@TATTRAT personally I'm thinking there might be more money in How To Videos than in actually doing it. There's a lot more people willing to drop $20 cold hard cash than $3600 for an ETH coin.

I’m pretty sure NFT’s have a path to monetizing things in Meta. While in the Facebook virtual world, things will be bought and sold that are virtual only and not tangible in any way. You could buy an NFT of a photograph to decorate your virtual space and know that you have either the only one or a numbered (1/1000 say) edition. Other things will be NFT’s too like avatars or a virtual handbag. The possibilities are literally endless as to what can be an NFT and what it’s use could be and how it’s displayed.

Personally I just see it as the ultimate form of vanity but that’s the direction the world seems to be progressing towards.

That's a very valid point, even as some performance artists are already selling nft tickets to virtual events/shows that they will be doing in the metaverse in an attempt to build exclusivity. Virtual galleries with exclusive content, the list will go on and on. That I just won't get into, I much prefer a real world experience (like with most things).

My wife is a voracious reader downloading book after book on her tablet. I try to do the same and can barely get through a few pages before I have to quit, even though I love to read. Give me a real book, with real pages, and if it's good, I might devour it in one sitting.

We just back from a visit to Walt Disney, Orlando. I'm not sure some of the much touted rides that combine a fair amount of Virtual Reality are that much better. Now Disney just patented a Virtual World Simulator that will allow it to simulate augmented digital worlds for individualized multiple guests without the need for users to wear headsets or glasses. The thing about the virtual world is that our senses are designed for real world to work in conjunction with each other. Just like reading a real book, I see the words, but I also feel the page, smell the the paper/ink, sense it's size in relation to me world. Deprive someone of even one of the senses we take for granted and the brain notices, the virtual copy quickly becomes a novelty.

From a friend a link and quote:

"All this means that if your NFT is removed from OpenSea, it also disappears from your wallet. It doesn’t functionally matter that my NFT is indelibly on the blockchain somewhere, because the wallet (and increasingly everything else in the ecosystem) is just using the OpenSea API to display NFTs"

My first impressions of web3

From some of my own searching:

Opinion matches mine: "NFTs are a tired pump and dump scam wrapped in high tech clothing."

Plus some background on what they are and are not.

NFTs are unique crypto Tokens. “Non-fungible” more or less means that it’s unique and can’t be replaced with something else.

If I was famous, maybe I could sell a token that I created. The rights stay with the owner (me) it's my art, everything is still mine and the buyer can't do anything with that, except own a token. So people are paying for a NFT and could re-sell it, because it's a one of a kind token.

Whether this is a pump and dump or a bubble fad waiting to crash, I'm not joining, because I'm not someone who has anything that anyone else would pay for. Lets say I put up my most famous work of art. (that's hypothetical already) No one knows me or cares, it's not going to sell. Maybe it will?

Wouldn't companies like Facebook (Meta) purhase NFT's directly or more likely make up content for their own use? Why would they buy it second-hand from a buyer of an NFT?

I'm still not clear of the difference between an NFT or just having a picture available in let's say Flickr?

On the news Wal-Mart to sell NFT's Walmart is quietly preparing to enter the metaverse I guess they gave up trying to keep their shelves stocked. It's comforting to know that I'll soon be able to buy a digital gallon of milk........NOT.
The metaverse reminds me of that joke about the captain being tested to become an Admiral.

"So, Captain, what would you do if a storm suddenly appears from the Southwest?"
"Well, I'd throw out a storm anchor to the Southwest."

"And what would you do if another storm appears on the East?"
"Well, I'd throw a storm anchor to the east."

"What about if another one comes up from the North"
"Same thing. I'd throw out another storm anchor to the north."

"But captain,. Where are you getting all those storm anchors?"
"Well, says the Captain. The same damn place you're getting all those storms."
