I heard about Bitcoin around 2012 but I just sat and waited to see if I would hear more of it. I really got interested about Bitcoin when I heard an interview of an entrepreneur starting a business providing Bitcoin services and his reasons for why it is a good currency. Bitcoin is a long term play for me. By long term, I mean one, two or three decades. It is not something I want to trade on a weekly, let alone daily basis. The spreads are too far apart in relation to its daily movements.
