over ten million unique hits, Thank you!

Introducing the Casascius Bitcoin Analyzer that checks the 61,560 generated bitcoin addresses (https://www.casascius.com/fulllist.txt) that was used for the Physical Bitcoin (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=41892.0) Project.

Features:
  • Live partial or full address Search
  • Displays all Active, Opened, or specific Denominations
  • BTC-to-USD Real-time bitstamp Totals.
  • Silver and Gold Real-time Totals.
  • Google API image charts (http://www.uberbills.tk/charts)
  • JSON API (http://www.uberbills.tk/api)
  • PNG image stats (http://www.uberbills.tk/stats)
  • Casascius Bitcoin Owners List (http://www.uberbills.tk/?page=owners)
  • Individual Casascius Bitcoin Pages example (http://www.uberbills.tk/?address=19tvjv1sqBgnUWqijZDvfoub6ZzZkC3M6x)
  • Opened list by year (https://casascius.uberbills.com/?opendate=2013)

      • Real-time USD Value
      • Real-time Silver and Gold Value.
      • Created date
      • Owned by (supplied by owner)
      • Comments
      • Classifieds (http://casascius.uberbills.com/?page=classifieds) :o

    The Stats aren't live because of the large volume of addresses to scan but I will be updating it Monday thru Saturday at 6 PM EST.

Now added the 1000 new v2 hologram addresses.


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: casascius on November 23, 2011, 10:15:31 PM
I am wondering how you are polling for the value.  Block Explorer?  Or from a block chain file stored locally?

In addition to how many are active, I would also be somewhat curious to know how many are redeemed (that is, they used to have a balance, now they don't) as opposed to never having a balance.

Since I am noting which addresses are series 2, the analyzer could also differentiate between series 1 and series 2 coins.


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: naypalm on November 24, 2011, 04:58:40 AM
The site simply displays the contents of a database, The actual script itself has to be ran manually. It checks block explorer and sets the address as active and the 'Casascius Bitcoin' type or inactive depending on what data the script receives. I'd like to figure out a way to scan the blockchain since I'm sure it would be MUCH faster as the script does take a while to go through. Right now I have no clue how to do this with PHP.

I'm planning on rewriting the script to separate the redeemed and unused addresses, as well as a way to to indicate v1 and v2. ETA is sometime next week  :)


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: casascius on November 24, 2011, 05:12:11 AM
Here's a couple of heuristics that might help.

Of the first series batch, these are all sorted in order, and you'll generally find them continuing to get consumed in order.  I have been burning the candle at both ends of the stick, with a bias toward doing the 25 BTC coins from the end of the list, and the 1's and 100's from the beginning, due to a slightly different depth and diameter of the hollowed circle in the 25BTC coin.  I have burned through 11xxxxxx thru about 1Axxxxxx (with the circles just barely cut for 1Bxxxxxx), and also from 1Ptxxxxx thru to the end of the batch.  Nothing from 1Cxxxxxx thru 1Nxxxxxx has been touched yet, the key circles remain in uncut sheets.

The 2nd series, the numbers are all printed, cut, dumped in a pile, and picked from at random.


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: naypalm on November 24, 2011, 05:30:15 AM
Thanks, I'll definitely take that into consideration when modifying the parameters of the script and it should cut down runtime. PHP is powerful, but usually poofs out randomly after a few thousand loops. :)

Post by: slush on November 24, 2011, 01:42:33 PM
Maybe using Abe would be better choice than polling blockexplorer. Abe indexes blockchain to sql database, so you can do complete check with only few SQL commands. Search "bitcoin abe" on google.

Common... Facebook is written in PHP, I'm sure PHP can handle a lot more than few thousands loops ;-).

Huh. There's a lot of the 100s opened.


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: casascius on November 29, 2011, 02:05:07 PM
There might be a problem with the analyzer.  There should be far more opened coins than is shown.

I believe I have loaded a balance on 3,836 coins so far (give or take - this is from a database that I use for going from firstbits to full address, which records when I do a lookup).  The Active plus Opened should total to very close to this.

Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: Raize on November 29, 2011, 08:53:09 PM
I wrote something like this as well using Yahoo Pipes to query against the list and then Block Explorer as well. To reduce stress on Block Explorer, it might be a better idea to write one based on Abe. How many people buy Casascius coins? Is there a need/desire for a website that does a simple authentication? What about if I made an Android app to go with it? Or if I made the website could someone make an iPhone and Android app? I would think a combination of the website and working phone app today would make physical Bitcoins able to replace cash tomorrow...


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: naypalm on November 30, 2011, 06:58:34 PM
Added a search box that will search for only Casascius addresses, works for partial or full addresses. Also added the version for each address. :o

Added individual "pages" for each casascius address, and now you can post comments as well! Think "WheresGeorge.com"


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: BurtW on December 05, 2011, 10:29:37 PM
You have a bug in the html for the hyperlink to the comment pages.  Just go try to add a comment to a 1BTC coin (using IE)

Also I looked up a few of my coins and one of them is missing!  So maybe you missed an entire load transaction?

The missing coin is http://blockexplorer.com/address/114cSY2WfLFcX32MiW7XWvrXxdoGiJxzCX

Which was loaded in transaction:  http://blockexplorer.com/tx/b7699eef794407b141020a77b706764c05460e9390e016b58d5da0c8c0ab9a48#o3

Notice I added 9 BTC to the coin before cracking it open and then removing all 10 BTC.  Perhaps the adding of BTC then reclaiming messed up your script?


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: naypalm on December 05, 2011, 11:13:19 PM
Yep, you're correct, i forgot to check IE. I missed an apostrophe.  :-[

Yep, if any extra btc gets sent to the address, it will get flagged as invalid Active with Extra BTC (http://casascius.uberbills.com/?status=extra).

You can comment on it tho!  ;) http://www.uberbills.com/casascius/?address=114cSY2WfLFcX32MiW7XWvrXxdoGiJxzCX


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: naypalm on December 05, 2011, 11:21:31 PM
If anyone else sees any bugs or errors, please let me know as I have only have a few casascius coins to test with.


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: casascius on December 06, 2011, 06:28:51 AM
Yep, if any extra btc gets sent to the address, it will get flagged as invalid.

You should consider just looking at the first (earliest) transfer that is one of the valid denominations: 1, 10, 25, 100, or 1000.  This has a very high probability of being the original funding transaction.  It is unlikely that someone will "donate" funds to my published addresses (other than bitcents) just to vandalize your list because unless they own the coin (implying I funded it), they will have no way to recover their coins.

People adding funds to coins seems like it would be somewhat common.  They work as pocket Bitcoin wallets, and then you have a few people who just want to experiment and see for themselves that adding value to a coin is actually possible.

Also, I might suggest that on the home page of this app, that you update the word "Inactive" to mean "Opened".  To me, an inactive coin is one that has been produced, but which has not been funded.  If you are interested, I would be open to giving additional stats on my coins... for example, I am able to identify certain addresses (or ranges of addresses) as "if they're not funded now, they never will be", as well as "a complete coin has been created with this address but it hasn't been sold or funded".  Might be of interest to publish.


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: naypalm on December 06, 2011, 12:11:14 PM
I'll see what I can code up for these "experimented on" coins. I'll post up if I figure something out. Gotta cram for next week!

Yes Yes YES! I'm definitely interested in the additional stats for the addresses! I'd like to go through the "Inactive" addresses and be able to mark them unused or broken and add that to the stats. A sold or not sold status would be cool as well!

Thanks for the suggestions and for the help!  :)


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: BurtW on December 06, 2011, 03:04:33 PM
I don't know how interesting it would be for this stats page but there are also addresses that never got funded and never appeared in the block chain - but were sold (I have some of them).


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: casascius on December 06, 2011, 04:46:55 PM
I don't know how interesting it would be for this stats page but there are also addresses that never got funded and never appeared in the block chain - but were sold (I have some of them).

As a scrap coin (already opened) right?


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: BurtW on December 06, 2011, 05:00:05 PM
Yes, I don't think your scrap coins would appear on this list (yet) since they never make it to the block chain.  But you could just give him a list of all scrap coin addressess if you have a list and there is interest in including them.  Personally I have a list of every coin I have purchased and I do include the scrap coins on my list.


Title: Re: Casascius Physical Bitcoin Analyzer

I believe I have solved the "experimented on" coin problem. If you find any I've missed, just click on the short address to auto-fix let me know.

Post by: casascius on December 10, 2011, 01:06:16 AM
The data is quite out of date, a lot of coins have been activated since 12/4.

EDIT: I have also published a new batch of addresses at my usual URL.  There are now 29,000 addresses generated for the Casascius Physical Bitcoins project.  They should last a while...

https://www.casascius.com/fulllist.txt

These have been printed, some have been cut and put in jars, others are still intact in sheets.  Because they come from a jar when the coins are made, they'll get used in random order, rather than sequentially.

plans:
1Au* will be gold coins
1Ag* will be silver coins
1G* will typically be gold plated coins or bars
1C* will be 1 BTC coins

Post by: coblee on December 16, 2011, 10:32:17 PM
naypalm, when compared to http://casascius.appspot.com/ you are showing a few more opened coins like this one:

http://uberbills.com/casascius/?address=13Foozg5TsBNVAnoLQQBLhMBMGTEncknnG

But this coin is actually not opened. Someone just added more bitcoins to the coin. But since it was never spent, it's possibly that the hologram was never opened.

http://blockexplorer.com/address/13Foozg5TsBNVAnoLQQBLhMBMGTEncknnG

One easy way to check for this is just to check to see if this is greater than 0:

Well, it looks like I got to fix my code once again. I Can't do that until after my next volley of exams next week then I'll have a bit of free time over break. Thanks for the advice, I didn't even know about the http://blockexplorer.com/q/ tools! :D

Well, it's been a little over a day since I've set the new script loose and it looks to be fully operational again, thanks for the suggestion coblee!

I also added several new features to the site including:
-BTC-to-USD Real time mtgox Totals.
-Silver and Gold Real-time Totals.
-Google API image charts for "Active" and "Opened" Casascius Bitcoins.
-Added the new Gold 1000 BTC and 5 BTC coins to the display table.
-Added the ability to list all Active (http://uberbills.com/casascius/?status=active) or Opened (http://uberbills.com/casascius/?status=opened) addresses.
-Added the Created date, which displays the date/time in which the address was first funded.

Let me know if you spot anything I may have missed!


Title: Re: Casascius Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: naypalm on December 31, 2011, 01:00:59 PM
Hello everyone, just a small update before the new year.

I've added a few new bar and pie charts (http://casascius.uberbills.com/charts) and I've also added a new field called "Owned By"; Just as a fun tool, not meant to be 100% accurate (because anyone can change the owner of the coin or bar) but interesting to see how many coins/bars someone can claim to own (http://casascius.uberbills.com/?page=owners). Check it out and claim yours today!

Also if it's been awhile or if you want to keep informed of updates, please check out the Original Post (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=52537.0) and discover all the newest features of the analyzer as they get implemented.

Have a safe and Happy New Year!

Yes this is possible. On the main page simply click on any denomination or status then click on which version.

Title: Re: Casascius Bitcoin Analyzer
Post by: naypalm on February 14, 2013, 06:14:58 PM
The site was getting hit by spambots last year so the extra CAPTCHA was required.

Check the bottom of the page, where "BTC:" is at under the bitcoin logo. If it says BTC: 26.52, you type in 26.52
Prices are in USD. The exchange is Mtgox.

Also: It appears that the ISP for my hosting provider is having issues today, so the website may be up and down throughout the day...  :-[

The chart shows 20, but I can only find 10 marked as 1+ in the list.
Also, if you know a link to help explain the whys and hows of overfunding, it would be greatly appreciated.

Kindest regards,

Thank you MIG, You are correct. There are 10 active extrabtc coins and 2 opened that are from the September 2011 batch. Heh, I mistyped a single variable and it was throwing off that one number.  :D

Also, if you know a link to help explain the whys and hows of overfunding, it would be greatly appreciated.

Kindest regards,

Overfunding -
Why? For the owner: It's fun, its a way to make your coin stand out from the rest, OR use it as a wallet.
For me: I was simply curious how many coins had extra bitcoin.
How? Send any extra amount to your Casascius Bitcoin Address and it will register on the website as a coin having extra value. Example: You have a 1 BTC coin and you send 0.01 BTC to it, making the total received to be 1.01BTC. That will cause my script to flag it as Extra and it will have the + sign by it's USD value.

Example: You have a 1 BTC coin and you send 0.01 BTC to it, making the total received to be 1.01BTC. That will cause my script to flag it as Extra and it will have the + sign by it's USD value.

There's another "why": you can use a casascius as saving wallet (if you really trust Mike).

Overfunding -
Why? For the owner: It's fun, its a way to make your coin stand out from the rest, OR use it as a wallet.

I trust Mike, but it's still a really bad idea. You can't backup your casascius coin!
Seriously, make an encrypted backup of your wallet, put it on dropbox or gmail. Then, when your house burns down including computer and casascius coins, at least you'll still have your Bitcoins!

It looks like Mike funded a bunch of the 0.5 coins, but they are registering as 5 BTC coins on the site.

Not really. Wish I could say why not, but part of it is I already handle bitcoin in a pretty paranoid manner to begin with.

If Casascius did make buyer-funded bearer bars, he certainly did not include the address or mention it in his public list of addresses (https://www.casascius.com/fulllist.txt). When I bought my 0-BTC Bearer bars, all I got was shiny gold stickers (no public/private address) to use as a "hologram".

All 3 addresses start with '1G' and were funded with 5 BTC each at exactly 2015-03-07 05:58:48. I am assuming he sold to someone either locally or to someone who made the trip.

Okay, but did you see the address they were funded from?

https://blockchain.info/address/1otohotohMoQoxHuxLBveQiZcV3Pji3Tc (https://blockchain.info/address/1otohotohMoQoxHuxLBveQiZcV3Pji3Tc)

Here's another transaction using the 1otohotoh address as an input:

https://blockchain.info/tx/98cc49d472e38abca3a2fa6c19140d0abb63531c9bd4f7fa78576db002ef2bff (https://blockchain.info/tx/98cc49d472e38abca3a2fa6c19140d0abb63531c9bd4f7fa78576db002ef2bff)

Thanks Molecular, I figured that was what was going on. Firstbits seemed to work well back then, but as more addresses were generated, then firtbits became unreliable.

This is another good example to other physical cryptocoin creators to why having a public list of addresses is useful. Especially if they only put part of the address on their coin.

One of many.  I would personally question the generation and security practices of cryptocoin creators that are unable to produce a list of the addresses they've put on coins.  Everyone else should as well.

Blockr.io is shutting down after today. Sadly all of my analyzers use their services. Until I find time to figure out a new source, I am suspending all analyzer scans. The sites will remain online but will not update the stats like before. Once a fix is in place, I will let everyone know in this thread.

Opening them, you lose value. Why would you

Generally it's when people need quick btc that they open. Either due to personal circumstances or because the market has gone up lots and then crashes. A few got peeled at the time of gox for example

I totally agree, but we had that bch fork and not a single coin should have been opened? Hard to believe.

Yeah it was broke, probably for awhile. I've fixed the issue, however I'll have to figure out a way to determine the opened dates for all coins that have an opened date of today.  

/frown

In other news. The total worth of all Casascius coins (Active/Opened) is over 1 billion dollars.

Nice! Thanks for updating the database.
So since end of May 2017 2,9% of all Casascius coins have been opened and 3,2% of BTC value of all Casascius coins.

I suggest to add a link to the overview of coin openings https://casascius.uberbills.com/?opendate=2017  (https://casascius.uberbills.com/?opendate=2017) i think most don't know this function yet.
One more suggestion: percentage column on coins active/open, would be great.

Thanks again for the analyzer naypalm!
