Chasing the dragon.

It’s a cool sounding phrase, with bad connotations.

It’s usually used in relation to addicts, and their endless hunt for the blissful high that lasts a lifetime.

That high, of course, doesn’t exist. And eventually the dragon will destroy you.

The idea is applicable to a lot of things, especially crypto.

And, for many people, being insanely wealthy is the blissful high that lasts a lifetime.

Or at least, they believe it would be.

Of course, crypto isn’t really about money. It’s about decentralisation, democracy, and making the world a better place.

And it achieves decentralisation, democracy and making the world a better place by placing a monetary value on every single action and interaction.

Oh. I guess maybe it is all about money after all.

For the last year or so, a big chunk of that money has been flowing into Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs).
