I want one too, I just don't have 1.30ish BTC laying around. Maybe after dogecoin goes to $20 each I will pick a couple cas up.

i suspect the low circulating supply of these will drive a higher price than 1.3 in this market

I have been informed that we are currently awaiting information to see if we are still grading bitcoins. Apologies for this inconvenience.
However, I will email you as soon as possible once I receive more information.
Thank you.

3  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Is 2011 unredeemed 1BTC Casascius worth the hassle of selling? on: August 19, 2021, 04:06:10 AM
I'm a noob, and haven't dove into the crypto world yet.  This week discovered a forgotten about relic given to my spouse in 2012...a 1BTC Casascius.  (we had no idea what it was at the time, put it in a drawer and forgot about it.)  Selling it whole seems stressful in a realm I don't know what I'm doing.  Seems easier to just peel.  Is it worth the hassle to sell? (ie. would I make enough extra and is there a market?)

my personal opinion is that its worth selling if its silver/gilt silver or already slabbed. if its a brass, unless you have a local in-person sale, prob not worth the hassle of worrying about shipping/escrow/etc. i think market is like 1.05-1.09 per brass casascius (haven't check so please DYOR). if you redeem you get like ~1.02 with the forks.

Grading companies don’t authenticate these products as there would be no way to do so with many of the small makers involved, they grade it’s condition. It’s likely this misconception that has them refusing to further grade crypto coins. I doubt it would have been hard to get a fake graded a few years ago. People did used to address this concern with signed chains of ownership and dealing only with trusted members. I always thought at one point reputable sellers with long held collections would be a coveted premium, but we aren’t there yet from my experience.

I agree completely with OG here. When I first joined the forum I had lurked for a bit prior and when it finally came time to buy I made sure to buy from solid well known members with good reputations for doing business. As I continued to buy the reputation of the sellers only became more important to me over time. I don't know if this will matter for certain in the future but I certainly know it can't hurt.


Yes, but anti-tamper slabs are also valuable for time stamping. For example, there have been no great fakes of Casascius coins even to this date. So if you are buying a slabbed Cas from say 2018, and it looks like a Cas from any visible observations, and firstbits check out, it's likely to be real. Same can't be said for raw Cas in the future say if some compelling fakes come out. Provenance and chains of custody are great, but I don't see it as an OR but an AND situation. Also slabs do a good job at preserving the coins and preventing the urge to touch your coins Smiley

I like the Satori token load of 0.001 BTC. A bit more than pocket change today and could be a nice vacation in a few years.

Is seems like cheapo knock-offs are multiplying and that non-loaded tokens are screwed. The funded coins at least have the blockchain as an authenticator. With ANACS out of the game maybe IGC gets serious and doubles down with more service? Maybe something new needs to arise to help validate and preserve the value that designers are creating?

I think there will be more value accrued to the graded/slabbed coins that have provenance that they were graded early on / well before known passable fakes come out (whenever that is).

13  Economy / Collectibles / Re: ANACS no longer grading physical cryptos? on: June 02, 2021, 12:53:04 AM
Last I read ANACS slabs crypto tokens but no longer grades. So I guess there are 3 versions of the slabs. Gold background w/ grade, green background w/ grade, and now green background w/o grade?

It looks like there were no bids before 23:59 Paris time on the 16th.

Congratulations to the highest bidder : selassiesoildier with .55BTC

Please PM me so we can finalize the transaction.

OP, take a look at the timestamps. I was the last bid before 23:59 Paris time.

FYI, picture links don't work. Also the asking price seems orders of magnitude above the market price today.
19  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Casascius Loans on: February 18, 2021, 11:50:36 PM
I think another factor that will be appreciated more in the future is the "clean" history of the loaded coins. They are either straight from the block rewards (BTCC) or loaded in 2013 or prior (Casascius).
20  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [AUCTION] 2011 Casascius 1BTC coin (v1) on: February 15, 2021, 01:44:22 AM
BlackJonny turned out to be a scammer: tried to get me to peel the coin and send him the private key, when I insisted on escrow he started a 3 way Google Hangouts conversation with a sock puppet account named "Miner Jones".

Selling to therealNano instead at the same price.

thanks for reporting. and glad you avoided a disaster situation.
