I've been watching this tech since either 2011 or 2012. Somewhere around there. I used to mine for a few months using my dedicated graphics card. I got like 20mhash.
Point is, I never put my money where my mouth was until today. I've been a proponent and educated at least a dozen people, probably more. There was a time around butterfly labs where my father, brother-in-law and myself were going to throw down on a miner (thank god we didn't go with butterfly!), but we didn't do it.
Now, I really feel 2017 is its year and the price point is still a really nice place to buy.
So I'm jumping in. I might jump in a little more come bonus and tax return time. My faith is at an all time high.
I'd like to thank the contributors to this subreddit. This is my third reddit account, but I've been lurking here as other usernames for years.
To the moon folks!
