Just a friendly reminder to get your coins off exchanges such as Coinbase. Also newcomers take note that Robinhood doesn’t allow you withdraw your bitcoin. They only allow you to sell it for dollars.

If you have your coins on an exchange take note that hacks and employee theft have lost users millions. MT Gox customers still haven’t received anything lost after 5 years now and most of the time you will never see your money again if stolen.

You can avoid this by putting your coins into a wallet that is under your control versus an exchanges control: https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet

For more than $ 500 worth of bitcoin it is highly recommend you look into buying a hardware wallet.

You’ve been warned don’t cry and cry on here if you ignore this advice repeated time and time again.

Bitcoin – The Currency of the Internet

The story of Hal Finney, an extraordinary cryptographic activist (main contributor to PGP), and his idea of “Reusable Proofs Of Work”. He was also one of the first Bitcoin users (downloading Bitcoin on the day it was released), receiving the first Bitcoin transaction ever from Satoshi him/herself!
