This is unknown. We know he mined the first 50,000 bitcoins and that they weren't spend yet, but he ofcourse could've mined more and sold those.

Well I finally decided to join after lurking for a few months. As for experience I do own some BTC and have just started BTC mining in a pool.

I'm either a not-yet wildly-successful entrepreneur or a slacker lay-about depending on who you ask. My brother-in-law has money on the latter.

I'm smarter than the average bear. But so are 50% of bears and up to 60% of humans with internet access.

I am attracted to the philosophical freedoms bitcoin represents. Having some money launderers and crooks sniffing around is the cost of those freedoms.
Quote
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.  Benjamin Franklin sourced at http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Benjamin_Franklin

I'm about to build a test rig using 2x5970's and will see if I'm any good at system building and configuration.

At current prices of BTC and electricity downunder, it makes more sense to buy BTC at an exchange for now. However I have some mates who work in photovoltaic research, which may make this a viable output of their renewable energy experiments. Of course it depends on what the grid pays for electricity.

Hey people!

I've been lurking on here for about half a year or so, but I've just decided to get posting and what not.

I own a couple of bitcoins and have tried (and failed) to speculate on the market correctly. =P

ahoj,  got infected from a friend with the bitcoin virus. Living in Austria :-)
Somehow really interesting idea to start a currency that is independent from banks and nations. Didnt totally get the whole system but will dig deeper now.

When my friend told me about bitcoin the course was around 3$ now it rocketed in 2 month up to over 5$. Now Iam sad that I didnt buy some when he told me first ;-)

hey guys ive been trading bitcoin/usd since october, and have taken a huge interest in the project both for how much about economics it has taught me as well as how promising it is. i can only see its uses and userbase expanding from here. may 2012 be the year of the bitcoin!
