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 was digging on the net like every weekend and from one site to another site, from one article to another I ended up on CoinDeal, which is cryptocurrency exchange platform, then I wanted to check out what it's all about, what is the most popular cryptocurrency, so first I read about BTC then FTO...
Cheers!

I was having dinner with a family friend in Santa Clara.
I was not into cryptocurrency at all at the time.
He told me about Bitcoin and how it will be the currency of the future.
I had no idea what he was talking about.
This was about 6 years ago. I was still in college.
Now I work in the IT industry.


Time sure flies.

When I attended a seminar where my friend forced me to attend one as he was really interested in bitcoins, and I was like alien to him and bitcoin as well. But the seminar was really impressive where I also get some quality time to spent with the speaker and that few minutes inspired me to start my career in bitcoin, not I have few investments in bitcoins and hope to do more with the help good minds here.

three months ago, I didn't know about Bitcoin. Until I changed my job, now I work for a quantitative platform in China, FMZ Quant :www.fmz.com, a platform for writing and backtesting trading strategy, especially crypto trsding. So I start to know everything about crypto and Bitcoin. As a newbie, I'd like to make some friends here, someone who r interested in crypto trading strategy, I'd like to share mine. :)

I learned about cryptocurrencies, bitcoins a few years ago from MMORPG games. Since then, I have been reading something from time to time, and a few months ago I registered for CoinDeal and regularly started investing and trading. And every time they bring a new cryptocurrency that will win the vote, I read about it, and I'm looking for an opinion whether it is worth the investment and better to let go.

I can't remember exactly when I heard about Bitcoin for the 1st time. That was a long long time ago. I knew about it all these whiles, but not until the super run in 2017 I am feeling so regretful why I couldn't bother with it earlier. So consider me new as I am trying my best to find a way to invest in cryptocurrencies. Starting with faucets now since I am poor XD

Bitcoin and discussions about it started to appear constantly in 2017 in my area. I found it pretty interesting and the curiosity has risen through time. I'm also fond of taking risk so... that's when I decided to invest some of my saving in cryptocurrency. (:

It was my first year in college and we had to do a presentation about an economic-related topic. Our group didn't want to talk about something so safe and traditional then, like inflation or tax. So one of my friend came up with bitcoin (and I had no idea how she knew about it). And so, we were doing research about bitcoin. The day of presentation, it was so successful that we had never expected it to be. Our professor loves the topic (well, mostly because it was new for her too) and gave us the highest score in class. And guess what, all the following years, many other group chose to talk about bitcoin for their presentation too (though I don't know about there score).
I didn't do anything bitcoin for the rest of my college years, and I didn't think that I would do anything bitcoin-related. Guess what? I'm working on a project offering a tool to sell crypto easily now. That's my story with bitcoin. Bitcoin is truly full of surprises for me, honestly.
If you want to know what I'm working on, please check [EDITED] and give me some feedbacks. I'd really appreciate that. Thank you.

I was guest at ReaktorX Demo Night in Warsaw and there I heard about decentralized storage cloud Nebula Network. It has a stable cryptocurrency thanks to solid backing in form of cloud's resources. Maybe you want to read about it. It's really interesting [EDITED]

Actually, a friend itroduce bitcoin to me way back 2016 but Im not interested at all because Im afraid to be a victim of scams. But! Last year it really got my attention when my friends never stop to give me some good feedback about it. So I did my own research and theres a project really caught my attention it was Myshield the world’s dirst Anti-Scam platform that will help every crypto enthusiast to fight against scams. So that’s the perfect project and the perfect time to join.
