I am curious how people guarantee or insure that the NFTs will not be changed deleted or otherwise corrupted
Really depends on the nft. When you think about it, the world is full of nfts without block chains - phone numbers, email addresses, domain names. How do they not get changed or deleted?
https://moxie.org/2022/01/07/web3-first-impressions.html where he described an NFT he made that changed what image it showed depending on your referrer. it got removed from OpenSea
"People don’t want to run their own servers, and never will" At the risk of bringing up an inflammatory related topic from the past, some people tried to solve this, but they NFT aspect was the least contentious part
I was just about to point to m0xie's blog post point out just how mutable an NFT can be. What it implies is that an NFT doesn't represent ownership of an actual work, but the URL pointing to it. It's quite bizarre; I just assumed that the NFT itself (on the blockchain) would include at least something like a hash of the work it represents.
An nft is a deed of ownership It's up to the two parties to decide what the deed stands for. It's a reftype 🙂
You can agree that you get the same thing every time you "deref" it, but it doesn't have to be
yeah. and I understand why you can't put an image on the blockchain, for the same reason you can't (and wouldn't want to) put your house in a bank.
There's something for the sentimental value or nominal copyright holder, though. Just like you can display a painting non a gallery which is publicly accessible even though the painting is privately owned, why not an image? (Putting aside technical issues like copying)
> phone numbers, email addresses, domain names. How do they not get changed or deleted? if only someone had a talk mentioning exactly this topic... https://github.com/matthiasn/talk-transcripts/blob/master/Hickey_Rich/ValueOfValues.md
I don't think that's a misleading question, I think it's leading in another direction. NFTs as immutable values in a global namespace which may be references to something else slices the problem along a different axis
Since the NFT is the URL, not the thing the URL points to, you can't guarantee anything about what it points to, just the URL itself doesn't change (and is presumably unique?). You can't even guarantee the URL points at anything at all. NFTs seem like a really silly idea to me.
I would have used a more derogatory sentiment to describe NFTs. I'm just glad I don't have anyone in my immediate circles that are into this.
There are probably several users in this slack who now feel attacked or discouraged.
Can I have a poll please? 🙂 Questions: 1. Making trades that are favorable for us and unfavorable for the person who we are dealing with is just good market sense, agree or disagree? 2. As software tradespeople it's our job to identify productive niches where our skills are best compensated, agree or disagree? 3. Ultimately what matters is that everything has to be legal and done with full consent, and it's the participant's responsibility to deliberately make rational choices when it comes to giving that consent, agree or disagree? https://i.imgur.com/Dg3Tl8X.png
1. disagree. even from a very rationalist perspective, this is a repeated game. you want to not just make a good trade, but for the reciprocating party for have a similar feeling. Otherwise you invite conflict and discord 2. yes, then we rank them according to how we feel about them and see what we're willing to put up with 3. it depends. It's a good lowest common denominator, a good start, but we should aspire for more
seems like there are indeed some people who are "discouraged", but maybe not on the side you were talking about 🙂 ftr. I disagree with all three points. I even if people are more than willing to be mislead, I think it's not ok, even if this means that I have to take a heterodox stance.
This thread seems to equate properties of NFTs on Ethereum with properties of NFTs in general. Cardano might be the most interesting blockchain for functional programmers.
I do not know much about it except that Ethereum does not have native support for NFTs while others like Cardano does. I think that means that NFTs on Cardano are not merely pointers from a contract, but rather something you own. But I need to read up on this. Interesting field.
Also, any kind of token with use on its own is useful in this context. Attendance tokens or convention tickets can also be NFTs
That is what I'm starting to wrap my head around. Just like a webpage can be anything (not just the crummy things with rotating skulls playing midi from ~25 years ago), NFTs can be anything. They can be code snippets, only that they have the useful properties of ownership and scarcity.
anything is mostly things that can't be webpages, funnily enough. An average thing from the things that make up 'anything' is anything but a webpage.

AFAICT the success and failure of any crypto project atm seems to be how well it works to financialize the thing it represents. the novelty of NFTs isn't actually that it is a durable db that represents ownership - that is easy to do using non-blockchain tech - it's all the financial machinery built around crypto that allows people to trade them, speculate, loan them, etc. there's reasonable questions to ask about how well NFTs work to do this for certain use cases. whether it does or not, the next question is whether treating all these things as financial apparatus is good, actually. IMHO it is not but there are plenty of people who disagree.
There is a lot of disagreement here for sure, mostly because it's so rare that people actually spend time learning how crypto or distributed systems function. As in, how would you write your own distributed ledger from scratch, especially if you don't want to do the easy thing like bitcoin. But NFTs is another level, I just found out yesterday that in the English language there exist a saying that fits very nicely: https://idioms.thefreedictionary.com/sell+a+bill+of+goods
Anyone here has any experience with regression testing services which receive inputs over http and write them to Kafka?
I don't have any experience with that using Kafka specifically, but have with AWS SQS, for example. Are you looking for a review of your plan?
less a review of plans and more a suggestion for a game plan, approach, experience reports
2. For each use case, collect input HTTP req/resps, Kafka request/responses (if desired) and Kafka messages
Then in your testing, feed the HTTP reqs into your code, validate you get expected responses, send expected Kafka requests with appropriate body containing the messages for that use case.
I'm looking for a scheme impl that runs on an m1 Mac. anyone tried this yet? gnu/mit scheme doesn't officially support the platform but https://kennethfriedman.org/thoughts/2021/mit-scheme-on-apple-silicon/ to modify it to work. I'm looking for something that officially supports it
Yes, that works!
The MIT Scheme guide
And I believe that fix is in the master branch now
So the latest MIT Scheme will work for you @U4YGF4NGM
hmm there is kava <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/kawa/kawa-3.1.1.tar.gz>
in lib there is a jar which you can run
I’m not a scheme user but it should be pretty portable
@U067TPTUL has made a cool kawa clojure interop demo about a year ago: https://asciinema.org/a/388173
