Wow. So I have some things to say about cryptocurrency and NFT's. To sum up those feelings in a single sentence, it would go like this. I fucking hate them with a fiery, burning passion and wish everyone involved in inventing them and perpetrating the fraud they enabled would be rounded up and loaded into rockets destined to deposit them in Sagittarius A*.

Lottery tickets pose a practical problem that I did not anticipate when I designed the experiment. To physically get them, I have to go to the gas station, which means that I have to (1) need gas and (2) be willing to go inside and (3) actually have cash to buy a lottery ticket. I might go get gas tomorrow and get the remaining $54 in lottery tickets, but I will have to go to the ATM. :rolleye1:

The experiment ends on Monday. My precious BCH took a bit of a turn, now -9.2%. This is how diamond hands are made.

Regional chain convenience store(s) in my area have full service kiosks that provide scratcher types and other local and regional big money lottery tickets. So that you don't have to spend "real" money to gamble your life away.

Some places here have a thing where you can buy opportunities to lose at the gas pump using your debit card, but seems super convoluted. Like something to do with an app or creating an account.

Is the best part the part where he expected his ex to be “considerably worse off” or that he expects her to cover his gambling problem?

BCH liquidated. Final performance: -5.7%. Actually better than I expected. Had I sold at peak I would have made like $35, at bottom I would have been out ~$18.

Savings account is the big winner, I made five cents.

I guess the lottery ticket arm is technically incomplete but I'm comfortable concluding non-superiority and non-equivalence.

ETA: $100 in an S&P 500 ETF woudl have returned ~4.5% over the same term.
