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 heard in media about first transaction made by BTC - a pizza bought for 10k coins.

Actually my memory is bad and I cant really tell when i heard or read the first time about bitcoin. But actually it is now that I am so interested in it and since some weeks I am into it like a child with a new gift :) Still kind of a newbie. Maybe I am late to start but maybe not....lets see how this "advanture" will continue... ;)
Many alternative bitcoin projects are just starting to appear, you still have time

Bought some just for fun a few years ago. You know, experimenting and stuff. Even wasted a few of them, which would make me kind of sad if i thought too long and hard about it.
May you live in interesting times

A lot of people are getting addicted to investing in bitcoin nowadays without knowing exactly what it is and how to invest in it. Visit adconity.com to know about it and about its advertising concerns.

I was at an Affiliate Marketing conference where a Canadian lawyer was giving a talk about marketing gaming in unregulated markets back in 2012. At the end of the talk, he mentioned he was part of a fledgling Bitcoin movement in Toronto and explained what the blockchain was and how Bitcoin worked. I was spellbound and asked him for his contact info after the talk. We met up on a subsequent visit to Toronto and he introduced me to Crypto Jedis that I still consult to this day for guidance and information.

Started to work with it right as it hit mainstream. After that, I just kept learning more and more on the job, and now I currently work for a company that deals with every advertising aspect of cryptocurrencies

The answer to that question coincides with my discovery of a social media platform called Steemit. It's basically a site that pays you for creating original content in the form of posts. When I discovered it almost a year ago, I thought the idea was revolutionary, although from what I saw in it's infancy is that it was difficult to make a decent amount of money on it. So the Steem and Steem Dollars tokens that I earned through creating posts was my introduction into the world of cryptocurrencies. Soon after when I learned how to cash out came my introduction to Bitcoin (seeing as how that token is/was the main exchange for Steem and Steem Dollars).

It's been a fun ride on that platform, I must say, and we're still using it to this very day.

A friend actually introduced me to bitcoin but was a little doubtful about it so had to research and read lots of online articles and videos.  I got interested about it plus was already into stocks and other investments, so here i am still learning.

Been interested about bitcoin since last year when I heard it from my brother in law who's kinda into stock markets and investments.  Did some research and watched a lot of videos documenting its journey into where it is today and from there my interest grew.
