Cartoonist Scott Adams has created and is selling two NFT versions of a Dilbert comic strip
– identical except for a curse word added to one of them.
For those who wonder, NFTs are digital art that is collectible because the original is registered on the blockchain. Yes, anyone can copy digital art. But you can’t copy its entry on the blockchain, which makes it collectible. Does that make rational sense? Nope.
Scott seems to being having fun with it.
And if he makes a couple hundred thousand off it, so much the better.
Of course, as Adams suggested, it doesn’t have to make rational sense to make money.
Nor does it make a ton of sense to pay extra for a curse word, but the top (and thus far only) bid on the PG-13 version is over $7,077. As of the time this article was published, no one has bid on the PG strip.
