Line Goes Up: The Problem With NFTs

This seems like precisely the sort of follow-the-money deep dive I want to see on this topic, but it’s written as an essay, not a video. By now, enough ink has been spilled about 21st century economics and crypto to make clear that words alone won’t demystify them, and a YouTuber reading the words aloud against a blank backdrop doesn’t change that. The incredibly dry presentation is a poor fit for the arcane financial and technical concepts it tries to unpack, and the infrequent attempts it makes to actually visualize that information do little to aid comprehension. I called it quits after 15 minutes.
