Title: MESSAGE FROM GRAVITATE CASH OUT COINS NOW
Post by: gravitate on August 30, 2017, 10:10:42 PM
So I would like to give everyone the chance to check their coins on this thread. The time limit is 2 months from today. Also I would like to give you the advice to redeem your coins ASAP because I will not be backing up any claims or accusations after this 2 months. My coins are worthless so i am told and a lot of you have lost plenty of MONEY :(


So film yourself withdrawing the coin and if it in't there I will refund it. Providing the withdraw date is not after yesterday30/8/2017  :)


Some people think I kept the keys! Some people know I didnt fund some (accident man jees) but some people think I am going to scam EVERYONE!


So after 2 months the legitimacy of my business is finished and I will not answer anything. I have an extremely good lawyer in the UK so you have 2 months to act.

What I say to you is this. WITHDRAW ALL FUNDS NOW AND IF YOU DONT YOU RISK LOSING EVERYTHING. - for people that withdraw I will even provide a sticker for you to make it a DIY coin. Postage will be my pleasure.

You have 2 months to throw abuse at me. I am looking forward to it but kinda dreading it at the same time.

THIS IS MY LEGAL CONTRACT I HAVE NO CLAIM TO ANY OF THE COINS FUNDS as of DECEMBER 1st. - Until then I will sort out all problems.

Can you please clarify what happens after 2 months?  Are you implying that you will be redeeming what is left on all of your coins?? Because that's how this comes across.

I guess its like terrorism. Some people are nasty fuckers who kill people but most of them in the same situation are actually nice. But the evil bastards kill each other to prove a point and the rest of them follow blindly because they do not feel associated with the victim. Just someone say a good word out loud about me before these savage assholes cut my head off and leave me for the worms.



SAVE THE SCAMMER GRAVITATE.

I have purchased a few of your coins, and apart from having to PM you a couple of times to get them funded after receiving them in the mail, I've never had any issues. 

That said, you are giving me a lot of concerns about whether you intend to redeem these coins two months from now.  Please clarify whether your funded coins are at risk.

You are doing a disservice to anyone who has chosen to continue to hold your coins. Your post sounds as if you are declaring "no confidence" in your own product. You are hurting the value of your coins, and in so doing you are actively hurting your past customers financially. What was your lawyer's advice about this?


Title: Re: MESSAGE FROM GRAVITATE CASH OUT COINS NOW
Post by: gravitate on August 30, 2017, 10:53:11 PM
All I said in the written contract is that after 2 months I will NOT sort out any problems. Do you really think I am gonna fly round the world demanding peoples coins back? The only one interesting is bitenvy but I dont like angry parents. Just claim the coins or you are liable for anything that happens after that. I am through here. Scam this scam that scam anyone. I am out. Also I will not be providing the list of public keys until I get a computer to do so. How I feel right now I am seriously not bothered. Some nice people will probably not peel their coins. Then they will come to me saying ' hi sorry you had a hard time in the coin making industry, is it possible I can get a full set of public keys please?'     To those kinda people I would say yes. But all I give you now is 2 MONTHS. I will also make STickers AVAILABLE for 2 months and any mistakes repaid for 2 MONTHS :). Use this time! Listen to the people who call me a scammer and take the bitcoin which is yours. After the 2 months there is no guarantee.


I am not doing anything I am legally stepping away. When did you guys sign terms and conditions here? Are all of you claiming your bitcoin profits in tax? Are you all declaring your coin profits in tax from the sales of coins because I could name a few? My 3k profit in 3 years  is like laughable. 

I am not saying anything bad about my product I am saying I will no further be involved with these bull shit troll artists that you guys support. I am totally out after 2 months so MAKE THE MOST OF IT :)

People paid over what the loaded amount was, now you are devaluing them.  Im not attacking you but you seem unhinged.  Was just saying for people that bought your coins and now you are running them into the ground.  Maybe not from you but second hand sellers, etc about the premium.  Dam man im out good luck.

100% all. None to spare. Before december like I said I will sort out. Then we are 100% finished. If the coin was cashed out before today 31st or over 5 hours of you posting a complaint your coin is gone . Quite simple really. If its gone then I will allow the police to come raid my house and find my stuck together collectors magasine.

I estimate like 5%  of peolpe have problems which sucks I know but I always sorted them out. But I refuse to come to this shit hole to take abuse from blatent trolls who have no life or care for anyone elses thoughts. I am not an active part of this community and I am not a YES man. So you can blame yourself. Trust me I know a lot of other coin makers who complain about this shit. I am the 1st to say it. well there we go. 2 Months. After 2 months i am officially out. Simple.

The "key" problem it appears is that the easy to read code on the bit of paper does not sweep into any of the wallets I've tried.
Now I've checked and rechecked my typing of the code but to no avail.

There were no issues removing the holo from the coin and the text was easy to read. It just doesn't appear to want to be swept. Now, that could be me using the wrong method hence my request for you advice. Which wallet do you recommend to get this key swept?

It starts with a 5

If it's a mini key (30 characters) it starts with an S, maybe try that?

As the chances are reasonably high that the private keys are broken I would welcome a refund of the Bitcoin contained on the 2 Silver coins I have.
The one that has been redeemed in the video sent to you and the other in the pic here. As they are from the same batch I think it is fair to estimate that this coins priv key is also worthless. Batch error?

Please send the 0.1 refund to this address - 16xaiWYHhEw28gySEG9zJBXMX7MbiBZDKV

I would also welcome your comments on the 0.01 Coins in the second picture. Are the keys on those coins likely to be a problem? I believe they may have been part of your zombie batch. If so, again, a refund of the contained bitcoin would be appreciated, again to the above address.

Thanks Gravitate for making some cool coins.  I appreciate and will keep them with my Casascius and Lealana.  I think this is exactly why Mike said "mission accomplished" and quit.  Regulations were a headache but I bet customers are even worse.

Thanks for your contribution here.

Hey gravitate you made some real nice coins, I picked up two Russian Roulettes from another member and they are definitely in my top 3 favorite coins I own.

The funding issues suck and I'm sure staring at strings and strings of numbers while funding them may have led to the issues presented. Care and attention is so important with bitcoin and mistakes have cost a lot of people (buyer and seller) a lot of their hard earned money. I believe this to be a problem on both sides of the situation here.

It will prove interesting once people begin to peel and we will see if it may have been an honest mistake or if it were malicious. We all buy physical coins and put our blind trust in the coin creators to do the right thing... Probably more than we should to be honest..

If you peel please speak up here guys.

THIS IS MY LEGAL CONTRACT I HAVE NO CLAIM TO ANY OF THE COINS FUNDS as of DECEMBER 1st. - Until then I will sort out all problems.

I'm glad you're warning the buyers of your coins. But, I've been doing this for almost a year.  

Legitimacy?  You never finished the gold digger series.  You never made me whole in my scam accusation #1.  You never addressed my scam accusation #2.  You have scammed me two times now with 3 different coins.  This is fact!  I have laid out all of my evidence which points to both coins being received without funds!  I bought 3 different coins and were sold "funded" according to you, but yet they were not.  Want to talk about legal?  It is illegal to sell an item advertised as "funded" as you have done, but then ship coins to customers with no funds on the coins.  It is also what scammers do.  

And, now this post...  This post is no legal contract.  You refuse to make me whole again by putting these stipulations on time frames when I posted this latest accusation a month ago.  Basically, excluding me from receiving a refund.  What a way to treat a customer!  And, you have done absolutely nothing to address the legitimate scam accusation.  This is about more than a refund at this point.  But, what are you doing about my coins that should be funded?  I, like others have lost out on huge premiums because of this and by redeeming, then only to find out there aren't even any funds on the coins! 


I am not doing anything I am legally stepping away. When did you guys sign terms and conditions here?

How about your terms on your sale that says the coins will be "funded"?  I bought based on those terms.  Others did too.  I am not alone.  Vizique is showing multiple coins that were not funded when they should have been.  Jackblack90909 had multiple coins were not funded in recent thread (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1975259.0).  More evidence of a bigger scam.  So, how many of your coins are NOT funded?  We will find out...  


what the fuck do you mean premium? I worked my ass off selling them cheaper than anyone else. Explain. Yes I am ok. Just interested what your thoughts are :)

People paid over what the loaded amount was, now you are devaluing them.  Im not attacking you but you seem unhinged.  Was just saying for people that bought your coins and now you are running them into the ground.  Maybe not from you but second hand sellers, etc about the premium.  Dam man im out good luck.

Your coins had a huge premium because of the puzzle reward that no one is receiving because you didn't finish the series.  Once again, another scam.  Your coins are worthless because you made them worthless by making mistakes, not funding them, mixing up private keys to coin id's, messing up orders, upsetting customers, not handling things professionally.  I didn't do it.  I didn't want to post a scam accusation.  But, you forced me to because of how you handled everything and with the evidence I had.

He is just saying there will be no more support or after 2 months from now. You don't have to redeem Microsoul coins if you don't want to. Maybe I will redeem some of my coins because there is also bitcoincash on them, but I will sure keep 1 coin of each type unredeemed.

So if you have any problems regarding his coins act now within these 2 months and after that just leave him be, get on with life, enjoy life, be happy  ;D

Matthew just wants to stop with microsoul, that is his own choice and we have to respect that. Too bad, coins are nice and Matthew is nice and trusted guy.

What is there to redeem if he never loaded some coins? Thank God I do not have any high value Micro coins..only one 0.01btc..but in the past I was planning to buy more.

 He should stand behind his product not just fold shop and leave.

What about the buyers from outside this forum? Are they being told about this? These people who are under the impression their coins are loaded are holding coins that are either not loaded or have the wrong private

public keys being matched. What about future sales? Are unscrupulous sellers gonna tell their buyers about this? Probably not if they want to unload them.

Action speaks louder than words fellas, and this is deeply disturbing indeed.

Indeed, roughly $30 a coin for the silvers and $6 per brass 0.01BTC so $78 bucks down if BCH is included.

Disappointing to be sure.

yes, in the past I redeemed some 0.01 microsoul coins, all were funded. I also checked my unredeemed coins on blocktrail and all are funded.

Thanks for that, I only have the one 0.05 which is funded as per blockchain, didnt see much point in redeeming it. Gonna see how this plays out

He is just saying there will be no more support or after 2 months from now.

No!  He can't just stop being responsible for his past coins not being funded by posting this thread!  He is handling other people's money and is responsible if he steals, or defrauds his customers past, present and future.  Period!  No excuses!  This thread is a cop-out!  

I will echo what moonrock said:

If you made the coins you will be responsible for eternity. No excuses when you play with private keys.

Just because the public key shows funded doesn't mean the coin is!  The coin ID (or public address) and the private key under the hologram may not be correct.  I found this out the hard way.  The private key when trying to sweep had no funds, the coin ID and public address Matthew supplied did not match the private key.  So, you talk about trusting gravitate with your momey?  He is saying in this thread, you cannot trust him or his coins!  I am saying you cannot trust him or his coins!

Gravitate,

It's funny that you are lashing out at your customers when you are the one who has repeatedly fucked up so many times on customers orders.  Whether it's putting the wrong keys on coins, not funding the coins, or in the case of Vizique putting invalid keys altogether on the coins.   One has to assume that you are either a scammer or totally incompetent handling private keys. Either way, there is no room for these types of issues in this business, and I'm glad that you are finally admitting it.   

The next Encyclopedia needs to include a Hall of Shame of scammers and incompetents with Microsoul front and center, along with Coinographic and Alitin.

  A section devoted to scammers and incompetents has been suggested already and will probably be added. This will enlighten people who are not aware of what we know of, to stay away from certain coins that have a bad reputation.

What is this crap?? eternity?? you are always responsible for you own actions and buys. You know the risk when buying a coin from somebody else then you who knows/handles the private key. You should have thought about that before you bought the coin(s), this is with every coinmaker.

Years ago I had money on a bank account, the bank had a official license, the bank went bankrupt, bye bye money. I trusted the bank with my money, a risk I took. Legally I could do nothing, all my money was gone. That is the risk you take when you trust a third person or company with your money, you own responsiblity.

So I would like to give everyone the chance to check their coins on this thread. The time limit is 2 months from today. Also I would like to give you the advice to redeem your coins ASAP because I will not be backing up any claims or accusations after this 2 months. My coins are worthless so i am told and a lot of you have lost plenty of MONEY :(


So film yourself withdrawing the coin and if it in't there I will refund it. Providing the withdraw date is not after yesterday30/8/2017  :)


Some people think I kept the keys! Some people know I didnt fund some (accident man jees) but some people think I am going to scam EVERYONE!


So after 2 months the legitimacy of my business is finished and I will not answer anything. I have an extremely good lawyer in the UK so you have 2 months to act.

What I say to you is this. WITHDRAW ALL FUNDS NOW AND IF YOU DONT YOU RISK LOSING EVERYTHING. - for people that withdraw I will even provide a sticker for you to make it a DIY coin. Postage will be my pleasure.

You have 2 months to throw abuse at me. I am looking forward to it but kinda dreading it at the same time.

THIS IS MY LEGAL CONTRACT I HAVE NO CLAIM TO ANY OF THE COINS FUNDS as of DECEMBER 1st. - Until then I will sort out all problems.


Why would I bother redeeming coins you never funded ? You sold me empty coins but said they were loaded.  Plain and simple..

All the coins I've purchased from gravitate are currently loaded (even though some took a while). I just checked the following:
- 0.05BTC Russian Roulette (funded by you and confirmed by me at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1248541.msg15394656#msg15394656)
- 0.05BTC 2016 series (funded by you and confirmed by me at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1248541.msg15394656#msg15394656)
- 0.01BTC 2014 series
- 0.01BTC 2013 coin

The Zombie coin (https://i.imgur.com/R6aXfyd.jpg?1) you gifted me (or I bought, I don't remember) seems to be loaded as well (firstbit (https://www.walletexplorer.com/address/13LR5yCRGbqb4TVEM9YcF71xzteiZJQ1LA?from_firstbits=13LR5yCR)).

Of course, I did not peel the coins, since that would be quite wasteful as I prefer coins in pristine condition if possible, so I cannot confirm if the private key matches the public key. I sure hope it does.

It appears that gravitate is a crytpo- cluster-fuck when it comes to public relations and private key/ public address handling and is a major fuckup as a coin creator....  It seems ,  The addresses he funded are not the addresses to ANY of the private keys on his coins.... How the fuck do you overlook Something this serious in the business.... So if you want to preserve and protect any digital bitcoins that were supposed to be loaded...... Peel now or forever loose your bits....  He will only honor this til DEC 1, 2017.. at which time he will then vanish and move on to another scammy venture.....

This is the way I am taking this....  It is both a threat and a promise.......

Now My personal opinion....  everyone should Peel and get back any coins you can...  And Bitcoin bankrupt this mother fucking scum bag if he is going to man up and honor his mess for only two months... 

At least he is doing that much.....to correct the problem.. I have to give him that at least.... But only that...

The decision gravitate is forcing me to take is not one I enjoy taking. I'll either lose 0.23BTC (currently around $1100) if he goes through with his threat or I'll ruin six (currently) pristine coins. As a collector, it's a very hard decision to make. At least with Coinographic it was taken for me (and only 1LTC, which was nothing back then).

I felt the same then read through this thread and now just want to recover the BTC ...

whether the other "extras" like BCH and Clams is possible to recover I don't know but now I am withdrawing all sales of these coins.

I confess to being disappointed. I've liked many of the designs microsoul came out with. Ah well. It was not to be it appears. my own experiences of "making" has shown that it's not an easy task to cover all the bases.

Unfortunately, the Microsoul coins are too small to fit our hologram.... but this is a lesson for the future....

I believe so, when I asked the below question he stated "100% all" which I took to mean all Microsoul and collaboration coins made under that brand (Cryptoimperator/Microsoul Philopsoher coin for example).


Are all coins created under the Microsoul brand affected or only certain series?

100% all. None to spare. Before december like I said I will sort out. Then we are 100% finished. If the coin was cashed out before today 31st or over 5 hours of you posting a complaint your coin is gone . Quite simple really. If its gone then I will allow the police to come raid my house and find my stuck together collectors magasine.

Someone should make a google spreadsheet listing anybody who has a Microsoul coin, that they either want to redeem or get the original fiat sales value for it. Gravitate must be under immense pressure right now, whatever the rights or wrongs, and knowing who is owed what would be a fair start. You could also link to a photo in each with a hologram view and timestamped+username on a piece of paper.

This is a nightmare he created.  I would say, good luck making this list because it's a real life russian roulette!  That's ironic!

There is a reason why people want the manufacturer of the coins to have a list of public addresses when they sell them.  The manufacturer should be organized enough to 1) Handle private keys securely.  2)  Manage those private keys in the utmost care (and destroying them after applying to coin).   3)  Maintain a list of public addresses (not private keys)!  Did gravitate do any of these?

Essentially anything by Microsoul should be considered to be unloaded/faulty unless found to be otherwise (by peeling, don't assume from other coins in the same series). Depending on who did the key generation, the same should be assumed for the CI/Microsoul collab coin.

Knowing that bitcoin on them is unrecoverable makes them worth significantly less. Sadly, I doubt even the interesting history these coins have developed because of Mathews handling etc etc will ever make it worth NOT peeling then. With coins that are KNOWN to be at issue it seems to be the smarter move.
Where coin series have been shown to be good, and there were some I believe? Then yes, hold on to them unpeeled... but of course its your call.

I've chosen to redeem all that I have but maintain them in good condition once peeled.

Now My personal opinion....  everyone should Peel and get back any coins you can...  And Bitcoin bankrupt this mother fucking scum bag if he is going to man up and honor his mess for only two months... 

At least he is doing that much.....to correct the problem.. I have to give him that at least.... But only that...

At this point, what evidence do we have that he will actually honor his mistakes?  At least if one keeps the coin in tact, it has some collector value and a public key that shows a balance. If I peel, I have a worthless coin and a promise from a scammer/imbecile that he will make things right.

Pinging Vizique. Any updates on the coins you recently peeled? 

I could slap a public key that shows a random BTC balance on any object, doesn't make it worth more.

I agree with BG4.  Peel and redeem.

He will not honor.  He has not honored mine.  And, never will.   >:(


because of a couple people he is deciding to screw everyone over.
Who are these "people" that keep being referenced as having harassed this guy into losing his marbles?
I take it that he is talking about the people who he has outright scammed, such as bitenvy: reference link (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2055992.msg20505331#msg20505331).

Yes that and a couple people here and there.  But what do you expect people to do when they buy "money" and you guve them a piece of paper with garble on it that isnt the right priv key info.  He cant claim to be the victim under those circumstances thats just common sense

Because of a couple of people?   :o  Basically, me.  Seriously, are you blaming me for this?!?  He is to blame.  Only him.  I was only a customer and I didn't get what I purchased.  He is a scammer.   Don't put blame on me for his own mistakes.   :-\

Dont take my words out of context i am on your side.  All i was saying is that he is doing this cause a couple people got on his case (and rightfully so) id be hellbent if my loaded coins were found to have no coin on them.  If you read all my comments i am dissapointed he is doing this entire sharade over being hassled by people who have 100% right to hassle him.  Its not like people randomly are harassing him.  Either way i hope you get your dough back even if its just the loaded amount.

Sry, I read your scam accusation. I've the same coins, graded, thinking about redeem them hurts me a little...

I would understand if a coin maker does some minor mistakes like funding a coin with delay etc, if he sells hundreds or thousands coins, but there is just too much problems with Microsouls coins, and huge problems like priv key errors, the way gravitate handles them is not professional, this is innaceptable.

It was the Philosopher's coin.
There were a total of 20 coins minted.... 10 of them were assembled by CI, 10 of them were assembled by MS.
As far as I know, there was only 1 of the coins funded and that was the one MS that Bitenvy had.

Oh bummer... It was tough to do but I just peeled three of my 2014 0.01 coins.  All three have zero BTC.  Two of the private keys were for different bitcoin addresses and one was completely invalid.  Naturally the addresses with the first bits still have 0.01 BTC on them.   

I did peel one of my 2013 0.01 coins.  The private key did match the public address.  I'm going to keep the rest of my 2013s hoping they are funded (but not banking on it).

I will assume all my 2014s are worthless.  We'll see if Gravitate honors the 0.10 he owes me....I'll ignore the BCH.  I'll peel them all or send them back to him too...either way is fine with me.  Not holding my breath though.  Thankfully I only have ten of the 2013s and 2014s.

Yes, and with the small amounts (0.01 - 0.05) who would want to peel them anyway?

And those who do find out would definitely contact Gravitate first.

What exactly did you mean by this statement?

A private key is just a random 256 bit number.  A private key maps to exactly one point on the specified secp256K1 elliptic curve.  The point on the curve can be expressed in only two ways:  the full form with the full x and y coordinates of the point and the short form with just the x coordinate and a sign bit.

Then these two forms of the point can be encoded into exactly two different Bitcoin addresses.

Are you saying you found a way to get more than the two possible Bitcoin addresses from your private key?

Are the two forms of Bitcoin addresses that correspond to the two forms of public key above.  A bitcoin address is the check summed triple hash of the corresponding public key.  They do not represent new forms of public keys.  They are hashes of public keys.

In other words:

The private key on the coin will be stored on the coin in exactly one and only one of these forms:

You need to decode the private key in the correct form.  There will be only one correct choice.

From these two forms of the one public key you will get exactly two forms of the Bitcoin address.  The compressed public key form will give you the compressed Bitcoin address form and the uncompressed public key form will give you the uncompressed Bitcoin address form.

I remember redeeming my 0.01 a while back.   You may want to try either using a magnifying glass or enlarging a high res photo.    In the font used a lot of characters looked the same.    Im not saying your coins arent empty, because it appears a lot of them have been, but at $45 a pop, it's worth a shot.

Post by: BurtW on September 06, 2017, 02:06:39 AM
This picture clearly shows that the private key starts with a 5 and that is followed by letters and numbers.  This means that the private key is (probably) in the "Wallet Import Format".  This means that the key is base 58 encoded.  This means that the only allowed characters are the following 58 characters:

     123456789ABCDEFGHJKLMNPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijkmnopqrstuvwxyz

Notice that 0 (zero), O (the capital letter O), I (the capital letter I), and l (the small letter l) are all missing.  So your private key will not contain those characters.  Also there is a checksum in the WIP format so if you type the private key into a good private key decoder it will immediately be able to tell if there is an error because the check sum will fail.

Obviously if you see any of the illegal characters then transpose them to legal characters "0" and "O" to "o" for example then try again.  

Assuming you get a good checksum you will then have a valid WIP encoded private key.

Since the encoded private key starts with a 5 it should correspond to an uncompressed public key.  However since there were some issues in the key pair generation and encoding just try both the compressed and uncompressed forms of the public key to form the Bitcoin address.  Does not hurt to try.

The private key you get can give you two different Bitcoin addresses as I stated above.  First try the correct version, the uncompressed version
 (since the private key started with a 5).  If that does not work then with some contortions you can calculate the compressed version of the same public key and the corresponding Bitcoin address. If neither of those is the correct Bitcoin address on the coin then you are out of luck.

This is exactly what I am "saying"

Here is private key from Lucky 5.6 coin

https://i.imgur.com/cWeF3QZ.jpg

Now, here is the correct address and private key:

13DQcF6FwiqNqzN38CP5Ux6KqpfHYv4VCe  /  L4iBNP5mEeoYznpS4Mhwe5ruZTmWWyitK5TyCvrqB7nHd8Yv3L6F

It did have the 0.01BTC as seen here: https://blockchain.info/address/13DQcF6FwiqNqzN38CP5Ux6KqpfHYv4VCe

BUT, shortening the private key at different lengths gave 4 more addresses.

I did this using the blockchain.info wallet import feature

19wcxrL5izN65SqBDaYoXjCuSFRgWPwfxJ  /     L4iBNP5mEeoYznpS4Mhwe5ruZTmWWyitK5TyCvrq

1KzPnXmb2q32frsXAPxpj9UBNLXRBdKmb2  /   L4iBNP5mEeoYznpS4Mhwe5ruZTmWWyitK5TyCvrqB7n

I was able to duplicate this process in my #4.5 and 3.2 Lucky coins as well

Post by: BurtW on September 06, 2017, 01:37:55 PM
I do not know what the heck blockchain.info is doing with the improperly formatted private keys you are entering there but using the "WIF checksum checking" dialog on this page:

http://gobittest.appspot.com/PrivateKey

We find:

L4iBNP5mEeoYznpS4Mhwe5ruZTmWWyitK5TyCvrqB7nHd8Yv3L6F has a valid check sum (2767919C)

L4iBNP5mEeoYznpS4Mhwe5ruZTmWWyitK5TyCvrq
L4iBNP5mEeoYznpS4Mhwe5ruZTmWWyitK5TyCvrqB
L4iBNP5mEeoYznpS4Mhwe5ruZTmWWyitK5TyCvrqB7
L4iBNP5mEeoYznpS4Mhwe5ruZTmWWyitK5TyCvrqB7n

all fail the checksum test as is expected.  All of these should have been rejected as they are not properly formated WIF private keys.

BTW since this starts with an "L" you should use the compressed public key format and the corresponding compressed version of the Bitcoin address, which you did.

ALSO I found that if you use the "Wallet Detail" tab here:

https://www.bitaddress.org/bitaddress.org-v2.4-SHA1-1d5951f6a04dd5a287ac925da4e626870ee58d60.html

It will give you both the compressed and uncompressed bitcoin addresses, which in your case are:

13DQcF6FwiqNqzN38CP5Ux6KqpfHYv4VCe  (compressed)
12X1rVtFnzYAZKskBakfAZYPF4HeqkgUSq   (uncompressed)

And it properly rejects all the incorrectly formatted keys you generated by hacking off the tail of the WIF formatted key.

Yup, on purpose. At least for the specific number I bought this is what I was told would work. I never tried it but it's worth a shot to anyone trying to redeem these coins.

Yup, on purpose. At least for the specific number I bought this is what I was told would work. I never tried it but it's worth a shot to anyone trying to redeem these coins. 

Holy hell, what?  So he turned the key into a puzzle?  What kind of wizardry is that.  Are you serious?

Is this picture from a PBC coin? Try this,

1. write it out in reverse (bottom right- left) (middle right- left)(top right-left)
2. add a 5 on the front
3. Swap the the last 2 digits
4. Swap the 15th digit with the last digit
This is your private key

BHcoin did something kind of similar on their CoA cards. This is for the original PBC coins.

Edit: It didn't seem that weird at the time. If someone stole your coin, they couldn't access the private key without the cipher is what I thought was going on.

Edit: Can anyone confirm receiving similar instructions from gravitate? Please post any variations.

Nope, never received any of this regarding privkeys. I redeemed several 0.01 coins in the time Clam got popular, all private keys imported in the bitcoin-qt without any problem. Also importered some on blockchain.info without any problem.

I dont get it.  Who would want a key pair that is intentionally scrambled for funded coins or unfunded.  Is that publically know for the microsoul coins?  I feel like i missed the memo or something.

Maybe Gravitate screwed up the PBC coin keys and he sent this out with them instead of redoing them. I think there were only a handful of the original coins sold. I trust the person who gave me that cipher and they bought the coin directly from gravitate early on.

Thanks for the confirmation. The dark background under the holo in vizique's image made me think it might be from a PBC coin. Vizique, I hope this helps recover your BTC.

This has to be turning into the most insane scam thread ever. If Gravitate ever comes back (Not holding my breath), I would expect nothing but bullshit as always.

Anyhow, on that note, I want to apologize to anybody here I ever resold those shitty ass scam coins to. I feel dirty right now. Fuck you gravitate, you are now a real scammer.  :-[

That is insane.

So, anyone who bought the coins on the secondary market better have known to get the unique instructions to cache in that specific coin?

If you do not have those unique instructions for that coin then you have to go back to the person you bought it from and try to get them.

Hopefully most of the people with these "puzzle" coins have the instructions with the coin.

To me he has issues, he has 0 client service skills and is lacking in organisation and technical skills.

This happens to RL businesses all the time, he needs assistance and not an attack from the community, maybe a sit down with someone who can help him out and sort the issue.

either that or he is a total scammer and needs a good kicking. Either or I think Dox might be a step towards helping the community...

I bought a PBC coin and redeemed it successfully a couple of years ago. I'm trying to remember what I was told as there was a little process to go through but it wasn't as complicated as the one listed. The private key printed on the coin starts with a K. I must have written the process down somewhere so I'll dig around.


Does anyone have his full Dox?

He used to have a scan of his passport on his website. He certainly looked after me when I bought from him so it's a shame it's all gone tits up.


Edit - I wrote the correct private key down too. With my PBC coin I had to add a 5 to the front and reverse the final two letters of what was printed on the coin.

Okay, this site https://coinfirm.org/product/pbc-coin (https://coinfirm.org/product/pbc-coin) provides a brief history and talks about the cipher process for the PBC coins. It sounds like Gravitate probably has a master list of these codes.

At some point in time I'm sure that was true but as the countdown to the two month deadline closes, this becomes a much slimmer chance.  He stated there were technical issues surrounding his digital components (hard drive/laptop/etc.) so I would have to assume all details are currently lost.

Edit - I wrote the correct private key down too. With my PBC coin I had to add a 5 to the front and reverse the final two letters of what was printed on the coin.

It was like this for me as well - it wasn't a complicated transformation or anything, it was just reversing a couple letters. Unfortunately, he either didn't send me the instructions with the coin (bought directly from him), or they weren't quite right, I don't remember -- regardless, I had to contact him to get the correct redemption instructions.

In his favor, he was very helpful and did help me redeem the 1 BTC PBC coin. But of course then I was glad I'd redeemed it, because if I'd sold it to someone else and then it had been unredeemable, and he'd been unreachable... the blood runs cold with terror.

And now that's where we're at all over again. I've re-sold a few low-denomination Microsoul coins. Are these people going to be knocking at my door in a few years when BTC hits $100k, and somehow I'm on the hook now? Thanks, gravitate.

Your whole post screams "I'm late to the party but just want to chip in some trivial input". Microsoul has been around since 2013, these issues have only been realised (in bulk) during 2017. Unless you physically demand to be part of the minting and hologram generation process, good luck with that, you're just working on trust with any coin manufacturer. What other pearls of wisdom can you bestow upon us?

Hey we went through this. you owe me money. I asked you for your address to send 0.1 BTC but then you said I owe you 1.85 BTC + 0.1 BTC. the 1.85 BTC was to pay you back for all the coins you bought. Well I told ya that because of your stress you made me not turn up to work for quite a few days so I think it is you that owes me money. Seriously lets just go lawyer to lawyer. This would be best.

Your coin is funded. There are a few block explorers that allow you to check bitcoin addresses using firstbits.
A quick scan shows that yours has been funded.

Consider yourself lucky. The remaining 1-2 of the ones that I have don't seem to show up on any block explorer suggesting that they might have never been funded at all  :(

No you arenít a lucky one.  All microsoul coins should be considered unfunded.  I peeled 3 coins that were funded...but the private key wasnít to that address....so no BTC.  I know I wasnít alone.

Anyone that had followed this thread that is selling them as funded is committing fraud in my book.

Well the fact that his are funded is a start. Mine isn't recognised at all.
Did all the coins have issues with the privkeys or only a number of them? if not then there might be a chance that his coin is actually loaded.
However, I'm more curious about knowing how this major mess up happened?

I peeled five funded coins and two were in fact funded....so he has a chance. 

I think itís still unknown if he defrauded everyone on purpose or if he was just really disorganized and screwed up really bad.

dumbchump - Were all of the firstbits showing up as funded on the blockchain?  I'd be curious to see any pics you have of the holos and the keys (assuming they are spent). 

2 out of 5 is unacceptable.  This type of half-assed exit scam where the producer only rips off a subset of the users, and subsequently offers them a limited time window for repayment, is still theft. Let's not forget that.  Remember Alitin? Exact same thing. 

There should be no ambiguity about it.  Gravitate is a scammer and belongs in jail.

I completely agree....I think he needs to be held legally accountable.  I also haven't heard of him actually paying anyone.  I bought 2013 and 2014 sets and requested to be refunded the BTC value of both sets of coins and never got anything.

The coin issue I raised in this thread where I peeled and tested the priv key that had failed. Gravitate did replay the 0.05 that was supposed to be on that coin.

The promised coins Matt was going to send out are yet to arrive.

I've never redeemed a microsoul coin before but if the key under the holo is a full private key than all you need to do is import the key into a wallet.  Although it seems as though it looks as though it's a game of luck at this point... :-\

It depends on what wallet you use.  Some wallets have an "importprivkey" function.  Look for a way to "import a private key" into your wallet.  Check their help function if they have one.  Use Google.  If you have an HD wallet more than likely the function you are looking for is "sweep private key".  In this case the wallet will automatically move the BTC from the imported private key on to one of the HD generated private keys in the wallet for safe keeping.

I used the sweep option in Electrum and this happened:

After I hit "Close", nothing changed. Nothing in my history tab or address list.

If I try to sweep again, either with the previous private key or a new one, the "sweep" button is greyed out.

Found it, thanks.

I just get "The value you entered does not appear to be a valid Private Key or bitcoin address".

I get the same message when I use the key that I sweeped in Electrum (previous screenshot) and a new one I opened.

It is very simple if the coin is funded, the private key under the sticker is the correct private key and the code under the sticker is the actual private key and not a private key that has been modified by an obfuscation algorithm (as some of the private keys were).

1. Peel sticker
2. Import or sweep the private key into one of any number of Bitcoin wallets.

Almost all modern Bitcoin wallets have either a private key import function or a private key sweeping function.

blockchain.info firstly to sweep the btc. Then downloaded electroncash to redeem the bitcoin cash.

I really didn't want to peel this coin, it felt wrong. But there is no way I could sell it with this type of controversy surrounding them, it didn't feel right.

I certainly make mistakes daily, but a  arbitrary cut off date decided by the person who made the mistake is stupid.   

Since I missed the cut off should I even try peeling the coins?  Seems pointless

There was no real cut off date and no meaningful amount of refunds.  I requested a refund immediately and never saw it.

Some coins do have a valid private key...some not....so itís worth peeling if you want the btc.  Please just donít sell the unpeeled as funded and screw the next person...

Hopefully this attempt to reach you will not be in vain, graviate (I notice you haven't been on in a while). I have a 2014 .01BTC Microsoul that, according to the firstbits, is funded. I would like you to explicitly tell me that you are suggesting removing the holo and redeeming the funds to ensure they are in-fact there, effectively eliminating the [substantial] novelty value these coins have, and that I paid for. Furthermore, I would like to know how (and if) you plan to compensate for this lost novelty value ($200+/coin). Or, can you assure me that since the firstbit lookup says the coin is funded, that it is in-fact funded.

Either way it looks as though you aren't gonna get the answer you want.  Novelty value you won't be refunded.  Can the coin be determined to be loaded without peeling and try to redeem, nope.  You peel and there is funds on there, then the funded coin price goes down because it's peeled....

Agree...I have a loaded Microsoul...Does it say it is loaded..yes...Is it? probably the public and private keys do not match. That is the way I will let it stay as the amount of Btc in it is very small.

It will be a part of our Physical Bitcoin collectors history, and that is the only reason I am keeping and not peeling.

Yeah if the private keys are good don't forget about all the sh*tcoins on them like bcash and bgold and whatever air drops since they were loaded.  The whole fork thing is getting tough to buy/sell coins

Your coin is funded. There are a few block explorers that allow you to check bitcoin addresses using firstbits.
A quick scan shows that yours has been funded.

Consider yourself lucky. The remaining 1-2 of the ones that I have don't seem to show up on any block explorer suggesting that they might have never been funded at all  :(

Just redeemed my coin and it was funded, guess I was one of the lucky ones.
