RE: NFTing The World

in LeoFinance5 months ago

So those people around here who consistently claim content is worthless, art is overvalued, yadda yadda yadda, etc... they were wrong?

Actually, I knew that. It was 2016 when I started earning crypto with art. I'm one of the first in the world to be 'successful' in that arena. I knew once crypto and art began to gel, this is the road we'd be on.


There you go! This is conceptual proof that a content generating platform like Hive doesn’t need a conventional add based access based model to create value and bake it into our coin.

I have heard people (here on Hive) adamantly speak their mind saying that Hive won’t be a success without reverting to advertisement. I have always voiced my opinion to the contrary.

We live in an Information Age (transferring to an Attention Age) economy... information has value especially if it’s tokenized via blockchain technology. We don’t need to bring adds into our infrastructure to be economically viable... and I think that NFT’s are demonstrating this concisely.

That’s a good thing because NOW is our chance to do something different. Why should we be like all the Social Media 2.0 solutions that are breaking the society and the world.

This is our chance to innovate the future. That’s the exciting part and an add based/access based economic model is just plain boring and a drag.

So yeah! Your comment brought a smile of recognition to my face. 🙂

Never sell yourself short. The artist/creator/whatever with a mind for business never forgets that rule. So of course I'd be a little bit shocked to see investors offering a product and basically calling that product garbage.

I never viewed this platform as social media. More like content distribution/consumption. Social media is a tool one uses to help distribute content further to more people (free of charge, organically, consumers naturally do all the heavy lifting). These days the consumer will spend money on content online. Of course if you tap into that, you don't need ads. Don't even need the middleman between the consumers and creators. All you need is a product and the people who like it, because they bring their money with them.

I yelled at the clouds for years about the lack of consumers and pointed out how only attracting creators is bad for business. I think people thought I was crazy because so many were under the impression the content was worthless but now we're seeing consumer money pouring in. Not so much directly to this chain, but it will come, because we'll offer the consumer a better deal.

People often take something new and bring it back to the reference point they understand.

What that means, when it comes to the Internet, is that money making is through advertising. This is the only thing they can wrap their brains around. It is far beyond their capabilities to grasp that an entirely new model of value is being erected, moving beyond what took place in the past.

The masses are usually wrong especially those in the media and screaming the loudest online.

But then your wallet proves that.
