Investing in cryptocurrency right now is expensive.
The returns could potentially be great, but getting into the cryptocurrency market now requires some serious wealth and financial resources.
In this blog, we’re going to have some fun with the idea of crypto and showcase the most expensive round-trip flight you can buy for the price of the world’s three most expensive cryptocurrencies (according to coinmarketcap.com, as of Feb. 16th 2022).
Here we go.
A single Bitcoin is priced at $43,500.64 USD.
This means that for the price of roughly one Bitcoin, you can fly First Class from New York to Hong Kong on Lufthansa Airlines. In other words, for the same cost as a single Bitcoin, you can enjoy a Lufthansa flight experience covering 8,045 miles that includes valet airport parking service, a personal assistant, a dedicated first-class terminal and lounge and more. This is all before you even board the flight, which offers “Michelin quality” cuisine and premium comfort for sleep, among other things.
Have enough money to afford one Bitcoin? Consider buying one or treat yourself to one of the most prestigious flight experiences available… the choice is yours.
2. Yearn Finance
A single unit of Yearn Finance’s cryptocurrency is priced at $23,247.72 USD.
This means that for the price of roughly one unit of this crypto (actually less than the full price, as this flight costs roughly $22,000 USD), you can fly First Class from New York to Singapore on Swiss Air. Swiss Air's first-class amenities include complimentary pyjamas, Michelin-starred food and La Prairie skincare products as part of an amenity kit in case you need to freshen up before landing. Can you imagine how amazing it would be to fly to a beautiful destination like Singapore, a distance of 9,521 miles, enjoying first class life?
You can do all that for less than the price of one Yearn Finance crypto.
A single Ethereum is priced at $3,059.62 USD.
This means that for the price of roughly one Ethereum, you can fly First Class from New York to Hotan, China (via kayak). That is a distance of 6,808 miles, an entire distance that you can travel… and we can’t stress this enough… in style on a first class flight.
Obviously, first class amenities and perks vary by airline but no matter what airline you use, we are sure you would enjoy yourself.
Well, that’s it for this blog, folks.
Isn’t it kind of crazy how far in the world you can travel, in absolute luxury no less, for the price of a single unit of these different cryptocurrencies?
