looks like those who don't waste their money on #NFTs, are wasting their time being angry about them instead 🤔.
@sofia somewhat, yes, at least I do -- but that's because I care deeply about digital human rights, rights of artists, and access to culture.
All of these are threatened by NFTs, and I notice people either:
1. have no idea about NFTs
2. are very pro and vocal
3. are quite against but not very vocal
End result is that NFT proponents are much more vocal and visible, and are effectively controlling the debate. I find that dangerous.
@rysiek i don't think NFTs can really do that. if they really can, than only as a tiny extension of the plague called intellectual property. i'd wish people were more vocal about _that_ instead.
im my filter bubble, i've never seen a positive mention of them. but i've seen a redfash wanting "all coinbros on the wall" 🙄…
and like technically NFTs aren't really about claiming ownership of artworks, it's more of a solution waiting for a problem.
"guarantees of the uniqueness and long-term value of NFTs"
A license that has to be enforced by a centralized court system can't possibly be reconciled with the core values of blockchains and NFTs.
If their NFT isn't "unique" then it's not nonfungible. And if their decentralized blockchain solution requires a centralized court system to work then it's not decentralized 😂
@rysiek @Hyolobrika @sofia I think it's interesting because it clearly indicates that some people using NFTs misunderstood what an NFT does and now they're trying to shoehorn NFTs into a solution that satisfies their real need.
But if the problem is solved through copyright, then the NFT component is just a energy wasting buzzword.
They also (by design) do not provide any possibility of human intervention. Somebody tricks you and steals your domain from you? You're shit out of luck my friend, time to change the name of your company or organization. Nothing can be done.
Unless of course, like with DAO, the developers decide that this is bad…
