I was half-assed working on a post about how I became interested in crypto and the challenges I faced learning about it. All the dumb things I did as a n00b and how good it felt when I finally got it. Well, enough of it anyway. There is just so much new technology with more being developed every day. I can never hope to keep up with it all. I’m content with my very basic understanding of the blockchain and that there are many ways it can be built upon. This is all still somewhat unreal to me though, and I must confess, that I still prefer tangible/physical objects over virtual ones, and I probably always will. I’m old school like that.
When I heard that someone had taken a IRL mortgage to buy virtual property in the metaverse, it blew my mind. It
just sounds like a dumb thing to do, to me. I know, I’m wrong and they are probably going to profit from this bold move in ways I can’t even imagine. I may not be around to see how it all comes together, and I have no desire to anyway. I hope it works out for you younger folks and isn’t as bad as the dystopia I envision it to be.
To get to the point, I was approached by a very nice Aussie bloke who wanted to interview me for his blog. I couldn’t comprehend why he would want to, but I agreed. After much procrastinating, self doubt, and second guessing I finally submitted my replies to the interview questionnaire and it was published a couple days later. So, since it turned out to be an approximation of the story I was not working very hard on already, I am going to just put a link to it here, rather than an original composition. I’m lazy, what can I say
Thank you, Andrei, for being so patient with me and giving me time to work out what I wanted to say and how I wanted to say it. I may never have gotten it down on virtual paper had it not been for you. You did me a great service by putting my words out there into the blogosphere as I was not making any progress on my own. You gave me that little push that I needed, and for that, I will always be grateful. ~Namaste
