Wow, who knew the cryptocurrency market was so popular among retro-footwear enthusiasts? Seriously, I’m sure I had at least two pairs of those shoes in the 80’s. WHERE DID YOU FIND THEM CALL ME PEOPLE???? Ah, the heady days of suede Adidas and North Stars.
But I digress. You’re here for the numbers (which reminds me of the pecking order in school, as interpreted by the stripes on your shoes) and here they are: Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin and Unobtanium, which bills itself as “a cryptocurrency of serious traders,” as, I suppose, opposed to all the other ones. It’s also got an ultimate end to production, meaning that only 250,000 units will be created. After that the price will not be diluted by continued production, but will free float according to market forces. We shall see how the experiment goes.
Bitcoin: $581.16 and down again, $23 from yesterday!
Litecoin: $6.8745 and significantly down, fifty cents!
Dogecoin: $0.00017824 and back down again. I knew it couldn’t last.
