A soccer team in the UK (Everton) have just started selling NFTs.

They advertise it by saying you can 'wear your digital shirt' but they neglect to say how that is remotely possible.

sh*t is a scam, always has been. I have yet to see a single good use for this technology that isn't just Ponzi scheme bullsh*t.

There are actually some interesting practical uses for NFTs as far as digital rights goes. Blockchain technology has been overshadowed by the money making scams which is sad, because the tech itself is really interesting, albeit imperfect.

When it comes to visual arts/collectibles they’re completely useless though lol

But for other mediums, such as music/video there are some interesting applications.

There needs to be actual rights attached to the token in order to make it useful, otherwise it’s literally just owning an icon/collectible in a fledgling and fickle collector’s community that could implode at any second (which we’re seeing right now lol)

“Stoner Cats” (I think that’s what it was called) was one interesting application (not as ying the show itself should be successful, but the rights conferred upon purchasing an NFT were really interesting). They’re also valuable for content creators as a way to tamp down on piracy and cut out middle men who take their money. So it’s a good distribution tool in that sense.

Sadly, all of this has been overshadowed by the stupid scams that NFTs have been used for which strictly involve the graphic arts/digital collectibles and is currently imploding lol

But yeah there’s definitely some practical uses for NFTs, you just have to actually understand how they work (and a little bit of fundamental property law theory)

I dont get why people are against NFTs in gaming... Sounds like it makes the value of digital items go up.

That's exactly why. People don't want to give game companies any more reason to jack up the price of DLC/digital content.

Realistically there isn't much that NFT infrastructure could do in the gaming space that isn't already being done with conventional methods.

They could be used by indie devs to fund projects, but honestly that would probably just overcomplicate the entire thing.

Really all NFTs would do is (ironically enough) create a centralized secondary market for digital content which would probably wind up driving up the average price of digital content offered by studios.

If it makes it east for me to trade digital items then I want it I don't pay for skins but if I get a rare skin I'd love for it to have value that can be traded.

It's the people who constantly pay for digital items that are the problem...

This is possible and is being done right now, without NFTs.

It’s a double edged sword honestly little implementations are cool but it’s only a matter of time before one company becomes successful then other companies follow suit. Gamers are already getting entice to buy Microtransactions in games now they are basically double dipping but Sony practices that a lot with their delayed $70 PC releases.

The thing with NFTs is that it would be able to occur in-game but yeah ultimately it'd be no different than things like dmarket or tradeit

it would make trading characters easier though since you wouldn't have to give up your entire account.

end of the day though, it just wouldn't be worth the cost of implementation. Developing a blockchain and adding it to your game just so players can trade items a little more easily doesn't really provide any real benefit to the devs.

You can sell items right now on the Steam market.

What difference would it make for it to be in-game?

very little for those who use Steam, but a lot more for console users, which I think this thread is primarily focused on.

I'm not really arguing that they'd be useful, just explaining what little utility they would have since a lot of folks hear "NFT" or "blockchain" and immeidately think of the various ponzi schemes that are conducted with this technology and not the technology itself.

There's probably some more interesting applications that I'm not clever enough to come up with that go beyond digital currency/item ownership. Probably something that'd be more akin to a season pass, but again, we already have season passes lol so I'm not sure what use it would have.

Non of these a**holes where forced to spend on my player characters, the gamers are at fault for spending on play 2 win games.

Issue is gaming companies are already incentivized to make money off of microtransactions so lets make things easier

I'll give you props and I can admit you're one of the smartest people on this website so I won't bundle you in with the rest of the Crypto Cult, but you're wrong about Crypto.


Blockchains, Crypto, and ESPECIALLY NFTs are 100000% worthless and some of the dumbest tech ideas ever created. There's ZERO practical use for any of this bullsh*t.

Straight up selling yall Digital Snake Oil like the dude from Red Dead Redemption

You right but Microtransactions didn’t hit like this 10 years ago. I know Giesha impact made millions.. I wouldn’t want to buy a game with most of the game modes hidden behind having a certain NFT.

This isn't PS Stars related(although it points to the fact Sony is messing around with NFTs).
