So, you may have come across the recent Business Insider, “A metaverse mega yacht that just sold for $650,000 is the most expensive NFT sold in The Sandbox virtual world.” Or, perhaps you came across the news story that the President of El Salvador is planning to build a “Bitcoin City” at the base of an active volcano? Or maybe you’ve just been seeing a bunch of really weird cartoon-like illustrations of monkeys and lions on your newsfeed or timeline and are wondering what they’re all about? And why they’re selling for tens — sometimes hundreds — of thousands of dollars?

Well, in this episode of Upstream, we’ll tell you how all of these things are related.  If you don’t know what NFTs — the latest phenomenon in the crypto, blockchain, asset speculation world — are, if you’ve heard of NFTs but want to know more, or if you want to hear why NFTs might be leading us to an (even more) dystopian future — this episode has got you covered.

Upstream brought on two guests to help unpack the NFT craze:
