Coinmarketcap have re-added the bitcoin.com website made by the proven scammer and felon , Roger Ver. This is not acceptable.. I'm sure roger paid them big for this and how many newbies will be brainwashed by them ?

My Bitcoin Story - Thank you Bitcoin

Sun, 01/14/2018 - 09:09

Hi all,

I would like to share my story with you, because sometimes I hear people say that people who had luck with crypto currencies like Bitcoin are just lucky in life and envied a lot. I was one of those blessed people and Bitcoin has really made my life so much better.

I have always been interested in new technology and back in 2012 (I was 13-years old) I bought 3 Bitcoin for 35 bucks. We are a rather poor family, my dad left us the year I was born, and my mom could barely handle the debt he left us. I remember being bullied a lot, because I was quite shy and introverted, plus, my clothes always looked worn off, because we couldn’t afford any better. (We always got our clothes at flea markets!) I know it sounds ridiculous, but I actually got used to being the outside in school and never really talked about it.

But you can imagine how life changing it was, when I realised my Bitcoin went up to 1000 dollars in 2014! I felt so blessed and lucky! It almost was like in a dream. Just too good to be true, right? But my Bitcoin were real! So, I took half of my Bitcoin and bought some off the stuff I have always wanted. New clothes, shoes, a new pillow and blanket, new glasses, hair styling products and also: I went to a hair dresser and a dentist for the first time. It felt really amazing and with every week that passed, I felt more confident and like a normal guy. My self-esteem when from zero to hero, and I even began to stand up to the bullies at school.

Then in 2017, I started to go to college and I needed to get a Laptop. My mom would have never been able to afford it, so I went ahead and took half of my Bitcoin again, when Bitcoin was at 1500 dollars. So first, Bitcoin saved me from the bullies at school and now it had helped me with my education! This how Bitcoin can change someone’s life!

But now for the most important part: It happened just recently, and is also the reason that I decided I want to share my story with you. 1 month ago, my mom had a terrible car accident and we have no insurance. My mom was devastated (it really breaks my heart thinking about her back then) I don’t even want to imagine how it would have ended, if it weren’t for Bitcoin. So I decided to take out another 0.65 (10.000 dollars) out and gave it to my mom to cover the treatment costs! I will never forget her reaction when i gave it to her. She fell on her knees and had to cry. She was ashamed, that she never could offer me much and on top of that, now she even got money from me. For me she is and always was the best mum in the world and I was just happy I could help her and I once again realized how this 35 dollars in 2012 turned into the best thing for me and my family! This is so crazy!

So, I just want to say thank you Bitcoin and all of you HODLERS and everyone who made this possible! It really changed my life in so many wonderful ways. My advice for you: Never sell all of your Bitcoin! I still have 0.1 Bitcoin left, which are currently 1400 dollars, which is a huge amount for me and I will continue to hold it and maybe someday Bitcoin will grow even further and protect me again! :)
