I just hope the "rich-and-famous-for-being-rich-and-famous-pretending-to-be-just-like-everybody" are not going to ruin it for us, little clickbaityNFT holders. Sadly it is always the case.

Cough... Elon Musk... cough... dogecoin... cough

That, and centralized platforms claiming to be decentralized.

The little guy always gets screwed. That's why we have Bitcoin.

Snowden sells his cryptoportrait as NFT for $5.5M. The money will go to the Freedom of Press foundation.

This sort of use of NFT actually starts to make a tiny bit of sense. The thing itself isn't the point; it can be a token for having contributed to a larger purpose at a particular moment. Better than another damned tote bag! :-)

(This is not an endorsement of Snowden or FPF.)

Hey, I'm a Boomer but tech-savvy. I was one of the early adopters of music NFTs, offering my master recording as a clickable link in the MP3 NFT. As Rarible had just added the Music category, my first NFT had a broken MP3, plus they exposed the linked file to the public, so I had to burn that token. ETH gas fees were crazy, too, and I took a hit but decided to try minting one more time. That MP3 NFT worked as did the linked file that would only display to the purchaser. Then I had to wait over a month to be Verified and also have them move the NFT into their Music category, as the default was Art, which made no sense. I did my social media blitz and thought, oh well, that was a fun exercise in futility... until I got an email after midnight today saying that it had sold. Good lord, Holmes! Holy sh@t, Watson! I've always been a believer in Ethereum since its debut due to the ability to execute smart contracts. NFTs are a great use case. ETH is going to become the Internet of decentralized finance, in addition to doubling as a store of value. But I digress. Color me an NFT believer. I made more money on the sale of a single song than all my Apple Music, CD Baby, Spotify, Amazon MP3, etc. ever has. Still sort of in shock but hey I'll take the win. Go ETH, go NFT.

And note that one gets 10% of all subsequent sales, each and every time it's resold. You can set that percentage higher when you create it. It's really a beautiful system of immutable record-keeping, i.e. who created it, who bought it/sold it, who bought it from them, etc., over the entire life. What a terrific system for artists of all kinds. :puf_smile:

The white paper behind bitcoin was most likely invented by anonymous boomers, not so with the minds behind Ethereum's invention.
No one can be expelled from the Embracing Everyone & Crypto Convention :puf_smile:

Real-life 'Disaster Girl' turns her meme into a $500,000 NFT
The image that sparked a thousand memes is the latest to make it big as an NFT.

The “Disaster Girl” photo that sparked a thousand memes is the latest to make it big all over again as an NFT. Zoe Roth, a 21-year-old college student and face of the viral “Disaster Girl,” sold an NFT of the meme for roughly $500,000 worth of Ether, The New York Times reported. The auction took place earlier this month, on auction site Foundation. Roth plans to use the funds to pay for school and make donations to charity, she told The Times.

The now iconic image dates back to 2005, when her father, David Roth, snapped the photo in their neighborhood while watching local firefighters at a controlled burn. Eventually, he entered it into a contest (he won), and the photo was quickly picked up by internet forums, according to Know Your Meme.

It’s not the first time an old meme has found a new life as an NFT or non-fungible token. The artist behind Nyan Cat sold an NFT based on the viral 2011 clip for $605,000 earlier this year. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also recently sold his first tweet as an NFT for nearly $3 million.
