NFTs (thread now extremely NSFW)

figured it's time for a thread outside the standard crypto one to post about NFTs. I see a lot of people making money off of them, but I don't like 'em (I've never been good at making money).

Currently they remind me of the "buy a star" type businesses, but idk

I remember when I worked in crypto, encountering enthusiasts at meetups, the general perception among devotees was that it was going to be a force for economic equality. Turns out it's just another great way for the rich and well-connected to get richer! Who could have seen this coming???

out of all of the recent articles and lectures about NFTs that I've looked at, I've yet to see anything about them that makes them have any value other than people seem to be paying a lot of money for certain ones. So idk, is the fact that purchasers are seeing this worthless/pointless thing as being valuable enough for it to have a future?

I think they are mostly dumb & bad. Sure, artists could use them to make a lot of money if 1) they're already successful and have a dedicated fanbase, or 2) they have a lot of rich friends/connections.

Sure, streaming to the whole world for micropennies didn't work, but that doesn't mean that going back to the patronage system is the answer.

All this really is is a way to create a digital certificate of authenticity. I guess that's ok but doesn't strike me as game-changing. I don't see it as a revolution for the art world, more like the creation of a somewhat pointless digital memorabilia market. I don't think there will be any significant market for non-celebrity-driven NFTs. I think there are enough silicon valley assholes, marks, bitcoiners etc. with unreasonably stupid amounts of money to keep sales of the more famous of these going for a while. Upper middle class people buy (non-famous) paintings and middle class people buy prints and posters because they make your home look nice. NFTs don't have any real world value along those lines, they're solely digital collectibles. And I get a bit of a Second Life vibe from the energy around them, which makes me wonder how long they'll really last as a phenomenon.

I would just add to my previous comment: it actually makes me sort of sad to think about all the scams and grifts that have come to define the space, not because they weren't predictable (at least 50% of the major players to come down the pike since Satoshi, by my estimation, are/were full-on grifters or con men), but because I met a lot of people who really were hoping for a more ethical alternative to the financial system that had just screwed so many, and didn't (just) see crypto as a get-rich-quick scheme

A lot of it is very likely to be money laundering (like pretty much every cryptocurrency thing), or just financial speculation shenanigans - it's worth it for people to spend big to bolster the hype, as long as they can manage to sell what they bought for even more before the market crashes. I would be a little surprised if most of the hype doesn't die out before the end of the year, it doesn't seem to have the sort of longer term speculation potential as bitcoin does but idk

i had one digital acquaintance who appears to have gotten (even more?) rich off of this. she made the same gif over and over, a shot of a CRT TV screen, panning left and right, 500 different times over. lately she got really into the NFT scene and was early and made a bunch of money.

i guess at one stage in my life i might have tried. at this point, i shake my fist at it and say YOU DUMB FUCKS

Zach_TBD (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 10 March 2021 08:58 (one year ago) link

then again, i'm literally litsening to a simple twist of fate right now, so maybe it is i who is the dumb fuck

Zach_TBD (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 10 March 2021 08:59 (one year ago) link

my initial thoughts on NFT were that that some aspects of it were worthwhile goals: mainly, some sort of "ownership" over a digital file (and now, i realize, not just digital), some sort of means of tracking who made something. when i made more things, i would get really frustrated about seeing people use my things wholesale - boingboing does it like every 9 months and i always publicly whine about them. even though i'm sure they're wearing dirty jeans like i am.

but everest (see that tweet/medium essay) makes good points that acknowledge that but also make clear that this particular implementation of it fucking blows. i think i'm more optimistic about it than they are. but yeah, i follow some gif dude who has had a handful of his gifs already "minted" by someone else - i mean, what? is this just the first gold rush where you're a dumbass if you don't mint everything you made that might be valuable? ...or is everyone just a giant fucking asshole?

Zach_TBD (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 10 March 2021 09:05 (one year ago) link

you can browse through all the shit that's being minted. it's so bad. everything is bad. but i may be missing the forest for the trees. there are so many things being "minted" every minute, now. wtf does this mean? what if everything became minted? what if everything was auto-minted and part of a market, whether we wanted that or not? is there anything preventing someone from minting ILX as token? wtf am i even talking about? what a fucking asshole? what the fuck? see what i mean

Zach_TBD (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 10 March 2021 09:07 (one year ago) link

then imagine you visit this thread in 4 months and some jerk has made $45K off of it on NFT and you don't even know how

Zach_TBD (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 10 March 2021 09:09 (one year ago) link

anyway, maybe this will be the rare crypto thing that gets regulated, because now Giphy (I think owned by facebook?) is mad about NFTs using Giphy images (which are actually made by real people, not them) so they're issuing a very official Twitter "hey-quit-it" notification to all

Zach_TBD (Karl Malone), Wednesday, 10 March 2021 09:10 (one year ago) link

NFT's value is built upon an escalating equation that becomes more difficult to solve. as everest says:

...in a digital context scarcity must be constructed- there is nothing that demands the next block in the blockchain be harder to make than the last. If anything, the opposite should be true- computers grow ever more efficient and p"owerful. This means any scarcity is artificial, a process that demands ever more energy, ever more resources lost to continue to operate and return, for no other reason than to insure that tomorrow it will be even more expensive- which makes the wastefulness of today a good investment.

This is why cryptocurrency is valuable. There is nothing high-tech about it. There is no miracle. It is simply futures speculation without the speculation- no guessing required, because we know it will be more wasteful tomorrow; it is baked into the tech.
All that cryptocurrency does is abstract resources into a market by making those resources unavailable to the future.

right?

honestly i am unfollowing #NFT evangelists, though. the shit is gross. don't know what else to say, it's just sad. i do understand why some people disregard the whole "cosmically unnecessary electricity usage at a time when ...god am i writing this again? fuck" thing - no one's making money off of digital art, or if you did you had to sell your soul in order to get compensated. and now this is finally a chance for some people to buy a couple lottery tickets, mint their cool shit, and hope it takes off and makes them some money. i guess i can understand that. i think it's wrong to do, when you're aware of what the actual costs are, or if you imagine a world where NFTs were successful and transactions continued to exponentially grow. that's why the evangelists bother me, because they should know better

Further Mr Bean NFT drops with FOMO Lab are planned throughout 2022. Keep up to date by joining the official Discord channel.

I understand "what if we made some kind of grifting platform for rich people through made up bullshit" because that's like "the stock market" and "equity." And I understand the scarcity model, because that's streetwear, vinyl records, Funko Pops, etc.

But at no point does combining those two things mean you have to create "art" or pretend it's "art" or, in fact, make some of the ugliest, shittiest "art" I've ever seen. They could have just made "NFTs" a weird little dot or a QR code or a long number or anything, but they ended up these algorithmically generated dogshit eyesores that have little stories and imaginary video games and music videos.

Whiney G. Weingarten, Tuesday, 10 May 2022 21:15 (one week ago) link

these algorithmically generated dogshit eyesores that have little stories and imaginary video games and music videos.

i think they keep ending up making things like this because they're trying to do creation-by-committee. early adopters get the "reward" of joining a discord to figure out what they're going to make. (note, already at this point, this is living hell. absolute living hell. as a reward.) who knows how the fuck that goes. but in that scenario, an evergreen proposal would be "let's figure out a way to auto-generate our creative output! we can be more like managers setting the initial parameters and shape of the system -- it's way more efficient that way, and also, that would enable us to keep expanding while keeping the costs of production low!"

that's a fucking terrible idea, but it's also one that you can apply to just about anything. more importantly, it changes the creative burden for those tasked with figuring out what kind of "art" they're making it, and it becomes more like a collaborative homework assignment with the biggest group of turds you've ever been assigned to work with. of course the way they shape the parameters of their generative systems is boring and tacky and ugly as hell.

if you take those 100 individual cryptofucks and asked TWO of them to come up with a strong idea on their own, you might, by chance, pick two people whose unique awfulness would collide to create something both disturbing and mesmerizing. but take 100 people's shitty ideas and average them all out by group consensus, it's like taking every single color and mixing them together. you get peanut butter

what do you mean by videogames?

because believe it or not i had another paragraph in there that i deleted, about videogames. nothing big, just that there's been a huge jump in crowd-sourced "early access" games in the last several years, where the community gives feedback to the developer and it's supposed to be a "collaboration" before the actual release of the game, to tailor the game to the community's expectations. and how, that ends up reliably creating hits and games that people play, but it's also weird and very conspicuous how so many games eventually get the same "features" and it seems like genres are merging, even, that there is an expectation for them to merge. the end result is nowhere near as pathetic or completely, completely forgettable as NFT art, but it's a similar kind of form of collective collaboration that kind of sucks

Dear Reader,

Make no mistake– the MAGA movement remains popular across the country. Against the efforts of Big Tech and the leftist media, President Trump’s America First candidates went 22-0 in the Ohio and Indiana primaries -- but that's not the only red wave that MAGA patriots have been surfing….

That’s right– MAGA has taken over the crypto-verse, and we want YOU to join us!

The CryptoTRUMP Club, the recently-launched MAGA NFT Club, recently released 750 NEW one-of-a-kind Trump tokens… and we wanted to make sure you joined the movement that celebrates the unique, once-in-a-lifetime personality of President Trump.

BUY HERE
This isn't your basic NFT-- it's access to something even bigger.

CryptoTRUMP owners have exclusive access to a private discord channel where they can interact with MAGA world's biggest stars like DC Draino, Typical Liberal, Erin Elmore, BJ Baldwin and David Harris Jr.

While the dumpster fire that is CNN+ burns out and Twitter’s board of marxist tech oligarchs toy around with maybe allowing free speech, the CryptoTRUMP Club stands on principle.

CryptoTRUMPs can ONLY be found on DeepRedSky, the premium NFT marketplace powered by Parler, the premier global free speech platform.

Our first, limited-edition 250 token release is now sold out… but there’s still time to claim one of the 750 tokens from our second release.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to own a special and unique piece of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump.

this madonna x beeple garbage, at first i was like “lol, typical” and moved on with my life, but no, it sank its hooks into me. congratulation you turds, i’m engaged despite myself.

fuck this so much. a grift is a grift; fine, whatever, it’s [current year] so what else would you expect. but they’re dressing up this foul nonsense in perfectly unimpeachable charity clothes, and oh look here’s madonna’s avatar giving birth to a tree.

they give so huge a shit about these charities, auction off something real, sacrifice something of actual value, of any value whatsoever, not this gateway to/support of the crypto-scamosphere, which, hello again, madonna’s avatar giving birth to a tree, you’re gonna have to pump out a few billion more of those to offset the environmental wreckage caused by luring more marks onto the blockchain, goddamnit it’s so contradictory & incoherent it’s practically a koan, a singularity of assholish stupidity sucking in my brain and turning it into spaghetti, PLUS!

oh it’s a celebration of motherhood, so powerful and mystical — really? really???? right now, right at this exact time, “yay the power of giving birth” READ THE FUCKING ROOM AND ALSO GARGLE A BAG OF DICKS

reminds me of all the corporate "charity" ads that you see during any sports game. "if they hit a home run in the 6th inning, Hyundai will donate $1000 to the make a wish foundation!!!", knowing that over 162 games that will happen a very, very predictable amount of times, and that they could just fork over the money (and get their tax deduction, which no one i know makes enough money to be able to claim, which makes charity a project of the rich) ahead of time without having to demand that it be an advertisement for themselves which highlights how charitable they are, 162 different times every year

hi jeremy, i love you and i'm sorry you're dying of cancer. we could help make your dreams come true before you die, but there's gotta be a little something in it for me too, ok? so we need dylan carlson to hit a big fly here, ok? ooooooh...dylan wasn't able to do it today. dylan is very selfish"

somehow tying this back to madonna, beeple and nfts, i guess what i'm trying to say is that i'd muuuuuuuuch rather prefer that they just be straightforward that it's all about money, and that art is an afterthought. same with hyundai -- i get that you're a company that wants to make a bunch of money. "money: it's the thing you need to live! and it's the ONLY reason to live!" just make an ad like that, i'd respect them so much more
