It only gets worse, now that's I've taken the time to get into Molly's thread. You'd think it would be hard to find a worst part but holy shit.

I really hope this "project" is purely for assholes scamming assholes because if Max and Elena truly have dedicated their lives to this will true hearts, it's a damning indictment of the concept of passion.

Part of me wouldn't put it past these two to take 'em for all their brocoins then dump 'em off to either make like Gilligan's Island or die.

I once read that the jpeg monkeys being tacky is part of the con - just like typos in spam Nigerian Prince letters. People who don't have the critical skill to suspect a dozen typos in a letter, or how dumb a bunch of serialized monkey jpgs are, will also lack the critical skills to tell the signs of a con. Is like natural selection, but inverse, and only the dumbest will survive the cull to become marks.

This crypto island video reeks of that, honestly.

The video about cryptoland/nftopia/jones2n/galt's regret/littler st james has gone private. I never got a chance to watch it!!!!

Well, if they’re fleecing rubes in order to give the money to charity, I’d view it as a net postive.

Yeah, honestly this is about the same as donating a bunch of money to NPR and getting a tote bag. It's unnecessary fluff but probably one of the least objectionable uses of NFTs I've seen so far. If dabbling in buzzwords gets a few more people to donate to a good cause, sure, go for it.

I think the environmental impact of the NFTs themselves still makes this more harmful than an NPR tote, though.

There is that. I think there are some blockchains out there that don't use the same egregiously energy-intensive "proof of work" system as the big foo-coins, which might not end up being any worse than manufacturing physical tchotchkes, but you'd have to be careful about it (which most places latching onto the buzz-words probably aren't gonna bother being).

So the receipt is stored in the blockchain, but not the item itself? If that URL went down, the receipt would no longer prove anything?

You know, I forgot about the musical number in that video. Wouldn't surprise me if they took it down to head off risk of legal action for using copyrighted music. Really amazed that there is no moment of this video secure enough to not try to make an inside joke.

I think the best part is all the references to crypto stuff that absolutely 100% failed, that's definitely stuff you want your rube investors thinking about when it comes time to buy a libertarian financier's paradise that will have actual plumbing this time we promise

Troy Baker is now trying to NFT "character voices" so you can own a character's voice.

Because that's definitely how NFTs actually work.
