Undoubtedly, Bitcoin has been been the talk of the town for a long time now. Ever wondered of what value would a Bitcoin tip given 6 years back be today?
The Perfect Gift
A recent post at Reddit, hilariously captures how 6 years ago a BTC tip worth $27.10 then, was the best gift to a stranger.
A Redditor with a handle, bearishbulltard, commented that if anyone wishes to try how it feels to tip 1 BTC to a stranger, he will be more than happy to be that stranger.
A Car, A Holiday or A Mansion?
Today, 1 BTC is worth more than $10,000. With that being said, if the receiver had held on to the Bitcoin he could have easily purchased a fairly luxurious holiday package to a foreign country, or even bought a small car with the full down payment. Well, if we go by predictions, the user could have even bought a mansion if he decided to HODL it til 2025.
A Redditor named Turil also gave a sneak peek into his journey in the crypto world,
My first foray into Bitcoin was tips on Reddit, probably via /r/freebies. It was late 2014. It was maybe a buck or two total at the time.I also got the free Stellar back when they first started and were doing a promo on /r/freebies. It was supposedly worth about $10. Around the same time that Bitcoin was going crazy high, I noticed that Stellar was going nuts too, and quickly traded what ended up being worth about $3500 in Stellar to get more Bitcoin.

Hard to believe now that there were times when whole coins have been thrown around for free,
