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?

There was a lot of talk on the news about it and I got curious.

Got to know about it through news. And am glad I did.

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]
