Hi all

Been mining now for about a month.  I have a background in computers, don't know why I haven't looked into bitcoin before.  Finding the forums have a wealth of knowledge and have enjoyed lurking over the past few weeks. Being a coin collector I'm very interested in the Casascius 1 BTC Coin.

'allo all.

I'm a software developer for a company (easy to find out), that put a small negative spotlight on Bitcoin recently... which consequently made me re-check it out and realize I missed an early "value-investment" chance and should hop on the opportunity.

In my spare time I like tinkering with networking stacks and cryptography and am always looking for small projects to do. Would love to do small r&d work for BTC Wink

Stumbled into this board when looking for ways to get some free BTC to check out my blockchain.info wallet and someone was giving BTC for beta testing (and consequently confused that I couldn't post until I realized I had to meet criteria to get out of newb jail).

So.. yeah.. feel free to message me if you want to sling work my way... I develop hardware crypto interface stacks... so if there's any interest there... I'd love to help (imagine: a smart-card token that has your wallet private key - great way to have "semi-cold" storage). Though... don't think I know of any tokens that use curve 256k1 :-/

lo all,

i was changing money from LR to STP and fees go up as high as 9%. my eye fell on the fee costs for bitcoins which were 0% so I had a look into it.

tried bitcoin client but downloading the blockchain takes ages so I now i'm using electrum.

heck, i even started mining bitcoins in a bitpool

i like the idea of decentralized payments, the banks are making a mess and the goverment involvements are to big anyway. hooray for bitcoins!

I'm new to board, been eyeing BTC for a couple years.  I'm now a new investor and new miner of bitcoins.  We will see how this plays out. 

As Europe financial institutions crumble, bitcoin may stand as a savior and safe zone for people who save money and are responsible with their finances.

People of Cyprus are about to get ~10% of their savings confiscated by Government: http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSBRE92G03I20130317?irpc=932

Btc is useful for me because it enables me to play poker on Seals with Clubs.  Being from the US it is rare to be able to receive money from a poker site in a timely manner.  With btc it is simple and quick.  I heard about Seals with Clubs last year and tried their freeroll tournaments.  I purchased some btc last month as the price was rising thru the 20s.  I signed up here to get info when I had problems with my first transaction with bitinstant.

If you don't know where you're going any road will get you there

 Grin Hi, I'm JJ. I'm most interested in how Bitcoin OTC scene will develop as I worked in the financial sector and I think the commercial bitcoin scene would benefit from financial products like swaps and options.
