A listing on July 1 shows, A physical bitcoin is selling on eBay for $99,000. The seller claims the “collector’s must have” is a Casascius brass token that was created in 2011.
Payment can be made in crypto or cash or for real estate. The seller says they made the purchase back in 2012 and have kept it in their safe since then, adding: “Only a few hundred remains in the ENTIRE world.”
The private key for the bitcoin is embedded inside the physical coin on a card protected by a tamper-evident hologram.
The main question remains “What can you do with this physical Bitcoin?”
Back in March, the owner of a startup that never launched its initial coin offering attempted to sell the project on the e-commerce website for $60,000.
