An Actual House Is Also An NFT – Tech Tuesday In Two Minutes

Posted by

Buy The House Get The NFT.

That’s what a clever real estate agent in California came up with.
He’s auctioning off an actual house with a psychedelic piece of art (actually video) of the house.
Both the house and NFT are up for auction on OpenSea (one of the bigger NFT marketplace platforms).

This is more hype for NFTs than a new model of sales.

Still, it’s working.
We’re talking about it, aren’t we?

What’s that NFT thing again?

An NFT is a Non-Fungible Token.
Simpler: It’s a way to turn any digital item into a unique digital piece.
Think of it as digital provenance.

The full story is here: An Actual House Is An NFT Now (The Verge).

This is what Heather Backman and I discussed this morning over on Jack 103 FM for a couple of minutes.

What is Tech Tuesday?

If you ever find yourself wondering… What, exactly, is the point of TikTok? How can I make myself look better on a Zoom? Reddit? What’s that about? How do I help my kids be safer online? Who’s the latest creator and streamer that I should be checking out?

You are not alone.

Every Tuesday – for just a few minutes – I join Heather Backman (my old buddy from her days on CHOM FM) on the air at Jack 103 (Rogers Sports & Media) to give a quick blast about the current state of technology, media and Internet culture. We’re calling the segment Tech Tuesday (and we do it in just a few minutes).
