While visiting the US Ver hears about Bitcoin on a radio program. A month later, he hears about it again on the same program and starts to study the virtual currency in depth:
I realised it’s the best form of money that the entire world has ever seen. I literally got so excited because I felt my life’s calling had arrived in the form of Bitcoin. I didn’t leave my house for over a week and spent every waking moment reading every single thing I could find on Bitcoin. I got so sick from the lack of sleep that my friend had to take me to the hospital.
He buys his first Bitcoins at around $1.
