My 2 satoshis as an /r/bitcoin contributor a few years back

I haven't signed onto reddit in a couple of years, but it's high time! (I have, however, been lurking...a lot). I originally discovered Bitcoin as a libertarian with a high moral regard for all humanity. I love what people like Elon Musk are doing for our planet! I embraced the original Bitcoin technology with its promise of bringing power back into the hands of the people, the 99% if you will. Unfortunately, the evolution of Bitcoin has been quite off-putting since then. I had since fully diversified into Ethereum and some more promising evolving technologies. However, my heart is still with the original intent of the Bitcoin protocol. AND now, I am extremely pleased that peer-to-peer, fast and inexpensive transactions have returned in the form of BITCOIN CASH! I have always found a profound kinship with Roger Ver and his passionate plea for a better existence for ALL people on the planet. This world view is not an act; knowing who I am, I could easily argue for the possible existence of an altruistic genetic component in a certain percentage of the population. The people that discovered Bitcoin in its early days didn't immediately see money and profits. What we discovered was a breakthrough technology that would empower billions of people around the world to potentially break free of modern day capitalist constraints of greed and control by a handful of people at the top. Unfortunately, this is what the original Bitcoin ecosystem has merged into: a divisive power play for ultimate control. That is not what we signed up for! However, with the emergence of Bitcoin Cash I, once again, feel a sense of liberation and have a renewed hope for the future of all our peer-to-peer, decentralized interactions. I really wanted to keep ALL of my Ethereum (because let's face it, 2.0 and 3.0 will be better technologies), but a decent percentage has gone back into Bitcoin...Cash. I wish everyone well. And now for another whiskey coke! Cheers

/r/Bitcoin FAQ - Newcomers please read

Welcome to the /Bitcoin Sticky FAQ

You've probably been hearing a lot about Bitcoin recently and are wondering what's the big deal? Most of your questions should be answered by the resources below but if you have additional questions feel free to ask them in the comments.
The following videos are a good starting point for understanding how bitcoin works and a little about its long term potential:
For some more great introductory videos check out Andreas Antonopoulos's YouTube playlists, he is probably the best bitcoin educator out there today. Also have to give mention to James D'Angelo's Bitcoin 101 Blackboard series. Lots of additional video resources can be found at the videos wiki page or /BitcoinTV.
Key properties of bitcoin
Some excellent writing on Bitcoin's value proposition and future can be found here. Bitcoin statistics can be found here, here and here. Developer resources can be found here and here. Peer-reviewed research papers can be found here. The number of times Bitcoin was declared dead by the media can be found here. Scaling resources here, and of course the whitepaper that started it all.

Where can I buy bitcoins?

BuyBitcoinWorldwide.com and Howtobuybitcoin.io are helpful sites for beginners. You can buy or sell any amount of bitcoin and there are several easy methods to purchase bitcoin with cash, credit card or bank transfer. Some of the more popular resources are below, also, check out the bitcoinity exchange resources for a larger list of options for purchases.
Bank Transfer Credit / Debit card Cash
Coinbase Coinbase LocalBitcoins
Gemini Bitstamp LibertyX
GDAX Bitit Mycelium LocalTrader
Bitstamp Cex.io BitQuick
Kraken CoinMama WallofCoins
Xapo BitcoinOTC
Cex.io
itBit
Bitit
Bitsquare
Here is a listing of local ATMs. If you would like your paycheck automatically converted to bitcoin use Cashila or Bitwage.
Note: Bitcoins are valued at whatever market price people are willing to pay for them in balancing act of supply vs demand. Unlike traditional markets, bitcoin markets operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Preev is a useful site that that shows how much various denominations of bitcoin are worth in different currencies. Alternatively you can just Google "1 bitcoin in (your local currency)".

Securing your bitcoins

With bitcoin you can "Be your own bank" and personally secure your bitcoins OR you can use third party companies aka "Bitcoin banks" which will hold the bitcoins for you.
Android iOs Desktop
Mycelium BreadWallet Electrum
CoPay AirBitz Armory
Another interesting use case for physical storage/transfer is the Opendime. Opendime is a small USB stick that allows you to spend Bitcoin by physically passing it along so it's anonymous and tangible like cash.
Note: For increased security, use Two Factor Authentication (2FA) everywhere it is offered, including email!
2FA requires a second confirmation code to access your account, usually from a text message or app, making it much harder for thieves to gain access. Google Authenticator and Authy are the two most popular 2FA services, download links are below. Make sure you create backups of your 2FA codes.

Unit Symbol Value Info
millibitcoin mBTC 1,000 per bitcoin SI unit for milli i.e. millilitre (mL) or millimetre (mm)
microbitcoin μBTC 1,000,000 per bitcoin SI unit for micro i.e microlitre (μL) or micrometre (μm)

Welcome to the Bitcoin community and the new decentralized economy!

There are no words for how happy you've made me! You beautiful, beautiful people... THANK YOU!

Edit: I am so grateful to everyone who is using other methods of payment to carry on the spirit of this subreddit while I try to sort everything out with Paypal. I want to say thank you to everyone who has been dedicated to donating to the cause, even setting up bitcoin and changetip accounts to do so. You guys are seriously amazing, and I'm blessed to even be a part of this. It's been a busy weekend, but I've updated the totals for you guys and am working on unfreezing everything with Paypal. This probably means I'll be consolidating my accounts together, so it might take a minute. Again, thank you so much for everything.
Paypal has demanded that I remove the link from this post as it violates the Acceptable Use Policy. This is clearly due to a misunderstanding of how /millionairemakers works, so I'll be contacting them tomorrow to see if I can re-add the button back up.
I've submitted everything to verify GWallet and Paypal. Now comes the waiting game. This means that the totals below are substantially lower than what has actually been donated. YOUR DONATIONS ARE GOING THROUGH, MY BANK IS NOT WORKING AT THE SPEED OF REDDIT! Again, I'm totally breathless at all of this, THANK YOU!!
I'm trying to reply to as many people as I can, thank you thank you THANK YOU all so much for everything, this is so amazing!
Holy bananagrams you guys, you've made my entire year! I'm still in shock from all of this. Thank you all so much for donating and to being a part of this amazing subreddit! I'm trying as hard as I can to reply to all of you.
I had lost my job a couple of months ago and was drowning in the quagmire of job searches. I started getting really depressed about a week ago, as I had just about run out of the savings I had to get a new job. The other day I posted in /millionairemakers hoping for something but not really expecting anything. I've lurked on reddit for a little while and don't really have the courage to post anything, just the odd comment here and there. After a job interview today, I went on a hike with a friend of mine and afterwards saw that my phone exploded with replies about winning this and I'm on cloud 9 right now with excitement!
As for what I'll do with this money, most of it will go to taking down my student debt and living expenses...all except for one dollar, which of course goes to the future winner. If this is significant enough, you can bet that I'll be in places like /Random_Acts_Of_Pizza , /millionairemakers , etc. trying to impart the same elation that I have now.
This is an amazing community and I'm so blessed to be a small part of it. I'm shaking with happiness and I hope to contribute the same feeling to the next person.
Huge thanks to the mods for helping out with the logistics and verification. Another huge thanks to all the redditors of this beautiful subreddit, you have changed my life in a way that I will remember forever and can only hope to pay forward.

Thank you so much MillionaireMakers! Couldn't have happened at a better time!

This couldn't have happened at a better time, and I am in complete shock that I won!
I'm currently driving a 13 year old car that is on it's very last legs, so any winnings will be going towards a new (used) car and/or paying off some old debt. I was laid off a few years back and got into some financial trouble that I've not quite dug out of, as my new job wasn't quite as good financially. This will go a long way to helping with that as well.
I'm really at a loss for words, but thank you so much, I'm literally in tears as I write this. My hands are shaking. I've never won anything like this before.
For me, it's a life-changing moment. Honestly and truly.

EDIT: Just passed $200 in the first hour! You are ALL amazing and generous people! Thank you!
EDIT #2: I've removed the Google Wallet option as I guess because I'm in Canada, it can't really be used. Sorry about that. :(
EDIT #3: I have tried to take a moment to thank each and every one of you, but I now have to go to bed, as I have work in the morning.
I seriously can't thank everyone enough. I will update again in the morning.... assume I can sleep tonight! You are ALL the BEST! Thanks!
EDIT #4: Good morning! Thank you everyone for such kindness! Had some broken sleep last night, but my excitement levels are still through the roof!
A quick, back of the napkin math, shows that we've totalled $1151 USD as of now, in just 9 hours!
EDIT #5 (2/22/16 - 12pm EST): Just a quick note to say that, while busy at work today, I just wanted to re-iterate my thanks to everyone. Closing in on $1500 USD. I am running out of things to say, other than I can never appreciate it enough, and even that amount of money will really change things for me going forward!
EDIT #6 (2/22/16 - 5pm EST): $1895.65 USD (nearly $2600 Canadian Loonies!) in ~21 hours!
Just home from work, but am going get something to eat, and begin getting caught up on my thank yous! Every one of you deserves one, so that is my goal!
EDIT #7 (2/23/2016 - 6am EST): Just a shade under $2000, at $1960 USD. I apologize for not responding to more of you yesterday, I literally passed out from exhaustion between work, and then the overflow of emotions from all of you. I will get to the rest of you today when I get home from work. Thank you again!
EDIT #8 (2/23/16 - 20:30 EST): Well, you passed $2000, and the total now sits at $2017.86 USD.
So I'm a two-thousandaire! And while it's not a million (nor would I ever dream of that), I would like to again thank everyone for their overwhelming generosity.
My thanks alone can never be enough, but I hope it will do for now. I don't even know what to do for everyone, other than promise that this money will NOT go to waste.
I LOVE you all!
EDIT #9: Does anyone know why I keep seeing a large number of "POCKET ERROR" on ChangeTip? Is it something I'm doing wrong, or is there a problem with my account?
Maybe ChangeTip can answer this one for me?
EDIT: The History shows about 35 "POCKET ERROR" on transactions..
EDIT #10: The latest total is now $2092.70! Thank you very much! I've ensured to thank each and every one of you individually up to this point. Car is going into the shop to get checked out on Saturday to determine if it's worth repairing, or should I look for something else. At least now, I have that option, thanks to all of you!
EDIT #11: Final (but depressing) Update I was hoping to come to you all with some very exciting news, that would be seen as an amazing contribution by this community and all of you. Unfortunately, that's not the case.
About two weeks ago, I took the money that I had won, and went on the hunt for a car. I found one, and bought it after checking it out, and making sure that everything was operational. It was a 2004 Ford Focus wagon. The body was in really great shape, and the engine was solid. I took it to get an oil change, and have the mechanics give it a once over, and they said everything looked good.
So I registered the car in my name, had a new fan belt put on, and was good t go, so I thought.
This past week, on Wednesday, I was running errands at lunch, and the engine started to choke and vibrate quite badly. Engine light came on, and it nearly stalled out at intersections. I immediately took it to the auto shop, and had them check it out. I thought at first that maybe there was a bad spark plug, or something. Turned out to be much worse. Looks like the head gasket on the engine ruptured, and one of the cylinders has lost all pressure. Early estimates are over $1000 to fix, which I can't afford, nor do I want to, as I think I was scammed by the seller.
So I come to you with great sadness and embarrassment. What was to be dubbed "The MillionaireMakers Reddit car", has turned into a nightmare. So I'm out the money, out the car, and back to square one. All used car purchases are "as is" and there is nothing like a lemon law where I live. So I don't even have any recourse with the seller.
This isn't a plea for help or a request for anything. I just wanted to share with you, the outcome of draw #16. I'm very sorry to everyone. I tried to make things better from your generosity. Turns out, I can't even do that right.

I am the winner of Millionaire Makers Drawing #22, AMA!

This is absolutely crazy.. Thank you all so much.
I am so incredibly grateful to all you lovelies for this. Late last night my phone started exploding so I got up and checked reddit and when I realized what happened I felt like my heart was going to pop out of my chest. It's an incredible feeling and I hope the community continues to support this project so more people can experience this.
A little about me: My name is Nick, I'm 19, and I live in Pennsylvania. I want to go to school for graphic design but haven't yet because I wanted to be sure graphic design is what I want to do, and because I didn't want to be in debt. So a large portion of this money will most decidedly be used to help me attend college. The rest of the money will no doubt be spent on only the finest of pizza pies.
Again thank you all so much for this, please continue to participate in this contest and continue to donate to make some very lucky person's life better.
I will try to answer as many questions as possible if there are any!
Edit: Hey everyone! Thank you so much for all the donations, I'm trying respond to everyone and answer all the questions. But to most of you I just want to say thank you for your donation, you're awesome.
I just broke $500 a few minutes ago which is crazy. I'll try to keep this updated incrementally. Thank you again!
Update: Hi again! Just broke $750 from what I can tell. Again thank you all so much for your donations, much love. Papa Bless.
Edit 2: Thanky thanky for the gold stranger :)
Update 2: And there it is! If I counted everything correctly I just broke $1000!! Thank you all so much, this is incredible!
Update 3: Good morning, and wow. I think the donations have exceeded $1750 at this point and I couldn't be more grateful. I know I've said it a thousand times, but thank you all so much, this is absolutely tops.
Update 4: $2000. You all are absolutely amazing, and to all of those who donated more than a dollar, you are incredibly generous and you have my most sincere of thanks. I love you all.

MM you are amazing and helping a complete stranger get back on their feet again today!

Holy crap, this is something that happens to other people, not to me... I am physically shaking. I went to bed pretty depressed last night but seeing the entry thread I thought "why not" and offhandedly wrote "unlikely". Then I woke up to this! It's amazing how much of a perfect timing this is, the whole office where I was working just got shut down and everyone working there lost their jobs. I'm trying to start something of my own as I have some good and viable ideas (I think/hope) but finding time to bootstrap it isn't easy when trying to make ends meet. If things do go well and I can get back on my feet I may also be in a position to finally propose to the love of my life.
I know I'm not going to be a millionaire from this and don't want to get carried away, but really this is perhaps the best time this could have happened to me in my life so far, where any amount can go a really long way. You may not make me a millionaire today but you are giving me the means to make it there myself, or give all I can to try. I will make sure to use it as wisely as possible and pay it forward when I'm in a better position myself. I'll update when I can if there is any interest. Again...THANK YOU to everyone in this amazing community!
Edit 1: We are over $100 in an hour - thanks to everyone who is a part of this :)
Edit 2: 3 and a bit hours in and we are at $425! Special thanks to u/xtrsports for an awesome $50 donation. If anyone is interested in an outline of my plans for the immediate future I made a comment here. Thanks to all you wonderful people. Sincerity is difficult to convey over the internet and easy to fake, but this is so appreciated, will be put to good use and will be paid forward.
Edit 3: It'd be great if you could upvote the thread, especially to counter some who are downvoting it
Edit 4: 5 and a bit hours and we are approaching $600. I have to get some rest but will update when I can in a few hours time. Thanks to everybody again. Just about $999,9400 to go. We've totally got this :)
Edit 5: bad time for my internet to stop working properly. Will update as soon as I can.
Edit 6: 13 hours in and just under the $1000 mark. That means we are only three zeros off making our first millionaire!! ;)
Edit 7: $1000 mark broken. The US is asleep. To the literally dozens of non-US redditors: don't let them outdo you guys ;)
Edit 8: 20 hours down and we are at $1300!
Edit 9: ~$1960 raised. Here is an update post

IM SO SORRY YOU ALL COULDN'T FIND ME! I BLAME THE NEW OFFICIAL REDDIT APP :-P

I literally don't believe it. I don't play the lottery nor do i gamble, maybe its the irish in me playing some ironic joke, but im not generally lucky. SHOUT OUT TO U/LITTLE_FOXES!! SHE FOUND ME ON FACEBOOK, AND MESSAGED ME, AND WHEN I DIDNT SEE THAT SHE COMMENTED ON MY POST AND MESSAGED ME AGAIN WHEN I FINALLY ADDED HER!! THE TRUE MVP. Ive been so caught up making accounts and trying to remember new passwords i dont even think i thanked her yet. I just found out as i was driving to my buddies house to hang out, and ive been on my computer the whole time in disbelief as i try to get my formatting correct. I said in my original post that i was going to take my family to ireland, but in all honesty itll go to christmas presents. Maybe this is the year i get my mom SOMETHING THAT SHE ACTUALLY USES MOM. Ill revisit this tomorrow but i really should get off my computer now cuz ive been the worst house guest ever for the last 2 hours. Thank you all so very much, and IM SO SORRY IT TOOK SO LONG TO FIND ME! Anyway, my parents still dont believe me or understand whats going on, which is fun, but this is an amazing community and you definitely have a lifelong member here.
Thank you all again Shea

EDIT#3: My mom has told me to put a watermark on the photos that I take, probably 85 thousand times now. Im thinking that for Christmas I'll get a print of one of those framed and matted, and surprise her with a watermark. Thanks for allowing me to make that happen you bunch of generous guys and girls from all over the world. The total is around $1500! This was thanks, in part, to changetip shutting down, because a lot of you just gave me whatever you had left in your accounts! The biggest surprise is how spread out everyone is, and how many different currencies were represented, this sub is worldwide. I can't thank you all enough, and I'm glad to do an ama if you all wanna chat :)
Much love, Shea.

Hey everyone! /u/OrgulousOgre here, the latest winner! Thanks so much, and here's my info!

Hi everyone! Thank you so much to everyone that has donated or said they’ll donate, and thank you to the mods for being so helpful and setting all this up. This is amazing, and I’m so grateful to all of you.
I have everything set up except for Paypal (Sorry! Believe me, I’m bummed about that too). I’ll either update this post come Monday or so or make a new post about it. All set! Thanks to anyone who waited patiently and to anyone that already donated
Some things about me - I'm actually still a high school student (which is why this Paypal business has to be sorted out, if only I'd been born a few months sooner!). I run cross country and track for my school, as well as for my own enjoyment. I'll probably be getting a nice new pair of running shoes pretty soon thanks to you all :)
This honestly couldn't have come at a better time, as I'll be sending out my college apps starting soon, and whatever I have left over I'll need for when I start college. I worked throughout the whole summer and kept a small side job but I don't have time to work too many hours during the week with homework/clubs/sports. I'm looking to study mechanical engineering.
Some little things I'll splurge on are probably a portable charger, running shoes like I mentioned (and probably a pair of spikes too since I've been hesitant to chalk up the money to buy them), and with Christmas coming up a few people close to me are going to owe all of you thank yous.
Thank you again so much, this is amazing
Update 1: First night! Wow, over $500 in changetip already plus more in google wallet, dogecoin, and bitcoin. This is still so unreal, thank you all.
jrrhea offered me a $100 budget for an Amazon wishlist to spend on college/school supplies. I'd like to ask all of you what you recommend based on what made your own lives easiemore convenient. Huge shout out and thank you to jrrhea!
Update 2 Over $1000 on night 2! Absolutely incredible and completely unexpected. Thanks again so much!
Update 3 $2000 as of night 3! I think I'm running out of adjectives to describe this experience, but thank you again to everyone.
Update 3.5 Thanks to jrrhea I will be getting a new L.L.Bean Backpack, quick charger, cable, and a portable charger with quick charging! Thanks so much! Here's a link to the wish list I provided in case anyone is further interested in what I chose
Update 4 Hey everyone! Around $2200 now and I think most everyone that wanted to has donated at this point. If anything changes I'll be sure to let you know. Thanks again to anyone that donated!
Update 5 Alright guys, got the exact amounts done as of 10/28/15 at PM ES. Also, here's the album of what jrrhea sent to me, amounting to about $100! I edited that into my total. I'm sorry for not being more active or responsive, but I don't get home till around 6 on most days and by the time I eat, shower, and do homework I'm close to falling asleep. I'm gonna be going through each comment now thanking and answering anyone I missed. I

I won! My mom is going to be so proud.

I finally won something! This is amazing and could not have come at a better time in my life. I'm going back to school this summer and am about to have a mountain of debt. While my university provides pretty good health insurance, it also looks like I may have some medical bills to pay soon. This is going to help me so much!!! I'm so excited exclamation points just don't cut it.
I've loved reddit since the day we met but I never expected to benefit financially from this incredible community. Thanks to all the mods at /millionairemakers and the generous redditors who are already donating.
Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou
Can't wait to tell my mom!
Ooo and if you choose to donate, please tell me one way you think I should spend a small amount to treat myself.
UPDATE: After 8 hours, I have received nearly $1,300!!! You guys just paid for more than 10% of my first semester. Every dollar that you have donated lifts a piece of a burden I thought I'd have to carry for decades. I've never experienced such a sense of joy, relief, and excitement provided by so many caring strangers. There is no way for me to truly express my appreciation as I sit here with a blissed out goofy grin, waving my arms and clapping with each new contribution.
I know everyone is eager to know the running totals so I will post another update either later tonight or early tomorrow morning. Probably won't be sleeping too much anyway.
Thanks again to all you amazing folks for making this one of the greatest days of my life!
Update 2 GOOD MORNING! I just woke up to another $1000 bringing the current total to $2300! I just still can't believe this is happening. The donations keep coming in along with so many kind words and excellent suggestions. It has already been a deeply life-changing experience for me to be a part of this. I can't even begin to express my profound sense of gratitude for so many people coming together with such unexpected gestures of kindness.
Thank you so so much. And my mom was speechless when I told her. Gonna give her a morning update call right now! Be back soon everyone!
Update 3 Good evening all! Currently at $2700 and still rising! This is now more than 20% of my tuition for the summer. As many of you have astutely observed, my tuition is maybe a bit unreasonably high. I have no good explanation for this. I just try not to think about it too much or I would never sleep.
Classes start tomorrow. You will have made it possible for me to walk through those doors with a little more confidence and a lot less apprehension. Each one of you did that for me and I will never forget it. Thank you and good night.
Update 4 Still going! I hope everyone had a great weekend, especially those who were enjoying the holiday yesterday. I know I did because I'm now $3,200 less broke and it feels so good. I think tonight I have enough time to treat my mom. Gonna buy some slightly fancy groceries and cook a good meal at home. That's what she will appreciate the most. Thanks for making a random Tuesday night one to celebrate!
Update 4 $3600!!! You guys are great! School is tough :(

MM #24?! Spookionaire? Unreal. AMA

This is #24, the 25th winner has been found!!! Donate here
A WEEK FROM MY BIRTHDAY!!! I'm astounded by the generosity of this community and happy to be a part of it. This is one of those things reddit does (really credit goes to the creatomods for organizing all this so amazingly) that absolutely warms the cockles of my heart. As soon as I stop shaking I'll try to get some thoughts down here. This is completely unreal.
I'm an unemployed electrical engineer who recently moved back home with his folks, my unexpected unemployment sort of put the brakes on my life. Dream job out of the picture I am just now embarking on the path to create a company. This money will help me wade through the path I've chosen, and goes a long way to ease the worries of unemployment (re:health insurance)! I can not be more thankful for all the help.
This is just incredible, thank you you generous generous bastards.
First Edit: I got a late start but I think I've set up the tip bots properly now? Litecoin won't return my PMS ;_; I'll have that sorted soon. In the meantime you guys are amazing, $98 (ish) bucks! I'll update in a few hours.
Edit 2: Total is at: $217.50!!! I have to throw a special thanks out to the_real_octojay (his BTC: 19v9SLayJtFvLgVvRwcZNhRtisNetXNcUa) who has been helping me out with this crypto currency stuff. We can't seem to figure out what is going on with the dogecoin tips. Either way he has ushered me into this crazy world of crazy internet crazy money. I feel like party cat every time I check reddit, you guys are the best.
Edit 3: 5pm: $300.33!!
Edit 4: 8pm: $454.04!
Watching this arrive has made this day incredible, I have to get to sleep soon (as I was up till about 4:30am last night in a complete tizzy). I'll update again tomorrow AM. THANK YOU thank you thank you thank you.
Edit 5: 7am: 814.21!!
I'd say this is the best thing I've done first thing Monday in recent memory.
Edit VI: 11am: $979.30!!
Looks like dogecoin is working! So excite, much doge. Also Paypal was at 666.41, sppppooooky!
Edit G: 4pm: $1082.32!
More updates to come as donations from you awesome crazy people slowly trickle in.
Edit 8: 7pm: 1109.88!
You all deserve special adult hugs, or whatever your comfort level is. I don't judge.
Edit 9: 8am: 1174.71!!
Paypal limited account because some donations were for exchange of services. When both $20,000 is received and 200 "exchange for goods/services" transactions occur Paypal needs to fill out tax information. WELL before this limit is reached Paypal will make you enter one of three tax IDs (ss EIN and, I think business tax number?). I've punched my info in and the account is unlocked. I had given them my info over the phone, but they didn't pu it in (I think it was just included as a note on the account). I just wanted to type all that out so future winners can see it and clear up any confusion!
Edit 1e+1 : 4pm: 1234.64!
So close to 1234.56. Some change tip stuff still has to register in the comments so its just a touch over that. I've edited down some of the early updates to save on text, make it easier to read. Trust me when I say they are full of excitement!
I've thought about this a lot over the past couple days, and I think I really want a physical thing to comemorate this. Something I can look at and say "the internet bought me X in 2016". A pile of cocaine is a transient thing after all.
With all the light milling/drilling work I do I've decided to go with a Grizzly mill/drill: http://www.grizzly.com/products/Mill-Drill/G0463?utm_campaign=zPage My lab is cleaner than a metal shop, so buying new will help me keep it that way. I should be able to leave a tool like that to future generations. Can't afford a plaque, but I have a few reddit stickers kicking around. More updates to come, all those that are donating late I'm really happy you remembered and it means a ton to me. THANK YOU MILLINOARE MAKERS!
Edit 11: 4pm: 1301.60!! :D Changetip caught up finally.
3d17 12: 1pm: 1334.45!!
Guess I'm leea...t? The tap has just about stopped so it may be awhile before another update. I changed the model of mill/drill after some advice from a good friend. still has space for a sticker or two :D
Edit 13: 1:30p (10/29): 1447.70
Spooky! Happy Halloween party night!
Edit 14: Bday time it's the 3rd, 3:33PM. I'm 33 Total: 1472.92
google changed the way wallet is displayed so I have to add everything by hand. Donations are sparse now so I think this is basically the grand total!! Thanks so much everyone, I'll update this post when I can share the actual physical THING that reddit bough :D :D :D :D D: :D
Edit 15: 11/22 total: 1532.38!!
I'm going to keep the changetip account open till the bitter end, so if you feel like liquidating toss it my way... oh boy that could sound wrong in so many ways.

A massive thank you from our family, you are helping my newborn son Seth to achieve his dreams!

First and foremost, thankyou all so so much for helping us to jumpstart our baby boy's life. My partner Jess, Seth and myself were at Seth's 7 day checkup when I felt my phone began to go a bit crazy, I had to sit down and take a breath on a bench close by because I couldn't stop shaking. Im STILL shaking hahaha.
As previously mentioned, ALL money donated will be going towards my newborn son. As a brand new father and mother, knowing that we may not have to worry about saving for Seth to go to university is absolutely incredible and a little overwhelming. So thankyou, to the end of the universe and back for helping Seth to be whatever he chooses to be.
As for the special Thankyou from little Seth himself, Jess and myself have many MANY photos of him already, but we would like to take a special one especially for reddit. So I will get that organised and posted in the next couple of days :) (maybe a photo of him dressed up as a graduate?)
Also, I'm in need of some really good dad jokes that I can store away and save for when Seth is a little older. So if any of you would like to share your dad jokes, please feel free :)
Oh, and for anyone interested, here are a few photos of Seth. http://imgur.com/a/X4C91
Sincerely Mathew, Jess and Seth

Thank You So Much, millionairemakers!

Thank You million makers! This really means a lot to me. I know I joked about building the "Ultimate Gaming PC", but honestly that has to be something I'll do if I have any extra money left. Right now I'm in real need of a car, so this will help me buy a crappy old car to get me around. I'm not working right now either, so hopefully this will help me get through a week or two comfortably while I continue my job search. Again, thank you so much!!!
Edit 1: Wow already at $865! Thank you so much!
Edit 2: $1,171!!!
Edit 3: At $1,617!!!
Edit 4: $1,940!!! Thank You Soo Much!!!
Edit 5 : $2,258!!! this is incredible. thank you so much!

History of Bitcoin Blunders: ChangeTip

For anyone that wasn't following bitcoin years ago, ChangeTip was an annoying service that allowed people to "tip" other users with fractional amounts of bitcoin via reddit comments. The service was ultimately sold for scrap in 2016.
ChangeTip worked by allowing users to respond to a reddit comment/post with a statement like "u/changetip 100 bits". Then, an annoying ChangeTip bot would respond to that message with something like "someJerk wants to send you a tip for 10 bits, Follow me to collect it".
The whole thing was annoying. Bitcoiners would go out into various subs and start 'tipping' people. These 'bitcoin evangelists' would try to use charity as a disguise for trying to "make bitcoin go viral". Equal parts sad and unsurprising.
ChangeTip lead to several advances to the bitcoin vernacular including:
Penny Shavings noun: Insignificant amount of money (often less than 0.01 USD) gifted to someone via ChangeTip.
Hey What Just Happened Here? phrase: Boiler plate comment used in online forums to initiate an artificial discussion about bitcoin with the goal of attracting interest from passing morons. Typically used in response to use of the ChangeTip service.

Thank you for everything! Donation Thread.

First of all I’d like to thank everyone who sent positive messages. Reddit is an amazing community of good hearted people. I’m still in shock.
I turn 40 in one month and this is the coolest gift ever. Well almost, my wife is pregnant so that is pretty cool too. I think most of your donations will go into an account for my son’s tuition. We are also still paying off student loans. That’s right. 39 and I still have student loans…and a mortgage, and car payments, and medical bills.
***EDIT - I'm blown away. $25 from David R and Richard W!!! Donations from New Zealand! I don't even know how to spend hobbit money! I've seen donations from all over the world. UK, Canada, Denmark, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Australia, and all over the Eurozone. I'm sure the are many other places too. That's just all of the currencies I can see in Paypal. Thanks everyone for this wild ride. Checking my email has never been so fun!
***EDIT Running totals - updated 4/29/15 10pm CST - YOU DID IT YOU AMAZING BASTARDS!!! You surpassed the total for the last drawing! Thank you everyone! I guess I will slow down on the updates now. I should probably spend more time with my pregnant wife and less time staring at screens. :-) http://i.imgur.com/FQnMPtT.jpg
EDIT 5/7/15 Its been a little over 10 days. I had a few more requests for an update so here it is. Thanks again to everyone. I've been able to pay off a few bills and buy a bunch of stuff we needed for the nursery. This has been a huge help and is providing some much needed peace of mind before the kids comes. I made a donation to Nepal. I've also learned a ton about crypto currencies which has been fun. I've received about a dozen phishing emails from jerks trying to hijack my accounts. It's been a wild ride. Thanks for taking me along!
