Back in Nov 2013 I finally 'got' Bitcoin. Over a 4 day period I learnt all I could about it through YouTube . I have zero tech skills, and (dare I say it) as you can see by my Karma, I still dont 'do' the internet – I'm nearly 50! Back then I knew one person who had mentioned Bitcoin, so I phoned him up. The price was soaring at the time and I felt the longer I put it off the more I'd miss out. My friend was very nonchalant on the phone and I asked him how much his cost "Oh about $250, then they went down",he said trailing off at the end…. I asked him if he knew how much they were now, he didn't, so I told him – $650…. and this ladies and gentlemen was his reply "Fuck, I knew I should have bought more!!"
Thanks to his reaction I put everything I had into BTC, and became a HODLER! Of course the bubble of 2013 burst spectacularly, but even in the dark days of January 2015 I was still a believer. These days I have a nice little crypto portfolio, and still love thinking back to his reaction, the reaction that made me a hodler. Thank you friend!
