Sorry for the off topic but is there any chance that your legs can perform again?...

Thanks for asking is much better as it was 7 years ago. I am still sick and this shit stays with you until the end. I was running marathons 20 or even 50km when I was young. Now if I can run for 50 meters I will be happy. I can move by myself, of course, I am tired pretty fast and I have a lot of pain in my legs always. Still taking pills every day and have to wear special healing socks for entire legs. Now I have social cover here and all insurances needed. Medical care here is on a very high level so doctors are doing all what possible. I still hope it will be better someday. I don't know a new pill or something  Cheesy.

Like I thought after great start this thread lost all activity when was moved to off-topic section.

I don't think that this is the proper section for this thread.

So much mug in the meta section that sometimes I wish to read something different.

I will wait for a little and if indeed there will be no activity at all I will move this topic to BTC discussion section and hope that mods don't remove it again.

Off topic section has no frequent readers as other boards. As I said I am here only because my thread was moved. I never come to this section if I don't have to.

My story posted in Beginners & Help board, it has been there for months. I think you should consider to move your topic into that board, that looks fitted with core purpose of the thread. Newbies might learn lots of things and might be motivated by your thread.
Promotion with merit system and new rank requirements. It's possible.

Congrats to ranking up mate, I think we have a similar story as well, I was about to rank up to Hero prior to the introduction of the merit system. At first I was a bit disappointment, however I learn and go by the system and up to know I'm still a senior and trying to rank up into a Hero. Maybe I will get lucky this year and achieved that. It will be a big accomplishment on my end.

I was in the IT sector, unfortunately, I was laid off by the company in 2015 so it's really hard for me to bring food in the table. Working offline as a freelance was good but it was not enough at the competition is really hard that time. Luckily at the beginning of 2017, I encounter this site, so being in IT make me curious about what this crypto is all about and then learn that at the side line, you can earn bitcoin. So I did everything to understand crypto and how the community works. And then those precious bitcoin I earn was used for trading. So it is a life saver for me as it gives me financial financial freedom, specially the crypto boom in 2017.

So it was also a difficult journey, I did also take the risk of working outside of my country, travel to Canada with just a visitors visa, trying to get some luck to be able to hire, unfortunately though 9/11 happen, so I have no choice but to go back and start my journey. Find good jobs, laid off in one of the worst economic meltdown in 2008. Land a job in 2009, lost again, re-hire by the same company in 2009 then finally for the last time they let me go for good in 2015. But again, thank God that I found crypto and bitcoin in 2017 and now I would say that my life has turn 360 degrees. (I have an off-line business too!!!).

Thank you for sharing your story, I'm sure it will give inspiration to others as well.  Grin

Great story Baofeng, thanks for sharing. Is just hard to imagine how big impact crypto has on so many lives. Just impossible to stop this revolution at this time.

I can only hope that BTC will shoot to 100.000$ with this bull run and we all finish financially free.

This Is such a great opportunity and I always liked the concept of the wealth redistribution with BTC.

I will read another encouraging story, starting to be addicted to Grin. Share your story, please if you have one!

I was the guy poking fingers at the crazy people who thought this "Monopoly" money was real. Back then nobody wanted to touch Bitcoin, because it was still illegal in most countries. I was at a party when I struck up a conversation with a guy that was introduced to me as the "Bitcoin Guy" and I already knew about this, so we clicked instantly.

He explained the full concept without all the FUD and misinformation and it was like someone switched on a light inside my head! I started buying coins and selling assets to buy more coins, because I saw the bigger picture. Well, the price took a huge nose dive and I panicked and sold some of those coins <newbie mistake>!

I forgot some coins on a paper wallet and when the price suddenly went up, sold those coins for a massive profit and kept some money to buy on the dip again. A lot of that profit was used to kill loads of small jackals that kept me in the mouse wheel. I am out of the rat race now and I can breath a lot easier with most of my debt being paid off now.  Wink

It's still fine though because you ranked up to hero member from senior member. My bitcointalk forum history is not good when I started here because i'm still newbie (newly created account) which I don't have much knowledge or still learning about cryptocurrency and the forum and few days later merit is implemented which gives me more headache at that time but I still doing my best to learn slowly.

... I was at a party when I struck up a conversation with a guy that was introduced to me as the "Bitcoin Guy"...

I can remember when back in 2011, I was once such a "Bitcoin Guy" at a party, but nobody wanted to listen to me.
I was already mining from some time and was really excited about BTC, so thought it would be great to spread the word because I knew, this is revolutionary and will be a big one day.
That was the missing part of the internet for me. Literally, nobody wanted to talk about this after, I started the discussion.

Somebody said: "again a scam, how could you get real money for running a laptop, just think about this".
I tried to convince them, but the discussion was already over and I was left alone with my BTC. Some time ago, I met one of those people and the first thing, he said to me was: "How do I regret that I didn't listen to you as you talked about Bitcoins, how much were they 50 cents back then?".

I remember that I told them to invest only 500 euro in BTC and to forget about it for a few years, but nobody did it. I wish I have such a friend in 2009 when BTC just started.

For every story like yours there are is one where someone lost all their bitcoins or got hacked and ended up losing a fortune.  Be grateful for what you have and remember that health will always top wealth in terms of importance.

I understand what you mean and respect that, but don't believe this bullshit that one can live and be happy without money and the only thing that matters is the health or love  Wink.

Of course, both are important but try to stay healthy or in good mental condition without money. Try to keep your love when you are broke. Mission impossible I know I was there.

I know literally hundreds of people who will be very happy and healthy if they can afford expensive treatments. Many will be in a lot better mental condition if they could pay the rent and other bills on time.

Sometimes I am so angry when I hear this, but luckily in the last few years, I haven't heard it very often.

Of course, both are important but try to stay healthy or in good mental condition without money. Try to keep your love when you are broke. Mission impossible I know I was there.

Sometimes I am so angry when I hear this, but luckily in the last few years, I haven't heard it very often.



There are still people living in the world without money, they live off the land with what nature provides. Money is just a way to keep all of us under control, is is their ultimate weapon against us.   If you weren't able to keep your love because of money then it wasn't true love.

Also I know many wealthy people that have committed suicide.

I do not agree, but I will not explain why from personal reasons.

...I know many wealthy people that have committed suicide.

Because they definitely went bankrupt  Grin

Everything depends on context too I believe. All of them are important and play roles in your lives. I probably know a little of what wwzsocki went through, and I doubt you can simply call it 'not true love'. It's a complex thing, not about true or not. Anything that relates to another person is always complex.

But of course, money is not everything. That being said, collecting satoshis is a good hobby.

My story:

I joined the forum since late of third quarter 2017, and I am a Full Member when merit system came to us.
Honestly, before the merit system started, my post quality is lower than average, I meant low quality. However, with motivation from both merit system and rank up procedure, I tried to learn more (read forum rules, helpful guides), then contributed more to the forum via my posts, and threads.
By now, I have 314 merits in total, and I received enough merits (150) to rank up from a Full Member to a Senior Member.
From now on, my next rank is Hero Member, that is too far, but I feel I have become a more contrusctive user in the forum over last 12 months.
There are some of my contributions recent months:
[TIPS] to avoid pyramid quotes (for Newbies)
[TIPS] to avoid plagiarism
Tools for managers to check quality of posts (both merited & unmerited posts)
Guideline on posting images (with size adjustments), hyperlinks
Collections for someone who would like to improve English skills
Collection of comprehensive guides on identify and avoid scam projects
1 merit per applicant who find qualifying posts or topics on Scam Related Issues
[Suggestion] Rules on Animated Images should be changed

...I joined the forum since late of third quarter 2017...

I have read your story and a few of your posts and I see that you are struggling (like me) with the English language and especially the grammatic.

There is a tool which is free and will do magic for you and correct almost all grammatic, spelling and interpunction errors in each text you are writing, on almost every page, on the internet.

This is Grammarly and is totally free. Of course, there is better, paid version, but you don't need it. Grammarly works as an extension in browsers or stand-alone program.

You will be amazed, how good Grammarly is and it will take your English skills to another level. Only few seconds is needed to download the extension and start to work without any settings.

Just download and it will start doing its magic.

After some pondering; I have concluded that Bitcointalk members can be grouped in 4 distinct categories:

A - crypto enthusiasts eager to learn more about blockchain technology and also passionate about the idea of decentralized currency

B - people who like the idea of decentralized currency; but don't have time/interest/background to learn much more than basic knowledge needed to effortlessly use cryptocurrency

C - people who are here solely for income from bounty campaigns (those people are usually from very poor countries and I don't judge them because their economic situation is often the result of "effort" of rich countries)

D - spammers, FUD-sters, trolls, etc.

This is a pretty reasonable breakdown. Like you, I started off as B (I was a lurker for about 6 months before that), then I quickly moved into A. However, I did spend some time being a troll in D, but I think my intentions were good. Not getting into it immediately for the money (or shit tokens) is a sign of good faith that you're hear to do some learnin' and contribute, which separates you from 90% of other noobs which immediately launch into a career of mindless shitposting. Best of luck to you.

I don't always know where to put myself if these were the options, I explained before how I get into BTC, short vers --> play poker for more then 15years, did all the different cash games, tournaments etc but also organised a "HOME" game.
@some point a fella dropped in cause he heard from a friend we were playing.... Now he didn't really was looking for a game but more fore a fun place, smoke a blunt, chill place, play some poker (stakes were not his usual high, i also played higher but it was a fun game etc), now he was an online king in HU playing with no question the BEST from Belgium @ that time and probably a TOP spot worldwide, "HU playing" but he discovered very early the BTC play sides and crushed them all "literally".
of-course he made all in BTC and HODLed as that was his main goal for winning.
Now he was playing @the live tables and lost a bit, if he needed to pay € he had to change BTC of-course and he didn't like to make those BTC-sells etc

Then it happened, i didn't knew anything of that guy and he asked me if he would lose its ok to pay me in BTC and i pay the winner of the game.

me---> what is A BTC?? anno when the price went from 360-ish to ATH "he always repeat i'm the luckiest ever to be introduced @that time"
he ---> highly intelligent guy explained me and provided me everything to handle and so on

then he lose ---> pay, all went good, lucky as i was "i was the winning guy"

then the game changed "No more HOME games with much peeps" only me, him and a select group of peeps playing online for BTC to each other

What i wanna say= i didn't ever hear the name BTC or WO-thread before that single guy, and he introduced me to this world so well so good, always took care for me and learned me so much, i'm absolutely no BTC-tech expert guy, but i no for damn sure he is, i would put myself in CATEGORY B, with the willing to learn all there is to know about BTC-)but i'm just not a good computer guy surely no programmer etc, what i am from CATEGORY A= an absolute crypto enthusiasts....... but when those guys talking about technical stuff then yeah sometimes i lose it and can't follow Roll Eyes
of-course my longterm perspective is what it needs to be to be a BTC'er Smiley

as of today we still play our thing and i learn more and more cause of him and cause of being here, then why am I here, obviously to learn, mostly active @the WO, but also cause its a bit of a chill place were nobody cares if i go OT sometimes and yeah that maybe happens to often Roll Eyes but then again everybody there likes to have a good laugh and the humor down there is pretty good, I also like to share some news there that crosses my path etc

so me = MIX A and B

and i think its better to have some Merit system then no Merit system, as I don't only use it as when i think something = of high quality, I also like to use it when I think something is good humor as for THX as when I see somebody is posting something with best intentions etc


BTW@ OP "QuestionAuthority" .......... long time no see :-/

Thanks for your story, great read. Of course, I have awarded your post with merit and wait for more such inspirational stories in this thread.

I have a couple of merits left for this purpose, so share your story and maybe, would be merited if the quality, will be high enough or the story, will be original and breathtaking.

I will start from the birth of my account which is September 2017 when my friend introduces me this forum and said to me that I need to create an account here so I did. He taught me on how to earn money here thru bounty campaigns and yes, I'm a newbie at that time and what I did is to increase my activity while finding some bounty campaigns with the help of others. I can't say that I'm a shitposter at that time but I can say that my post is decent enough even I'm a newbie Cheesy. Time passes by and my posting is improving although I'm not as constructive as other users here because English is not my main language and I'm not that fluent in English.

Cut story short, I spend the next months of 2017 and 2018 finding bounties and earning money thru it although getting rewards in bounties is very hard at that time I managed to withdraw some of my rewards in bounty campaigns to buy phone, desktop and others. When the merit has implemented here, I'm a Full Member and until now I'm a full member but I don't care. What is important for me is I CAN WEAR AN AVATAR!!! Cheesy

Although I spend most of the time in this forum finding bounties, I didn't forget reading some threads here and luckily I got some merit sharing important information to others especially newbie people. 57 Merits maybe is low for others especially those who are contributing so much here but..... OK Cheesy.

I will share a bit of my personal experience here. I graduated with Bachelors Degree in 2017 and after 2 months after graduating, I found a job in our town. At that time, I don't know about crypto that much so I worked as an employee and my daily rate is around 5-6$ (3rd world country). Maybe for other countries, this is a small value but for me it is not that high but at the same time not that low. I'm an employee for 4 months in 2017 (September - December) and the first 4 months of 2018 (January - April) and after that I quit.

While working, I'm just browsing here on this forum and can't stop thinking something. What if I stopped working and focus on this (bounty campaigns etc.). This sounds weird but for 4 months, I always thinking about being an employee and bounty campaigns. After thinking, I decided that I focused on bounty campaigns. To be honest, I don't want to ordered around too. I hate getting ordered by higher people.

This is the weirdest decision I made in my life. To stop working and focus on campaigns here on the forum. After quitting, I'm always browsing bounties section and services section to find signature campaign but most of the time I'm on services because I want to earn Bitcoin at that moment. I spend weeks browsing and browsing until I saw open slots in signature campaigns (Bitcoin). Fast forward, I was accepted in Yolodice in around May - June 2018 I think. Almost 1-2 months after I quit my job.

At that moment, Bitcoin is going down slowly so my weekly payment is very low at that time but I stayed because I believe that Bitcoin will rise anytime soon and it really did this year. I didn't say to anybody that I'm having a monthly payment here since nobody in our house knows even Bitcoin - only me.

Until now, I'm still on Yolodice and I didn't stop because what I'm getting here right now is x3 as much as I get from being an employee here in our town. My monthly salary on being an employee is around $100 only but here, it is x2-x3. Maybe some are saying here "Get a decent Job and Save money blah blah blah". I don't believe in them. I want to work on our home and not working 8 hours a day being a slave.

At this moment, I'm just spending my time here in the forum and creating some videos on my Youtube Channel and I'm happy with what I'm doing. Although one of my family said to me that "Go work as an employee blah blah", I don't like it because aside from higher money that I get here I'm also happy with what I'm doing.

This forum changed my mindset. After graduating, my mindset is "Go to school, Get a Decent Job. Work in a huge company. Be a slave". When I find a way to earn here, my mindset changed slowly and I want to work now without getting ordered. Maybe some are saying "You're just here to earn blah blah". Hmmmmm that is my second reason but my primary reason is to learn how the crypto works that is why I always read here on this forum.

I know some here have decent jobs right now and they are getting paid huge amounts of money monthly. I think what I can share is, its better if you have your own business rather than be employed. Its better if you are invested in different investments than be employed.

At this moment, I'm saving my earnings from my Signature campaign for the future. I'm buying some Altcoins that I will hold for the future. I'm also exchanging some of it to fiat for the expenses here in the house. I don't want to be an employee anymore. I want to earn money with the help of my laptop now.

This is my short (and useless Cheesy) story of my life and the forum. How did the forum changed my mindset Smiley. Thanks
