Adafruit Now Accepting Payments in Gold-Pressed Latinum

Want to get a Minty Boost to charge your phaser, but don’t have any 21st-century Hyoo-mon money? No worries! We’re happy to announce that Adafruit is now accepting Gold-Pressed Latinum at checkout.

Gold-Pressed Latinum is the favored currency throughout the Alpha Quadrant, because unlike other ‘precious’ metals, Latinum cannot be replicated. That means it holds its value, and is a good investment.

We’ve had several requests to implement this feature, and we’re glad to do it. Because a happy customer is a good customer. And, to quote Rule of Acquisition #57:

“Good customers are as rare as latinum—treasure them.”

p.s. no refunds.

  1. Sad thing is as messed up as things have been lately I can’t tell the jokes from the real stories.

  2. Your hyu-mon replicator for a bar and two strips worth of liquid latinum. No need to put it in a box, just leave it in an open area free of cats.

  3. I love it. 🙂 I hate Money anyway, Latinum it is!

    Question: In this quadrant of the galaxy, what is the Gold Dust to Latinum ratio? I need to make sure its right of course, a proper ferengi would be able to tell!
