Got to regret minting this babe early on: [https://foundation.app/0xa8b484814de1cc58f89fce9d4490405dac1e2cd5/the-dreamlings-swing-3428](https://foundation.app/0xa8b484814de1cc58f89fce9d4490405dac1e2cd5/the-dreamlings-swing-3428) “The only viable option is total moral rejection. There is no “my rig is solar” or “we plant a tree for every coin” or “we’re moving to proof of stake” or “we have a bounty for a less devastating NFT” or “my smart contract is a viable alternative”. This is liberalism at its finest- a reformist attitude that thinks if we can just fix the worst problems- remove the bad apples- get some better regulatory structures in place- then the system might just work rather than internalizing that a system based on fundamentally broken, greedy, hyper-capitalist models is one that will always produce harm.”

To all of those who are writing about the environmental impacts of crypto art and NFT's: If you look at where the technology is going, there is very little environmental impact to "crypto art" if you use the right platform. I completely respect Everest and others writing about the problems of using the Proof of Work based blockchain. However there are plenty of platforms that use Proof of Stake which does not involve crypto mining on GPU's. It takes no more energy than to post on facebook. PoS crypto has an interesting space to explore outside of capitalist aspirations. The Stellar blockchain and Harmony blockchain are both excellent places to begin exploring NFTs without relying on environmentally impactful practices. In other words, the technology is super interesting and SHOULD have artists exploring the boundaries of this form, not just tech bros.

The article makes a lot of great points and not just about NFT. It describes the very nature of any currency! Take USD, gold or cigarettes: Everything is only worth what you need to waste in order to produce it and keep producing it. This waste can be electricity or carrots eaten while working on a farm. What is called "wasted energy" here is called "productivity" for other currencies.

Cryptoart is a piece of metadata (including, generally- an image or link to an image/file, the creator of that file, datestamps, associated contracts or text, and the purchaser of the piece) which is attached to a “token” (which has monetary value on a marketplace) and stored in a blockchain.
