IPv4 addresses used to be gratis. Today they're selling for ~40 USD each. Ford (!!) got 16.7 million IPs for free, hardly using them. Today they're worth $670M, a better value increase than any crypto currency. At the same time new ISPs can't be started because lack of IPs.


@peter Where did you find the ~40 USD price tag?

@peter So first we were rounded up in the clouds and soon the clouds can start charging us for the use of a address. The horror.
