Childrens are innocent and playful and they are very good at making up games to play in.
They involve adults easily in the games they play. And the games usually are pure imagination with rules made by the children.
This is perfectly fine as a child, but what if adults do this? I had observed numerous scammy models where people ask for your adult non-imaginary money and promise you impossible things. This is happening now with many crypto projects, but the adults still want to play. This time out of greed.
If you see something being a game and you know something to be a game, expect to have sooner or later losers and winners and the children always win. If you are not the child in the game, it is better to rethink your strategy.
