Klay Thompson’s long-awaited return to the Golden State Warriors was a joyous occasion for Dubs players, Chase Center attendees, and hoops fans alike. It was the sort of genuinely wholesome sports moment that borders on unimpeachable — just good vibes all around. And it seems to have ushered in the ending of, or at least a respite from, Steph Curry’s unfortunate flirtation with NFTs (non-fungible tokens).
For the uninitiated, NFTs are basically annoying evidence that you and you alone own some sort of digital item. There’s been lots of hoopla about the prestige of buying unique NFT art, NFT virtual trading cards, etc. If you are wondering why someone would want to own digital artwork, or what’s stopping a person from copying an esteemed, expensive piece of NFT art, well, you’re asking the right questions.
