These are pretty ugly, but I get why the added the warning. Love the quality of the hologram on that second slab...almost looks like a 12 year old applied it.

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and Bither are OK.)

So these ugly cases were the reason for the months of delay? They were definitely NOT worth it.

yeah, not looking very professional. At least the old design was clean. I don't think I'll be sending in Kialara error coins for grading at ANACS. Maybe ICG  Tongue

Unreal.  Ugly as hell.  Not to mention that they practically put a glowing neon sign on these placing doubt in the mind of anyone considering purchasing a physical crypto that the digital value might not actually be on the coin.  

If they gave me a choice, I would have just had them return them raw rather than put them in these monstrosities.  

Thanks ANACS.   Angry

Blazed, maybe you need to start your own grading certification company for physical cryptos. You could add features like a balance check QR code, a warning alert for reports of compromised coins, and a record keeping option for chain of custody.

I did the math on this as as few of us were considering such a venture.  There is simply not enough volume (revenue) to cover operating costs (insurance, facility, admin, etc..)

Edit to add:  new label is horrible and that warning will scare away any new collectors.  The application of the hologram shows how little they care about looking professional.  Fuck ANACS!

If you are thinking in terms of a traditional corporation, yes. However, drop the idea of having a warehouse or store front and only do coin shows with grading and slabbing on site. The insurance would be covered by the promoter of the show. I believe there are ways to do this without requiring the same kind of volume that ANACS needs.

Edit: there are certifications you can get to be an appraiser for insurance purposes. I am not sure what else is really required besides demonstrating competency in consistently grading coins and having nice looking tamper-proof slabs.

It's pretty terrible.  No two ways about it.  Hoping ICG doesn't get the same idea about bastardizing their label with some dumb disclaimer that likely offers them no real legal protection anyway.

Wow Blazed, they just don't care at all do they?  The fact they sent those to someone who I have to think is one of their largest crypto customers sums up their attitude towards us.

FUCK ANACS!

ICG here I come.

Edit to add:  How much for a Titaln 0.1?

Blazed, I forgot to ask. Do you notice any change in grading standards from your end, unrelated to the crappy looking labels and the shitty holos?

FYI - I am @owlcatz on Telegram, and I have NEVER traded there, and never will, so beware any imposters please. Roll Eyes

those do look terrible. if we stop using ANACS this will have been wasted money on their end and it should send a strong message from our community.

has anyone ever received an ANACS graded Cas or similar from someone outside of this forum or is it mainly us sending these in and circulating them?

Those slabs look horrible. It's pretty clear that ANACS could not care less about cryptocoins.

Mine are already on the way back to me and they did not charge my card.  Incompetence or did they give me a freebie on 10+ coins?

I am pretty sure the bulk of ANACS crypto grading business comes from just a handful of people here on this forum.
