There is much critical writing about NFTs, analyzing the environmental problems especially with the current “proof of work” system as opposed to the “proof of stake” promised for the forthcoming Ethereum 2.0, as discussed in the Salon. More details and information are available. Please see the attached for articles and links about NFT’s including things referred to in the Salon, some things not referred to, and articles referenced in the chat. I hope these are of interest – please feel free to contact me with any more information or additional articles.
