@srr24x7:envs.netsrr24x7Turned out completely retarded...23:09:07
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7
In reply to @mathijs:matrix.vgorcum.com
sure, but in code, so, you know, you don't know who made the receipt, and you don't know how it works with weird edge-cases
that doesnt sound non-fungible
23:09:11
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7i meani dunno what fungible means23:09:15
@srr24x7:envs.netsrr24x7😔23:09:18
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7but it sounds like funds eligable or something23:09:22

i meani dunno what fungible means
fungible means that it's unique
23:09:39
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7eliable to be sold.23:09:50
@mathijs:matrix.vgorcum.comMathijsie: a dollar bill is fungible, because you don't actually care which specific one you have, they all have the same value23:10:01
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7So a digital artist can't sell ten copies of the same piece of art?23:10:06
@srr24x7:envs.netsrr24x7

To quote wikipedia here:

A non-fungible token (NFT) is a unique digital identifier that cannot be copied, substituted, or subdivided, that is recorded in a blockchain, and that is used to certify authenticity and ownership

23:10:11
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7Or if they do, each NFT is unique, like a unique receipt has timestamp and datestamp etc.23:10:19

Luckily the web3 community is good at writing code and this never happens. Oh wait: https://web3isgoinggreat.com/?theme=bug

They can, because you only sell an URL. And you can upload the same thing to multiple servers
23:11:04
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7So it's not useful for musicians for example selling songs.23:11:14
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7if they want everyone to be able to buy it23:11:18
@mathijs:matrix.vgorcum.comMathijswhile non-fungible just means it's not interchangable with another object23:11:27
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaAnd because it is just a link the server can do whatever: https://www.theverge.com/2021/10/14/22726556/signal-founder-moxie-marlinspike-nft-whim-change-platform-shit-emoji-fragility23:11:38

You could use it for anything digital
23:11:46
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7 * if they want everyone to be able to buy it (and be able to resell it)23:11:48
@srr24x7:envs.netsrr24x7 As Sylvia said it's really just pointing at an URL 23:11:57
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7But what if you want to sell multiple copies of the same song its okay?23:12:00
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7And use NFTs for the proof of purchase, and so people can resell them easier.23:12:19

As Sylvia said it's really just pointing at an URL
technically there's no requirement for it to point to a URL
23:12:23
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7It sounds like it solves the problem of digital music.23:12:26
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7Cuz CDs and records and tapes you can sell.23:12:30
@mathijs:matrix.vgorcum.comMathijsyou could use it to represent any generic data23:12:37
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylvia
In reply to @mathijs:matrix.vgorcum.com

True it can be any small text string
23:12:38
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7But ever since digital downloads, hard to prove you own it, makes resale almost impossible.23:12:43
@SylvieLorxu:matrix.orgSylviaJust limited file size, too small to store a picture or anything23:12:51
@enigma9o7:matrix.orgenigma9o7can't just go down to the record store and sell some old CDs23:12:52
