During the Christmas of 2012, we teamed up with Bitcoin Black Friday to be one of the first apparel companies to accept Bitcoin for purchases. We had no idea if anyone would actually buy anything with their bitcoin, but we were new and small and we were looking for ANY revenue streams. There were a couple of great processors that we knew we could convert back into dollars quickly and not lose too much money if the price of bitcoin went down (Laughing at this thought right now). The price at that time for a bitcoin was around $13 each. We had more than 2000 coins come through the website that Christmas. We talked about holding them, but then bills and running a business got in the way. Today those 2000 coins would be worth $22 Million dollars. If only we had held on. Anyways, i do own Bitcoin today, but only a fraction of 1 bitcoin. The irony of that is so funny. Now I buy and hold, but holy cow what if! :)

I've only known about/been following bitcoin since the spike of 2017. If willing to share, I'm curious of how you heard of/started investing in Bitcoin - especially those who were pre-the-boom. Basically, I'm just an old lady who likes to read about peoples stories and also likes Bitcoin. Not only am I still learning about Bitcoin (its a long road for me, I'm the tortoise in the race), I'm also trying to learn about Reddit. So - I apologize if this is a question that's already been asked a million times and the dead horse has been pulverized at this point. I couldn't figure out how to search on here.
I wanna hear your crazy Bitcoin stories. What's the craziest thing you've ever done to get bitcoin?
Example: going into massive debt or selling one of your kidneys to buy during the bullrun of 2017. I'll start: I carelessly took out a personal loan and maxed out my credit card to buy bitcoin. I won though because I weathered the storm and held, and I bought more. I have since paid off that debt and I still have my bitcoins which I am currently in the green on.
Just wanted to vent/rant and possibly help people realize how toxic that place is. Almost every post made me angry, sometimes livid. It was incomprehensible how so many people have been brainwashed. The worst I saw was a cartoon depicting head mutilated with blood/gore, referring to memorydealers and some other bitcoin cash pro people. I called it out saying this is not suitable, and should at least be marked NSFW. I have kids and they watch my screen often. All I got was snarky responses back. I was stayed subbed with bitcoin alongside various other cryptocurrencies. I was subbed /btc early on during the 2x bait and switch. By unsubscribing I was worried that I would just be causing myself to be moved into my own echo chamber--not seeing the opinions of others. Turns out it's not really true. They're in their own (very closed off) echo chamber, way worse than almost any other crypto sub I've seen. I've now left and am much happier day to day. It's amazing how much that subreddit affected me. Anyway, I hope this reaches out to someone who is in a similar situation. Have a great day/night/earthrise/earthset.
