I'm not trying to make this a karma whore post, I'm just posting this to show how grateful I am to have Bitcoin. It has been so financially beneficial to me that it's sad to see people turn down such a magnificent feat of technology when it can do so much more. I'm not trying to make this sound like some sort of testimonial or anything, but If it weren't Bitcoin my savings account wouldn't have grown as much as it did over the month of December than it would have in a dumb college savings account bringing in $0.02 in interest. I go to a community college for System Administration and Database Processing while working 2 part time jobs within the IT field. I've invested nearly 90% of my annual salary into Bitcoin and have received significant returns by doing so.
Bitcoin has allowed me to pay for an education, textbooks for my classes, 2 Vacations I've taken with my girlfriend, and many other luxury items I wouldn't have been able to afford if I hadn't started investing in Bitcoin.
Here's to 2017, and another great year for Bitcoin and the community.
tl;dr Bitcoin = gains. gains = happiness
