I voted "NO" as I was late getting to the party, placed my reservation February 2017. Had wanted one since I had first seen the S in 2012 but financially that could never happen unless I win the Lottery.
or unless you would have gotten a measly $200 worth of bitcoin back then (kicking myself)

I mined bitcoins for several years back in 2011-2012 or so and sold them more or less immediately. When I look back at my wallet and look at all the ones I sold - as I recall for around $10-20 or so, it's all a bit depressing. But almost as bad, I remember selling mining and selling literally hundreds of litecoins for something like $0.15-20/each (they are approaching $100/each now. :| ) In hindsight, I was stupid. But at the time, it was like $100/month of "free" money and I'd have never guessed it was ever going to be worth all that much.

I thought it was pointless... then a couple years later bitcoin was $400 (had just dropped from $700) and I thought, yeah, it hit a bubble and burst and now it's not going to go anywhere.

If I'd put my $1000 Model 3 reservation into Ethereum in April 2016 I'd have $47k now

Bought a few bitcoin in light of a possible global financial meltdown within the next year. If the dollar loses its value then maybe smart money would have already been invested in Bitcoin. SHTF diversification strategy.

Well maybe crypto currency is still new but I know that there are already some agencies who accept payments by bitcoin in Europe. For example I heard that French Riviera property can be bought by Bitcoin, isn't it crazy?
