500, half from CPU mining.

That's pretty cool. I got into mining right at the end of the CPU days Smiley Only made like 20 coins though Tongue
You mean you found twenty blocks of fifty coins?

Any significantly advanced cryptocurrency is indistinguishable from Ponzi Tulips.

How many months ago?

700% yield in 2 months?  

I just took out my financial calculator and I figured out you gained  approximately 3.53% compounded every day for 60 days to come up with that sum.  "Abnormal returns" if true.

29% per week?

Doubtful unless you are highly levered.

I was pushing 850 after a start with 700 doing some trading on MtGox.

Then I started trading on Bitcoinica.

I am now at 180 in my MtGox account. Sad


My goal was to get to 1000 then just let that ride into my retirement.

I'm at a solid 2106, and ideally I would just hold them and not buy more but chances are I'll want to keep buying. I've got pie-in-the-sky hopes for this thing since I'm one of those crazy internet libertarians who thinks Bitcoin is almost the perfect money.

Lol, you must have just come back from the dead to see the value of your coins. I can tell because of the TH referral.... TH is dead now, Dwolla fucked them.

It's nice to have 1/10000th, but I'm still kicking myself because I discovered Bitcoin around when they were worth 6 cents and didn't pay enough attention. I didn't bother going on the forums so I never learned about an exchange or anything, or that there was a real community. I just downloaded the client and mined with my CPU for a bit, then eventually got rid of it. I then randomly google searched it almost a year later to find out they were going for almost $1.00 and the economy had progressed significantly. That's when I became interested. So I'm actually not much over break-even right now for my investment since I also bought a lot at higher prices, while the lowest I've bought at was probably around $3.

But the key in my mind is not to gamble and leverage unless you're playing with a small amount of coins. I'm lucky enough to have a good job and few expenses so spending a couple thousand on coins once in a while is not a big deal for me. I also never trust keeping my coins stored online anywhere.

The reserve address for my savings program (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=60405.0) has 340 BTC sitting on it at the moment: http://www.blockchain.info/address/12zyCSx4ijK9UZWwfQQSWBZ5mgHoGyoiEH

But none of them belong to me Sad

Maybe 3 or so I don't know.  For example I bought MU at I think .10 and sold around .70

Also bought MATH at about 1 and sold for 10 a couple weeks later

Not unheard of on the glbse

Add a few day trades here and there

So I'm actually not much over break-even right now for my investment since I also bought a lot at higher prices, while the lowest I've bought at was probably around $3.

This is uncannily similar to my story. I actually found Bitcoin like late in 2009, I mined two blocks and thought to myself, "This is even more pointless than using my CPU to find prime numbers!" I then deleted the wallet and have no way of recovering those 100 coin.

About a year later I start reading about this crazy digital currency that Wikileaks donators were using that was close to parity with the dollar and realize it's the same thing. Like you, I mined with my GPU for a while and eventually threw a bunch of cash into Dwolla and then used a #bitcoin-otc trader to move that money to MtGox where I bought for under a dollar. Before I knew it I was dropping money on mining equipment too. I've made both good and bad trades, I think I'm sitting about where I want to be in regards to what I've put in. I've made some really lucky buy orders, too, the last drop to the $2 range on Gox I bought within 2 cents of the bottom. Like you, a significant amount is sitting in offline wallets.

Between those, my physical Bitcoins, and my mining on various pools and into P2Pool wallets that I regularly swap around, I have no idea how many I actually own. I keep telling myself that one day I'm going to have to get all my wallets together and figure it out, but I'm not really in any particular rush to do so, I don't intend to sell for USD, I intend to wait till I can use Bitcoin more regularly to buy any and everything, and then I'll start doing so!

+1. I'm still digging around for my old IDE drive that hosted my first gen-Satoshi client though - if I remember correctly I have mined a couple of blocks on a Pentium 4.  Cheesy
Got back to Bitcoins last May when I was researching stuff for a cryptography project and started rolling in the GPU's.  Wink

It would be interesting to see a rank order list...my ~500 BTC puts me in the top 20,000 (for the moment), but I seriously doubt there are 20,000 people with 500 BTC.
