You 👉👦🏿 think 💭 it's funny 😃 to take 💅 screenshots ❌😤🚫 of people's 👫👬 NFTs, huh 😕? Property 🏡 theft 🕵 is a joke 😂 to you 👈? I'll 🤫 have you 👈 know 💭 that the blockchain 💖 doesn't lie 😫💪😤. I 👁 own it. Even 🌃 if you 👈🏼 save 📑 it, it's my property 🎮🚣🏻⛽. You 👉 are mad 😡 that you 👈 don't 🚫 own the art 🖼 that I 👁 own. Delete ❌ that screenshot 😎👍.
Everyone says this but I’ve yet to see a real explanation
Take lots of cash made illegally. Convert it to crypto that is untraceable. Spend crypto buying and selling online artwork that is also untraceable. Convert crypto to cash with no paper trail. Profit.
So basically you're back to square one, with a lot of dirty cash and no way to explain it
It's not dirty if you have a paper trail just saying that it was converted from crypto. That's just where the trail ends
In addition to that, this process has been used for decades with the wealthy purchasing fine art at ridiculous prices. This isn't a new concept it's just now being applied to different currencies.
Thanks! Now explain the monkey laundering
Monkkey + washing machine =monkey laundering
Put a pair of "K"s in the dryer, and only one comes back out.
Wrote an entire copypasta about laundering monkeys but the ass spam filter on this sub removed it 🤔
maybe you could post it to the copypasta sub
The money is now *"clean"* because it was from *someone* buying your *art* with money, from which there is no source, but for which you aren't required to have a source.
No you make the money from selling nfts, you buy it with the stolen money/crypto. Then when asked where you got the money you say from selling nfts
Also crypto is traceable. Crypto is being used less to wash money than cash.
Yah, it's more about converting cash into sellable assets than laundering
Most crypto are traceable these days. Bitcoin used to be touted as "untraceable" but that's not a reality any more. I'm sure there's a few but monero is the only one I know of.
That's fine, because money laundering just means getting rid of the cash. In this case, converting it to something with a monetary value like crypto or an nft. It is no longer cash that can be counted but rather an asset
Isn’t a blockchain literally the opposite of untraceable? Like it’s concept is that everything is traced forever? The moment someone exchanges the money, the trace even has a real identity linked to it.
How is it 'untraceable' when it's literally on a public ledger.
There is a complete paper trail. For instance you can look at the guy who owns the alex.eth address and see exactly what tokens he owns and what he's exchanged them for.
Crypto is pseudonymous, not anonymous.
Dimond hands pfp 🤮
If you know the theory on how money laundering works then you would instantly know why that would be applicable here yes
To conceal the source of money by channeling it through and intermediary... hmm
Thanks for the explanation and ur helpful comment
Damn what an incredibly knowledgeable comment, by the way as a neurosurgeon, noble price winner in economics, i'd argue that you're wrong and if you knew the theory you'd now.
Calling them "artists" is giving them too much credit
NFT “artists” are dumb, imagine making money just by drawing a monkey with diferentes colors 🗿🗿🗿
I think you mean NFT buyers. The “Artist” is making a shit ton of money from dumbasses. It’s the perfect job
It's not stupid if it works
Ik, I’m saying that it’s the buyers who are stupid. The sellers are smart
The buyers, sells them tho. Almost nobody really keeps them because of "art" or something, people generally buy them to sell them later because they have rare variants to make money. It’s not always money laundering, it’s just investment.
I meant the artist
You’re saying artist is smart and buyer is dumb, or did I get it wrong ?
That is what I’m saying
It's almost temping to try myself
What are the costs?
GODDAMMIT LOCH NESS MONSTER
No, it's still stupid. It just also works on stupid people
And there's nothing unethical about profiting off of people's willing stupidity, so long as no deception is involved.
It feels unethical to agree but I agree
Value is subjective, if they think it's valuable who are we to not take advantage of that
Yes it fucking is?
Sounds like the dream job tbh
Draw 5 colours, 5 mouths, 5 eyes, you just made 125 nfts.
to be fair, they're extremely smart. They saw a low effort way to rake in a ton of money and chose to exploit it
What if you put the word “con” before artists? More accurate?
My mom called me a artist after I drew a stickman
NFTs lookin like picrew ocs
They are actually really well drawn, though with hundreds of different versions of the same thing colors and composition will become bad. The lineworl, expressions and creativity to create hundreds of characters from the same template is quite impressive imo
But yeah they aren't worth a couple thousand or hundred or even €20
Why is NFT art so damn shitty?
Because scammers are faster than artists
Some are good, most of them aren't
My question: what's nft art?
How dare you
you showed the nft without paying 69420 PenisCoin for it 😤
I apologize I can pay in dogecoin (funny!!!)
We only accept PenisCoin here.
Would you take 89 pegging bucks?
How the government allows this crap to happen is beyond me.
The concept of legal tender is completely out the window.
The government can't do anything about P2P tech.
Half of all dollars were printed into existence since 2009. People trust code they can audit much more than they trust governments who steal wealth through inflation.
Profile pictures that people pay for that all look the same and the owner gets angry when you screenshot them

Thanks, I hate it
That was a real tweet by an NFT owner it's amazing.
have a link to it?
I never understood the concept of NFTs, but this seems to explain it nicely. This was always my question when someone said only one person can have the image at a time: what's to protect their drawings from being screenshot? It always seemed dumb.
There’s nothing stopping them from snagging a screenshot. In theory, nfts could be worth something and usable for creative art collaborations and be actually functional, but that will probably be unrecognizable to how nfts work now.
It’s not the image. The image is just a visual representation of the block chain number or certificate. I think that’s the rarity part.
It's like bitcoin, but worse.
Do you know who else is like Bitcoin, but worse?
You're saying it wrong!
Moon or something, idk I’m not stupid
Also they use alot of energy, causing destruction to the environment
server cooling takes alot of coolant(basically water). Also, the amount of electricity used to run the nft servers is a shitton, causing more coal generators to run=more pollution
Holy shit not only are they shitty but an actual threat?
It’s the same for any cryptocurrency
Not the same for all crypto but yeah some of them are problems
I have a legit question, I'm not trying to be snarky.
Which crypto is environmentally sound? It seems like the calculational nature of farming crypto will always be an issue, and if you can't do that, then how is the crypto produced? Thanks in advance.
Peercoin, and all the proof of stake coins that followed. Peercoin invented a green protocol a few years after Bitcoin and has been around for 9 years. It functions just fine on a small fraction of the power consumption and hard drive space.
read up on [this](https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/13/climate/nft-climate-change.html) my guy. it's fucked that our climate's fragile state is degrading more because of ugly-ass art.
As a whole they're not as much as like cars or anything, but when you see what it's doing it's kind of like "is this really worth it?"
Not really, we got renewable energy these days.
It's a problem that is already being solved with ETH 2 coming out next year + layer 2 solutions on top of that. It's a non-issue. People like to spout that NFTs are bad for the environment, which is currently true, but we are not in the end stage of crypto and blockchain technology, far far from it.
because it's based on shitty blockchain tech
Rare Pepes but for real
I've seen the acronym nft before but I have no idea what the hell it means.
It stands for Non-Fungible Token, and it's basically a picture that you pay an absurd amount of money in crypto currency for and there's technically only one of each on the Blockchain. This entire idea is pointless thanks to the screenshot button, and it makes NFT artists salty
It's not just for pictures. An actual good use for it would be in-game items and stuff like that.
An actual practical use would be verifying concert tickets, passports, lottery tickets etc. There really are a lot of real world uses, despite what you hear.
You know another way to verify concert tickets,passports, etc ? By just looking at and/or scanning the barcode lol. That's a terrible real world use
Well blockchain would be the ledger system that verifys the concert tickets/passport after you scan the barcode. It literally is the intended real world use. You should look into it, cool stuff.
Non Fungible Token
This is actually pretty funny, op far from a shitpost.
Shitpots can be funny. Maybe thus sub isn't the best example of that, but "shitpost" and "funny" are not mutually exclusive concepts.
So i can draw a monkey and sell it somewhere and easy money then?
lol nah you have to also mint it and then keep buying it yourself until some else suspects it has value and buys it
NFT artist are the modern day equivalent of "My Sonic OC RazonDarkWing the Third. DO NOT STEAL"
atleast they weren't laundering money with sonic oc back in the day
They even more creative and better look than those monkey and lion
Or were they?
A good backup gun
NFT simps when the trend dies and they realize they spent their entire life savings on a monkey JPEG
At this point they should just draw the same drawing but just change one pixels color
Some have already done this
She cop is ok but I much prefer using surfer with gun
I download the NFT image and nobody can stop me
Reported to the authorities
The funny part is the pictures in this video probably had more effort to draw and look better than nft “””art”””

K but what does NFT means?
I don't know what it stands for but it's essentially a PNG people pay for
It means Non-Fungible Token. Basically what if cryptocurrencies but pokemon cards. It also doesn't just apply to PNGs, any item of your everyday life can be represented through a NFT, so you can now sell your used toothbrush when you no longer need it. That's the future bro. 😎
No fucking thanks
Can someone tell me which episode of regular show this is?
It's one of the ones that were on Cartoon Network
It's in Season 2 and it's called "But I have a Receipt"
Can someone explain what's with those monkeys? I don't get it
Money laundering, people make it look like the apes are worth a lot, only get some gullible person to buy it
I don't understand. If someone screenshot the "art", who will be mad? The artist or the buyer?
The Buyer usually,
"You think it’s funny to take screenshots of people’s NFTs, huh? You must be a very immature person to steal someone’s property that they PAID for. Yeah, I said it. You’re the kind of person who thinks that property theft (a seriously illegal offence) is a joke. I don’t even know why you took that screenshot, because you didn’t pay 1000 dollars for it. I did. The blockchain doesn’t lie. Even if you try to save it, it’s my property. You’re just angry that you couldn’t afford this priceless masterpiece. Even if you could, your fingers couldn’t even click fast enough to get one of the 10000 NFTs sold. You’re just mad you don’t own what I own.
So, delete that screenshot, or I swear, you’ll be hearing from my lawyers."
Nobody. That copyasta is fake. Nobody has ever gotten upset over a screenshot of an NFT lol
I don't understand NFT and bitcoins, i can't get my head around them.
Who vouch for them, how they got value?
And does NFT means my avatar is valuable?
No, it means you paid for a proof of ownership, which in turn does not make you the owner, you just get to keep a decent copy of it and you can tell others it's yours.
See, this doesn't make any sense, i can just screenshot it, who's going to stop me.
Nobody. But also nobody is going to buy a screenshot from you when they can verify what the real thing is.
But who sets the price?
How can you justify something and say this picture on the computer costs idk 100k?
I miss regular show 😔
haha screenshots go brr
> “Surfer with Gun”, from the “Pixie Sorcerer” collection, has been sold for $10,000!!
*screenshots 900,000,000,000 times*
Holy shit i want to fuck you more
Finally going to give in and ask, whats nft, there are so many memes and I don't quite know what that is....
