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

I've been trying all week to rationalize to myself the fact that I might actually try to get on this before the bubble bursts.

 

The most so far is "it's unethical to NOT grift crypto-bros."

i don't understand this. today's brain fog makes it hard to track but it all seems imaginary but perhaps that's a failing of my imagination. 

edit: oh. ok. reuters helped. wtf.

HERE IS THE ARTICLE YOU CAN SEND TO PEOPLE WHEN THEY SAY “BUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES WITH CRYPTOART WILL BE SOLVED SOON, RIGHT?”

Quote

Digital artists have media that can proliferate over a network and be held by many people at once without cheapening or breaking the aura of a first-hand experience. It is the one true benefit to working in digital space.

I’m horrified to see this willingly traded for an opportunity to reproduce the worst parts of the existing physical art market, where “the original” is useful foremost as a rare thing- a unique thing- that, in its scarcity, is an asset.

Quote

I doubt it will be very long before there is a “more ethical” NFT marketplace, one that has taken these steps to ensure a slower, more considered NFT minting and selling model.

But cryptocurrency and cryptoart are not bad for the environment accidentally- they are not bolted onto this blundering machine and cannot just be taken off (the technology of a proof of work-based system almost guarantees this). Fundamentally, cryptocurrency AND cryptoart are valuable because they burn energy. Because they turn sunk energy cost into futures.

If that is the value system we are building, we are doomed.

grimes just made $6 million from an album released as an NFT

https://niftygateway.com/collections/warnymphvolume1open

also. related to the article linked by@auxien

"A percentage of proceeds from the sales will be donated to environmental NGO Carbon 180, presumably in an attempt to offset the electricity and carbon dioxide consumed by using blockchain technology. As climate activist Joanie Lemercier previously estimated, however, a prior auction for just two pieces of art on Nifty Gateway burned the equivalent of 49 years of electricity consumption and 103,129 Kg of CO2 emissions."

don't even know where to begin on this fucking multilayered meta shit+irony sandwich.

Quote

“The reason behind this is because if we had the NFT and the physical piece, the value would be primarily in the physical piece. By removing the physical piece from existence and only having the NFT, it makes sure the NFT due to the smart contract on the blockchain will ensure that no one can alter the piece, and it is the true piece that exists in the world.”

The Burnt Banksy representative added:

"By doing this the value of the physical piece will be moved onto the NFT and being the only way you can have this piece anymore. The goal here is to inspire, we want to inspire technology enthusiasts and we want to inspire artists. We want to explore a new medium of artistic expression."

"I see what going on, and it’s just exploding. I wanted my fans that are living in the digital world to be able to get a piece of this action." Rob Gronkowski

Quote

Gronkowski’s NFTs will be available on the Ethereum blockchain, where Dapper started its CryptoKitties game. The collectibles are four moments, 87 editions each, from Gronkowski’s appearances in Super Bowl XLIX, Super Bowl LI, Super Bowl LIII and February’s Super Bowl LV. Along with the 348 NFTs, one “refractor card” will be auctioned, too. The owner of this NFT will receive a meet and greet with Gronkowski at an NFL game next season.

      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:
