Bitcoin and NFTs were invented because of a scarcity of scarcity. Someone decided that there isn't enough scarcity around and decided to make a bunch more scarcity so now we have an abundance of scarcity. A bona fide cornucopia of dearth.

There does seem to be way more less than there was before. Soon we will be at a maximum level of minimum.

If you’re all out of real scarcity, then store bought is fine.

Props to Jason Pargin here. He said way back when Playstation Home was trying to get in on Second Life's grift (wow I feel old) that the future would have Forced ARTificial Scarcity. Yes, he called it "FARTS". And even he couldn't have known just how much they'd stink.
