My Story of Bitcoin from 2010 - 2017, how it changed my life. From a average earner to a millionaire

Now-a-days bitcoin has been talk of not just a town but for the world. Reason???? the soaring prices

It hit from as low as $0.07 to $1212. That is a crazy 1731328 % increase in its price. July 19th 2010 the time when I was mining using my Rig, the price of each bitcoin did not even get me a Pizza and today the day when i'm writing this article i'm in a position to buy a Lamborghini if I need, but I refrain from doing so. I used to mine somewhere around 100 Bitcoins everyday, but as I was not mining it often I must have had 12000 Bitcoins by the end of 2012.

After which I don't know why I took a break from Bitcoins for pretty long time almost a year. Maybe that was the wisest decision of my life. Because I still remember that month it was April 2013 when the price of each bitcoin was $100+, I couldn't believe my eyes. I was a millionaire already. But sadly one of my friend attempted suicide the very next day due to some of her problems, I got busy with her and I forgot about the bitcoins again. We went to various places and as it was summer time we where on a pretty long vacation for over a month, and to keep myself anonymous I would not be disclosing which country I belong to or where we went.

Now coming back to the discussion, I got a job at one of the growing companies then a Technological Firm to keep myself stick to my I got busy in that work, it was late in the November time when one of my colleague started discussing about cryptocoins as our company was showing some interest in Blockchain technology. That is when I recollected about my bitcoins. Holy Moly Fish some said the price of bitcoins has touched $1000+ each that's when I took the day off calling sick and went home as fast as I can, switched on my computer to see if I had the bitcoins in my wallet, yes I had 12000 Bitcoins in my wallet. 12000 Bitcoins worth $10+ Million. I couldn't believe my eyes. I cannot explain how I must have felt, I sat, I drank whole night.

Next day i realized I cannot sell all the coins because that will catch a lot of attention. So i started selling in them in very small numbers so that I unnoticed and I also I didn't let it affect my work.

I later realized that one day I will run dry after selling the bitcoins, I need to invest it somewhere which will earn back. That's when I partnered with one of the mining Pools and till date I keep mining and with my specialized miners attached to many different pools.

Even today I have more than 10k Bitcoins in my secure wallet offline.

My suggestion to others would be to be calm, don't be greedy, have patience in everything. Success will definitely touch your feet. Always read latest news about everything, you never know what can bring you a prosperous life later.

My age, location, gender, nationality, color, creed everything stands unknown. Because i'm anonymous like the bitcoin transactions.

What are coins versus altcoins? Is bitcoin a coin with all other cryptocurrencies, altcoins?

Fortunately you didn´t get lost in Bitcoin too much. That kept you from a one sided life.

Prosperous life is a good point. Let´s see what 1 Bitcoin will be worth in a couple of years. Till then don´t forget to live :-)

wow this is seriously awesome. I knew this was happening to someone out there, i remember when I first learned of bitcoin it was at 50 cents or so... and I so wanted to buy some and just never got around to it. such a kick myself thing...

(cough, cough, cough)

thirds rule strategy

Maybe one day I'll have 5-10 bitcoins, heh. Shrug Until that time though, I'll just slowly do as I do.

Nice post. I was about to post a similair post. The cryptospace definitely feels a bit inflated. However we also said that about the S&P 500 40 years ago Does anyone know about: https://www.coincheckup.com This site is really helpful in my coin research. I don't know any other sites with so much indepth analysis. Check: https://www.coincheckup.com/coins/Bitcoin#analysis For a complete Bitcoin Investment research report.

I got into it in 2014 but I was only 14/15 at the time, so I couldn't buy any and as a child quickly forgot about it now I can say I thank go that I got into Steemit and btc at least in the mid 2017. I didn't invest anything but I earned ~ 0.5 BTC when it was 2000$. I sold some but I'm keeping 0.3 so that I can buy a mercedes when it hits 100K$. @pinchme

Would you consider donate me a bitcoin? Haha Well done mate you beat the game!
