I wanted to reset my $ 20, but OpenSea didn’t accept credit cards. To complete the transaction I will need to buy the cryptocurrency Ether. Good! I’m a game. Ether in hand (or, rather, a wallet), I went back to OpenSea and tried to make a purchase. Except by the time I was ready, those first drops had already seemed to be sold out. The price has gone up. Yes. Secondary vendors who may have seen the same Twitter themes I saw are now trying to turn their OG NFT. With a grim resignation I bought some more airtime and tried again.

That’s when I discovered the gas charge, the service charge that Miner charges to check transactions. Being cheap, I lost weight. My transaction never went through. The price of Olive Gardens was still rising. I tried again, this time paying at market rate. Good luck! Katie was so happy.

Except … have you ever tried to give someone NFT? To make the transfer, I had to pay even more for gas. All in all, the humorous purchase I initially assumed would cost me $ 20 and later overestimated it, maybe up to $ 75, ended up costing me almost $ 300.

But hey, my friend Katie has become the owner of, like, a JPEG photo of Olive Garden at a mall in Louisville, Kentucky, on the Ethereum blockchain. What a great gift!

That is it was a great gift for a little over a week when real Olive Garden lawyers have sent OpenSea a notice of liquidation, and all of these incoherent Olive Gardens have disappeared into the air. Poof.

Like I said, money is amazing now. And so this question goes down to how technology is shaping our financial future.

Whether it’s a biometric universal cryptocurrency designed to support Web3, cities built with bitcoin, digital currencies that replace cash, or how iBuying is transforming the housing market, technology is fundamentally changing the way we buy, spend and save money. Even the way we play.

We hope you enjoy this issue and it opens you up to something new about the present that will help you better understand and prepare for the future. Even if it is just in advance to take into account the budget payment for gas.
