1  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [WTS] My Casascius Collection on: January 08, 2021, 03:33:56 PM
I finally managed to complete the precious metals Casascius collection all with intact holograms, along with every year and denomination of the originals (along with the very first error coin).  I thought some people might like to see them, so here they are.  They are all loaded with the exception of the 1000 BTC, which still has an intact hologram.

Willing to entertain offers in the neighborhood of 45 BTC.


Not pictured is the St. Petersburg coin.

...and of course the originals.


OG...been a while...good to see the Casascius market still alive and well. So many of these coins being redeemed lately with low premiums and skyrocketing value of BTC. Think I saw a 25BTC go down the other day? At this rate, won't be many left of an already extremely limited initial supply. Will be interesting to see what happens to the numismatic value and premium once Bitcoin becomes the global standard against which other assets are denominated...

TECSHARE is selling them for .0076 at the moment - here is his thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5248897.0

not sure if that is the true value or not as that is the only other one I see for sale.

That's helpful...thank you. Not sure if his are signed/numbered...and not sure if it matters other than to verify authenticity.

EDIT 7-31 Item no longer available.

Longtime BCT members and Bitcoin collectors will remember this one...sold by Nubbins back in 2014. Limited edition "What is Bitcoin?" poster...this one is signed and numbered 76/100. Believe only 50 ended up making into the open market...no idea how many still exist. Here is the original thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=756955.0

These only come available once every few years. Awesome conversation piece to hang in the office.

Here are a few pictures of the actual poster being sold. https://www.flickr.com/gp/189490778@N06/7Z5b9B

Feel free to ask any questions. No idea what this is worth, so feel free to make an offer...if a solid offer isn't presented, will just frame and hang it in my office! Grin

Will accept most any major crypto. Thanks in advance for the interest...
4  Bitcoin / Wallet software / Re: Best way to store bitcoins safely without a hardware wallet(ledger,etc) on: July 21, 2020, 10:37:44 PM

the correct name is "Casascius" and it is not offline storage, it is a physical bitcoin

I'd hardly call a gimmick silver coin with a sticker over a QR code a secure method of storage.  

In any event, any of the coins that have been "slabbed" with the sticker still intact you would have no way of knowing whether or not the sticker was peeled off, the details transcribed and then carefully replaced immediately prior to encapsulation.  (We'll know for certain one day into the future if someone decides to cash in the funds)

Actually, its pretty easy to know...simply check the firstbits balance...if it's still there, the coin is not tampered with. Any scammer would steal the balance asap.

Collectibles are gimmicks to some and treasures to others...market determines true numismatic value...

Been holding on to a few Casascius domains for many years, but not using them to the fullest. Thought Casascius collecting community might want to know that they are now available for the first time since registration...here is the listing link:

6  Economy / Digital goods / (WTS) Casascius Domain Names on: June 28, 2019, 02:07:08 AM
Been holding on to these for many years, but not using them to their full potential...so considering letting them go to someone who can do something great with these exclusive domains. This is the first time since initial registration that they have been made available...

TheCasasciusCollection.com

CasasciusCollection.com

CasasciusMint.com

Selling together:
CasasciusBTC.com
CasasciusBTC.net


Considering offers...feel free to post here or PM if you'd prefer. Payment in BTC, major alts or Casascius coins acceptable via reputable escrow (minerjones preferred).

You can use ForkMyCoins. It can check 20 addresses at the time as long as they don't have more than 50 transactions.

This is helpful...thank you. Any way to also check airdrops like CLAMS?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Service Discussion (Altcoins) / Bitcoin Fork/Airdrop Total Balance Checker on: May 13, 2019, 04:42:41 PM
Been hunting around for a comprehensive Bitcoin address total balance checker that will show the total balance of all BTC forks and airdrops, along with current FIAT market value calcs and totals. I know about https://someone235.github.io/btc-forks-balance/, but it's limited and only shows a few forks, several of which show errors fetching balance. Searched Bitcointalk to no meaningful avail...guessing there are threads on the forum addressing this? If anyone could point me in the right direction for resources along these lines, it would be much appreciated...
9  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / The Potential Fatal Flaw in Bitcoin on: February 28, 2018, 04:28:32 AM
Been AFK for a minute.

Let me start by saying...as many of you know, I've been involved with BTC since 2013 and am a long time believer in Bitcoin and blockchain. But I try to look at things objectively and am always open to new perspectives. This op-ed published in Bitcoin Magazine today got me thinking. Makes some interesting points worth considering. Could the open-source nature of the new web be the very thing that hinders it...?

In terms of value versus potential...this little ICO that no one has heard of could be the next superstar. The best ICO you've never heard of...

CoinLion (LION) https://coinlion.com/ just sold-out its ICO and burned over 100,000,000 tokens today:
https://etherscan.io/tx/0xa9bcede2730264a4e541d2e442766690fdbc0606fef8c5774842bdaee320fb8d

Think of it as the anti-Telegram ICO...no hype, all substance...

I have PM'd all winners and sponsors.

Thanks again. Cheesy

Long been an avid Bitcoin proponent...never expecting such a reward in return!  My apologies for the delayed response...been AFK on the road for a few days.

Thank you again MJ for putting this on, and thanks also to all that participated for supporting BTC, the Bitcointalk community and the movement.

A very special GRACIAS to the extremely generous sponsors, which I'll take the liberty to highlight again...


Honored to be associated with BLOCK 420,000...another landmark moment for Bitcoin.  Guess I found my new lucky number...!

Understandable...especially regarding liquidity and exchange valuations.  If we step beyond the idea of numismatics and look at Casascius from an asset diversification standpoint...having some amount of physical BTC would seem to hedge risk...for anyone wanting to invest (hodl) in Bitcoin really.  Of course there are countless offline wallet solutions that serve a similar purpose, but Casascius has a well-earned spot at the top of the list in terms of potential appreciative value, in addition to its proven cold storage risk management attributes.  A 1BTC silver Casascius actually holds ~2-3BTC of value in one coin, at the current market rates...there are not many other cold storage solutions that can claim that kind of premium value store.  And as an aside, regardless of what one thinks of grading standards, having an early graded/dated and slabbed coin may provide some additional measure of security, if and when counterfeits become a major concern and enter the market en-masse...as is the case now with mainstream coin and card collecting.

With so few actual Casascius in existence overall, it would make sense that as more players enter the space, we may see increased demand for Casascius as a diversified BTC holding method...keep some liquid and some physical.  This demand driver alone may move premiums back up, without even considering collectability.


Today's Ethereum news seems a fitting example of why people will always look for physical ways to hold value in an effort to hedge risk...

[snip]

I'd say people are unsure of whether to hold on to their bitcoin or invest in physical coins since the value has gone up so much lately. It's pretty much going from a very liquid investment into a static investment that may not rise as much. There do seem to be a pretty constant supply of sellers, but few people are willing to invest such high amounts for such a small object and I can imagine most people would still think of the USD amount when buying such items.

Been AFK for a while...come back to find BTC value skyrocketing, but Casascius premiums plummeted...what gives...?  Since when did we start asking mid-teens for 10BTC silvers and selling gold 1BTC MS69's under 3BTC...?!  What the heck's goin' on round here...??

It would appear currently there are more sellers than buyers

Absolutely understood...but the question is why?  Last time BTC popped like this in late 2013, 10's were trading in the mid-20's (if you could even find one).  From what I can tell on the forums, perhaps there is speculation that people won't be willing to pay high BTC premiums as BTC value increases, but bottom line, Casascius coins are very rare and will only become more so.   If this is the case, numismatics history would indicate otherwise regarding premiums:   http://www.pcgs.com/News/The-Top-50-Us-Coins-Of-All-Time

Will be interesting to see what happens as more people enter the space...guessing we'll see a spike once we cross back over the $1000USD/BTC threshold.  People still like to hold shiny things in their hands!

Please forgive if this is "old" news and already posted, but it seems that BTC-E is under a DDoS attack and the site has been down for a few hours.  Anyone have further updates or info...?
