Three weeks ago I discovered bitcoin. After a period of head scratching, it 'clicked' and I have been in love with it ever since. Yesterday I attended the London 2015 bitcoin expo and people there told me about ethereum. I just read the white paper, and IT'S EVEN COOLER THAN BITCOIN! It's potential is utterly limitless.
Of course I am upset to discover that I missed the original ether sale. So, I'm keen to start mining me some coins as soon as I can (I understand from the white paper that my desktop cpu will be perfect for the job and can't be quickly replaced by an ASIC).
Anyway, the date for launch is only given as Q1 2015. Do we have any more specific information on this anywhere? I want to be there the second it launches!!
