I remember thinking I was going to retire on my baseball card collection one day back in like 1995 so I can't judge too harshly I guess.

There's a ton of money laundering and price inflation going on from the inside.

so people are definitely using dunk gifs to launder drug money right

And a lot of other stuff. It is much easier to buy a video of Lonzo Ball making a FT in 2018 than obtaining a banking license AKA a license to launder.

It's become a lot more legitimized at least. Ten years ago there were many saying that those involved with it were wasting thousands of dollars and it was going to crash/disappear in short order. But now countries are moving to digital currencies.

The concept becomes less outlandish and absurd when one considers the billions of dollars spent on digital images, sounds and videos. It's the way the world is moving.

One way BTC has been showing its value is that it's deregulated and allows criminals a lot more leeway to do shady stuff. If anything big tech/government willingness to allow cryptovirology to continue to run wild has been underestimated.

Monetary/economic systems around the world have many layers of absurdity built into them. The question becomes what isn't stupid and the answer is very little. The distinction is newness and oldness. The digital stuff is new so it's more noticeable. All kinds of bizarre economic/stock/monetary/financial policies that have existed for dozens or even hundreds of years go unnoticed for the most part.

Evidence that adding KD to the Warriors made them better despite not winning 75+ games. And evidence that the 2016 Spurs could be the greatest non-champions.
