This is a hilarious thread:


And the video, taken down from YouTube, can still be seen here (below). It’s astounding that it’s apparently not satire:

I think this is useful advice for people of all ages.

Unfortunately the great punchline, that the quote tweet avatar has copied the NFT avatar, is cropped out in the post.

I have no idea what any of this means.  Like zero.

Love this.

This is excellent.  Absolutely love this.  Whenever I stumble across this thread I'll watch it a few times and get the same positive emotion each time when listening to such a great mindset.

Still don't understand the fascination with NFT's.  Give me the tangible product over a digital one every single time.

When we all live in the Metaverse, NFTs might be worth something. They’re just reasons to throw away money in the real world.

The only thing I've ever heard that makes sense to me is that it might eventually be a way for companies to monetize what a lot of people enjoy for free on the internet right now. So, like, if you could own a popular meme or what have you and have some sort of legal way to charge other people to use it. Obviously the technological or legal infrastructure might not be there yet to make that realistic now but I also don't underestimate capitalism's desire to affix a price tag to every aspect of the human experience.
I wish to hell I’d never said "Winning isn’t everything it’s the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you’ve won.

It’s a feature length movie in duration, so if you’re bored and curious about the history and impact and consequence of cryptocurrency and NFTs, here you go!
