    Gaming in your 40s

    My 3 year old son played a little bit of Geometry Dash the other day. Oh the joy a small child gets from hitting the same spikes 5 seconds into the level over and over again. I'm a little but jealous of fascination and interest in just well, everything. Me on the other hand at 35 now - I find...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    Things have been misleading for a while now because most of the reviews out there are "stock vs stock" and tend to ignore things like power draw (although they are reported). The TDP jumped pretty massively from the 2080Ti to the 3090. When both are operating at about the same power draw (let's...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070: up to 30% faster than RTX 3090 in gaming

    I think we've about hit the peak of what humanity is capable of when it comes to high end silicon based computer hardware. CPU performance has stagnated for quite some time now - it's actually kind of sad how little its progressed since Sandy Bridge, and now we're only going to see a 25%...

    We all need a little more of this in our lives. NFT Market Collapses Just As Square Enix Sells Tomb Raider To Bet Big On Blockchain

    I'm glad you didn't invest in NFTs to have crashed in value. I've also never suggested anyone invest in any NFTs, in this thread, or any where on this forum, ever. My statement of ignorance refers to the short sighted view, narrow-minded thinking, or just trying to be a part of the mob to cope...

    They're called hardware wallets. Unless someone breaks into your home and forces you to plug your in hardware wallet at gunpoint and force you to confirm your transaction through that wallet, no one can steal your NFTs or crypto. You can fully remote hijack my computer. You can even full on...

    You'll hate your own ignorance reading back on this in a few years, that's all I can say. And yes, if you're holding a NFT of the Mona Lisa that was minted by a trusted tokenizer that's been audited because they're a legitimate business that resides in a country like the US, then of course of...

    It's call foresight - but as I said earlier, I expect the mob to hindsight cope again in a few years (by the time it has been battle tested) by calling this use case a useless ponzi-scheme that offers nothing to humanity, as usual. I also haven't told anyone to invest anything either. I...

    I know that digital is mostly pointless. We just finished the jpeg NFT phase, and as pointless as owning a jpeg is: NFTs proved one solid use case: ownership. Now add in physical items where ownership actually has meaning, and huge trusted (or audited) entities to provide the onramp and offramps...

    And... RM Sotheby's is actually using NFTs too. https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pf22 It's only a matter of time before they full on start releasing physical, and likely fractional, NFTs. Even in the description I linked, they are included signed physical prints (maybe serving as a testing...

    The authentication process is done one time, up front. From that point it can exchange hands an infinite number of times without the original issuer having to do anything (including not having to maintain any of their own internal databases tracking who owns it, where it is, etc). And buyers and...

    Nothing offers maximum (and secure) liquidity for buyer and seller of not just "money", but also tokens that can pretty much represent anything (NFTs) the way an established blockchain does. Why is this so hard for some of you to understand? Go setup a competing network with one of your proven...

    I'm not in the Pokémon card business, but a quick search shows me the 1st Edition or whatever the top-tier card is (there are a few versions of Charizard) fetch $200-$300K.

    Who I am going to trust? A random like you - or established huge corporations like Masterworks (that are audited) to handle the minting? Do you shop at random websites you've never heard of? That kind of be like the equivalent of buying a physical NFT minted by a random such as yourself.

    If the random holding the NFT sells you the NFT minted by the original entity, your guarantee is through that entity. The random can also try to sell you a "fake NFT" that he minted that looks like the one minted by the original entity, except any fakes will have always have contract address...

    Pretty much this. Take Masterworks secondary market and replace it with something like Ethereum. What the NFT enables is the ability to exchange with the entire world. It increases the liquidity of the underlying asset ten-fold if not more because the NFT can be traded directly to anyone on that...
