Hiya,

I have bought my first BTC via a UKBT and would like to order a couple/three OTC physicals. I can see that molecular is doing honest deals but everything is in BTCs. Is it bad form to offer local currency ? Otherwise I have to score more BTCs online with cash and then use them to fund the Casascius physicals. Seems a long way round...anyone ? Molecular ?

Sterling? You mean real silver coins? We could do that, I guess.

It's not bad form to offer fiat, but I honestly think it would be more straightforward if you acquired some BTC yourself (I would have to turn around and take your GBP or whatever you're offering right away and exchange for BTC. I'm trying to minimize SEPA as much as possible). You could use localbitcoins.com to find a local dealer and buy some for cash...

There's also substantial chargeback risk for me involved with using sepa. I did some auctions on ebay, but it's not worth it (no profit) because of the 9% ebay takes plus the %3.2 paypal takes (out-fucking-rageous, no?).

Let's stick to bitcoin if possible.

Excellent ! Thx for prompt reply - I'll sort myself out some more BTC tomo and work out how to buy 2 from you over the weekend (dont think I have PM rights yet).

Am I right thinking that Series 1 are all gone ? Everywhere ?

(Have just seen the trade terms - sounds cool)

I was going to say: "it was pure coincidence I saw this thread, why didn't you PM me" Wink

I have 1 left which I will keep. A friend of mine has like 6 but he'll take them to his grave. There are, however, 6000 out there. I think there's even one on bitmit? Prepare to pay BTC 2.0 to BTC 2.5 for one, though.

If you want to order from me, just post to my thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=138522.

You'll have to give me a shipping address, of course, after you've payed. Once you order I can give you an email-address where you can send it.
