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?
"No man has received from nature the right to give orders to others. Freedom is a gift from heaven, and every
individual of the same species has the right to enjoy it as soon as he is in enjoyment of his reason."

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.

     I saw a random thread posted on reddit, so I did some research and played around with it. I'm more interested in the trading aspect more then I am interested in mining bitcoins.

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 ;)

I hazily remember something from early 2011, but I couldn't get the client to work and then bitcoin crashed and I lost interest. Then I returned in January 2012 upon seeing some article "bitcoin alive and kicking" on reddit and was hooked. I can't mine, I'd cook myself in this small flat :) so ended up trading. Invested 23 BTC into MPEx IPO.. and the rest is history.

I heard about bitcoin from a friend. I have googled and found a plenty of info. At first I was sceptical, but I recently sold the ones I generated over a year ago, which turned the scepticism into takeaways :D

Started discussing gold and silver with friends and noticed it's similarities to bitcoin.  Both are undervalued in my opinion.

I can't remember EXACTLY, but I am pretty sure I just stumbled upon it. I think i got one of those GOOGLE NEWS emails and was bored, clicked, read, read some more.. i guess the rest is history.

My favorite NZB site was shut down and I wanted to join and the only form of payment they took, was BTC. I was thinking what the hell is BTC and how do I get some. Mining hashing, it just seemed weird. Finally figured out how to buy some and paid 60 for about 10btc. Lost interest till the big rise and my wallet that was worth about 20 buck was now worth about 400. Now a year later I hares in three mining companies, and mine on a small scale with 1 7970 and 5 Block Erupters using MinePeon on a R Pi.
