Thanks for helping me reach a personal Bitcoin milestone!

Thanks largely to the information and discussions here on /bitcoin and related r's, I've completed a personal goal of acquiring and spending 1 BTC without using any fiat currency!
I know this isn't a lot of value, but over the last few months learning about and experimenting with Bitcoin, I've:
To celebrate this momentous occasion, I spent my entire remaining balance of just over 1 BTC on silver bullion from Amagi Metals!
TL;DR I learned a lot about Bitcoin on /bitcoin. Thanks!

Hello free market enthusiasts, voluntaryists, philosophers, and everyone else that loves liberty!
I started Amagi Metals in 2010, and began accepting bitcoins as payment for precious and base metals in 2012. I am an Alumni Board Member of the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) and a strong advocate of individual liberty; free markets, and free minds.
I think that we are on the cusp of the largest nonviolent human revolution the world has ever seen because of innovative decentralizing technologies.
Amagi Metals has been one of the leaders in the crypto to gold and silver market and currently accepts 5 cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dark Coin, NXT Coin, Ripple). At one point, we were receiving more bitcoin than any other legitimate retail business in the world. We continue to do a large amount of volume in BTC and are one of BitPay's biggest volume retailers. Recently we released news that we will no longer be accepting US Dollars after 2016.
Our goal at Amagi Metals is to promote sound money and financial responsibility...which is a personal goal of mine as well. Ask me anything!

Being advised to post here instead of r/gold - Need to know where/how to purchase precious metal in small amounts but regularly.

So heres the break down. I am formally educated on economics and libertarian minded hence my interest in precious metals after this shit in Europe is eventually going to come to a head. Its finally spurred me to get something other than fiat assets in my life.
I recently starting mining Litecoins (Bitcoins largest derivative). I mine at least one Litecoin a day with my gaming computer while Im at work or asleep, or rarely when I am home and am not on the machine. Currently Litecoins are worth 3 USD , very volatile etc. Two days ago they were worth over 5 USD each, and if/when the largest trading hub of Bitcoins adopts Litecoins into its trading the value should go way up due to increased exposure and increased security as a unit of currency. Doesnt matter, I mine them in my spare time because I have every intention of converting them into cash or into Bitcoins. I then want to go to Amagi Metals or whoever else sells precious metals and accepts Cryptocurrency or a dealer who you would recommend to me for great pricing and good shipping and pay with fiat after turning my crypto into fiat.
So, as it currently stands I mine out at least 30 dollars of Litecoines a week. My power bill is included in rent so this is pretty much free money for me. My wife thinks of the litecoin mining as an interesting sleephobby and I want to make it produce real world tangible results. In my mind, investing these crypto generated funds into precious metals, especially with the previously mentioned Euro crisis part X raging (also consequently making my crypto funds more valuable) is a good idea.
So Im not dealing with big money here. Only a mere 120-145 bones a month at the current Litecoin exchange rate. Where is an ideal place to purchase small quantities of gold (or if silver suits me better so be it) either bi-weekly or monthly. If gold thinks this is ill-adviced and I should do something else also chime in, but I can tell you I really want to get some precious metals in my hands.
Thanks for reading and replying.

Bitcoin Black Friday is Upon Us. Lets Have a Little Look.

Before it even started there was some drama because some fraudster captain of the industry registered http://bitcoinblackfriday.info and was immediately flagged as a fraud by weak hands. The "real" Bitcoin Black Friday was quick to respond with information about this years even here: https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/3s5cs0/update_on_the_real_bitcoin_black_friday_com/
The most important part of that post is this little nugget:
Goals for this year:
100+ Merchants. (That's smaller this year! We're going to be only accepting quality merchants. After reviewing which sites actually got traffic and sales last year, the 'filler' merchants don't need to be there.)
So lets have a little look at http://bitcoinblackfriday.com/ and see what those quality merchants are.
It starts strong with Humble Bundle listed near the top. Their ties to them is so strong they listed them twice, first the weekly bundle and then the books bundle. Note that it's not a special deal or anything. They just link to the regular weekly bundle. Why not link to the main bundle you ask? Because that one doesn't accept bitcoin...
Need to buy honey and honey related products for bitcoin? http://www.beesbros.com/ has you covered.
Tired of the digital nature of the internet of money. Buy a physical bitcoin from Denarium. Chose between a bulls head or a pigeon. https://denarium.com/?apply_coupon=bitcoinblackfriday#products The nice people over at Hardbtc will also sell you physical versions of the low friction email of money. http://hardbtc.org/ocart/index.php?route=product/product&path=59_62&product_id=68
There are also paper wallets if you want to increase the risk of losing your coins: https://bitcoinpaperwallet.com/?special=BLACK
If you want some more valuable metals, Amagi Metals will set you up. They have apparently started accepting bitcoin again after not doing s for awhile. https://www.amagimetals.com/bitcoin-black-friday#
Here's a personal favourite. http://zimbabwedollars.net/ Yes, you can now buy the most worthless currency on the planet with the second most worthless currency on the planet. All prices are in dollars.
Want to buy some random used junk for local pickup in San Diego only? The Butter Zone is the place for you. No I'm not making this shit up. Behind the worlds dodgiest URL hides this little golden buttery gem: http://fs.tbz1.com/ Need a grey 3-piece suit, a spare tire for a Toyota Corolla 1993 or some RPG Books? Look no further. This is some top quality merchandise.
We all know that bitcoin's killer app is converting stolen credit cards into real money. Here's a new way to help the poor Russian mafia get some money: http://www.cheaperthansteam.com/shop/just-cause-3/
Here's a deal on a 21 Inc PiTato actual Raspberry Pi and accessories: https://pisavvy.com/product-categories/raspberry-pi
The Bitcoin News are selling 10 000 banner clicks for 50 % off! http://thebitcoinnews.com/shop/bannerads/10-000-banner-clicks/
I don't even know what this is and the website doesn't work. http://i.imgur.com/GUNRqe1.png Is it a joke? Is it memes? I have no idea.
Someone saw a hole in the market left by our favourite ex-bitcoin mod and are offering 20 % off of bitcoin soaps. http://www.bitsoaps.com/ They have a litcoin soap as well.
Want to buy contraband cigarettes? Bitcoin have you covered: https://www.dutyfree.io/ How can they sell their cigarettes so cheaply?
It’s because we purchase and send them from poorly developed, Eastern European countries where cigarettes cost a fraction of the price you’re used to pay in the West. There are still huge discrepancies in the standard of living across this world’s countries and as long as this discrepancy persists (as long as you guys keep on borrowing), an arbitrage opportunity will exist and will be exploited. We think Bitcoin helps tremendously in this regard.
They claim it's perfectly legal and that you will not have to pay any duty or tax. They are of course lying through their teeth. Proper captains of the industry.
Want to smoke in style? Get disposable Vapes from Julien Marley. Super classy mon. http://blackoutx.com/collections/juju-royal-by-julian-marley
There are many herb related sellers. This one sells some kind of hemp based pills that has loads of potential health benefits. http://hempsci.com/ It has Sci in the name and mentions loads of chemistry stuff on the site so it must be totally legit. One of the main selling points is that it's legal so it has to be good.
Want to grow stuff indoors, http://growershouse.com/ has all your hydroponic needs. I did not know bitcoiners grew their own spices and vegetables...
Here's a place that sell herbal teas including one that cures diabetes. Or at least has anti-diabetic properties. According to one study. Also, it was done on mice. http://readyherbs.us/index.php/product/diabetes-tea/
Next up is http://www.thaidye.com/ which offers tie dye clothing. Felt like a good segue from the herbs.
More clothes. The Mises store is on the list because of course it is. http://store.mises.org/Mises-Knows-Premium-Fitted-T-shirt-P10977.aspx
And lastly, not alpaca socks but socks non the less. https://www.soxinabox.club/ Subscribe to socks.
There are many more dubious business on the list but I'm way to lazy to talk about them all. Please, go through the rest of them because there's much comedy gold left to mine.

Ask Amagi Metals to accept Litecoins (and ask all of your favorite vendors)!

I've asked you to ask MT.GOX to support Litecoins. That went great and we expect Litecoins to be traded there soon. I've asked you to ask BitPay to support Litecoins and they've told us they're willing to when the mining level increases enough that they trust the network (it will be soon! Bitcoin gpu miners will be coming to Litecoins in droves as ASICs make the Bitcoin mining game unfair for them). This community outreach is what will bring LTC into the forefront.
If all of us can contact a new service every day telling them about why we like Litecoins and why we'd love it if they accepted them or supported them, Litecoins can grow without bounds.
Now is the time to get major Bitcoin accepting merchants to start also accepting Litecoins; Litecoins should be accepted wherever Bitcoins are. Amagi Metals has had great success with accepting Bitcoins recently as payment for precious metals. I'm sure we'd all love an easy way to buy gold and silver with Litecoins, so now I'd like to ask you all to contact them and ask them to start accepting Litecoins.
Here is an email you can adapt:
Hi,
I want to buy precious metals from you with Litecoins and hope that you will support them. They are similar to Bitcoins, but have advantages. Here is a good summary of why I like them: http://redd.it/1bbfdc
Litecoins are currently worth about $4/each, have a market cap of approximately 1/20th that of Bitcoin, and are still rapidly growing. I would like to be able to spend them anywhere I could spend Bitcoins. I think that Litecoins are still undervalued relative to Bitcoins, so if you are interested in Bitcoin as a still-deflationary currency I think you will be even more interested in Litecoins.
Please let me know when you plan to provide for this.
Respectfully,
me

Need some advice on buying smaller amounts of gold (or silver) semi regularly.

So heres the break down. I am formally educated on economics and libertarian minded hence my interest in precious metals after this shit in Europe is eventually going to come to a head. Its finally spurred me to get something other than fiat assets in my life.

If gold thinks this is ill-adviced and I should do something else also chime in, but I can tell you I really want to get some precious metals in my hands.
Thanks for reading and replying, I know my typing is atrocious but its 3 am and I wanted to fire this thread off before hitting the sack.

Computers mining for bitcoins are “mining" in the sense that they are guessing, over and again, to try and find the correct cryptographic key to add a new block to the block chain.
