With the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain catching momentum, many social media influencers have also jumped on to the scene.

‘Have People Lost Their Minds?’

Amidst all the blockchain and NFT craze, Twitch streamer Asmongold has very strong views that he shared with the world recently.

“Am I the only one who finds people scrambling to spend thousands of dollars on a picture of a monkey ridiculous?” asked the Twitch streamer to his audience via via his official Twitter handle. He seemed to question the real-world use of NFTs.

“Am I out of touch, or have people lost their minds?”


While his question was legit, few people on the Internet thought that it was framed in a misleading way. These people went on to defend NFTs and put forth their own opinions.

“Of course it sounds ridiculous when you phrase it like that. But you can say the same thing for WoW. “Am I the only one who finds people scrambling to spend thousands of dollars on a game they already paid for, to keep playing it?”

However, while a small portion of the online community disagreed with Asmongold, the general consensus was that NFTs are valauable but only if used in the right manner.

 One comment said “The technology will evolve and be very valuable but yes, things like BAYC and profile pic NFTs are cringe. Agreed.”
