Mouth watering.

Nice collection, I especially like that 'green plastic' BitBill.  Grin


 

Thankyou GP.

What you are looking at are

Two complete redeemed Bitbills sets of 1BTC,5BTC,10BTC and 20 BTC

Two Loaded 1 BTC BitBills

Five Metal Bitbills, two are sets and one is solo

I also placed velvet in the back with plexiglass so I can just turn the frame around and see the other side of the Bitbills.  Wink



Are the metal ones loaded?

holy moly, very nice collection krogo! I'd love to get a redeemed set aswell Shocked

Thankyou bavi!  I have searched the highways and byways of the internet and cryptoworld to acquire these and am still on the prowl.  Cheesy

Wow, priceless comes to mind Smiley

Thanks Dolphriends..... I came up with the idea one day to have someone make this for me but decided to do it on my own.

                                  What better way to appreciate Bitcoin history art than to see if daily instead of buried 6 feet under?  Wink


Hey krog can i come and work in your office  Cool

Thats one fine piece ya got there

You are welcome to stop by anytime Wheelz  Cheesy


Are the metal ones loaded?

  Very good question Killyou.

  BitBills Bank Cards were aluminum cards, engraved with the public and private keys. Two cards come in a set: a 'payee card,' which includes the public key only, both in human-readable Base 58 and QR code formats; and a 'bank card,' which includes the private key in QR, as well as the public and private keys in human-readable Base 58 format.”

    So none of the metal ones came loaded. A person had two cards..one with only the Public key and the other with both the public and private keys on the card.

    The person would carry the one with only the public key and people deposited to that card once they scanned the qr code.

    Then when the time came for a person to withdraw the BTC all he had to do is go home or the bank box and take the card with the private key and sweep BTC from there.

    The green one which is the one in the center has had over 300 BTC go thru it! I bought it from a member of the Bitcoin Foundation. Was lucky to acquire every one of these to be honest as they are the rarest

of the Bitbills. Very very few were sodl. I believe less than 20 were sodl

I needed to update this thread on the amount of Metal Bitbills made.

I met with the maker of the Metal Bitbills and he confirmed that even though 20 or less were probably made, probably less than 15 or 10 were ever sodl.

I was fortunate to also pick up these prototypes and a set of Metal Bitbills .  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5071142.msg47999056#msg47999056

This is a great thread Krogoth! BitBills are one of the coolest Bitcoin collectible. Unfortunately, it's becoming too expensive to own a set. That said, I still have a set to sell. 😀

I decided to run the code that I wrote that checks for intact bitbills. I found that all the bitbills funds were sent from one address originally. So following the blockchain, you can find all the bitbills that were funded from that one address.

Quote
20BTC: 88 (32 intact)
10BTC: 107 (33 intact)
5BTC: 144 (58 intact)
1BTC: 589 (333 intact)

As one expect, a lot of the larger bills have been peeled. So there are now at most only 32 complete sets of bitbills that are intact.

EDIT: Found and fixed a bug in the code that over-counted the number of total 10BTC and 20BTC Bitbills.

Here's the python code in case anyone is interested:

Code:
import urllib
