It's called privilege.
Whether you think it's because of pride or principle or morals, the only reason someone turns down $10k is because they're in a privileged position to do so.
wait did she just decline 10k usd worth of ethereum?
this happened last year when cobie tried to pay twitch artists too iirc
some would just straight up decline (in many instances life changing) sums of money
how does one explain …
@rizzn If someone offered me that same deal, I’d respond the same way. Not out of privilege, out of caution. It seems like a scam. In the modern era of Nigerian princes and “we’ve been trying to reach you about your car’s extended warranty,” someone saying “get a crypto wallet and send me the address and I’ll give you $10k” ranks among them. Calling that privilege IS privilege. You’re so financially stable you don’t have to be cautious with your money. I have to watch every penny of every check.
