Any Bitcoin Billionaires here (or millionaires) ?
03/01/18 09:03 AM


Sooo, like lots of people here, I've been following Bitcoin and crypto developments since the early days. But, unlike so many others, I was (in hindsight) too stupid, too cautious, too skeptical to lay any money down. Back in 2010/2011, I had 2 old PCs and 2 old laptops set aside for use as mining rigs, but friends, colleagues, and especially university professors (where I do a lot of work) all talked me out of it: the electricity wont even cover what you make, its all a pyramid scam, a lot of people are going to lose a lot of money, its only used for illegal activities in places like Silk Road, etc.

So, around 2011 was when I last looked at it really closely, and I didn't think much about it until June-2017. Sure, I saw mentions on news web sites, TV, etc every now and then, usually headlines like "Bitcoin crashed again" or similar, and I often thought - "huh ? is that the same Bitcoin I looked at in 2010/2011 ? Is it really still going ?".

But, being a complete dunce, I still did not lay any money down.

Since June-2017, I have been watching things more closely. Amazed at the hysteria and frenzy, and spending hours each week in r/Bitcoin and r/Buttcoin and other subs, stirring things up when I can. (Got to have a hobby ...)

There's been a few threads in Mame World on crypto, but I don't recall seeing any for a while now.

So, did anyone here make good ?
Did you "go to the moon" ? Cash out ? Buy a lambo ?
Anybody going to hep build the new Bitcoin City in Puerto Rico ?
What do you guys and gals think about all this ?
