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?

in 2015, in some project, I earned 1.5 bitcoins. I sold it about a year later, and in December 2017 I held on to my head, was shocked by the price :D

Back in 2010 I was looking for the next big thing on the net and stumbled in to it. I bought about 1k BTC, but they were lost in MtGox exchange.

If we talk about cryptocurrencies, I was called to work related to the blockchain, mostly there was Ether.
I met bitcoin because I like to play crypto slots on weekends :D

One of my friends was into cryptos and he used to constantly check bitcoin prices. I was pretty intrigued and asked him what it was. He told me about it and did some study about it. I took a good time reading about it and finally invested in it. i’m happy i got into it.

More or less 10 years ago, one of my friend's husband mines BTC for a living. We don't know that it will become profitable so I and another friend of mine ignored it. I got influenced again last 2016 to 2017 where BTC got its ATH at $19K per 1BTC. Since I got busy after that I lie'd low in the crypto world last year. I'm getting back now and probably need to catch up with everything I missed.

That's very unfortunate. You could have sold it in the year 2017 where BTC was valued at $19K.

I heard how friends were discussing, it was in 2015.  The guys talked about the farm and I did not understand what was going on.  But thanks to the Internet and youtube, everything became clear, but like most, there was no certainty that you could make money on it.

I was told about it by my friend, it was in 2014, then I began to watch the news on the Internet, so I learned more about it in detail

I traded on forex and cryptocurrencies appeared in the list of available tools. I'm looking at bitcoin for now. Perhaps this is not bad for speculation.
