I m not protecting that silly Ape image and would never pay such amount of money for it even if i had.
I m against copying of other peoples artwork, this NFT is very good for artists to protect their art, and if you not know the future will be without much paper, but instead used holograms and projections of images on walls, for sure the NFT's will play a role into this.
Possibly. Not a very green way of displaying art, on the other hand you don't have to worry about UV light, I guess.

Don't think it will ever compare to a real painting. Photographs can be art but a photograph of a masterpiece doesn't compare to seeing it in real life in a museum. They are breathtaking.

Now imagine that you are an artist, you draw a very beautiful art and try to sell at your established price based on the hard work you did, then someone smarty pants comes and duplicates your concept and sells it at cheaper price, how you will feel after this?
I have experience with grabbers and will never forget how they shared my work to others for free, you must go through the process to understand it.
I do understand it. I used to cut pictures of classic art out of magazines and put them on the wall in nice frames. My friend, a photographer would have a ****-fit because I was "stealing a picture" of artwork in the public domain.

People have different values and will behave differently. It doesn't make what they do right, I"m just saying what I think.

The reason why I did not started to draw is because of those grabbers lurking on internet to see what to lazy grab.
If you are not technician like me you will not be able to foresee the future, of course even in the future will be grabbers trying to grab and modificate something free of charge just to not pay.
That is my point. There is no difference between your electronic drawing and a copy, except the NFT. That will matter to some people but not most.

NFT's may help in copyright protection and prevent people from selling your artwork openly but not casually. No different than copy protection on CD or DVD.
Aditionally as soon I comented about (navy + green) colors to be used for Epik now every website uses them, look at DAN even added more ways of payments as I did on my web, just a bunch of grabbers.

LOL :)

Seems like an entire industry powered by FOMO although where they're afraid of missing out on is a mystery to me. Inguess it's just a status symbol thing but as you say that doesn't really ring true in that anyone can have and use the exact same image.

Yep but only one is the original. The great irony is the art in question is not original only computer generated.

if you believe Booth spent 7 figures for a jpg, you might be interested in buying a homestead on the moon. Just my opinion.

Not saying this is how you can make unlimited computer-generated images for an NFT, but it sure looks that way.

Easy way to dupe some people out of money if you are artistic.

Maybe someone can help answer my question… why would I spend $300k on an image I can get a graphic designer to design for me for $50

"It's art" is all that can be said, with naysayers being told, "you just don't get it".

I don't get it.

I do get the risk/reward factor about it, no doubt there's money to be made now, and for those who capitalized on the movement, good for them.

It's simple you must understand the art and the artist to be able to value his work, and don't forget most of so called designers are a bunch of copy cats without imagination, that is why they work for food. :D
