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?

3 years ago, someone intro me to a Crypto Mining MLM.
Invested.

Suppose to get Bitcoin after 6 months
Ended up with Litecoins...
Why didn't you end up with Bitcoin? Am asking this because something similar is almost happening with me, been a lover of Bitcoin but am pressingly interested in Ripple these few days.

I used cloud mining instead of buying to earn my coins. I tried the calculator I just found on the web comparing different cloud mining sites and it helped me much.

I heard about the bitcoin to my fellows and I have googled to have more information on this subject. At first, I was sceptical in comparison with this virtual currency. Having accomplished my first investment in the bitcoin on the minedecrypto platform, which was very advantageous to me, I decided to diversify my investments on some atlcoins 1 year ago. To this day, I do not complain 8) .

I've wanted to try cloud mining for a long time, but I've come across opinions that it's not profitable or safe more than once, so what you say, is it true? Also if you know, could you recommend a mining company.

I was purchasing something through the web, and that’s how I got to research it and learn about it! xD

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!

Actually my memory is bad and I cant really tell when i heard or read the first time about bitcoin. But actually it is now that I am so interested in it and since some weeks I am into it like a child with a new gift :) Still kind of a newbie. Maybe I am late to start but maybe not....lets see how this "advanture" will continue... ;)
