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 learned about it from a friend that has been playing with coins for a while.

Аbout Bitcoin, first, I saw on Twitter. At one time, there was a lot of info about cryptocurrency and it wasn't possible to miss it. It became curious. And after 4 years I bought my first 0.04BTC. I even clearly remember the weather outside the window that day, as if it were yesterday.

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.

I got into bitcoin when I saw news article in some local news portal.
It was just about 1 month before mtgox and a huge crash of bitcoin price.

As for me, I started playing with bitcoin by accident. I've worked in financial market for about 5 years. I've become more and more interested in a crypto because it looked like a kind of revelation at the time on the market.

My friend began to actively buy bitcoins at $ 7,000, after falling from $ 20,000. He lost about 500,000 dollars in a couple of months. After he told me about it, I began to study the topic thoroughly.
I like modern club music, and I love to dance and meet girls in clubs.

Yes of course. But now it has become a very risky tool, because low volatility has been observed for a long time.

Is it possible to receive interest on crypto? I think it's important, especially when you hold it for long time
