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?

I recently got in to Bitcoin because of a friend. They were gaming with it. I decided to read up on it and decided to buy some for myself, starting out with mBTC. Still keeping up with trends and stuff, but just this September I started playing with it as well.

I was always interested in technology. The first time I've heard of crypto was in 2013 I Guess. Unfortunatelly I had a little brake from crypto as I lost all my funds due to MtGox hack...

Hi,

I am a new investor diversifying out of my main family funds. I have acquired just under 15 BTC and  90 ETH. That probably makes me a tiny player on the forum. Any advice on storage much appreciated - currently on an exchange where I bought using OTC desk....

In UK. Background in investment management. Aged 63.

A few years ago I started working for a company that makes forecasts about lots of different assets. I was hired for PR but I soon became interested in the background of it all, and started learning about trading and investing. Primarily I was always interested in the forex market, but as I learned more and more about blockchain and cryptos, I became more and more interested. Before then, I had only a very vague understanding about what bitcoin was.
