I was actually researching the proof of work concept for preventing email spam called hash cash. And stumbled on bitcoin.

Saw it in the news about a year ago, it didn't interest me that much. Recently I found out more about the mechanics and how bitcoins can be mined by individuals. Ok this stuff is actually quite interesting  Grin

A friend of mine found out about it on hackernews about a year and a half ago and asked me if I thought it was a scam. He started mining; I started buying.

I can't really remember that well. I think heard about Bitcoins by reading a post on some random website I used to go to years ago around when Bitcoins first came out.

Felt bad for not going to school so started watching some videos regarding linux, coding, security and then stumbled upon BTC. This was like 3 years ago and I didn't imagine it would actually become this big.

Read an article about BitCoin on money.cnn.com. Guy who wrote it didn't know what he was talking about, but it did get me to look into it.

I was reading about gold, silver and libertarian stuff when i found an article about silk road. The silk road concept didn't catch my attention but as soon as i read that the site operates with bitcoins i started researching. This was on July 2011. I noticed that the price was in a 'bubble' so i waited. I bought this year in may.

Now i'm trying to develope some projects bitcoin related. Smiley

Some one on a danish forum created a topic about this new coin and how to mine it.

It got my interest and i started mining my first coins, this was back when the BTC/USD was only ~$7

A year or so ago I saw something about it on reddit. Reading through the comments and whatnot got me interested, so I started looking into it further. Mind was blown.

the keiser report

Rep Thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=381041
If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited?
