Did you end up selling the 25btc Cas? Kind of a cool method to sell via NFT. A hefty premium but interested to see if this went through.

Were these self funded, as in you sent funds to public key on hologram after receiving coin?

As a holder of numerous BTC physicals I think the market for selling is all but dead. The value of BTC is too high to transact via traditional methods and there doesn't seem to be any demand for physicals or cold storage BTC. When I bought, I always intended to hold, and pass them on to my kids to peel. Physicals are a conundrum because they have a higher BTC premium the lower the fiat value, so you'll never recoup your BTC, and most have realized that. I spent 17btc for a Cas 10, and so on, so would have been better off just saving the BTC on paper wallet for my kids, but I"m damn glad to have the Cas 10 and there are no regrets.

Do most collectors here find Cas coins to have more value if they are slabbed (graded)? Also, on a side note, does anyone have recommendations for grading 1BTC and higher Cas coins? Would it be better to just do it in person at the grading company HQ? I would not feel comfortable sending a 10btc Cas anywhere at the current price. Thanks.

Graded is definitely helpful when selling, more so with a lesser known seller.   Besides giving an indication as to the condition of the coin when slabbed, It also shows that at least since the coin was slabbed it has most likely not been handled or exposed to contaminants.

For grading 1 btc and above I would just fly to St. Pete, Florida and have them graded by ICG in person. 

Would you recommend ICG over ANACS?

Every peeled coin drives up the remaining value.  In 10/20/50 years they’ll all be worth 5x BTC price. Leave for the next generation.

If you disagree I’m not sure why you wouldn’t sell all your coins right now.

5x btc price or 5x $$ price?



I believe there will come a day in the fullness of time where it will cost 5 bitcoins/the equivalent value in whatever currency to acquire a funded Casascius 1-bitcoin graded 69, 70. 

This seems laughable now but eventually they will come to be seen as royal treasures, Crown Jewels of private and museum collections.  It might be 50 years or 100, but these will be wonders to behold someday.  The supply will steadily dwindle until there are just a few hundred scattered across the earth

Could happen but I don't think premiums will ever be that high. If BTC drops to $100 in 50 years, then yes. If it's the reserve crypto currency, then no way someone will pay $500k (example) for a $100k worth coin.

UPS with brown tamper tape, don't even declare value, just send it and it'll get there, make an arrangement with buyer and escrow to split btc if it's lost, tracking will show if something happens. I've had 10btc Cas shipped to me no prob. High declarations/insurance draws the most attention. Otherwise Fedex overnight. Wait til spring/summer, snow can mess up deliveries. There's always a chance, but it's pretty rare.

It's a great coin but probably best just keeping or peeling. You'll never get a $100k premium. The more $ BTC is worth, the less BTC premium Cas coins demand.

I'd be interested in the 10btc, although not sure on the premium when thinking about it in terms of fiat. Will probably be hard (and not worth the risk) to sell even a 1btc Cas once BTC hits $100k+. On a side note, what is your recommended method to friends for sweeping the physical coins? Always like to hear about different methods. Thanks


Well don't worry by the time we get pics of any of these including the 10BTC, BTC might just be 100k. As for sweeping here you go bud...

Personally I would just peel and store funds on a trezor. There are numerous risks with holding a Cas with this much value. Fire/Water damage, theft, degrading of private key under hologram, compromised Cas private keys (yes I know it's highly unlikely). It'll be difficult and not really worth the premium to find a buyer, so I'd just peel, redeem all the forks, buy a new car  Smiley, and hold the 100btc on something that you know is more secure and password protected.

There are a dozen reasons why a 10btc Casascius was peeled; inherited, stolen, anonymity (not selling directly), fear of transporting high value, etc...  The conundrum we all deal with here is the higher the value of BTC, the less premium we demand on our coins. Arguably the best time to sell a Casascius is when BTC $ value is low, thus receiving say 18-19BTC for a 10BTC back when we were in the $200-300 range. Now you'd be lucky to get 13BTC. I buy Casascius as a way to force myself to hodl and ultimately to hand them down to my kids, eventually all of mine will be peeled.
