    Hey BHW,

    I registered here a while ago but never did much. I posted once or twice and liked some posts, but nothing important.

    these three paragraphs talk about my past botting experiences.
    tl;dr I made a bot and $200 then moved onto BHW


    Making an online living has been a topic of interest for me for a while, and I was intrigued by TheBotNet when I was in middle school. I browsed the website, made some comments, made some posts, and tried out methods. Most of them were pathetic wastes of time, boasting payouts of up to 5 whole buckaroos (!!!) for a week's work.
    I was, however interested in the YouTube section of the forum, and I created a channel. I purchased a couple VPSes and starting running traffic exchanges. I uploaded trash (I think it was royalty free music), and spammed my videos with views. Needless to say it didn't work out. I ended up receiving $0.00.
    I went back to reading and realized that nearly every thread was a massive waste of time and brain cells. I left the forum behind.

    In this paragraph I talk about a website which I will be calling Website X. Website X is a website in which you watch videos and are paid small amounts of money.
    However, not all of my botting experiences were worthless. I began browsing reddit.com/r/beermoney. The environment was very similar to thebot.net, with people spending hours completing surveys and never receiving their promised $3.29 payouts.
    But, I saw it from a new perspective.
    I discovered Website X,I tried it out, leaving the browser open while I was at school. I received a measly $0.19 in my six hours of absence, but it got me thinking. The website allows people to run multiple devices, all watching videos on the same account. I went back to /r/beermoney and saw people with arrays of windows tablets all chowing down on videos. I realized that I could simply create virtual machines instead of buying real machines, and I got to work.
    I have been programming since I was 10 years old and I consider myself to be very good, so this was a trivial task. I whipped out VirtualBox and created 8 identical Linux machines, all running a simple bot that watched Website X videos for an hour and restarted. I set them to work and went to school again.
    I return six hours later to a respectable balance of $2.34. I "earned" $2.15 in six hours, which equated about $8.60 a day. This seemed pretty damn good for doing nothing.
    I set up the virtual machines on my laptop and for a while I ran the bots continuously redeemed $5.00 to PayPal.
    After a while they banned me, but I had gained around $200.
    I thought about doing this again, but I realized that I wanted to go bigger. I briefly considered mass exploitation of a website similar to Website X, but I wasn't a fan of the process and it seemed kind of petty and silly, plus playing dodge ball with the terms of service was annoying.


    I eventually found BHW. I thought it was another TheBotNet, but upon closer inspection I realized it was more. The people here (for the most part) aren't crawling on the metaphoric ground, begging for scraps.
    I browsed the forum and Instagram CPA marketing caught my eye. I purchased FollowLiker, 20 IG accounts, and 10 proxies.
    Over half the accounts ended up getting banned and the rest didn't have much success.
    I took a hiatus from making money and now we're here.

    I am in high school. I have significant free time, desire to succeed, and I refuse to become another mindless drone in the service industry.
    I am very good at programming and math, I am dipping my toes in offensive security, and I have tons of passion and desire to succeed.
    Right now I'm just looking for the right project.


    The previous part of this post uses the word "I" 53 times. Now I'd like to know about you, whoever's reading this.
    Comment what you've been doing, your adventures on BHW, some dank memes, advice, tips, experiences, anything you'd like.
    I look forward to working and succeeding with all of you.

    You seem sharp and experienced for your age.

    It also seems like what you've been 'dipping' in is very amateur stuff. I feel your abilities far exceed the simple Instagram bs.

    If $ is not what you're about, the entire world is willing & open to young and 'sophisticated' kids like you.

    Know the difference.

    Thank you for the kind words. I'm still very young so I don't plan on rushing into this; at least to start out, I want one large project that will go far, not lots of tiny ones.
    In regard to money and power, I'm not sure what I'm after. Either way, money is a powerful means of gaining power when nearly everyone is corrupt and bribable. If I ever decide I want power, money will help me get it. If I don't, money will allow for a (relatively) safe and carefree life.
