A forum I was trying to register for required a bitcoin payment.  Had heard about bitcoins prior to that, but never really looked into it.  There is a ton of info on this website, so I am glad I found it.

I saw some news on it around August 2012 and the rest was history.

Searched for anonymous ways of paying online a couple of years ago but did nothing about it back then.

Remembered the name though.

Now I needed to pay for VIP membership of a usenet search index and they accept only Bitcoin, so I thought it was high time to get started with bitcoin.

i am a U.S. POKER PLAYER that dislikes Zynga, or any form of play money poker game. My love for the game, is renewed! If and when lawmakers in my fubar government, decide to regulate online poker. I will still be using BTC  Grin

Why you ask?

 
1. The western union jerks dont get squat
2. The deposit/withdrawal takes minutes not weeks or months
  Cheesy
The coins i have won are worth more than when i won them
    thats a win... win! (literally)  Cool


also ,i have always hated banks. (except Tyra Banks)..

A new friend casually mentioned it in a conversation - I went home and googled it and read the wikipedia article. It blew my mind and I feel like something has irrevocably shifted inside of me...

Read about it in a magazine, though I don't recall which.  I work in cryptography, have a background in law, lean slightly libertarian and consider economics fascinating.  Perfect fit.

"Work in cryptography" fascinating! What exactly do you do?

I remember back in the days of compulsory military service in my country, they used to test all the guys (not me, I'm a girl) to check what they were best suited to do. The absolutely smartest ones got drafted for a bit longer than normal, got a language course thrown in, and did something cryptology related that they weren't allowed to talk about. Exciting stuff and it sits good on their CVs to this day, I think, because everyone knows they scored top on IQ at 18.

I learned about it from some podcast as well quite some time ago but never got into it until recently.

I saw a TV show on it on ABC, and it kind of piqued my interest.
If that's The Good Wife, that was where I first saw it. Didn't believe it was real though until the other day when I read a BBC article saying there is now a real world money exchange for btcoin.

Funny thing, I was actually on my way to work 1 morning, stopped to get coffe at the local AMPM and as luck would have it there was a bitcoin on the ground.

Mom always said if i found a bitcoin on the ground it was good luck!

About over 1 year ago, I go to my friends house and him and my other friend are talking about getting rich off of bit mining, or that was at least the plan. I was intrigued and did some research, found it too late to get into bit mining, but kept the thoughts of bitcoin in the back of my mind until recently, and here I am, finding out what I can for investment purposes and perhaps to accept as payment.

Getting into philosophy and anarchism. Introduced by Stefan Molyneux ar freedomainradio.com, but then Adam Kokesh from Adam vs the Man and his new podcast has led to me getting into it much more intensely.

Voluntaryism- The belief that ALL human interactions should be free of force, fraud and coercion.
Taxation is Theft; War is Murder; Incarceration is Kidnapping; Spanking is Assault; Federal Reserve Notes are Counterfeiting

I dont really remember where i first found out about bitcoin, but i know my reaction was like 'Thats too good to be true, that cant work'.
But after seeing more and more i noticed it obviously did work.
Now im a regular user with over 1000 transactions in my BTC client (no transaction under 0.5 BTC) and working on a few bitcoin related projects.
