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."  L

raise the minimum wage at an excruciatingly slow pace over the next few years? lol absolutely not that's too much. buying a pixel for like a billion dollars? hell yeah man, fucking Stonks dude. s

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

my first NFT is on sale below and based on an original cartoon drawing i did for WATMM's guess the celebrity thread

https://mintable.app/art/item/Danny-Trejo-Danny-Trejo-cartoon-drawing/rmYQCiKwFGqqp2y

this is an extremely rare piece and is part of a series of cartoon drawings done from 2019 to present. great opportunity to wet your feet into the NFT biz and join the exciting new world of digital art collecting.

also  looking into selling my junk mail as soon as i can figure out how to mint it, but interested parties can contact me with their bids

Kuennen, for his part, seemed a little nonplussed. “While I still don’t understand what has happened at least it is still somewhere,” he said via WhatsApp. “Yay.” 

He wondered whether there was any way he could restore the image without having to gaze into the blockchain itself. Probably not. Could he, at least, somehow restore the link to the image? But where was it even hosted? Was it even hosted? None of this seemed even remotely hopeful. The best bet, he figured, would be to just resell it as it is, and call it avant-garde.

this whole article was disgusting to read, as is basically anything relating to the realities of NFTs.

crazy. the guy essentially spent $500 so he could look at a jpeg in a section of a website that lets him think he owned it. the image disappears and he complains. the image returns and he says "yay."

when Mike Judge was writing Idiocracy, this is the type of thing he couldn't imagine but would have perfectly fit into the humor of the film.

what a pile of crap all of this cryptomining currency shit. Humans trying making value and speculate out of nonsense. Making the most douchebags millionaries. Maybe similar to trading in a way, but damn this is another level

this has literally nothing to do with cryptocurrency mining.  this is a random program written on the ethereum distributed computer.  your post is like saying "fuck this digital circuitry stuff, I don't need excel I've got fingers, this is a complete waste of time"

these NFTs are stupid but it has nothing to do with crypticurrencies it's just implemented on top of themn. maybe learn how computers work

Good news is Ethereum is gradually moving to proof of stake vs proof of work so people can complain about the wealthy instead of the environment.

It has everything to do with crypto, it’s what crypto really is in the real world and not in some fantasy platonic ideal state. crypto as a completely pure technology functionally without human or environmental consequences is not real.

how can it be that "NFT is what crypto is" if you can completely deleted NFT from everyone's memory and crypto still remains unchanged? youre fundamentally misunderstanding concepts of layers of abstraction in computation. there is NO code for NFT in ethereum.

Bc you cannot have crypto in a neutral condition. It’s not possible. I perfectly understand abstract concepts lol, but that’s just not the word we live in bruh

abstract concepts? im talking about computational layers of abstraction, its a very specific technical detail not "abstract concepts".  NFT is literally just a program written on Ethereum the same way Audacity is a program written for x86 CPUs.  If you don't like Audacity you don't go saying "Fuck Intel audacity is shit"

Physical metal > Circuitry > CPU Microcode > CPU user-space > computer system > operating system > application layer

The Ethereum VM is analogous in this case to the "CPU user-space"

NFT is in the "Application layer" section

Thus if you delete Ethereum VM then NFT disappears but if you delete NFT the Ethereum VM is unharmed because it didn't even know it existed.  NFT has thus nothing to do with Ethereum or cryptocurrency except that it's a use-case which couldn't exist before it.  It's dumb in these publicized uses of it, but so are most use-cases of any computers

“There was no history of my ever purchasing it, or ever owning it,” said one confused NFT buyer. “Now there’s nothing. My money’s gone.”

I've got some news for you there, champ...

i thought NFT were enabled because of blockchain technology? isn't  that the same thing that makes crypto currency possible? 

i'm probably confusing some of the finer points here but i thought NFT couldn't exist w/o crypto currency technology? 

as yet it's not relevant to me anyways.. just trying to keep track in case something something

I think you're right about that part. without crypto, no NFT's.

      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:
