Had some readings on Bitcoin for a class this semester, piqued my interest, ready to learn more and do some trading. Community has been very informative so far.

Hey there, Im using and trading Bitcoins for about 8 months now. I'm using and supporting bitcoin for the same reason as the most people here, disliking the current system.

I find the idea of trading in cash money to bitcoins interesting and positive (e.g. get bitcoin). I am planning to start such service for Europe. I need to read and know more details about bitcoins and rules before I can make this true.

I want to read and learn more from the people whoare using bitcoins. This is why I am on this forum.

Regards,
Jurjen

Hey, it seems like getting out of the newbie box is going to take awhile.

I'm working on some BitCoin related websites that'll launch as soon as I acquire some more coin and find an area to promote it.

What kind of projects are you working on, or is it secret?

Not secret!

I've ran a 'Free Second Life Linden' site since 2007, and I'm basically going to open one up for BitCoins soon. Where users do things like watch youtube videos/ads, facebook LIKE pages, complete offers, register to sites, etc. and earn BitCoin. In addition to BitCoins users could also withdraw the earned rewards to Second Life, or redeem for amazon gift cards, etc. The site is done, minimum withdrawal is 0.01 BitCoins. I just need to buy/trade for more. Ive traded $L for some, but need more to be on the safe side. On average I'd assume most users would only be able to earn like 0.25 BTC, more only if they put in a lot of effort in 'Tasks'.

Other sites I was thinking about were an online casino where users could compete in skill based games to see who gets the highest amount of points. I'd also like to try my hand at a marketplace.

Those are probably the best three ideas I have. The codes all done from previous projects. Ive had lots of random virtual currency websites over the past few years, so its basically just reworking them for BitCoins and seeing if theres any interest.

sounds like great idea!

Yes, great idea indeed! Looking forward to the release!

Hello all.

I've been lurking these forums for about a month now, just reading other people's reactions to things, and now that I have a handle on how to mine, how to exchange bitcoins, how the blockchain works, etc, I've convinced an entrepreneurial friend of mine to accept bitcoin on his website.  I am trying to get the API for Paysius working, and so I finally broke down and registered here.  Hopefully I can get some information on it, because Bit-Pay requires a TAX-ID to sign up, which would be great for my friend, but I want everything set up and working before I hand it over to him and don't want to go through the hassle of getting my own TAX ID.  I will if Paysius doesn't pan out, but damn.

Anyways, I'm loving the bitcoin community.  Perfect mesh of economics, IT and libertarianism.  Fits me like a glove.

Although I was on the early cypherpunks mailing list and have been interested in the general concept of digital cash for some time, what actually got me into Bitcoin finally was that Bitcoin poker sites like Seals are about the only ones to allow U.S. players.

I suspect that will stop eventually if the traffic becomes profitable enough.

That the currency allows other potentially interesting uses is just a side bonus, although it may become the main attraction for me eventually.

Hello forums members,

       I had just recently been directed to Bitcoins and have become interested. With the little money I
have, I hope to sell some of my services in exchange for this currency. I am an animator of 4 years,
current student of conceptual design (In College), graphic designer, sequential artist, and all around
knowledgable of Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, along with most other Adobe products. I hope to meet
some of you and better understand the community.

I am also a part time system administrator of an IT department.

It's been a while since I first heard about Bitcoins.  I had to look up a chart from this Wired Article to figure out when that was.  It looks like I first heard about them around July 2011.

I was on PokerProsNetwork back when it was on the Cake Netowrk (site went to crap lately, different story).  They had a chat room and this guy ThundeToe was telling me about how he was buying up some high end video card to mine bitcoins.  I can't remember how we got started talking about it.  Probably he was bragging to me about it and I naturally was curious.  I remember him talking about $20 and $30 bitcoins so that puts the date around July 2011.

Anyways, somehow I learned about SealsWithClubs.org (now it's .eu), maybe from thundetoe, maybe through a google search, and I figured, what the hell, this could blow up big.  So I was playing their winner take all freerolls every hour.  I would stay up late when there were like 6 people playing so I could win 0.05 BTC.  Then I used those profits to play the half hourly which had 0.1B or maybe it was .05B Added, I can't remember now.  It wasn't long until I had a bitcoin, then 10, then when I got to 50, I was pretty pleased, that being a block reward.  I used to say, "I have Fifty Nifty Bitcoins".

I got up to about 96B, I don't think I've hit the 100 mark yet, but SWC is a great place to win bitcoins.  I looked into mining and of course I was put off by the capital outlays.  I'm interested in trying to buy bitcoin bonds, I want to put some of these BTC to work for me.  I was gonna buy a $100 Kroger Gift Card with my BTC but I changed my mind.  I really want to reinvest these things somehow.  But as far as the bonds go, it looks like a first come first serve thing, and I've missed the boat so far.  As they expand their mining operations, I hope to be able to buy some.

Hello all, pwnorbownd here, BTC Miner startign his long journey to easy BTC with a 6850 to eventually snag a 7970 for my current gaming rig and the build a x3 or x4 6770 rig for BTC mining only. Hopefully going to get to know alot of people on this forum as I eventually start to trade my BTC finds in the next few years.

I started about 6 days ago when I saw a newegg review about the Mhash of a 7970 I have my eye on. Ever since then I've been hooked and running my GPU @ 890 Core 300 Mem for a whopping 227 mhash/s. (I know, sad right.  Tongue)

Finally found a forum for hardware nerds like me  Grin

Guess I'll be like everyone else...
