There is no issue with selling stickers and this is why:

You have to trust the person you get a physical bitcoin from, sticker or not. These things *cannot* be used as a regular currency or exchange mechanism, there will ALWAYS be a factor of trust required when transferring them, and there is no way to get around it. The utility of physical bitcoins is as a cold-storage wallet, and little else.

Anyhow, I'm redeeming mine and putting a sticker from a different company on it, because I don't trust Titan to hold the bitcoins, or anyone for that matter.



I agree that there is a factor of trust.  At this point, I only need to trust one company - Titan.
If they sold stickers, then I would have to trust everyone else with regards to the face value of the coin.

Your choice to redeem your coin is yours to make.  Why not post pictures and video on youtube so that people can see it being done.
I do wonder why you even bought a Titan if you don't trust them - Seems like a troll post to me.

I did notice you ignored the prior post about people making wallet coins in which they sell their own version of stickers so that you can seal anything you want.  It's the perfect answer to your idea of what you're trying to accomplish.

Good luck with your project.

The non numbered version that will be available for purchase as single coins or in rolls of 20 will be arriving in two weeks. We are taking pre-orders for rolls only at this time. Johnny211 has already confirmed one roll. Again only 1000 of the silver version of this coin will ever be made.

Ok, a roll for me as well.
(something something Blazed)

How much longer for the site?
Maybe I missed it.... payment methods?
1263  Economy / Goods / Re: Titan Bitcoins - Physical Bitcoins with 2-factor authentication on: March 23, 2014, 03:35:38 PM
I don't see the problem with selling stickers. Those silver qallets are priced at 3x or 4x spot value of silver, not a very good deal.

The problem is that a scammer could open up the coin, take out the value, and then use a sticker to reseal the coin.  So, an unsuspecting person might buy a coin only later to find out it has been emptied of its value (which could also happen at a future date.  If Titan starts selling their stickers, I would no longer want anything to do with them UNLESS it is a completely different sticker (Color and Text).

So, it would be possible if they produced a completely new coin - COIN WALLET or TITAN WALLET with completely different stickers that state COIN WALLET   (Open so you could use it for any coins).  This would change the entire topic as well.  I disagree with the silver wallets.  For Titan and any other kind of Silver wallet, the premium is already at or above what the Silver wallets are at.

If someone gives you a physical coin loaded with bitcoin, there will always be an issue of trusting the giver. What I want to do is remove the layer of trust, but still have a nice physical coin for my cold-storage.
Ummm, I would hope that Titan would NOT sell the stickers, just like Mike Chadwell (Casascius) will not sell the stickers.

You can buy a WALLET coin, instead of running off the Titan name using one of their coins with one of their stickers.

If you want a wallet coin, then it might be best to buy exactly that....

Something like:

Coins 1-36, 37, 40, 42, 44, 49, 50, 55, 69, 71, 99, and 100 have been sold

Who would have thought 69 was taken.

Can't wait for my coins.  Pictures look great.
1266  Economy / Goods / Re: Titan Bitcoins - Physical Bitcoins with 2-factor authentication on: March 22, 2014, 04:11:28 AM
I got one of your coins at the conference in Austin. I'd like to convert this coin into a cold-wallet with my own generated private key. Can I just buy one of your holograms?

Heh,
That would really enable the use of scams if people could simply buy the stickers and put on any coin.  Not saying you would, but....
Scammer would love to put his own stickers on and sell them.  Then sweep all the keys he sold at a later date only to make Titan look bad.

Why not simply use the serial on the site to get the public key and put as many bitcoins on to the coin that you want?

The cert looks nice.

However, personally, I don't like a website on it to reflex a reseller instead of the manufacturer.

How about the manufacturer create (or back) the certs and a site like what was done for casascius with uberbills.
1268  Economy / Goods / Re: Titan Bitcoins - Physical Bitcoins with 2-factor authentication on: March 16, 2014, 07:59:36 AM
I got a bunch of them.  VERY Happy with my collection.

Ok, I didn't PM.

all coins in 1st post are still available

Interested.
1272  Economy / Goods / Re: [WTB] Casascius 25 BTC on: February 26, 2014, 05:17:43 PM
R u michael from washington. If u decide on the 10btc coin, i can sell in person. I sold u two btc about 2 months ago in millcreek.

No, I am Michail from Washington.  Smiley
I remember us meeting.  I have interest in the 10BTC as well; even though I know what you paid for it.  Heh.

I picked up a 25BTC Casascius; however, I am interested in a couple more.  So, my thread is still alive.
1273  Economy / Goods / Re: [WTB] Casascius 25 BTC on: February 19, 2014, 07:00:07 PM
Looks like there must have been a miscommunication.... my PM didn't have a price...

I'm the guy that said I'm around Chicago and DC often.  I was looking to see if an in-person exchange was easy.

dumbchump,
Sorry, I hit the reply and to this day I forget that the reply is on the top right intead of the bottom right.  Smiley
So, yes, I was replying to someone else that wants 300% markup.   That's not for me.

And, it would appear we are too far away for an in person trade since I am in Washington State instead of Washington DC. (unless you were damn near giving it away or to fly here).  Smiley
1274  Economy / Goods / Re: [WTB] Casascius 25 BTC on: February 19, 2014, 03:32:52 PM
PM sent; I have a well documented 25 v2

Thanks for the PM; however, I am interested in realistic prices.

I do realize you have a nice coin; however, paying 300% is FAR beyond anything I would consider paying for it.  GL
1275  Economy / Goods / Re: [WTB] Casascius 25 BTC on: February 19, 2014, 03:28:57 PM
are you talking funded or unfunded?

I don't see a use for an unfunded coin other than dumping it on ebay as a token to someone that doesn't realize the uselessness of it.  (Unless the intent is to create a scam coin out of it).
1276  Economy / Goods / [WTB] Casascius 25 BTC on: February 19, 2014, 05:55:18 AM
I am interested in buying a 25BTC coin.

Obviously real at a reasonable price (BTC or USD).

Prefer local (Seattle, WA); however, probably and understandably not feasible with the limited supply of these coins.

Willing to use escrow with anyone more rated than me (#bitcoin-otc ) although might not be possible, so I will consider options.

Also, I have possible trades (Titan One, Titan One Silver) coins.

1277  Economy / Goods / Re: [WTS] Casascius Series 1 1BTC, 5 BTC, 25 BTC on: February 19, 2014, 05:42:09 AM
Do you still have the 25 BTC?  If so, can you post or PM images please?

I see the 25BTC coin is still listed.  Have you decided yet on selling it?
1278  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Re: Bitcoin with Raspberry Pi on: January 31, 2014, 02:04:37 AM
Are there updated instructions on how to run bitcoind on a Raspberry Pi? I'm trying to get the latest bitcoind working (0.86), and it requires different installation steps to what is in this thread.

I've fudged my way through, and now need to install Berkeley DB 4.8... unsure how to proceed.

Also, how do you store the blockchain on a different directory to the default?

The issue is that the master doesn't have the .unix file in src anymore.
So, download the 0.8.6.zip file.

> sudo apt-get install libboost1.50-dev libboost-filesystem1.50-dev libboost-system1.50-dev libboost-program-options1.50-dev libboost-thread1.50-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libdb5.3++-dev libminiupnpc-dev
> wget https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/archive/0.8.6.zip
> unzip 0.8.6.zip
> cd bitcoin-0.8.6/src
> make -f makefile.unix bitcoind

More info?

I was curious as to why you are requesting a mining operation of that size instead of simply someone able to provide that quantity.
it's for coin laundering. mined coins = no history

Got it.  That will cost a pretty premium especially since few miners (other than pools) can produce that many coins.  I would think Pools would stay away from such a risk as the miners would have a few issues with receiving what could be tainted coins for their efforts.
