Bumping. You can probably buy this coin for 1.12 BTC.

Please show the holo side so we can confirm it is loaded via uberbills.com  and place your forum name on paper with date as it is standard in here to confirm you have the coin

There is already a pic of the holo side, I'll add a paper photo. Thanks!
4  Economy / Collectibles / [Auction] Casascius Series 1 2011 Coin, 1 BTC unredeemed on: December 14, 2017, 12:45:56 AM
This is an unredeemed first series Casascius coin, including the misprint. Condition is scuffed up but intact. You could probably clean it and get it looking significantly better.

Note that the face value is 1 BTC + 1 BCH + 1 BTG, so bidding starts at 1.12 BTC with .01 increments.

Available for pickup in the San Francisco Bay Area, otherwise buyer pays for mutually trusted escrow.

Auction runs for 72 hours from the time of this post.

Thanks! I've been a trusted member of the Bitcoin community for over six years. This is actually a coin I gave to a friend back when they were $3 apiece and I am selling it on their behalf. They reserve the right to pull the listing.

I gave out 1 BTC Casascius coins to some friends back in 2011. Now, one of them wants to sell, and he asked me what the best to sell it way. Is eBay the best option? Is there a way to safely take PayPal, or would you need the buyer to pay in BTC? These are the series with the typo (single error, I guess) btw.

Dont use paypal.  If i were you i would start a new thread.  I would get pictures of the coin/s, offer escrow and you should be able to sell them here fairly easily

Sounds good. Thank you!

I don't take a gambling license for online very seriously, from any country.  I take feedback from real users and from my network of people that use CB, more seriously.  But each their own.  I appreciate the link , though it shows everyone as being paid so it's been a 3 or 4 year scam of people being paid?  Anyway...

Yes, they have 2FA and e-mail confirmation for withdrawal.



I typically play at Nitrogen Sports, which normally has better lines and they pay out within the hour, but Cloud does offer me instant withdrawal up to around 3.5 xbt a day... I'm not sure how a scam book would have instant withdrawals?  I don't like the fact they are a Montenegro book , but besides canceling lines or canceling payouts for people with 50+ accounts, is there any real evidence of them stealing people's money?   I don't have a lot of respect for people who take shots at bad lines, they deserve to have the bets canceled.  (I've had hundreds of bets and none have been canceled)  They have paid out around 22 xbt to me in the last week or so.
To false and misleading claim they would have a license is the criminal offense of fraud = scam! Scam do not only rely on whether a site pays or pay not.

The advantage of a license is that the identity of the operator/management is known and if the licensor do not fulfill its obligations, then he might could be hold liable as well. So the advantage of a license is that you have identities of liable people.


Funny that you have said that claiming to have a legit license is a claim of a criminal offense.
I just saw one of the casino's that you claim does not have one running an advertise that they in fact do and it is in big flashing letters on the screen! Isn't bitcasino.io one that you are saying does not or have it just like this one is claiming to have in Montenegro or where ever they think it is a legal and legit license?
I'll take a screen of it and post it on your thread to show everyone this and as proof of what I say is true.

And cloudbet support, you denied my withdraw of less than 1.09mbtc just the other day.
You asked me for my email address and I gave it to you in a pm but up until now no response in the last 5 days that I sent it. So I am posting it here and am asking for solid proof of the reason, including screenshots,logs or whatever it is that you can show the reasoning of why such a small withdrawal was rejected from your site when all others which were larger then this on was approved. Why all the sudden the denying your customers of their requests to withdraw available balances from your site now?!

It's a common question made by who is new in this world, and the answer is always the same, it's a scam.
If you see about the genesis mining and hashflare it looks like the legit cloudmining site but it will never give back your ROI and it's also including on the scam site.  Cheesy
Included on which scam site list?
I think both have been around long enough to survive. And isn't genesis mining part of the Winklevoss exchange genesis? They are the one's creating the bitcoin ETF. So they will only run if their ETF fails to get approved and then their exchange of bitcoins loses enough money and goes under.

14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Discussion / Assessing Cryptocurrency Use Cases on: February 07, 2014, 07:09:20 PM
Thoughts?

http://www.abcoin.net/post/75914054510/assessing-cryptocurrency-use-cases

Quote
These are the most commonly discussed use cases for cryptocurrencies. How compelling are they, and how might that change?

Private Transactions

This use case remains the one where Bitcoin’s advantage is the biggest. The exchange rate may collapse; mainstream usage might never materialize; Bitcoin could be supplanted by a superior alternative — but some cryptocurrency will be in use ten years from now, if only due to the demand for it from this category of transaction.

The Silk Road was Bitcoin’s first killer app. Illegal goods are a big market, and one where Bitcoin’s privacy advantages are highly motivating

There are also totally legal kinds of transactions in this category. It could be something private that you don’t want on the credit card bill, or a donation to causes that you’re afraid would put you on a government list.

Bitcoin isn’t strictly anonymous, though. Zerocoin's much stronger anonymity guarantees make it one of the few proposed altcoins worth watching. It won't be surprising if the Silk Road's successors adopt it.

Remittances

This is the most interesting use case to watch in the short-term. A World Bank report lists fees for existing remittances services at almost 9%, with potentially more fees at the receiving end. Whenever that cost is greater than the spread from using LocalBitcoins on both ends (and there do seem to be buyers and sellers all over the world), the use of Bitcoin for remittances might make sense.

The idea has gotten a lot of recent publicity, it’s addressing an existing market, there are no major technical obstacles, and startups like Kipochi and BitPesa are giving it a try.

That said, there’s no evidence yet of anyone actually using Bitcoin for remittances, and unforeseen obstacles could make it impractical. For example, what happens when there’s intermittent Internet access on the receiving end? Startups in the space must face regulatory compliance issues. We’ll see how this plays out soon.

Store of Value

Is Bitcoin a good store of value? “No.” Right now, it’s far too volatile, risky, and low-volume. How good is Bitcoin as a store of value? “Not very” — but that difference in framing is important, because it lets us see that there might be even worse alternatives. If you live in a country with a hostile national currency — places like Argentina, Cyprus, or, Zimbabwe — Bitcoin might be a rational choice for some part of your savings.

Everyday Purchases

Overstock.com recently became the largest merchant ever to accept Bitcoin. It’s telling that the testimonials on their launch announcement are more about ideology than any practical advantage of the cryptocurrency. Their decision seems to have been made mostly due to the CEO’s political ideology, not customer demand.

Ideology might be motivation enough for some buyers. Overstock’s first-day Bitcoin sales figures were impressive. But I doubt they will be matched for a long time. In fact, I’d hazard a guess that Bitcoin sales have fallen to near zero.

Right now, for everyday purchases, Bitcoin’s advantages benefit the seller far more than they do the buyer. Merchants get the lack of chargebacks, as well as the near-elimination of transaction processing fees, which for credit cards can approach 3%. Buyers, though, have no apparent motivation to use Bitcoin instead of a credit card. If Bitcoin saves merchants money, they should incentive adoption by passing some of those savings on to the consumer. People will go a long way to save a dime.

The story for in-store purchases is even worse. The user experience of paying with Bitcoin doesn’t compete with cash or credit cards, not to mention Square Wallet. None of those payment methods involves scanning a QR code. A better UX could make Bitcoin credible here, but even then, Bitcoin would just be an implementation detail — not better than any alternative.

Perhaps the biggest problem right now is that Bitcoin only travels “one hop” on the transaction graph. Consumers have to buy Bitcoins just to spend them. Then, the merchants sell them as soon as they are received. Both parties incur losses from the attendant spread and exchange fees.

This needs to change on both ends: people who get paid in Bitcoin will be preferentially motivated to spend it, and merchants who can pay their suppliers in Bitcoin will benefit more from accepting it. When we go from one-hop to multi-hop on the transaction graph, there could be a phase transition, like when random graphs become connected.

Smart Contracts

Smart contracts are the wildest idea of the bunch. Beyond just sending currency from one person to another, a blockchain could cryptographically secure more complicated transactions: things like wagers, property transfers, or foreign exchange trades. See this talk for a good introduction.

They’ve gotten a lot of attention lately. Investors like Fred Wilson are interested in the concept. Ethereum is an ambitious new altcoin built expressly around smart contracts. Even the Financial Times mentioned them in a broad take on Bitcoin.

Despite the hype, there are several reasons why we’re a long ways away from seeing any significant adoption of smart contracts. First, major UI and UX issues must be overcome. The official Bitcoin client only supports the simplest kinds of transactions, but even that much is confusing to people. Smart contracts will be far more so. Second, many of the proposed uses for smart contracts rely on real-world data inputs, like the winner of an election or sports game. These data have to come from a trusted source, so it’s not obvious what the advantage is over trusting a centralized bookie under the simpler transaction model. Finally, to use the typical example given by smart property proponents, why would you want your car’s ownership to be stored on the blockchain? With the frequency at which Bitcoins are lost or stolen, I’d rather trust the legal system whenever possible.

The solutions to these problems will be complicated. Smart contracts will be relegated to niche uses for now. But they may be the most interesting case to watch in the long-term.
