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.
