“Cufflinks and a tie from a handicrafts entrepreneur in western Finland, dinner in Budapest,” Mika Impola, Software Engineer, lists his bitcoin purchases.
Impola, who is working on the development of the cell controller software at Cimcorp’s Ulvila facility, got into virtual money by accident five years ago.
“I was buying some server space from an online shop, which offered the chance to pay in bitcoins. No commission, without your own identity, like sharing contact information. Later, I came across the definition of bitcoin and I became interested.”
