now they hit a peak of 1k per coin couple months ago? yeah, makes me want to kill myself for not even having a 2nd look on this in 2010.


so how do you guys even jump in on this kind of stuff when it first pops out?

Been involved with cryptography and security since the mid 90s, so it was a no-brainer for me.

I started mining Litecoin back in the summer of 2012 and then proceeded to blow all of it on stupid stuff once they reached 4 dollars

stupid....stuff....

I had fun though

same boat as you. I actually remember having a argument over someone calling me dumb for buying Nvidia, when I could have bought a AMD and mined BTC with it. I told them how dumb they where for mining and how they can take their scam and leave. Thought BTC was the biggest scam ever. I could have made millions, instead that guy is driving a luxury car and I have a broken down mazda. redface.gif

Last time i let my ego get in the way.

Indeed. I have profited pretty heavily from the whole crypto currency craze thumb.gif

I remember hearing about it in 2010 and brushing it off. My interest re-sparked when they were hit around $70 and I had a decent money to invest. At that time I was actually looking to invest in litecoins (they were 70c or so a piece - maybe even less), but friends and family talked me out of it. Sigh tongue.gif I would be living a very different life right now if I had followed my gut. But at the end of the day it was a risk. Some people made bank, and others got burnt pretty hard. Maybe they'll be another opportunity again in the future - but I am very skeptical so I'll probably brush it off as another scam/waste of time.
