About three weeks ago I finally told myself “Ugh, what the heck, let’s buy a bitcoin! I want one just to have one.”. I had looking into buying many times before, even before the rush to $1000, then in the subsequent drop and finally bought after the “crash” resulting in Ghash.io having over 50% of the hashrate. The main reason I hadn’t bought any before is that it’s a hassle for a non-american to set up accounts with Exchanges to buy into it, you need all sorts of address and identity verification which is a bit of a turn-off.
