    I think the trouble that a lot of people have in understanding NFTs is that they don't really make that much sense anyways

  • PowWow

    What a waste of money. It's like you have so much overflow of cash you want to show off. It's modern/digital clout chasing. That's all NFTs are. Thanks Beeple for explaining! Congrats on becoming rich because of selfish upper class. I hope you use the money more effectively than those who bought your work.

    So to me, this sounds like regular art but you can buy it digitally, after all, people already buy art with the hopes that it will increase in price.

  • $hervi

    The second he said that multiple people could own it I was out. Then that whole fucking thing makes no sense come in ;D

  • MrVipitis

    Owning fine art is actually investment and tax evasion. Owning digital art is not limiting And royalties on every sale going back to the artists is sadly not what is happening in the real world (only some examples). Two months later this sounds like a bubble. And it's based on ETH which will change massively in the future.

  • asteiner274

    Wow, he is the best example for a Wisconsin accent. 'Yooper' and SE accents are a bit different, but his is somewhere between in between, and pretty strong.

  • Viruzzz

    What a joke. What do you actually own? You don't own the artwork, Anybody can go look at that. You just own a kind of signature, a signature that's worth nothing. Also why does this guy immediately pull his mask down and eventually take it completely off? What the fucks the point? He seems pretty freaking full of himself.

  • justOnerandomguy

    Beeple been on his grind for forever, good for him he got his bag, don’t necessarily agree with everything he says but respect nonetheless

    The thing about gas fees is that it's stupid and outdated. Cardano and ETH2.0 will fix this. He is wrong in saying that everybody agrees that there should be a high gas fees.

    NFT's are the new youtube/tiktok/twitch etc. basically the new thing that the regular person can make a living from and get money and fame, the problem is when the big companies come in and start figuring out how to do it and the little guy gets left behind again. so as an artist myself, now would be the time to jump in, because i know from seeing the ''hollywoodisation'' of youtube, and then their trying to jump on tiktoks medium and twitchs, etc. its not gonna be long before things like film studios and games companies are selling concept art from games and movies as NFT's and people buy those more than the art made by regular joe artists that are just as good. so get in while the goings good i say, before the big guys come in and ruin the whole thing like they have with every other space us regular peeps made trend first.

    If an artist takes part in a system they already know has a damaging effect on the environment, regardless of what the actual source of that damage is within the system, and that system isn't a mandatory part of life under current civilization, then yeah, the artist is kinda part of the problem, Wren. You can talk about being aware of the damage something creates all you want, but if you're actively contributing to that damage at any step, those words don't mean much. This isn't wage slavery under capitalism where you have no choice but to participate, this is something you can abstain from until improvements are made, or make steps towards those improvements yourself. If you use NFTs with the goal of improving it in mind, more power to you, but most people are just doing it to make some money, consequences be damned. If the English alphabet was destroying the world, and you said "It's okay because I only like the letters X, Y, and Z", it's not okay, because you're still upholding a cog that contributes to the operation of the machine.

    I was able to build a big income stream during the covid-19 pandemic investing with a professional broker,Mrs Elizabeth Graham, I have been making huge profits on my investments ever since i started trading with her, Mrs Elisabeth Graham's trading strategies are top notch.

      Amazing I also just started trading with Mrs Elizabeth Graham,she is the best at what she does with an initial investment of$1400 i made up to $5230 in just a week of trading with her,her strategies are mind blowing.

      I have traded with a lot of individuals but I have never come across anyone as good as Mrs Elizabeth Graham, just by applying her strategies, I now trade independently. she is the best I'd advise any novice in investing to trade with her.

      with the consistent weekly profits I'm getting investing with Mrs Elizabeth Graham there's no doubt, she is the most reliable in the market, such a genius.

    You need to look how much energy is spent on current financial system transactions and verification, gold mining, mining of commodities that produce the materials and machines that your camera equipment, clothing, computers, buildings etc are made from. The energy involved in their creation or development process of education (unique skills) is what gives them scarcity and value

  • Ugly German Truths
    Ugly German Truths

    Who the Frigg is "agreeing that you own" this shite NOW? Only the couple of thousand folks that have bought into this crap meaning anything. The important bit IS the screenshotable, the "owning a definite certificate" is absolutely meaningless except as monetary investment, which is the awful side of art and not laudable in the least.

    • Ugly German Truths
      Ugly German Truths

      Also another ethical problem (beyond the environmental impact of any blockchain process) is that right now Crypto-anything is heavily overrun with moneylaundering. Warlords, drug cartels, human trafficking, putting a couple of (hundred) Million into untraceable "currency" and getting it out at around 1 : 1 values is very popular right now... How do artists guard against this and not just accept that they make money laundering for really bad criminal activities worthwhile? Opening new directly marketable spaces for digital art sounds like a great idea, but is it worth to be built on blood, death and exploitation of human beings on top of everything else???

    I actually don’t think this is going to last. NFT’s will only be successful for big name artists who are already at the top. Grunts and nobodies will never be able to make money off of NFT’s. They’ll just get screwed.

    A quick rundown on what NFT is : Think of it as the comic books with the rare issue numbers & how people "trade" those NFTs are the digital versions of that u own the comic book yes, but the copyright is still Marvel's u own the art yes, but the copyright is still the artist's

  • bwood1234qwert

    So nfts fart are just as dumb as they sound. You get to say I am the true owner. With a Picasso you actually own the physical item Picasso painted With this you can say you own it but the copy you have is exactly the same as copies other people can have. So it's an ego thing purely. Basically a great way for people to create money out of literally nothing.

    Do traditional banks not have a larger & far worse footprint, especially if you consider their investments? It'd be a lot easier for the blockchain to go green than banks let's put it that way.

    NFT puff piece from someone who makes money off of NTFs. Immediately tried to lecture people for being annoyed by people ignoring the downsides because they're making money off of it.

    So, what stops people from taking existing art they don't have te rights to, and just minting that and essentially "claiming ownership"? or taking an already minted piece, and just minting it again? with maybe one pixel shaded one shade darker if needed-

    Fungible - When someone buys a BTC on the market, there's less available & thus the price of everyone else's Bitcoin goes UP... cos there's no difference between your BTC & my BTC. Non-Fungible - You buy a $100,000 NFT & the price of MY NFT does not go up. Your NFT is different from my NFT - They're NON Fungible Tokens Your NFT is a market all by itself & the people who collect NFTs are the buyers. It's risky. Only buy if you don't mind the value of it goes DOWN if new NFT buyers stop buying... Buy NFTs because you want to OWN & HOLD it...

    Is this kind of like when people pay money to buy rare WOW mounts like you can't physically use it but it's cool to show off in game? I don't really know what pleasure people feel when paying for NFT. Not that artists don't deserve support but it can be done through other forms, it's hard for me to comprehend the thoughts behind this from a consumer POV.

  • Jens Nielsen

  • ainteasya

    Wow that shit made no sense

  • mdoerkse

    NFTs make sense as deeds for real world assets. They also make sense as unique items in games. They do not make sense for digital artwork that can be experienced by others for free, especially if they don't grant you copyright. You are essentially buying nothing but a claim that you supported the artist for some particular artwork, but the connection between the artwork and the NFT is arbitrary. Sure, the NFT may point to an IPFS address, but anybody can view what is at that address.
