This torrent website allows users to hack all NFTs on a blockchain
With the growing craze for NFT, more and more people are creating and investing in their own non-fungible tokens. The idea behind NFTs is that someone can purchase a digital work of art, which includes anything from a portrait to a cartoon character to the source code of the World Wide Web, using the same blockchain technology that powers the cryptocurrency world. This allows the artist to be paid for his work and the buyer can claim proof that he owns the work of art. There is a problem, however. The NFT is only an electronic file and nothing prevents anyone from right-clicking and downloading a copy.
But right-clicking on each NFT file to download can be a tiring process. So, an Australian artist, Geoffrey Huntley, launched a website that allows users to torrent the full value of an NFT blockchain. It’s aptly called the NFT Bay, which is an exact mirror image of The Pirate Bay. Many believe that Huntley’s site could spark an interesting debate about what it means to claim ownership of something on the Internet.
âPeople are dropping millions of instructions on how to download images,â the description on the NFT bay page. âThat’s why you can right-click Save As, because these are standard images. The image is not stored in the blockchain. The image is not stored in the blockchain contract. As Web 2.0 hosts are known to go offline, this handy torrent contains all of the NFTs so that future generations can study this generation’s tulip mania and collectively become “WTF?” We destroyed our planet for this, âhe adds.
The main section of the NFT array contains a number of individual non-fungible tokens. It has around 18TB of NFT from a database on Ethereum and Solana blockchains, which is, to say the least, a lot of images. All of these images can be downloaded through the visitor’s preferred torrent client.
