Cryptocurrency bollocks, NFTs 

Really disappointing to see NFTs starting to look increasingly mainstream. Still hoping they're going to be a brief fad.

Like a few years back when I saw flat earth protesters in the street and thought "wow, that's really where we are now", the whole cryptocurrency space is just one asinine, environment-destroying, thinly-veiled scam after another and I can't believe it's still being taken seriously
