Something the "right click save" people need to understand, is that NFTs don't represent ownership as in "only I can use/see this content". We're not building paywalls. We're building systems where you can click on an image, see its creator, and who financially supported them. https://twitter.com/eevee/status/1484760312188309509

With the new Twitter update, I can now go into someone's profile, click their pfp and instantly know who the artist is. Sure, "you don't _neccesarily_ need the blockchain to do this", but you'd need all companies to agree on using a global database. Ethereum is that database.

✅ NFTs enable a model of patronage, where some people pay for art for everyone else to enjoy. ✅ NFTs serve as a global database of art, that anyone can use. It's not limited to "just DeviantArt" or "just Twitter"
