, Sprott and the Royal Canadian Mint. Furthermore, you likely know that I am a very satisified customer and I believe that the platform is a terrific innovation and perfect alternative to the ETFs.

So today I thought I'd bring back Ken Lewis, the CEO of APMEX and OneGold. Ken was able to tell us about the current state of physical demand at the retail level and that alone is worth your time to listen. However, the true purpose of this podcast was to discuss and rollout the new OneGold mobile app. If you've ever dealt with something like Coinbase for your Bitcoin purchases and trading, then you'll recognize and appreciate the simplicity of OneGold's new app, too.

You can learn all about OneGold by visiting their website but you can also just proceed to your friendly app store to download the mobile version. In order to address any immediate questions, I've c&pd the FAQs below.

Thanks again to Ken for his time. I think you'll find this podcast both informative and helpful.

I think the quantity price discount

the platform gives you when you select 'convert to physical' will make up for the storage fees of using OneGold vs. making regular small purchases directly via the Apmex website...

I initiated a test in my newly opened account to place a phys shipment, and it gave me '1500+' quantity pricing.

That is a good idea to also set up an auto purchase schedule for DCA. Thanks for that suggestion!

"I am a 'you don't own it if you don't hold it' stacker. This arrangement I trust as an intermediate accumulation vehicle, and I plan to take regular physical withdrawals."

This is my exact logic also.
I created an account after listening to Turds pod last week as I have been looking for a digital PM investing tool over the last year or two. I come to many of same conclusions...this provides the speed, flexibility, and options I have been looking for. Currently adding $5 per day to Au and Ag each for a while to DCA.

OneGold: another $5 referral to Turd

I've researched several of the on line storage and account linked platforms recently and finally chose to create a OneGold account this weekend.

The account took a few minutes to open and set up, and the phone App a few minutes. You get $5.00 instantly in the account as soon as it is activated, can add cash funds via Credit Card, or link to another funding source. A few things I plan to use:

  • You can buy Gold directly from Silver ounces in your account balance with a few clicks if the Gold:Silver ratio goes down; likely at lower transactional spreads than you'll get at a coin shop.
  • You get best qty pricing on physical metal when you initiate a 'convert to physical' transaction, and it links you directly to the Apmex inventory.

I am a 'you don't own it if you don't hold it' stacker. This arrangement I trust as an intermediate accumulation vehicle, and I plan to take regular physical withdrawals.

  • If the new Bitpay cross platform linkage that Ken discussed allows the ease of converting Bitcoins and other crypto balances directly into physical metals as he states; this may encourage additional physical allocated metals demand as hoped.
  • A 'gold rewards' credit or debit card; if they offer it in the future would incentivize use of the account and linkage to Precious Metals as your preferred currency in a way similar to Kinesis concept; except limited to rewarding your personal spending, independent of the platform usage volume.

Dave Collum interview on Silver Doctors re: gold

If you like Dave, here is a recent (days old) interview. His thoughts on gold and gold manipulation at 31 minutes. Silver at 47 minutes.

if you're not familiar with Dave, this is his twitter feed. His year end review is a good read.

Rhodium could go vertical?

I'm trying to invest in Rhodium. There seem to be no ETF in US market. Was able to identify some miners producing rhodium. NILSY in Russia, but most of them in South Africa with a lot of problems...I'm going to add to the Group Ten Metals, though it's only an explorer...Any suggestions?

military resignations

Something shady:

I think there were several others who resigned before Christmas. This Foreign Policy article has some interesting angles on what's been happening. Apparently there IS some dissension in the ranks. I happen to believe Esper is a globalist and his holding close the Soleimani option for Trump's consideration might suggest the option was added after those normally responsible for rendering military option lists had finished their assessments and recommendations. An attempt may well have been made by black-hat operatives to keep the option away secret and away from those not in their circles. This is possible because many in the upper echelons of the Pentagon expressed surprise that this action actually happened.

Credit Unions are the ticket

in my opinion. They are usually local, owned by the members, and don't F with you like the TBTF banksters. I only deal with credit unions, since the early 80's, and I've never had a single issue. Federally insured as well. And, my experience is that they pay a few more ticks interest on CDs than your JP Douchebag-class bank. What is not to like?

I have Scheisseheimers Ass and head swapped places

James Gibson's book From West to East, The Greatest Transfer of Power and Wealth in the History of Mankind, does a deep dive into the story of the Puppeteers, in part telling the story of the greatest bank robbery in history of the eastern Mediterranean. Maybe less than the Sack of Constantinople but probably done by some of the same people. Templar Knights?

This doesn't LOOK like Cyprus????

Now, when did I buy tickets to visit Cyprus??? Sheesh, I must have Alzheimers!

Actually, it's worse. Cypriots could at least get a daily stipend out of their ATMs... they just had to endure the inconvenience of hour-long lines to use the machines -- with the risk the machine would be empty by the time they got there...
