I bought a few silver coins from them, quite a while ago now, using bitcoin. But it was a Bitpay transaction and I don't think that they were keeping any of the bitcoin back then. They were just using BitPay to convert to fiat immediately. But now, with them paying staff in bitcoin, I guess they are no longer converting all crypto sales to fiat immediately anymore.

I don't think that we should approach them until 1.0 release, but I think they are an extremely likely prospect to start using bitSILVER, bitGOLD and bitUSD. It would be a big win for them over bitcoin, which they are already accepting and keeping.

I think we should approach guys like this as soon as possible to start a conversation, to discuss it and get feedback but again I'd prefer if we had a delegate who fulfilled this role & was skilled in making contacts and building relationships vs. just us randomly contacting.

Contact made, these guys are a great fit for accepting Market pegged assets.
