I joined becuase I just lost my job and my computer ran all day. I remember Google doing this screensaver thing where they would use your CPU resources to compute things. I also remember that the Fold @ Home doing something similar and I said to my self... there has gotta be a service out there that pays you for your CPU resources and man was I right! Wink


Edit: in case your wondering I googled something like "Get paid for spare cpu resources" and then I found a forum that was telling people about Bitcoin(a non-bitcoin related forum)

Another interesting question: How long until you bought/mined your first coins?


Happened as fast as I could get my money transferred =)  Maybe a week via Dwolla?

I went from ignorant to curious to skeptical to highly skeptical to intrigued to utterly obsessed and convinced within about 2 hours from seeing a FB post mentioning it.

Voted 8 (joined this forum in March), but I had "heard" of it earlier, just been to lazy to follow the link at the time. Meh, missed the chance of being an early adopter that way. Wink

The Slashdot dollar bitcoin parity article is what got me started.  I was CPU mining right away but found nothing until I got my first GPU 2 weeks later.
