Precious metals dealer Amagi Metals announced it is now paying its entire staff in bitcoin via payroll service provider Bitwage.

The move forms part of the company's plan to 'divorce' the US dollar by 2017, where it will stop accepting the fiat currency as payment method.

Amagi Metals has worked with bitcoin for two years and, according to company data, 30-40% of its costumers currently pay with the digital currency.

And right now, THEY AREN'T ACCEPTING CRYPTO PAYMENTS although they won't tell you that until you're about to check out. You'll be forced to use PayPal or a wire transfer. Their official position on this, is that they'll have more info at the end of the week. As a loyal Amagi customer who got duped into a sale order and then either had to use PayPal or cancel, I'm not pleased.

Wow, seriously?  I was just thinking about shooting my few remaining satoshi's over to them to pick up a couple more silver coins but that is discouraging news.  Really doubt any Amagi employees are holding a very significant portion of their wages in BTC given current trend :/
