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!

My friends were talking about it more and more and I kept asking them about experiences. They recommended me this forum btw.

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. (:
