True, there’s no guarantee that your Bitcoin has a future. You can’t come to terms with the fact that there can be an actual currency from memes you save online. It’s impossible to be very hopeful of a currency that springs from photos of cats and how many XKCD animation or Bisaya Short Films memorabilia you have. How plausible does it seem to you that the actual photos you stored in your iCloud or the random scribblings in your SketchBook X in Samsung Galaxy Tab or all those Dead Trigger configuration and model structures – how plausible is it that they can get you some antique reputation? Truly, you can’t get money from all that stuff, can you? Not exactly.

It turns out to be no one’s secret that most of the giant enterprise centers online spring from the idea that old stuff can generate growing value over time. Those Mickey Mouse your neice once threw away at you because you’re acting really weird? That might cost a hundred million dollars if gone to an auction. Those wine bottles that contain some dirty old-smelling obnoxious taste of grapes that just does nothing to you but cause you self-loathing? That’s probably worth more than your all mortgage worth combined. The point here is that money and how it is perceived can really be as subjective as how Martin Amis might have put it in his novel Money. That said, perhaps you can learn a thing or two about how money can change its worth and how antique items can be the next generation’s Renaissance paintings? Here’s an infographic for all the splendor of that.
