I can’t stop being white but I can avoid being dependant on cars like the sad cases in all these photos and videos. As have my parents and many of their friends.

@Blurbasaur @AxieInfinity @Jihoz_Axie You're right but the only thing you don't understand is that the reduction to their slp rewards only help slow down the dump of the slp price, it doesn't stop the downfall because they can still farm.
