My wife will tell you I was very anti-NFTs as of July 2021. “It has no value.”, “Who the hell will buy a JPEG?” Etc. Etc.
My thought processes regarding NFTs are largely the same, however, I realized what I think really doesn’t matter? Who the hell made me the arbiter of value? Who am I to tell someone how to spend their own money?
Then I saw adolescents flipping these JPEGs for large sums. At a certain point you have to begin asking yourself, “Am I missing something?”. NFTs have no value to me, however, they have thought me a lot about learning to roll with the tide and to remain open to possibility.
How many times has that happened in our world? Famous economists and businessmen at one time called the internet a passing fad. Hedge fund managers used to doubt bitcoin. And now NFTs are attracting the attention of prominent corporations and individuals. Are NFTS a passing fad? Maybe. Maybe not. However, I argue they are something to look into based on the underlying technology and its possible utility.
Remain open. Some of the best ideas are things we can’t even fathom right now. Learn to merge them within your areas of expertise. Think like a winner.
