I finally took the plunge and jumped onto the Bitcoin bandwagon. I have been interested in them for a while now and kept putting off getting into them. Part of e kicks myself for now buying some last year when they were going for about $13 a BC. Right now they are trading for over $800. If I got into them purely based on an investment strategy right now would be the completely wrong time. I’m sure that they are going to drop in price soon. No I wanted in them for a myriad of reasons ranging from getting some portion of my money out of Federal Reserve Notes to wanting participate in a growing alternative currency. What I like about BC is that they are being used and used a lot. I have silver but I have never bartered with it. Nor do I know anyone that has. I do know people that use BC regularly. So today’s article will be about the trails and tribulations of setting up a wallet and getting Bitcoins in it.
