05/08/2022 Michigan State now selling official Mel Tucker NFTs

For just 0.5 ethereum, you can become the proud owner of an exclusive NFTuck. Hopefully that sentence made sense to someone out there.

Here's a sentence that sure to send your grandfather into hypnosis: A Mel Tucker NFT can be purchased for just 0.5 ethereum.

What is an NFT? It stands for non-fungible token. What is a non-fungible token? It's the digital equivalent of a trading card. How is an NFT different than a GIF, a .jpeg or a screen shot? I.... I don't know.

What is a ethereum? It's a form of cryptocurrency. What is cryptocurrency? It's money... on the Internet. What tangible asset backs ethereum? The power of children's hopes and wishes.

Maybe someone at Michigan State or the NFT firm behind this promotion can explain the concept more coherently than that, but either way they would really like you to buy anNFTuck.

NFTs are what's next for Spartan Nation. Introducing unprecedented experiences and exclusive collectibles in NFT (Non-Fungible Token) form featuring Coach Mel Tucker. NFTuck™ is the first-in-the nation NFT drop for a Coach and Team that will give fans around the world the chance to be the first and only owner of NFTs from Coach Tucker, MSU players and the broader MSU sports world.

Michigan State is selling three NFTs: NFTuck Ring, NFTuck Coin, and NFTuck Shoe. I don't want to violate any Internet laws, but they're basically GIFs that look like this.

Owners of NFTucks will also get real world perks: an in-season private chat with Tucker, sideline access to a Spartan practice, and "ownership to exclusive digital content and commemorative moments from Coach Tuck."

Proceeds from NFTuck sales will go to the Boys & Girls Club of Southeastern Michigan. Presumably, those proceeds will be paid in American dollars.

CryptoPunk #9052
The CryptoPunks are 10,000 uniquely generated characters. No two are exactly alike, and each one of them can be officially owned by a single person on the Ethereum blockchain. Originally, they could be claimed for free by anybody with an Ethereum wallet, but all 10,000 were quickly claimed. Now they must be purchased from someone via the marketplace that's also embedded in the blockchain.
The Switch
The Switch is a unique, “one of one” NFT that demonstrates the evolution of artwork in the digital realm. The Switch is developed to change form at a specific point of time in the future, known by Pak. The evolution is determined and rendered immutable by smart contracts, or self-executing code on the Ethereum blockchain.
Block Chain Dungeon
Once upon a time... a little boy named Leo loved to paint, draw and experiment. He also loved to play with blocks and chains, which drew him again and again into the rooms of his friends Michel and Angelo. Often they also met in virtual rooms of Cryptovoxels, Decentraland, Somnium Space or Sandbox to create new inventions, read books about new technologies, or just swing the brushes. But on this day something gigantic happened. A good friend of Leo came to visit and brought his girlfriend Mona, who wanted a piece of Leo's art on her skin. This was the birth of the NFT's, as Leo developed Non Fungible Tattoos in the Block Chain Dungeon of Michel and Angelo. From that day on people from all over the world came to get NFT's from Leo or one of his students, like "Skeenee the rat", who controls the NFT machine with his laptop. A new age began.
