(ie: Once you admit publicly that programming itself is not actually that hard and the interesting / difficult part of it is actually about figuring out relations with and models of the world, you're both bound to a responsibility in how you make things and what you choose to make, and you can also kiss goodbye to those sweet overinflated day rates)

The NFT market rusting out is obviously already pretty upsetting for those that have invested heavily in it, in one way or another. But wait until the platforms and their centralised and entirely privately owned servers start shutting down - which will happen - proof of 'ownership' disappearing with them.

There'll be crowdfunding attempts to keep them up and running, but doubtful that'll get far, esp as the global economy hits a pandemic and war-induced downturn.
