Well. It seems that yesterday was my 6th Year Anniversary on www.bitcointalk.org. April 13th, 2013 was the day I tripped over bitcoin
after doing a Google Search. By the end of the week, I was $8.3k in. (Butterfly Labs, one of the few who did as a dumb newbie a year or so later
get my refund...barely....a week later the SEC raided BFL...damn I was dumb)

I digress. But if only I knew what I knew then, etc thus my current efforts to 'attic mine' crap I would otherwise die with. So selling the crap out of my attic and put into
BTC and crypto. Hoping for 1 more at least 7x price increase. Have to have some skills after 6 years into BTC and a guy can hope. Keeps at least some 'dust' coming in.

Anyway, just made a quick poll. I am unsure when www.bitcointalk.org even 'launched' (if anyone knows?)

So the poll may not go back far enough. Let me know the day and year www.bitcointalk.org launched and I will 'tweak' the poll.

Take the poll and post below. Also, post on how you found out about BTC and any NEWB stories and also how you found www.bitcointalk.org below

Thus this thread should make a 'cringe-worthy' read of NEWB's falling into the crypto universe. I know that my foray into BTC was less than sophisticated.

Again, at least take the poll.

thanks

brad


edit: found this https://www.freevaluator.com/ seems www.bitcointalk.org is worth a bit of $$$. Says the site has been around 8 years.
So it was started in 2011.

Damn, that is a lot of $$$ for a domain name!


edit #2

Seems the www.bitcointalk.org forum was started in November 22nd, 2009. I will fix the poll.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5129680.msg50522659#msg50522659

My Thanks to TryNinja https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=557798 who
posted the info below and the above link.

So from what we know from the above: www.bitcointalk.org started November 22nd, 2009 by Satoshi Nakamoto https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satoshi_Nakamoto

I joined almost 3 years ago. I found out about this thread thru my brother who was also on this forum. This is where I gathered info about cryprocurrency and soo  found out, bounties, airdrops, ICOs and a lot more. This forum had helped me a lot. Let's see if we can dig when was this forum created since I my self has no idea too.

It actually opened to the public in 2009.

November 22 of 2009 to be more precise. Almost 10 years.
Are you sure about that date? admin account "u=1"[Date Registered:   November 18, 2009, 01:12:33 AM] Has Satoshi created it?

The forum was opened to the public on Nov 22.

I joined almost 1 year. and in this forum it really amazed me and continued to follow the news in the forum. I often follow the bounty that is there and it really makes me take some time to work on and get results

We've all been there.

It is treacherous being a Newbie back in the day with crypto. (hell, probably still is. And I am too clueless to see the latest dangers)

As an aside to Satoshi starting bitcointalk. Looks like the fake satoshi (Craig Wright) is in for a lot of pain.

https://twitter.com/PeterMcCormack/status/1117448742892986368

Anyway. Looks like he has some folk that wishes to give him his day in court to prove he is Satoshi.

(Ancient Chinese Curse: May you live in "Interesting Times")

Anyway, we could clear this up quickly on my small little thread here if Satoshi https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=3 would simply post here and take the poll.

 I'm sure he will get right on that. Smiley

Anyway, back to your newbie stories on how you found BTC and when you started on www.bitcointalk.org

I'm a year and a half since I joined bitcointalk. I became inactive last year because I don't seem to get some payments in here. Even joining a lot of bounties, it all ends up as a scam for me. That's why I'm just joining on signature campaign that are bitcoin payment not bounties anymore.

I have been around for around two years. I joined when the Bitcoin exchange rates were around $1,000 per coin and the main reason why I joined was to earn some coins through signature campaigns and bounties. Have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here!

I was fortunate enough to join in 2017 before the massive bull run really took off, but that makes me a relative fresh fish here compared to the OGs. It's a shame too, because I was following bitcoin back in 2011 when it was $11 - I just was unsure about its future and saw it as very speculative. It seemed like a cool technology, nonetheless. What caught my attention was its use by talented blackhat hackers.

Although I knew about bitcoin since 2014, but this year is my 4th year in this forum.
Dont you think it is better to move this topic to Meta Board, as it is forum related topic while this board is for general bitcoin discussion?

As to making coin...I am now out of mining and am 'attic mining' ...selling stuff in the attic I would otherwise 'die with' and putting it into crypto.

Hey, its something. IF on the hope BTC goes back to the ATH I will look like a genius. IF BTC goes 'tulips' I will have an empty attic and turn it into

a Rec Room and my house goes-up $15k in value or past the ATH in price again. Win/Win. It is boring as heck to sell crap on eBay though. The pictures and eBay itself is much easier,

it is digging the crap out and finding a box. The cheap $50 postage mail scale works dandy. Boing....but this is the only way. Attic Mining. That I can still 'home mine'

in a sense and at least generate some dust BTC.

I suppose you also could go to estate sales or rummage sales on the weekends and flip stuff thru eBay to BTC as well.

Anyway, I have to have faith that BTC will go up another 2 to 7 times and this 'dust' attic mining project would all work out.

Also, for simplification, I just eat the fees and the shipping and add that to the BTC dust purchases after the sale. Worth it not to get into accounting

on this kinda stuff....just move it all to BTC with the majority of the $$$ made (or I should say all) with shipping and handling on eBay matched into BTC

for each sale. Made $900 bucks (including the s/h and fees) into BTC dust. I also put it at the tail end of my HODL BTC address...so I'm not tempted to

blow it. As it works now, each sale is the LAST BTC I could get to ..to sell....so all will come out ...if I ever sell this dust as Long Term Capital Gains.

This may be a 'crummy' angle, but gives me the illusion that I'm at least 1/2 assed getting some BTC and cleaning out my attic!

I joined bitcointalk originally back in 2014. Stayed till around 2017 then left. Sometime in 2018 some russian hacker stole my account. From 2019 i have been using this new account. So all in all i have been a member here for around ~5 years.

Amazing. 54% joined Bitcointalk in 2016 and in the earlier years. So I assume these guys have already made a lot of profit and are probably holding to some coins for another possible bullrun!

So, 46% are probably underwater if they didn't sell during the parabolic climb.  Tongue
