I started originally back in 2010/2011, but lost interest after a few months and traded away all my coin, boy do i wish i still had that wallet full of BTC now. I think it took me just over a week to get my first one, even though diff was way lower, The hardware and software had not matured much, so that was a pain(much like some of the startup alt-coins now).

Now its nearly impossible to get any ROI without significant capital investment to start mining BTC from scratch, so I spend most of time looking for the next big thing.

This time i tell myself not to loose interest, or at least hold on to my coin this time around. Hindsight = 20/20 Smiley

P.S. - long time lurker, first actual post here... lol

Not too difficult, took about 4 days as I was getting about 0.25 btc/day from 4 x 5870, this was a while ago just before ASIC's arrived

It took long enough... about an hour of mining with my old Radeon HD 5770 back in 2011. I sold it, and hundreds like it, for around $3.50 a piece. I coulda been a millionaire too Wink

I bought it from someone at LocalBitcoins for $143. So it was easy.

Bought my first coin from Bitfloor -- easy enough.

Then they shut down and kept more of my fiat for several months.

This seems to be quite common with BTC. People like to run away with your money.

Its not only with bitcoin its common in every investment. People have the tendency to get quick gains by frauding others.
