Starting off with Bitcoin isn't as easy as it sounds. Doing the same with Bitcoin Cash or any other cryptocurrency doesn't make a difference either. I know, 'cause I've been there.

Once I first found out about Bitcoin through a YouTube video, I wanted to learn more about it, so obviously I visited their website and watched their video on bitcoin mining. The time I found out about Bitcoin (I can no longer remember), it was just about a few thousand bucks. Nonetheless, I still wanted to mine these little things.

So I grabbed my laptop, downloaded a miner and guess what? I had no miner's account, so I had to sign up in Slush Pool which was a goddamn pain in the ass since I had to get a confirmation email, and finally, finally I can mine. But guess what? I'm going to let you guess.

There is an error. An error without a clear solution. So I just gave up until I found out about Bitcoin faucets. I took my chances and used them. First, they'd go to a service named ePay (I forgot the address to the website), then once I got in the minimum withdrawal threshold (plus a miner's fee), I was able to enjoy my money. But that took me a long time.

I took my chances on BitMiner.io and thebtcgenerator.com (this website no longer exists), and they both worked. The problem with BitMiner.io is that it's been a few years, and my Bitcoin is not there on my wallet. The problem with the second one? Same with BitMiner.io.

I was hopeless. I basically quit mining Bitcoin and lived a normal life. Until I found out about this bastard again through a Fuzzy and Nuts video. I searched it again, and what I found, was a mining browser called CryptoTab Browser, and it was available for my phone, but I didn't install it yet.

I installed it on my laptop, believing it's real, and it installs just like Chrome does. It's basically a Chrome clone, but with mining capabilities.

I opened it, signed up, ran the miner extension, and lo! It actually started mining without any problems! But, it took a long time, so I waited.

Longer… Longer…

No. I can't stand it. I gave up again, but as I checked my balance, I had a small fraction of bitcoin (I had about 1,000 satoshi at the time I checked), and I was happy.

Later on, I searched for an Android version, and there was. I installed it and did the same. It does mine, however it needs internet. It's mining from a server. It's fine, as long as it mines. I got slow profits. But I was patient.

Give me a while later and I just discovered about Bitcoin Cash. They say it's an alternative to Bitcoin, but I didn't want to abandon my crypto-mission. So I downloaded a wallet, and went to this website, Honest Cash.

And here I am today, mining with my Android TV, my laptop, my phone, and my personal desktop.

From that moment on, I never quit. Not for a goddamned moment.

Crap, I probably didn't. How do you activate the wallet?
