We’ve heard predictions of the imminent economic collapse in the west for decades. But with the Fed printing more US dollars than ever before in history, the signs of the end sure seem to be drawing nearer. In this episode, we speak with an author who has been writing about these economic and political issues in fiction books.

A year ago you may have gotten away with laughing at NFTs as silly little profile pictures of cartoon apes and penguins. But if you are still laughing, it’s probably because you are laughing all the way to the bank. NFTs are still in the early adopter phase, but some companies are pushing towards mainstream adoption by bringing practical services to the masses. In this episode of this special sponsored crypto spotlight episode, we introduce you to NFT.com. With this service, NFT owners and industry enthusiasts will be able to have their own NFT gallery via a personal profile, that is in itself an NFT.
Sound interesting? We’re fascinated by it, so much so that this is a dual release on both Bad Crypto AND The Nifty Show. Regardless of where you are listening, we welcome you to the future and ask if NFT.com is the next big thing on episode #604 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.
