Frankly, I was in the same boat, I don't like nfts but wasn't quite sure why and this answers it. It's just another way to make rich people more money and have poor people waste their savings to try to fit in and join the hype as well as try to grasp at straws for status. It's ironic because most people who buy nfts would probably not be able to get rid of it as quickly as they would like for profit.

Unfiltered opinion: The reason Jimmy Fallon and Paris flaunted their purchase is to bring more attractions to these NFT so theirs can go up in value. Essentially. These two decided to make this extremely weird unnatural segment to get a nice little increase on their investment. That being said, when you buy pokemon cards and do the unboxing you do them for the entertainment you’re not showing off thinking « damn if these viewers all buy Pokemon cards mine will be worth more » because thats just not how it works. If you do something cringe we’ll tell you no doubt

@Adam W most artists make no money on nfts. they actually lose money because the whole point is the artists HAVE to buy ether or some other coin to mint the nft, and the smart contract to make secondary sales on the art is easy to get around. making artists buy crypro just to mint nfts sucks

In my own point of view, I do believe that by taking coinbase’s money and promoting it, you have inadvertently involved yourself and made yourself “part of the problem.” I’ve never once thought of the sponsorship as being inherently harmful and the fact that you’ve been able to do such cool events like LACS due to their money is something to definitely consider. In terms of scale tho, taking their money and filming a couple ads isn’t the worst thing comparatively, but it is something to consider, especially if you care about the environmental effects that buying into crypto and nfts cause. If it’s something that ever weighs on you, I think there are some great environmental causes and better movements you could always focus on in order to rectify that. But all things considered, your actions have been but a small drop in a bucket, and considering how vocally against you’ve been against NFTs, I can’t imagine anyone would fault you as being a problematic contributor to it at the end of the day.

For determining if you are part of the problem, two questions come to mind: How are you using your money (especially money from potentially exploitative sponsors), and how are you using your platform? I have a positive impression of you in both aspects. I think you use your profits to create higher quality content and to shift some of that money from corporate hands to charities and grassroots communities. And videos like this show me that you use your platform with some responsibility, to be transparent and informative and not shy away from criticizing the hand that feeds you when it's deserved. I think those make you a good example. And at the same time I know my impressions are only based on an image of yourself that you control. I don't know the nitty gritty of your actions behind the scenes, and how that might change the answers to those two questions. I just like what I see, and I hope it's because your values align with the good of the people and that it will keep you on a good path.

I do think partnering with and promoting crypto/crypto companies like coinbase is being part of the problem.

You know, I see your point, and I don't know wether I should agree with it or not, because I'm not a fricking expert on how comparable NFTs and crypto are. All I CAN say is that, cryptocurrency never gave me that unsettled nagging feeling that NFTs do, like how Ludwig said in the video. Maybe that's just because of the way the two ideas are presented differently, with one being an obviously overpriced token saying that you own a piece of digital art, and the other being something that feels like a digital version of currency. Or maybe NFTs are slightly worse than crypto, and that is simply where I draw the line mentally. I don't know.

I often feel weird watching content sponsored by the likes of Coinbase, I do also have that feeling that crypto might also be part of the problem. But overall, at least you keep it real, talk about these stuff and obviously specify that the content is sponsored (not like many celebrities and athletes) so I guess there is a line somewhere for your approach to crypto, but as you say, sometimes its hard to put it into words without being and expert in the subject

I love this channel, it’s awesome & a has really nice way of interacting with viewers without being too ‘parasocial’ :) On the topic of nfts, I personally think that being sponsored by companies who support crypto isn’t that great of an idea. They’re only going to benefit off of you, which then leads to more exposure to the ‘crypto world’, I guess. Already, I’ve read articles about people freezing in their homes because of the effect NFTs truly do have on the environment. I’ll admit it, I was wary at first too, but after looking into everything deeper, I got the full picture and don’t like it at all. I’m sure you could easily find other sponsors who’d be happy to work with you! That’s just my take on the whole thing, but you do you! ^_^ (this is a genuine tone btw, i’m not trying to be an asshole😅)

Do you guys ever experience a sort of disassociation with yourself as well as reality? Without sounding too hippy, anytime I see a celebrity flaunting their unimaginable wealth I get taken aback and I'm like damn I will never be that wealthy. I wonder what it took for them to win the lottery of life. Then from there, I think to myself what do I really want from life? If I can't live a lavish life like those who I see on social media every day, how else will I find happiness or self-fulfillment? I'm not saying it's not possible, but it's just a sort of self-evaluation of what I want from life and the answer is usually unclear for me. Especially being a recent college grad.

Do what you love and if you don't have a thing that you love to do, use every day of your life experiencing new hobbies, things, etc, until you find it. After that, do it as mich as you can and the rest will come by it self. Thats how i think about it. The right partner for life, money, friends, etc, will all come to you if you believe in what you do and work around it everyday. I have been working on my dream to be a full time music producer for over 11 Years now. I sacrificed a lot of things, from relationships to health. I might didn't take the "best" route since i was physically and mentally on an edge. But i pulled through, worked everyday on my craft because i love doing music so much, and now since August 2021 im a full time music producer at a little label, living in my own flat that is being payed by me waking up and doing what i love. I don't wanna brag or say that i have a perfect life, im still fighting myself mentally also it is very lonely here since i had to move away like 400 miles from my old home. But i know one thing: Being able to do what i love on a daily basis gives me the strength to learn that i have to be my best friend. Learning to be the best version of myself. It is easier for me to see social media as an unnecessary little bubble since i have a much bigger focus on going my path and writing my own story. But still, now and then social media gets me and lets me think: Am i even worth it? At the end of the day its all about faith. If someone believes in God, you can't tell him that there is none. And if someone (my mind) tells me that i will not make it in life and be a lonley and sad person, i always try to remember what i believe, and that is that i am made to be happy and successful. Thats my take on this whole thing. Sorry, i maybe was a little confusing. ( not from english speaking country )

You're saying hey I stole your money and I have lots now, sort of gives people the incentive to physically go after you. As for the coinbase sponsorship, I wouldn't say it's comparable. You're straight up saying hey they gave me money to promote them, And not telling people "Hey you should buy this thing, it's the future and will definitely make you money while flexing on people who don't have it"

Sadly the legal surroundings of crypto is pretty hazy. There’s been a lot of rug pulls or pump and dumps but no legal repercussions. He can always hide behind the similar case of squidcoin which was similar yet prevented buyers from selling their shares except for the owner which didn’t have any legal backlash. He can probably just argue that they had the option to sell but chose not to and get off scot free.

End of the day crypto is also based entirely off of the greater fool theory, has no intrinsic value, and is just as damaging for the environment. Still though, while I'm not comfortable with the crypto sponsors and etc, at least you're using the money to support the melee community and not entirely pocketing it (though I'm sure there's some of that too).

Reading about celebrities and NTFs recently has been such a wild ride. Everyday a new name drops on twitter, and it makes you curious about their reasoning behind riding that wave (if there is any) like in the case of Reese Witherspoon and Brie Larson. There was also Troy Baker who announced partnership with an NFT company last month, only to receive major backlash online from fans and coworkers. He later apologized for the way he phrased things in previous tweets then backed out of the partnership. His interview with Alanah Pearce was a healthy conversation about the whole thing, if anyone wants to check it out. My personal opinion? I don't know man I'm still processing the idea of money itself lol, but in the meantime I'm steering clear from anything crypto.

The problem is most of those "alternative" currency started out as pump and dump. You can never tell what is a serious alternative currency until a hundred years in the future. That being said I wouldn't trust ANY currency that isn't based of the value of anything other than how much people give it. I see no difference between giving a bitcoin a value and giving a NFT a value.

Crypto, Dollars, Art, NFTs - it's all intrinsically worthless. They all just have a value because we assign that artificial value. The thing that bothers me about NFTs is how they're purely speculative, and people pretend that "bored apes" or "crypto punks" are beautiful works of art. I doubt that anyone has ever cared for the art. It's all just speculation and a grift. That's what bothers me... and I work in crypto. I'm a software engineer who programs smart contracts for token/NFT people and I've been up close for a while now. it's all just pure marketing and hype. Heccin disgusting. But the programming is fun and man's gotta eat :'D

@Puzzle Box No the US dollar in its current form does not represent physical assets. It represents trust in the federal reserve.

The difference between Crypto and the Dollar is that the Dollar has value due to the country producing it has value. Much like a stock has value due to the company that you buy the stock from has value. The only value Crypto has is what we give it. Nothing more or less. It isn't a representation of anything tangible. Unlike the US economy which has MANY tangible assets which give it's dollar value.

@RGoots The Dollar's value doesn't come from just what we decide on. It is a physical representation of how well America is doing economically. It is closer to a Stock. It represents a physical asset. The country producing the currency. What does Crypto represent value wise? Nothing. It's only value it represents is itself which we give it.

@ToadVII that's not intrinsic value. That's a societal value placed on a representative medium, which we collectively call the American Dollar, Canadian Dollar, etc etc. Physical money is similar to crypto, NFTs, etc. In that It's only worth something because a certain number of people hold value to it - although the scale of how many people is incomparable between those. A huge difference is the governing bodies that regulate the standard currencies vs the new online currencies (crypto and NFTs namely). Money on the whole is just a place holder we use to exchange for goods and services. Alone, without the socioeconomic structure behind it, money is paper, metal, digital numbers on a screen, or whatever other material used to make it with no inherent value but an agreed upon representative value.

while i have great respect for you and love your content i must admit the first time i saw you did a sponsorship with a crypto i was disappointed because of the heavy impact blockchain has on the environment and frankly I thought "i thought he knew better". You're not the same as the people who go and actively participate in it. and in the end it is all about how you feel about yourself and your doings.

I haven't really thought about it before and I didn't judge you for taking the sponsorships that enable you to do cool stuff but honestly after seeing this video and thinking it through I don't think it's that different... you aren't as cringy bc you don't blatendly promote crypto as the main part of a piece of content (even tho the Pocemon cards are on the line there) but to me it's part of the problem since it still takes part in promoting crypto to your audience of regular people as a rich dude and normalizing it. It's great that you took this as a chance to reflect on yourself and I hope you also use it to make some other choices in the future. Great vid!

I feel like advertising a service in which you can purchase things is extremely different that advertising what is essentially stock that you have a vested interest in. For instance if you were advertising a specific crypto coin that you had invested in that would be completely different scenario. You are not directly profiting off the well being of others

Owning something can mean a lot of things: it can mean the right to distribute, the right to exclusive use, or the right to distribute. Owning an NFT doesn't fit into any of those definitions, you just "own it". To be fair, there can be some value to that, I like the satisfaction I get when commissioning art, supporting artists is great HOWEVER that is not transferrable, it only matters who makes the original purchase for that, the whole point of NFTs is to create transferrable digital assets, but there's nothing to transfer except prestige and status. You can compare it to physical paintings which do kinda serve the same purpose, which I don't really see the value in buying either, but there is some justification in owning the truest depiction of the artist's work, but for digital works perfect copies exist so it doesn't even have that value. There are some uses popping which kinda make more sense like memberships to an exclusive club or something, where there is an actual value (although its really just a novelty at the moment) but the vast majority of NFTs have no value beyond pure prestige and status. Maybe in the future there will be actual value attached, but there certainly isn't at the moment.

There is definitely, in my opinion a difference between collectables, like video game boxes compared to nfts. These boxes hold value on their own being video games and cultural value because of their history and probably sentimental value. A person could be a collector and not even want to sell their boxes in the future because they just appreciate this thing they have. Nfts sole purpose is to be resold to make money off of it. It is not about the art or the community or having a free market or any of the B's people may spout, it's about not being to the last person holding the board monkey and walking away with a profit. And the super rich are just advertising it so that regular people can put money into crypto. And crypto in itself I think is an issue and while yes I would say taking these sponsors is good cause people can just not buy what you are advertising, but it is true that advertisment works and there will be many that go into nfts and crypto and lose money. Overall it's just disgusting seeing how much money is being put into advertisment so that crypto and nfts stay afloat.

You "seem to give opportunities to people, reaching out to your viewer base for actual ability and also work on occasion.

It’s all a display of wealth really, but at least you acknowledge it and have the conscience to ask whether that’s the right thing to do. At the end of the day it’s your choice whether you trust your viewers to be sceptical of the products that they see and understand that you only do it to provide them entertainment. As for the Pokémon cards, your viewers enjoy that sort of thing, it’s a piece of pop culture that is inaccessible to most and you’re entertaining them by giving them a look at it. Although pop culture shouldn’t be gate kept and supply and demand is kinda cringe it’s sadly how things are at the moment. You’re just providing content that people enjoy to them so don’t get too worked up about that aspect. Love your honesty and the recent vids and streams ❤️

@Puzzle Box nah because advertising an app to trade crypto because they pay you is different than actually advertising nfts which you're just trying to get rid of before the value drops out. Ideally you should do neither but I get that things like the podcast and shows he puts on himself need sponsors to make them viable. Although I might just feel this way because I'd personally never get into that shit

I think that when you are promoting NFTs or cryto currency, you are pretty much doing the same as promoting gambling. The problem is the only way for NFTs or crypto currency to generate profit is for the bigger fool to buy in. Personally, I do think this wrong because the people who are going to be the most effected are the people who listened to their idols/heroes who are also promoting their own NFTs. It's taking advantage of fans who put their trust into someone without realizing it's a scam. Most people don't understand NFTs or crypto so it's super easy to take advantage of them. Once this scam bursts, it won't be because people realize it's a scam, but because eventually the idols/heroes promoting them have stopped (because they sold it for profit). I have some really stupid people in my family who will gamble even when they can't afford it. I know it'll be their own fault once they lose out but I also have to put blame on the many who are promoting it now.

I mean there's just so many shady things going on with celebrities' involvement in NFTs. Eva Longoria, Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon all posted NFTs by the same artists at almost the exact same time (like within an hour), and then Brie Larson followed a few hours later. The money Justin Bieber used to purchase his NFT came from the money the co-founder of one of his brands made through an NFT collection and only half the money Bieber was transferred got used and the rest is sitting in his wallet still. And on top of all of this a bunch of these celebrities have the same agency which, shocker, is currently investing in NFTs! Plus artists of all kinds are getting their work stolen left and right to make NFTs. It's all just one big rich people scam.
