3  Economy / Collectibles / My loaded 100 BTC Casascius Bearer Bar on: April 15, 2018, 02:28:52 AM
Many years ago, I bought a loaded 100 BTC Casascius Bearer Bar. Now, its value has gone up so much that I no longer feel comfortable holding it.

The first bits are 1Gop7ok6. It is version 2. I don't have any good pictures but I will take some if there is interest.

I don't want to peel it, but I don't know anyone that can afford to buy it. Is there anyone here might be interested in buying it?

Some stats from uberbills:

143 100 BTC Bearer Bars were made.
91 have been peeled.
11 were opened last year.
1 has been opened so far this year.
There are only 52 left (12 are v1 and 40 are v2).

Also, 1344 Casascius coins and bars were opened last year. 357 have been opened since the beginning of this year. They are getting more and more scarce.

10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / An easy way to send from several paper wallets? on: June 17, 2013, 04:12:00 AM
I accidentally did a sendmany twice, sending too much money to several paper wallets. I would like to undo that if possible without leaving the paper wallet private keys anywhere. Using bitcoin-qt, I could do this for each paper wallet: create a new wallet, import the private key, send the extra amount (accounting for any Tx fee), destroy the wallet.

Is there an easier way? A different client perhaps?

15  Economy / Goods / [WTS] 1 ounce 2000 gold Lunar Dragon bullion coin, graded MS69 on: February 10, 2013, 06:23:59 AM
I am selling my gold 1 oz. 2000 Lunar Dragon bullion coin. The Lunar series of gold bullion coins from the Perth mint in Australia is extremely popular with collectors. Each year for 12 years, the mint produces a different coin based on the Chinese Lunar calendar. Of all the coins, the Dragon is the most desired. In fact, the 1 oz. 2000 Dragon is probably the most sought-after modern gold bullion coin. It commands a price far higher than other gold bullion coins.

This coin has been graded and "slabbed" by NGC, a respected coin grading service. The grade for this coin is MS69, which indicates a coin in nearly perfect condition. The condition plus the demand make this a very valuable coin.

Price: , plus shipping (BTC0.2 - BTC1.0, depending on how you want it shipped). The price varies depending on the spot price of gold and BTC at the time of sale.

Escrow is ok. U.S. only.

19  Economy / Securities / [BTC-TC] Bitcoin Gold Trust -- CLOSED on: December 27, 2012, 10:35:46 PM
Announcing the
Bitcoin Gold Trust
Trading as GOLD on the Bitcoin Trading Corp (BTC-TC) Exchange
https://btct.co/security/GOLD
managed by John Galt Asset Management
john.galt.asset.management@gmail.com

The fund is closed. All remaining shares have been bought back. This thread is for reference only.

This post is a summary. A copy of the prospectus can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/18ZVDjRMGSiEWH6TTHmrLhT-z0clZLVP87w4fZMB1ZdU/edit.

Highlights:
  • Shares each represent 1/100th of a troy oz. of gold (initially).
  • Shares can be redeemed for physical gold bullion (in 1 oz. units).
  • Shares normally trade at the spot price, but can be higher or lower.
  • The fund strives to maintain liquidity and price stability (relative to the spot price).

The Bitcoin Gold Trust is an exchange-traded fund listed on the Bitcoin Trading Corp. Exchange. The trust holds physical gold bullion and issues shares representing its holdings. The purpose of the trust is to provide a way in invest in gold through bitcoin without the inconvenience of holding physical gold bullion.

The objective of the trust is for the value of the shares to reflect the price of gold owned by the trust, less the trustís expenses and liabilities. The trust receives gold in exchange for shares and delivers gold in exchange for redeemed shares. The ability to exchange of gold for shares is what maintains the nominal value of the shares at the value of the gold that they represent. The trust is not actively managed and does not engage in activities designed to profit from changes in the price of gold.

With the exception of cash held to pay expenses and facilitate operations, the fund invests exclusively in physical gold bullion. The gold is unencumbered, fully allocated, and will never be borrowed, lent, or used as collateral. It is stored in a vault at Wells Fargo and is audited periodically. The initial value of a share is 1/100th of a troy oz. of gold, though fees will reduce that value over time (see below). Regardless of the nominal value, shares can trade at a premium or a discount to that value.

The trust does not intend to pay dividends or cash distributions.

The trust issues and redeems "baskets" of shares on a continuous basis (a basket equals the equivalent of 1 troy ounce of gold in shares). A 5% fee is charged for redeeming a basket of shares. The person redeeming the shares is also responsible for paying shipping and insurance costs. Persons may redeem fractions of a basket at the discretion of the sponsor, but the fee may be substantially higher.

The size of the initial offering will be 100 shares, or 1 troy oz. of gold, but the number of shares can grow as more gold is deposited into the trust.

The only ordinary expenses paid by the trust is a fee of 1% per year paid to the sponsor. The fee is paid issuing an appropriate number of additional shares and assigning them to the sponsor, so the amount of gold that a share represents will slowly decrease from the initial 1/100th ounce. The sponsor currently agrees to waive the fee.

The fund allows a person to invest in gold with the following  benefits over owning physical gold:
  • Increased liquidity. Shares can be traded whenever the exchange is operating.
  • Lower fees and overhead. Typically, buying and selling physical gold incurs steep premiums, especially when dealing in small amounts. The fees for trading shares of the trust are extremely low.
  • A convenient way to accumulate gold bullion. A person can buy small numbers of shares over time, and then later exchange the shares for physical gold bullion.
  • A way to hedge against drops in the value of BTC.

Bid and ask walls will be maintained at approximately +/- 5% of the spot price in order to ensure liquidity. There will always be shares to buy at a reasonable price and shares can always be sold at a reasonable price.

The finances of the trust are listed here and are updated periodically:  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Am3m7aRNI-JbdHB4RE1fcDktUmdnSDJpZnpVdG0xY2c

20  Economy / Securities / [BTC-TC] BTC-Trading Pass-Through Fund (BTC-TRADING-PT) is closed on: December 21, 2012, 07:21:03 AM
Due to the closure of the BTC-TC exchange, the BTC-Trading Pass-Through fund has also closed.
Please read the following post for details: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=131891.msg3218061#msg3218061



Maintained for documentation purposes:

The BTC Trading Pass-Through Fund (BTC-TRADING-PT) is an exchange-traded fund that trades on the BTC Trading Corp exchange. The fund holds shares of BTC Trading Corp (LTC-GLOBAL) and issues its own shares that represent the assets held by the fund. LTC-GLOBAL shares are traded on the LTC-GLOBAL exchange and are denominated entirely in LTC. This fund enables investors to effectively own and trade shares of BTC Trading Corp denominated in BTC, as well as to receive dividends from LTC-GLOBAL denominated in BTC.

Each share of BTC-TRADING-PT represents 1/10th of a share of LTC-GLOBAL. Shares do not represent ownership of the fund or ownership of John Galt Asset Management. Shares of BTC-TRADING-PT are issued only for shares of LTC-GLOBAL actually held by the fund.

The fund accumulates dividends paid by LTC-GLOBAL, converts them to BTC, and distributes the proceeds (less fees) to shareholders once per month. Details are explained below.

Highlights

  • Shares represent 1/10th of a share of LTC-GLOBAL
  • Shares are traded on the BTC-TC exchange and are denominated in BTC.
  • Shares can be redeemed for shares of LTC-GLOBAL, and vice-versa.
  • Shares normally trade at 1/10th of the current price of LTC-GLOBAL but can be higher or lower.
  • Shareholders have limited LTC-GLOBAL voting rights.

LTC-GLOBAL Voting Rights

Shares of LTC-GLOBAL grants the shareholders special voting rights. While these rights are granted to John Galt, an effort to extend and transfer limited rights to shareholders of BTC-TRADING-PT is made.

Voting on LTC-GLOBAL motions: When feasible, an identical motion will be filed for the BTC-TRADING-PT security and shareholders may vote on the motion. The outcome of the motion determines how the fund manager votes in the actual motion. If this is not feasible, the fund manager may vote according to its own interests.

Voting on new security listings: Ownership of LTC-GLOBAL shares grants shareholders the right to approve new securities on the LTC-GLOBAL and BTC-TC exchanges. This right is extended to shareholders of BTC-TRADING-PT in a limited way. Whenever a new security is listed, a motion will be filed allowing shareholders to vote to approve the new security. At least 200 shares must vote YES or NO for the motion to be considered valid. If the motion passes or fails by at least 100 shares, then the fund manager will vote according to the outcome of the motion. The voting will close in 5 days for IPOs and 7 days for existing securities. Shares of the fund owned by John Galt or the fund will not participate in the motion.

Dividends

BTC-TRADING-PT normally receives a dividend once per month from the LTC-GLOBAL shares it holds. It is typically paid after the end of the month. The monthly management fee is deducted from the proceeds and paid to the fund manager. The remaining proceeds are converted to BTC and distributed to BTC-TRADING-PT shareholders within 5 business days of receiving the dividend from LTC-GLOBAL.

Fees

John Galt charges a normal fee of 1% of the value of the assets per year, paid as 1/12 of 1% each month based on the value at the time of payment. The fee is deducted from the fund's income, and any amount that exceeds the income for the month is waived.

Redeeming shares

Shares of BTC-TRADING-PT can be redeemed for shares of LTC-GLOBAL. Please contact John Galt Asset Management at the email address above, or by sending a PM to "John Galt" on the LitecoinTalk forums (http://forum.litecoin.net/) or "JohnGalt" (note the missing space) on the BitcoinTalk forums.

  • Shares are redeemed in multiples of 10. Each 10 shares of BTC-TRADING-PT is redeemed for one share of LTC-GLOBAL. The minimum number of BTC-TRADING-PT shares that can be redeemed is 100. The person redeeming the shares must have an account on the LTC-GLOBAL exchange in order to receive the LTC-GLOBAL shares.
  • There is a redemption fee of 1% based on the value of the shares redeemed, payable in BTC or LTC to John Galt Asset Management.
  • The LTC-GLOBAL shares are transferred as soon as the BTC-TRADING-PT shares have been transferred and the fee has been paid.

Depositing shares

  • 10 shares of BTC-TRADING-PT are issued for each share of LTC-GLOBAL. The minimum number of LTC-GLOBAL shares is 10.
  • There is a redemption fee of 1% based on the value of the shares deposited, payable in BTC or LTC to John Galt Asset Management.
  • The BTC-TRADING-PT shares are transferred to the depositor as soon as the LTC-GLOBAL shares have been transferred and the fee has been paid. The depositor must have an account on the BTC-TC exchange in order to receive the shares.

Current Financial Information

Detailed information about the financial state of the fund, including a description of the assets, the number of shares issued, and the NAV, can be found in this spreadsheet:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Am3m7aRNI-JbdElvTTc5Vmg3bUh2WDAwc2tsLU1JcEE

The fund's assets can be viewed on this page: https://litecoinglobal.com/portfolio/gbw4

If the fund closes

John Galt reserves the right to close the fund for any reason after giving 30 days notice. The management fee is waived during this period. All assets of the fund, including undistributed dividends, will be distributed to shareholders after the end of the 30 day period.

Shareholders can choose how to receive the distribution:
1. Multiples of 10 shares of the fund can be exchanged for the shares of LTC-GLOBAL that they represent. There is no minimum and no fee in this case.
2. All remaining shares of LTC-GLOBAL will be sold and the proceeds will be distributed to the remaining fund shares as a final dividend.

Acting as a Market Maker

John Galt intends to act as a market maker in order to improve liquidity by posting buy and sell orders simultaneously. In general, the bids and asks will be priced at the LTC-GLOBAL highest bid and lowest ask prices (approximately); however, the prices will be no closer than +/-5% of their average in order to reduce price and currency fluctuation risk and to avoid disrupting normal trading.
