I think I'd look back with regret from the seat of my lambo a few years later if I squandered the opportunity of being at the start of the new internet with a bag of money in my hand.
Whether you are in this to help realise the vision or to capitalise on it, I think the big win will come from building on or reinvesting in SAFE either way. Just imagine how big some of the services will get when it really does start to take over! If SAFEcoin is booming it means that reality is looking more likely.
I'm quite happy with my vauxhall for now . Luxuries are liabilities, I want to help push the world in the right direction and to make sure my family has some security. I don't need a fancy car.
Money is just a way to subdue our sense of insecurity isn't it?! We're all scared that we won't have enough for ourselves or we won't be able to provide enough for others. You don't need a lot of money to feel financially 'secure' though. You just need to invest in passive incomes and get them to exceed your monthly outgoings (that's the aim of the game imo), so you get a little richer each month doing nothing. Then you have the time and financial security to do whatever it is that you really want to do. Security is freedom after all.
Having too much money at once is corrupting. I've been a gambler all my life and had my fair share of windfalls and made my share of stupid mistakes with it. Buying expensive things never made me happy for long.
I hope people spend their money wisely when SAFE does hit the mainstream, those will be some seriously life-defining decisions if it goes as we all hope.
God I sound like a patronising know-it-all most of the time don't I?! lol /sorry.
