  • Hi, Martius Applegreen here! Wow, such an amazing video. Amazing way to use history to explain non-fungible. Currently doing my 100 hours of homework and stumbled on your video pretty insane this video only has 17.000 views. Looking forward to seeing how the world has evolved from today in 2021!

  • I think audience doesn't understand him.

  • Wow. Here we are in 2021 and I've made 6 figs from NFTs. lmao.

  • I like his over all speech but I was looking for the more esoteric speech. Life, the value of a human if non-fungable. It can not be switched to balance the scales.

  • at 06:11 Roham mentioned Home is non-fungible but we can sell it and convert it into money, am I missing something?

  • Roham is good. The success of Dapper Labs is well deserved

  • Revolutionary. The world will look back at this video and say "wow Roham knew".

  • David Graeber's Debt: The First 5,000 Years absolutely makes this TED talk look like a waste of time. LMAO.

  • Excellent intro to NFTs.

  • nba topshot brought me here ๐Ÿ€

  • Amazing that this has less than 10k views. When I come back in 5 years I expect this to be the top comment, donโ€™t let me down YouTube.

  • Users only own the recipe by which cryptokitties are made, i.e. the "DNA" and rules for combining the traits. However, the process of making the image we are all familiar with from that digital recipe is, in fact, tightly held by his company. So, you don't have copyright of the image of your kitties, just the digital uniqueness of how to make one via their proprietary process.

  • Sounds like a very strong advertisement.

  • Good talk

  • first
