Total luck: learned about bitcoin in early 2011. Went down the rabbit hole and loaded up. Set my sights on the long-term. Always hedl. Dodged some bullets with instawallet and Mt. Gox. Fork Monday, all in the past. Sitting on a life changing amount of bitcoin.
Got many similar friends sitting on 5-figures of bitcoin. Most of us have gone underground. We're just regular people. Not going to sell. Decentralized blockchain scaling hasn't been solved. Bitcoin is first to hit the wall. Other coins will follow as they grow.
Don't care what you think, but wanted to let you know we're here. Hodling quietly.
