I was like.
"I wonder if I can make some of that Bitcoin stuff playing poker"
Let me know how you got into Bitcoin or was it another coin that took you down the rabbit hole.
@BitMexTrader I'm an investor that was amazed by this last Bitcoin bull run. Started following crypto Twitter and found the coolest shit in Finance.
@dannydxviii Oh cool mate, thanks Danny for the boost and the feed back 👍
@BitMexTrader btw what's JRE?
@dannydxviii Joe Rogan's Podcast
@BitMexTrader I read the white paper right before the client was released... Bad times for me and my family so it took another rear to get involved in mining but yea I didn't know how money worked(usd/the fed) until I fully understood Bitcoin. Then it was a no-brainer.
@Sthaosin Same here about learning about the (USD/and fed res) there were lot of wait what do they do and who runs it.
oh shit you mined it back in the day well you are better off then most miners that are doing now.
@BitMexTrader yea, well that understanding didn't happen until after I sold out at $30usd. :( I'd be loaded if I wasn't so dumb lol. I've also lost over 300btc to stolen/broken PC's. It used to make me sick to think about it. So you can sub that BTC from circulation lol. When regular people realize how little btc there really is you and I will be giddy af with what little we have.
@Sthaosin Hey at least you are still in now still in the 1%-2% of the world or some shit.
@BitMexTrader Early 2009 someone on somethingawful.com posted this new digital money called "Bitcoin". Ron Paul's End the Fed campaign was in full force at the time so I was introduced to all of this at once. I had $225 burning a hole in my pocket. For about ten minutes I tried to purchase Bitcoin with this $225 and gave up, not wanting to use the Silk Road for fear of being tied to illicit activity. So instead I donated this money to Ron Paul. 8 years later I started buying my first Bitcoin.
@chowcollection Oh cool dude thanks for the feed back.
@BitMexTrader It could have been much worse, but I do feel like I have to make up for 8 years of lost time :)
@BitMexTrader Oh wow this was way earlier than I remembered. The post announcing Bitcoin on somethingawful.com must have been days before my donation on 12/17/2007. A little slice of Bitcoin history :)
@chowcollection What was the it in BTC.
@BitMexTrader I vaguely remember the price being something like $0.00001 for 1 BTC. I was like, "Wait a minute, something can be worth a fraction of a penny?"
@chowcollection oh smokers, thats why every sat I make now are like little baby children.
@BitMexTrader Haha yeah I'm terrible at buying the dip so I just pretend 1 Satoshi = $1 so I feel like I'm getting a steal no matter what price I'm buying at.
@BitMexTrader I built a bankroll from poker freerolls.
@verretor Same here dude, just got to have great money management.
@BitMexTrader for me it was ripple ( + hashcash + egold + bmoney + ... ) (2007) -> bitcoin (2009-10).
