Title: How did you get into bitcoin?
Post by: bitcoinforum.com 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.

     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.

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.

I was contacted about a business that was focused on bitcoin for its main currency, commissions and new projects. Joined it and have made some bitcoin from it. It has since gone on to release several bitcoin related websites and is moving on to bigger projects. Early on it struggled because most people didn't know about bitcoin, including myself but things are looking good now. It has managed to give me several thousand dollars worth of bitcoin so I'm pretty happy with it all so far.

Well i broke my bitcoin virginity today and am i the proud new owner of some btc :) :D,


i started reading about bitcoins back in 2011 but was abit to scared to buy some as i herd all these horror stories and hackers and blah blah blah. so it wasn't really till the last few months iv really been watching btc markets and values. ( really makes you a little crazy) also with the price sky rocketing and today falling under 430GBP i thought this was the best time to buy some.


we really need to start making this process easier, although it is quite straight forward you kind of have to know what your doing in order to really understand it. also i would really like to start brancing btc out in my area, i speak to people on a daily basis about btc and they have no clue. so i was thinking if there is a simpler way of introducing this to a business, i dont mind doing the leg work and approaching . i may sound  a bit too optimistic like every new person to the world of bitcoin but i really want to start opening this up where i live, (uk) pretty much a untapped market.


also any donation will help massively :D thanks people!

It all started in 2011, on one of my favorite message board communities that I am a part of.


We are ALWAYS discussing VPN's, and when Silk Road became the rave on the underground market, TOR came up.


The tech heads on the board began discussing this protocol called "bitcoin" and that that was the only thing one could use when dealing with the particular VPN, TOR.


And slowly, but surely, I came around and started to understand that bitcoin was way, way, way bigger than a single clandestine website pushed by the mainstream media!


This...is...a REVOLUTION!

My brother started mining litecoins about 3 months ago. Since he started he has built 10 mining rigs. He tried for two weeks to get me into it to no avail. Finally he decided to park two of his miners at my home. After watching the coins click into the bitcoin account I was hooked. Since then I have spent well over 100 hours researching cryptocurrency.

I wish I could give you a moment, but I started following it last year, and was hooked by the idea of a currency that banks, governments, and private interests could create, manipulate, or control.


How can a free man not be attracted to such a liberating concept?


If you want to control a man, control his money! ;)

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?


For me, when bitcoin became popular in the gaming industry I become more eager to explore what bitcoin is, google and other advice from experts really helps me a lot to know more about it. As a result, we came up a new service which is Bitcoin as our new method gateways. Now Asianconnect is accepting bitcoin for betting on sports and casinos.


Cheers!

I can't give an exact day or time, or event that got me involved in Bitcoin.


But the person who inspires me within Bitcoin is Andreas Antonopoulos.  He's forgotten more about Bitcoin than I'll ever know, and I learn something relevant every time I see him on YouTube doing a speech in front of hundreds, or on Adam Kokesh.


Incredible ambassador and Bitcoin mentor.  We're lucky he's on the side of "The Future of Money"!

Hi! I learned about bitcoin only a half year ago from  a spam letter. I  googled and encounted  news about bankrupt of Mt.Gox exchange and other bad information,  so I decided to stay away from it but again another spam made me to reseach it properly and I learned that many people became rich with it and this coin appeared to be not a fake. From spam I came to real thing that brought me to altcurrency.

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

I mined a bunch in 2010 after stumbling upon the whitepaper while reading activist forums. Later I threw away my wallet. It is gone.

Later I bought a lot on $0.25 up to $11 while finishing my PhD and I lived on it through university and bought a flat with it. Zero debt.

I run trading bots with some of my portfolio. It is mostly worth the hassle and a decent part time job at that. I use the profits made for living expenses.

I was doing a research about graphics card as well and while I was looking for a cheaper graphics card (as i'm in the middle of low-no money), I came across this site (or a blog. I can't remember much) that talks about the potential of bitcoin and that was years ago. I just then got hooked up but I stopped without knowing that it will come back to me sometime soon. I kinda felt the disappointment of not investing in it before but here I am!

I had followed it off and on through the 2011-2013 stages and dived in when the big price surge happened.

I was very very close to buying $2k worth of bitcoin when they were around $2.  Wish I had.  Oh well.

For me I got started earlier this year after a friend mentioned it a couple of time ever since I've tried mining trading playing games(alot), and its been a cool ride and well worth the experience, I've recently been inspired by bitcoin as it looks like there's a lot of opportunities for it in creating better crowdfund and payment platforms especially in the gaming area, not just flash but also mainstream.
I'll be working on a crowdfunding platform that utilizes bitcoin and other concurrency, sorry cant post a link to it.

I earned my first bitcoin thru faucets. I was unaware the possibility of earning so much cash in bitcoins way back 2013, so I decided to quit halfway. And then that BOOM happen at the end of the year 2013. The price of a bitcoin was around $1k that I regretted ignoring the fact bitcoins can give me much money.

And today, I'm earning bitcoins thru gambling, sig, services, and investment.

Stupidly scoffed at the idea when it first came out years ago, now feel like a dumb ass getting into it a little late. I occasionally do a couple faucets throughout the day just for the hell of it, and I buy small amounts as I can afford to between rent and bills. Currently trying a cloud mining service and *hoping* it's not just scam crap. Tried selling an old *working might I add* Apple IIe here on the forums, but doesn't seem to be any interest in old nostalgic computers. Personally I love the old stuff, don't really want to part with it, but now I see the value of bitcoins is probably a little more worth selling it than keeping it.

I really hope bitcoin does take off, more so than it already has. Would love to see it replace fiat currency!

Hi.

I began interested in Bitcoins when I learned about faucets.

I visit my favorite ones and collect a bit on the side.  I figured that even owning a small about of Bitcoin is a good investment idea; if it becomes more mainstream, what little I have may be worth significantly more. If not; I had fun collecting it.

A work friend was telling me about something that ran on a computer and looked like usb flash drives with lights blinking and that this person was making money at it, he didn't want to tell him what it was because if everyone knew then the price of equipment would become more expensive and everyone would do it.

So I started searching the web for anything that resembled this after about 2 months of after work searching I found bitcoin mining.
When my friend asked if that was what he was doing he said yes, so I asked if he would meet with me and help me get started, to my surprise he said yes.

We met and got along and he helped me with anything I needed to know, I bought 2 - S5's in April 2015 and did nothing with them still wondering if this was really worth it at all considering that they were only going to make about $2 dollars a day profit over the cost of electric so they sat until August when he gave me a call out of the blue and asked how I was doing with it, I replied nothing, he said he would come over and get things going if I was interested.

After getting me set up and seeing it work I became more interested, he told me that there was a new AntMiner available so off I went into Bitmining.

Now I am running 20 - S7 AntMiners and looking for ways to expand because the service at my house is maxed out.
Still have a lot to learn hoping to do that here. I am only 4 Months old.

At first,I thought he was kidding because it is only by chance and it would take a lot of time just to gamble getting free bitcoins but guess what? I visit the website that he recommended (faucet website) and my first roll was worth around $50! Then I guess that is the start of my interest into bitcoin world.

Ha i first got into bitcoin many years ago after looking for some way to transfer webmoney ,never did find a way that i trusted to do wmz to bitcoin dont know about now its probably easier,but it made me look into bitcoin and the more i looked the better i thought it was as a solution to online payments,so i started using it mainly to pay for online gaming and since there are lots of places you get it for nothing more than a few clicks it was perfect,saves me digging into my own pocket and since i am a bit of a surfing nut i kind of like searching through all the faucets,the good news as i see it is there is about to be a shift from boring plain old style faucets to more with a design element to them and even some are moving towards having a social element with chat boxes and forums.

Yea there has been a lot of changes but its all good and you can tell as the main steam media scream its dying once again ,sometimes i wonder if they are smart enough to understand as long as there is a need for a universal internet currency bitcoin will always be a strong player ,yes it will peak and trough but then so does every other currency,for the first time i really do think bitcoin is starting to scare the big boys.

Anyway nice to meet all you guys and nice forum team :)

I have a friend, who is dealing with Bitcoins since I know him. I was always very curious about what he is doing, what that "Bitcoin" actually is...after a while he formed a startup company and invited me to join. I started to dig in a bit deeper and realized that this geeky invention called Bitcoin is not that geeky at all and which is more - it`s actually something I always hopped to happen...an alternative to "almighty" bank system. :) My rebellious soul "bought" the whole concept immediately and honestly - there is far too less women dealing with Bitcoins (not trying to sound feminist - but some Bitcoin female empowerment can`t harm ;))....

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.
and it has changed the world!

I first got astonished by sky-rocketing prices of Bitcoin. Studied a bit to understand that it is a real money and independent of government approval, what gives people freedom from the money-policies (inflation, deflation, recessions, depressions) and allows an allows sound economics and prosperity. Next step was start trading. But I got interested on the background of the trading systems and decided to join a team to construct our own trading company. And we just launched the company few days ago. We intend to be the lowest fees worldwide (during first months it is completely free). I will do a different post to set the official announcement. By now it is enough to give you the site address. Crypto-Trade.net I hope you all enjoy it.

IT's just a few clicks or tap of my phone. (Philippines only)

Then when I tried exploring the account I saw this BTC wallet address and try to research on it for better knowledge then bumped into bitcoin world which is the faucets then some investment programs to doublers then having my very own community now.

I don't remember the year, probably 2010, but I saw a post about it in some Linux forum and started poking around.  I decided to buy some but it was impossible.  There were a bunch of sites that offered them for sale in currencies other than USD, but nothing I had.  And the BitcoinFaucet had run dry by then.

Frustrated, I mostly ignored them until last year when I opened a [censored] dot com account and was finally able to buy some.  Yeah!

I never bothered trying to mine them, and that's just as well.  You need some real computing power to be competitive now.

Hey all!  I'm new to forums so hopefully I'm doing this right!
I'm Emma and work from home online.  Bitcoin is one of my favorites!  I've been following it for 1.5 years and bought in when it was around $700.  I wanted to get in on it when it was $350 but someone I had trusted discouraged me from it.  Now I'm real sorry about that!  LOL  I've also been through my fair share of scams and schemes and am now an advocate of actually learning about bitcoin before throwing money into the first so-called investment site, and earning legitimately from it!  Love to connect with people who are success minded!

I firstly heard bitcoin from a friend years ago. He keep saying that it will be boomed in the next few years. I ignored him that looks like he is dumb. But I was wrong  :(  He has more than money right now and left his 9 to 5 job. He's doing the bitcoin trade as his full-time job. I regret that I didn't listen to him. Now, I went back to him and asked to teach me. Started my first bitcoin trade in Paxful and looking for more trades this coming weeks.

26th March 2016 - that is when I first heard about Bitcoin. Someone who was associated with a company which was into Bitcoin Mining and was promoting itself through MLM and networking approached me telling the concept of Bitcoin and story of Satoshi Nakamoto.  Initially it appeared a ponzi scheme and a kid's story but as I realized the potential of Bitcoins I got deeply interested into it. That time I was trying to learn blogging. As this topic of Bitcoin got me interested I started reading and writing about Bitcoins. Soon I had a blogsite : infoaboutbitcoins dot com, where I wrote basics about Bitcoins for learners. To this day I am so fond of Bitcoins. My first purchase was on 26th March 2016 when bitcoin was less than $450 and today its five times more over a period of little over an year.

Bitcoin is great! Hats off to Satoshi Nakamoto wherever he is......

I was introduced to cryptocurrency by one of my friends who was trading crypto at the time.

He told me about how he made money by investing in Bitcoins.
Then we pooled in some money and invested in Litecoin when it was trading at $4.
We invested heavily in it at the time having spotted the opportunity.
Exited 50% of our portfolio at $55 and the rest is held for further surge.

Then we started trading on a daily short term basis and formed our own group where we gave investment advisory and intraday calls.

Business is going pretty well and we are happy that we are into this market when it is premature and at a very nascent stage.

Not much details are revealed yet as their whitepaper is to be unleashed in 5 days, but what got me is the concept and the team, it’s really promising option.

When Bitcoin exploded here a couple of weeks ago I started to do my research to learn more about how this all works. I decided to jump in on this as there seem to be lots of opportunities to make a great profit.

So far I've invested in BTC and ETH and two ICO's that sounds promising. Not a lot, just dipping my toes to learn how everything works and to avoid makes big mistakes.

Could mining seems to be another great way to make a good income, however, lot's of warnings out there from people with bad experiences with scams, so be aware, do your research!

I have selected two mining companies, both look very solid and legit. I have two contracts which are very profitable with daily payoff around 1% - depending on the type of contract, yearly or open-ended(I have both).

Happy to share my experiences if you message me.

I bought one Bitcoin in september when it was worth a bit less than 5K. Still hodling it. Of course I should have gotten rid of it before it started to go downhill from 19K, but now it's rising again. To be honest I feel like I should get rid of it and buy smaller crypto's instead (XRP, XEM, MIOTA?) but I guess that takes a lot of research so to not make any stupid moves.

Here is my second video I promised. This one's about how much money of Your portfolio should You invest if You are willing to invest in crypto's (no links, no sales pitches - made for fun and because I am developing my animation video making skills):

When I first heard of Bitcoin, I didn't really hear about it. I was managing a Mobile Adult CPA Affiliate Network and some of my affiliates brought it to my attention that there were a few bad guys locking certain websites and pages that we were paying a high price on for traffic.

Once I saw "digital currency" that was it for me. Sold, jumped in. Been in ever since.

Then in 2017 I took a deeper look into it, and after submersing myself into the research on it I realized it was time to invest and diversify my portfolio. Most influential factor the word of mouth and the price action going up.

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.
Nice answer  ;)

In 2013 I was winding down a career in finance and looked at the guy next to me on our trading desk and said - we need to buy some of this bitcoin and put it in a drawer somewhere.  I lacked the guts or intellectual firepower to truly vet the idea, so I bought a tiny amount and made a little bit of money.

I traded BTC again in 2017, with better results but again not enough for it to change my life. I remained fascinated by the space however.

No longer in finance, I have been spending my days selling power services to cannabis cultivators. Now I am looking for miners - their energy consumption dwarfs any other business outside of data centers perhaps. I joined the forum to educate myself as an investor and in addition to help find energy solutions for miners!

At the end of the talk, he mentioned he was part of a fledgling Bitcoin movement in Toronto and explained what the blockchain was and how Bitcoin worked. I was spellbound and asked him for his contact info after the talk. We met up on a subsequent visit to Toronto and he introduced me to Crypto Jedis that I still consult to this day for guidance and information.

The answer to that question coincides with my discovery of a social media platform called Steemit. It's basically a site that pays you for creating original content in the form of posts. When I discovered it almost a year ago, I thought the idea was revolutionary, although from what I saw in it's infancy is that it was difficult to make a decent amount of money on it. So the Steem and Steem Dollars tokens that I earned through creating posts was my introduction into the world of cryptocurrencies. Soon after when I learned how to cash out came my introduction to Bitcoin (seeing as how that token is/was the main exchange for Steem and Steem Dollars).

It's been a fun ride on that platform, I must say, and we're still using it to this very day.

I had no idea what he was talking about.
This was about 6 years ago. I was still in college.
Now I work in the IT industry.


Time sure flies.

But the seminar was really impressive where I also get some quality time to spent with the speaker and that few minutes inspired me to start my career in bitcoin, not I have few investments in bitcoins and hope to do more with the help good minds here.

So I start to know everything about crypto and Bitcoin. As a newbie, I'd like to make some friends here, someone who r interested in crypto trading strategy, I'd like to share mine. :)

I learned about cryptocurrencies, bitcoins a few years ago from MMORPG games. Since then, I have been reading something from time to time, and a few months ago I registered for CoinDeal (https://coindeal.com) and regularly started investing and trading. And every time they bring a new cryptocurrency that will win the vote, I read about it, and I'm looking for an opinion whether it is worth the investment and better to let go.

I can't remember exactly when I heard about Bitcoin for the 1st time. That was a long long time ago. I knew about it all these whiles, but not until the super run in 2017 I am feeling so regretful why I couldn't bother with it earlier. So consider me new as I am trying my best to find a way to invest in cryptocurrencies. Starting with faucets now since I am poor XD

Bitcoin and discussions about it started to appear constantly in 2017 in my area. I found it pretty interesting and the curiosity has risen through time. I'm also fond of taking risk so... that's when I decided to invest some of my saving in cryptocurrency. (:

It was my first year in college and we had to do a presentation about an economic-related topic. Our group didn't want to talk about something so safe and traditional then, like inflation or tax. So one of my friend came up with bitcoin (and I had no idea how she knew about it). And so, we were doing research about bitcoin. The day of presentation, it was so successful that we had never expected it to be. Our professor loves the topic (well, mostly because it was new for her too) and gave us the highest score in class. And guess what, all the following years, many other group chose to talk about bitcoin for their presentation too (though I don't know about there score).
I didn't do anything bitcoin for the rest of my college years, and I didn't think that I would do anything bitcoin-related. Guess what? I'm working on a project offering a tool to sell crypto easily now. That's my story with bitcoin. Bitcoin is truly full of surprises for me, honestly.
If you want to know what I'm working on, please check [EDITED] and give me some feedbacks. I'd really appreciate that. Thank you.

A lot of people that I didn't want to know me had to pay me for various pieces of code... so I told them to pay me in Bitcoin (after just having found out about it). In the next years, I took over 100 payments with Bitcoin, sadly selling for USD every time. Obviously, I wish I had kept a bit... but in those times the huge majority didn't see the long term potential in the coin getting a lot more valuable. It was like USD for us... you don't expect USD to go up in value, do you?

I got really lucky.  I bought $100 worth of BTC in 2012 with the intention of buying something on the darknet markets. Bitcoin was $11/coin at the time.  I ended up holding on to them as the value went up and up. I sold half in 2014 and bought into a Vanguard index fund, as BTC had been my first ever investment and I realized the responsible thing to do would be to diversify.  I still have the other half of those original coins, which are worth over $10k now. Since there is no way for me to lose at this point, I’m just holding on to them to see what happens.

Mining it self is the original source of earning bitcoins. Cloud mining are platforms that bridge the gap between purchasing expensive mining hardware and investing. With as little as $100 you can invest in cloud mining.

Yeah there is a problem with fraudsters, that’s why you need to make inquiries and seek expert opinion on where to invest your funds. if you are looking for a reliable platform, The best cloud mining platform I have encountered and I can vouch for it reliability is Hashnow ASIC & FPGA Cloud Mining . They are unique and boast of outstanding features like:

 From my experience their profits are the best and no difficulty withdrawing your profits. Do well to check it out and invest.

One of my friends was into cryptos and he used to constantly check bitcoin prices. I was pretty intrigued and asked him what it was. He told me about it and did some study about it. I took a good time reading about it and finally invested in it. i’m happy i got into it.

More or less 10 years ago, one of my friend's husband mines BTC for a living. We don't know that it will become profitable so I and another friend of mine ignored it. I got influenced again last 2016 to 2017 where BTC got its ATH at $19K per 1BTC. Since I got busy after that I lie'd low in the crypto world last year. I'm getting back now and probably need to catch up with everything I missed.

That's very unfortunate. You could have sold it in the year 2017 where BTC was valued at $19K.

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 got in when Bitcoin started booming in the market and suddenly got a lot of traction. One of my friends suggested me to have a look and at that time it seemed very interesting that a decentralized currency in trend getting so many people to start investing and mining. That is how I got into it.

In 2015, I traveled to HK for a conference. My credit card for some reason got blocked after my first two transactions while I was in HK.

So, I borrowed 1000 USD in cash from one of my best friends who lives in HK.

Came back to Pakistan and I had to send the money back to my friend. There was so much paperwork to wire transfer 1000 USD and I refused to sign 14 pages of documents.

Instead, I bought 3.3 BTC at about 300 USD each with my credit card. Asked my friend to create an account as well and sent him BTC.

Friend sees 1000 USD and asks me how should he withdraw to his bank account? I ask him - do you really need this money, can you afford to lose it? He says - Yes.

We both forget about it, till July this year. Suddenly a 1000 USD is worth 8000 USD . Friend is jumping with joy and he gifts me 1/3rd of his BTC stash!

It all started in December 2014 and I actually had zero clue what bitcoin was, although I had heard the term before. I was on the crapper at work and picked up a bitcoin magazine that someone had left behind. After reading a few articles, the technology had my attention and I decided to research the subject a bit more when I got home that day. By that evening, I was signed up for a [censored] account and starting the verification process. No more than a week later I had dropped $10,700 and acquired almost 36 coins. Admittedly, I still had no idea what the heck I was getting into but it seemed promising enough to get me to pull the trigger on such a risky investment; my only investment…ever.
[/size]My wife thought I was an idiot and my co-workers thought I had made a huge mistake. After about 4 months, my coins dropped about 50% of their original value and I too started thinking I had made a bonehead move. However, I was in it for the long run and left the coins alone. Needless to say, I have turned $10,700 into $104,000 in just 2.5 years. My wife is now singing a different tune and I occasionally get random text messages from my old co-workers when they see what bitcoin has been doing these past 12 months. It's certainly been huge risk, huge reward.[/color]

A very interesting question lol. It was back in 2016 when i googled how to earn money online.


There came a post that talked about faucet. It says if you want easy money go for faucets so I started claiming for faucets and came to know Bitcoin.
After two months I came to know Litecoin and then it goes on. :)


Although as always, I still wish I had my first Bitcoin back in 2010. Cheers.

My beginning was very tedious, I entered with a group of people who referred me to make some money by clicking on ads but I got tired. Then I discovered mining along with investments. Clearly I prefer the 2nd choice I got because it gives much more profit and feels better the time you spent on that.

A few years ago I started working for a company that makes forecasts about lots of different assets. I was hired for PR but I soon became interested in the background of it all, and started learning about trading and investing. Primarily I was always interested in the forex market, but as I learned more and more about blockchain and cryptos, I became more and more interested. Before then, I had only a very vague understanding about what bitcoin was.

In my case it was due to Ethereum's cryptokitties.

I watched a video about it on some youtube channel or other, and, for some reason, it spoke to me. I guess it felt like real-life pokemon catching or something like that? It felt a bit nostalgic. It made me look into cryptocurrencies more closely.

I had heard of blockchain technology and Bitcoin before, but I didn't pay much attention to it until then. I am a late bloomer, I know...

I got into bitcoin when one of my office colleagues told me that he has started investing in digital currency i.e. Bitcoin and has been making a lot of money since prices have been going up. So I started searching about it on google and stumbled upon ExoCrow, a digital currency platform.

I started exploring it more and did some transactions on the platform and made a good amount of money.
