Is Mark Zuckerberg the con artist behind the ongoing NFTs Ponzi scheme?

We cover Capital & Celeb News within the sections Markets, Business, Showbiz, Gaming, and Sports. Read our latest stories including opinions here. What NFTs are right now is the digital equivalent of an autograph. I think buying a hat autographed by LeBron James is stupid, but obviously a lot of people disagree. However, theoretically, you could tokenize other assets, like real estate, or intellectual property, and then trade them in a more liquid, global manner than is currently possible. Yes, like a Ponzi scheme or MLM for example. That's literally a web of trust setup to defraud people and one that often relies on pre-existing trusted relationships to spread. Almost all crimes involving social engineering like fraud are going to involve exploiting webs of trust. yeah, it's funny considering that "No Ethical Activism Under Capitalism" is modeled after the slogan "No Ethical Consumption Under Capitalism" frequently wielded by marxists against anarchists they consider lifestylists, or against vegans. but here they change it up and use it to nag at anarchists for not being their particular brand of lifestylist and activism. sure, in typical radlib fashion ...

2022.01.23 22:04 MichioBu Is Mark Zuckerberg the con artist behind the ongoing NFTs Ponzi scheme?

Are Mark Zuckerberg and other bosses of big technological companies, behind the ongoing global-scale Ponzi scheme involving NFTs and the belief that you will become very rich, if you use cryptocurrencies, NFTs, and use real money to buy virtual lands in Metaverses?
After all, didn’t the ongoing madness begin right after Mark Zuckerberg announced his Metaverse project months ago?
If you check keywords like “NFT” and “Metaverse” in Google Trends, you will see the exponential rise in popularity of NFT and Metaverse in the exact same time period when the Metaverse project was involved. The sudden popularity of NFTs, cryptocurrencies and Metaverses began to surge at the same moment when Mark Zuckerberg announced the Metaverse project. The aggressive media promotion of the things I mentioned began, too, at the same moment the Metaverse was announced.
What is the purpose of buying NFTs, which are links to images or songs you don't get copyrights of, nor do you own them?
According to this video: buying NFTs is as meaningless at is it possible to be... So, why would someone buy NFTs?
I don't understand anything... I really, really need someone to explain the ongoing Ponzi scheme to me, because i can't grasp it, I can't understand it. I feel very stupid because I'm unable to understand something other people already understood.

2022.01.23 22:04 jessicablondet 24 [F4M] Giving this a shot to see what is out there [Chat]

I'm not sure if my post will appeal to a wide variety of guys. I'm just hoping it will appeal to the right variety.
Do you want something real for a change instead of similarly posted advertisements that are as shallow as the murky waters of your local wetlands?
I'm more old fashioned and ladylike than I care to admit, given the wonderful progress gender equality has brought us.
Wholesome. I practice kindness daily. If I can make someone’s day with an action that helps them in some way, that will fuel me for weeks.
Lover of beer, wine, books, movies, whiskey, dense forests, rays of sunshine through foggy grey mists, pub, walks, cafes and bookshops and as any girl, I love make up. I work fulltime as a stylist at a hair salon.
I shall lavish you with high quality whiskey (or wine?) and books I think you might like on spontaneous whims.
I'm also single!
I'm slim. 5'3 or so, blondie, blue eyes. I'm very busty. I don't say that to brag or draw attention, but just to get it out of the way if you ever see me.
I don’t need or really want for much. Time to spend together and apart, as we are both independent (but monogamous and committed to one another).
I’m a strong, but quiet individual. Fairly shy. Passive and patient, until pushed too hard. Don’t mind cold weather or the rain. I love movies (all types) probably more than I love myself. I'm also a huge Disney fan and can have long conversations about any of their movies. Not hugely aspirational with my career, but a strong work ethic and make a decent living, and my life outside of work is much more important to me than how I earn money.
As for sports, I played soccer back in high school and I still like to watch soccer to this day, although I no longer play. I don't have a favourite team or anything. When I do watch it's usually Premier League or something else from Europe. I also like watching basketball. I don't play, but I'm a Raptors fan and I love to watch.
Also, I enjoy working out and jogging. I use weight machines and like use the elliptical for cardio, but right now with gyms all closed where I live I mostly try to jog. It's hard when the weather sucks, though.
I hope to hear from you. Let's be friends! :)

2022.01.23 22:04 Dry-Housing-9765 Lost Colony origin might be a B or A tier origin in 3.3 (beta patch). The best tall capital?

The beta patch adds planet tiers which buff stats. Capitals start with 10%.
Colonial Spirit (buff on your lost colony 'homeworld')-> 15% output Empire Capital -> 10% output (20% after the planet upgrades)
Ecumenpolis -> 15%
That gives you a planet with 45% output. This could be as much as 800 research and a lot of Alloys and Consumer goods.

2022.01.23 22:04 robber3572 Odd behavior when frame rate matching (TCL Roku TV)

I have a TCL Roku TV (65R615) with a soundbar connected to HDMI 3. The soundbar has an Apple TV 4K and an Nvidia Shield plugged into it. Over the course of the last month or so, since the TV updated to 10.5 build 4210, whenever the Apple TV activates frame rate matching, the TV goes to black for a moment then it shows a TCL/Roku screen with the source picture (soundbar) then back to black then the actual video content. Does anyone know why this is happening? Before it would just show a black screen for a second or two indicating it was switching frame rates. When I manually activate frame rate matching on the Nvidia Shield, I just get a brief black screen. The same goes if I remove the Apple TV from the soundbar and plug it into HDMI 2. Obviously, if I turn off frame rate matching on the Apple TV, the screen doesn’t do anything.
Is anyone else experiencing similar? Did something change in Roku OS 10.5 that would cause this?

So I was just looking at a Whiterun guard when suddenly I get hit with a 5 coin bounty.
I was confused and fought my way out of Whiterun.
Eventually, I stumbled upon Solitude where I noticed something strange.
My follower went to the nearby market and stole something right before everyone's eyes and I got another bounty.
Lmao, my follower keeps making me wanted everywhere I go!

2022.01.23 22:04 kevysaysbenice Is there a chance that this 50# bag contains wollastonite?
So I picked up my first order of glaze making materials and when I got home I realized that I didn't see a bag clearly marked "wollastonite" - rather I have this bag marked "unground glaze"
Whatever this bag is, there is silica in it, which I believe is also in wollastonite, but I'm not sure if the bag is just a generic Laguna bag, or if "unground glaze" is a substitute or alternative name, etc. I have of course googled but didn't find anything that gave me an answer really.
I'll call the supply place I purchased from tomorrow, but would love to get your opinions!!
Thanks as always!

2022.01.23 22:04 PiplupPeanut Is chocobo breeding worth it?

I believe I’m almost done with OG FF7 but before I go to Midgar after fighting Diamond Weapon, I thought I’d look into chocobo breeding. As far as I know the main point of chocobo breeding is getting items in otherwise unreachable areas, right? Because if that’s all and it doesn’t block off any extra story stuff then I thought I could just continue with the game, as I haven’t ran into too many challenges that require top tier equipment (…though I still haven’t gotten through the sunken gelnika).
So would y’all say that in the OG game chocobo breeding is an absolutely important part of the experience, or can it easily be skipped for people who care more about the story?

2022.01.23 22:04 Average-ThrowerZz to kick things off

to kick things off the suggested wage is 27$/hour, accounting for inflation. Though many of the average retail and fast food chains offer near, or below ~10$/hour. this I find extremely troubling, as the company puts themselves before the wellbeing of their employees. these companies priority is to make a massive profit, at the expense of their employees. the interesting thing is these companies make hundreds of millions in profit, yet can't even fork over a measly 20 an hour. to put this into perspective Jeff Bezos makes $3,715 per second, which is ludicrous, yet the wages at amazon are ~11 dollars, absolutely hideous. many of these companies also don't provide healthcare benefits which is also a huge issue. now i've stated my take i'll hand the mic over to someone else
