A little over X years ago, I traded for about $1500 worth of bitcoin off mt. gox (I'm PRETTY sure about that). I then set an alarm to go off in 7 days so that I could check on it to see if I'm making money or not. Shortly after, I received horrible news over the phone, and I had to leave the country for 9 months. A little while ago, an alarm on my calendar went off. I had set the alarm for X years and 7 days instead of just 7 days. It doesn't make sense, but it explains how I never remembered this. I have no idea where I put anything!? [more inside]
I found myself with an unexpected couple hundred dollars, and have decided to do something I would never usually do: jump on a bandwagon that is fully in motion, namely, bitcoins. [more inside]
Can anyone explain to me, as if I were a child, how bitcoins work?
Someone wants to give me Bitcoins. What's up with that these days? Should I accept these, and what can I do with them? [more inside]
