Speaking of raffles... I would not mind hosting it with minerjones escrowing the funds. I could probably make it work, get some news station in on it and people will come.. Raffleceptions have proven to work.

Raffles aside, great bar OP, I'm surprised you had the stomach to hold on to this for so long! Kudos to you.

I am speechless as it's such a nice bar and you've held it for so long. Props.

The raffle inceptions would be real.

If i had to assign a value, it would be 100BTC+100BCH+100BTG+100BTP+... = ~118 BTC

unpeeled 'storage' bars commonly go for about 1BTC, and i think peeled 100BTC bar would fetch a similar price.

so anything <119BTC is a pointless offer, and 125BTC seems like a fair asking price

Well said you tasty ice cream treat!

125 btc seems like a reasonable price for both buyer and seller.

Fork coins as of right now are worth ~22.41 BTC, if we ignore market depth. A bit higher than what you stated.

are they? I saw BCH as ~0.17/BTC (which is fairly high compared to a 30day average), and BTCP+BTG totalled about 0.01/BTC.  If im missing out on another 5% gains let me in on the secret

in fact, https://btcdiv.com/ seems to back this up - if you search a casascius coin (any year is pre-forks), the total is ~1.1766

My bad, 22.41BTC was a bit high. You're missing BCX though, which forked 1000:1.

16.235BTC from BCH
2.26BTC from BCX
0.68BTC from BTG
0.288BTC from BTCP


~19BTC plus some misc fork coins that are worth a bit less.

Yes, it is still available but I am asking 125 BTC. I have no reason to sell it for less than I can get by peeling it. I'll send you a PM.

Although i would love to see the piece raffled i dont there there is anyway we can pull off a $1M raffle and raise the requisite funds to pull it off.  The logistics might not be worth it either.  John for the amount of trouble i would just peel it.  Safest way for you with little amount of trouble.  At your asking price you sacrifice 6btc but eliminate all the stress, well worth it

Could probably lease it out to the British museum or something and be like here's 100BTC loaded on a small sticker on this bar.

As others have pointed out already, kudos to you for holding onto this for so long. As a few others have worked out, and as you have yourself stated, I wouldn't sell this for anything less than 125 BTC. At the level of money we are talking about, its safer just to peel it when bartering over 1 BTC.

Good luck in your sale bud.
