James Gurney on NFTs

James Gurney, in a reasoned post explaining NFTs to his rather large art-focused audience:

Does it make sense for every artist to leap into NFTs right now? I don't think it make sense for me—not yet anyway, until there's a better solution to the environmental issues.

I'm beginning to appreciate people who don't have quick, one-side-or-the-other, opinions on NFTs. Like me, Gurney seems optimistic yet hesitant. I'm with him. I think NFTs will be a thing. But I think they have an awfully long way to go and deserve the level of scrutiny they are currently getting.

As an aside, I interviewed Gurney several years ago. If you'd like to read that.
