I think we might need to keep in mind that the US isn't quite experiencing the same level of craziness on increasing home prices and affordable housing shortages that we are seeing here in Canada, the problem is way worse up here, I think second only to New Zealand. I feel bad for all the young first time home buyers that are totally fucked here right now.

The crypto ads flooding the super bowl were really gross, but then again, I guess it makes sense in context.

This sounds a lot like the argument against raising the minimum wage, and like that, I think we should first take a hard look at who has the majority of the money/land and who is making bank off of it. Is making housing affordable for people who would otherwise rent really the problem here?

Is having Larry David (the inspiration for George Costanza) in your crypto commercial really a good selling point?

I think so. I said it in the commercial thread but the commercial was humorous and seemed to be aimed at an audience that is not yet into crypto but can understand the simple message of "don't be an old fogey and miss out." I mean this was basically "don't be Larry David/George Costanza," not "George Costanza is into crypto you should be too."
