Hello, today I'm selling the unique bitbill metal bank card prototypes, along with a pair of bitbill metal bank cards that have an error. Firstly, let me introduce myself. I'm noitev, and back in mid 2011, I contacted llama about his physical bitcoins he was making called bitbills. I thought they were such a cool idea and I bought a stack of them.

I then asked llama (the creator) if we could meet and talk bitcoin and afterwards, I started making bitbills for him. With my bitcoin earnings I bought an engraver to make durable metal bitcoin wallets and llama was open to the idea. I probably made under 20 of them gave them all to llama to sell. Not many sold if I recall and bitbills was no more by the end of 2011. I still meet up with him every so often and after a suggestion, I asked if he had an metal bitbills left. After getting coffee with him, he returned what he found to me, which, as I recognize them are.
- A pair of metal bitbills with an error (the payee card is missing an x)
- The original prototype with 2 qr codes on the front and poorly engraved words
- A second prototype with outlined letters and an engraved qr code (as opposed to the final design where the engraving was inverted for the QR codes.)




I'm starting this auction at 1 Bitcoin for the entire set of 4
Increments may be done by the cent (e.g. 1.01, 1.32, etc.) A pair originally sold for 3 Bitcoins (https://web.archive.org/web/20111107010054/http://bitbills.com:80/order-form) This auction shall end 7 days after this post and will will continue past that by 2 hours from the last bid if necessary (no sniping!)


After several offers, I'll simply list it for 5 bitcoins, but feel free to offer whatever you'd like.

Feel free to message me with any questions. Thanks!


P.S. I sold all my original bitbills a long time ago, so I can't sell them to you. Sorry!

Well, I can write up a certificate of authenticity. I personally made them in 2011 with llama and I can get him to sign it as well if needed.

   I contacted Noitev a few months back with regards to Bitbills. He has been digging ever since looking to see if he had any left.

   So these came to light because of that search.

   I understand the concern of reproducing these. They can be easily made.

   However I think they are the real deal. Noitov has also been on the original Bitbills thread going way back to 2011. Thats how I found him.

   Also he is the maker of these metal Bibills

   https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=23558.msg295663#msg295663

   That is proof enough for me.

   I wanted to buy these outright when he reached out to me last night before he posted them here but he decided to auction.

   That being said...I have been pmd by several people on here about these beauties and have decided to let them go to others as I have enough of my own.

   So best of luck to all. Cheers

Got to pick up these beauties in person and also meet the Metal Bitbills maker.

I can confirm these are the real deal compared to the ones I already have in my collection.

Noitev thanks again for the memorable experience. Cheers! Wink
