My only regret is not spending my life savings on Bitcoin back when I first learned about it, when it was going for $15 a piece.

Oh well.

Not properly looking into bitcoin when I first heard about it around januari 2011 and forgetting about it for almost 2 years...
Those would have been some cheap coins...

I put every item in stock on a -25% sale during April 1.st, not sure how bad it'll get but I am a bit anxious right now. Apart from that I guess I should of have gone full retard on bitcoin earlyer, 10/10 hindsight.

Bitcoin trinkets now on my online store: btc trinkets.com <- Bitcoin Tiepins, cufflinks, lapel pins, keychains, card holders and challenge coins.

IMHO you should never do that! It is still an experiment!

Putting 300 BTC in Bitcoinica, leveraging 10x hoping it would go up, and see some crazy dude put several thousand BTC and leverage himself 10x to go down (crashing me, and a lots of other people with it... we all got liquidated, I ended negative even... and the crazy dude if I remember well scored several thousand USD in profit).

I should have sold more bodily fluids to buy Bitcoin.

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

Almost the same here, except I mined a few coins and then forgot all about bitcoin soon after.

I will never forget my first mistake...  trusting some dude "Tawsix" and his bitcoin mining operation SIN... I lost the first 100+ coins I mined to him.

and GLBSE, but I don't blame Nefario.

Putting school first!  Never put school before HELPING TO CHANGE THE WORLD...and making yourself silly rich in the process!!!

The 'ol saying, school makes you (kids) dumb and poor, worked on me!!!  I found out about bitcoin at $0.30, I immediately knew it was an AWESOME thing.. but due to exams, and thesis work, I couldn't focus to buy/mine them... and focused on school instead... oh, of course exams were over and I started buying at $30

So, I am still poor, and REALLY STUPID!  Cheesy

No regrets though, since I don't feel this is ALL about me, this is a REAL REVOLUTION and I am glad it is ROLLING ALONG! Smiley

But instead of being a BOULDER, I am a little pebble rolling on along with it! Smiley

Bought 20BTC for $14USD April 2011.

Should have bought a thousand - I'd be able to pay off my house.

I don't think the "didn't buy more when the price was cheaper" counts... That's just obvious, and true of lots of things.

I guess mine would be leaving 5 BTC on betco.in for months when I knew it was a 2-bit (no pun) site that could get hacked. But BTC was under $5 then, so I didn't care too much. (obviously it got hacked; coins gone).

Bitcoin is the first monetary system to credibly offer perfect information to all economic participants.
