Where on Wednesday: Seven - Time machine required


I've been thinking about cryptocurrency lately and feel like it's a good time to increase the amount I hold...(I'm sorry, I don't have it in me to use the common, and incorrect, spelling of the word hold as most do - I don't get why people do that.) Anyway, the small issue of not having a lot of spare fiat to invest currently is getting in the way of me building my horde, however I'm working on it, little by little, and increasing the amount I have in the same way...Little by little.

I purchased a small amount this morning, BTC, and am happy to have had the ability however it left me thinking back to the early days of Bitcoin, those heady days when it cost cents, so today's #whereonwednesday is more of a when on Wednesday as I find myself wishing I was back in 2010...With the knowledge I hold know about cryptocurrency of course. Anyone have a time machine I can borrow?

To the best of my knowledge Bitcoin was about $0.06USD to buy around August 2010 which means 1000 would have cost $60...Not a big investment. Fast forward to around about now and that $60 investment would be worth over $10,000,000! Hmm, what was I thinking back in 2010? Why did I not get any?

Well...I simply had no clue about Bitcoin back then and had I known about it I would most probably have called it a scam and not bothered getting any. Yep, what an idiot! But...I know different now right? I'm here on steem as an early adopter and am optimistic on the future of steem, and the other cryptocurrencies I hold, and with some luck will see a benefit from it in the future...Reminiscent of the Bitcoin benefit!. src

I cannot get into a time machine with $60 and go back to 2010 to buy 1000 BTC however in my mind it's happening right now...Right now as I sit in my office pretending to work working away to earn fiat. It's just a dream though, a wish. So, it's a #whenonwednesday this week and not a where which I hope you don't mind. I suppose the good thing is that I'm a little more crypto-aware these days...But if only I had a time machine!

Anyway, that's where WHEN I'd rather be and what I'd rather be doing right now. If you want to join in on #whereonwednesday just tag it in your post, on a Wednesday and away you go. It's not a challenge or anything dumb like that, neither do you get anything for it. It's just a chance to post your thoughts and maybe a picture or two.

I didn’t have money for bitcoin back then either and I did actually know about it 🤣 me and another guy in an office I was temporarily working in at the time were trying to convince people it wasn’t a scam so you’re definitely not alone in your feelings (took me buying Magic cards for my partner with steem to convince him it wasn’t scammy 🤣).

This is definitely more my style anyway so I don’t even feel bad 🙃 and seeing as we lack time travel guess we gotta keep rolling? 😆

Yep, gotta roll on...But you're smart...Make a time machine and let's go back to 2010! :)

That was bitcoin, now we have Steem at $0.18! Seems similar from an opportunity perspective!

There is always the question of what would you tell your younger self if you could. Invest in these companies I would say and provide a list. This list would include Bitcoin, and to sell it when it was really high.

Ah yes, if only I had the brains to invent a time machine...
