What the NFT? (Archived 2021)

Azealia Banks and her partner Ryder Ripps recently sold their audio sex tape as an NFT (Non Fungible Token) for $17,000. That audio was then bought anonymously by Rulton Fyder for $260million. Right now you are asking yourself what an NFT is and how do I get in on some of that action

First of all, what is a Non Fungible Token? 

Rolling Stone magazine defines it thusly
  The technology is called an NFT, short for a non-fungible token, a cryptocurrency that’s basically a certificate of authenticity

The New York Times defines it as

An NFT is an asset verified using blockchain technology, in which a network of computers records transactions and gives buyers proof of authenticity and ownership. The current boom is mostly for digital assets, including images, GIFs, songs or videos. Most importantly, NFTs make digital artworks unique, and therefore sellable.

Wikipedia defines it as

non-fungible token (NFT) is a digital file whose unique identity and ownership are verified on a blockchain (a digital ledger).[1][2] NFTs are not mutually interchangeable (see fungibility). NFTs are commonly created by uploading files, such as digital artwork, to an auction market. This creates copies of the files, which are recorded as NFTs on the digital ledger. The tokens can then be bought with cryptocurrency and resold.

 Is your head exploding yet? It soon will. Upon further research, we found out that you have to get  a Foundation invite, which is a marketplace for NFTs in order to sell art, digital files etc....

Art Min from Medium.com explains a Foundation invite

Foundation is an invite only NFT marketplace where anyone can join, as long as you have a Metamask wallet. As long as you have Ethereum, you can purchase any artwork on the Foundation platform. But, you can’t mint NFTs for sale. Only artists who have previously sold at least one NFT can create an invite that unlocks the NFT sales feature. Once an artist sells a NFT, they will receive an invite code which can be used to invite other creators.  

 Have you been educated? Or are you still walking to the nearest ATM to type your pin number and have the machine give you paper money. 

The world has changed my friends, traditional banks and financial institutions will have to compete or make way for the wild wild west of Cryptocurrency and Bitcoin....so saddle up boys and girls, we are going for a ride into the new frontier

Kaluya wins Oscar for Best Supporting actor......in his own starring movie???

One of the worst, low budget Oscars in recent memory took place and not many cared to watch it. Don't believe us? check out the ratings report  or this ratings report   or this ratings report

But those of us who did watch, did so hoping to see the late Chadwick Boseman win for (it doesn't matter) He deserved a post humorous award just as the late Heath Ledger did for The Dark Knight. But instead, Boseman did not win and Daniel Kaluya, who was the star of his own movie, Judas and the Black Messiah, won for best supporting actor......what?????

 Wikipedia defines a supporting actor as...

supporting actor is an actor who performs a role in a play or film below that of the leading actor(s), and above that of a bit part. In recognition of important nature of this work, the theater and film industries give separate awards to the best supporting actors and actresses.

See where we have highlighted, below that of the leading actor. Daniel Kaluya was the leading actor, but he got a supporting award. I guess they are smarter than we are, because that makes zero sense. 

Kaluya was the star of his movie, so how does he get nominated as a supporting actor along with his supporting actor LaKeith Stanfield. So are they telling us that Judas and the Black Messiah starred 2 supporting actors? 

That's like saying Jack Bauer was nominated for an Emmy for best supporting actor for 24 or Kim Kardashian was nominated for best supporting actress in Keeping Up With The Kardashians or Denzel for best supporting actor for Malcolm X.

NONESENSE!

Oscars have become irrelevant, political, out of touch and tone deaf. The people have spoken.

The Ugandan government has allotted a square mile of land for Akon to build his futuristic city that runs on his AKoin stellar based cryptocurrency. The musician turned mogul previously built a similar city in his native Senegal and is looking to duplicate the formula in Uganda.
