EDIT (5/7/21) ** Since publishing Part 1, a number of new developments (broken URLs, NFT crash, etc) have developed, and thus I’ve addressed those + criticisms of this piece in a Part 2.
If you are confused about the current controversy surrounding NFTs/cryptocurrency then please read. I know it’s long.
Who are you and why are you writing this?
First and foremost, I want to apologize for how long it took to publish this. I know many of you were anticipating an immediate follow-up to Part 1, but writing that took an incredible amount of time and effort, which unfortunately was not realistic due to a lack of time. Instead, Part 2 will focus more on my own perspectives and address individual criticisms of Part 1.
At this point, you are either against NFTs or not. Honestly, I’m surprised that people are still talking about them since this is the internet and the internet as we all know has…
