    Today I was able to get my first Bitcoin. Needless to say I almost lost over $1,000 when trying to buy one off eBay, so please do yourselves a favor and do not buy Bitcoins or any other virtual currencies using Paypal/eBay, as Paypal do not protect buyers when ordering virtual items. I recommend buying your BTCs from one of the top sellers, even if it will cost more, but that way you know for sure that you will get your Bitcoins. I really hope that it keeps going like some people are claiming it will. Thankfully I didn't pay for it, a site called is giving out 1BTC, as of now that is more than $800.
