NFTs fully embody the idea of artificial scarcity. NFT drops are rarity generators.

A driving ideology with "tech" people: what is new is good.

This idea is not a good game model. It’s a sign the game isn’t fun. If you feel a game
should be paying you for your time… you should quit playing the game, because it’s
clear the experience is not worth the admission to you.
