How did you get into bitcoin?
« on: February 04, 2012, 11:05:08 AM »
I was asking myself how did I get into bitcoin and I took a little to remember.
The very beginning was when I was about to buy a graphic card... I was googling it.

And you?

Well, I also haven't mined it. I've been interested in cryptocurrencies and the ways to earn them for a while now.

I got into it because people started asking for it and I finally need to have it. I am now not looking at Yourfreeworld, as it helped me get into the Crypto world. They have brilliant setup with allowing us to take the script of our liking.

I love their Initial Offering Coin Script; it allows one to get things working and start our own ICO smoothly. With huge list of features, it really makes everything work so very nicely in every way.

When Bitcoin exploded here a couple of weeks ago I started to do my research to learn more about how this all works. I decided to jump in on this as there seem to be lots of opportunities to make a great profit.

So far I've invested in BTC and ETH and two ICO's that sounds promising. Not a lot, just dipping my toes to learn how everything works and to avoid makes big mistakes.

Could mining seems to be another great way to make a good income, however, lot's of warnings out there from people with bad experiences with scams, so be aware, do your research!

I have selected two mining companies, both look very solid and legit. I have two contracts which are very profitable with daily payoff around 1% - depending on the type of contract, yearly or open-ended(I have both).

Happy to share my experiences if you message me.

Long story short: whole night i was thinking about financial problems, with a great pessimism member those moments, when i was a child. At that time, I’ve had everything i want. However, on the next day my friend send me a link: bit.ly/2llODTG. It was hasflare promo action. In addition, as i know, it still exists. So now i am not reach, but i can afford the rent and clothes, i want, not i "need".
Of course it wasn’t so perfect, but i do like stories, like fairytales. :P

I bought my first one about year and couple months ago, then I mined some (mostly other coins and then sell off), after I've decided it's better to get it directly so I've sold rigs and got more BTC :)

The memory is still very fresh, I still recall my friends voice in my head echoing; "hey you, Bitcoin is the next big thing lets invest". I was a bit skeptical though, but gradually my interest grew and now my whole attention is on digital currencies, especially on the just emerging ones with good potential for growth!

My friend told me about it couple of years ago, and it actually took me some time to believe in bitcoin and actually join this community. I am glad I did!

I bought one Bitcoin in september when it was worth a bit less than 5K. Still hodling it. Of course I should have gotten rid of it before it started to go downhill from 19K, but now it's rising again. To be honest I feel like I should get rid of it and buy smaller crypto's instead (XRP, XEM, MIOTA?) but I guess that takes a lot of research so to not make any stupid moves.

Here is my second video I promised. This one's about how much money of Your portfolio should You invest if You are willing to invest in crypto's (no links, no sales pitches - made for fun and because I am developing my animation video making skills):
