    Where to sell casascius coin?

    Did you post photos and start off with a realistic price? If nothing else, the regular dealers are likely to have put in a bid for it. Someone will be along soon to suggest Ebay. There's no way I'd have to balls to do that myself but they do go for significantly more there

    One of the key questions is whether you deal with USD or EUR. If you do then add a few million dollars extra for licencing and compliance. And even if you remain alt only it's likely similar regulations will eventually descend on you. It's the type of idea that seems cool until you start...

    Beware of "Antminer reseller" on Facebook.

    As long as they are not lying in the sales description, then what has it got to do with you? Nobody is forcing buyers to get them and they'll probably stay unsold for many years. You don't know if the person selling now overpaid for them and is just trying to recoup some money back

    Read and convert UTXO to normal view!

    first of all, a public key (according to the agreed upon standard) must start with 0x04 if it is uncompressed, and 0x02 or 0x03 if it is compressed. yours doesn't start with either. additionally that is not the public key of the private key you posted. the correct public key is...

    Number of connections

    NO, you are making this more complex! If you just specify maxconnections=1 it wouldn't make any sense at all, what I thought was you were adding just 1 connection apart from the minimum 8 connections. If your node connects to only 1 other node connection it doesn't function as a full node at all...
