‘Going Under’ Dev Says It Won’t Work With Team17 Again Following NFT Announcement – Nintendo Life
@MysticX I mean, I’m also all against NFT’s and agree that they are a pyramid scheme, but at least the “value” arguement doesn’t quite work in my understanding. After all, if we see actual money for just what it is – paper, or little coins made of cheap metal – then they aren’t worth particulary much either. (especially if it is, in some cases, just the number on our digital bank account, with no physical money neccessarily attached to it).
I personally don’t think cryptocurrency would be so bad, if there was no environmental impact. And some ppl claim there are already technologies that reduce that impact to a non-bearable degree. Idk if that’s true.
NFT’s however are just dumb. As a “currency”(/ investment), they’re not required when the regular cryptocurrency is already a thing. As a certificate of ownership, they currently don’t make any sense as you don’t actually own anything other than a recipe. It doesn’t give you any rights to your “”property”” that anyone cares about.
All it is is a pyramid scheme, and/or people wanting to make you pay for what you really have no reason paying for. (some of ’em legit wanna make NFT’s for colours, promising that you would “get a share of money whenever someone commercially uses that color”, which, obviously, doesn’t work like that)
@fafonio Every time I see your type, you’re too afraid to explicitly show your full support for NFTs, and yet for some asinine reason, you can never actually personally inform people yourself on why something ISN’T bad.
It’s always the same: “Do some research”, because let me tell you; far more people against NFTs have far more knowledge about them than those who continue to defend them.
If you want to refute points, it’s YOUR job to refute them with YOUR findings.
Now… it is a FACT that NFTs use up a lot of electricity. “Environmentally friendly” NFTs still use up electricity, even if it’s “less”. Producing oil barrels that plant 1 tree in the environment still damages the environment.
It is also a fact that nothing NFTs have done so far is actually unique to NFTs. For starters, there is legitimately nothing “unique” about a digital asset. It can be replicated with no drop in quality or inherent value. The “blockchain” has literally been proven by the CREATOR of NFTs themselves, to just be storing an image into nothing better than a URL.
Now, can one of you NFT defense squads please actually for ONCE come up with something better than “Uhhh, you’re wrong because I’m not gonna tell you why, do it yourself…” ?
