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?

Hello everybody. I heard about crypto about 4 years ago but to be honest, like many People, i thought IT was silly and useless. Now i started investing some money and reading news and topics about crypto than i could ever imagine. However, there are still some basics which i can not understand. But hopefully i Will overcome that threshold.

A cousin told me about Bitcoin a few years ago, regrettably I didn't pay much attention and dismissed it...

Bitcoin trading would be adding the latest dimension to currency trading with its dynamic force as well as the volatility it would be experiencing as it would be settling into the global market.

I was reading a Wired article on Bitcoin and the Silk Road back in April 2011 or so. After that I started to look into Bitcoin a bit more and thought the concept of a cryptocurrency was pretty awesome.


Before you know it, I was purchasing a mid range GPU to mine a bit...and this was when the price was sub $10 and the difficulty was under 500k. Good times..if only I had kept my coins instead of selling them right away ;)


Hi guys, I kept asking, where can I buy a Bitmain Antminer DR5 (34Th) ?

For buying Bitcoin or any cryptocurrency, you are going to require the crypto exchange where sellers and buyers meet to exchange dollars for coins. There would be hundreds of exchanges out there, but as a beginner, you would be willing to opt for one that balances ease of use with high securityand low fees.

Hi I am new to the forum. My first encounter was the classic 2017 bull run when all the eyes were on it. From that point I took the time to understand it some more.

I’ve always had little side hustles and got caught out by what turned out to be a pyramid scam. At that time I bought half a Bitcoin for £400. Would be worth a lot more now.

A friend of mine was into it and convinced me to look into it. At first I was skeptical, but got more interested once I started reading about it online.

The first and the foremost common type of exchange is the centralized exchange. Popular exchanges that would be falling into this category are Binance, Kraken, as well as Gemini. These exchanges are considered to be the private companies that would be offering platforms to trade cryptocurrency.
