2  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.

I still pop in from time to time to check in and see if there's any interest in these.  I still have several, which I've mentioned before, but I bought both on the original release, and then picked up the remaining stock from Gudmunsen when WDC tanked after the whole Sharmbeck incident.

Anyway, I found the C# project that was created to allow you to scan a coin barcode and expand it to a proper key.  I don't think I can upload a zip here, but if anyone is interested, DM me and I'll try to take the time to create a Github with the code, or something.

Keep in mind, this is old so I don't know if it will compile or run.  It should have the code that someone can reverse-engineer, though.  Regardless, I think the original author took it from another tool on git an modified the address system to map to WDC addresses, rather than BTC addresses.  In fact, I think it might be the same tool (again, only modified to work with WDC) that was used to expand the OG Cascasius coins.  It's been yeeeeears since I looked into this stuff, so I can't fully recall.

That's a wrap! Thank you VernDog for your winning bid. I will send a pm

Also, Thanks to everyone that added details about Antaui World Coins. I saw a comment on the Antaui site that claimed something like, 'We can stop making alt coins now, World Coin is all we need.' That kind of aged like milk, but I will say the Antaui World Coin coin, is a nice little piece of history.

Steeley

I was never one to make comments like that, but we actually got close.  I was a late-comer to a small team that was building basically a competitor to somewhat new Coinbase.  Everything was working and we had bank transfers and all we needed.  I was brought on to actually write a coin-to-coin exchange.  

Again, I still can't go into details, legally, but we had to shut the company down, immediately days before it launched.  Had that not happened, I think WDC would still be a strong coin.  In fact, we were all major players in the WDC space and I also had a strong design outline to make WDC trim the block chain and allow for headless wallets.   Had we succeeded, the crypto world today could have looked quite different.  But, old crypto history is also filled with a lot of stories like that one so they don't mean much either.

Congrats on the sale!  .007 isn't bad at all. Also, your original post says 17:00EST, and it's 16:24.  You should still have about 30 minutes, no?

I had a couple of conversations with forum members about Antaui's keys. This is all anecdotal since they do not have a website or since no literature from them exists that I have seen; however, all of these coins seem to have been preloaded with 5 WDC. No public keys were issued. So, owners could only peel and redeem using the private key. That's the theory until someone offers up better verified info.

as an fyi - the WDC QT wallet does not recognize the private key on the peeled coin that I have - says "Invalid private key encoding (code -5)"

The Antaui key appears to be compressed as it less than half the length of the keys I have generated from the QT wallet.

Here's a link to a post in that thread where Gudmunson provided a list of addresses to the coins.

I also reached out to an ooooold crypto buddy.  There's a small chance he might still have the app or a custom script to decrypt the keys on the back.  I'll post back here if he ever responds.

Sorry, I was just re-reading that thread because I've not read through it since, well, 2014.  One user posted their price (in WDC) which was 82 WDC each.  That might not sound like much but in late-2013, that was about $40/each.

9  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:

Quote
"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: http://nxtdrop.blogspot.fi/

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.

I contacted the creator by email to see if I could find out more information.  I should have a sizable chunk of these NFTs coming my way.  I'm not looking to distribute all of them and would want to hold a significant portion for historical importance, but I can certainly get some moving on a market place.

I've been out of crypto almost entirely since 2017, so I have to get up to speed on how to handle NFTs.  I've read up enough to know conceptually what they are, but I've never looked into the technical specifics.

This is old school, but check this out:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=617211.0

I just posted over there because this old Nxt asset is getting attention from buyers.  I even had a journalist (well, so he said) reach out to me because he was getting a piece together on the history of NFTs.  Nxt broke a lot of new ground that many projects that came after emulated, and eventually morphed into what are coins now like Ethereum.  Nxt Assets were very much the genesis of the idea of an NFT.  True, ownership in NXTDrop is the proportional ownership of a single oil painting, however, the Asset Exchange could have been and was used just as easily for single-items and was even considered for use for in-game currencies, as well as a platform for selling digital assets through the marketplace.

You may take no interest in this specific piece of art and it's asset, but looking back at what Nxt was doing over 6 years ago might be shocking.  Some coins were already breaking some ground, but Nxt really pioneered of extending the capabilities of the blockchain beyond simple currency transactions and some

FYI, to anyone that cares, after I made this post and a few more on social media platforms.  After having been dormant for years, someone (or someones) have been making slow but steady purchases of this asset.

This is 100% speculation, but someone might be thinking about getting this asset some much deserved attention.
13  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / Re: IOTA on: November 05, 2021, 12:53:15 PM
Sorry for asking something that might have been asked before (possibly many times) but I was an ICO investor in this and actually cashed out a couple months before Iota launched on the first exchange (whatever it was.)  Sold my stakes on the OTA chat.  Anyway, I doubt I kept a "few" miota or anything, but I'd like to check.

Is there a way to check my really old seed?  Firefly isn't finding anything when I import my keys, but I'd at least like to see my old transactions.  I know I've kept all my keys, but I can't figure out how to update them to the current iteration of Iota.  Thanks.

You miss some migrations before crysalis swap:

Curl and Moonpay ones.

Now your "few" miotas are in hands of Iota Fundation.

https://blog.iota.org/unclaimed-tokens-community-treasury-and-iota-as-faq/


I don't think I did.  I remember the first migration and the block post mentions a final one in 2017.  I remember going through the 2017 migration and after that cashing out.  I should have just made the cut off, unless there was another transition after 2017 not referenced in that blog post.

I know this is a deeeeep Necrobump, but could this be considered the first NFT "art" to ever be sold?  I think it is/was.
16  Economy / Collectibles / Re: WTB- ANTAUI WORLD COIN on: August 14, 2020, 08:29:31 PM
I PMed OP.  I have a few of these.  I got out of crypto around 2017, but the last "relics" I have from those days is some old Antauis.

If anyone wants one, PM me an offer.  I won't say how many I have, but it's more than a few.
17  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Auctioning on eBay a 5 WDC Worldcoin Antaui Silver on: March 23, 2018, 05:26:12 PM
Ending in 3 hours.  This is my last bump.  Bidding is currently at $257, which is significantly less than former sales from this past December.

I know that three months has made quite a difference in crypto but even at $257 that's a good deal.

Looks like the price is creeping up slowly. I can see this coin go easily north of $500. Goodluck!

Thanks, seriously.  It's doing better than I'd assumed.  I'm sitting on a few of these since I was buddies with Nathan back in the day and a heavy WDC support at that time.

If anyone's interested after the end of the auction, if you can make a comparable payment in BTC, ETH or Paypal, I'd be willing to sell a few more.  My goal is to sell one or two every couple of years but, yeah, if people are willing to give a generous amount for them, in my opinion, I'm willing to part with a few more.

Yes, all of these were preloaded with 5WDC and no, I've not peeled these.  I'm not sure why anyone would want to though.  I'll see if I can make a note.
