Figured I'd say hello to try to get my post count up.  Been watching the forums for months, decided to finally make an account so I can weigh in on some of the discussions.  Hold a relatively small amount of BTC, but enough to make it a fun ride one way or the other.  It's my hope that I will never have to convert my holdings into fiat, in a few years I should be able to pay for any services or goods with BTC. (optimistic outlook from a pessimistic person)

Hey there!
bought my first bitcoins at $16.
Wish I had bought more!!
I'm pretty excited about how world changing bitcoin can be.
I think this current media exposure wave is really exciting, but I think it will still be years before bitcoin is really mainstream.
I think many people have a hard time understanding bitcoin and they misunderstand the current high price.  I think of it like this, the exchange rate is almost totally irrelevant. Sure, it's exciting to the speculators, but every day there are new people coming to bitcoin, and they have no idea of the price history. They just know they need some bitcoin to do whatever it is they want to do, and they buy how much they need.  Who cares if a bitcoin is $100 or $1?  If I need it to send $1000 across a border, or to buy something, I'll just buy the appropriate amount.  It's like when you go to a foreign country on vacation, you just convert your dollars to the local currency regardless of the exchange rate. And, if more and more people are entering into bitcoin every day, as is obvious (even if SR is a major factor, what does it matter what the market is, as long as it is real) then the exchange rate will drift up.
Exciting times!

Hello all,

I've just bought some bitcoin yesterday at the "high price" of £52 a BTC. I looked into it months ago but never took the leap. I know the current price is considered high and ecomomists consider it a "bubble" but do not underestimate the implications this currency could have on global accounting framework, and the potential advantages to global businesses now operating in a global marketplace.

There are also advantages to be had by the general layman who will ultimately decide the fate of Bitcoin. The current resentment towards banks, along with the fact that mobile phone payments are becoming widely used, (and will be pushed by phone manufacturers), will only strengthen the currency.

When the general layman is on board with bitcoin, that's when you will see the currency reach a real high price!

Working on burnsides litecoin mining pool. 

Have done some study on bitcoin and litecoin and have basic understanding of them.  Have downloaded both qt clients, they look identical except for embedded pickaxe icon in litecoin.  Don't care or need to think about the mining difference/encryption/exchanges or whatever yet.  I need help from burnside (cannot send private messages or post anywhere but here Smiley  or other moderator.  Cannot get pool mining to work getting errors for log/pw and have confirmed all this.  Really would be glad to give out a phone number to him or a mod and talk this through or use skype even. 

Also have questions on gpu mining, that seems to be the way to speed things up and do more work.  Since cpu hashes are 1300-1900 per second, my understanding is mining will most likely have no effect.  I have a fairly good video card, nvidia GeForce GTX 560Ti but no clue how to get that power tapped here.  Hoping to have Intel Core i7 960 cpu going tandem as well.   I am not a programmer and feel like some of this requires a greater understanding of my rig than I currently have. 

So that's it.  Looking forward to learning about this, dialing in gpu mining, would like to have a real life chat with someone about this, and looking forward to being part of a pool and seeing what can happen.

Hi everyone. I'm new here, but I've been watching bitcoins since they where about $10/coin. I wanted to buy a few back then but I couldn't figure out an easy way to do it so I just kept putting it off. Cry Well I finally bought my first few coins a few days ago at around $70-$80 each, but I still think that's a pretty good price considering how fast it's been rising lately.

Also I believe Bitcoin is just such an amazing new idea/technology, and eventually I'd like to build some kind of ecommerce site or app based on it!

Hello All,
I've been watching bitcoins since the price was around $10.00 after the first crash. In fact, that's when I bought my first btc. Have a few more since then. (mums the word) Anyway, I'm primarily a computer  programmer by trade. I say primarily because I'm also president of a nationally accredited school. Programming is my first love which I still practice. I still support an accounting application that I have sold nationally.

I have 4 Jalapenos ordered from BFL which looks like might come in about June sometime. I don't know why I didn't get the next level up but was thinking I was getting equalivent horse power. (My math must have been off that day!) Anyway, this way, if one goes bad, I'll still have 3 more. (That is, if BFL delivers, which seems pretty iffy from what I've read here.). I know the difficulty will be going up and up but if the price keeps going up and up, it should equal out somewhat. I have seen estimates that they could go to a Million Dollars per bitcoin. I know that's pretty far fetched, but when they were .01 cents, who would have thought? $80.00 already!!!
