If you can just steal these things, aren't they FTs?

Why are all these people complaining about the new owners of what used to be their ledger entry

And it's pronounced funjible, as in The hamster is fun too, but the fungible we have will make the rodent party.
Not fungible as in, I have a toe fungibles from walking around the pool and must use a special medication.

These people are idiots and deserve what they get. JFC, it's the 2020's version of Tulip mania.

Yeah, but at least with the tulip mania you at least got a pretty flower you could own. Now all you get is an ugly drawing of a monkey that anybody can right-click, save.

Headline suggests the NFTs had value to begin with.

I still don't get NFTs and why people pay money for them.

Those savvy investors who buy NFTs might fall for a phishing attack? The hell you say.

Wait. I have no clue what you're getting at with your second sentence, and the first sentence is a real reach.

Are you the subby of the m-w word of the day headlines?

Just think of a scam, wrapped around another scam, wrapped around another scam.... all the way down.

Don't you want to drive a Lambo on the moon? Cryptocurrency is free money that you buy with your worthless fiat.

They're like goddamn redneck comedy tour bits that foxworthy did 25 years ago. Ugh.

Two million stolen out of a 13.3 billion market. Not a problem.

Half of the articles I see about NFTs are about them being stolen.

I do make NFTs in my spare time.
I should turn this tweet into one.

If you're selling worthless things for thousands or millions, does your conscience never tell you that you shouldn't engage in scams?

If he wants to fleece morons, I say more power to him. I thought about selling NFTs once. I had some cool abstract photos around which I thought I could create a clever marketing hook. I got as far as signing up for OpenSea but then when it got to the point of putting them up for sale, you had to pay a "gas" fee which was like $120. LOL, no. I wasn't particularly interested in getting scammed myself before I could start scamming other people. Everything about crypto is stupid.

I see it as a giant flea market. A bunch of people selling worthless shiat to people who know how money works, but choose to spend it this way.
Plus, I actually like the art I make. Also, the market in which I engage charges a stupidly low gas fee, so it is all basically an inexpensive amusing hobby for me.
