How many cows is your daughter worth?

A perfectly normal dilemma facing any household leader of millennia long past.

How many cows is this year’s crop worth?

How many cows to buy the gold leaf of Athena’s shield?

We don’t measure wealth in cows anymore, but it’s still a pretty good measure of wealth.

How much is a cow worth anyway?

Five barrels of Brent Crude Oil.

A third of an ounce of gold.

A tenth of an pound of Saffron.

0.025 of a Bitcoin (today).

0.0013 of a Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT (but more tomorrow).

500 dollars.

300 of the queen’s pounds.

One cow.

It’s all the same, as long as we agree.
