In the first 2-3 years of #Bitcoin neither of the meetups I attended focused on the price.

If you go to a crypto meetup today, the exchange rate is pretty much the only subject.

We actually did though. Because we also talked about mining during those times when it was still feasible. Since it reached $20K then it is a big deal for sure. But digging deeper...

But in the first 2-3 years, the supporters were unable to explain what mining is, and there was no exchanges so even if they wanted, they could not buy it unless they have earned it.

mtgox started trading in 2010.

i dont know about mtgox, i never seen that, but the shitty exchanges i used, even in 2015 only had like daily $50 volumen with 20-30 listed coins.

You definitely traded on shit exchanges then.
replied 12d
None of the exchanges i used were supporting money, so you was only able to trade one coin to another, so you needed coins to trade for other coins.

Kraken and bitstamp started in 2011 too, only 2 years from the first block.

In 2010 the main source was mining and faucets (eg I got 25 from Gavin's facuet).

Personally i have seen and started using the first usable marketplace in 2015, it was called WeSellDoges.com, later rebranded as WeSellCrypto.com by Greg Cronheim, accepting PayPal
