MicroSoul – Lucky coin

My latest purchase is a funny little coin from MicroSoul, which is a company owned by gravitate.

This coin is a Lucky coin and in every round someone will win 1 Bitcoin! Thing is, you don’t know if you hit it until you peel off the hologram and import the private key, which will destroy the coin as a whole. Decision, decisions….

UPDATE (12-03-2016): My coin is, sadly, not a winner. Coin number #4.4 (owned by Operatr) has won as stated in this post.

For more information about this, see the official Lucky coin thread on Bitcointalk.

Casascius – Aluminium Coins

Casascius - Aluminium Coins

Well, my second Physical Cryptocurrency items were a few Aluminium coins made by the famous Casascius.

I got these at the European Bitcoin Convention in 2013 (organized by Moe Levin) , which were given away for free by HardBTC (sadly their stock is quite disappointing right now). They also supplied me with a lot of Bitcoin related pins.

Pictures will be added soonTM!

Bitcoin Specie – Whitepaper 5th Anniversary

This coin is the first coin I really fell in love with. It’s a special edition Bitcoin Specie, specially stamped to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the Satoshi Whitepaper.

I bought them from NewLiberty (JVP on Twitter) during the European Bitcoin Convention. This person created the “New Liberty Dollar” and is a very friendly fellow with an unique view on the world. If you ever have the chance to talk to him, please do so!

Bit-Card Paper Wallet

Bit-Card logo

This is the first purchase I ever made that can be described as Physical Cryptocurrency and is considered a Paper Wallet.
For more information about Paper Wallets checkout this article in the Bitcoin Wiki!

This item was made by a Germany company that still has a live website, but it doesn’t seem to be active anymore, which is a shame.

Pictures will be added soonTM!
