Finally figured out what the deal is with people complaining about a so-called "". They expected to get rich quick and it turned out to not be so easy.

Yo, who lied to you that anyone could make it big? Pro tip: in a gold rush, It's mostly the shovel makers who end up with big money.

@notimetoplay there's a lot of content creators making a living telling people to make games, selling courses etc. when they can't live from just that themselves.

@timkrief Yes, exactly! And past a certain point it starts resembling a pyramid scheme. "Had little luck digging for gold? Change careers! Sell these shovels for me and I'll give you a cut."
