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 was the summer of 2010. My friend asked me to look for information about overlay networks.
I examined the source code of FreeNet, I2P, and so on. Finally I came across Bitcoin and I was
surprised that in the context of other systems Bitcoin is very weak and vulnerable. "So what's
special about it?" I thought. Then reading carefully I realized that it is something more than
just the overlay network. It is a cryptocurrency system that perhaps can change the world.


A friend of mine got me into it but now I spend more time trading

On 3 January 2009, the bitcoin network came into existence with Satoshi Nakamoto mining the genesis block of bitcoin (block number 0), which had a reward of 50 bitcoins. Embedded in the [censored] of this block was the text: ... In the early days, Nakamoto is estimated to have mined 1 million bitcoins.

I was quite fortunate.
In 2012, I purchased $100 worth of Bitcoin with the idea of using it to purchase something on the darknet markets. At the time, Bitcoin was $11/coin.
As the value of the assets increased, I decided to keep them. In 2014, I liquidated half of my BTC holdings and invested in a Vanguard index fund, as BTC was my first investment and I thought it was prudent to diversify.
The other half of those initial coins, which are now worth over $10,000, is still in my possession. I'm just holding on to them to see what happens because there's no way for me to lose at this point.
To the moon and back!
