1  Economy / Collectibles / [FS/FO] 5 WDC Antaui Sliver - 1oz. .999 (2013) on: November 06, 2023, 07:45:55 PM
Well, it's that time.  I'm ready to sell off another one of my Antaui's.

I know this is BTC, but I've long been out of cryptocurrency.  I'd prefer USD, but feel free to make an offer in BTC.  If I feel it's worth the hassle (to me), I might take it.  You can find this specific coin in the linked Imgur gallery.

If you have questions, or would like to validate my reputation, feel free to DM me and we can discuss other ways to connect. I know I use this old account of mine 1-2 times a year now, mostly to keep it alive and unload the few crypto assets I have left.

Oh, and all of the stuff in the Imgur gallery is for sale.  However, the 5 WDC Antaui is the only thing that's crypto related.  Regardless, if somethings caught your eye, feel free to enquire about that too.

2  Economy / Goods / [WTS] NxtDROP Asset Tokens (The first "NFT") for BTC, ETH or NXT on: March 10, 2022, 04:51:55 PM
I understand that Nxt is a currency long gone and no longer has much support, but the blockchain is still table and doing fine in that regard.  Historically, Nxt offered many "firsts" and shortly after the integrated "Asset Exchange" was introduced,  the first fractional ownership of a piece of art was posted on the asset exchange and is considered by many to be the first "NFT".  Yes, this asset is a bit different since ownership of the asset is proportional ownership of the painting, but it was the start of the concept.  NxtDROP issued 100,000 shares in the painting.

From the Nxt Asset on the Nxt blockchain:

"NXTdrop" is the worlds first decentralized oil painting. To have an possibility to follow this paintings value in realtime and to have it as an decentralized asset; is totally a new concept in the world of fine art. I am looking forward to ship this painting over to the NXT-team to take it in a very public places and to take a good care of it. Hopefully, some day, it will find its way to a nice (modern art) museum. More info available in:

If you are interested in owning a piece of this history, I am willing to accept BTC/ETH or NXT.  For those purchasing with BTC or ETH, if you do not want to try and get some Nxt from an exchange since only a few exchanges still offer this currency, feel free to download the wallet and create an account.  I'll not only transfer your shares, but I'll include 10 complementary Nxt so that you have the funds to pay for future fees to transfer or sell these.

I'm open to offers.  I'm not giving these away dirt cheap as there has been a little bit of buzz about these over the past 6 months.  There has even a bit of work to try and move some of these assets to a DAPP on ETH linked to Nxt so that NFTs can be sold directly in ETH or OpenSea and hold the actual attached assets in Nxt. When that is in place. it's expected that these might go for a decent chunk of crypto. 

I've been out of crypto for years so my lingo might be a little bit off.  Regardless, if you're interested in owning a piece of this history, feel free to ask further questions or PM me your offers for however many shares you might be interested in.
3  Economy / Collectibles / Auctioning on eBay a 5 WDC Worldcoin Antaui Silver on: March 13, 2018, 06:32:39 PM
I'm auctioning off a very rare Worldcoin 5 WDC on eBay.  I just want to get the word out about this.  I know these are exceptionally rare.  Only 500 were made.

Bidding starts at $1 and I'm willing to ship it internationally.

For a gauge in value, another seller sold two of these back in December.  These are the only Antauis that have been available for sale on eBay that are on their record:


This coins is also listed within the Encyclopedia of Physical Bitcoins and Crypto-Currencies.  These details from the encyclopedia about this coin can be found at CoinFIRM here:

Also, here is a link to the first reference to these coins on BTT:

The reason why this post says 2014 is because these coins were minted and sold to the initial buyers in late-2013.  However, we didn't receive our coins until early 2014.  That being said, these were definitely minted in late 2013.
4  Economy / Goods / [WTB] Nintendo Cartridge Games (NES/GB/SNES/N64) on: September 21, 2016, 01:11:16 PM
I am looking to collect all original Gameboy (GB/GBC/GBA), NES, SNES and N64 cartridges.  Consider the guideline below for what I'm looking for.

Cartridge Guidelines:

Carts must meet the following conditional requirements:

 - Cartridges must work.  This for a collection that I want to use to be able to play.
 - Cartridges must be US games.  Specifically, no PAL/JPN or Canadian variations.
 - Labels must be in excellent shape.  Very minor scuffs are ok but the image must not be damaged or deeply scraped.
 - Cartridges need to be in "pretty good" condition. This means minor wear from use is acceptable with a couple of scrapes here and there.
 - Minor cartridge discoloration IS NOT a problem.  This is a common issue due to the chemical make-up of the plastic.  The reaction can be reversed, so I don't mind this "damage".

Typically, I'm not interested in manuals and boxes.  However, if you have a ton of games and if a few of them come with boxes and manuals, I'm not opposed to make an offer for the entire lot and accounting for the additional ephemera.


 - Since reputation is important with BTC, you must have well established reputation.  You must either have significant Karma here, an eBay account in good standing or, optionally, an account on a site like that has had multiple transactions with positive feedback.  All external accounts will be verified.

 - Unless your reputation is impeccable, I will probably want to escrow the BTC.  I've worked with Yassin54 and Seccour in the past.  Both members have frequently escrowed transactions and are trusted community members.

 - Shipping will be to the lower-48 United States and, if you are shipping internationally, please realize that I'm not looking to spend a lot on shipping costs.  If you can't ship to the US for a reasonable fee, I'm not really interested.

 - Payment will be in BTC or Paypal if you'd prefer.  I could also do Nxt or iota if anyone is interested.


Message me below, or send me a PM with your list of games.  Once the conversation has started, I'll PM you my email address so that you can send me photos of your carts for me to inspect.  Also, if you don't have any karma here on BTT, please send me a link to an account on either eBay or NA, so that I can verify your reputation.  Assuming I'm interested, I'll respond with my counter offer, or acceptance, of the deal.
5  Economy / Goods / [WTS] 2x $250 & 1x $100 Ruth's Christ Steakhouse Gift Cards on: September 02, 2015, 01:18:13 PM
I received these cards as a cash out of a rewards program.  I thought I'd try to get some BTC for them rather than sell them on eBay.

I'm willing to sell the $100 card for .4 BTC and the $250 cards for 1.05 BTC each.

I'm plan on honoring these prices, unless there is a wild jump or fall in BTC price.  I'm not looking to haggle much.  I'd just rather deal with BTC users than eBay/PayPal.

To be clear these are standard gift cards and there is no way to transfer or cash them out online.  If you want to buy these gift cards, I will need to direct mail them to a personal address or PO Box.  I will cover standard shipping fees (within the US) but if you'd like to get these cards insured or tracked, then we will need to discuss additional payments for these services.

Please PM or reply if you have questions.
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Marketplace (Altcoins) / [MRO][NXT] Looking to trade 50k Nxt for MRO on: May 23, 2014, 02:42:16 PM
I'm looking to save on time and exchange fees.  I am interested in diversifying  little into MRO.

Please PM me if you are interested in making a trade for Nxt.  I'm not looking to give away my Nxt, but I think we can work out a deal that's beneficial to both parties.
7  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / What would a mining algo need to look like for optimal NVidia mining? on: July 31, 2013, 04:47:26 PM
This is a technical question that I'm asking because I'm interested in the discussion but not doing anything with the information.  I've never programmed for GPUs but I can understand most technical, deep discussion and I'm asking this out of general curiosity.

I'd like to start a discussion on GPU mining with NVidia hardware by asking a rather open-ended question.  Feel free to respond with any thoughts that you may have on this.

First, are Nvidia GPU processors so specialized that they are pretty much useless for any type of transaction hashing and coin mining OR could a block-generation algorithm be taylor designed so that mining on NVidia GPUs is the most-optimal method for mining?

I'm not interested in creating a new alt-coin.  Still, I'm curious why no one has attempted this (or maybe they have and I missed it or the project failed!)  There are a lot of people out there who use NVidia cards and, for their intended purpose, they are great.  Still, everyone knows the drill-- NVidia is worthless for any form of mining.

So what's the deal? Is a NVidia-tailored coin feasible?  Discuss.
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Is there a guide to creating an Alt-currency fork of BTC/LTC? on: May 22, 2013, 03:49:04 PM

I'm not looking to fork and make a new coin.  Instead, I want take a snapshot of the latest Litecoin-Qt source and modify it so that you can create a one-stop, GUI-based source to load any number of alt coins.

Almost all of these new alt-coins are the same.  They fork LTC, the modify a few of the same variables and then they point the node look-up to different started IP or IRC channel.  If most of these coins are only 99.99% different from one another, an all-in-one integrated GUI could be easily made.

I'd like to make that client.

Any tips one what needs to be modified to make a full-functional scrypt coin would be helpful.  Thanks guys!
9  Economy / Service Discussion / Vircurex Functioning... any news on Cryptostocks? on: May 13, 2013, 04:39:49 PM
Ok, so I am well aware of the Vircurex/Cryptostocks outage.  I've seen the bulletins and I've been following Kumala.  Still, I can't seem to find any non-generic information on Cryptostocks, which is still down.

Has anyone heard any info that I might have missed?  Specifically, why has been Vircurex been back online for over a day now, and Cryptostocks is a completely gone with no message on the front-page?!

I manage a security and I'd like to hear "something" so that I can post info on my securities blog.

12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / [WTB] Selling Mincoins for Solidcoins -- MNC is starting to Skyrocket! on: April 25, 2013, 07:14:58 PM
I'm looking to buy large quantities of Solidcoins.

Willing to pay a 1 MNC for 10 SLC.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Buying Solidcoins on: April 15, 2013, 05:07:02 PM
Dust off that old wallet and send them to me!  I'll take them.

I'm willing to trade in pretty much any currency on Vircurex.  Since 95% of my funds are in BTC, BTC will obviously get a better rate.

PM me your offer.  If your offer isn't serious, then I probably won't respond.  There is no where to sell these things now, so get rid of them while I can still take them.
14  Economy / Games and rounds / [ANN] Bets of Bitcoin: Microcash will be released before Jan. 1, 2013 on: October 26, 2012, 08:32:44 PM
Microcash will be released before Jan. 1, 2013



The Solidcoin upgrade to the Microcash system has been promised for quite a while. A beta should be available "in the near future", but that has yet to materialize.

This statement will be considered accurate if, and only if, the Microcash system is consumer-functional by January 1, 2013.

Consumer functional means:

1. A working client is freely available.
2. The Microcash server node is operational and clients can connect to it.
3. A process is in place to convert Solidcoins to Microcash units, that is not a beta or test state. In other words, converted Solidcoins must remain Microcash units within the Microcash system. Test or Beta conversions do not count.

Between the execution of this statement and Jan. 1, if the developers determine that Microcash WILL NOT carry over Solidcoins, only items #1 and #2 from the list must be TRUE and item #3 will be considered moot. In all other cases, items #1, #2 and #3 must be true.

Opening date:
Bet deadline: Dec. 25, 2012 end of day Eastern Time
Event date: Jan. 1, 2013 end of day Eastern Time
Category: Economics
Total initial agree bets: 0.25
Total disagree bets: 0.00
Total weighted disagree bets: 0.000


So far, .10 BTC has been bet against the initial bet of .25 in agreement with statement.

15  Economy / Gambling / [ANN][RAFFLE] Enter for a chance to win shares in the MLAF security! on: September 11, 2012, 05:05:35 PM
First, this raffle has originated on the Microcash forum (see here.)

About a month ago I created a security on Cryptostocks for investment in future Microcash adventures. Tickets for this raffle are being sold in Solidcoins (which will become Microcash Dollars in the near future) but the security is listed in BTC so that a large pool of SLC/MCD can be purchased over time.

I know this is Bitcointalk but if any of you have Solidcoins laying around, this is an opportunity to invest them in a Bitcoin investment associated with Solidcoin/Microcash.  

If you are not interested in the security or Microcash, you can always sell your shares for bitcoins over at Cryptostocks.  The original raffle details are listed below.  Please message me or respond if you would like to obtain a deposit address.

Original Microcash Forum Raffle Thread
BitcoinTalk MLAF Release Page
CryptoStocks Security Page


Shares of the MLAF
(You must have a valid account so that I can transfer these these shares to your account.)

First Prize: 50 MLAF Shares
Second Prize: 25 MLAF Shares
Third: 10 MLAF Shares
Fourth: 10 MLAF Shares
Fifth: 10 MLAF Shares
Sixth: 5 MLAF Shares
Seventh: 5 MLAF Shares
Eighth: 5 MLAF Shares
Ninth: 5 MLAF Shares


Each ticket cost 50 SLC. If you would like to purchase a ticket, or tickets, send me a PM or respond to this message. I am going to create a special Solidcoin wallet for this raffle. When you respond, I will create a new receipt address for you and I'll send it to you via PM in the forum. So be looking for it.

In order to purchase a ticket, all you have to do is deposit as many SLC into your address as you desire, in 50 SLC increments. Please note, you will have to pay the TX fees. You can deposit partial amounts in this address (i.e. 25 SLC). You will receive 1 ticket as soon as the full 50 SLC is deposited for the next ticket purchase. Partial ticket purchases will not be refunded at the end of the raffle and will be considered donations.

For each 50 SLC you deposit, you will get 1 ticket. Ticket numbers will be assigned in sequential order as their TXs are processed by the Solidcoin block chain and their values will range from 0 to 255 (or 00 to ff in hex). Ticket assignments will be posted on this site and the total raffle is limited to 256 tickets.

All sales are fina, however, I will refund individuals who try to purchase tickets after the last ticket has been purchased but before I get a chance to update this post.

In other words you don't need to worry about someone buying a ticket before you, if there are only one or two left.  If I don't update this post, reflecting the end of the raffle, your deposits will be refunded.



The block hash of the final ticket purchased will be used to determine the winning tickets.

First prize will go to the holder of the ticket with the same two hex digits at that end of the hash. Second prize will go to the ticket with the same hex value as the byte that is second from the end, and so one. If any ticket number appears twice, the second appearance of the ticket within the sequence of bytes will be "thrown out", and the next byte will be evaluated for the next prize. This doesn't mean that you can't win multiple times. Instead, it just means that each individual ticket can win only once.

Here is an example hash and how the winners would be derived from this hash. (Spaces added between 2-byte pairs.)

00001c55b778d7b0a3f6023692b86c8ea48a1f588090 e1 94 ff a1 56 a1 05 2d 08 31

#1 Ticket 31 - 50 Shares
#2 Ticket 08 - 25 Shares
#3 Ticket 2d - 10 Shares
#4 Ticket 05 - 10 shares
#5 Ticket a1 - 10 Shares
#6 Ticket 56 - 5 Shares
#7 Ticket a1 (Already won, bytes discarded and next one selected)
   Ticket ff - 5 Shares
#8 Ticket 94 - 5 Shares
#9 Ticket e1 - 5 Shares


The pricing of these tickets is contingent on the current trading rate over at Vircurex. If there are any significant swings in price (up or down), I will re-adjust the price of these tickets for new purchasers.

This is a personal raffle and the MLAF is not holding, nor "supporting" this raffle. I, RLH, will be buying these shares with my personal Cryptostock account.

Please post any questions and get the word out to all who are interested! Have fun and play responsibly!

The Microcash Large Asset Fund
Exchange: CryptoStocks
Ticker: MLAF
Face Value:
    First 1,000 @ .10 BTC
         99,000 @ .11 BTC
Shares Issued: 100,000
Shares Publicly Held: 330
Contract Updates: Google Drive

Last Updated: (2013-03-14, 7:52 GMT)

Sales of shares for the Microcash Large Asset Fund (MLAF) are now trading at CryptoStocks.  The intent is to raise funding for future investment into profitable Microcash projects while promoting Microcash in the process.

Initially, Solidcoins will be hoarded before the network transition to the Microcash crypto-currency network.  When Microcash is released, the fund will begin earning interest through the demurrage system that is integrated into Microcash.

However, the point of the fund isn't to garner nominal interest payments through demurrage income.  Instead, as the value of Microcash increases (as we believe that it will) the  pool of funds will be reinvested into various profitable Microcash related projects.  Profits will be returned in the form of dividend payments to the share holders of the fund.

This fund is certainly a bit speculative.  No one knows what will happen when Microcash is available.  However, if you are inclined to believe in the potential of Microcash then this is a means supporting Microcash's future while putting your money in an investment that will provide  significant future rewards from the success of the currency.

The fund is being offered in BTC so that SLC can be purchased at the current, under valued price.  This means that when it the time comes to pay dividends, Microcash units will be exchanged for BTC and distributed as such.  For further information regarding the securities contract, please view the official CryptoStocks security page, or our website.
17  Other / CPU/GPU Bitcoin mining hardware / How can you know which GPUs work as mining hardware? on: July 27, 2011, 04:52:16 PM
I know this seems like a dumb question but I am a bit confused.  About a month ago, I checked out the Wiki page (here) regarding the comparison of GPU hardware.  I went out, bought me a cheap, but decent card and through it in a computer that I have.

After, installing various drivers and ATI/AMD SDKs, I never could get the thing to work.  Then, I think I realized the problem.  It appears that just because you buy a GPU with one of the listed ATI processors, it doesn't mean that the card is OpenCL compatible.  WTF!

What should I be looking for in a graphics card?  I know that most of the Sapphire brands seem to be guaranteed to work, but what are the specific specs on a card that make in compatible with the OpenCL drivers?

19  Economy / Services / Do you provide a service that offers payouts to your customers? on: July 23, 2011, 10:33:58 PM
I've recently created a service called the BTCANS (short for Bitcoin Address Naming System) that makes maintaining and sharing your primary bitcoin address a bit easier.  The idea is simple-- sign up with the BTCANS with a simple, text ID and associate your payment address with your account.  Other can always find your payment address by querying the service.  If you own a site or service that offers payouts to your customers, you can cache their BTCANS ID.  When it's time to make a payout, query the BTCANS and you will get their most up-to-date payment address.

This service is especially useful for two primary reasons.  First, text IDs (like john_doe) are easier to remember and share than long hash strings.  If someone wants to send you a payment, they can easily query your ID instead of having to search around for a payment address.

The second and considerably beneficial reason is for security.  Assuming your wallet was lost or stolen it would be extremely beneficial to have one central location that you can go to and update your payment address.  I know I personally have multiple websites that I have signed up for that offer various referral payouts.  Although I keep my coins in a third-party wallet service, if their site was ever hacked, I would want to update all of my payout addresses as quickly as possible.  A service like the BTCANS helps expedite the update process.

None of us hope or think that our bitcoin wallet will be stolen but as history has often proven, even some of the most well known and respected sites can and have been hacked.

If you're interested in the BTCANS please check out our home page or if you have any questions or comments, respond here or to the official project thread.

Please note that querying the BTCANS is extremely easy and will always be free.  Also, in the future I am planning on let merchants tap into this system, creating short-term on-the-fly payout IDs that they can use for payment processing.  These services won't be free but will be cheap.  Also, I have already integrated a referral system into the BTCANS.  If you refer a customer to the BTCANS, and if they become a merchant, you will receive a generous portion of their payments.
20  Bitcoin / Pools / Are there any mining pools that work through proxy servers/firewalls? on: July 22, 2011, 04:58:08 PM
I have a kick-ass computer at my work that I would LOVE to have mining.  My problem is that my office has a proxy server/ and a firewall that  blocks a ton of a-typical ports-- 8332 is one of them.

Is there a mining that has can be used through a proxy that also uses a port like 8080 for communication?  So far, the only miner that I've been able to use is since it's Java/Browser based.  It works, but as you can imagine the has rate is awful.
