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?

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 [censored] 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]

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!

A very interesting question lol. It was back in 2016 when i googled how to earn money online.


There came a post that talked about faucet. It says if you want easy money go for faucets so I started claiming for faucets and came to know Bitcoin.
After two months I came to know Litecoin and then it goes on. :)


Although as always, I still wish I had my first Bitcoin back in 2010. Cheers.

One year ago, a friend of mine told me how money he has got on it, and it opened eyes. I was pretty amazed by the profit.

I first knew about bitcoin in 2010. I read about it in a journal and i was really interested in buying $1000 worth of BTC. I spoke to a friend about and she convinced me not to buy it because she lost her life savings in Liberty Reserve. Till date that is one of the biggest mistake i ever made. I should be super rich by now. Lol

That's a very good question. I can't remember how started my interest with BTC. I just remember that someone talked about the cost of the coin was at that moment like $4000 and since there I started to search and do some invest from time to time on my free time.
