NFT Array Debuts To Save You Right Click On Someone’s Valuable Digital Art

A site called NFT bay debuted to do “all NFT [sic] on the Ethereum & Solana blockchains “available for download via the torrent client of the visitor’s choice.

The idea behind non-fungible tokens (NFTs) is that someone can purchase a digital artwork – which includes anything from a portrait to World Wide Web source code – using the same technology from blockchain as cryptocurrency transactions. This way the artist can be paid for their work and the buyer has proof that they have the DTV.

Here’s the problem: The artwork associated with an NFT is just a file. Nothing prevents anyone with a web browser from right-clicking on the NFT and downloading a copy of this art to their system. Now people won’t even have to right-click themselves; all they have to do is torrent a bunch of art from The NFT Bay.

Buying an NFT is like buying bottled water even if a fountain offers the exact same water for free. The buyer spends money they don’t need to spend (and, because hitting an NFT requires computing power, inflicting more damage to the environment) in exchange for nothing but the theoretical property of this water.

Or as The NFT Bay creator Geoffrey Huntley explains in the site the description: “As Web 2.0 hosts are known to go offline (404 errors), this handy torrent contains all NFT files [sic] so that future generations can study these generations [sic] tulip mania and collectively go … ‘WTF? We destroyed our planet for THIS ?! ‘”

The site also appears to be a faithful replica of the NFT theme from The Pirate Bay, a website that we at Tom’s Hardware only saw in screenshots. It claims to contain 14.9 TiB and 4.2 TiB from NFT taken from the Ethereum and Solana blockchains, respectively, but we have not verified the authenticity of the files.
