I still haven't gotten my first coin. I'm hoping to get some via person-to-person trade, since buying them via Dwolla -> other service now takes 30 days; I don't have 30 days!

I might just start mining them with a computer lab  Roll Eyes

Dailybitcoins, I was like thats impossible when first hearing about no central checking for double spends in bitcoin, bitcoincharts was offline some time before if I remember correctly, but when I finally saw slow price descend instead of fast crash I knew it sorta works, so free money why not.

I scammed some sucker by reversing a PayPal transaction after they sent me the coins.

If you are serious, this warrants a scammer tag. Prevention is the key to a solution.

I mined my first ones. The rest have been from sales and investments.

I've yet to acquire my first bitcoin.  My money is stuck in Dwolla and I'm waiting on the 30 day transaction restriction to be up.  I think this technology is amazing, but I don't see it being widely adopted until the ease of transfer is made simpler so that your average user can get their hands on bitcoins easily.  I'd imagine that in a few years, it will be easy enough for my mother to do it, but right now, it's a bit confusing for people who aren't as tech savvy as us Smiley

My first bitcent was after dabbling in some CPU/GPU mining...

But soon after, my very first bitcoin was from a fellow Canadian brother offering the convenience of eInterac (EMT) $CAD for $BTC at $5/BTC. Sounds like a great rate by average rates these days ($9/BTC) eh!

Purchased my first BTC, but got into mining very shortly after. Went from maybe 150 mhash/s to 1300 mhash/s in about a month, and in a week I'll be closer to 1600-1700 mhash/s.

Also dabbling in LTC as well!

I got mine by mining with my desktop a few months back, but I decided to stop because I felt like the payout wasn't worth the time and energy spent.
