NFTs for music / auction music to the highest bidder via crypto tech

Some days I think everything is just a pump-and-dump scheme. And not just the stock market, crypto, NFTs, etc (as demonstrated by the inordinate influence a single Tweet can have on all of their price/value), but possibly everything in the world with an economic component, if you widen the definition of 'cashing out'...

very cool stuff

wait til you see this

i checked out this Really Cool Desktop Background website here: https://wallpapercave.com/really-cool-desktop-backgrounds

and they are all so really cool! i wish they only were not just really cool backgrounds but instead they were NFTs that i could pay for.

honestly each and every one, even the Hulk background, is totally very cool and easily worth a doctor's yearly income at the very least. i am glad that i have this kind of very real money that i could in theory offer to pay for each and every one of these very cool backgrounds and own the image perpetually, for eternity! that would be such a good feeling, dropping a hundred thou or so on an that cat face made of flames, and every time i opened my laptop seeing it staring back at me, would be worth every penny.

but unfortunately these are just free backgrounds that are not for sale 😢 i do not know how to express my pleasure in this case, i equate large sums of very real money with exclusivity and status, which these Really Cool Desktop Backgrounds would all grant me if only i could purchase them. but alas this is not the case.

i honestly do not understand how the internet perpetuated itself to this day and time so far past its birth without enabling paying creators of such awesome images in large sums of Very Real Money. we should all be so thankful that now we can express ourselves and support them in the ways that non fungible tokens have allowed us. this is truly the future.

NTFs.

Or how with enough hype, wealth flex and money involved, you can scam people out of a GIF.

I still find this absolutely unbelievable to witness, GIFs selling for thousands of dollars. It's beyond comprehension.

1 - Why do this?

Art.

2 - Can you tell me a little about yourself?

Hey, I'm Geoff. After many previous adventures involving cycling through many countries on a unicycle [0] I now live a minimalist lifestyle in a van [1] that is slowly working its' way around Australia. In a previous life, with friends, we had a small business running computer gaming LAN's and we ran the first eSport competition in Australia. Somewhere inbetween that I ran one of the first ever video [2] blogs.

I respectfully ask that you don't quote me as “$company person Geoffrey Huntley said” – if I speak for a company, I will publish on its channels.

3 - What's the server situation?

For authenticity I was going to host at PRQ but unfortunately they don't offer servers with enough disk space. The seedbox hosting the torrent has 4 x 10TB Sata drives configured in RAID0 and the website is humming along just fine even though the website is going insanely viral.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PRQ

4 - Do you see this as more of an art piece? What do you see as the role of art in society?

It's an educational art project. Back in the 1990s in Australia there was a politican that was gaining popularity and their viewpoints are (still to this day) quite harmful to the LGBTQ community. In response one of the members of the community responded by creating art which was successful in changing the course of Australian politics:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4tZRZSGxcE…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8XpDQp0Yfc0…

Earlier this morning I was hanging out in a Twitter space for NFT's and the host was:

  • "we wanna launch this project"
  • "once launched we gonna get the merch store out"
  • "merch gets more people interested in the NFTs"
  • "more people buy the NFTs and you'll get rich"

Fundamentally, I hope through http://thenftbay.org people learn to understand what people are buying when purchasing NFT art right now is nothing more then directions on how to access or download a image. The image is not stored on the blockchain and the majority of images I've seen are hosted on web2.0 storage which is likely to end up as 404 meaning the NFT has even less value.

5 - What's your general take on NFTs?

The utility (and value) of NFT's will be created through social media platforms. For many digital representations is > physical representation and (if/when) Twitter/TikTok (discord backed away from it) roll out the ability to display flair on a social media profile that will be a turning point. We see how bananas people go over the Twitter blue verified checkmark - now think how social media will change when people have the ability to display verifiable proof of membership (early investor of Uber, Forbes 30 under 30) vs adding the words to a social media bio. All of this however could be achieved without blockchain.

What people dream to build with "web3" is quite amazing. The underlying technology not so much and the greed/scamming going on is sickening. The dreams for a different future remind me of the internet in the 1990s. What's fascinating here is the communities are very strong and can self-fund the discovery phase. Where it goes pear shape is when (see above example from twitter space) "we gotta get new blood in to pump/dump"

Quentin Tarantino is breaking into NFTs.

Announced Tuesday, the award-winning director and writer is auctioning off seven uncut scenes from “Pulp Fiction” as nonfungible tokens, also including original handwritten scripts from the film and exclusive audio commentary from Tarantino himself. The collectibles will be auctioned on NFT marketplace OpenSea.

Tarantino is scheduled to comment on the “Pulp Fiction” nonfungible tokens during a panel alongside crypto investor Mike Novogratz, founder and CEO of Galaxy Digital, and others, at the NFT NYC conference Tuesday afternoon.

“The Billion Dollar Torrent,” as it’s called, reportedly includes all the NFTs on the Ethereum and Solana blockchains. These files are bundled in a massive torrent that points to roughly 15 terabytes of data. Unpacked, this adds up to almost 20 terabytes.

      so in the wake of the financial crisis, it seems nobody can trust bankers, financial institutions or governments who might actively inflate or deflate their own currencies for whatever reason. hearing of this, some japanese nerd called satoshi nakamoto set about designing an open source and completely anonymous peer-to-peer digital currency called 'bitcoin'.
       
      it's clearly still in its infancy and right now appears to just be an experimental economy of around 10,000 geeks trading bitcoin between each other for no real reason, but as the internet becomes more pervasive i don't see any reason why this can't become as big as paypal or even bigger. since i only have a rudimentary understanding of economics its difficult for me to tell you what the actual benefits of this would be were it to grow, but i know for a fact there's people on this forum (Bread probably) who would jizz over this.
       
      what interests me will be (if bitcoin takes off) if we will see the development of other digital financial instruments, loans, credit default swaps etc
       
       
      in summary: hurray for ingenuity and tenacity of nerds.

      It is now very important that all internet-using people know how to communicate securely, even over insecure channels like gmail, and with no fear of being spyed upon by e.g. the NSA. Fortunately there is a way to do this. It is called PGP.
       
      This thread is a brief explanation of PGP and how to use it, with an interactive component. Your challenge is to send me an encrypted message!
       
      HOW PUBLIC KEY CRYPTO WORKS (VAGUELY)
       
      Everyone makes their own public key and private key. You keep the private key to yourself, but advertise the public key widely (website, email signature, etc.), so that anyone who wants to message you securely uses your public key. The encrypted message can only be read by the person with the associated private key, namely, yourself.
       
      Remarkably, this allows you to communicate securely with complete strangers who you've never met before, without exchanging a secret key.
       
      HOW TO DO IT (in 5 minutes)
       
      1. First, download the software. By googling "PGP client" you can find an assortment; I prefer gpg4win for Windows. Macs might try GPGtools. My tutorial will focus on gpg4win, but the steps will be similar for other clients. Worst case scenario, you have to read someone else's tutorial.
       
      2. Open Kleopatra.
       
      3. File, New Certificate, create an OpenPGP key pair.
       
      4. Enter your details, and in Advanced Settings chooseRSA 4096 bit (for maximal security).
       
      5. Create the key. Make sure to use a long (>16) password which is generated randomly using special characters. random.org has a generator you can use, but I recommend KeePass as a generator and a way to store your passwords (so no memorization needed).
       
      6. Now, from my experience you may want to close and restart Kleopatra at this point, because usually it doesn't immediately list your new key. You want to see, in the main interface, the key with your name, email, etc.
       
      What to post here (to complete the challenge)
       
      1. First, you want to right click the key you've created, and click "Export Certificate". This makes an .asc text file (which may be opened e.g. with WordPad) containing your public key. It will look like the block of text at the bottom of this post. This is the public key; other people need to see it in order to communicate to you securely. Now, post your public key in this thread (as I've done).
       
      2. Second, you need to practice by sending me a message. To do that, copy/paste my public key (which is below) into a blank text document, and save it as a .asc file. Then, in Kleopatra, go to Import Certificates, and select that file. Once my key is imported, you may send me an encrypted message. First, type the message you want into a .asc file. Then in Kleopatra, go to file, sign/encrypt files. Choose the file, choose encrypt and select "Text output (ASCII armor)", next, select my name as who you want to encrypt to. Voila! Kleopatra will make a file which contained the encrypted message. Place the encrypted message
       
      3. If you did everything correctly, I am the only person in the world who can read your message (with the private key corresponding to my public key). When I read the message, I will write a response and send an encrypted message back using your posted public key. To read it, you will go to File, Decrypt/verify files, and the rest should be obvious by now.
       
       
      --------------------------------
      I'm anxiously awaiting your responses! Please tell me if anything is unclear in the above, or if you have any questions.
       
      Here is my public key:
