    Funny, that’s exactly what I was thinking while I was reading all of the comments. I see people questioning the intrinsic value of NFTs while we are on a forum dedicated to $100-200k heaps of metal on wheels

    Speaking of Merry Christmas and NFTs, here's an NFT on the world's first text message that just sold for $121,000.

    It read "Merry Christmas".

    I guess that we have to remember that a lot of these assets, including our cars and houses, are denominated in dollars, a fiat currency rapidly losing value as the debt grows. I'm not sure when the illusion stops but I imagine it will. Check this out:

    Happy New Year!

    Cheers,
