管工的故事

热度 2已有 1475 次阅读2022-2-4 04:15 |个人分类:笔记|系统分类:时事

前几天我找人把家里的热水器换了,管工蹲着(其实几乎是趴在地板上)工作时我在旁观摩,一个50岁的白人。他突然问道,你投资 cryptocurrency 吗?我说没有。他说他大量投入了。我心中暗暗吃惊,因为几年前有个给我修草坪喷水装置的工人也是在趴着用手掏泥巴的时候问起我是否投资 bitcoin。那位说美金就是废纸,比特币才是未来。当时一个比特币约8000美金,现在翻了若干倍。这位管工说他一个朋友买了一个什么 crypto(crypto 几千种,他说的名字我没记住),涨了多少倍。

我笑道小心这是 Ponzi scheme 啊,最好先把本给收回了。他说那肯定的,先 take out some profits. 他说,这些 kids (指互联网新秀们)很会玩,我们不会,跟着就好了。他说,现在美国的蓝领已经跟过去不同了,觉醒了。我暗暗吃惊,也没有深入追问觉醒什么,只是脑海中闪过了一些阶级革命的理论以及历史。他又说,当然了,白领有优势也是应该的,因为你们辛辛苦苦读书了。还说,当年要好好读书就好了,当年只知道 chase girls,现在只能做蓝领。我说,你 had a  lot of fun 嘛。他表示同意。

临到走时他说,你应该买点虚拟房产,肯定会涨的。我说,不错的 idea,等涨了卖掉买个真的豪宅。

看来元宇宙概念与虚拟货币都已经深入到了美国社会的劳工阶层,哪天暴雷,也许会引发剧烈的社会动荡。

而现在,可以考虑开发平行宇宙,销售行星甚至星系,都是用 NFT 证明所有权、可靠的永久资产。

MingHao: Ponzi scheme 感谢提醒
It is worse than Ponzi Scheme - at least on paper, a Ponzi Scheme may sound more or less making sense. Remember Madoff? He had the credibility as a money manager...  Crypto's value is simply out of nowhere. If I were to show someone a cap of a bottle of coke and assure him that it is a Byzantine gold coin, at least I would have had a real plastic cap, wouldn't I. Crypto? It is like that I tell you that I could have, would have, and should have some kind of conceptual / virtual coke bottle cap and it is worth a million bucks. God forbid that if enough mad men are crazy enough to fake their belief of this "thing", who-the-hell can say the MOFO isn't real?

    Ask Elon Musk if he is willing to accept one bitcoin for a Model Y.
