  5. I wish I got them when they first came out .

    I know people that had over a thousand when the coins first came out .
  6. They dont come easily? LOL.. They are easy to buy. You can open up an account and have some in your wallet in as little as 30min. Sometimes quicker..

    Dont beat yourself up too much...but ya thats like throwing away a winning lottery ticket!

    I started buying them at around $8. When they hit $60 I told my close friends this is going to make some people rich. Some got in. WHen it hit $1000 I dumped most and told my buddies to do the same. It peaked at about $1150 if I remember correctly.

    I would like to say Im some amazing investment guru but it was just a hunch and dumb luck...but thats better than no luck!

    Coinbase requires you to link your bank account. It takes three business days to hit your wallet, but if you have a credit card you can instant buy a few hundred I believe. Their rates are the best I've seen. I always buy a little extra in anticipation of price fluctuation and fees, etc.

    I may have missed it but haven’t notice anyone in this form recommend cleaning your coins. There are hidden services that mix your coins to remove the link between you and your transactions, protect you against blockchain analysis.

    I'm pretty new to crypto currencies. Are you talking about BTCD, or are you talking about a piece of software?

    I was reading up on dark wallet and it seems pretty unstable right now. You've actually been using it with success???

    No that is an old post due to it being unstable I lost to many coins. There are better methods at this point.

    No not btcd. Bitcoin Blender an anonymous bitcoin mixing service, mixes your coins with other users to break the track to the original source. They charges about 2%, only available as a Tor hidden service.
    There are also several ways of mixing your coins for free that can help protect against blockchain analysis, google “shared coin”.
