Does anyone care about BDC enough right now to pay for one of these things? Apparently someone cares. This "card" is going for over 5K

This NFT is limited to just one edition. This NFT commemorates Bryson’s raw power and the distance that comes along with it. With his newfound distance, Bryson can attempt shots that most cannot. In addition to winning...

 

Seems like a stupid way to spend money.

Don't you want to get an early jump on the BDC IPO? Ha.

Maybe it is the autographed US Open Flag and chance to meet him in person that is the real value?

Yet another proof that some people has too much money. With the entire world as market place, a Prince in Dubai can purchase one for a million USD without it even being noticeable on the bank account. Power to anyone making money off this. I get the hype as a new concept, but not sure about the longevity. At least for trading cards. There are probably better pieces of media one can buy like this and which will have a market in the future. But I’m probably wrong. Never was good at predicting the future.

Buying the BDC thing is more a financial support to him. Now anyone with some kind of public image will want to jump on the train and make some money on a photo ran through some filters and with some added text. Heck, I’d probably do it myself.

I haven’t studied the concept of NFT or how this can be applied to other kind of media, but if it can help protect digital IPs better of artists that actually create something I’d want to own, it might be a good idea.

Physical paintings are sold for millions, so why not digital ones too.

What I do not understand is why anyone would pay thousands+ for a digital trading card.

Because what something is worth is based on the value people place upon it, rather than the value the object itself inherently has. What is a Mickey Mantle rookie card but a printed piece of cardboard?

I bet someone is taking a risk and hoping this “card” will increase in value, so it can kind of be looked at as an investment. It’s not my cup of tea, but I don’t think it’s a stupid way to spend money.

  • iacas changed the title to Bryson DeChambeau Releases NFT, then Tiger

I've never been into autographs, so this doesn't interest me, but I can see some people thinking it's cool and unique.  Seems smart of Tiger and Bryson to try it.

In a world where ¨serious¨ people laud John Cage for writing a piece of music that consists of nothing but silence, and Salvatore Garau can create and sell an invisible sculpture, is this stuff really that strange?

But I confess, I have pirated copies of both of these.  I listen to the John Cage work while looking at the Garau sculpture all the time, right here in my living room.  Or wherever I am.

    • The best car ever doesn't get a single photo posted.🙄  That's some bullsh... 😜😆 Pic from day one of Jeep Jam:
    • Day 109 (15 Oct 21) - stopped by the public driving range near the beach place.  Had the old Wilson Killer Whale driver and Strata 7i with me, so it made a good time to work on setup.  Got in some great swings, enough such I am thinking to gaming the Whale in my next round. 
    • Day 76: Continued with reinforcing my trail hand grip correction throughout the day. Later worked on full swing, starting with grip, address, a couple rehearsals of backswing and transition to delivery position, and then hitting ball. Today's focus was mostly face control/palmar flexion, making sure my start line is in my general desired area for my ball flight (push draw).
    • DAY 35: Orange Whip Trainer while out on the trail at Jeep Jamboree (15 min). 😁 O|||||||O
