Anna doesn't get the whole $6. As a merchant, the bank takes their cut of the transaction from her. Pay with cash. She gets it all. Better still; the rest of the world doesn't need to know all your biznezz.

So if etherum is using up the same amount of energy as a country, does that mean cryptocurrency is environmentally dangerous? And will continue to cause more problems?

As individuals on a smaller scale NFTS are changing artists lives, I think a lot of focus is spent on the big money and not enough on the smaller guy/girl winning by selling their art online

First off, thank you for another one of your great videos. I don't know if you're aware of it, but my country (El Salvador) is about to adopt Bitcoin as legal currency and the first country in the world to do so. I'm not a luddite but there's a lot about this, including the legal aspects which haven't really been made completely transparent to the population, that are making a lot of us quite anxious. Curiously enough, after my own very basic research, I've come to the conclusion (or hope) that it'll be a hype but only among tourists, and so it might actually be good and not wreak havoc like a lot of people are expecting it to. I guess I'll have to continue informing myself about this topic, but your video calmed me down to some extent because as with your other videos, it makes me feel like I will be able to understand all of it at some point and make better-informed decisions/actions. (Wouldn't hurt if at some point you decide to do research and a video about how this went🥺). Thanks again and greetings from a fellow hipster millenial🖖🏻

NOT for weaklings: It is not just hype. Art is not hype. So, let's just understand why anything and everything we encounter in this universe is art. Starting from the first human or cat face you see in the morning, from the mirrored image of yourself, from the tennis ball coming towards you, to the universe having occasional big bangs. EVERYTHING IS ART. But why do we value something more than other? It is about which direction we want to head. The person living in the woods, wants to see the concrete, and vice versa. We take one particular direction in order to go faster in that direction and see new things. Art from a certain painter whose face you like, sets you in his/her direction faster. A direction you feel that the painter has already seen and been to, and is very comfortable there and enjoying his/her time there. A little explanation: Topic: "A piece of paper, with the help of some colors, becomes very valuable. " Step 1: Paper Step 2: Artist looks at the paper; Meaning: All that music/noise that is banging in the room made of his body and soul, is coming out of the window made of his eyes and face. Step 3: Artist makes an effort to let it out using colors; Meaning: Uses the Equipments from the same room made of his hands and creates a resonance of all the noise that is coming out. Step 4: Artist has finished the painting; Meaning: A chain reaction of all the multitude of noise has happened there for quite a long time until the big bang happened and he stopped. Step 5: Artist looks at the painting; Meaning: The noise inside and the noise outside is now the same. In a way, SILENCE. The air organism has heard it, the light organism has heard it, and the sound is travelling far because this sound is incredibly new to a lot of people. Step 6: People know it because the air told them; Meaning: People get attracted to the sound and want to listen to it more and more. Step 7: Somebody wants to keep it as a 1st class ticket to the DIRECTION: Meaning: The person wants the sounds to come out of his/her place. Now, why a person would pay for a TWEET which everybody can already see? Answer: Yes, we can already see it but we DIDN'T, until it was bought. The purchase has not just attracted a lot of people's heads, but most importantly the creator's head. The person who made this tweet, the artist who made effort to let that noise out, has refreshed his past efforts and is again giving a lot of value to his art. The resonance and big bang and the comfortable SILENCE of that direction.

So many people in the comments miss the point of NFTs. Humans are irrational and sentimental creatures, and we get attached things that are original or unique. Think of an artwork like starry starry night, you can essentially get a high quality reproduction that is almost indiscernible for a few hundred or thousand. But it won’t be highly valued cos it was not the original piece of canvas that Van Gogh touched and laid his brush on. NFTs are simply the digital version of that. Same goes for the orange jacket, you can easily replace it but the original jacket has value because he’s has memories attached to it. There’s no need for you to have it but people want it because of it’s significance. Is it irrational? Most def. is it a bubble and overvalued? Probably.

So I think I understand what NTS are…The part I don’t understand is why are people buying them?? I don’t understand how any of this stuff has value. Physical items have value, but digital pictures, videos & music are all over the internet for free, so why are people paying for em? Unless there’s something I’m still missing, I just don’t get it…🤯🤯

I had to leave this post here as a sign of gratitude since that, is one of the least she asked of me. From my calculations, I made $5,200 in 24 hours of trading sessions ..since Mrs Brianna Keith started managing my account, I haven't experienced any regrets in continuing binary options trading, though i lost a lot when I started as a newbie. but since i met her i have always been smiling, i feel so much joy each time i log in daily to see my trade records and balance..she is indeed a good expert, experience....

Literal digital curatorship. In its historical analog form, soon after followed guilds and patronage systems. Actually makes me excited for some reason. Like its a validation of digital space as true integration of our civilization. But, people who are looking at this like the next big money print are flat out misinformed. If you look at the most valuable of these NFTs, they all reserve some secondary cultural/memetic meaning in their short historical context. CREATING NFTs for the sole sake of high profit returns on the other hand, will simply not work the same way people had to learn the hard way how you can't force things to go viral or become cult works. Also, unlike physical art which is carried based on its material and speculative value combined, these NFTs are only based on their speculative value, which unlike physical works of curatorship, are very quickly deprecated.

Can NFTs on gold be more valuable than gold? Then can a NFT on an art work be more valuable than the art itself, with even less legal ownership rights? Then, why pay $65 million for a crypto token?

Looks like it's money laundering for the rich the same way they buy million dollars worth of 'fine art' which are fixed by them for them to be tax deductible, hence 1-pixel being bought for 1.7million (cause someone owed someone money but doesn't want to say why but now great, it's also tax deductible!) and fanatical hype for the rest.

If you were in the Gold Rush era and told them, "hey, I'm going to put your gold in a virtual cloud. Do you believe me? " . That' how we advance this concepts. its too early, but is going to catch on. early adopters, prepare your engines to find ways to adopt and invest. This is the time, our kids would say, " dad why didn't you invest shit back then!?"

Based on how you explained what blockchain was, you are better off staying away from crypto. Edit: I was typing that half way through the video and stopped to give you a shot. Please stay away from crypto, you literally said it the worst way possible. For anyone that wants to know about the block chain. It is way more secure than any bank on the planet. You forgot to mention that in your video. Literally putting your money in a online wallet, gives you 0 fraud, Unless you consider the fees being a little high then I’ll agree with you there. I’m not gonna get into more detail but do some better research than this tool.
