Would Pocahontas buy NFTs? 🍂
How many of the most precious things in life have a material component?
And how many of those precious things would gain by becoming more tangible?
Can you define a conversion rate for the ephemeral and the ineffable?
We have grown used to converting land to deeds, and time to money.
But now we can do better, and have the means to make anything available for barter.
Metaverses are coming, and with them, the need to re-create scarcity.
But if NFTs can capture everything, it might not mean they should.
Of course, artists will thrive, and talent will be rewarded.
But otherwise we might not get richer by creating an NFT of the blue corn moon, or by Pantone matching the colours of the wind.
Or maybe developing a conservative streak is just one of the signs of the passing of time…
