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?

How did I get into Bitcoin.
At first I read about it on the press.
I started to be interested in it while reading in a gold bugs forum

I've known what bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are for a while, it's hard topic to miss when you are living in modern world to be honest. But I've decided to join the community about a week ago, when my friend send me an info that cryptocurrency exchange he is trading on, CoinDeal is going to be available in the US and they are making a giveaway for their users. So i though - why not try? It's a 100 free tokens, so i can do what i want with them and won't regret it.

Mining it self is the original source of earning bitcoins. Cloud mining are platforms that bridge the gap between purchasing expensive mining hardware and investing. With as little as $100 you can invest in cloud mining.

Yeah there is a problem with fraudsters, that’s why you need to make inquiries and seek expert opinion on where to invest your funds. if you are looking for a reliable platform, The best cloud mining platform I have encountered and I can vouch for it reliability is Hashnow ASIC & FPGA Cloud Mining . They are unique and boast of outstanding features like:

 From my experience their profits are the best and no difficulty withdrawing your profits. Do well to check it out and invest.

A very long time ago my friend told me about Bitcoins. Bitcoin cost about 200 dollars in that time. And he mined a lot of coins very simply. Lucker! =)
And now, if you don't know about cryptocurrencies - feel yourself a dinosaur. So now I'm here.

I got into bitcoin because i saw a weird guy at the grocery store buying broccoli and i asked him if he was vegan ( he was not )
the guy was a recovering addict that was a fellow OIF veteran and when he told me this info, we became fast friends
he gave me a huge talk about bitcoin and cyber punk and cash being passe... and i got in
ended up working for numerous crypto companies for a short while until i started school again, where i still rant at everyone to ditch the dollar and get into crypto.
My favorite Trading Tool :
Gunbot - the Automated Cryptocurrency Trading Bot
