Hi guys,

After reading a lot here, it seems we are related in some way or other (besides our love for btcs Smiley)

I mean, for what I read, it seems we all share the same profile in some degree. I don't want to classify anybody, but I thought it was kind of funny how we all share some of the same interests.  

Bitcoin User Profile:
  • Nerd
  • Smart
  • Geek
  • 90% Men
  • 70% age range 20-40 years
  • Speak English (first or second language)
  • Think more anarchical
  • Like to be anonymous
  • Not religious
  • Like conspiracy theories
  • Use more Android devices

Added:
  • Knows Linux
  • Comfortable with taking unusually large risks
  • Open to patiently listening/reading about unpopular ideas
  • Doesn't listen to much if anything from main stream medias. (TV)
  • Ron Paul supporter or appreciates what he says about America

*I will edit the list according to your suggestions Smiley

You can make me smile Smiley

I honestly think this is stereotyping too much. A lot of these don't fit me in particular.

  • Nerd
  • Smart
  • Geek
Really subjective. I don't strongly identify with any of those words, but I can see how they can be applied. Other Bitcoin users, not so much. If we were all smart, Pirate@40 wouldn't have happened.

  • 90% Men
I'll concede that most Bitcoiners are male.

  • 70% age range 20-40 years
I'm not personally, and many other Bitcoiners aren't (e.g. Phinnaeus Gage), but the 70% is probably reasonable.

  • Speak English (first or second language)
Most do, but not all.

  • Think more anarchical
  • Like to be anonymous
  • Not religious
  • Like conspiracy theories
  • Use more Android devices
These are really overgeneralizing. For example, I am indifferent to anonymity (I feel that anonymity can be dangerous in the wrong hands), despise conspiracy theories, and do not use Android. That's 3/5 that I don't fit myself, so the community as a whole will probably fit it even less.

I hate conspiracy theories.. and I don't know why you'd cast that aspersion on the Bitcoin community... unless you have some agenda to paint us all as nutballs so you can sideline us in economic debates.
What bank do you work for and just why are you 'profiling' us anyway!?


Anyway - for your dossier - the rest of it was pretty much correct for me - though I might just sneak into the x% of 'elderly' Bitcoiners!

Nice!

My girlfriend is not on these forums, but she's an active Bitcoin user... perhaps these results have a bias as the polling is done on a forum, correlating more with the profile of internet-forum users than with Bitcoin users. As a whole, I would imagine few tech forums have women on them, even if the technology itself is super popular and widely used. Say, like a forum for Windows-users. Lot's of women use Windows OS, but not very many will join a forum about it hahaha.

Then again, perhaps I just have a bias because she's my girlfriend...  Cheesy

Did you refer her, or vice versa? Or did you both know about it beforehand?
