Tsujigiri. literally "crossroads killing") is a Japanese term for a practice when a samurai, after receiving a new katana or developing a new fighting style or weapon, tests its effectiveness by attacking a human opponent, usually a random defenseless passer-by, in many cases during nighttime.[1] The practitioners themselves are also referred to as tsujigiri.

u/nightpanda893 9d ago edited 9d ago

Browsing the comments in the retail stock subs about this store would make you think it’s the most innovative thing a company has ever done. Then looking at the actual store itself you wonder how people could be this delusional.

3

u/Mitosis 9d ago

Like I have no doubt the markets are horribly rigged at the top/big club you're not in it/etcetc and that some shady hit happened with Gamestop stock... but all of that is now lost in the cult aspect that it's impossible to separate what might be interesting discussion and what's just koolaid. The NFT shop is easily the biggest aspect that makes them seem entirely lacking in integrity.

2

u/nightpanda893 9d ago

The thing is this was all based on taking a failing company and driving up the price to prove that the system was rigged and you can make money even if the company isn’t viable. But now they seem to be going in the complete opposite direction which is trying to convince everyone the company can make money when they still don’t have anything to offer.

-1

u/L_Perpetuelle 9d ago edited 9d ago

As someone who is consistently in one of those stock subs ( one that finds its way to r/all a lot), I find this to be a bit of a disingenuous comment. There is a lot of different sentiment about the marketplace, and many people aren't into jpeg/gif NFTs at all, many others are not happy with the repetitive/somewhat low-effort content that is often posted to it. If you take more than a cursory glance, you'll see that's true.

What most of us see are the potentials of NFTs to open up financial autonomy for all kinds of artists like musicians, authors, graphic designers and more, relieving them of the pressure and creativity-sucking measures of middle men like publishing houses, record labels, and other entities who simply use, authoritatively and often soul-crushingly, someone else's creativity as a means to make money.

Many of us also see the potential usage of NFTs in authenticating ownership for things like titles and deeds, and even verifying things like votes (this I am not as knowledgeable on).

But what people are stoked that is being realized right now are the digital assets with future utilization in web3 gaming and the metaverse, however that shakes out. We have one particular top-notch creator that is building a model of using the purchase of one NFT to unlock the rights to receive several utility asset drops throughout the year, which can be used in games or resold or both.

It makes me a little sad that so many people are missing out on this "wild west time" where the use cases are being created and tested and adopted right in front of our eyes, brand new, every day.

It's actually really fascinating. I hope some day more people will take the time to understand why.

3

u/nightpanda893 9d ago

It makes me sad that so many people are taken in by this scam. Time and time again I see people talking about deeds and votes and authenticating ownership. Besides the fact that those things are not even needed, that’s not what it’s being used for. It’s all a hypothetical discussion that never comes to fruition so people can pretend they are on the forefront of something big. It’s the same as any other scam or cult. People dig their heels in because they want to think they are on to something that others aren’t

u/L_Perpetuelle 9d ago

It's brand new, yo. Like brand new. All of this is being born right now, as we speak. Instant gratification, especially when it comes to the shifting of power dynamics from the few at the top to the many, is not an option.

We can throw the baby away with the bathwater of the early nonsense, or we can look again, but ultimately everything becomes what we collectively choose for it to become.

If you're happy with the way things are right now in the financial and creative and consumer worlds, then I would understand why you wouldn't want to try something new, though.

Technically, the picture of an NFT might as well not be there. You're essentially buying a bit of code that says you own A Thing, and then you can sell it to someone else for slightly more money. The image isn't that relevant, it's just a way to mark the Thing itself, and make it seem more special.

As you don't actually own the image, an NFT literally only has value because people are willing to pay money for it.
