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?

Getting involved in bitcoin is something that happens not at one time or because of one action. Instead, I think that involvement in bitcoin is something that happens not at one time or because of one action. Instead, I think that the involvement in bitcoin is something that is a gradual process. I think for most people it begins because they see that the current centralised banking systems aren't working and may have had personal experiences with these systems which made them want to look elsewhere for ways of storing their money and landed on bitcoin - after all the 2008 crash was a huge factor in the creation if bitcoin at all. For others, they may be looking for an investment opportunity and that bitcoin obviously being one of the best-performing assets there is and so also a great option for this too. As such, I think to answer when it happened is tough but the fact of the matter is gradually everyone will slowly drift towards it. This, I believe, is an inevitability.

It all started in December 2014 and I actually had zero clue what bitcoin was, although I had heard the term before. I was on the crapper at work and picked up a bitcoin magazine that someone had left behind. After reading a few articles, the technology had my attention and I decided to research the subject a bit more when I got home that day. By that evening, I was signed up for a Coinbase account and starting the verification process. No more than a week later I had dropped $10,700 and acquired almost 36 coins. Admittedly, I still had no idea what the heck I was getting into but it seemed promising enough to get me to pull the trigger on such a risky investment; my only investment…ever.
[/size]My wife thought I was an idiot and my co-workers thought I had made a huge mistake. After about 4 months, my coins dropped about 50% of their original value and I too started thinking I had made a bonehead move. However, I was in it for the long run and left the coins alone. Needless to say, I have turned $10,700 into $104,000 in just 2.5 years. My wife is now singing a different tune and I occasionally get random text messages from my old co-workers when they see what bitcoin has been doing these past 12 months. It's certainly been huge risk, huge reward.[/color]

For all those who are new to the world of cryptocurrency need to do some prior research regarding cryptocurrency and the technologies powering them. Before jumping into crypto trading, it is necessary first to understand the fundamentals of cryptocurrency. Once you are done with the basics now comes the part of selecting an exchange where you are going to trade. Don't choose just any random exchange rather do some background check for the exchanges and then finalize which exchange fits your requirements. Trade99 is one of the best choice. But before you browse that website you need to read all the Traders' review at Trade99 Review at trade99review.com
Stay tuned with Trade99 and get the detailed information regarding Trade99's services through traders' feedback stories, which they experienced during their trading.

I got a tip from a friend to try out this Crypto-robot he kept talking about from some swedish company that he claimed almost doubled his investment in a few month time without him doing anything himself but highering or lowering the risk factor, i didn't really trust him since i didn't understand it until one day he invited me and 8 other friends to a vaccation in dubai which he payed for himself... after that i realised i have to get in on this and now i've been working from thebitcoincode.nu as a full time job for half a year and made more money only this year than i did all of last year!

Anyone have any other innovative ways to make money from bitcoin? please send me a mail im looking for ways to widen my income source and risks!
