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 came across bitcoin for the first time when i noticed many e-currency payment processors were using it for both funding and withdrawals and then i decided to check out what it is all about.

I found a bitcoin tutorial on YouTube two years ago, and have been interested since.

Summer of 2010. I was working for a friend. Bumped into bitcoin. First thought about it was : It was weak and suspicious. And then after 4 years, I AM HERE!

I was invited by a friend to meet an "interesting" person he knew. That person was Matt Scott a local programmer,
physicist and chaos theorist. The conversation went many places. Most of it centered on Fractal Geometry but a fair portion revolved around Matt enlightening us on Bitcoin. I didn't get it but went home and downloaded a mining client and began my self education. That was late 2012. The friend who invited me was Bryan Hollignshead my business partner and co-founder of COINPAY .xyz (app to Pay Bills with Bitcoin).




That conversation should have made me a boat load of cash but it didn't. Like so many people I just sat and watched like a deer in headlights!  :P

Its been about a year and a half for me. I got into it once i heard andreas antonopolus talk about it. He really understands the technology aspect and i could see the long term potential in it once i heard him speak about it. Then the price started skyrocketing, so i got involved. Now i believe in it reguardless of the price.

heard about it a few years back, but really got into bitcoin two months ago.  Now I'm fully converted and preaching the gospel.
