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?

And you?
I heard about Bitcoin from one of my friends. I was not interested about it back then. Then, I got into Forex trading, which made me interested about btc trading as well afterwards.

In 2015, I traveled to HK for a conference. My credit score card for a few cause were given blocked after my first  transactions even as I turned into in HK.

So, I borrowed one thousand USD in coins from one in every of my pleasant pals who lives in HK.

Came again to India and I needed to ship the cash again to my buddy. There turned into a lot office work to cord switch one thousand USD and I refused to signal 14 pages of documents.

Instead, (used Circle again then) I offered three.three BTC at approximately three hundred USD every with my credit score card. Asked my buddy to create an account as properly and despatched him BTC.

Friend sees one thousand USD and asks me how have to he withdraw to his financial institution account? I ask him - do you actually need this cash, are you able to have enough money to lose it? He says - Yes.

I don't remember if I have replied to this post before, so sorry if this is redundant.
Anyways, I started by being interested and learning about other markets, especially the forex market, and, of course, reading about cryptocurrencies was inevitable whenever I researched something or read news. So I gave Bitcoin - and eventually other cryptos - a shot.

I started dealing with bitcoin for two years on the recommendation of my friend, who was already well invested in cryptocurrency and was doing technical analysis for stocks at the time. I was very interested in it, and then I invested my first $200.

Back when it was just a couple hundred bucks a coin, I did some freelance work for a guy who ran a small investment site. He offered to pay me in BTC, I had no idea what it was (I actually thought he was trying to scam me) and I refused. Eventually, he paid me through PayPal and I thought I had dodged a bullet.

A couple of years later, I took on some jobs for a site that worked with Ask Gamblers and Coinbuzz. As part of the process, I was asked to sign up for a BTC wallet, go through the process, and show what it was like for a new player to invest in BTCs and use them to gamble. That's when I first saw the value of BTCs and...well, let's just say I wasn't very happy. On the plus side, I bought a few hundred bucks' worth and it started the wheels turning for me.

With that initial job, I took a payment that equated to about 1 month's salary. If I had accepted bitcoin and sold them at their peak, it would be more than I have made in my 20+ year career.

I found out about it back in 2016, but didn't invest in it... After the high and ATH of 21k, I waited for a drop to buy it, and at the same time I started studying bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general.

I was reading a Wired article on Bitcoin and the Silk Road back in April 2011 or so.

 I saw a random thread posted on reddit, so I did some research and played around with it.

Somehow, a very long time ago, as a child, I saw about him, but then my brother told me that there was no point. Cryptocurrencies suck.
