My 1st NFT


Recommended Posts

I just started making my first NFT. An article and @DCComics pushed me over the edge. I had been hearing about it for awhile.
 

DC Comics gave me my first. I then scanned an article in The Economist  which motivated me to take the plunge to create my own.

 

So far I am using OpenSea and Coinbase wallet.  I hope to have my first one ready by the end of the weekend. Follow me on OpenSea and let’s see how things develop. https://opensea.io/Daniellegfny

Congratulations.  

 

I dabbled in nifties a few months ago.

 

Coinbase is starting its own NFT platform 

for buying and selling.

 

Check it out.

What is an "NFT"...another internet scam?

One of those crypto-currency TRAPS that have been set up to shift money around and make you think you're actually gaining something in the confusion?

Ain't building a damn thing...just playing games and tricking people out of what little money they DO have.

What!!!

 

You don't know what a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) is? 

 

These were all the rage a few months ago, and then they weren't,

but now they are again. 

 

People call them nifty or nifties.
 

Beeple sold an NFT for $69 million

I thought that ALL tokens were non-fungible, if you kept them in a cool dry spot.

but now they are again. 

 

Don't worry....once they get a few more "Daniels" to invest in them...like the Terminator -they'll be back, lol.

But that should let you know right then and there something is SHIFTY about them.

If the value is THAT unstable that it can rise and fall like that, it tells you it's a scam with a string attached.
They sucker people in to take their money and when they get enough suckers sucked in...then they lower the boom and take the cash and dash.


Now honestly young lady, how much REAL hard-currency cash were you able to make off of investing in this stuff?
You don't have to tell me all your business...but did you make atleast over....say....$200 profit, investing in it?????

Yeah???

 

 

image.jpeg.a342f50bf52aa2558d4abf66f8e566cc.jpeg

"Well they should stop calling
them "nifties"  and start calling
them "SHIFTIES".


Because the whole thing sounds SHIFTY to me.
Some of those involved in inventing them were probably shifty as hell and designed them not only to cheat folks out of their REAL currency but get them in trouble with the IRS.

I'm not sure if they lost value, for some reason people lost interest in them, 

it may have been because Bitcoin kept fluctuating.  

 

I created some digital artwork that I was going to put on the galleries but

it was too involved, I had a bunch of other things going on, and then I

heard that people lost interest so I didn't pursue it.

 

But I still have all my artwork and it doesn't take long to make more. 

 

It's just a hassle getting it onto the platforms because you have to

mint it and go through a bunch of rigmarole.

A few cats mentioned something  to me about investing in a crypto-currency. 

 

So, I'm thinking I could break these chumps off with some change wtih an understanding of how much I could make at some point in time. 

 

Well, it wasn't quite that simple.  It was more like entering the 36 Chambers of Wu-Tang.

 

I didn't even bother to follow up.  It could have been related to some NFT sh8t or something similar.

 

Oh well, I'll never know.  I've still got the fungi-colored money in my safe and underneath the mattress. 😁😎

That crypto-currency jive is nothing but a TRAP to reel people in and take their REAL money.
And quite possibly get them imprisoned.

A few years ago I heard people bragging about how it's untraceable and you don't know who's doing what with bit-coins.

I said.....
 

getTV - Nathaniel Taylor (1938–2019) would have been 83 today. He's a '70s  TV icon as Rollo Lawson, but he's also in movies like TROUBLE MAN (1972),  WILLIE DYNAMITE (1974) and PASSING

 

"Fool...if YOU know about it,
why wouldn't the IRS and FBI?"

 

 

They know who's got what...and what they're doing with it.
They're just sitting back and waiting to make their move.
 

Next thing you know you see strings of people in cuffs being hauled into Federal court in bit-coin scams.
Yet they CLAIM it's the new currency and nobody can find out about it.

 

These people come up with one scam after another.
That's why Black people need to HURRY UP and buy our own land, grow our own food, and build our own cities so so many of our people won't end up caught in these traps they put out.

Like we talked about in the other thread.....when you don't mind actually WORKING and PRODUCING something for the money you're getting, you're not a susceptible to be suckered into these schemes.

It’s not as complicated as it seems. That may have been part of the hesitation and renewed interest.

Either that, or Crypto currency is a monsterous MUTATION of the credit card.

 

Credit cards are stable and the value of them are stable.

…REAL money


What real money are you talking about? The money we use today is not “real.” 
 

Indeed all money is based upon a fiction we create and choose to believe.
 

Today I rarely use currency. Why should I?

 

This morning I threw away a penny. It is worthless and i have no reason to carry it around. Why they continue to mint those things makes no sense to me. They probably cost more to make than they are worth.

 

Cryptocurrency really is the future. Because there is no central authority controlling it, making it far more secure and efficient It is global and virtually unhackable.

 

As far as NFT I’m looking into getting into that space, but I’m proceeding with caution because … well you know our people….

People Are Taking Out Loans Against Their NFTs—And Defaulting 

The Block recently reported on a trader who borrowed 3.5 ETH (around $12,000) on NFTFi, offering an NFT that had last sold for 3.25 ETH. Over the next three months, the value of NFTs from the same collection skyrocketed to around $300,000 on the low end. On October 10, the loan period ended, the borrower failed to repay the loan, and the NFT—now worth many times more than the original loan—was taken. 

 

It’s just like other loans pay back what you borrow.

Stop letting PROPAGANDA BRANCHES of racism...otherwise known as the mainstream media....trick you  into investing in these ponzi scheme that are designed to take what little REAL money you do have.
 

REAL wealth is accumulated through work, ownership, and SAFE investments like real estate and things that are solid and somewhat stable.

These racist White folks get on Fox or CNBC and tell you that stock market is about to crash or the economy is about to collapse any minute...so you better invest in gold NOW...and they get naive or gullible people  to invest in whatever organization they're working.

But the crash they've been predicting for 40 years...hasn't happened.


The dollar that they've been preaching would fall for over 40 years now......hasn't fell.

But some of you are STILL sitting on the couch with an evil grin on your face, rubbing your hands together EXPECTING for the world wide economy to collapse any time now so you can cash in your bit-coins or fake-gold or whatever you were silly enough to invest REAL money in.

Keep listening to these White folks and keep waiting........

I don’t post about my income on the forums.  

 

Nor do I concern myself with other people’s income.

 

My next door neighbor is a doctor.  I assume that he 

is a millionaire, but am I going to ring his doorbell to 

ask him how much he earns, invests, or what’s in his

bank account?  Of course not, that is crass.

 

The next house is a regional insurance franchisee. 

I’m pretty sure he’s a millionaire too.  

 

You need to get out of the mindset of worrying about

whether some other person made $100K and figure

out what you can do to monetize NFTs and/or crypto

for yourself, if that is something that interests you.

 

And if it doesn’t, then don’t.  

 

Nobody is trying to force you to do anything.  

 

Do you.

Many lessons have been learned since the last stock market crash. Economists have implemented moving goal posts,, er. fail safes to insure that it doesn't happen again. That's why they like to play with interest rates and debt ceilings.

 

Again, former POTUS GWB Jr. called it a house of cards. I agree.  Currency isn't backed by anything nowadays. It's all in the cloud.😁😎

1. I didn't say crashes didn't occur and won't occur in the future.
I'm saying YOU'RE BEING LIED TO because the crashes that your Conservative heroes like Hal Lindsey and G. Gordon Liddy have been predicting for nearly 40 years have NOT happened.

They're selling you a crock of shit to get you to buy their 5-karat gold or participate in their other investment schemes.


2. If a crash DOES happen...it won't be by accident.
It will be a CONTROLLED DEMOLITION just like most recessions and depressions are.
Trust that some group at the top has orchestrated it and will benefit from it and all of that fake-gold and crypto-crap you're investing in will do you no good anyway.

I met G Gordon Liddy when he came to my campus in the 80’s. He told an amusing tale of the origins of the Colt 45. As for the rest of what he said, I don’t recall. I am not an Idol worshipper. My hero’s as a child were my father and the people in Golden Legacy Comics.

Ignorance is why you are trapped ranting on the internet about things you have no first hand knowledge of. Secondly, America will eventually fall as a nation. The only real problem with crypto currencies is that it needs power to operate. That’s something paper money doesn’t have to worry about.

I find this type of reporting very misleading, as it gives the impression a 9-year-old can mine bit coin, surely anyone can.  Of course they do not relate the entire story... From everything I've read it is no longer practical for an individual to mine bitcoin the competition is just too stiff and the barriers to entry are too high today.  Of course for people like @Pioneer1 (and even myself) this makes the entire space seem overhyped and scammy.

Well, you're talking to a guy who hasn't made over $60,000 in a year...yet.
So I'm clearly not rich and I don't know much about Wallstreet and investments admittedly.
But I can smell scams a mile away 

When people start trying to sell me on something by saying......

 

image.jpeg.0f7bb7d8d25a9a2ab25c4e7664747bad.jpeg

"Invest in Bitcoin!
The IRS can't trace it.
The government can't control it
You can do whatever you want to do with it".


That right there raises red flags!
The IRS and government monitors nearly all financial transactions on line whether they ANNOUNCE they're monitoring it or not.
A FOOL sit there thinking they're being slick and sneaky and can actually make millions and hide it on the World Wide Web.

Also when I repeatedly ask people (as I have on here) how much money have YOU made doing "this" or "that", and they either tell me "nothing yet but---" or start getting angry and figidty and don't want to admit they've made little to nothing -that raises MORE red flags.

It's like those Amway pyramid schemes where THEY make money by getting you to invest YOUR REAL MONEY into their schemes

Hello @Troy

 

I don't think it's misleading at all.

 

The article states that the children's father helped them get started and

set things up.  And that he took out a loan to finance this.

 

It states all the equipment that they are using and that they are also renting  

space for their graphics cards at a data center in Dallas.  

 

Can somebody with no knowledge and no money start this type of crypto 

mining operation?  Probably not.

 

But if you can invest a couple thousand dollars, and you are able to parlay 

and reinvest that money back into it, you could get to that level in a few 

months.

I know nothing about high finance but I do know i don't feel comfortable with all of disposable income being in a bank account.  i don't trust banks.  i also know that checks are becoming obsolete, mostly because younger Millennials can't write in cursive and don't know how to sign their names. I transact business nowadays exclusively with credit cards.

I read the article, so why lead with "These 14- and 9-year-old siblings earn over $30,000 a month mining cryptocurrency" or your paraphrasing "14- and 9-year-old siblings earn over $30,000 a month" when it is not really the truth.  You admit the articles says the dad took out a loan (how much money did he borrow), and that they are renting space (how much space how much does it cost?).  Neither of these things is something a 9 and 14 years old can do on their own -- no matter how precocious they appear in the interview.

 

The truth of the matter is it takes a lot more than a few $3K graphics to mine bitcoin.  You need large scale operation with dedicated computers optimized for mining to make this profitable today -- and they may actually have that, but don't try to tell me that a couple of kids set all this up. 

 

Look, I know media use click-baity headlines. "...9-year-old siblings earn over $30,000..." to attract eyeballs to serve ads, but all this does is confuse people.  The fact that you came away from the article with the notion that:

Others see the whole space as Ponzi scheme because the reporting on this subject is so poor. So I'm not surprised that @Pioneer1 would have that impression you really have to dig and do a lot of filter to begin to understand what is going on.

Most people do.  Again, I rarely use paper currency, the desire to reduce the number of touch points during the pandemic has only increased this.  The US lags most industrial nations with it comes electronic transactions.
