1  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [AUCTION] Casascius coin, 1 BTC, loaded AUCTION ENDED on: December 05, 2021, 04:36:45 PM
I may find call to return again and will at least do you the courtesy of alerting you of sales / auctions of these coins elsewhere even if only to observe, assuming the likelihood of their being deemed to be overpriced by the OGs here. In the meantime, again but absent the 'sour-grapes-ness' of my message of last night, I'll wish everyone here the best for your endeavours and speculations Smiley

I wouldn't worry too much about it.  When people are overly negative for seemingly curious reasons it typically says more about them then you.  Obviously sales on this forum have slowed down a great deal, and the reasoning is extremely obvious although most people are in extreme denial over it...

These coins were once sold for less than $20.  Obviously they would change hands quite easily at those prices.  Now they're changing hands around $60,000.  It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that something selling for $20 is going to move more units than something selling for $60,000.  I understand a lot of people here are in absolute and complete total denial about the fact that 1 BTC does not equal 1 BTC over time and everything that has ever traded hands here has been done with respect to the dollar value, but it doesn't change the fact that it is absolutely true.  When it comes down to it, a lot more people have $20 to spend on a speculative coin then have $60,000 to spend on one. 

That being said, this coin is one I wouldn't put in my collection.  It appears to have some mold growth on it or something.  It would never come anywhere near any of my other collectibles, so perhaps you further limited your pool of available buyers with that... 

My advice, instead of being upset that you only got 1.05 BTC for this coin, be extremely happy that you just got $55,000 for a coin you probably paid a couple hundred bucks for if you've owned it as long as it appears.  Tell anyone outside of this community that story and they probably wouldn't even believe you it's such an amazing return.

Good way to put it - but still sucks when viewed in BTC:BTC terms and not fiat:BTC.  Ive watched the silver Cas coins go from 3+BTC to barely getting 1.3BTC and while the $$$ premium is great (and was often a rationale for the buyers of the precious metal coins) its hard not to be dissapointed when the BTC price barely exceeds the value of the coin and its various sidechains

sadly with the brass coins it seems like selling a peeled coin is the least risk and still pretty close to the same profit.

Is there any way to support Hawaii cards (ie: R9 270x 2GB)?

I haven't had much luck finding a linux-based miner that can play nicely with these older cards

SRBMiner-MULTI, PhoenixMiner, GMiner they work at least with my R9 390 8GB and RX 580 8GB cards. Probably there are more but I know for sure these miners work.
TRM I must say did work with my R9 390 but I switched to PhoenixMiner.

But your R9 270x 2GB is way to old to be profitable anyway.

interestingly, they should be marginally profitable at vertcoin, possibly some other algos ($0.20/day/card; and I have these 4 cards lying around unused since 2018.. And living in the North, the electrical heat isnt going to waste!

without buying another mobo (already too many mobos catering to different RAM capacities of individual AMD / NVDA rigs using SimpleMiningOS (SMOS)); I was hoping to use my RX470(4GB) cards alongside the R9-270(2GB) cards to mine Vertcoin but i think the drivers are substantially different. I can see the GPUs exist but they do not show/accept any clockrates and will not play nice with any of the miners i tested to date.

as FYI:
2x RX470 cards can make ~$2.50/day profit for me
2x RX470 + 4x R9270 can make ~$3.20/day profit for me (and the electrical heat further offsetting my natural gas consumption) so there's a bit of incentive to get the cards mining (plus the joy of seeing old GPUs still having some skin in the game!)

is verthash supported for R9 270X cards (2GB hawaii)? Obviously very old GPUs but great space heaters

Another factor in finding these coins for sale is that the original slab holder was somehow chemically incompatible and created a sort of tarnish on the silver and gold coin surfaces.

I kept mine in a cool dry place in original case for ~5 years before i transferred it to a different capsule, and I'm kicking myself for it now. I'm sure that others' coins may be in even worse shape if still kept in that original slab.
6  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [WTS] 2012 CASASCIUS 10 BTC Pure Silver W/ Gold Plated B on: January 17, 2021, 11:02:00 PM
What's a good price for this one please?

10.2 BTC?

market is thin right now, but anything <10.5 BTC would be dissapointing if its in good condition (It should have like 0.1-0.2btc of altcoins/airdrops if im not mistaken)

A few years ago a silver/gilt coin (1 or 10) had about a 1.5-2BTC premium (the 1oz of silver actually played into pricing!) which has slowly evaporated with time and the change in BTC price.

I'm pretty sure this isn't possible - but can phoenixminer/TREX/etc be configured to run multiple algorithms (ie: ETH on 8GB cards and KAWPOW on 3GB cards)?

Alternatively, can SimpleMining.net run 2 separate processes on the rig?

Im using SimpleMining.net and am not aware of any means to run more than one mining kernel per rig.

One just sold in auction recently https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5292595.0

wow! 1.04BTC amounts to only a ~0.025BTC premium, which is hardly worth the risk of shipping a loaded coin.

I'm still open to offers, for the coin in either loaded or spent state.
10  Economy / Collectibles / [WTS] TitanMint 1BTC "Goldine" on: December 30, 2020, 03:12:34 AM
Looking to find the value of a Titan Mint 1BTC (loaded) "Goldine" coin, with Private Key included (not the 2FA version).

I don't see these selling often, and doubt they will get much premium in comparison to the risks of shipping a loaded coin from canada. I'm open to offers if anyone would do >1.20BTC for the coin or a compelling alternative.

Will post pics in coming day(s). Coin is "mint condition" in original capsule w/ drawstring bag and Titan certificate of auhenticity.
11  Bitcoin / Legal / Re: Canada ONLY: Taxes and law on: December 18, 2020, 10:42:36 PM
I read over this thread and decided to give it a poke since i didn't run across the answer i was looking in to. 

Ok so cheapo miner after a month has generated some value currently still sitting on the slush pool.   

I am aware of Canadian law dealing with capital gains.   That's what i am attempting to avoid in this cycle of what I wish to do with this value.   

Is there a Canadian investment company or bank that will accept that value without converting it to capital gains and reinvest it and eventual filter it out through my TFSA?

What I seem to have run in to is that all the banks and investment company's will not accept any outside crypto.  they Will deal with crypto if you have bought it from them or one of their ETF's that track the value but it seems to be internal only.  I totally understand why. 

so the short version of the question  external mined crypto converted to something Canadian banks/investment companies trust without having to declare capital gains as step.



First part: No - you couldn't use it to "load" your TFSA. However, you *might* be able to transition from BTC to a BTC-tracking equivalent (such as QBTC or GBTC) in taxed trading accounts, without triggering capital gains/losses at that time. I'm not entirely sure if this would be acceptable to the CRA though. (to my understanding, CRA will not allow you to "lock in" capital losses by selling and re-purchasing an asset - though it may work differently for capital gains?)

Second part: "newly minted" cryptos should be considered some of the "cleanest" coins possible, assuming you can demonstrate that you controlled the mining equipment at the time. I suggest keeping records and bills of sale, especially if you have a larger [5KW+] mining operation; and whether it could be construed as a business [>20kW?] and not simply a profitable hobby).
12  Economy / Collectibles / Re: A loaded Ten bitcoin Casascius silver gilt coin in orig. case + some brass 1s on: December 18, 2020, 10:25:38 PM
Iím actually not a great fan of capsulation. I had it done for some actual coins in a collection I have, and I actually regret it. You lose the chance to hold these objects in your hand which is part of the joy of owning them.
Depends whether you are a fan of scuffs and tarnish on your coin Wink

But yes there is something special about the coin outside of its capsule, where you can see the finer details and really see the beauty of the gold plated rim (on the 2013 Gilt)
13  Economy / Collectibles / Re: I have a peeled Lealana 0.1BTC coin - having trouble importing wallet on: December 17, 2020, 04:19:48 AM
for whatever reason Electrum says the wallet has 50 mBTC. Thing is, I looked the address up on a block explorer and it says it has 0.05BTC.


50 mBTC = 0.05 BTC

whats wrong?
14  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [INFO] Casascius Original Price Overview on: November 30, 2020, 02:02:40 AM

2013 - Blank 5BTC Token with plain gold foil sticker - Roll of 45 (no BTC value):
Price: BTC0.90
Description: Allows you to create your own Physical Bitcoins. Includes private keys, or print your own private key inserts with downloadable Bitcoin Address Utility. Does not include a hologram, but you can use the included gold foil sticker or buy your own generic 1" diameter hologram on eBay.


Was this the series of 5BTC unloaded coins with a clear sticker over a green public key?

Yes they are. The roll came with private keys + stickers:


Were the private key stickers pre-attached? I've never attempted to load mine because i wasn't sure whether the keys were sealed like a casascius or open to middleman attack.

Just curious how many Bitcoins people would pay for an unredeemed 1k BTC Casascius Coin.

We had a discussion about this topic in the German local section but need some experts now.  Cheesy


The last unloaded-unredeemed coin sold for 2BTC: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5276323.msg55269755#msg55269755

If loaded, with 2 major forks and gold value accounted for at current value, come to about 26BTC for those.
Not sure what kind of premium the seller would want, but say toss in to make it an even 50BTC... so 1050BTC for a loaded 1000 btc Cas???  maybe... only time will tell.
That's still a $400k premium..but then again, you are looking at a 1 of 2? or 4? coins that were ever loaded..



^thats about right imo.

blazedout419, stunning coin, one of the cleanest I have seen.  You have seen some 70s I believe, can you see any reason this one is not a 70?  I could not from those photos.  Liooks flawless and great eye appeal.

Good luck with your sale!

It is a very clean coin and might be worth sending back in for a chance at 70. I have not seen any MS-70 grades given for a long time though... I wonder if the few that exist are flukes.

I've always wondered how the hologram placement factors into the final score, or if they focus primarily on the metal condition and superficial wear.
Most of the laser-edged holograms are cut off-center or applied at a slight offset/skew on the coin itself (noting the 4 raised notches meant to align it)
