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 felt it's cool and I would want to earn some cash in it  :P

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.

I’m always fascinated by new technologies and researching in the field of cryptocurrencies since past 8 years.
 
I already run a web development company. It were the initial years of bitcoin and it was not as popular as it is right now. I was left spell bound by every news/article published about bitcoin. Started doing research, bought some coins. And now today, with my team, I’m going to launch a Cryptocurrency Exchange platform.

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.

It wasn't as popular today than 3 years ago but have already heard about it.  How i wished I had the same interest as I have now a few years ago when my former office mate told me about it.

I started to be interest in bitcoin after my friends started to do it! they bring me up to date how the business is tokenized. it was easy for them to do this using the example of the playkey project and others. now I am an "adept of this church" too. But it remains a lot of things to understand.
