Towards Grandiose, Fantastical Thinking

Posted On Jun 15, 2022 By Addison Wiggin

Back in 2009, author Jeffery Tucker gave me one Bitcoin. He was sitting in my office, incredulous, and wanted to prove to me it was a real thing. He opened a wallet, gave it to me. It might have cost him a dollar at the time.

Imagine my chagrin over the years… Bitcoin hit $67,000 last November.

“Dude,” I remember asking him in 2015 or so, “where’s my Bitcoin?” He didn’t know. I didn’t know.

Millennial Bitcoin millionaires were popping up like the ivy I can’t extinguish on this one side yard section of my house in Baltimore.

Alas, my moment of FOMO (fear of missing out) is or has been strangely extinguished itself today.

This morning Coinbase reports, “Bitcoin plunged as much as 10% to an intraday low of $20,166.” That’s a 70 percent dive since last november, or 10 percent a month, give or take. I’d still be up a small pile if I could find the darn key. But still, sometimes it’s better to just let the speculators do their thing.
