I know you needed a rational way to get your head around NFTs. You can own this one for $65 million. LOL

In case you aren't joking, Tumblr is still alive and kicking. 327 Million Unique Visitors in January. I'm confused by it sometimes too, but I think it got better with WordPress?

But if you research more you will see that in fact "Tulip Mania" is a fake story described in the Wiki you cited as: "a meaningless winter drinking game played by a plague-ridden population" & is based on German propaganda pamphlets / childrens stories written 100 years later...
