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 was searching for best graphic cards and I randomly hit the site with explanation of bitcoin and graphic cards, back in 2011.

I started using bitcoin when I wanted to earn without investments. Found one game for earnings without investments, is called MotoCoin. It does not boot the computer below 100%. It does not kill your computer like other games and minings. But I want to start investing in bitcoin by looking for any information about it. If there is any advice, I am always ready to listen

I learned about Bitcoin from my teacher. She was very impressed with the blockchain system and tried to drag us in.

My story is kinda boring. I got into it in early 2017 when the hype started building up. Nothing special.

Well, I first had heard about it in 2014. A friend of mine used it for his operations. After that i completely forgot about Bitcoin and the next time I heard about it only in the end of 2017 with all that hype going on. :o

Honestly I have been showing some kind of interest in it before now but was not actually trading, until a friend did me a favor of telling me more about it. And that's ho I got to trading in bitcoin today, and I can say I don't regret that decision.
