Title: Interested in selling some casascius coins - but how to prove I'm honest?
Post by: Radix on May 27, 2019, 01:52:15 AM
So I have some Casascius bitcoins I've held onto since 2011.
I've sold a few on ebay over the years, but the hardest thing is to prove that I actually have them and get honest bids.

My coins have never been graded because I've not found a grading service in Australia that will do it, but they've been looked after and I have them stored in little plastic coin cases I bought for them to keep them safe.
I'm thinking about taking a photo of the coins with the forum in the background on my laptop somehow - would that be reasonable?  (providing i can get both in focus that is)
What else can I do to prove that it's a sincere sell?

It's worth mentioning that my forum account got hacked and some Russian guy used it to post stuff for a while there, but I've reset the password since now - not that I've ever made many posts with it anyway.

So yeah, credibility.. how to prove? :)

DO NOT USE TELEGRAM!

There are imposters of minerjones and many of us on Telegram.  Only deal here with known profiles.

+1, deal here talk to people here.  Too easy to scam or get scammed by leaving the forum to do deals.  Use minerjones as escrow and you should be good, some good high res pictures with current user name and date will help as well
