For the record, this is a shit-post about my purchasing history- in which I've officially stopped buying new sneakers as of 2021. After seeing how people stopped eating and started buying crypto changed their lives, I decided to see what I've had hypothetically lost over the brief span of few years.
I used to buy sneakers. Over the recent years, I've started buying Jordans to wear and collect them. These are the list of recent purchases since 2019, and how it would've been if I used the same amount (RRP) to buy BTC instead-
Note: Since size is important in the sneaker resell market, I'm Size 11.
And this is my 'What if I bought BTC instead" situation-
Well, well, well- I would've been better off buying BTC by a margin of USD 12,227.56. If I had kept all of my shoes in deadstock condition and resold it, I would've only gained USD 3,128.00.
I'm gonna stop buying shoes for the next few years and start putting in the same amount (and more) into crypto and see what happens in 3-5 years.
