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?

I got into it same way as you did, in fact he has been pestering me about it for long. He would always tell me about these digital currencies and the ones that are trending, but I would always say no.
But now am grateful that he never gave up, as am reaping the benefits of trading cryptocurrencies today!

I heard about it from a graphic designer friend in early 2016 and I overlooked it. Then in 2017 I took a deeper look into it, and after submersing myself into the research on it I realized it was time to invest and diversify my portfolio. Most influential factor the word of mouth and the price action going up. Share with more people via word of mouth and social media posting and let's get this market cap to 10 Trillion dollars and really claim the title Gold 2.0

I learned about bitcoin in 2014 and I was skeptical about it. But still I think it's not too late to invest in it

I got into bitcoin by mining, about 2 month ago.  A little late, but better late than never.

It was the summer of 2010. My friend asked me to look for information about overlay networks.
I examined the source code of FreeNet, I2P, and so on. Finally I came across Bitcoin and I was
surprised that in the context of other systems Bitcoin is very weak and vulnerable. "So what's
special about it?" I thought. Then reading carefully I realized that it is something more than
just the overlay network. It is a cryptocurrency system that perhaps can change the world.
Nice answer  ;)

I've been reading a lot about this, and a good friend of mine made a few comments so now I'm here willing to learn more!

One of my friend was very exciting about Bitcoins. and he was keep talking about fast transactions and decentralized thing. I did not understand all at that time.


But I youtubed about it and watched many videos and then saw many people were excitingly talking about that and so learned all.


And then I decided to buy Bitcoin Miner to earn some money.. and that's how thing got started....
