"When I was in college, I remember the stories of students buying drugs online with BTC [Bitcoin]. I also heard that you could hire hitmen. I thought that was stupid, so obviously I wasn’t involved then. It wasn’t long after until a friend exposed me to the investing side of digital currencies and then created an account for me on a cryptocurrency exchange. . ."
