Lost about 200 BTC on the GLBSE fiasco. Some to Pirate scam bonds, some to bonds that disappeared when GLBSE disappeared, and some just because ASICS destroyed the returns. Now strictly buy and hold (except for the odd small purchase to encourage vendors).

My biggest mistake was notting getting into mining or at least mine on my PC back when I first ran across Bitcoin which was early 2011.  I loaded the mining program and starting mining. I read some article saying it could hurt my mac so I turned it off.

It was a one night thing and I was starting a new business at the time so I just forgot about it.

I wonder how many coins I could have mined back then on my mac......................

Left <2 BTC on BitFloor on a limit sell before the site got hacked.

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

biggest mistake was not getting into it in 2010/2011 when I first heard of it. I remember brushing it of as some geek nonsense. yeesh..

Thinking that bitcoin is a scam when it is really cheap (about 1$) without really trying to understand it. Years later when bitcoin become 100$, then only I start to do research and read on it Sad

Using btc.sx, I leverage traded 2 BTC's.
It was that night that Baidu announced their acceptance of Bitcoin.
The price dropped a few dollars before it continued climbing.
I didn't realize that if you hit the stop price, you lose ALL of your investment.
I still haven't recovered that back. Cry

I'd say not buying more of it when it was in it's infancy.

i knew about bitcoins since late 2011, and only until early this year did i get involved. big, wasted opportunity. i guess that's the price you have to pay by being lazy. it's also probably my fault for not having the foresight to see the potential in BTC.
