Hello all.
I am probably what most would consider a microscopic fish (it would be disrespectful to the small fish to lump me in with them) in this cryptocurrency world and definitely a late-comer. I know just enough to get by, but feel like my head is spinning around as I try to digest some of the technical aspects of it all. I am not a trader and don't know that I will ever grow into one. I am not a miner, as I know just enough to know that I don't have the technical skill or initial bankroll to set up and maintain an efficient mining rig. I'm not really an investor, as I don't have any sizable block of disposable cash that I can dump into any one currency or another.  I am basically relegated to making a small purchase of < $25 worth of Bitcoin here and there and tapping some online faucets while I watch Netflix or ESPN.  But before I started draining faucets for satoshi, I was clicking PTC ads for pennies - and pennies add up to dollars... so I guess I am conditioned for it!

It was actually last September when one of the PTC sites I use no longer paid out with PayPal, but offered a Bitcoin payout option, that I finally decided to sit down and figure out what this cryptocurrency was all about. I converted a $20 payout into Bitcoin and bought another $5 or $10 and watched it fluctuate for a few weeks.  After a few more PTC payouts and finding a couple of trustworthy and stable faucets I have about $100 in value. Of course that was a good bit higher a few weeks ago, but I'm not all that concerned.

I've been lurking here at bitcoin talk for a few months - reading a little bit here and there when I have the spare time. I'm still not sure yet how much I can or will contribute here -- especially when it feels like the equivalent of a first grader talking theoretical physics with Einstein! I'm sure I'll be asking a lot more questions than providing productive answers, but I figured it was time to post an introduction and see if I am able to take this anywhere.

It is great to see a genuine guy here, writing honestly and factually about himself and how he has got were he has.

I wish him all the luck in the world and wish I could be half as dedicated as he is. Truly starting small and prepared to work to grow slowly.

I admire him!

I am probably what most would consider a microscopic fish (it would be disrespectful to the small fish to lump me in with them) in this cryptocurrency world and definitely a late-comer. I know just enough to get by, but feel like my head is spinning around as I try to digest some of the technical aspects of it all. I am not a trader and don't know that I will ever grow into one.

I think that my start and your start looks the same here in the forum, I started myself with PTC sites, a lot of them and transfered just 10 $ worth of bitcoin from them to pay my fees here, to start a real deal (I am sorry of how much time I lost on PTC + faucets but you learn from your mistakes).As a start you can go for any airdrop(free tokens distributed for promoting a project) you see here.Learn everything about crypto, because knowledge is power, keep your private key safe everytime(maybe just note it on a piece of paper).Good luck ! If you have any more questions just pm me or write down here in the thread.

.....and see if I am able to take this anywhere. 

I think you are already good to go. You got 3 Merits for your starting post, and the forum is all shouting about Merits these days. I'm sure you have already heard and read about the system (Merit System) so I won't go to that side. All I want to say here is what you have been doing is what all of us do when we start something new. No Legendary member of this forum have had the same experience or rank from the day they got into this crypto train, but they all earned them with the time. So just keep asking reasonable questions, and you will surely learn the things you need to in no time.

P.S: Welcome to the forum.

No encouragement needed, I will remain a member.  No promises on how often I will read or post, but I will stick around.   Grin  Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone!
