@entreprecariat 'I believed that the idea of registering digital art on the blockchain was ridiculous'
What changed your mind?
@rra let's put it like this: I still find it ridiculous, but I can't ignore the economy that NFT and stuff are "generating".
@rra from wp: "The NFT market value tripled in 2020, reaching more than $250 million. During the first quarter of 2021, NFT sales exceeded $2 billion."
@entreprecariat @rysiek @rra if your initial conclusion was simply that it was ridiculous, you were absolutely not wrong. after the hype explosion earlier this year the space is now mostly a cesspool of crypto pump-and-dumpers (NFTs help create a smokescreen of legitimacy around crypto in general) with a few diehard artists still begging for attention at the fringes.
