The big metawares project makes a lot of sense to spend a considerable amount of money to own virtual objects.
Enthusiasm for NFTs does not seem to be declining. These “fungus-free tokens” have become widely popular in recent months and continue to sell for considerable sums.
The latest proof that these digital certificates are finally available to everyone: a boy was able to raise $ 400,000 by selling works made in paint. Benjamin Ahmed, a 12-year-old Londoner with some ideas of computer code, was inspired by the same animal emoji and sold works by 3,350 whales.
What are NFTs? “Fungus-free tokens” in French, certificates of authenticity attributed to digital work. On the Internet, as infinite everything is “copyable”, NFTs allow you to be a job-appropriate and individual and unique owner. The authenticity of these certificates is made possible by blockchains, a storage technology that allows data repositories to be encrypted and identified, inviolable and non-copyable.
NFT Madness started more or less last March, when an artist by the name of People auctioned a digital work titled “Daily: The First 5000 Days” for an astronomical sum of $ 69.3 million. This highly publicized purchase inspired others. Twitter founder Jack Dorsey marketed his first tweet in a similar fashion, for $ 3 million.
Web developer Tim Berners-Lee sold the first code of the World Wide Web for 5.4 million. The amount allocated to NFTs is still enormous.
Will the future be virtual?
Paying such sums for virtual, really abstract works is a confusing concept. However, whether one follows this practice or not, it is logical that Mark Zuckerberg describes it as his new fashion, the metawares. This semi-virtual, semi-real universe, launched with the workspace already provided by Facebook, has composite elements.
Whether we adhere to this concept or not, NFT’s policy is completely metaverse. Many examples of this can already be attested: the success of concerts in Fort Night involves enjoying an artist’s performance while in the game.
Hot Couture House, Dolce & Gabbana, recently launched its first collection on the NFT and standardizes “virtual” clothing by extension so that you can decorate your avatar – our digital version – as well as the development of virtual reality headsets is a big asset in this regard.
From this perspective, NFTs get their full meaning. Until the metaverse happens, there are still a few steps. For now, some attempts to activate the metawares are far from the author of its author, Science Fiction. Neil Stevenson, had imagined.
The most convincing example to date – it fits right into the context of the epidemic, comes from Facebook – which wants to turn the concept into its hobby. To confirm its status, the social network Horizon introduced workshops.
