Remember how everyone thought there was tons of liquidity in crypto?
Part of the reason is
>Terra Luna and projects like it were thought to be stable and capable of providing their insane APYs because...reasons
>FTX made us all believe they were fully backed. This means there's billions of dollars floating outside of their system - which they lost - while they put on the show that they have billions of dollars to cover every debt. It creates an illusion that crypto is financially very strong when people believe there's extra billions of liquidity in the system.

When those projects collapsed - mind you, not independent of one another - suddenly there is a massive bank run on everything crypto. This includes NFTs that were becoming an asset class in serious portfolios, not excluding the very exchanges/projects that would soon go "belly up". Everyone begins to realize there aren't those extra billions of dollars, and high APYs shifted too much wealth out of project ecosystems. Now the people who made all that money? They're seeing a sinking ship and aren't putting more money into unnecessary risks like NFTs.

tldr: everyone thought there was so much $ in crypto, but they were deceived. A lot of the money was already off exchanges and out in the "wild". When people realized this, panic ensued, projects and exchanges failed, and everything dropped.

The only NFTs that make sense are gamefi, and even then you have to balance that properly. A PvP game with a paid advantage is dead in the water. NFT's as a game license or for certain skins or PvE advantages, go right on ahead. The first call of duty warzone game is about to go offline and everyone who bought skins is losing them. They don't transfer to warzone 2 or offer any credits.

Most of my crypto money is on KAVA and that whole project's premise is bringing DeFi back into the Cosmos ecosystem, pretty much replace Terra Labs. Can't say I'm not a little scared about the recent bad sentiment towards DeFi in general. However, NFT's were clearly a complete fad and were never really meant to amount to anything, anyone that didn't see through the facade and the fact e-celebs and real celebs were selling smoke for a quick buck, they deserve getting scammed lol. What did BAYC ever offer besides retarded gimmicks, for example? Nothing.

>> No.56186534

I see you got lots of replies already about possible use cases for NFTs but most of these utilities are far fetched and might not be applicable to most people which makes it retain the "useless" tag. I recently came across an innovative concept where NFTs could be used as gates for smart vaults in Defi meaning that only holders of a particular NFT would have access to the features of these vaults. This makes lot of sense and would be generally more accepted since there's a significant amount if Defi users who are currently staking one token or the other.

Does anyone know what exactly owning a bored ape gets you? I know the obvious benefits like you own the art and the rights that entails, and the value of it so hopefully you can sell it later for a profit.

But, just how good are the member perks? I tried looking for any information or pictures, videos, demonstrations, etc. about the members-only events or even the private space on their website and I can't find anything at all. If anyone has personal experience I would be interested to hear about it.
