As a consequence, the voices of NFT faultfinders are getting louder as the web3 industry gets demonized for all its shortcomings. Unfortunately, the famous and successful actor-comedian we all know happens to be a little late to hop on the metaverse bandwagon.

Since then, the evolution of NFTs has been unstoppable, inspiring multiple artists, brands, and organizations to experiment with new ways to interact with their fans, audience, and customers. But in the middle of the craze, one of the most important topics emerged: COPYRIGHT LAW. UPDATE: Included Galaxy Digital’s criticisms on the current status quo of IP license…

People who use the web interact with the Internet Protocol (IP) address, a unique number series that allows web providers to distribute content across the globe. Think of it as the medium for computers to communicate, enabling data transfer to various locations. However, its complexity is not suitable for all users.

A significant chunk of the web3 and blockchain industries are fueled by memes, from memecoins to meme-powered NFT projects, and now, the Memetaverse. Goblin Town makes an excellent example, having raked more than $30M (and counting) in secondary sales despite being a free mint, having no utility at launch, no marketing budget, and no roadmap nor promise made to holders. Why did it see such tremendous success in such a short time?
