No such memories for me, I got into Bitcoin when the price was already above $900  Sad Although I can still somewhat relate to what you're saying (albeit on a much smaller scale). I got into Dogecoin a week after it was released when mining was super easy. And I was ecstatic when it peaked at over 200 sat, I had bought a bunch in the 15 - 30 sat range  Grin

A very pleasant experience. While I know the bitcoin no experience quite fun, because at that point I just noticed bitcoin as currency and yet know forum or a group which speaks of bitcoin. I just saw or read on Google and after that I came to know this forum, this forum of my life be more blissful

I hope we are still in the "Good time" and bitcoin will continue to progress. Hopefully in a few years' time, I will tell others that each post on bitcointalk would give me 300 bits (which could be a big amount in 2020!).

I wanted to post almost the same.If Bitcoin keeps growing and improving in a few years we may talk about how some have earned a nice little fortune with signature campaigns when Bitcoin was still cheap. Then we will mostly talk and pay in bits and not Bitcoin anymore.
And yes this could be a possible scenario at the end of 2020 after the next halving.

Now you watch thousands of ads and you cant earn 0.01 bitcoin, At 2011 i didnt know about bitcoin maybe I have heard but didnt pay attention to that because it was something new and didnt know the potential of bitcoin that has now or will have in the next few years.

Those people who discovered bitcoin early are very lucky.
If I have a time machine, I'll get all the money I have, borrow a lot from lenders, go back to when bitcoin was created and then bought as much bitcoins as I can. Then pay the lenders. Make profit. Then repeat.

You are lucky person , because you have joined the Bitcoin world since 2011, in that time the Bitcoin price was very cheap , and sure you accumulated big experience over these years , for me , I have joined the Bitcoin world since 2015 ( about one year only ) , and I am glad to be one of the Bitcoin fans and part of this amazing community .

The first time i knew bitcoin when its price was like 100$. I guess it was in october 2013. Then everything has blown up, the madness started, people went to moon etc and the price tag was suddenly 1000$. Good old days.

I guess I was more lucky than being clever so i didn't believe that 40k$ price rumours and i get out before it is too late.

i remember a lot of things about bitcoin, the price rise to the moon, the solo mining hearing about them everywhere but what i have personally experienced is after a period of time passed and price was already heading down from the ATH Sad

Back in Bitcoin's past, the feeling to own and use Bitcoin was quite different from today. It felt much more experimental and use was less serious than today. A lot of Bitcoin was wasted for extremely weird investments and openly advertised Ponzi schemes. These things are not entirely absent today, but people are much more serious when using Bitcoin and are caring a lot more about its value. I guess people today are much more aware that Bitcoin is real money, so they are less inclined to waste it just for fun.

I miss the early days, because all the chaos and drama around it was somehow inspiring. One felt like swimming in some kind of primordial ooze, being curious if evolution would start and where it would lead to. In addition the Bitcoin community was much more anarchist and critical of the establishment than today. Nowadays, a lot of trader idiots have entered the community, that are just looking for some unsustainable fiat return and do not care about Bitcoin's origin at all.

I remember back in the day when it was common for most posters in the forum to have 500, 1,000 or even 5,000 BTC  and more at their disposal. Reading some of the posts now it appears that many people do not even have 2 x 0.1BTC to rub together. Even taking into account the exchange rate going up the average wealth of posters seems to have dropped considerably. Why is this so?

maybe it is because back then apart from price being super low that you could actually buy 1BTC with a couple of bucks another reason could be the ease of mining.
you could decide you wanted to make bitcoin, then all you had to do was download the wallet and a miner and start earning bitcoin by solo mining with reward of 50BTC per block.

because there is no other way to make free bitcoins, to be honest in my opinion the easiest way is to participate in signature campaigns

Faucets and just faucets, non stop faucets just to get that quota for a day. I even looked for an app in my android that could make me some bitcoin. Those days of sleepless night to earn some decent freebies for a day.  Grin

Yup, indeed the faucet is a way the most widely sought by all. Because the way to get the bitcoin is much easier than any other way. But it also takes quite a long time, if they want to get the bitcoin we want. Paramount must have an unyielding spirit and soul

First experience with bitcoin was Dogecoin back in college. Used to mine at about 30 khs on my PoS computer.

Got in early with GAW miners and made about $3k profit before they went SCAM mode.

Got in early ltcgear.com and did the whole " 1 more time and im out" and lost about $3k.

All in all its been fun  Grin

Fun fact: My sisters husband was one of the guys in the room for the famous "10k bitcoin for a pizza" we laugh about that day fondly.

I don't know about bitcoin during its early years (2009 - 2014), but way back early 2015, my first time in bitcoin world, I can depend my earnings through faucets only. I mean, claiming on faucets were really worth it. I used to do it only during my spare time and as far as I remember, I'm earning a minimum of BTC0.001 per day. Unlike today, it is really hard to get that value even you spent so much of your time and effort imo because faucets already have low rewards.

I discovered bitcoin too late cause the price is high already and earning bitcoins is not easy especially in faucets, It's a waste of time if you do that now unless you have that refferal thing. How I wish I discovered bitcoin early
