    I had no idea Bitcoins were being slabbed until I saw this token last night at a Great Collections auction o_O. This token really looks bizarre but the portrait of Athena is very attractive :). The token sold for $15,188.62 :jawdrop:! The current market value of a Bitcoin is $10,886.48 :p.

    Wow.. Interesting.
    Seems like ANACS are the TPG to go to for slabbing of token items as such.

    The cost of slabbing an item like this must be shocking :eek:. All the Bitcoins issued by the Titan Mint come with a certificate of authenticity that you can verify online, so why the need to slab them o_O?

    I guess so. I think they're the only ones who slab Dan Carr tokens?

    Why do people like to eat slabs of bacon? Because they are delicious.. Some people feel that slabbed coins or tokens are yummy! :hungry:

    I like it. It's neat looking. What's the value of one Bitcoin nowadays? Weren't they like way high not so long ago? I suppose I can Google that.

    Edit: OK... wow. :greedy::nailbiting:

    I wanted to buy bitcoin in 2011 when I was maybe 9 or 10 because my uncle said it was a good idea. Well, I didn't. I wish I had.

    Among other things, so you can sell them online like that person did

    You don't need to get these slabbed to sell them online, they come with numbered certificates of authenticity so they can be verified online. The collector who bought this Bitcoin from G.C. paid a huge premium over it's actual value.
