Worthless JPEGs: Redditor turns NFT criticism into NFTs

A Redditor made it his mission to turn the tides on nonfungible token (NFT) critics by minting a collection using the top anti-NFT comments they found on the internet.

In a Reddit post, user busterrulezzz introduced the NFT collection titled Worthless JPEGs! in an attempt to bring entertainment to crypto enthusiasts while critics of the space are rejoicing during the crypto winter. The Redditor collected quotes from Redditors and famous critics like Warren Buffet, Peter Schiff and Dan Olson and minted them as NFTs.

Additionally, the Redditor said that this is a move that documents the sheer hatred that the blockchain space is getting and mock the non-believers. They wrote:

“With this collection, my objective is to summarize what skeptics have to say about NFTs, capturing an era that I am sure will be studied for decades to come.”

According to the Redditor, the quotes come with a signature that pays homage to what they describe as the trolling that is very common in our blockchain ecosystem. Apart from this, they noted that the nonfungible tokens (NFTs) also contain hidden easter eggs that point to the Ethereum blockchain.

Lastly, the creator of the NFT collection also claimed that they are following experts' advice to build during the bear market. “They say to build something during the bear market, so I did,” they wrote.

As the bear market continues, unique NFT projects are popping up within the space. Earlier in August, Google’s artificial intelligence (AI) software was used to reimagine Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs into machine-made abstract paintings. The project was called Artsy Monke, combining technology with art, according to its creators.

In a recent interview with Cointelegraph, NFT expert Ahren Posthumus highlighted that it's a good time to purchase NFTs while the prices are down. However, the expert urged investors to be vigilant in choosing which projects to invest in.

Polygon’s vice president of global business development for gaming, Urvit Goel, believes games that integrate nonfungible tokens (NFTs) have a natural edge on traditional games that don’t allow users to sell their in-game items. Goel spoke candidly with Cointelegraph in Seoul last week about Polygon’s push toward helping NFT games proliferate and why game publishers in South Korea like Neowiz and Nexon are diving headfirst into the space. One of the main arguments Goel made is that the traditional business model that NFT games are competing against may be inherently weaker. In traditional gaming, users typically buy in-game items with real money, but they cannot sell those items to get back any United States dollar value. However, with most games in the gaming finance (GameFi) space, users can buy items as nonfungible tokens and sell them when they are done playing the game. Goel referred to the traditional model as “money in, no money out,” and emphasized that gamers should be able to..
