I don’t understand NFT’s. Period. That is the whole post.
As I age, one of my constant fears is I am going to become an old man who just doesn’t understand the world around him because it has changed so much. I like to think I am pretty on top of things, up to date on world events, up to date (within reason) with pop culture, and up to date with science and technological advances. Sure, I don’t know everything, and yes, there are tons of musical acts and actors and actresses in shows I have never heard of, but I think that speaks more broadly to the fact that far more stuff is widely available because it isn’t just the three major networks and a handful of radio conglomerates choosing what is popular.
So I’m not too worried about it. Crypto and NFT’s, on the other hand, make no fucking sense to me. And I play video games and understand the tangible value of things that solely exist in cyberspace like how people will pay real cash money to buy ingame gold to buy items. And even then, I do not understand why someone would plunk down a half million to sell something that doesn’t exist.
