Back in 2012, if you had 2100 BTC you could be part of the Vladimir Club

The ‘Vladimir Club’ was something that began back in August 2012 on the btctalk forums.

To join, you had to own 1% of 1% of the total supply of Bitcoin – which was about 2100 BTC at the time (21,000,000 * 0.01 * 0.01 = 2100 BTC), but of course lots of Bitcoin was lost since then so perhaps joining the club now is a lot less.

Back then to get in cost around $18,000 ~ $21,000 to get into the club. That was big money to spend on a then still pretty unknown thing.

If you joined the club and were a hodler you’d be sitting on a cool $126m USD today.

I love reading about this sort of thing and the legends of early crypto. I can imagine some of these guys would’ve sold, lost their coins or maybe even amassed more along the way since 2012.

I wonder if there are any exclusive groups out there now that only let you in if you can prove you own X amount of a certain crypto.

  1. Wonder how many of those folks have a net worth of $126m or more now. They almost certainly sold some of their coins. But maybe they made up what they lost selling BTC by participating in the Ethereum ICO or mining Litecoin or Dogecoin early or something like that.

  2. I honestly love browsing the old topics at the Bitcointalk forum. To see the differences and opinions compared to today’s. Some of them are quite crazy, saw a guy that believed in it, was commenting everywhere that BTC is future and everybody should get something before it’s too late. If I will find it again will share it here. And to think it wasn’t even that long ago…

  3. $21K is “big money” to you? haha chumpchange. just kidding… saw an alt that looked shiny and now i am broke. can I borrow 3 dollars so I can get some lunch? 😀
