I first heard about blockchain technology years back from Reddit when Bitcoin was just starting out.
I’m Jeff Ramirez, and I’m a software engineer here at Blockchain WTF. (Editor’s note: Jeffery is no longer with us as a software engineer, but still a friend!)
I think cryptocurrencies will become the new way people will pay for things, whether at the store paying for lunch or paying back friend.
I was intrigued when I saw expensive Bitcoin got, and I knew I wanted to get in on that. I got in when I saw Reddit was doing a fundraiser for a Jamaican bobsled team with Dogecoin. I started researching it, and it got some ground, and I even made some money from it.
