The value of music and the art that surrounds it has been eroded in the streaming era and NFTs can bring it back. By creating these rare pieces of art—exclusive tracks, albums, physical products, publishing rights, sample-packs, or whatever they wish—artists can connect with and, importantly, monetize their loyal fans away from centralized digital music platforms.

'get your most loyal fans away from other centralized digital music platforms and instead exploit them here with our brand new centralized digital music platform'

 :cerious:

i paid a little attention to XLR8R, but they're obviously just fucks. that's the one plus to all this NFT shit, you really get to see who's only in the game because they want to exploit anyone and anything with no remorse or consideration, many of them doing some pathetic mental gymnastics to try and justify it.

The dumbest trend of 2020s (so far). I feel like I should just unfollow every label and artist who pushes this bullshit.

NFTs are so fundamentally offensive as a concept when I was reading some article giving a primer about what they are and how they work I just gave up and said "man, this is so fucking stupid." 

Let's give everyone basic housing options, UBI, and publicly fund libraries and web archives to store people's creations. Give me that over this final boss influencer, hyper artificial scarcity, late stage capitalism bullshit.

When we built this multi-family complex, we made a big mistake, we lost money. We gave them small gardens and windows, we installed water, lighting and heating systems — this was a wrong concept.  A man doesn't need a home, all he needs is a shelter.

If we can sell him on the idea of a shelter, we can make millions.

not sure what all to say here. i got into it with William Fields on Twitter a few days ago because he was discussing doing this.

I think he might have come round, this certainly doesn't sound like a positive throw towards it:

So, how long until all this bullshit collapses? 

maybe next month, maybe next year, maybe never. regulatory bodies don't seem to care, i'm assuming because their friends are in on it. most likely is there'll be some super shady shit come to light at some point, probably a few times of increasing severity, and then it'll come under some light regulation and it'll turn into a new stock market (it basically already is) with some illusion of normalcy but now cool because it's the interwebz tech.

looking at some of his works, i've always liked a bit of it but it's definitely got this sheen of the sorta thing we're going to look back on in 10 years and go 'haha that looks so 2015'

ha yeah. good if so, better he fall in the middle or on the non-Earth-destroying side of things imo. i've been unfollowing people left and right on Twitter over the last few weeks because of showing support for/trying to cash in on NFTs.... not that it means jack shit, but i just can't stand seeing it.

My mind just jumps right to the environmental impact, I don't give a shit about any of the rest of it - the whole idea is ludicrous. Anything that uses this much energy should not be growing in popularity like this.

using more energy than expected = big bonuses for certain people. anything that keeps the wheels turning, the money and power keeps flowing upward.

      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:
