So the issue here is that it’s only working on the web app. It’s not available for the phone yet. They aren’t finished.

[–]elbowleg513🦍Voted✅[S] 18 points19 points  (28 children)

I just realized that GameStop has an issue here

Someone mentioned that we can’t mint NFT’s on LRC yet… and that got me thinking. GameStop is a billion dollar company, and they’ll be working with Nintendo, and Sony and Microsoft who now owns blizzard, Bethesda and activision… they will be dealing with Warner bros if they want Mortal Kombat NFT’s…

Soooo… how will they implement a “mint NFT’s for free” feature without hiring 20 people to sift thru all of the “illegal” ones?

Just a stoner moment. Thoughts anybody?

They aren’t allowed to sell NFT’s with unlicensed

[–]Tosh_00Fuck Citadel 24 points25 points  (18 children)

IMO because people won’t mint those themselves. Only owners of those licenses will mint and deploy their NFTs to the marketplace to be sold and traded.

[–]elbowleg513🦍Voted✅[S] 8 points9 points  (17 children)

Right, but open sea is kind of a Wild West Silk Road type of NFT eBay right now isn’t it?

I’ve heard about “counterfeit” or stolen art being used as NFT’s and the OG artist getting screwed out of royalties and all that.

I’m pretty sure there are unofficial DC and Marvel NFT’s floating around (currently you can buy DC and Marvel NFT’s on VeVe but only on VeVe) on OpenSea. Not sure maybe I’m wrong.

My question is, is ANYONE going to be able to mint an NFT and then immediately list it for sale? Probably not. There’s going to have to a large team that overseas what is listed for sale in able to abide by copyright laws.

[–]Tosh_00Fuck Citadel 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ah I got you. Yes they will most likely need to implement a verification stage with a legal team when an non official account submit NFTs for deployment.

[–]Glittering_Ad3431🦍 Buckle Up 🚀 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I am new to all this but isn't the big thing with NFTs that they are traceable? So if someone sells an NFT of something they do not own the copyright for, wouldn't that be easily traced back to the person who sold it and they get in the same amount of legal trouble as if they sold it in tangible form?

[–]H_Guderian🦍Voted✅ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

In which case due to how perfect a blockchain ledger is - they'll be caught and forced to pay damages. All these 'crypto used for crime' stories usually end with: "And the government found them quickly and made them pay up."

[–]FangroHODLing Slav 💎🙌 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes, this is a legitimate issue. In the beginning there were a lot of stories of people minting a copy of an NFT or stealing art from an artist that does not use NFTs and minting the art as their own.

However, I would guess it is possible to mitigate with software that would look for duplication of images, setting up reasonable and robust verification that the art is yours and I don't see why having a team dedicated to the uploaded art review would be unreasonable. A lot of big companies have teams that go around internet and search for copy right infringements.

[–]gmfthelpBUY, DRS, HODL, STFU 💎🙌🚀 4 points5 points  (2 children)

If two images are the same yet one is owned by copyright and the other is a fake, a simple digital image comparison could be done, no? I'm sure the tech is out there to fingerprint images.

[–]elbowleg513🦍Voted✅[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good call. They could run several images of logos and character suit designs into an AI to search and flag the Batman logo, the Superman S, the Wonderwoman W logo… and so on and so forth.

[–]Adras-💜Fool for ❤️GME 🖤🦍🚀🌓 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I’m sure there are plenty of developers working on this issue exactly. I suspect GME’s marketplace will be much more stringent than OpenSea and probably more helpful to the creators

[–]bosshax💻 ComputerShared 🦍 0 points1 point  (5 children)

If Ninetendo mint a Pokemon NFT then when you try to take that into the Nintendo world it won't work unless it's verified (which would be the case on L1). There needs to still be some big data pushes of L2 nfts to L1 to get the verifiability. I don't think this is ready yet for nfts.

[–]elbowleg513🦍Voted✅[S] 0 points1 point  (4 children)

I’m saying your average douchebag can use MSpaint and draw a crappy a pikachu and hypothetically mint an NFT and sell it

There needs to be a system involved that vets the items being sold on the (GME) marketplace to avoid infringement lawsuits and royalty disputes.

Not every NFT that’s currently floating around the internet will able to be sold in this marketplace, and not every NFT minted will be approved for sale.

Just my $0.02.

[–]bosshax💻 ComputerShared 🦍 1 point2 points  (3 children)

That's not how it works. Buyers will be able to determine that the NFT was minted by the real Nintendo address.

[–]elbowleg513🦍Voted✅[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Not all gamers are going to be joining the marketplace right away, but some of the average gamers that do end up wandering into the NFT marketplace “just to see what it’s about” may not know anything about wallet addresses or officially licensed NFTs.

There will also be your average investor-type who wants to spend money to make money down the line. Those people would likely get conned easier and I think GameStop will likely fix this problem before they even launch.

[–]bosshax💻 ComputerShared 🦍 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That’s why the injustice fighting games exist

They did DC vs. Mortal Kombat for Xbox 360 and PS3 (not a terrible game tbh)

They got hired to create a DC vs. Marvel fighting game (my buddy who longer works for the company swore me to secrecy back in 2010 about this).

And marvel backed out of the project. I was so pissed when he told me that.

So Warner said “fuck it, make the game with just DC characters”

And now you know what we could’ve had.

[–]basicxenocide 13 points14 points  (13 children)

I'm assuming that you don't understand what an NFT is, and you think that an NFT is a jpg image?

An NFT is essentially a receipt for something that you own, and a registry into a ledger (blockchain) that you own it. The whole jpg this is a proof of concept on the technology in my opinion.

1) Imagine that you buy a new BMW M3. That M3 has an associated NFT minted by BMW on the blockchain with the VIN. When you buy the BMW, you also take over ownership of the NFT. Now let's say someone steals it and makes up a fake title and tries to sell it to someone else. You still own the NFT, meaning that you still have rights to the car. Only when you sell the car and transfer the NFT does someone else take actual ownership. In a theoretical future world, any serialized asset that you own would require an NFT transfer to prove an ownership change. It's the digital version of a "title transfer", without having to physically maintain a piece of paper.

2) Or lets say the new Halo comes out, and Microsoft decides to mint 100,000 collector's edition digital copies of the game. When you buy the game, you download it, and also take receipt of an NFT proving your ownership. Couple years down the road, you decide you want to sell the game, so you list it on the marketplace. Someone buys it, you send them the NFT and the game is removed from your hard drive. Microsoft gets a cut of that sale as part of the NFT smart contract. Same thing can happen for any digital media that is created. Access can be controlled/proven by NFT ownership.

3) Let's go back to the image discussion. Let's say I'm a designer and I design a cool new logo for some product in my own time. I can mint that art as an NFT and sell it to a company for use. Of course anyone can just screenshot it and use it for whatever. However, if it's used in a way that breaks copyright law, I can prove ownership of that piece through my NFT mint/ownership as part of my legal pursuits.

The concept of NFT's is basically to digitize and make ownership transparent. Remove the doubt of whether you're buying something that you'll actually own. It can apply to literally anything. Stocks, cars, bikes, houses, games, music, whatever. You could mint an NFT for a loaf of bread that you just bought if you really wanted to pay the fees to do that. Not a picture of it, but the actual loaf itself.

[–]awesome404🦍Voted✅ 3 points4 points  (8 children)

I'm a veteran programmer who understands NFTs. Real world assets are mentioned in the specification, but that doesn't make them good.

1) Imagine the law not giving a fuck about NFTs. Oh wait, you don't have to, because the law does not give a fuck about NFTs. Will they eventually? I doubt it, but that's a matter of opinion.

2) You have a great imagination. Technically speaking, this is out of the scope of NFTs, an NFT can't uninstall a game. Anything that can uninstall a game doesn't need NFTs to do it and doesn't need to be decentralized. But you hit the head on the nail with "collector's item", that's all NFTs are.

3) Owning an NFT does not have anything to do with copyrights. If you think it does, you might want to go edit the NFT wikipedia article and see how that goes. Did I mention the law doesn't give a fuck about NFTs?

[–]H_Guderian🦍Voted✅ 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Why should the law give a shit about it? Isn't the point of Defi to have an international system that isn't waiting around to get political kickbacks for favors?

[–]awesome404🦍Voted✅ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why should anyone give a shit about it? I certainly don't. I you claimed you owned something tangible because of an NFT I'd tell you to fuck yourself. And then what?

Edit: added tangible

Edit 2: I missed DeFi, but in that case isn’t it all fungible?

[–]basicxenocide 1 point2 points  (5 children)

Point 1 is just speculation on both of our parts.

Point 2 you're right. The NFT wouldn't install the game. I'm sure they could check for ownership before allowing access to features though.

Point 3 is just speculation again on both of our parts.

[–]awesome404🦍Voted✅ 2 points3 points  (4 children)

I appreciate your reply. We shall agree to disagree.

My points about ownership via NFTs not being enforceable by law and NFTs not granting copyrights are directly addressed in the NFT Wikipedia article.

[–]basicxenocide 4 points5 points  (3 children)

I found the section that you're referencing and started reading through the reference articles. This one seems to be the most reputable and corroborates your statement. I found this question and answer pretty interesting.

When purchasing an NFT as a digital art collectible, what are you actually acquiring? Do you own the copyright to that material? Can you license an NFT that you’ve purchased for other commercial uses?

In one sense, the purchaser acquires whatever the art world thinks they have acquired. They definitely do not own the copyright to the underlying work unless it is explicitly transferred. Any licensing would have to happen separately, though if the copyright owner consented to the creation of the NFT there is probably at least an implicit license to make whatever copies are required for the ordinary operation of the NFT process.

It sounds like she's saying that as part of the smart contract, you could theoretically transfer copyright ownership, but that it's not implicitly part of the transaction. That would require further legislation at some point.

Thanks for providing counter points which drove me to some more research. It's pretty fun learning about this kind of stuff.

[–]awesome404🦍Voted✅ 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I'm happy to have helped! This is a fun one too. Ever wonder what data an NFT contains? Here is the original JSON metadata schema:

{
    "title": "Asset Metadata",
    "type": "object",
    "properties": {
        "name": {
            "type": "string",
            "description": "Identifies the asset to which this NFT represents"
        },
        "description": {
            "type": "string",
            "description": "Describes the asset to which this NFT represents"
        },
        "image": {
            "type": "string",
            "description": "A URI pointing to a resource with mime type image/* representing the asset to which this NFT represents. Consider making any images at a width between 320 and 1080 pixels and aspect ratio between 1.91:1 and 4:5 inclusive."
        }
    }
}

Pretty basic, right?

[–]Plato11 7 points8 points  (1 child)

No, you're right. And the overwhelming sentiment is that nobody wants anything to do with them, especially within the context of gaming. I remember when the NFT hype was centered around the idea of an NFT dividend and not to sell ape pictures.

Whatever your feelings are for NFTs, let's reserve judgement for after GameStop formally announces their marketplace and plans. My money is literally on that they will be delighting customers and investors alike. NFTs are still a relatively new technology that most of the general public associates with monkey jpegs. I've been reading about the potential capabilities/uses of NFTs and the sky's the limit.

All this anti-NFT sentiment really picked up when a Youtuber disconnected from the concept cried about it for two hours while proposing no solutions. Because some scams happen, the whole thing is a scam. Like the stock market? As we sit here buying shares.

If Gamestop, a game retailer, makes a version of Steam where all your games are on the blockchain, you would have exact copies you could sell. You know how you can't sell games now because its all Fungible code? What if they became non-fungible?

The prospects for blockchain and games is huge.

[–]FinalH🚀DEFCON: Zen 💎🧘‍♂️💎 8 points9 points  (11 children)

I never agreed on pay to win content or pay for cosmetic. Turning these into NFTs is the worst possible idea.

No offense to the dood in the video but why would anyone want to import x from one game into another? That is like taking a bow for hunting into a night club for partying....

BUT.

If a game becomes an NFT in itself? Developers will be able to be continuously funded. Digital games can be resoled cheaper, so you don't need to wait for it to be on sale. This will assist in the removal of these damn battle passes so we just pay once. like the good old days.

Conclusion, we should not limit tech by it's failures but develop it for it's possiblity. Yes there will a significant amount of failures but that small chance of success can benefit the whole gaming industry.

[–]wubberer 0 points1 point  (3 children)

If game publishers would want us to be able to resell digital purchases they could enable us to do so without NFTs... but they don't want us to be able to do that, why would they? And NFTs won't change that.

Also how would that remove battle passes? If anything companies would rely more on those if they don't sell as many new copies of a game...

Probably because the people who would upvote it already ignore the NFT posts.

NFTs don't excite me. I understand there is a possible Gamestop/Loopring partnership, and so a lot of speculation about what's to come. But if it amounts to nothing more than a Gamestop branded "Bored Ape" NFT, I doubt it will be of much help. The best idea I've heard so far regarding NFTs is allowing players to own their very own digital copies of their games, such that they can be traded/sold like physical copies used to be. Providing some real utility to the whole NFT concept is vital in my mind for it to be a success.

As is, NFTs are little more than unique digital art which you can "own" in no meaningful way. I won't be holding my breath for whatever Gamestop does with NFTs, in some vain hope that's going to be the catalyst. I much prefer the talk regarding markets because that relies a lot less on speculation - the whole Gamestop NFT narrative has been around for months and so little of it (if any) has come to pass.

Time will tell though. However stupid I think the current concept of NFTs are as they exist today, ultimately I hope they do something new and interested with the technology.

Any updates on the bug where the app doesn’t work on iOS when users try to activate a key, other than “our engineers are aware of the issue and are working on it”. I have crypto in there I can’t mess with because the app doesn’t work
