“Did you guys see the Matrix NFT they did for Resurrections a couple days ago?” The Verge’s Alex Heath asked. “They came out with 100,000 of them and the site broke within a few hours because there were 300,000 people in the queue trying to buy these NFTS.”
Heath added, “When you think about the concept of digital scarcity, and things that can’t be copied,” to which Reeves said, “that are easily reproduced”, before busting out into laughter.
For the blissfully unaware, a “non-fungible token” (NFT) describes the unique digital identifier that records ownership of a digital asset. Any digital creation – including a picture, a video, a piece of music or even a tweet – can become an NFT, with the most valuable selling for £50.3 million at a Christie’s auction in March.
