And only 10-15 exist in the whole wide world. Imagine.

Unless the winner getīs a better provenience than given in the description, isnīt the price fairly high ? Didnīt even make minimum price. Weird.

Bitcoins, or, as the seller is in Norway, woodmoney.
https://ostfoldmuseene.no/?s=husmann...rchblogs=1%2C3

In danish it would be træpenge, a derogatory word for coins of no value.

I think that before the internet, bitcoins would be called tokens. Somebody, who is not a national or just a major bank, issue tokens for some limited payment cirquit. Like bus fare tokens. As long as the bus runs, your tokens has a value.
What I donīt get, is why anyone would pay real money to get bitcoins. Turn off the power and your value is gone. Turn off the bitcoin servers, and everyoneīs "value" is gone. The price for bitcoins is erratic.
Itīs like the russian ponzi scheme where you could buy a private companyīs money for your rubles. Guaranteed to increase in value. Company went bankrupt and the "money" can still be found on ebay. Complete with the portrait of the CEO Mavrodi of the company. Check out: Mavrodi money.
As far as I know, bitcoin may be the next Ponzi scheme, only so much bigger than any other ever seen.

This guy doesn't seem too impressed either;

JPMorgan Chase chief executive Jamie Dimon doubled down on his past criticisms of bitcoin today, declaring it a "fraud" and saying he would fire any trader known to be trading the cryptocurrency.

I have learned, I have missed a point about bitcoin. There are no servers that can be turned off. This is about binoculars, so I wonīt go into what other problems bitcoin has. I still agree with Jamie Dimon on them, though.
