I know it's a scam and I know that people are incredibly stupid on average, but I still cannot believe that somebody would pay for a "unique" garbagecoin that just has a URL or other random data inside of it, and has zero legal/physical/real power.
Are they fooled into believing that they are actually buying the physical thing it "represents"? Why would they pay for it? Why would anyone put any amount of value on such a nonsensical thing?
How is it different from me writing "a super awesome Ferrarri sports car" on a piece of paper and handing it to a little kid, claiming that if they give me all their candy, they can have this piece of paper which means they own an expensive car?
I genuinely can't believe that people pay any amount of money for these worthless things, especially not the insane sums cited over and over again. What am I missing? I must be missing something, because I won't accept "people are stupid" as the answer. Even stupid people have some sort of logic to them, but this just makes no sense at all.
