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?

For me, while searching some hot stuffs to watch in youtube i came to know about bitcoin and how it is considered as currency and can work just like liberty reserve but in more secure way as well as decentralized. As i used to do few transactions in liberty i quickely checked how bitcoin works, and at first it was quite difficult for me to even figure out how to open account and how to use those long addresses.

A lot of people that I didn't want to know me had to pay me for various pieces of code... so I told them to pay me in Bitcoin (after just having found out about it). In the next years, I took over 100 payments with Bitcoin, sadly selling for USD every time. Obviously, I wish I had kept a bit... but in those times the huge majority didn't see the long term potential in the coin getting a lot more valuable. It was like USD for us... you don't expect USD to go up in value, do you?

It was around 2011 when I was in college and started hearing talk around campus on the use of Bitcoin on the black web via Tor to purchase things anonymously. After I fully understood what Bitcoin actually was, I fell down the rabbit hole and became  hooked on researching it

I was dating a guy who was really into cryptocurrency, guys out of the picture but BITCOIN IS FOREVER. I love the crypto community and have recently started a page dedicated to Bitcoin songs & Bitcoin rap - Weird Al style. This is what I've been doing instead of FUD in the bear run...

I was reading a Wired article on Bitcoin and the Silk Road back in April 2011 or so. After that I started to look into Bitcoin a bit more and thought the concept of a cryptocurrency was pretty awesome.

It was December 2017 when I saw the price of cryptocurrencies going to the moon.At that time I was watching the ripple a lot.From that moment on I realized that blockchain technology is the future.And today i am bullish on bitcoin and cryptocurrencies

I heard about bitcoin from a friend. I have googled and found a plenty of info. At first I was sceptical, but I recently sold the ones I generated over a year ago, which turned the scepticism into takeaways :D

I remember this day, it was 2017. I was working on Marketing company and one day we have Ico promotion offer, it's changed my life.
And from this time I am working only for cryptocurrency.

I have long been in the world of cryptocurrency and trade, but for quite a long time I did not earn by investment. I started investing my money only when I was confident in my knowledge
