I’m getting sick of “lol gold and NFTs are equivalent cause we assign value to them durr” argument that these smooth brained fucks use to justify their environmentally disastrous money laundering scheme.
Gold is a physical commodity. It has actual uses in fashion, collection, electronics, industrial components, chemistry, and other such things. It can be stockpiled, it requires workers, from retailers to artisans to generate its value.
An NFT is a fucking useless peice of pixels with no inherent value.
