tbh what this NFT/cryptocurrency/$GME/etc speculation points at for me is that we have a bunch of folks who finally have some level of access to the money making schemes usually reserved for the upper middle to upper classes and it's just exposing how awful the whole idea is.
You shouldn't be able to make a bunch of money passively just for having money and contributing literally nothing else to the situation. But that's what people are feeling a ton of FOMO about. It's a fucking gold rush.
@zkat Between NFT/crypto, the meme stock/penny market, etc, it feels like we're in a gold rush gold rush right now. So many get rich quick platforms.
