"2010, that's very early in the Bitcoin world, I discovered Bitcoin on a mailing list. It was probably one of the cypherpunk mailing lists, I downloaded it, I played with it, I mined some Bitcoin as far as I recall, I mined four blocks and then I made, what was probably the silliest mistake of my life, I said this isn't as interesting as "City at Home" so I deleted it. I thought why use my computing power to create these virtual coins I've got two hundred of them already [Laughter]." - Dale Bewan
