"Future Influencer" is an unconventional sci-fi adventure where humanity and AI join forces to paint images of the future. Each episode of this light-hearted journey will tickle your imagination and offer a much-needed dose of fun in our ever-evolving digital age. So, why not come along for the ride?

It wasn’t long before Clippy stopped again, announcing, “Here we are.” Standing in front of a nondescript office building, Clippy lowered her tone. “When we go in there, I’ll create a distraction, you grab the nearest hardware wallet, and we’ll leg it. You can run, right?”

I wasn’t sure whether my look of horror or her own joke made Clippy erupt with a deep belly laugh. “Relax, I’m kidding. This isn’t some weird catch-22 where you need clams to store clams. Welcome to the Department of Revenue Storage; the cyber-state will issue you a hardware wallet. We go in, you answer some questions, and they give you a wallet. It’s nothing fancy, but it gets you started.”
