I’m 1/mo into playing this wonderful drug of a game and curious what the past GPU prices have been like? Would it be wiser to wait for GPU prices to drop or does it look like they’re here to stay? I assume they’ll drop over time as people upgrade their hideouts. Any thoughts welcome thx!!

I have been a bitcoin holdeuseadvocate for some time...I love the anonymity, simplicity of management and control it gives you compared to relying on banks/cards/e-wallets. When it rose to $2500 ish last year I gave everyone who works for me a bitcoin - on the proviso that if they sold it they first paid back my $2500. They’re still up at this price, and it would seem to be a fair and rational degree of growth for a year and a half. If it drops to $2500 no biggie...much beyond that, ok I would be surprised. Anyway...it’s still great. Scaling and usability need solutions but it’s still great and it still works. Hang in there people and enjoy the ride!
