Worse than that NFT of your mom pulling a blockchain.

Surgeon said attempted sale of image showing forearm containing a Kalashnikov bullet without patient consent was 'an error'

You think ?

Yep, he just tripped over the process that turns art into an NFT. I do it all the time.

"The picture shows a forearm containing a Kalashnikov bullet and was on sale for about $2,776"

Years of medical school down the drain for three grands.

As stupid as this is, I still find it amazing that there's an actual market for it. Who would want this and why?

This entire world has gone bsc.

I decided to stop at blockchain and not understand what NFT means. With the partial knowledge that I have, who owns the the rights to sell an NFT. Let's say this post gets a 1000 likes and becomes a legend. Can I sell the NFT or drew or someone else?

That's just wrong. As a doctor, he should have known that selling x-rays of crime victims without compensation is reserved for medical journals.

Another news outlet who has no idea what nft is. Nft Is not ownership of any thing. It is purchasing a position on a blockchain, a position that according to a website makes you associated with the image in question. You don't own it, you can't do anything with it, but if someone looks up your nft they will see that image.

That's it. That's all.

The market isn't for the image, except as much as the image generates the NFT.  The NFT are essentially a marketing scam to get people into cryptocurrency, since the NFTs piggyback off of a cryptocurrency's blockchain - Interacting witht eh NFT by definitions demands you buy into ScamCoin.  Remember those 2008 mortgage bonds, where they were bundling good and bad mortgages together and selling the resulting bond as if all the mortgages were super-top-tier, rather than a mix?  Now imagine that, but digital, with links to dodgy online images instead of mortgages, and the "ratings agencies" are incel neckbeard crypto-fetishists.

Ripping off internet art and turning it into an NFT without the consent of the creator is on brand for NFTs though.

Outrage and media attention. That will turn anything into a successful NFT sale. Sigh.

What in the actual fark is wrong with the doctor.

If the doctor is willing to exercise such horrible judgment in this area it makes me question judgment in every area, including medical judgment.

Like how would anyone think this is a good idea.

Yep, my late mother in law was told she had at least two articles written about her in medical journals. I half suspect she was kept alive to be a surgical guinea pig.

/She survived 400/200 blood pressure, simultaneous Cdiff and MRSA, and had more stints that arteries.

Nah. Even the trees were a mistake. Nobody should have left the ocean.

It's a surgeon. They are the the jocks of the medical field and very heavy with psychopaths.

NFTs are digital artworks that cannot be duplicated.

If you say so.

Opens NFT image, changes one pixel, sells it again

Why the f*ck does their name have two differently shaped A's? It's driving me insane.

Actually they will see a link to the image.
