  1. There are ongoing network issues with bitcoin currently leading to long confirmation times unless you pay a slightly higher transaction fee enabling a quicker confirmation time. You can also try this site to speed things up : https://www.viabtc.com/tools/txaccelerator/ It is very busy so you need to try on the hour to catch it.
  2. Gold would have been nice but the silver has a crazy price increase too.
  3. 2014 5oz proof Britannia.
  4. Dumped my whole stack right after the Brexit vote during the price spike and paid my mortgage off. Now buying back in (purely sovs this time around). The interest payments saved alone pays for a sov a month
  5. Direct gold printing Is already available. It uses a laser to melt powdered gold building up tiny layers as it goes. There are a few vids of it in action on YouTube.
  6. Makes me think me think where this technology is going in the future. Pair a high quality 3d scanner with direct 3D gold printing and those old, low mintage high premium coins could be easily replicated
  7. Just an update, here it is in the flesh : (Hologram and private key to be added)
  8. First thing I have never used CAD previously and have zero artistic skills I used a free online CAD program below to design my coin, a physcial crypto coin for a next gen cryptocurrency called Komodo. https://www.tinkercad.com/ Using another company called Shapeways to print the coin (they do everything from plastic, ceramics, metals, precious metals such as gold, platinum and silver. https://www.shapeways.com/ Really happy how it turned out, a high relief coin attempt using the KMD octogon logo with a recess at the rear to fit a hologram to cover a private key. First version I ordered is polished brass plated in rhodium then in 18k Gold and will be delivered in about 10 days. If it turns out nice I will look to get some solid silver, gold and platinum versions created for the Komodo community. All in with shipping it cost 113 euros delivered, for a 1 off custom coin that is amazingly cheap How they make the gold versions : " Gold Overview See full material information for Gold here. Look and Feel All Gold products go through extensive hand-polishing to give them a smooth, shiny finish. 14k Gold has a subtle, warm coloring, while 18k Gold is brighter and more vibrant. 14k Rose Gold has a pinkish tint, and 14k White Gold looks like silver with a hint of gold. 14k Gold consists of 58% Gold, 31% Copper, 10% Silver, and 1% Zinc. 14k Rose Gold consists of 58% Gold, 40% Copper, 1% Silver, and 1% Zinc. 14k White Gold consists of 58% Gold, 24% Copper, 9% Zinc, and 9% Nickel. 18k Gold consists of 75% Gold, 10% Copper, and 15% Silver. When we hand-polish your Gold model, some material will inherently be worn off. Please note that the volume of your finished product may be up to 10% less than the original model due to shrinkage and polishing loss. How it's 3D printed Gold models are 3D printed using a complex five-step process. First, the model is printed in wax using a specialized high-resolution 3D printer. It is then put in a container where liquid plaster is poured in around it. When the plaster sets, the wax is melted out in a furnace, and the remaining plaster becomes the mold. Molten Gold is poured into this mold and set to harden. The plaster is broken away, revealing your new product. The product is then carefully cleaned and hand-polished to give it the trademark Gold luster. Please be aware that polishing can wear down or fill in very fine details and edges. Polishing also removes a bit of material from your product in order to smooth it out, so the exact volume may be slightly smaller than that of your digital model."
  9. I agree with pampfan, if your in the US go for eagles.

  13. Just grabbed another 12 sovs from Hatton Gardens. 2 1/2 tubes full. 17 1/2 to go until target
  14. Love Aprillia 2 strokes, my first bike was almost an RS250 but a years free fully comp insurance won the argument for the thundercat.
  15. Same here, I did a direct access course then bought a thundercat followed by a zx7-r ninja. Great fun but all car drivers are out to kill you.
