Note to readers: I used the present tense to describe facts and past tense to describe my personal experiences. Sorry for any confusion.
I had the pleasure of working with Sharewave this summer. Sharewave is a platform for private companies to manage their shareholders and investor relations. The Sharewave office is located in the middle of Manhattan, on Madison and 39th – just a few blocks south of Grand Central. This prime location was one of the biggest reasons I chose Sharewave for an internship. As it turns out, however, I got a lot more than I expected.
Back in early 2012, I was introduced to Bitcoins. Wanting to try them out, I decided to put $50 into Mt. Gox in hopes of exchanging it for some bitcoins. At the time, bitcoins were at an all time high…of $5. Thinking that it was too much, I decided to wait for them to go back under $5 before I bought any.
Fast forward to 2013. I see a Reddit post about bitcoins reaching an all time high of $260 each. I looked at the charts and kicked myself for not buying bitcoins when they were only $5 each.
So for the past few months, everytime bitcoins came into the conversation, I would tell my misfortune of not buying bitcoins when they were just $5 each.
