I do not send out bitcoins too often, mostly receive. When receiving my first payment from my first signature campaign about a year ago, I was very confused and nervous. I was pretty unsure of how bitcoin worked at

the time, and I was constantly checking my wallet to see if the "pending" notification would disappear. I was very unsure of what this meant, and I thought I did something wrong.

        My first time sending bitcoin was to myself in my Poloniex account, where I was looking to invest some bitcoins into an alt coin. It was pretty nerve racking, and I was scared that typing in the wrong address

would lose the bitcoins I put in for ever.

I remember my first transactions with Bitcoin, I transfer the money from my xapo wallet to my wallet on blockchain. Only 20.000 satoshi that i find it from very terrible faucets. And i had worried my little bitcoin sent as well or not, sure fear to click 'send' button. But around 10 minutes my 20.000 satoshi receives in my blockchain wallet safely.

I remember that bitcoin price was about 300$ and that it is now 3x bigger so i see really good opportunity for keeping money in our bitcoin pockets and lok them for a couple of years.

nothing, I just felt a bit excited and nervous at the same time almost the same feeling when I am receiving my first satoshi from faucets that time I was a newbie and sending a certain amount to some investments makes me feel excited and I was expecting some thing good in return and eventually become frustrated Grin it was 9 months ago if i'm not mistaken when the first time that I sent a bitcoin transaction .

I don't have a clear memory of the first time I sent my bitcoin because it was not as exciting and thrilling as the first time I received my very first bitcoin. It dated back when I first joined the bitcoin world and I had no idea of what to do so I tried those typing captchas sites. I didn't earn much but the feeling of getting only just a little amount of money had driven me crazy like I had done something great Grin

My first time was in I think 2013 as well. I think I was sending some money to a friend, and before then I had only really received money (I was trying to earn as much as possible). It's funny to look back, I checked about 10 times that the address I copied was indeed the right one, because I was so paranoid that i might lose money by accident. I kept refreshing the page until the transaction was confirmed 😀

The first time ever i did a bitcoin transaction was when i sent my bitcoins to localbitcoins.com. I was working abroad in Dubai at that time.It took nearly half an hour for the transaction to get completed. I was very much excited and eagerly waited for the result.It was during MAY 2016.The transaction amount was around 0.30 btc.I saw the transaction fees to be low when compared to other currency exchanges.

I remember vividly. It was a gaming purchase. I always wanted to buy this particular game and I purchased it with bitcoin. I loved the feeling of it.
Ever since that when I need to buy something digitally I tried to look for bitcoin instead of credit card. Its more secure and much faster. Hell I do not think anyone would use fiat if they knew how easy it is to use bitcoins.

The first time I sent money was to sold my bitcoin to my friend, it was an excited moment and i keep on checking the transaction confirmation, I checked every 5 minutes to see the confirmation, and it arrived to my friend address in 30 minutes, it was a good experience the only trouble was I need to check my friend wallet address few times to make sure I didn't make any mistake

I still remember my first transaction as I sent it to wrong address as it was my first transaction and I was bit confused and by mistake I sent it to some third party, I was fortunate enough that amount was not too big but it made me more focused and now before sending my bitcoins I check and recheck the address as now I cannot afford to loose even a single penny of it.
A lot of new bitcoin users tend to get confused when it comes to sending bitcoin for the first time but luckily for them they don’t have that much at first so it is not a big deals if they got it wrong for the first time that way they can become more cautious when it comes to bitcoin addresses and sending money.

I do not remember exactly when I made the first Bitcoin transaction, but it remembers blokchain and you can always see when it was, for that we love this technology, the immutability of the results and complete transparency in operations.

Not only the first time but every transactions I've ever made, feels something like an o**asm Cheesy especially the part when it says beep!

Wow, okay! The "beep" part is referring to the online wallet on blockchain.info, I suppose?

From the amount of enthusiasm in your post one could guess that you send and receive transactions of very high value... or you just like Bitcoin so much that an incoming transaction of 0.001 makes you go nuts.

The first time that I sent a bitcoin is when my cousin borrow some bitcoin because he needed money, I told why does he want bitcoin because I have real money to gave you, though he said he don't want and he wants bitcoin that's why I send him, I was very nervous that I did let him check his address a couple of times. It felt really cool after that and its like you really want to do it again and again.

I don't remember my first transaction sent. I do remember my first transaction received, however. Someone, I do't know who, sent me small tip of 0.0001.
It was in 2013/14 but certainly not during bitcoin high price period, so BTC back then wasn't that valuable. Still remember fondly this random act of kindness.
People rarely send any tips through Bitcoin network anymore. Fees are killing BTC tipping business.

Recently I had a quite scary experience with bitcoin transaction. On Tuesday morning, I sent 0.016 btc with preset default Electrum fee (it was 50 satoshi/byte at the moment). Then after 48 hours of waiting and tracking my transaction on blockchain.info, it suddenly dissapeared and I got a message "Transaction rejected by our node. Reason: Transaction was previously accepted but has been pruned from our database.". I thought the funds should come back to my wallet, but after 72 hours, nothing has changed. I needed to send that amount, so I decided to send it again in another transaction with much higher fee (140sat/byte). After I sent the second transaction, the first one suddenly changed and it showed I have 1 confirmation. I went to check it to blockchain.info and my first transaction was there again, despite the fact they wrote it was removed from their database. Then, after 10mins, both of the transactions were confirmed.. Huh Oh bitcoin, you make my hair go grey. Tongue Roll Eyes

Do you remember what it felt like the very first time you sent out a Bitcoin transaction to another address in your life? For some, it might have been an easy thing to do, especially for the geeks who were here when Bitcoin was born and it had not been valued and traded against fiat currency as following soon after, yet for others it can be very confusing to get things right.

Were you filled more with happiness, excitement or fear when you clicked that 'send' button? And in which year was it when that happened? Did it it turn out just fine, did your transaction arrive where intended?
Yeah I remember, it was not that long ago, 18 months ago and to be honest I was nervous since sending to such a weird address, full of letters and number was new to me, I remember checking the address over and over again and finally I sent the bitcoin, it was not much bitcoin, it was something close to 50mBTC.
