So today is my round date birthday - 30th. I`ve decided to share a bit my last 4 years with cryptocurrencies - and of course Bitcoin which is the main and best one.

The story won`t be long but maybe will motivate somebody or.. whatever. Just i feel such date should have something extra done than usual drinking and partying.
Please also don`t scream for typos or so - im not native english speaking, so if you love perfect english.. take some handkerchief to stop bleeding from your eyes Smiley

I got into BTC in 2010 when the main faucet of bitcoin [propably also 1st one] was giving 1-1,5BTC to everybody without any checks, later the yadded that it was 1BTC per gmail account.
My friend who introduced me to bitcoin back then said we should but loads and we will be rich one day. So we did buy some numbers at 4$, the nwhen they jumped to 20$ - we were like - OMG, what a profit - sold alot.
Later on it dropped again to 5 or 10$, so i forgot of my wallet and had it somewhere on some old hdd. There was topic on the forum with other altcoins but i seen no real reason for them to exist - if BTC is so small, why to make clones?! That was my logic back then.

So years passed [literally!] and i had no idea whats up with the BTC community till one day at some forum of my other interests somebody wrote - BTC is at 200$. After some hardcore digging [where the wallet was and how i found it again would require itself post] i got my wallet.
Again i had old coisn from 2010 bought at 4$ so i was selling heaps at 200-250$ range + bought some miners.

So since BTC raised so much i`ve noticed also PPC/LTC having correlation. Due to story of  2010 [yes i had coins, but imagine if i bought back then 1000 times more?!] i got into LTC at 4$ and PPC at 1 or 2$.
Soon BTC got to 1000$ and other coisn raised [LTC to 50$, NMC to 13$ etc]. By this time i understood BTC and all cryptomarkets are not going anywhere and this is the future.

I started buying in BTCs and got into altcoins - of course only to get them into BTC at some point. I was buying asic miners, reading loads about algos, news and other coins. I dedicated myself to cryptocurrencies aroudn year ago now.
Did GOX touch me? Not at all. When i heard first bad news on this market i took everything out to BTC-E and never looked back. I have some past in business and i trust my gut - it never fails me. It didnt at this time either.

Anyways back to altcoins. I`ve noticed a good - short-term - way to make BTCs is on mining scrypt coins and exchaning them on the right price. I`ve really spent 24/7 reading, studiying, meeting people [meet as online mostly here on forum].
I fall in love with some coins, i joined foundations of HBN/COL and im promo team member of SUN,LGD,METH. Of course i helped many other coins with mediating them to exchanges, helpign to get games, merchants and services.
I have to say i have preety nice farm of scrypt/gpus - around 20mh`s now. Im not just buying/selling, im an active miner helping networks to push their transactions.

What i always loved in cryptos is people helping others, tipping them - no greedyness [of course not everywhere, but we can say as a community we are really good and helpful people] so i`ve decided to do somethin for others too.
For start i made a twitter - http://twitter.com/kingscrownBTC where i got really huge numbers of followers - mostly due to many coin giveaways and pump infos that i`ve shared. I was happy with followers but felt like 1-2 sentence infos is not enough from me.
But i`ve decided to push it futher - ive made Financial Underground Kingdom - http://fuk.io blog with double-optin mailing list and even tho it has just 4 posts now.. it has 1300+ peopel subscribed and loads of extra readers.
This is the place where i share some inside infos on what i suggest to get, when or what is interesting.

Currently in EU im involved in some big brick n mortrar projects with a few big persons of this forum [i will not mention them now as it may not be time yet] - fully BTC targetted. Where it will all take me/us? Time will tell.
I an just say im now [by today] 30 years old, happy, free and i like helping others!

What else is in this story? I read alot of people saying 'if only i were into BTC in 2010-2011' i would be millionaire now. Would you be? Who in 2010 would buy 324234234 BTCs for 4$ and even if he did.. who wouldnt sell most of them at 20$? [500% raise of profit!].
He didnt sell at 20$, what do you say about when it hit 200$ after 2 years of beeing nowhere? That is.. 5000% raise! You wouldnt do that? You are not man of business then! 5000% raise after 2 years staganation/loss is INSANE TO NOT SELL.

What im trying to say here - not always the oldest people in game are the richest, from the old BTC holders the most money made ones that forgot of their wallets [you heard such stories].People who had their wallets open seeing this prices had to sell most of their coins. I highly doubt somebody got into BTC at 4$, hold till 1k$ and sold then. Id rather say either coisn were sold 100-300$ range or not sold at all [some people just hold!].
IMO more big whales [by % of whales] are the guys who entered BTC at 100-500$ range and then invested than oldboys.

What it also means? It also means, even if you are new to cryptos - with dedication and head on your neck, you can still enter this business and be successful.
The community is really helpful so dont be scared to ask. Who doesnt ask - doesnt learn.


Hope you liked the read!
If you want to send me birthday present feel free to tip me anything you wish:

If you just want to say your opinion, call me names and what not - go for it Smiley It took me some time to write this, so any appreciation on the content will be cool!

Happy 30th birthday dude!

You do realize the best years are behind you right?   Never again will you be a twenty-something.  Cheesy

(Yes, I'm just bitter about being in my 40s lol)

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).
I will ignore your Prayer Messages unless you donate to 1CDyx8AUTiYXS1ThcBU3vy4SJWQq6pdFMH

I met kingscrown several months ago and he has been a part of the Col project I have been helping as well. Cryptocurrency is all a learning experience and the best are those who go out of their way to help everyone. If you want someone who's a true blue Crypto soul, Kingscrown is your man, he's a really nice guy who is very bright. I first used Bitcoin when it was worth $1 each to buy lsd off silk road and didn't really know what bitcoin was. There are no real crypto whales except maybe a few that are just very good traders. I didn't really get into Crypto until November of last year and so by then it was already worth as much as today. I've seen and learned enough to know that there are a bunch of lucky people who stumbled upon it and a bunch of good traders. I am no whale but I believe moving forward will not be about bitcoin, it will be creating your own unique coin backed by a community of friends that yield the biggest rewards. So here's to helping each other and wishing the best for everyone, happy birthday my Crypto bro!



Happy Birthday!

True, though I would be more happy if I enter bitcoin a few years earlier. Cheesy

thanx alot guys Wink i still feel young even tho the 3 is in front haha.
to questions here - BTC still has spikes, put your buy orders and be patient.

some time ago - month or two, for 5 minutes on BTC-E bitcoi nwas for 100$. i had buy orders at 250 or 300. got 3 coins at this price, while stabile price was 600$ back then.

some luck, some sniping and you can do it.


also never forget of arbitrage. i made heaps of arbitragign between gox,bitstamp, coinbase and btc-e. now im too lazy to watch all this spikes but i still do that for altcoins on their pumps.

Happy Birthday, it was an interesting read and I agree about the fallacy of people saying "oh all those people that got in early must be rich." I seriously doubt anyone mined or bought a bunch of coins at $4 each and held on until $1000 then sold at precisely the right moment.
