I'm poor and currently own One Casascius Bitcoin and Fifty Five Dash. Advice one what I should be doing with it?
A long time ago a friend of mine introduced me to Bitcoin and I bought 6 of them for $50 a piece. When the price doubled I sold half and got my original investment out. Since then I've traded a little and lost some but ended up owning 1 physical Casascius Bitcoin and 55 DASH. I've held on to this amount for years now. I had some money saved up and quit my dead end job to finish studying for the CCNA exam and am now left wondering what to do with it. I currently have enough saved to live on for the next 6 months but I cant decide what to do with these coins? Any advice? I could sell them all, 15K each week till they were gone. I could sell all but 20%. I could sell all the DASH and keep the physical Bitcoin, which is hard to sell. I can't decide what to do. Each time I've sold a little I end up regretting it, but holding on to them makes me worry. That in six months they may no little value when I need them too. Of course, I should have the CCNA done and a new job by then. Any advice is appreciated.
I have a 2012 loaded 1btc casascius coin (not redeemed) and am looking to sell it. I know it has more value if I sell it as a coin with the btc still on it as opposed to just loading the btc to a wallet and selling it that way. Any guidance on how to do this?
I need some advice for selling my Casascius bitcoin.
Hey all, I'm sorry if this is not the right place to ask for help, but a friend of mine suggested I ask here first. I have a year 2012 Casascius Physical Bitcoin loaded with 10 bitcoins which I'm trying to sell. This is 1 of the 150 that were circulated. This is a fully loaded, uncirculated Bitcoin that I got from the creator of the Casascius Bitcoins. The tamper-proof hologram is in tact: this coin has NOT been cashed-in or traded. Is there a way in which I can sell this without too much hassle? Could someone point me in the right direction or give me some tips? Thank you in advance!! Edit: Pictures of the coin: here and here Edit edit: I didn't expect this to be so popular! I will get back to everyone's PMs as soon as I can...
hello, I have an active 2011 casascius bitcoin. It is the first series with the "casacius" spelling error in the hologram. I discovered recently that this coin has sold for as much as $10,000 on ebay and even saw one listed for $100,000 today. I contacted a coin broker, but said they did not know enough about bitcoin to help me and knew of no one to refer me to. I am now wondering about a couple of things: *Do I need to have the coin graded and encapsulated? If so do you have recommendations of where to do this? *I have been storing it in a waterproof pelican case for the last few years, but initially it just sat in a drawer. how much would the condition affect the value? I don't know anything about coins, but I would assume that it is not "mint", even though it looks good to me. I've included a picture for some frame of reference. *Where would be the best place to sell something like this for USD? I have not used ebay before and am hesitant to have this be the first thing I sell. I'm sorry if this is similar to questions that have been asked before. I really don't even know exactly what to ask about, I am just looking for any advice on what to do with something that seems to be very valuable at the moment. Thanks for your help, if there is a better place to post about this please let me know. http://imgur.com/a/ISQef
Hello. I am having an internal debate by myself. I have a couple of Casascius 2012 1btc coins. I am in the UK and tried getting it graded with CGS (Coin Grading Services) but they are a bunch of jokers and despite paying for expedited 15 day service, held the coins for 2 months and I told them to forget it and just send them back. I have looked at anacs but am concerned with sending them half way round the world, anacs seem to only value physically cryptocurrency to $100 and the insurance wouldn't cover the value if it gets lost. I am also concerned that US customs may seize it or whatever. Don't want to sell it on ebay for fear of chargeback and am unsure how to convince any potential buyer that it has not been tampered with. all in all it alludes to the temptation of redeeming them, but before I do so I thought I'd throw it out there and see if anyone had any bright ideas? Would I be permitted to run a competition on btc? What do you all reckon?
Anyone wanted to buy a Casascius Bitcoin but was afraid to?
so i've been wanting one of these for a while and the thing holding me back is that it is known that the hologram can be removed and reapplied with the average person not being able to tell it was tampered with. Does this idea bother anyone else? A malicious seller could sell a fully "loaded" coin and have done what these hackers did. You check the casascius checker sites and it's unredeemed but unknowingly the seller already has the private key waiting to sweep it after you pay a premium https://99bitcoins.com/defcon-hacking-conference-casascius-physical-bitcoins-get-cracked/
