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!

It is extremely interesting, innovative and the idea of being able to pay some one for services or goods in a matter of seconds anywhere in the world is what got our business involved. Over the years dealing with companies all around the globe we had lost tens of thousands of dollars in fee's and forex conversion fees from banks and institutions.

Bitcoin is simply an amazing tool

It's lucrative to those tired of being scammed by paypal. It is also more widely accepted merchant-wise when compared to LR.

I got into bitcoin because I'm a freelancer and want to offer clients as many payment options as possible.

For me seeing the rally from zero dot something to ~30 USD\BTC seemed like "hell yeah, this party will continue, I'll be filthy rich is no time!". So I bought for the first time at about $18 per btc AFTER the peak. Poor stupid old me.

As time was passing by I learned a lot of new things about all this stuff. Now I'm feeling calm like a stone and full of hope, looking for the bright future Wink

because is a pain send money to another country for a lot of fee's
because it takes days for it
because paypal sux's and they freezed my account
because the actual economy is a ponzi piramidal scheme
because bitcoin is anonnymouse
because i hate banks so strong
because i was looking for something like bitcoin for years
because we don't deserve such a corrupt state that makes richer the rich, and more poor the poor people

Might as well ease the time a little while waiting to be released from the newbie section Smiley

Feel free to post more reasons below.



Nope, first reason nailed it.

I want to try TSR, but the barrier to entry of dealing in BitCoin is pretty nutso.

I only need like, 6 or 7 BTC for my purposes, but MtGox has prohibitively high funds transfer rates, also sending money international from my bank costs like $35.

So yeah.

I also saw that BitCoinLocal thing where you can just pay cash and get coin, but meeting strangers for weird transactions, I may as well go and try to cop drugs.

Maybe you should try some other exchange.

Do you recommend any? I'd really just like to have it done through my debit card, but I guess with chargeback threat nobody deals in that way anymore.

I heard about Bitcoins when I was researching the Anonymous attacks on the US Chamber of Commerce (if I remember correctly).
I noticed a "Donate with Bitcoins" link and entered the BTC world.

Around that time I wanted to invest in Bitcoin, but due to the exchange I chose mucking up my deposit and not finding it for
2 weeks I lost out big time (this was the time of the bubble half-way through last year).
