    If you think that scarcity will be introduced back into the digital world, I have a bridge to sell to you. That horse was killed long ago and all you do is beating its corpse.

    Once something is digital, you can own it, but you can't limit its spread. If you haven't learned that yet you're a moron.

    A new scheme to milk the top whales even further. There is always more money to be made with "gamers" today.

    Third reason: they want to sell each copy of a game as an NFT tied to the game's key so that if Europe ever decides you have the right to sell your used PC game they can force the resale to take place on a network they control to profit off each transaction.

    Are you really blind to the trend that this is going away? You might need to possess an NFT to even boot up one of your video games in the future. It's all going to become more and more integrated into systems that enable greater control. You're stuck in the mindset of early 90's Internet that was far less centralized. Video games are already sold as subscriptions rather than as physical media that you can use independently however you like. The new Hitman games by IO have content you have to connect to their servers for and it's a singleplayer game, you can't pirate that. Control will be going from you to the big corporations that can enforce things on the web, everything can then be monetized and scarcity can be introduced. Everyone's favorite service, Steam, already has a complete virtual economy since their reach is as great as it is. You already have to pay virtual coins to get the virtual avatar you want. Take that and then project it over the wider ecosystem on the net.

    Since the net went commercial this has always been the direction things have been going and it's not going to stop or change anytime soon.

    You're just ignoring the bigger picture in order to willfully not get it. Fuck it then, I can pretend to be retarded and make shitposts too. NFTs are a goldmine and you're just a poorfag that can't afford to invest in it. Cry some more. NFT quintillionaire by 2024 while you will be living in a mudhut and pirating Brazilian fart porn. Davos grindset will take humanity to Mars.

    If you think that's real money you have in your human leather wallet that you can use however you want in the slums then you'll be surprised when I pay off Monsanto with my dogecoin gains to retire their copyrighted cereal grain that happens to be your favorite and replace it with the droppings of GMO rats. Then I'll bribe your water ration officer to exclude you from the state mandated weekly pint while I toast with Elon on Mars.

    Can't wait for Dope Bear to come crawling back crying when all his quintillions dissolve into nothing and he discovers that it was really jews and not his own stupidity all along.

    Because they constantly need new members who are dumb enough to believe that their bytes stored on the blockchain have any value. The moment everyone tries to cash out at the same time the whole system will crash and burn so they need to keep the scam running.

    Can we get some sort of cryptobro tag for Drop Bear?

    It'll be a good warning for people that haven't seen this thread that he's an insane cultist.

    The only person ignoring the future ITT is you, Bear.

    What you describe, is not something any of us will participate in. It is too far, and the line you want to cross is sanity.

    They can make this push. I will not participate in that economy, and since I'm increasingly not participating in the "real" economy anyways, this is just a further push in the direction I'm already inclined to.

    Your assumptions are also based on endless supply of cheap electricity. Your supply will be neither endless, or cheap.

    Like a child with a new toy, so giddy he hasn't realized he shit his pants.

    Or, if I were to say it more like a proper Codexian -

    Shut the fuck up retard.

    anyone who has played an MMO is already aware of "play to earn" being a thing, and thirdworlders earn pennies an hour doing it. They have to bot multiple(that is, dozens) of accounts simultaneously and it becomes a fulltime job to make something close to western minimum wage.
