Hi all, I'm a new Bitcoin user and I'm starting to generate some of my own coins.  I have a few friends who are also using it now.

I am a programmer by trade and have a fair amount of experience with different platforms like linux, Mac OS, iPhone, etc.

I am interested in running Bitcoin on other platforms like iPhone and I'm wondering if there is any interest in this or if anyone has a problem with this.  I'm also wondering if someone has already done this so I don't waste my time.  Thanks!

My Bitcoin address is 1XPTgDRhN8RFnzniWCddobD9iKZatrvH4

It's kind of funny to read these old posts and see how people threw bitcoins at eachother. lol Smiley

If you google OP's address there are several addresses with 100btc that have remained untouched since 2011.

Imagine in the future if btc would hit 100.000$, people are gonna start teaming up to hunt these lost address down and try to access them.

Actually, why haven't they already started?

I spent it all on pizza long ago:  https://blockchain.info/address/1XPTgDRhN8RFnzniWCddobD9iKZatrvH4

3-4 years ago there were less than 100 people frequenting this forum, and I was pretty happy to trade 10,000 coins for pizza.  I mean people can say I'm stupid, but it was a great deal at the time.  I don't think anyone could have known it would take off like this. Smiley

Seems like the infamous buyer of the most expensive pizza of all time has joined us in the thread!^^

At the time, Gavin had a bitcoin 'faucet' that gave out bitcoins for free, and a few people were trading them for less than a cent each, but nothing serious.  You can probably find all the old posts on this forum still.  I was learning OpenCL programming and mining bitcoins with a video card so the pizza was a good deal for me.  I couldn't have known that my pizza trade would end up being such a big deal, or that so many others would become interested in bitcoin and thus drive the value up.  The people I traded with didn't know it was going to explode either, they just took a risk - spending their 'real' money to buy some guy pizza in exchange for some internet Monopoly money.

Haha. I thought that's why you had bumped it.

Do you know what the guy you bought the pizza did with the coins? Haven't you had a load of messages or media requests? Why did you choose to stop by now after all this time?

Haha there are so many old posts to dig that are interesting, I often read them

You have found a good one + an update of the OP; @ laszlo : can you tell us more about how you lived the Bitcoin revolution? Did you quit your studies or your job to go have margarita.s on an island?

Probably should be the other way round  Cheesy.

If I was you I'd sell or make my own Pizza and try sell or raffle it on here haha. I'm sure you'd get a lot of interest.
