You have to solve that problem first.
You are attempting to jump the gun of what a transaction is. You're attempting to intermediate a transaction and making an assumption it would take place regardless.

"Trust" doesn't need to be there for gold and silver. It does need to be there for BitCoin. And it never will be because it isn't real. Thus you'll never achieve any significant level of trust to enable its widespread adoption.
