“When people buy Weird Whales, they’re investing in me and my future”
As stated in futurism.com, the latest news from the world of NFTs — those dubious digital ownership certificates for art, media, and just about anything else bought and sold over the blockchain — is the story of a 12-year-old boy who’s made a small fortune selling pixelated doodles to thousands of
suckers, sorry, crypto enthusiasts.
Benyamin Ahmed told CNBC that he’s fascinated by the concepts of blockchain tech and NFTs, and the time he spent playing games like “Minecraft” and chatting with other NFT creators inspired him to program a set of his own. And hey, shame on us for assuming that the NFT fad had already faded into irrelevance, because right now Ahmed is sitting on nearly $400,000 in Ethereum after his NFT collection sold out overnight.
