    I was expecting to click away after a few minutes, but man that was a deeply satisfying rant. And he's right, it's a scam from top to bottom that a surprising number of people are falling for.

    One additional aspect he didn't touch on is that even if everything works on the technical side, anyone can just mint whatever NFT they want. His only examples were bringing over NFTs from "real" games, but I could spend a weekend in Unity or whatever the fuck and create my own weapon that does frankly game breaking amounts of damage and lets say it also makes me invisible and gives me infinite health. But because it's on the block chain, other developers have to respect it apparently.

    Or lets say that WoW allows items to be removed from games and get exported onto the blockchain. Sure, whatever. I can see what format those weapons are stored in and I can craft a special NFT with a malicious payload of code that used the NFT as vector to hack the game. And sure, some companies would create protections against that kind of attack, but it's gonna work on others and it would be an absolute nightmare scenario.
