I've been looking for a youtube video of someone removing a sticker from a Casascius coin and can't find one.

Furthermore, importing it into mtgox would be cool as well.

Let me know if you find any.

I have imported coins into both Mt Gox and StrongCoin.  I just did not make a video of it.  Do you really need to see my ugly mug peeling off a sticker and then typing at a computer?  It is that simple.  You just peal off the sticker and then type in the number you find under the sticker into either of those two accounts.

I do have a question though:  Is there any other places, besides StrongCoin.com and Mt Gox that import private keys in the mini-private key format?  It seems like others should be doing this by now.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

You can also use Pywallet to import it into your local wallet.

It would be useful to see this video so people can know what a sticker looks like when it has been peeled off, so we can better determine if a coin is still valid or not.

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

Well, considering the kinds of videos like this out there (people showing off a new product as they open the package, etc.), I guess this makes sense.

After I distribute my Casascius bitcoins, I'll see if there are any left for me to make a video peeling one off.

There is a picture in post #1 of this thread showing a removed sticker.

Mike, I suppose it would make sense to also put up a picture showing what they look like after someone tries to put the sticker back on.

I replaced the stickers on mine. Honestly, on a couple, if you don't know about the honeycombing, it's not immediately obvious that they were already redeemed.

Perhaps Mike could add a warning right on the sticker: "Honeycomb pattern visible after opening" or something to that effect.

I made a pic a while back. It's somewhere in this thread, here it is:

I really like it better than the other site that tracks all the coins!  I hate to be nit picky but the green background on the other site makes it hard to read.

I definitely understand how it's supposed to work, but

It'll be cool to be able to show a video to friends and others rather than have them take my word for it.

If anyone makes a video, I'll send them two physical coins.  One to replace the one they destroy, and one as payment.

The video should:

1) Show the coin, and provide a brief description of what it is.

2) Show verification that the coin is funded via something like block explorer.

3) Show removal of the holographic sticker.

4) Show cashing in the coin via mt-gox or solid coin.

5) Should be narrated in clear understandable English.

If you're interested in trying this, please post your intent here, so we don't have a bunch of people destroying their coins.  I will only pay one bounty.  I'll give you seventy-two hours from posting to complete the task.

Ill make it, but I don't have a good mic. I could use captions though Smiley

EDIT:

I could take pictures with my camera of each step in either make an instruction book type thing or a video with each step, however I don't have a very good microphone or video camera. Please let me know if this is acceptable for the bounty before I destroy my coin.

I would really prefer a narration and real-time video.

If no one else offers in the next few days, I guess a captioned video would be okay, as long as it doesn't have lame generic techno music.

kgo: what are your expectations on delivery date?
I used to work at a campus radio station and could shoot a video with my new smartphone.
Plus I did some pywallet / mtgox key import practice so shooting would be just repeating what I already know.

Is delivery before 31/12 acceptable? (i'd need a week to get a coin from a friend of mine who has some; shooting & editing is 1-2 evenings)

edit: seems I'm out of the competition. 72 hrs is discriminating. (I live "am arsch der welt" <- google translate from german; postal service needs forever to reach me)
