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 about the bitcoin to my fellows and I have googled to have more information on this subject. At first, I was sceptical in comparison with this virtual currency. Having accomplished my first investment in the bitcoin on the minedecrypto platform, which was very advantageous to me, I decided to diversify my investments on some atlcoins 1 year ago. To this day, I do not complain 8) .

I've wanted to try cloud mining for a long time, but I've come across opinions that it's not profitable or safe more than once, so what you say, is it true? Also if you know, could you recommend a mining company.

I was purchasing something through the web, and that’s how I got to research it and learn about it! xD

In 2013 I was winding down a career in finance and looked at the guy next to me on our trading desk and said - we need to buy some of this bitcoin and put it in a drawer somewhere.  I lacked the guts or intellectual firepower to truly vet the idea, so I bought a tiny amount and made a little bit of money.

I traded BTC again in 2017, with better results but again not enough for it to change my life. I remained fascinated by the space however.

No longer in finance, I have been spending my days selling power services to cannabis cultivators. Now I am looking for miners - their energy consumption dwarfs any other business outside of data centers perhaps. I joined the forum to educate myself as an investor and in addition to help find energy solutions for miners!

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... ;)

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

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.
