Also, can’t wait for the galaxy-brain comments from crypto aficionados explaining how the banking sector is a scam, as if that was relevant here.

For the last time since you’re so thick headed I do not care whether or not someone of their own free will chooses to buy/not buy something but I am opposed to the labelling of any item as a scam/predatory that a person buys voluntarily it is not my/anyone’s duty to label the purchase of something that we don’t like as a scam and I was simply using banks as an example to point out the absurdity of this idea that something should be labelled a scam simply due to my personal dislike of such a thing

Im going to be honest here, I’m surprised it didn’t collapse by the end of last year.

Can’t read the article, it requires subscribing.

As of NFT’s in general, there is barely a difference between them and collectible unique sneakers drops or another overpriced consumer junk in terms of hype and utility. If you cannot accept NFT’s boom, probably capitalism is not for you ^_-

Well, this is also good and on the same topic, quoting the WSJ a lot: https://kotaku.com/nft-market-collapse-square-enix-ubisoft-sega-konami-sca-1848878945

NFTs are a cool technology, but make no sense commercially. I’m suprised the hype took this long.
