How do you obtain bitcoins?

This was closed because:

This question is unlikely to ever help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

I don't understand the reason for its closure, I don't think the above text is correct. I've already voted once to reopen it.

  • Voted to reopen - I think the author's comment is right on the mark: "It's not even dynamic: you can obtain bitcoins by charging, changing (just like any currency) or mining" Jan 4, 2012 at 18:44

Reading the comments, HedgeMage closed it for two reasons. One was that it is too localized (in time) and the other was that it is too basic. I know that we have a lot of other questions that are just as localized and just as basic as this one so I agree with reopening it.

I think that it is important though that the answers should not just be a list of popular exchanges but rather an explanation of different ways to get bitcoins, where exchanges would be one of them. If the answer is written in a good way it doesn't have to change that much over time.

The community should decide what to do with it so I won't reopen it until I get some feedback though.

    Are 6 votes enough cause to open?
