Messy nft drop infosec with portraits

Worth $532M” Both Cory Doctorow and Matthew Gault and Jordan Pearson have fun with the latest meme about NFTs, “Right-Clicker-Mentality”. (Tip of the hat to Barry Ritholtz)

Gault and Pearson explain the meme:

what is the “right-clicker mentality”? Quite literally, it is referring to one’s ability to right-click on any image they see online to bring up a menu and select the “save” option in order to save a copy of the image to their device. In this term we have a microcosm of the entire philosophical debate surrounding NFTs. I join in below the fold.They continue:NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are unique tokens on the blockchain ostensibly representing a receipt of ownership pointing to some (usually) digital thing, like a JPEG hosted on a server somewhere.

879 reads The non-fungible token, or NFT, is a form of digital works of art.

Multiple names were misspelled on the portraits, including EFF speech activist Jillian York and OpenPGP creator Jon Callas. One drawing was also based on a copyright-protected photograph.

York tweeted a link to her own portrait and simply said: “I don’t approve of this whatsoever and would like it removed.”

In a Medium post, ItsBlockchain stated that it would be “shutting down” the collection due to the backlash and offered full refunds to any purchasers.
“We were not aware of the likeness laws in NFTs as the market is not regulated,” the post stated. “It’s our mistake. We have to own up to it.”

In order to become mainstream, applications in decentralised finance will have to be as easy to use as an iPhone and cheaper than dealing with conventional financial intermediaries.BTC transaction fees The risks inherent in a system attempting to provide immutable, anonymous transactions make “easy to use” and “cheaper” a considerable stretch. Especially as “gas” is volatile, cheap when few want to transact and expensive when many do.
I wrote about this problem in Blockchain: What’s Not To Like?:CryptoKitties average “price” per transaction spiked 465% between November 28 and December 12 as the game got popular, a major reason why it stopped being popular. The same phenomenon happened during Bitcoin’s price spike around the same time.
The second problem is energy:Our modest experiment created as many emissions as a seat on a long-haul flight.
To be an NFT collector is to philosophically buy into the idea that owning this string of numbers means you “own” a JPEG that lesser people simply right-click to save on their machines at any time. I wrote in NFTs and Web Archiving about the tenuous relationship between an NFT and the thing it purports to “own”:the purchaser of an NFT is buying a supposedly immutable, non-fungible object that points to a URI pointing to another URI.
In practice both are typically URLs. The token provides no assurance that either of these links resolves to content, or that the content they resolve to at any later time is what the purchaser believed at the time of purchase.

The very fact that you have heard of an NFT, even if you do not really know what the term means, puts you in an elite company. You see, the vast majority of the public has never heard of an NFT, and a sizable minority are still unfamiliar with crypto as either a concept or a tangible asset class.

If you ask 100 people on the street what the letters NFT mean, you are likely to get more blank stares than correct answers. So what does that mean for you and your future NFT investments? How can the unfamiliarity of the marketplace work to your advantage? Why is now the right time to get in on the ground floor of what is likely to be the next big thing? Here are some of the key things you need to know.

They seek to define new NFT standards through industry standardization channels like the EIP process by which common APIs and smart contract templates on Ethereum are defined. This is not a silver bullet, as the protocols and low-level engineering behind NFTs are perhaps the most decentralized and market-driven aspect of the sector, but such standards can still have value.

Adding strong identity and security features to these normative definitions would be a big step toward aligning the emerging marketplaces’ interoperably around common patterns of freezability, blocklisting, authenticity, and licensing anchor points. “Our definition of what a non-fungible token is is still evolving, with multiple interesting variants gaining traction,” says Juan Caballero, standards coordinator at Centre Consortium, which works on standardization and tooling for the crypto sector.

New York Times for between between $1 million (£758,345) and $5 million. Now the Independent reveals why the game’s creator took that step.

“Because so many people were cloning it and making money from it without his permission.” Josh Wardle, a Welsh software engineer who now lives in Brooklyn, New York, said in a talk on Thursday that selling to the Times was “a way to walk away” from the pressure he felt to stop his creation being exploited…. The game’s success inspired numerous smartphone apps that simply copied Mr Wardle’s version while adding ads, in-app-purchases, or subscription fees, many of which were later removed from Apple’s app store.

Speaking at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Mr Wardle said: “That isn’t money that I would have made, because I said I don’t want to make money, but something about that felt really deeply unpleasant for me.
