Here's a pretty good descriptive article. https://www.wired.com/story/nfts-boo...ll-out-crypto/

So one could conceivable "disassemble" the digital art and sell off the NFT that it is comprised of? Is that my understanding?
I guess that, depending on the actual token, it could be piecemealed off but I don't think that's the idea. I think that ownership of the token is the idea.

Big NFT event this week at the above. Free.

I own $MANA , which is the token for decentraland.

I'm thinking about buying this NFT gallery next to a University.

I would run it much like real gallery, and do shows of up and coming artists. It's about 9500 $MANA , which is trading on Coinbase at .95 cents, $MANA Is up 127% last 30 days. It was .35 a month ago

Coinbase just reported 56 million users, $335 billion in trading volume, and $1.8 billion in revenue for Q1.

What an absolute beast of a company.

Their shares are going live on Nasdaq , April 14th. Very soon.

It's a direct listing, no bankers.

not that insider action means that much, but MUX just had the CFO purchase 20,000 shares @ $1.03. he is supposed to know better than anyone the financial health of the company that he runs. -

Argentina, Chile tunnel project

this has been going on since 2014, so far Argentina has signed off, but Chile hasn't yet... this is one fundamental reason why MUX price is being held down... there is plenty of copper there. if this thing ever gets done look out above... it would probably take about 10 years to build this tunnel though!

Any status on this tunnel? I can't find anything on the status of it after Aug 2019, when both countries were still squabbling over it. I can't find any articles that it's being built presently.

the only thing i know is that China is putting pressure on Chile to build the road... it could take up to 10 years to get it done though... getting that road done is enough to get MUX up to $20 or more per share from $1.00.

McEwen mining corp. is a 50% partner in the project. this is the largest open pit copper project in the world today.

1000 ounce silver bars

the premiums for this product is starting to fly... i see them now for $3750 premium on something that used to be $500 premium not that long ago..

one ounce silver coin premiums are at least double the 1000 ounce bars. US Eagles are more.

the trick in moving the price of precious metals has always been to flood the market with plenty of product. this time around there is hardly any product to put your hands on so they can flood the market buy shorting gold and silver ETF's. that's a great way to do it until physical orders don't get filled. i believe we are getting very close to that. the ETF's have rules where they have to own a big percentage of physical to back their open interest. when the same shares get borrowed and re borrowed there is no way they buy physical to back the over extended paper shares that they didn't issue.

$2 trillion market cap for bit coin now

i know absolutely nothing about cryto currencies. what i am learning is that 65% if all crypto's are being mined in China, another 15% is being mined by friends of China.

while the market cap is low when you compare it to Gold. but it could surpass it with further demand.

i don't think its a safe investment when a country like China controls the investment. in any type of investing there is no such thing as "safe". but to me this one looks ultra risky.
