Plate and Croissant NFT

Raise some funds auctioning the HB icon

Auction off a non-fungible token of the halfbakery's plate and croissant icon. (See more info on NFTs at the link below.) Shirley some well-to-do baker or alumnus is willing to pay more than the advertised 50¢. Proceeds to bakesperson for continued maintenance and upkeep of the place. And of course all usage rights would be maintained.

NFTs are just getting underway and are very successful. I understand @jack has the bidding for the first ever tweet up in the 2 millions now.

       But which plate and croissant icon? The one you see up there in the top-left of your screen is not the original one.
hippo, Mar 08 2021

       Technically (unless we see each others screens in person) we each see a different one.   

       Some might argue that you see a different one 50 or 60 times a second but that would be silly so let us not argue that.

       I recommend the Nyan Cat link for some ideas on both of those observations.

       [When meme culture meets tulip bulbs] modern con artists rejoice?   

       We are about due another soapy pop aren't we, been a long time since dotcom & crypto currency hasn't really delivered yet.

       I've got a NFT for sale here which represents the first ever NFT purchase transaction - anyone?
hippo, Mar 08 2021

       For some odd reason I was expecting the plate and croissant to become some sort of newfangled halfbaker coat of arms, or secret society like the skull and bones.

       IMHO, "NFT"s are the personification of "a fool and his money are soon parted". Spending thousands (or millions) on something worthless just because some-one else wants it.
neutrinos_shadow, Mar 08 2021

       It's not fungible, doesn't that mean that no-one else wants it?

       Real Estate values in Vegas are entirely based on this premise. Who wants to live in a desert town where old acts go to die?
RayfordSteele, Mar 09 2021

       But it is an act you blindly love.

       Suddenly NFT seems to be mentioned everywhere. Having performed a cursory investigation, I think it's something I can safely ignore entirely.
