Hello, my name is Kotank and I just recently found out about Bitcoin two weeks ago before the big boom. I thought it was an interesting investment opportunity, however being a college student with university fees to pay, I didn't want to convert that money into bitcoin and/or take out a loan. I've been told never take out loans and stay debt free and I plan to keep it that way.

However since this boom has happened my interest finally peaked and I wanted to know more about bitcoin not only from an average joe's perspective, but from a student who is majoring in Economics as well. Hope to meet some great people that will show me the how the economics of digital currency works and who knows. Hopefully when I have some actual money I can put it into this. But for now I guess I'll stick with mining and the free sites.

Thanks for the nice site to find great information and I hope to be around for awhile.

Hello all! I'm basically new to crypto-currency. I first heard of bitcoin a couple of years ago but (sadly) didn't pay much attention to it. 4 weeks ago I started seeing more and more articles on bitcoin and other crypto currencies and 3 weeks ago I bought my first .5 bitcoin for $29.00 on eBay. At the time a bitcoin was worth ~40 and I knew I was overpaying but after researching crypto coins more and more I became a believer and I needed somebody to send me a bitcoin so I could have a better understanding of the transaction process. A couple days later the whole "cyprus" bank bailout was announced, which I personally don't believe a bunch of cypriots moved their life savings into bitcoin but I do believe it was a catalyst that produced more exposure for bitcoin, I mean what better way to protect your wealth than crypto currency? I bought that .5 bitcoin at a good time because now it's worth ~$116. Not a bad return on a $29 investment but I don't plan on giving it up anytime soon. As a matter of fact, I've been researching the whole mining process and I was mining bitcoins for while but my hardware is insufficient to really make it worth it. I don't have much GPU power (yet) but I have a lot of CPU power so I decided to switch to litecoin mining and I'm doing quite well for a noob even with all the GPU bitcoin miners jumping ship and moving over to litecoin mining.  I use my litecoins to invest in more bitcoins and other coins also.

I plan to become more active in this community and I'm glad I'm here, I'm glad I found you guys. The world needs cryptocurrency. I would like to end this note on my favorite aspect of Bitcoin. Bitcoin does not let me spend more bitcoins than I have. Let me repeat that, I cannot spend more bitcoins than I have. Credit cards, bank overdraft charges, high interest rates, etc are tools used by banksters used to drain you of what little money the IRS lets you keep out of your paycheck. I have been trying to keep up with the Joneses for longer than I care to admit and have made many financial mistakes along the way by spending more money than I actually had and I'm still paying for it. I've always believed I needed the best car, the biggest house and the nicest clothes and I spent more money than I had trying to obtain them. Now I can't even get a loan with an incredibly high interest rate while my own government is trillions of dollars in debt. That's bullsh!t if you ask me.

Sorry guys, that's enough ranting for today. Thanks for listening if you've actually read this far.

Hey, I'm Trong Trongersoll.

I'm a retired software engineer. When i find things that interest me i jump in with both feet. Currently BitCoin is interesting. I'd like to play with some mining using old equipment i have laying around. Sadly, it would have to be CPU mining and everyone says "don't bother". i may try it anyway. Roll Eyes

Hi, I am new on the board, and have been buying a few coins a week for the last month.  Pretty exciting so far, I have only sold 1/2 coin, just to make sure the money would go back in my bank, which it did.  Is there a wallet/exchange that offers a Stop-Loss order?  MtGox does not......  which is amazing, that's a pretty basic trade.
Thanks for all the info, "Long Time Posters!"

Hi, I'm Victoria. I've admired bitcoin from the start for anti-federal reserve and tech innovation reasons, but finally bought in five days ago. Bought more today after I found out about the real-time chart at http://bitcoin.clarkmoody.com/ — so much more interesting/confidence-inducing than the tiny static chart at Mt Gox Smiley

Also, I saw a survey that showed that only 4% of bitcoin users were women, and I'd like to help improve that statistic because cryptocurrency is important and I want it supported by a more balanced community.

I prefer bitcoinity.org/markets, mainly because I can minimize and see the price move on the tab and also the all time high notice is fun.

I used to do folding@home but decided to switch when their last version was not very stable in my environment. Now I wish I would have changed sooner. Smiley
