28 Apr 2013 : Bitcoins #
Today I traded my very first Bitcoins. It's possibly the worst time to be buying them, given the amazing amount of publicity they've been getting recently (and the upsurge in their value that's resulted). Still, today I'm buying them for a reason rather than as an investment, so I've convinced myself that it's okay. Why the rush? I just discovered that Casascius is no longer selling physical Bitcoins to individuals. Since I'm keen to have one, the high price is just something I have to suck up. I'm looking forward to getting hold of a physical coin (even if it epitomises everything Bitcoins aren't!), and it's exciting to actual own some of the currency. The Web right now manages to make Bitcoins look a lot more daunting than they actually are, which is quite an accomplishment.
