First a little backstory: I've been trying to source an Xbox series X for like 3 months but I keep missing out on the drops. I finally caved and decided to pay over retail to a scalper just because I had probably $100 worth of my time into just trying to find one.
So I messaged a couple of people on FB marketplace and put up an ad in the local reddit classified saying I would pay 650 cash or 700 in Bitcoin. Multiple people called me a scammer, and the guy I finally made a deal with took the cash. I mean he literally turned down $50 because even if he doesn't want to be a hodl'er he could sell right away.
Guys, we are still in the "giving away free money" stage of adoption.
Thank you for attending my TED talk. See you when Halo drops lol.
