What the fuck are "digitally wearable shirts" when they're at home?

Blue I’m guessing, being as it’s Everton.


I have no idea either, but if you’re going to set a “joke” up

I’ve tried reading up on NFTs several times but I don’t get it. Paying for something intangible.

Like a signed photo on a computer. Could I not just screenshot it and then i have it twice?

The answer is probably in Alan’s link but I’m not that keen. I’ll just ignore them again until it pops up in my life again, only to not understand and continue to ignore

I wonder if you hand over your well-earned cash and they give you some form of licence to be able to have the IP inherent in the shirt design licenced to you for display on your own personal electronic devices without any right to commercial exploitation?

Seems like a fucking shit idea.

I sat through a presentation about them a few weeks ago. When it comes to 'clothing' the guiding principle is that demand exceeds supply, so what you offer gains in value. Others are based on opportunities to win things you can't buy, a bit like a raffle ticket.

I kind of understand it, but don't really get it

It's a casino, plain and simple. You buy in not because the thing has value, but because you hope it will have more value in the future. It's a market based entirely on speculation.

See the US Housing Crisis of 2008 for details on how speculative markets tend to work out.

Ajax banning signs asking for players shirts. Bravo.
There was one in Portugal that just read “Coady give me your shirt”

Straight to the point, no bullshit.

Kids these days. Won't even put "please" on a sign.

Hang on, I can buy digital clothes now can I?

Wtf is this nonsense

I mean at least if you are buying cards on FIFA you can use them in the game.

Buying digital t shirts which you can’t use in any way other than potentially as your avatar. In the hope that someone more stupid than you pays you money for it I’m future? Less useful than a Star Wars tazos or Pokemon cards!
