每日英語跟讀 Ep.K326: About NFT - Bored Ape NFT worth $284,495 accidentally sells for just $2,844

A distracted trader accidentally sold a non-fungible token (NFT) for a hundredth of its market price.

一位分心的虛擬幣交易員意外地以市價百分之一的價格賣出一枚非同質化代幣( NFT )。

NFTs are the latest cryptocurrency phenomenon to go mainstream. In the simplest terms, NFTs transform digital works of art and other collectibles into one-of-a-kind, verifiable assets that are easy to trade on the blockchain.


The Bored Ape Yacht Club is a collection of 10,000 pieces of digital NFT art living on the ethereum (eth) blockchain.


Max, who goes by the username maxnaut , said the mistake happened after "a lapse of concentration" when he accidentally listed the NFT for 0.75 eth ($2,844) instead of 75 eth ($284,495).


He said that the NFT was instantly bought by an automated account, which later resold the piece for 59.99 eth ($227,558).

Hermès suing American artist over NFTs inspired by its Birkin bags NFTs創作靈感來自柏金包 愛馬仕控告美國藝術家

French luxury group Hermès has started legal proceedings against an American artist over virtual versions inspired by its famous Birkin bags.


Mason Rothschild creates digital art that he sells as non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, which can be traded online but ownership cannot be forged.


He named the works depicting fanciful furry Birkin bags “MetaBirkins” and sold them on websites dedicated to selling NFTs.


“Defendant’s MetaBirkins brand simply rips off Hermès’ famous Birkin trademark by adding the generic prefix ‘meta’to the famous trademark Birkin,” it said in its complaint filed in New York.


Rothschild said in an online post that he was not creating or selling fake Birkin bags.


“I’ve made art works that depict imaginary, fur-covered Birkin bags,” he said, adding that as art it was freedom of expression protected by the US constitution, “just as it gave Andy Warhol the right to make and sell art depicting Campbell’s soup cans”.

他說:「我所創造的藝術作品是描繪想像中包覆毛皮的柏金包」,並補充說,作為藝術,它是受美國憲法保障的言論自由,「就像它給予安迪.沃荷權利,來製造與和販售描繪康寶濃湯罐的藝術作品一樣。」Source article: ;
