While chatting in my mining pool's IRC, I am constantly surprised to find that many miners, the foundation on the bitcoin ecosystem, don't even use BTC for anything.
I'm a miner. I'm a speculator. I'm a merchant (well, I have some stuff for sale on http://bitcoinharbor.com/
). I found out about bitcoin about a month ago and i love it.
I have 132 transactions in my day-to-day wallet (my mining income goes to my secure wallet). Mostly, those transactions are gambling, because that's what I find fun.
How many transactions do YOU have, and what "kind" are they? Purchases, gambling, donations, etc?
