I own an NFT of a frikandelbroodje. It’s on the blockchain and in my wallet. I know I know, it’s not nice to show off.
I mean, if people pay $40.000 minimum for cartoon avatars called CryptoPunks this doesn’t sound too crazy. Everything can be minted as an NFT. So I guess that’s what I’ll be doing.
If you don’t know what an NFT is you haven’t read my article: NFT’s: Digital Art on the Blockchain is Big Business.
You can admire my frikandelbroodje in its full glory down below:
If you are:
- Mesmerized by its artistic beauty
- Overwhelmed by the bold socio-economical statement it makes
- Feel melancholic for the coming-of-age story it represents
This means the artwork is for you and you should make a bid on the item.
An NFT is proof of status
The funny thing is, I’ve put it there myself. Still, it feels valuable. Every (semi-) famous artist is releasing an NFT. Trying to make money before the hype train stops. Some items will remain valuable. But most people will be left holding
an empty bag a bag with jpg’s of donuts and cartoons.
NFT’s are like status symbols for crypto enthusiasts. It’s like being verified on Twitter. It doesn’t mean anything in itself, but still, it signals you are probably somebody. It’s proof of status, you publicly show which valuable artworks you have.
Anyway, it’s a gold rush. In a gold rush, you sell shovels. But I’m feeling generous. I’ll give you a piece of gold for free.
Bonus: Free Golden Power NFT
I’ll give this Golden Power NFT away to someone who’s subscribed to my newsletter next week. Get in on the adventure of the goldrush and get my latest articles in your inbox.
If that’s not enough to convince you here’s my pitch.
The yearning for riches lured peasants to the depths of the earth. In inhumane conditions they searched for gold, struggling to breathe, their lungs filled with dust, inhaling toxic fumes of the explosives they used. Getting rich was no healthy endeavor.
But what if I tell you that the next goldrush is digital and that you can partake from your couch, wearing a snuggie. The time has come. You can get a piece of gold it’s called an NFT, I’m giving it away for free. The item has gold in its name (that should increase the value by at least 10x in crypto land).
