Question: What's the *real* reason you ever got into Bitcoins?
I can use this to anonymously mailorder drugs? Gimme sum!
My bitcoins make me feel so well off while wasting my welfare checks on mtgox.
You felt the need for a future movie line similar to "Hand over your wallet.dat! And be quick about it!"
Envisioning people killing each other over Satoshis 20 years from now you've never felt so ridiculously rich with 1.0 of ANYTHING in your life
I totally forgot about that mining tool running in the background until I found out that the 10k BTC it had accumulated were now worth a couple grand USD.
I still don't know what bitcoins are and how the hell they work!

I currently use it as a fun/risky investment option. Though lately I have been thinking about creating a service for the bitcoin community.

I belong into the first category it seems... I heard about bitcoin on hacker news last june and sparked by interest, particularly the silk road.

Back then I remember bitcoins going for I think ~6.70 USD.

To pay off power bills and get free heating for the winter Grin

I originally started back in June last year right before it hit $30USD/BTC and cashed out getting myself three new machines fully paid off.

I started reading about them in early 2011.  Installed a CPU miner at the time and managed to get 0.01 BTC.  I just wanted to see it work.  Once I got some, my curiosity grew about what else I could do. 

Even though I don't fully understand all of the crypto and math, it still fascinates me.
