As the title says..

Off hand i would say it's either two camps (or a combo of both)
Which would be..

- You came to profit.
- You came to support a currency.
- You came to support a currency and hopefully profit in the process.

There may be other answers which is why i am asking.
Of course i have generalized this as much as possible.

I hope to get people thinking because it seems like 99.99% of people think they are "investors"
In what ? 7,000+ ANN topics ? ..hopping from coin to coin for profits each year ?
If there is actual real "currency" supporters here i have to guess this profiteer mentality is vulgar to them as it is to me.

If so why do i hear nothing from them ?
The only time the Monero guys show up is to whine about Dash for example.
Never to say point out how LEOcoin is a scam etc.

Too busy pushing Steem 2.0 or some other gimmick profit scheme ?

To be honest, if that is so pathetic reason but it's more like over than 50% are dominating by the hunters,  Cheesy and investors for what? too many in every ANN thread are discussing the bounty,bounty, and bounty.

Though I first came to hide my money, I then learned about earning and that's why I come so frequently.

I think there is no point of hiding that (at least me) I came here for profits.
Idea of being paid for writing stuff seamed so easy at the beginning, I was enthusiastic and fresh with bitcoins so it kinda was easy to make even 20posts a day.
Now with more knowledge, day by day I found myself struggling to post something.
Don't want to be considered spammer or just talk out of my ass...
Any way, I'm still here in order to catch fresh earning occasions, ergo profits and maybe help newcomers. Also, recently started to shear my humble profits with others in form of simple giveaways. I must say that that activity gives me certain amount of pleasure, so this is another reason why I'm here. Its all very fun stuff and to be honest this is very advanced branch of IT and my narcissistic ego takes proud of that as well Wink good to be here just for sake.

for the drama.

gox, crypsy, pirateat40, GAW, BFL, sooo many others. cant keep track any more.

one in a thousand posts has a nugget of information.

sarcasm aside, the are some good folks here that provide humor, games, tips, services, hardware, software, firmware, and general good info.

for me, making money is a side effect, although its a really really good one.

EDIT: also to be in on part of a history making event.. "yes young padawan, i was there when BTC was $2 USD and mined on GPUs.."

to profit, but my initial greed has led me down some interesting paths. now it's mainly for entertainment. despite all of the shit that constantly goes on we are part of something that'll genuinely change the world eventually.

[Update]
Seems i should point out profit is profit.. regardless of the method you are trying to use to achieve the same goal.
And when i said "here" i did not mean this forum but the Crypto scene in general.

Also the jab at Monero was to point out how these so called crews of guys want to seem like they have lots of cred yet they only pop up when they can argue about something to make their account look smarter here or..
When they feel they need to protect their own scheme or.. attack the competition.
Which all is derived and linked to their profits.. bags.

[Titanic Greed]
Crypto has always been driven by the majority.
They hold ALL the power and steer the crypto-ship.
If the crowd says scams are good lets support them because it gives us Bitcoin profits.. then it shall be.

[The Hindenberg was a bad idea]
Problem is i warned you all of it endlessly for years.
One is that the big boys would becoming i said mid to late 2013.. i was right !
For one thing Big Companies were sniffing at the crypto ass like i predicted clearly.
I also predicted the scammers would be in full force with unheard of levels of corruption and manipulation.
And bingo ..they are here !

[Human Dirt]
All this did was attract the worlds worst people from Ransomware makers to LEOcoin "MLM" scammers with big banks accounts etc.
And once you have that level of power you can setup one of hell of a scam force.
Notice how the old little guys got steam-rolled like the BlockNET douche bags ?
They did not stand a chance when Butters and his ETH crew stomped in.
Both ICO scheme's have about the same usefulness and yet one is 1,000x more popular.
Why ?
Because ETH was pumped and manipulated and someone is STILL keeping walls on the price etc.

They are here and they do it because you the majority support them.. via what ever method you choose.
But now the big boys are here in force in the shadows.. how many ICO scam coins have a "Foundation" ?
You realize all those FIAT veteran scammers that were already in the financial markets with their suits & ties and large bank rolls are NOW funding crypto scams right ?
And excuse me but isn't that who we were trying to GET AWAY FROM ?

All you guys did was create a lawless environment for them to take over.
The moved from the traditional money scene over to crypto.
And best of all they can stay in the shadows and operate now in an almost always lawless scene.
In contrary to a scene where IPO's would be regulated.

[Warren "Spoetnik" Buffet]
How did Spoetnik predict this was going to happen far in advance ? (I predicted everything from cloning to GOX/Cryptsy to where we are now)
Simple i seen the flood of users who all showed up here to profit..
First thing i did was decided to liquidate as much BTC as i could at $1,000.00 per coin..
Knowing full well you would all start GOX'ing each other and mass cloning etc .. fucking up the scene.

I think Cryptsy Re-Adding "ORB" was the turning point roughly for me.

I watched you guys show up and ask every few seconds.. how do i get money from my bank account to Cryptsy on their chat box.
I rolled my damn eyes.. i would never spend my real money on this bullshit.
But i made 12 thousand dollars from rubbing 0 cents & 0 cents together.
Using the CPU & GPU i already had when i came here via my web browser.
Nothing invested and pure profit.. 12k worth roughly.

I cashed out because i seen which way the wind was blowing guys and i knew damn well what was coming and i was 100% correct to a T !

[Smell your Coffee]
You BETTER ask your self why you came and WHAT you are doing here and if it is morally acceptable.
Because you can not escape the consequences of your actions.
FINCEN did in fact fine Ripple for example.

What you the majority have done is continue to create an ever increasing risky situation.
You are not "investing" in fuck all.. you are doing extreme gambling with MLM's and HYIP's and Scams.
When you lower the bar to the ground shooting sparks all over there will be fires and you WILL be burned.

Just think how many people are smarter and more rich than you and control the rules with money.
You are playing a Whales game where they make up the rules as they go along.
Run an exchange and want to take all the money ? no problem which method do you want to use ?

NOTE: LEOexchange claims to have almost 50,000 users  Cheesy

You the individually powerless combined hand over all your power to rich and shady scammers 24/7.
In exchange for small chump change scam profits paid in BTC.
You sell yourselves short and throw out your integrity for a few Satoshi's.

And i said since 2013 it's sad really because of what could have been.

[Get Your ROI on !!!]
The reality is if you came here ONLY to profit then you should not be here (in Crypto)
Your presence combined with the other 99% amount to making this whole entire Altcoin Scene into a giant MLM scam.. a ponzi / pyramid scheme of sorts for trading centralized shitcoin ICO tokens on govt controlled / compliant exchanges.. There is no such thing as legit "investing" in Crypto. That would be Profiteering.

[Crypto has AIDS]
All we have done since 2013 is attract far more scammers and bigger ones and create a super market for Ransomware and fostered a scene where every single person is here to make 50 cents off of any scheme coin that will give them profit.. scam or not.

In other words you the crowd collectively fucked up Crypto bad !
You broke it and it will not be getting fixed and.. the cops are coming (or already here)

[Investards]
You will sleep in your beds one way or the other.. it's karma.. it's the way of life.
Govt controlled corporate greed is here and in full force and you are all fine with it.
..just so long as you keep getting a cut of the profits.

PS:
Don't forget to cry "Free Market" while you trade coins at Coinbase (who handed over info to the US govt)
Coinbase helped take down KickassTorrents.. which was a decentralized beacon of Freedom.
You all have no problem supporting them and their ratting out users to the US fed's.
Or supporting the corporate scammer coins posted there such as Ethereum or LEOCoin etc.

YOU ARE LYING FULL OF SHIT BULLSHITTING HYPOCRITES TALKING SHIT HERE 24/7

The US housing recession that affected the world until this day is the same as all this crap..
But who is going to "bail out" Crypto when it nose dives ?

I agree with Spoetnik, seen it happen with Gulden recently, the one of maybe 5 real legit coins which I have supported from the beginning. People are so caught up in greed that they can't allow a project to breathe. The scams and non scams are treated the same way... if I was the Gulden team I would of quit and gone to work for a bank building one of their blockchains but luckily they not me and have more patience.

If given too much freedom to operate with no transparency or legality i think even myself would be tempted.

I admit it would be very tempting to walk off with a million dollars !

I have believed firmly for years that guys running GOX or Cryptsy start out with honest intentions.
But when things go sour and markets dip and they get nervous and in trouble etc
all of a sudden the good guy is turned bad.

Which is a key reason i do not support the ICO's. (i would support them maybe if they were regulated)

I also would like to see exchanges repel govt requests and run with transparency.
Guys i am not just trying to rain FUD down i am saying look around.. Suits & Ties with corporate greed are feeding the kids with lunch money ICO schemes and the exchanges are just a new extension of this.

We have in fact stepped far in reverse with decentralization etc since i came here mid-2013.
We have problems and each of us little guys have the power to take back our scene..
Let's do it before it's too late.

The scammy useless "for profit" crap is not going to help adoption of a crypto-currency.
And by association makes Bitcoin look bad as well.

And yeah i too also come for the entertainment and the fact any time a Bitcoin killer could be posted.
Tired off profiteers mouthing me off saying why are you here (in crypto) ? when insulting their profiteer ways.
What we are ONLY allowed here if we want to make money off shitcoins ? LOL
