Nothing Says Romance Like Cryptocurrency

It's just so romantical.

Recently, on not a day of Christmas, some scammer gave to me about five bucks in cryptocurrency.1 That $4.41 worth of bitcoin is currently valued at $3.76, down 15% in under two weeks, so I guess I won’t be retiring quite yet. Nevertheless, it’s been fun to check on this free “money”, which lives inside the app.

Even more fun is what I espied when I happened to open the app shortly before Valentine’s Day. That’s when I was presented with this ad:

An ad that says “This Valentine's Day, take your loved one to dinner and pay with crypto. Find a great restaurant near you”.

I don’t know about you, but that certainly sounds like a sexy Valentine’s Day to me.
