⚓️ you've been ratioshack'ed
gm. how are you coping with the value of your NFT portfolio right now? yesterday, I offered the food hack of cracking an egg in your ramen.
today’s hack for dealing with the bear market:
fish stick sandwich
get some hamburger buns, a slice of cheese, and those frozen fish sticks at the supermarket. bam. you got yourself another cheap meal to cry into.
however, if you are back to working at McDonald’s I would understand why you wouldn’t want to eat this. it’s just so damn similar to the Filet O Fish…
in times like these, we could all use a laugh.
for me at least, that was provided by an unnamed shitposter who got control of the Radioshack Twitter yesterday.
they definitely took time to do their research and hit the ground running…immediately targeting ThreadGuy, MagicEden (Solana marketplace), and Farokh just to name a few.
living up to their new NFT Twitter persona, they also ratio’ed poor Camol of Sappy Seals fame in the process.
while rumors swirled that the person behind Ratioshack was Tai Lopez in disguise (his group purchased their brand in 2021), I’ll take the valued distraction for now.
that is until it’s revealed this was just a marketing ploy used in preparation for RadioShack NFTs or something dumb like that…
Bill Gates ruffled our feathers on Wednesday by slamming crypto and NFTs.
the quote getting a lot of play on the newswire is that he thinks they are based “100% based on greater fool theory”.
essentially, that means he thinks that NFTs are a Ponzi.
he also had time to sarcastically dig that the "expensive digital images of monkeys" will surely "improve the world immensely."
so basically, he’s just doing Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger’s ‘greatest hits’.
it is ironic coming from Gates who faced similar criticism from Luddites who didn’t see the value of computers back in the day. now, he mocks crypto and NFTs whose underlying tech may actually “improve the world immensely”…how does he know it won’t?
I can only hope that one day, I’m 1/1,000,000th as rich as Bill Gates. but I also hope that I’m much more open-minded than him when I’m an old man. we don’t need more old men yelling at the clouds…we need more old men on the chain like Sir Anthony Hopkins!
I mean, look at this guy! you keep going on that NFT journey, king!
yesterday, there was a 1024 ETH purchase of a Bored Ape. again I ask…in this economy? the buyer appears to be a Chinese social media company called Btok. while we can’t verify their claim that they have over 10 million active users, we can speculate whether or not this was a wash trade, because it certainly smells like one.
one of my goals for the year is to get a Twitter follow from Alexis Ohanian (just throwing that out there if anyone can help with this). yesterday, he showed off what looks like a sweet Rainbow Wallet/ENS integration that will allow them to pick an ENS domain when they set up their Rainbow wallet. whatever we need to do to make it easier to register ENS domains, I’m game!
