Are you interested in NFT technology? Then read my extensive blog on the subject. Listen to my podcast or watch this NOS video I contributed to. (all in Dutch).

Or request a presentation from me on this subject.

About the author: Jarno Duursma is a technology expert, author and speaker in the field of digital technology. Creator of the ‘Listening to the future’ tech-podcast and regularly to be seen and heard in the Dutch national media.

Update: the auction for this object ended on 14 June 2021. The object was successfully sold to the highest bidder.

TL;DR version

NFT is a way of linking ownership to digital objects. Everything digital consequently becomes a kind of irreplaceable digital artwork. This leads to interesting and wonderful developments. I started this NFT project as an experiment and for research purposes. You learn the most by doing. I want to know: what works and what doesn’t? What is easy and what is difficult? It is not meant to make me rich. Any profit goes to a good cause. The video is meant as a joke, as self-mockery towards my own industry. I had a lot of fun making it. 🙂



The story behind the ‘Glitch in the metaverse’ NFT.

At the moment there is a lot of enthusiasm surrounding NFT technology. Expectations are high.

It reminds me of the high expectations surrounding blockchain technology in 2015 – 2017. I wrote the first Dutch book on Bitcoin blockchain in 2015. Since then I have given more than 150 lectures on it. So I know the enthusiasm, also in myself. The reality, however, is more complex.

You learn a lot about a subject by reading about it, writing about it, talking about it with others and making a podcast about it, but you also learn a lot by doing it. I did that with the subject of social media in 2012, Bitcoin in 2013, artificial intelligence in 2017 and deepfakes, synthetic media and avatars in 2019.

This video is meant as a gag, as a self-mockery towards my own field of profession. To put the current enthusiasm and high expectations into perspective. My message: Keep looking critically at the limitations, risks, overestimation of NFT’s.

“When your heart is aching

and your soul is in pain.

Then buy crypto’s, NFT’s

and drink a cup of blockchain.”

How can you buy the NFT? Please read the description below.

So how do I buy your NFT?

  • Get your crypto wallet, for instance, Metamask. This online wallet stores your ETH and processes transactions on the blockchain. A unique wallet address will be generated and you will use this address to complete transactions.
  • Add Metamask to the Chrome browser
  • Write down you seedphrase so you can always restore acces to your wallet
  • Buy Ethereum. You can get ETH, the digital currency that fuels transactions on the Ethereum blockchain, from Litebit.eu or Coinbase.
  • But Ether, go to your Ether wallet, Click the ‘send’ button in the Litebit wallet
  • Send your ETH to the Metamask wallet. (use the Metamask wallet adress. Be sure to be accurate!)
  • Go to Opensea.io and create a profile.
  • Then head to the top right profile icon and select “My Profile”.
  • You will then be prompted to connect your Metamask wallet.
  • When this is completed, your account will default to “Unnamed”, showing only your wallet address. Edit your profile.
  • Go to the auction (LINK)
  • Make an offer! (Read the Blog) (Read the OpenSea article).
  • (You place an offer to indicate what you would be willing to pay for it. You place a bid to provide the actual amount the buyer is asking for, or more.)

Disclaimer: This whole project is an experiment. I have thoroughly studied everything related to NFT, but you have to realise that it is an experiment. I am not accountable for the loss of Ethereum or any other cryptocurrency during this process. I am not accountable for the loss of your NFT if you don’t take care of that yourself. So do your own homework. When you buy my NFT or place a bid on it I am grateful, but I also have the right to reject your bid. I also have the right to cancel the whole project for any reason. I am not accountable for any losses whatsoever resulting from this project. Typos or misspellings reserved. The fact that I have started this NFT project is in no way an encouragement to buy NFTs or to invest in cryptocurrency. As an extra bonus when selling this NFT, I will include you in a LinkedIn, Twitter and newsletter message, but the exact content will be determined by me as the author. I am open to any suggestion and always friendly, but in the end I decide the principles. So hopefully you will want to help make this experiment a success and give the students in the orphanage in Bali a good future. Thanks for your support!

Kind regards, Jarno
